I have been tinkering lately with a few ideas for blog entries, but none of them came out well. I decided to go ahead and post so that people wouldn't think that I'm not paying attention to things.

-MJ has decided to take a partial ownership role with the Charlotte Bobcats. With some good rookie moves and a short-term push for good press, this team might be able to get into the playoffs in a few years. Look what Cleveland did with Lebron; one player can make a remarkable difference in this league. I would love to see the Bobcats and Hurricanes join with the Panthers in terms of state-wide popularity. That would be incredible.

-JJ Redick and Ben Roethlisberger get screwed over. I won't say anything else. I actually liked them as players and don't feel like joining the media throng telling them how stupid they are.

-The U.S.A. sucks. Big time. OK so maybe soccer isn't our biggest contribution to the world in any way. And maybe the Hurricanes are now in jeopardy of not bringing home the Cup. Am I fairweather fan? Hey, you mind your own business. (In the spirit of karma, the US really stinks at soccer. Cmon Italy).

-College of Charleston's Tom Herrion is fired. In June? With 5 years left on his contract? Wow, Lunardi better take them off his '07 bracketology. This returning group of starters/punks will have no one to tell them not to kill each other (not that Herrion was all that good at discipline anyway). Will this open the door for a Wildcat repeat? Watch out for Chattanooga, even though Shulman says that his team is not one that likes to shoot (I love that, so much!).

-This weekend is Father's Day. Go share a beer with the old man and watch the College World Series. Nothing like those metal bats. Go Clemson!

Herrion getting fired is the best thing that could have possibly happened to C of C. There will be a lack of organization at first, but it's not going to be hard to have more control of the team than Herrion. If Peterson gets the job, then the Cougars will be a force to be reckoned with. As much as I want to see the Wildcats rule the SoCon, the College could soon again rise to the top.
