Call Them The Seattle Diamond Heels

The Seattle Mariners are set to promote another former Tar Heel to the big leagues. Third baseman Kyle Seager is being promoted after a short but extremely productive stint at AAA Tacoma.

Inside Carolina has a final journal entry from Kendall Marshall prior to the freshman point guard’s arrival on campus this weekend.

We have more insight into what drove France’s Zinedine Zidane to head butt Italy’s Marco Materazzi in the chest drawing a red card during the World (Non)Cup Final Sunday in Germany.

Things I Was Thinking About While Waiting for the Hurricanes to Score a Goal…

Which they did and tied the game with three minutes to go in the third period before losing in overtime 2-1 on a power play goal by Buffalo. Now I have enjoyed watching the Hurricanes play but I still think hockey is more chaos and freaky ricochets of the puck. The most impressive part of [...]
