Whew, what a crazy week we had last week y'all. Despite a valiant effort from 50 Shades of Brey (which was ultimately removed from a copyright claim by Notre Dame...lol), that wild sequence from the NC State-FSU game managed to pull out a victory. We've got a shorter but nonetheless potent list of entries on the docket for y'all this week, and I think you'll enjoy them as much as I did. As always, our good buddy JR will stop by to provide some commentary as well. Without further ado, let's get down to voting - which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!
1. Some kid graduating from Miami got a Stone Cold Stunner during graduation (h/t @almostkanye).
LEGEND https://t.co/H1kmvzrsdn— James Moriarty (@almostkanye) June 2, 2015
This might be my favorite vine ever. I literally can't stop watching this. I don't care that it was likely choreographed/planned for days, it's still hysterical. The only other thing it needed was Donna Shalala throwing up the U after it happened.
2. Announcers during the Michigan-Louisville baseball game took some time to debate an important question (h/t @the_Jameson).
Louisville vs Michigan announcers debate what to call your grandfather/grandpa #goacc https://t.co/rGx0XH80MX— Jameson (@the_Jameson) May 31, 2015
I think the funniest part is the way the second announcer says "grandfather" so angrily. Like, how could you honestly call him something other than grandfather? Hysterical.
3. Florida State baseball player celebrates hitting a double by faux shotgunning a beer (h/t @wmjsimmons).
Florida Man plays collegiate baseball. Florida Man hits a double. Florida Man goes full Florida in celebration: https://t.co/UbHlkufDEq— Matt Simmons (@wmjsimmons) May 30, 2015
As Mr. Simmons here noted, this is the most Florida man way to celebrate a double ever.
4. Kenny Chesney is a walking House Divided flag.
Kenny Chesney is a real life representation of those god awful House Divided flags #goacc pic.twitter.com/xnf6Ubjzsc— Will Thompson (@thrillis4) May 28, 2015
It's been well documented that Kenny Chesney is a noted superfan of a laundry list of teams. That said, the fact that he was photographed twice over a short period of time wearing both UNC and NC State gear just makes him look exactly like one of those damned House Divided flags you always see for sale.
5. The UVA and Maryland baseball teams had to share a charter flight and holy lord this picture is awkward (h/t @UVABaseball).
After a bunch of delays, charter flight back to DC is ready: Maryland on right, UVa on left. pic.twitter.com/dsRaSEOPDv— Virginia Baseball (@UVABaseball) June 3, 2015
First off, never seen something like this happen where two teams are on the same charter flight, but I guess it's not unprecedented. Second, there might as well be an imaginary barrier down the aisle because these teams are outright ignoring eachother. Or, maybe it's just because Maryland sucks. Screw Maryland. A-C-C! A-C-C!
6. This Syracuse alum has had enough of Boeheim, basketball and the football team (h/t @BudPoliquin).
At least one guy, a Roger Williams professor/Syracuse alum, thinks SU football and hoops must go. #SyracuseFootball http://t.co/QaM2IIkAYw— Bud Poliquin (@BudPoliquin) May 27, 2015
Good grief. There must be something in the water about hot takes in the papers, because he wasn't the only one...
7. This Op-Ed in the News and Observer about the UNC Scandal will give you third degree burns (h/t @joeovies).
The News and bserver http://t.co/Thy58YNGXm— Will Thompson (@thrillis4) June 2, 2015
This guy really, really wants UNC to burn for their scandal. Just an absolutely scorching take. But wait, it gets crazier! Patrick O'Neill, this author of the Op-Ed, went on with Adam and Joe yesterday afternoon to "defend" his Op-Ed. It went.........poorly. Take a listen here:
Patrick O'Neill asked to come on @999TheFan to defend his N&O op-ed calling for UNC to fire Roy. It didn't go well. http://t.co/VmU0mYePIU— Joe Ovies (@joeovies) June 2, 2015
The fact that he said his whole goal was to "create discussion" is a complete farce. This story's been talked about for the last 5 years.
And now, for your moment of wrasslin'...
THE JIM ROSS BAH GAWD MOMENT(s) OF THE WEEK!!!
Ol' JR was busy as hell this week y'all. First, he stopped by a rugby match, where someone got dropped with John Cena's standard finishing move:
OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD https://t.co/SAiK3gTf85— Timothy Burke (@bubbaprog) May 31, 2015
Yeouch. Next, the legendary play by play man decided to take in this week's episode of Game of Thrones!
Here's the return of the White Walker King, as called by Jim Ross (original vine by @jdavhill) https://t.co/DoPFyz4JfE— Will Thompson (@thrillis4) June 1, 2015
Finally, JR was pretty excited about Vince McMahon firing that clown Sepp Blatter:
Vince McMahon fires Sepp Blatter from FIFA! https://t.co/4RE3nLbAts— Will Thompson (@thrillis4) June 3, 2015
Have a great week everyone!
