Posted by Andy Durham on February 7, 2013 at 11:20 am under College | 2 Comments to Read

State at Duke should be on FREE TV/WFMY TV 2 and we can hearken back to old days of Jim Thacker and Bones McKinney, or to Jim Thacker and Billy Packer, for tonight’s game and Duke will be the favorite since they are at home and Lorenzo Brown is not expected to play for State…I am still taking State by 7 points…..N.C. State never, and I mean NEVER loses when Jim Thacker, Billy Packer and Bones McKinney are mentioned in the same paragraph…..We will be watching on our local WFMY TV 2 station…And thinking back to the days of Thacker, Packer, McKinney, Woody Durham, Charlie Harville and Lonesome Lee Kinard….Plus the great TV cook, Cordelia Kelly….

And now your game schedule from our local ACC offices, also located here in Greensboro and we think back to the days when Jim Weaver was in charge of our league and the offices were located downtown in the old King Cotton Hotel, right where the News and Record offices are standing today…..

    Someone forgot to inform Duke about this rule.

    The scene:

    Mason Plumlee happens to be in Greensboro right outside the greensborosports.com office. He gets a tweet that quotes Andy Durham’s

    “N.C. State never, and I mean NEVER loses when Jim Thacker, Billy Packer and Bones McKinney are mentioned in the same paragraph”

    Mason walks into the office to see a surprised Andy Durham. Mason gets his best Forrest Gump voice going and says “Sorry I ruined your Wolfpack party”.
