Sports Brief: 
 
These are tough days for the University of North Carolina football team.
 
Tunderstorms postponed the Tar Heels’ spring game this month and those clouds have lingered.
 
Rameses XVII. their blue-horned ram mascot, died Thursday from an infection, the Charlotte News & Observer reported this week…… on it’s FRONT PAGE!!
 
This, though, seemed newsworthy, as the 8-year-old Rameses was done in by (cue the sinister music) HIS SON!!
 
The Oepipus moment can two weeks ago in the field they shared, whe they butted heads – what father hasn’t done that with his son?? – and the collision snapped off one of Ramseses’ horns and an infection set in.
 
"On Thursday, I got up before daybreak and went out to check on him, and he was worse, "said Rob Hogan, keeper of the mascot.  "It was obvious he wasn’t going to make it".
 
His son, Rameses XVIII will assume the throne.
 
"The mascot is dead. Long live the mascot," wrote the News & Observer.
 
Yup!! It was a slow news day along Tobacco Road.
 
 
Trivia Question!!
 
How did the Tar Heels come to choose a ram as their mascot??
 
The answer came in 1922 from fullback Jack "Battering Ram" Merritt according to www.americasbestonline.net.
