My Cup Runneth Over With “FACTS”… & THAT’s A FACT!

A Really Great Guy… Charlie Adams

Before I start shoveling the usual incredible foolishness at you… another Really Good Guy has left “us” for a better place.

Charlie Adams… longtime Executive Director of The North Carolina High School Athletics Association passed away last night (Saturday). I’m blessed to know more than my share of mighty fine men. Charlie Adams is in that Top Tier.

A Cary native and local sports legend in the 50s… Charlie’s only flaw was a ten-year addiction to this website.

Our loss is Heaven’s Gain… My Friend Charlie Adams.

No Herbie No…

Last week after Oklahoma defeated Ohio State, some 5-Star 18 y/o semi-literate recruit (with a goofy brussels sprout haircut) tweeted that Urban Meyer should replace the Sr QB with some freshman pal of his.

GameDay’s Kirk “Herbie” Herbstreit (former tOSU QB) decided to challenge the Brussel-sprout headed nitwit on Twitter. Bad move Herbie. … LINK

A 48 y/o “rich white man” (aren’t we all) going after a semi-literate AfAm vegetable head on Twitter has very bad “optics”. Board monkeys, afraid Herbie would ruin tOSU’s chances to sign “vegetable-head”, slammed “Herbie”.

Of course Herbie was right to admonish the punk but… “Being right” has nothing to do with a social media slugfest.

State’s 4 NFL QBs… An NFL / ACC / NCAA Record?

What do Rivers, Wilson, Glennon, Brissette all have in common? All four started at QB in the NFL this weekend… All played for the Home Team in Carter-Finley… None won even an ACC Division Championship.

What was their combined record as starters versus “a certain local hated rival”?. I have no idea.. I suspect it’s more Ws than Ls.

Cheapshot aside… I bet that is a NFL/ACC/NCAA RECORD – Four Alums on One Sunday. Add Gabriel and Kramer and it’s certainly a braggable achievement. But be careful… UNCCHers will throw some UNC/NBA trivia back at you.

JemeleLaPalooza Enters 2nd Week…

JemeleLaPalooza is leaking over into a 2nd Week. That will elevate Jemele above Kathy Griffin, “The Russians R Coming”, Comey, P*ssy Hats, Sessions The Grand Dragon, “STILLETOS !!!”blah, blah, blah = a.k.a “This Week’s WE GOT TRUMP NOW BY GOLLY.

24 consecutive “WE GOT HIM NOWs” have all fizzled like wet bottle rockets but it ain’t like “those people” (?) have anything else to do… really!

Many… a buncha… a lot of you have asked me off-line how to reply to the Trump-haters favorite mantra “It’s A Fact: Trump’s a white supremacist”.

He’s not of course, but don’t waste time going there… just rear back and say “It’s A Fact: Obama’s a race-baitin’ Muslim”.

Their beady eyes immediately get really googly… battery acid spews outta their noses… and they start whirling like little dervishes with acute St Vitas’ Dance.   I had one actually shape-shift into a rabid pit bull and start eating its own feces.

The first time you witness it, it’s a bit unnerving. Then it becomes a real hoot to watch. Try it at work or wherever you encounter “them”.

Just a Reminder:

My Facts and Your Facts and Their Facts Ain’t All Facts.. THAT’S A FACT!

The Faithful Few at ECU, Duke, Mizzou

I’m not saying the ECU “faithful” ain’t too faithful any more, but when VaTech passed 50 on Saturday, even “Ficklen” left. It was just “Dowdy Stadium” for the final 15 minutes. OUCH!

If ECU played Duke these days, the total attendance might be even less than the number of employees left at The N&O. THAT “crowd” fits in one mini-van. OUCH!  Mizzou Football

My other alma mater – MIZZOU – may be even worse. Purdue walloped them at Mizzou… before less than 30,000 in a 70,000-seat SEC stadium. What few MU fans that care anymore are demanding they FIRE THE COACH. I suggested they go on a fake hunger strike. Those seem to work there. OUCH!

Gene Chizik Did NOT Say What?

Former UNCCH Defensive Messiah Gene Chizak is now an analyst on SEC Network. Saturday he did NOT say a put-down about the Tennessee coach after he (Butch Jones) was Hail Maryed by Florida. What Chizil “NEVER SAID” blew up Twitter. Don’t even try to figure that out…. LINK

That is an appropriate snapshot of America September 2017.

ESPN hiring Hillary… “Calling Nurse Ratchett”

Best “I Wish I’d Said That”… ESPN is considering hiring Hillary Clinton to explain why they are losing millions of viewers faster than Marie Osmond lost weight on NutriSystem. …

HillyBeast’s “book tour” Campaigning For Dummies: Umpteen Reasons I Got Beat Last November has reached the level of so pathetic even Chelsea can’t keep a straight face.

Yours truly was a Twitter Star for 15 minutes with: “Calling Nurse Ratchett: Mrs Clinton would like her Jell-O now”.

I will never encourage anyone to start following Twitter. I sorta have to because…. but you don’t. I AM becoming a bit of a Twitter Legend. Creating “a suitcase nuke” out of 140 characters is truly an art.

Did they spell my name correctly?

I haven’t read The N&O in a dozen years, but I am told one of their not-fired-yet junior journalists mentioned me disparagingly in a recent article. One of AgentPierce’s columns from several years ago apparently “stuck in the N&O’s craw”. I suspect many more than that one is stuck there.

Pierce is pissed that the little nabob credited me rather than him.. Me, I just hope they spelled my name right…. BobLee … one word with a capital “L” in the middle.

Clay Travis / CNN / Brooksie / Wolffie

A guy named Clay Travis is becoming “renown” as the anti-Jemele. Travis is a Nashville-based sports-radio guy who does NOT “lean Left” and really despises all things ESPN.   All the 100s of little Trump-hating millennials on sports radio really really despise him because… DUH! Why do you think?

So Travis goes on CNN to debate some AfAm Trump-hating whozit about JemeleLaPalooza. The CNN info-babe is Brooke Baldwin (UNC’01). Yep, “Brookey” and “Skippy”(UNC’75) are both TruBlues.

Brooke Baldwin, Clay Travis on CNN (screen grab) CR: CNN

Two minutes into the show Travis says something to the effect “I believe in The First Amendment… and boobs”. KABOOM… Brookey does a double-tale as she covered her cleavage,  looks AGAST and zaps Travis off-the-air.

CNN, which gave the “Pussy-Hat” goons 24/7 coverage, and where ANY/ALL obscenities about Trump or “people like me and many of you” is encouraged, feigned outrage at Travis’ word choice. . I would not have said what Travis said; but, like so many these days, he never asked my opinion.

I don’t watch CNN, but when I saw the video… my first thought when I heard “boob” is “Why is Travis talking about Wolf Blitzer?”

If there is any “boob” on TV News who has a lifetime fear of Jr High PE it is that twerp Wolf Blitzer. I hear he still insists on getting dressed in a toilet stall.

Could this coming week possibly be as Fun-Filled as last week? It just might be.

By Wednesday…possibly earlier.  Boy… Oh Boy…Do we have a SUR-PRISE for you.

Toodle-loo for now…

Are you a First-timer? Here are 2,000 more BobLeeSays.  Have at’em…

Charlie Adams was indeed a great man. My father was a manager for coach Adams when he coached at Cary and a part of the group of Adams Hoopsters that meets every year. He was a great coach and leader of many young men. I can remember him coming out and watching me play football as I came up through high school in the mid 90’s. He loved and supported his past players and extended families like they were part of his own.

So you’re saying the travelling Duke faithful won’t fill up the sunny side of Kenan this weekend? We may be painfully close to witnessing the turnstile attendance being the same as, or smaller, than a Duke/UNC game in February. If a 20 minute drive, beautiful fall NC weather, and “plenty of good seats still available” doesn’t get more than a dozen into the aluminum, the marketing folks better Dig Deep for something better.

This maybe “Wuffie Fake News”, but the Stub Hub (verified) prices for the Battle of the Blues was running around $20 LAST weekend. Ain’t technology great when you can laugh at the plight of a rival whilst gazing over the vast array of cars and trucks (every color of RED that you would want to see) in the CF parking lots and outlying area for “FURMAN”. There were also numerous CL ads for $10 OBO in some pretty poshy sections of Kenan. Gate will be reported at near capacity…..Rev BB’s and Jimmy G’s Logistic and Crowd estimating gurus have already… Read more »

Duke having a hard time just getting the student body to get out of bed Saturday by noon to attend football games and so many game options on TV and various mobile devices I agree 20-25,000 is pretty good for my Blue Devils…..UNC-CH has been about 20,000 under capacity so far. So might be they both think they belong in the Ivy League….was it not Dick Crum that said UNC-CH “wants to be Harvard Monday-Friday and Oklahoma on Saturday” and IIRC this was before they fired him!!! ECU and NCSU have great tailgating which is 1/3 tradition, 1/3 school spirit… Read more »

“Even Ficklin left”, a full quart in a half pint jar of a comment, if I ever heard one.

But wait! There’s MORE!

Mentioning Hillary alongside a “suitcase nuke” reminded me of the infamous “Snuke” episode of South Park. I giggled. I snickered. SunDrop was nearly nasally ejected.

Why can’t Duke draw larger crowds? Is there an obvious answer?

All the columns are still interesting to read as well as the responses but seem to be more a sports/political stew.
Two FACTS:
1. The UNC-CH mess known as TGU is a fact whether we know the ultimate outcome or not.
2. The Trump Presidential personality as the Republican TGU is also a fact whether we know the ultimate outcome or not.
(Even stronger than Factoids ????)

On ECU. Fact.”Our football team was not meeting competitive expectations” Jeff Compher, Dec 4, 2015. Fact. “in my opinion – the trajectory of the program was not going in the right direction.” Jeff Compher . My fact. The team lacks talent to compete with the level of competition it is playing both in and out of conference. Many blame that on Ruffin alone but both the current and former coach share (I hate the term) blame. . Fact. “Winning conference championships. I think those are the things that I feel we’re striving to do as a program. Our football team… Read more »

Interesting potpourri of “facts and trivia” Rivers first game against UNC in 2000….so that was the FIRST game of the Fab Four. Brissette closed it out in 2015. Overall for the 2000 – 2015 series….9 X 16 or 56% 2000 – 2016 10 X 17 or 59% . The Fab Four won 8 Games & played in 11. 8 X 11 or 73%. So, the Fab Four were, statistically, almost 25% “More Likely to WIN”. The infamous. McClendon knee (@ Kenan) in 2004 is NOT in the Fab Four’s years…..and it should be “astericked”….but it is still a L. .… Read more »

I like the fact that AP is channeling “Blondie” or has given over his word processor to her. I can’t wait for future installments. . As for the alphabet channels, they could be eliminated due to paucity of income if people would drop cable services and start streaming all content. Cable companies collect a fee for every channel and pass it back to the alphabet networks. If those fees were not available to them, they would go broke. . I just installed an outdoor Yagi antenna to pick up local stations and get everything else by streaming DTVNow for $10/month.… Read more »
