Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim, whom I’ve enjoyed watching choke deep into the NCAA tournament for many years in a row now, announced that it would make sense to move the ACC tournament to Madison Square Garden. Boeheim opined, “Where would you want to go to a tournament for five days? Let’s see. Greensboro or New York City?”
Ha ha! What a funny guy. Clearly Boeheim has never eaten at Stamey’s Barbecue right across the street from the Greensboro Coliseum or he wouldn’t be so quick to judge.
It’s the sheer un-Southerness of Boeheim that offends me. No sooner than he is invited into the hallowed halls of the ACC than he’s already being rude to his new benefactors. He’s the New Guy. He needs to sit in the back of the room and shut up. At least for the next six or seven years.
