I always knew former Tar Heel Rashad McCants had decent range, but this — well, this is something…

Rashad McCants as the bisexual leader of a shoplifting ring

Perhaps this role isn't such a departure for McCants...

After five NBA seasons in which he averaged 10 points, 2 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game, it now appears former UNC star — and integral part of the Heels’ 2004/2005 NCAA Championship team — Rashad McCants may be returning to “prison.” Only on the big (and/or small to medium-sized) screen this time.

Yes, according to the Big Lead, McCants is hoping his professional acting career plays out a bit better than his basketball — by playing the “bi-sexual leader of a shoplifting ring” in an upcoming series entitled The Booster Club.

Now, how in the hell The Big Lead figured that out from the above trailer, I’m not sure. I’ve watched it three times now and still haven’t deciphered the slightest semblance of plot, but I guess I’ll just take their word for it.

Real mutha f@ck*n mythological, indeed, Rashad. Break a leg…

UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp Does Jonhnny B. Goode?

January 18, 2011

UNC Chancellor Holden ThorpSure, in terms of stage presence, he may offer all the emotion, theatrics and general appeal of a Tar Heel tailgate — but at least he’s putting himself out there. Right?

And yeah, he might have been slightly out of key for a few bars there, but that’s par for the course around Chapel Hill these days, isn’t it? All kidding aside, though, it’s clear the man’s a music lover, and no one could fault him for that.

Seriously, just when we thought Holden’s Pit performance of Thriller would stand — ironically — as the single piece of evidence demonstrating that life indeed exists in the Chancellor’s body, he pops up shredding to this Chuck Berry classic. Bravo!

The Gingerhead Man was not impressed…

Cameron Crazies’ “Minnesota” chant was only the beginning of very bad weekend for UNC athletics

November 21, 2010

Ahhh. It seems like only yesterday that Frumpzilla was busy writing its first ever UNC-Duke themed post. 2 1/2 years (and several unplanned, unannounced sabbaticals) later, do you think those Blue Devils over in Durham would pass up an opportunity to stick it to their powder blue nemeses? Of course not!

I’d heard about the Dukies starting the above chant during their win over Colgate, but — thanks to Fromthebarn.org — the above clip is the first chance I’ve had to actually see it. If only Friday’s loss to Minnesota had ended the Heels’ weekend woes.

Saturday saw things go from bad to worse in Chapel Hill as Carolina dropped a heartbreaker to bitter rival N.C. State. Fortunately, this particular game was played with that pesky oblong ball so many UNC faithful seem to find passion for at only the most opportune times. No big deal. After all, at least the 8th ranked basketball team was there to redeem an otherwise pitiful 72-hour stretch by beating Vanderbilt on Sunday, right?

Wrong. On the heels of all-world Freshman Harrison Barnes now going 4 of 24 from the floor in his last two games, the Commodores topped Carolina 72-65 Sunday night in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. The trip home from San Juan will surely be a long one for Roy’s boys, but hosting UNC-Asheville on Tuesday should help restore some semblance of hope on the Hill prior to the Heels’ next encounter with that oblong ball — Duke, in Durham, on Saturday.

Ironically, something tells me there won’t be much — if any — video evidence of a classic fan rivalry sourced from that encounter.

UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp Attempts to Exorcise the Demons

November 2, 2010

It’s been a scary year for North Carolina’s football program, but I’m sure the ghouls and ghosts bedeviling Franklin Street this past weekend offered a welcome recess from the NCAA investigators that have been haunting Chapel Hill for months.

Now, I’m by no means certain, but I highly doubt UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp would have been caught dead amongst that aforementioned crowd of 35,000 specters (just a hunch). However, as you’ll see below, that didn’t stop Thorp from participating in the general spirit of the festivities.

Caught on tape by the N&O, here’s Holden taking part in what appears to be some sort of ceremonial dance; perhaps a cleansing ritual to lift the Heels out of their current pit of despair…

Glory Holes Rampant on LSU’s Campus

September 2, 2010

As if LSU officials,Glory Holes Rampant on LSU's campus staff, and faithful didn’t have enough on their hands with preparing for this weekend’s college football opener against UNC, it now appears that combating the blight of “Glory Holes” has been added to the University’s agenda.

Glory Holes — as defined in an article in LSU’s Daily Reveille — are holes “carved in the partitions of bathroom stalls, [and] are typically used for anonymous oral sex between men who insert their genitals into the hole.”

LSU custodial engineers have apparently battled this “recurring problem” by placing steel plates over the holes. Nevertheless, some students keep plugging away, going as far as alerting certain internet based communities — such as “CrusingForSex.com” — when counter efforts have led to a hole becoming “active” again.

Now, while it may not be particularly surprising a problem like this exists in a town that literally translates as “Red Stick,” one has to think this serves as quite a distraction. Hard to imagine what it must be like to grace the community throne in one’s dormitory, only to be greeted by one or more, 2 to 3 inch holes staring back at you on either side of the stall.

Having to wonder what ominous presence may be lurking on the other side only exacerbates things, of course. Frightful, to say the least.

LSU fans smell like corndogsOf course, given LSU’s affinity for corn dogs, perhaps these glory holes are simply some ritualistic vehicle for transfer –  a means for like-minded fans to share a common interest and passion during one of life’s more intimate, albeit  routine, moments.

Either way, as the Tigers prepare for an entirely different type of problem “Hole” in Atlanta on Saturday, I suppose we can only hope that this Glory Hole issue doesn’t raise its ugly head in any of the Georgia Dome’s stalls.

Hitler is told about the UNC investigation…

September 2, 2010

The NCAA’s investigation of alleged improprieties within North Carolina’s football program is a hot topic as of late. Depending on the source, the extent of the violations could result in anywhere between 3 to 16 players being suspended indefinitely, many important starters included.

Now, while many UNC fans may flippantly dismiss the gravity of all this — who cares about football in Chapel Hill anyway, right? — it’s important to remember that there are still some true blue, through and through, Heels out there that are really taking this to heart, and, for them, their Carolina Blue sky really is falling…

5 bizarre Facebook groups you, as a fan of trivial NBA history, should join just for the hell of it…

NBA LogoThe NBA Playoffs are finally upon us, and the glory that so many of today’s stars lust after so earnestly is only a few weeks away. But what about the stars, however dim, of yesterday?

Being that fame, glory, even remote notoriety, is all too often fleeting, is it not prudent and wise, if for nothing more than nostalgia’s sake, to occasionally embrace what can now be characterized as trivial? Having come across what follows, I have to think at least a handful of people agree with such sentiment…

Did Roy Williams just compare UNC losing 6 of 7 to Haiti?

February 10, 2010

10 Comments

Though I’ve yet to be convinced that paying someone for such services is warranted, losing 6 of 7 may very well be worth a trip to the massage therapist. I’ll take Williams’ word for it.

However, comparing the Tar Heels’ recent run of form to the disaster down in Haiti, even anecdotally, makes me think Roy should probably hire that masseuse to do more than just rub him down.

You know, maybe, like, script his press conferences; a little PR work on the side, or something (perverts).

(The video takes a few seconds to load)

UPDATE: With the Heels losing, at home, to Duke last night, we’re now giving 3:1 odds that Roy will be Pat Robertson’s next guest on the 700 club.
