What day is it?????!
Reminds me of the year you posted the article of Jordan becoming new Carolina coach, and my dumb-a-s-s believed it for a half second.

I've forwarded the link to several UNC acquaintances (not sure friend is the right word).
posted/linked on f/b. see if i can reel in a few
Got me! I was wondering yesterday what today's article would be, but even so, I swallowed this one hook, line and sinker. I guess I really do just want to believe the best of people, even ol' Roy. My second thought, though, was that it was all a big recruiting ploy to increase his chances with Rivers.
In any case, nice! I haven't done more than chuckle at one of these stories in quite a few years, but this one did it.
Funny. Although I was hoping for something relating to unc, Butler and the 1924 national championship (such as each school will relinquish claim to it if the other wins its resepctive tournament).

I read it on my commute this morning, and admit that I didn't even suspect it was a joke. I was actually impressed with Ol' Roy for a minute. I should have been a little suspicious and topeka'd the story. Live and learn I guess.
I believed every word of it. Now I am disillusioned.
You could tell it was fake because Roy didn't speak of himself in the third person. If y'all can change that, you may catch some West Coasters as they roll into the office.
EDIT to add: Great job on the article, though -- very funny!
I believed every word of it. I am a moron.
Kudos to DBR-- way better than the usual April 1 fare you see around the internets.

Considering Roy charges charities for his picture, I was skeptical...
I bought it 100%. Didn't figure it out until I started topeka'ing around for a link to the interview, so that I could send it to my UNC friends and say, "Wow, what a classy move by Roy." When I couldn't find a link, I started getting suspicious....
Great job, DBR! And too bad it's not true, because UNC's general funds could definitely use the money.
Before I realized the post was a joke, I felt bad for disliking Roy as much as I do. Now I can hate him freely again.
What's truly unbelievable is what a maroon Roy actually is.

The best part would be if the article was picked up and people actually put pressure on Roy to do this.
