North Carolina Tar Heels Losing Out On Blue Chip Recruits Give This Year’s Squad a Scrappy Feel
Think my favorite scene from “The Royal Tenenbaums” is when Gene Hackman and Angelica Huston are walking along a river bank, and she asks him how he doing because she believes he has cancer.
“I’m having a ball, scrapping and yelling,” Royal (played by Hackman) says. “Loving every minute with this dam* crew.”
Okay, I know that was a long tangent, but stick with me.
Bring up that scene for two reasons. First and most importantly is because it reminds me of the North Carolina Tar Heels season thus far. Against a now crowded ACC the Heels have been doing more with less and the play of point guard Marcus Paige has been nothing short of a revelation.
Secondly, bring up a Wes Anderson movie, because all of his films are being screened at the Music Box this week. If you are in Chicago do not miss this opportunity, because it is rare that his films get re-screened.
Know that the second reason has little to do with sports, but a little film appreciation never hurt anybody right?
Also, wanted to admit my guilt recently for writing a slideshow about how the Heels would not make the tournament. Ever since I wrote that though, they have not stopped losing so maybe need to give myself a little credit for providing motivation. Thanks for reading, and here is some fortune cookie wisdom just like old times.
