It's never lonely at photographer's shooting location number 44. There are always people around me who have big ideas. One thing I miss about watching games on TV is not being able to hear the play-by-play and color commentary from CBS/ESPN/FSN/Raycom. But today, I got the best of both worlds.
Directly behind photographer's shooting location 44 is a row of floor seats. What I have learned this season is that there are always different people sitting in these seats. Today, I found out that they belong to Wachovia. Funny considering the bank is now Wells Fargo.
The chachbag sitting behind me in the Wachovia seats had substantial of play-by-play and color analysis for everyone within a 4-5 seat radius of him. He tried to go say hello to members of the Tar Heel Sports Network just before tip off and was redirected by the usher. His flash camera was also a serious point of concern for the Smith Center staff. He could not seem to turn off the flash and was scolded harshly by the usher, known as "the trunchable."
His knowledge of the Tar Heels was so deep that he even made a joke for everyone to hear about how there are three Tylers on the team this year.
Really? I only count two. I guess Tyler Lawson is our point guard now. I wish I had gotten this guy's name. He was the top story.
