Whereas, let's take a swipe at Duke

In case you missed it in the N.C. Senate, UNC fan Tony Rand, the majority leader from Cumberland County, got in a few digs at Duke in his resolution April 28 praising the Tar Heels’ national championship in basketball.

Buried among the “whereas” this and “whereas” that was this line:

“Whereas, the 89-72 Carolina win over Michigan State was a convincing and thorough victory but one that left intact Duke's record for the worst loss in Final Four history.…”

And then there was this one:

“Whereas, the senior players named above were undefeated in all away games played within a 12 mile radius of Chapel Hill…”

By the way, Rand’s son, Ripley Rand, once published a book for his own son titled, “I want to go to UNC.”

    Why would someone who lives in SC comment about a story regarding a NC Senator? Tony is pompous, but he gets the job done, trust me.

    Nice to know our tax dollars are being put to good use. If they're not spending time voting to give themselves a raise, they're getting out of speeding tickets. For once, i just wish our politicians would earn their keep.

    People from the state of North Carolina don't use the word putz.

    Honestly, I laughed. It is no worse than the digs we give each other on the smack talk forums here. All in good fun. If Duke wins a national title again, then a pro-Duke legislator can do the same thing.

    We already knew that Rand is a putz because of his politics. This simply provides further evidence that he is wholly a putz.

    Nice dig, Tony. Fraternity brother of my dad's, slightly pompous, but nice dig...(cough).
