Good afternoon, TC here. I wanted to take a brief moment to publicly announce that from this day forward, TC is no longer a member of the Walpole, MA community nor the Michigan Wolverine community.
I'd like to start with Walpole. All of you know that I've put all that I can into the town of Walpole, whether it be by donating annually to the TC Foundation for Single Mothers, or winning High School state basketball titles by throwing in 18 a game. Over the past 12 months, I've volunteered my very precious time in getting the Walpole Little League All-Stars ready for the LLWS. It all seemed too good to be true when Michael Rando made a leaping catch against Ohio to make us 1-0. However, the lack of heart shown by these 12-year-old punks in the last two losses was unbareable to witness. I am utterly embarrassed that a town that I have graced can quickly forget the fundamantals of sports. TC prides himself on perfection, especially on national TV. These 12 year olds embarrassed a very tight community and should be ashamed of themselves for not living up to the hype that I've created.
Finally, the Michigan Wolverines: I don't care if Appalachian St. is "hot hot hot." The fact is that yours truly is an athlete and a scholar and I've never heard of this school, Boone, or the state of North Carolina, so that gives them three strikes. Plus, how can we lose to the school that Miss South Carolina attends! No TC led Michigan Wolverine team would have lost this game. Apparently neither Lloyd Carr, Chad Henne nor Shawn Crable is TC. It was an embarassing display of athletics at the University of Michigan.
You know, a few years ago Ben Harper asked me for some advice when he was a struggling singer/songwriter. I told him, "Ben, once in awhile when you love something, you're going to have to walk away." Now, it's time for TC to follow his own advice in this truly somber post. So there you have it...a wag of the finger to both Walpole and Michigan.
Now we can go on with the season since that is out of my system. Bring it on Fins! It's Business Time!!!
