Fun video seems to be en vogue right now. This video from Friday related to the UNC scandal remains a MUST SEE for anyone who hasn’t. That thing was pure gold and I was surprised to speak to some friends at the game this weekend who had not seen it yet.
Then, later on Friday, this thread was opened on our Message Forums and has gotten a lot of attention in the interim, so we decided to bring it to the front of the blog.
While introducing Andrew Young, John Edward’s former assistant, Shep said:
… Andrew Young, joining us from Raleigh, in the heart of Wolfpack Nation.
Mr. Young retorted:
Thank you Shep, it’s, it’s Tarheel Country, by the way
To which Shep quickly responded:
Uhh… actually, actually, to be quite frank, Raleigh is Wolfpack Nation, Go Wolfpack. Uh, No, No love here for the light blue
As tjfoose shared:
For those may not know who Shepard Smith is, he’s one of Fox News’ straight news anchors.
He leans left, is a proud alum of Ole Miss (to which he regular refers). He was a supporter of Admiral Ackbar becoming the new Ole Miss mascot, and on his show, expressed his disappointment when Ackbar did not make the finalist cut. As you can probably infer, he’s a big college sports fan.
Nice to know some out there in the national non-sports media understand the difference between the Wolfpack and the Smurfs.
