    Chansky’s Notebook: 3 Was 2 Too Many

    August 23, 2016 at 9:15 am

    Coach K’s selfish Olympic reign is finally over. http://audio.chapelboro.com.s3.amazonaws.com/2016/August/23/ART%20CHANSKYS%20SPORTS%20NOTEBOOK_082316.mp3   Mike Krzyzewski did a tremendous job restoring America’s Olympic mission in basketball. Yes he did. In 2008, when his all-NBA dream team was focused, prepared and regained the gold medal for the U.S. For most coaches, that would have been enough. But not for Coach […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Why Not a One Team Town?

    August 22, 2016 at 9:10 am

    I will say it again. Chapel Hill should have one high school football team. Just because Chapel Hill has three high schools, why does it need three football teams in a town where football is not very popular among the kids, who win state championships galore in a bunch of other sports? They should have turned […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: World Wide Waste?

    August 19, 2016 at 9:15 am

    Wasn’t the internet supposed to simplify things? When the World Wide Web emerged more than 20 years ago, those who understood its potential claimed it would make life easier. Less mail and phone calls because everything could be paid and answered on line. Is that what happened? Quite the opposite. Yes, the internet is a […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: No Food Projectiles, Please

    August 18, 2016 at 9:30 am

    Stop the presses, more big news with Carolina athletics. Now that UNC has responded to the amended Notice of Allegations and Lew Margolis has told us that the Tar Heels should forfeit every victory back to the Choo Choo Justice era, Bubba’s staff has been working on some more really important stuff this summer hoping […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Olympics Better Than Advertised

    August 17, 2016 at 9:00 am

    Has your opinion of the Rio Olympics changed in the last week? Honestly, I did not know what to expect when I turned on the Olympic Games for the first time. The bad publicity surrounding the 31st Olympiad had me thinking I would see a half-built Olympic village and athletes wandering the streets of Rio […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Ben Griffin In The Hunt

    August 16, 2016 at 9:00 am

    Chapel Hill’s Ben Griffin could win the U.S. Amateur. UNC golfer Ben Griffin has faced long odds almost from the day he picked up a club. Griffin was always under-sized, a peanut with a graphite shaft in his hands. As a freshman at East Chapel Hill High School, Griffin stunned a Wilmington senior a foot […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Lucky To Have Seen Them

    August 15, 2016 at 9:00 am

    Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt are more alike than different. http://audio.chapelboro.com.s3.amazonaws.com/2016/August/15/ART%20CHANSKYS%20SPORTS%20NOTEBOOK_081516.mp3   One is a white swimmer from Baltimore who has won more personal gold medals than any Olympian in history. The other is Jamaican sprinter who is on track to go 9 for 9 in his gold medal races, trying to do what he’s […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Gone At Last

    August 12, 2016 at 9:00 am

    A-Rod is getting one ugly Farewell Tour. The decision by the New York Yankees to give Alex Rodriguez his unconditional release after tonight’s game in the Bronx has become the final distraction of a once Hall of Fame career that went terribly wrong. A-Rod may be one of the greatest talents to ever play the […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: Melo’s The Man

    August 11, 2016 at 8:45 am

    Carmelo and Kyrie saved the U.S. Basketball team. Kyrie Irving already proved he was clutch in the NBA, as his playoff run and late three-pointer in Game 7 of the Finals catapulted his Cavaliers over Golden State for the world championship. So we weren’t surprised to see Irving take over the game against Australia Wednesday […]

    Chansky’s Notebook: The Trench Fighter

    August 10, 2016 at 9:00 am

    Bill Dooley had some big wins at UNC from his very first season. When Dooley took over Carolina football in 1967, he ran off about half of the squad he had inherited. Spring practice was more like boot camp, and those who survived it could stay around and play for the Tar Heels in the […]
