I hope the Sexy Soul Oldies booth returns to Charlotte Bobcats Arena for the ACC basketball tournament. The music hits you when you walk around the corner and fills the concourse at the CIAA basketball tournament with old, slow R & B. If the ACC tries to substitute Sexy Beach Music Oldies, I’m calling a foul. In fact, I’m calling a technical.
Also like to see La’ Wan’s soul food return when Wake Forest and Virginia and the fellows come to the arena the week after next. The cuisine includes home fries with pepper and onions, fried chicken gizzards plate and smoked turkey leg.
The music and the food are two reasons to break away from basketball and walk around the arena. The fashion is a reason not to. No matter what you wear you won’t feel as good about your clothes as you did when you walked in.
I like the way I’m dressed – black shirt, silk maybe, blue jeans and some half boots marked down from $300 to $200 to $100.
Alas, it was evident midway through my first lap that I needed a fedora. I almost never wear a hat or even a cap but that will change. It will change because the only way I can justify walking with my black cane is if I’m wearing a black fedora. Next year. All I need is a cane and a fedora.
