Cedar's FoLo on the Duke - UNC game:
I talked with a couple of Observer guys in the know and sad but true, Charlotte didn't have one "journalist" in Chapel Hill Wednesday night. In fact while the sports page was dramatic...
the lead story on the sports page "Duke Controls Destiny" is by some guy from Raleigh named Luke "DeCock" from the News and Observer.
In fairness to the Observer, Scott Fowler is on the Sports page as well, but he is covering "Table Tennis". Seriously?Table Tennis? Ping Pong?
So here's my standing invitation to Scott Fowler and Tom Sorenson, a couple of great sports writers: Next time guys I'll drive, I won't even hit you up for gas money. Need tickets? No problem I'll cover that as well.
Sometimes us guys just have to pull together.
Cedar Bonus: Nice short on Rivers, from again the News and Observer is here.
Need more proof that the Charlotte Observer and Raleigh News and Observer are morphing into one statewide newspaper? Check out "Observations From Above The Rim" a collaborative effort by both Charlotte and Raleigh sports writers.
