I Always Preferred the Red Kind

3557444We have a new favorite in the Best Name in College Sports competition, meet red-shirted sophomore Gelo Orange from Wake Forest. A linebacker by trade, Orange has several blocked punts on his resume, once of which was integral in the Demon Deacon’s victory over Boston College last November. Originally from Haiti, Orange moved to Florida in 2004 to live with his father, and that is when he took up football.

2009: The Year Fans Strike Back

College fans care passionately about their teams. But being that most college fans are also teenagers they don’t think things through too much, throw in the fun that is drinking before a sporting event and you get this fun clip. Chas MacFarland is a center on the Wake Forest basketball team, and while going to save a ball from going out of bounds he fell into a Clemson student, who apparently took umbrage at that. Instead of letting MacFarland up, the unnamed student instead tries to body-slam MacFarland back down to the ground. Because I’m sure the six jaeger-bombs you had before the game give you more strength than a 7′ 235 lb center. Seems like a good call to me!

The young lady in question, Cheyenne Woods, has been nearly as dominant as her uncle, some guy named Tiger Woods.

The younger Woods, who has been playing golf since she was 5, received training from her late grandfather, Earl Woods, who was instrumental in making Eldrick Woods into Tiger Woods. Unfortunately, because of the distance between their homes, Earl was never able to give her the same kind of instruction that led to Tiger being on his way to the title of greatest golfer of all time. However, both Tiger and Earl watch(ed) video of her playing and provid(ed) advice and evaluation.

Cheyenne has already won the American Junior Golf Association Nike Golf Junior, the Big I Junior Classic and two U.S. Kids Golf World Championships and she also shares quite the resemblance to her famous uncle.

All the hoopla surrounding her doesn’t seem to faze Cheyenne, she told the Charlotte Observer: Continue reading ‘Another Woods Arrives to Dominate Golf’
