to hate like this is to be happy forever

I finished my annual re-read of Will Blythe’s To Hate Like This Is To Be Happy Forever this week. It seemed important to finish it before Duke at Duke, because usually I try to finish it before the ACC season even starts. I didn’t this year, because December was occupied by house-buying, and then I…

But then, like all villains in scary movies, Steve Spurrier came back for one final scare. Yep, he took over the South Carolina head-coaching job. — Clay Travis, Dixieland Delight Go Heels. Beat the Cocks.

2, 3, & 4. Spent the weekend with the Paternal Unit, who flew down for the UNC series at the Bosh, against Duke. Beautiful weather on Saturday and Sunday, and Friday’s foul weather meant we got to catch a true day-night doubleheader yesterday.

Nine. Patrick Johnson, who Coach Fox once referred to as the kitchen sink, struck out a career-high 12 in seven scoreless innings last night; he was still touching the mid-90s at the end of his 129 pitch outing. It was masterful. Although to be fair, I would primarily classify the University of Maryland baseball team…

college baseball: clemson @ unc

Five, six, and seven. The best thing about Clemson baseball, besides how many curse words head coach Jack Leggett knows, is knowing that all those Clemson fans had to live in Clemson, South Carolina at one point. It’s very satisfying. Of course, so is a three game sweep starting with two ass-whoopings and finishing with…
