Good Morning and Happy Friday!
Deep in my memory there resides a crystal clear image of one of the most eccentric events I have ever attended: the Woolly Worm Festival.
The Woolly Worm Festival is a lovely extravaganza celebrating that very same fuzzy bug. It is held right here in North Carolina and features live music, a weather guessing contest and, of course, a woolly worm race. Yes, they tie worms to strings and race them for a $1,000 prize. I told you it was strange.
Just like the town of Banner Elk has embraced the woolly worm, UNC forward Luke Maye has embraced his fuzzy accessories: his eyebrows. Lucky for us, Maye has withdrawn from the NBA Draft and will return to UNC for his senior season, and Carolina basketball fans are rejoicing. Perhaps we should host a festival in his honor. Roy Williams suit guessing game anyone?
