Without consulting me the ACC scheduled a Carolina men's basketball game versus Wake Forest University on the same evening as The Golden Globe Awards.
Clearly, I had a dilemma on my hands.
Thankfully, we have a DVR (the generic version of Tivo) so I knew I'd be able to tape the GG whilst watching the Carolina game. It really couldn't be the other way around. I am no fairweather fan. I am a devoted alumnus and a proud Tarheel.
But I wish I could convey to you the full scope of the sacrifice I made tonight. You see, I love award shows. With all my heart. I may have mentioned this a time or two before. And I really enjoy watching them live so that I feel like I'm there experiencing it along with all the celebs.
I know. I need a real life.
But I also love my Tarheels, my boys in blue, Roy's boys. This wasn't just another game, this was an ACC game. My boys needed me there in spirit to cheer them on and yell at the officials. So, I sucked it up and rallied the pop culture lovin' part of my heart by telling it that at least now, I'd be able to fast forward through the commercials and rewind any particularly noteworthy moments.
Y'all, it wasn't worth it.
I'm not sure what's going on with Tyler and the rest of the Carolina crew but it was AWFUL. The Wake Forest crowd showed up in full force with a record breaking crowd at The Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum and they did their job and they did it well. We are now 0-2 in the ACC and that fact makes me positively nauseous. I really can't even talk about it any more...
But I have now watched the GG in their entirety. I have a lot of thoughts on the fashion, the winners, the speeches, etc. I'll have all that for you sometime tomorrow. Stay tuned...
