It's been over 24 hours now. My wife is probably glad I'll quit talking about if he will or if he won't return. I wanted to write this yesterday but this is my first chance to get enough time to put it all into words. Before I really get into it, I need to unpack [...]
Last night UNC beat duke in the first of their two meetings this season. It was a great game and the rivalry never disappoints. Immediately following the game, the fans "stormed the court." As soon as ESPN cut to the highlights of the game, they began to question if this should have been done. This, [...]
In reality the Carolina Way has always been about how Carolina played the game. It was about the effort players bring, playing as a team and executing the system. It was never about winning. Winning is merely the happy consequence of playing the game as closely to those values as possible. (Source)

I love this town. Last night around 9:45 I was less than pleased. Chris Perez had just blown a critical save for the Indians.....again. With so much riding on every win and loss at this point in the season, our beloved Indians cannot afford to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. It doesn't help [...]
Have you been watching the NBA Finals? Even if you haven't you've probably seen an unfamiliar name trending on twitter and featured in the highlights on ESPN. Former Tar Heel Danny Green is literally setting Finals records with a 3-point shooting display beyond imagination. He passed "being on fire" around game 3 and it now [...]
Have you ever quit a dream job? Ever get let go from a job? Ever end a relationship or quit training for something only to regret or miss it after time passed? Today I watched a press conference for new Cavaliers Coach, Mike Brown. Look, I'm a Cleveland guy so I still follow the teams [...]
You have no idea how much this sickens me. Honestly. For a guy that bleeds Carolina Blue, it was very difficult to fill out this bracket. But it is that season and we are diehard college hoop fans at our house. The other 4 members of my house actually completed their brackets Sunday night. In [...]
I love seeing this guy in a Cavaliers uniform! One of my top 10 favorite Tar Heels making an impact. Sometimes you just need the right system. Lord knows he's always been a great shooter. Textbook jump shot.
On Saturday night, "The Boy" and I again had the opportunity to attend a Cleveland Indians game in the Social Media Suite. If you're not familiar, the Cleveland Indians grabbed the opportunity to be the leader in Social Media for Major League baseball a few years ago. They created a place for fans to attend [...]
The following is an Austin Conrad production. Written, produced, created by and starring Austin Conrad. Well done dude. All we have to do now is sit back and watch the scholarship offers come pouring in. http://vimeo.com/46384131
In all the books I've ever read about fatherhood, I have yet to find one that listed "agent" as one of the duties. Maybe the world has changed and evolved since those books were written. Maybe it's just our town, but based on what I'm hearing, it's everywhere. It's a little crazy, but it is [...]
We didn't have "flat bills". We folded ours and put them in our back pocket. Our hats weren't fitted. They were mesh in the back and had snaps to make them fit. We didn't have fancy logos, letters or numbers on the hats. Our teams didn't have fancy names. We were sponsored by a local [...]
