The Thrill-a-Minute World of Journalism

Let's take a moment and pity the poor News and Observer intern who was tasked with the job of calling the parents of various UNC players. You know, just to catch up. See how everything's going. And maybe find out if their kids had shared any life-altering decisions with them. If there was anything that came to mind, anyway.

Ellington's and Lawson's folks wisely ducked the call, while Hansbrough's father let slip a cruicial bit of information that his son had broken his cell phone. Which totally means he staying. Or leaving. Or that there will be six more weeks of winter.
