The Gore report

The Gore report

Here it is, sports fans. The Ashvegas police report that an officer collected from pro golfer Jason Gore after his fancy 2004 black Ford SUV was broken into. The report was filed June 13, but it was big news this past weekend at the U.S. Open in Pinehurst when Gore joked about it, saying all the thieves got was some[Read More…]

Blog bits: Batman

Blog bits: Batman

Getting a Batman fix in WNC I found this recently and thought it was pretty cool. Link to it here. Read on: There’s more in western North Carolina than a cave for those “Bat-fans” seeking to combine travel trivia – and beating both tourism and public relations folks to the punch. But don’t forget Bat Cave in Henderson County. GOTHAM:[Read More…]

What did they just say?

Oh, the joys of live television. Let’s recap, just to be sure we heard right over the past few days: Julie Weather? Russ “Nice Buns” Bowen was tossing the talk over to Julie “It’s a wonder I’m ever right” Wunder the other night, when he blundered. “And now let’s go to Julie Weather…” Russ corrected himself, and joked it off[Read More…]

Rashad, lame

Rashad, lame

Rashad McCants’ stock continues to drop faster than a pair of Katie Holmes’ panties, this time during a stop over in Charlotte to work out with the Bobcats today. Just 45 minutes into his warmups, Rashad pulled a hammy. He apparently sat around the rest of the time making faces, according to the video tape I saw on the news,[Read More…]

WANTED: One WLOS anchor

WANTED: One WLOS anchor

As I mentioned in my blog bits post, it’s been months since WLOS said goodbye to anchor Frank Cracker and WLOS has yet to name a successor. Scott “Scottie-too-Hottie” Wickersham appears to be the heir apparent, but as far as I can tell, it’s not a done deal. In fact, there’s still a job posting on the local TV station’s[Read More…]

Jawad looking for some respect

Jawad looking for some respect

The one guy from the super-talented Tar Heels national championship squad that nobody really seems to be talking about much as we approach the NBA draft is Jawad Williams. ‘Wad, the behind-the-scenes leader of the crew, the guy who started ahead of Marvin Williams, one of the guys who stuck it out through the lean Doherty years.

Blog bits: What was Tammy wearing?

Blog bits: What was Tammy wearing?

Tammy all dolled up What was Tammy wearing the other night – some sort of crimson jacket with a high-collared, sequined thing underneath. She looked like a freakin’ Vegas showgirl or something. Tammy, you got a gig on the side, or what? We’re used to seeing Tammy around town in a ballcap and jeans, looking more like a dude than[Read More…]

What about those rocks?

What about those rocks?

I wanted to follow up on my visit to Dave’s Avant Garden last week. I had a great time checking out Dave’s rock stacks. Dave is passionate about rocks like no one I’ve met before.

In the garden, it’s berry-pickin’ time

I had a blast harvesting my first few handfuls of berries in the garden Saturday morning before the rains moved in. I’ve got raspberries and blackberries and they’re just now turning. I had to cover them up during that late cold spell we had earlier in the year and the plants have been just fine. It looks like I’ll have[Read More…]

A shout out to Hey!-wood County

Maybe I’m not like most bloggers. Maybe most bloggers want to toil in obscurity, just putting their shit up on the web and hoping nobody notices. Not me. I want people to read me.
