I hate that effing song!
The University of North Carolina Is On To Something...
After giving their coach, a huge (but, apparently, not huge enough) raise, the University of North Carolina football team made it to a bowl (The Something or Another Car Care Bowl), and nearly won the game. Against the West Virginia University Mountaineers. (Of course, the saddest part, aside from the next part of this post, is that this was, essentially, a home game for the Heels. And, they blew it.)
And, you know what it means when the Mountaineers win, sports fans?
They play, the John Denver standard, "Take Me Home (Country Roads)". Loudly.
And, as I have said about another song associated with a college, "I hate that fucking song."*
*For those in the know, that other song is the University of Tennessee's, "Rocky Top."
[Ed. Note: Last The Lifeguard checked, the Wake Forest Demon Deacons were the only North Carolina team to win their bowl game.]
