NC State has to play Clemson this Saturday, so this will easily be the longest week of the college football season for me.
I like to think of myself as a “Justin Timberlake Wolfpack” fan.
Every time State faces a formidable opponent, people will ask me if I think the Wolfpack will prevail. My response:
“Don’t wanna think about it. Don’t wanna talk about it. I’m just so sick about it.”
Now, every time State BEATS a formidable opponent, I can’t help but bust out the cocky Timberlake in response to fans of the opposing team:
“Cry me a riveeeeeer! Cry me a rivEEEEEER!”
Finally, every time State Beats UNC, I go full Timberlake:
“I’m bringin’ sexy baaaack! Them Tar Heel boys don’t know how to aaaaact!”
When I got to the office this morning, I ran into our company’s DHF (Designated Heels Fan), who charged right out of the gate with this gem:
“Man, you know State’s gonna get killed this weekend, right?”
That’s right, this question fumbled from a TAR HEELS fan’s lips.
Here’s a list of things ain’t nobody got time for:
When UNC’s players aren’t getting busted for selling their shoes, they’re having a hard enough time playing such powerhouse teams as East Carolina.
So all you Tar Heels fans need to save that talk for basketball season.
In the meantime, “cry me a riveeeeeer!”
