I talk trash about soccer mainly because at my son's academy they don't have a football program but they're real big into soccer. My kid's like his dad, he's built for comfort not built for speed, and I regret that he won't get to play football.

I like football. In fact nearly every morning, when I get out of bed, I still have a flood of vivid memories from the time I played.



Yawn, stretch, crack, ouch, pop, ouch, creak, ouch.

MY favorite contact sport is lacrosse personally (having played it through high school). Unfortunatly well you know there is nothing like the fall for spending weekends doign absolutly nothing constructive. Unless oyu call manajoring your fantasy team constructive.

Well then I mus be a girl cause I lurrrve soccer. Playing it that is. I don't undertand why anyone would want to watch someone else playing it. I'd be jealous cause they are having all the fun and I am just watching. Even worse would be watching it on TV. That would really be depressing.

"BTW, Ricky Proehl's daughter goes to the same academy that my son attends, and he came over to the school and met with the kids and gave out autographs. That was mighty nice of him. It made a real impression."



Not surprising, considering that he's a Deac!

I pull for the Panthers primarily because they seem like the good guys in a league full of prima donnas like T.O. and headcases like Ricky Williams.

Wake is playing VT on Saturday, October 9th. I have no doubt that there will be more VT fans there than WF fans. We'll try to make you feel at home (In other words, we'll try to put some newspaper down).



Most VT fans (like State and Clemson last year) probably think they'lll roll into Groves and come out with a solid W. I'm looking forward to seeing the inevitable Orange and Maroon hemorrhage leaving our stadium just like State and Clemson last year. This is the ACC. In other words, you won't find any Temple's and Rutger's in our conference.



Bet on Wake to cover the majority of their games this year and you can make some decent money by season's end. Go Deacs!

You do know that Ricky Williams "retired" from the NFL because he said he'd rather smoke pot, don't you?

You should get your kid into a Rugby team. I just moved to Australia and have come to really like rugby. It is a much faster game the football. They dont stop play when someone gets hurt. very cool

Noone is scared of Ol' Roy and the Baby Blue Evil Empire. I still remember the 3OT game in Chapel Hole this year, Roy's first ACC loss, at the hands of the Deacons this year.



As for football, Carowhina might actually have a decent football team if they got rid of John (Grimace) Bunting.





Q: How do they separate the men from the boys at Carolina?

A: With a crowbar

Ohhhh MY, I see you silly Deacs need an asswhuppin', which ain't far off. Hey, I survived that 3 OT game off the big screen, and if I were you I'd be discussing the PAST as well, since the future don't look too bright.



It's been a while since Tim Duncan, you know . . .

We didn't lose any seniors from last year, Chris Paul might just be the best player in the country this year, but we have nothing to look forward to?









Be afraid, be very afraid!

Yeah, I'm trembling, just like Tar Heels always do when it comes to the hardwood.



You and my sister's husband can pray, beg, plead, and delude yourselves into thinking that your bunch of Deacons are going to stand tall come regular basketball season. Who's holding the money????



Bank, Realistically Optimistic Tar Heel . . . .

I was hooked on Buddy Ryan's Eagles.



After that era no team was really entertaining, they were all sub par clones of a conservative offense and defense. bleh.

Panthers are 2-0 in the preseason and look like they're going to be even better this year than they were last year.



Unfortunately, their first few games are a murderer's row:

Home vs Green Bay

Away vs Kansas City

Home vs The Messiah er....Michael Vick and the Falcons

Away vs Denver

Away vs Philadelphia
