THE BAD WEATHER, IT’S ON THE WAY
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for today and tomorrow. Go get your bread and milk now!
My take: As you can see below, we’ve postponed the United Way Day of Basketball until Sunday, Feb. 21. The good news is that we wanted to get out way ahead of this storm — which seems legitimate. The bad news is that you now get to hear about this for three more weeks. Woo-hoo!
WILLIE NELSON’S BAND BUSTED IN KENANSVILLE (AND A HOT RUMOR)
A strange thing happened in Kenansville last night — Willie Nelson canceled his scheduled concert with an injury, then members of his band were cited for possession of marijuana and moonshine.
Sounds like a country song, eh?
My take: OK, some insider knowledge here … with this caveat — I wasn’t there, but this is from a VERY, VERY reliable source.
Evidently, Ol’ Willie was outside his bus smoking a doobie in plain view of the public when a Duplin County law enforcement type approached him and politely said something to the effect of “Mr. Nelson, we’re going to look the other way on this, but please go back into your bus to do that.”
As the story goes, Willie got pissed off and canceled the show, which led the authorities to search his band. They discovered the weed and moonshine and charged the band members with possession.
And as Paul Harvey would say — if he was still alive — that’s the rest of the story. If it’s true.
THE HOOS BREAK MY HEART INTO 1,000 PIECES
The Virginia Cavaliers led by 10 points with less than 4 minutes left in last night’s home game against Virginia Tech, but hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to send the game to overtime.
In OT though, the God-fearing young men from the University of Virginia lost a hard-fought battle to the godless turkey-worshipping hordes from VPI, 76-71.
My take: What hurts worse about this is that UVa could’ve been 4-1 in the ACC going into Chapel Hill Sunday night. Now, the Hoos have lost back-to-back league games as they head into the House That Dean Built (That Matt Doherty Nearly Tore Down Before Ol’ Roy Came To Save The Day).
So here it is: who wants to place a bet on the game? Name the stakes, give me some points and we’ll settle our bet at the UWDOB on Feb. 21. In case you forget, I lost last year’s bet … so it AIN’T happening this year.
