This guy wants to replace IU with Duke on their schedule.
Actually he lists a bunch of possible replacements, but of course we have to top the list. My favorite line is
I get to make fun of them for still sulking over that shot, and I get to make fun of bad grammar. It's a win-win sentence!And the Laettner game in 1992 still sticks in our crawls.
"That young man has an extra step on his ladder the rest of us just don't have."
Anybody got an opinion (idea) as to which food truck Q in the Triangle is worthy of my $6 - 10?
Wife and I are headed to Morehead City from Richmond for the Memorial Day holiday. Travelling I95-Rt 264-I795-Rt 70. Any recommendations on BBQ places along the way? Also any recommendations on Morehead City or Atlantic Beach would be appreciated?
Not leaving until the game is over.
FYI...be very careful of your speed coming into MHC. They have just dropped the speed limit from 45 to 35 on a large stretch of Arendell st, and the cops have been having a blast with it. Mostly, they've been issuing just warnings, but I bet their attitude will change for the tourists.
One other suggestion...Moore's in New Bern. Like Wilbur's, this is real deal wood smoked 'cue. You should see their lumber pile out back. They also hold a Guinees world record for something, largest sandwich I think. Beyond that, to find the best bbq around you'll just have to swing by my house. I'll be firing up something this weekend.
Not to change the subject too much here, but I just got back from a few days in Austin visiting a friend. I made it to Rudy's once and all the way out in the middle of nowhere to Salt Lick. I got brisket at both places and also tried some jalapeno sausage and pork ribs.
For the record, I'm a NC kid and love the eastern style stuff. But eating brisket in Hill Country of Texas is every bit as much fun as running down some of these notorious pig places in NC. Different flavors and beef heavy, but Texas is great, and along with NC they might just be the two poles of the barbecue world.
There's a catering company operating out of Clemmons, NC, that does amazing slow cooked pork Carolina style barbecue. They also sell a couple barbecue sauces and a hot sauce online (I've tried and enjoy the hot sauce and Carolina Blend). Anyway, would definitely recommend trying them out.
(ignore the ridiculous use of the z's)
Brian Zoubek on what was going through his mind walking to the free throw line with 3.6 seconds remaining in the 2010 National Championship game and Duke up by 1: "Fifty percent [of me is] thinking, This is what I've been dreaming of doing my entire life. Fifty percent I'm crapping my pants."
Thanks for the BBQ recommendations. Wilbers in Goldsboro looks about the right time for a lunch stop. McCalls on the way home. Thanks for the speed warning CBB. Also sent you a pm.
