I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

Carolina Blues

I went to Roanoke Bible College, a very small school in North Carolina. As a Virginian and loyal Cavaliers fan, I was completely unprepared for the overt loyalty to UNC that was so prevalent. I grew sick of "Carolina Blue" and hearing how it was alledgedly God's favorite color because he painted the sky that way. Every pick-up game had several "wannabes" sporting their UNC #23/Jordan jerseys. My anti-UNC bias was cemented. Nowadays UVa is down, but it is nice to know Duke is still around to pummel the "heels." I wish J.J. Redick would have stayed home in Virginia since he is from Roanoke, Va. but I am especially glad he didn't go to UNC.
