wine by the color

By now, most folks have probably heard this sad story about the North Carolina mascot who died from injuries sustained when he was struck by a car on a New Jersey highway last weekend.

Halfway through that article, this quote from UNC coach Roy Williams jumped off the page at me:

"Obviously our team is disappointed with the outcome of Sunday's game, but that pales greatly in comparison with the loss the Ray family is dealing with today."

Do you really have to mention your team's disappointment about a basketball game as an introduction to reacting to a tragedy that resulted in the death of someone who apparently lived to support your team? Is it just me, or does that seem incredibly insensitive?

Perhaps Roy really doesn’t give a shit about North Carolina
