A quick note of possible importance for next year's college basketball season.
One of our operatives was in Chapel Hill this past evening.
Enjoying the majesty of Franklin Street at the legendary Player's Dance Club (the PDC, Players...etc...whatever you choose to call it).
North Carolina basketball great Tyler Hansbrough was present.
i. The TV adds a solid 20 pounds to him. Hansbrough is tall and thin (despite his muscular and mature appearance on TV) and in person, in street clothes, is nowhere near ready to play in the NBA.
ii. Hansbrough was drinking the Players' signature drink, 'Holy Grail'. A feminine concoction of small amounts of alcohol, beer and fruit juices. A staple of the PDC, and a favorite of management. Employees laugh at those that fall into the trap of thinking it is a high alcohol content drink. Why is this important? Because any budding NBA star who drinks two and ends up dancing, doing the white man overbite, is light years from being NBA ready.
iii. Hansbrough's female companion was not even 'desperate' NBA groupie caliber. Enough said.
iv. A well lubricated Hansbrough stated he would be back in Carolina Blue next year.
You don't have to believe us.
It doesn't matter.
We are just relaying (not reporting) what our operative heard and saw.
