Y'all come back now, y'heah?
So the Rally in Raleigh (who needs Don King anyway?) was a blast, but there are a few questions.
Most importantly, why be so exclusive in sucking up to the hosts? The speakers (inasmuch as they were audible from the cheap seats) made a big to-do over John E having gone to State, and made no reference at all to meeting his wife at UNC. I know it seems a small thing, but Tarheel fans are scattered all over the state (and then some) -- and the G-lover reports that the Dean himself was seated front and center. Did somebody think a fight would break out? Or is UNC School of Law not prole enough for the John E image?
It's not infuriating, but odd to see an opportunity missed.
Perhaps those nagging questions about the ticket stampeding to the "center" should be left for another post.
