The weekly in-depth look at the best (worst?) moments in ACC schadenfreude.

First, it should come as no surprise that the Shake it Off video filmed by the NC State Football team last week absolutely obliterated the competition last week, easily capturing 50% of all of the tallied votes. That was one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen, and I'm sure it'll enter next year's #goacc Tournament as a very high seed. Second, we've got some tremendous entries this week, one even featuring yours truly! Oddly enough, it also features Jim Ross, who's back this week to provide his legendary commentary. With that being said, let's get down to the vote. Which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. The New York Yankees are holding "ACC Day!" (h/t @joeovies).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">ACC DAY! <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Joe Ovies (@joeovies) <a href="">June 11, 2015</a></blockquote>

Listen, if Wool E. Bull dressed up like Jon Snow on Game of Thrones Night at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, does this mean Joe Girardi would dress up like John Swofford? How would one dress up as John Swofford, I wonder.

2. Kyrie Irving has the logo from "Friends" tattooed on his arm because.......wut? (h/t @sundownmotel).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Kyrie Irving has a &#39;Friends&#39; tattoo. Like from the show &#39;Friends&#39; (via JackPMoore) <a href=""></a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Bill Hanstock (@sundownmotel) <a href="">June 11, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

This is really odd, considering Kyrie was two years old when Friends debuted on television in 1994. I guess he's watched a lot of Netflix and Hulu the last few years.

3. When did South Carolina join the ACC again? (h/t @colecubelic).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Changed my mind. South Carolina wins the SEC East. Can they reach week two undefeated? <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Cole Cubelic (@colecubelic) <a href="">June 10, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

Obviously someone goofed here and used UNC's football schedule, but I'm sure they'd like to have that schedule, including that opening "scrimmage" against themselves.

4. Jim Ross went on the David Glenn Show and said this disheartening statement (h/t @DavidGlennShow).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Ross says people who dub his voice over sports clips have &quot;too much time on their hands&quot;</p>&mdash; David Glenn Show (@DavidGlennShow) <a href="">June 11, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

.....I.....well.....uh......ouch. That hurts. He did go on to say though he found the dub overs flattering, so it's not a total loss! My work hasn't been all for naught! Here's the Soundcloud of the full interview below:

5. What in the damn hell is this, Atlanta Falcons?

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Coming soon to an <a href="">@nfl</a> field near you…&#10;&#10;<a href="">#RyannosaurusRex</a> <a href="">#JurassicWorld</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Atlanta Falcons (@AtlantaFalcons) <a href="">June 12, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

Good lord. There's so much happening here. Ryannosaurus Rex? No. Just no. Here's a better way to describe it:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">OMG RT <a href="">@masnRoch</a>: <a href="">@lindseyyok</a> Jurassic Pick</p>&mdash; lindsey ok (@lindseyyok) <a href="">June 12, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

Yes, Jurassic Pick is a much better nickname.

6. Let's check in on Trevor Lacey and his progress on preparing for the draft (h/t @jwgiglio).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Lacey: &quot;Actually at my Laker workout, they called me a good defender. That surprised me.&quot;</p>&mdash; Joe Giglio (@jwgiglio) <a href="">June 16, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

I'll take that as a positive!

7. Hey, did you know former UVA player Joe Harris plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers? (h/t @jeffzillgit).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Cavs guard Joe Harris walking from his downtown pad to Game 6. <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Jeff Zillgitt (@JeffZillgitt) <a href="">June 16, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

Who knew? Honestly, I would have never been able to pick him out of a crowd. He's just a regular guy!

And despite what Jim Ross said, we're still keeping our moment of wrasslin! Without further ado...


Ya know, good ol' JR has become such a fan of Game of Thrones, he decided to tune into the finale. He was, as many others were, pretty damn upset at the outcome of the finale. See for yourself!

See y'all next week!
