Unbelievable

You know all of those sports movies where a guy takes the last free throw to win or lose the game? The ball bounces in slow motion and just seems to sit on the front of the rim.Well, this isn’t a movie and no matter how many times I have watched it, I’m still amazed. Check this out…dude shoots a free throw and the ball literally comes to rest on the front of the rim for what seems like forever. This is just unbelievable. Continue reading Unbelievable

What Should I Do?

On the eve of the start of another NBA season, there are mixed emotions. As a lifelong Cleveland Cavalier fan (and native Clevelander), I view this upcoming season with mixed emotions. I love basketball. Over the years, I have loved the NBA less and less. It’s not the same anymore. College hoops are so much more pure and enjoyable. But I still watch the NBA. For the last 7 years, we Cleveland fans have had arguably the best player in the NBA to watch night after night. We grew used to it. We were….spoiled. I have never had a problem … Continue reading What Should I Do?

For What It’s Worth

Image by Getty Images via Daylife If it means anything at all, this is the first time all week I have even looked at the NCAA brackets for this year. It’s 12:00am on Wednesday as I type this. By now I usually have Carolina written into the sweet 16 (even in off years) and fill in the brackets accordingly. I’ve done it that way for 20 years. Not this year. The dark cloud over the Heels this year caused “the boy” and I to not watch nearly as much college basketball as we normally do. With that in mind, Here’s … Continue reading For What It’s Worth

A Night To Remember!

Wow. Alright, let me just get the only bad part of the our Opening Night visit to Conseco Field House for the Pacers game out of the way…Tyler Hansbrough (the reason we got the tickets) did not dress. Well, he was dressed, but it was a suit and dress shoes. His bad shin is “this close” to being ready to play. While that was a bit of a buzz kill, it did not put a damper on a great, great night for “the boy” and I. I couldn’t even make this up, check this out…. 1. He got on the … Continue reading A Night To Remember!

The comeback that fell short

Most of you will probably be glad that UNC is out tonight so I will stop blogging about them (although they have a wicked sweet baseball team too). One final post after the loss to Kansas. I’ll give UNC credit, they made it worth watching in the 2nd half. Danny Green (he of the 6 turnovers) had a 3 that went all the way around the rim and out which would have brought the once 28 point lead to 2. It was amazing. Then they ran out of gas. It was a lot of fun this year. Hansbrough will probably … Continue reading The comeback that fell short

A Carolina Christmas

I didn’t do a whole lot of posting the past few weeks, but it was a Carolina Christmas at the Conrad household! It started when Heather got me the Carolina flag which now flies outside our home on game day. I also received a Carolina tie which will come in handy for dress up days. Austin was the real winner this year though. His gifts included a UNC snow hat (which also fits me), a UNC Hoodie (which doesn’t fit me) and a wicked sweet Tyler Hansbrough jersey! We haven’t been able to take it off of him long enough … Continue reading A Carolina Christmas

By Request – Game Recap

I was going to let the TAR HEEL WIN go by with nothing more than the pictures in my previous post. That being said, I have been getting emails, phone calls and text messages all day. You’d think I would be the one sending them out boasting. It’s cool though. The reality is, I live in Buckeye country, which makes me a Buckeye. However, in case you missed it, I am a Tar Heel fan, living in Columbus. Talk about a man without a country! (Insert village idiot jokes here). As you can see, we stayed true to the rules … Continue reading By Request – Game Recap

Time’s Up….

In the movie “Pretty Woman”, Richard Gere surprises Julia Roberts by taking her on a trip to see an opera. She gets all dressed up and as they are boarding the elevator to leave for a trip to a destination which is unknown to her, she delivers one of the best lines in the movie. She simply says: “In case I forget to tell you later, I had a really good time tonight” I know most of you will be glad that today is finally here so I will quit blogging about it. That being said, the day I have … Continue reading Time’s Up….

Being Cavalier

This is awesome!!!! I don’t know who did it, but hopefully they are getting paid WELL by the Cleveland Cavaliers. You can read the entire article HERE. The Cavs just moved into their new Gazillion dollar training facility yesterday. GM (and former Duke player) Danny Ferry walked into his new office to find it completely decorated with North Carolina colors and logos. According to the article, he was none to pleased. I think it looks great! Wonder if I could hire their decorators for my office? GO HEELS!!!! Continue reading Being Cavalier
