In a developing news story, the Carolina Panthers are still not moving to Los Angeles.When I think of Maryland, I think of Lefty and Gary Williams, Dixon and Blake, Albert King and Len Bias and Buck Williams. In other words, I think of the Terps when they were interesting. Been awhile. All time favorite Maryland moment was in Chapel Hill when Lefty, the legendary basketball coach, had just lost a last-second game to North Carolina. A few of us were waiting outside the locker room. Lefty looked at the Maryland mascot and said, "Get that damn turtle outta here."
Anybody who thinks the Terps were greedy to move to the Big Ten doesn't keep up with the ACC.
I don't plan to check email or get on Twitter Thursday. But I wonder if on Thanksgiving people still send angry email and Tweets about the Panthers. Or does anger take a day off?
Looking forward to the Bobcats tonight. Ought to be a festive crowd at Time Warner Cable Arena.
I don't know how many Turkey Trots races have been held near Southpark, but I've missed only one since its inception in the 1980s. Great event; lets you eat without guilt the rest of the day. And even mean people, most of them, anyway, are in a good mood on Thanksgiving morning. I was out of town when I missed my only race two years ago. But I'm going to skip it this year even though I'll be in Charlotte. Running no longer has allure. I've bet I've run 200 races. Don't know if I'll ever run another. I salute those of you who run. I'd come out and cheer you, but if I'm that close to the festivities, I'll want to run.
Whatever you do Thanksgiving, enjoy it.
