A Message from Eddie

Vicki is still recovering from the effects of helping family and friends celebrate Carolina's historic defeat of Duke -- at Duke. She'll be back tomorrow, no doubt.


People are so silly -- a houseful of grown men (and women, who always have seemed to me to be the more sensible sex) screaming as men in baggy shorts bounce a ball and try to throw it through a hoop.

It only proves the infinite superiority of cats -- as if there'd ever been any question.

Uh oh, were spirits (not of the ghostly variety) involved with this celebration?

Martin said...

I hope you're keeping a journal, Eddie.

Merisi said...

You are one sensible cat, indeed! ;-)

Desiree said...

I love your observation on the superior species ;)

I learned quickly when moving to NC that Duke and Carolina have very, very strong rivalries. And I've found that the older the fan gets, their loyalty seems to grow stronger.

Jean Baardsen said...

Those shorts are pretty ridiculous. Eddie, I totally agree with your assessment of the situation.

Vicki Lane said...

They were indeed, Mrs. A -- but I was just too worn out by the time folks left to do the longer post I'd intended.

There were eight of us and five are Carolina graduates -- my husband is not, but has been a fan for the past fifty years. Me, I normally don't care but was swept up in the tide of rabid fandom.

The cat's out of the bag now!

Awfully clever for someone "too tired to do the longer post." Jim

Southwest Arkie said...

Oh no! Thanks for the update Eddie!

Bouncin Barb said...

Since I am not a Duke fan, I especially like this post!!! Love the pics.

Star said...

Cats are so photogenic, don't you think. Love the chair and the poster!

JudyB said...

I'm with Eddie. I love all sports except those involving balls or wheels or water.

We're Carolina grads in our house and my alter ego comes out at the Carolina/Duke games - no more the quiet, subdued introvert. All the yelling sends our sweet dog upstairs to hide. Revenge is sweet. I spent most of the morning reading and listening to every commentary I could find, basking in the reflected glory.

I aggree Eddie. Come live with me in my no-sport zone!!

Joan said...

You won't mind if I can't spell agree either will you Eddie!

Frances said...

I may live in New York, but have Virginia roots and lots of Carolina connections.

I completely understand what has happened.

Eddie, you will just have to wait this one out.

My husband went to UNC Chapel Hill for 8 years (undergrad and med school). He was totally devastated when the 'Heels blew the big lead in the last UNC/Dook game. Last night's game meant bringing out the really good single malt Scotch. I must admit that I was a little sorry to see the entire Plumlee family on the verge of tears.

I got a note from a friend today telling me that the politically correct term for us mountain folk is now APPALACHIAN AMERICAN.

Vicki Lane said...

A good bit of single malt was consumed here (not by me) and after the game the guys removed to the porch to smoke not one but two each cigars. And my husband spent a bit of time this morning in that post game gloatng...

Victoria said...

Ah Eddie, you are are as wise as you are handsome.

(Congratulations, Carolina, way to go!)

Brenda said...

Being a transplant, and having no personal connections with either team, I'm the one in the group that pipes up and says "Huh? Is there a game today?" People always look at me like I've just landed here from the moon.

Kath said...

Always a treat to have Eddie's wisdom.
