A Pink Yoga Mat?

14 faithful posted in the balmy Columbia gloom to celebrate the arrival of 2013, reflect on where we’ve been, and chart a course for the upcoming months. It wasn’t all fun and games as Sway put the pax through a downPAINment session in preparation for college football all day. Is there a team from North Carolina – any team – playing today? We didn’t think so.

Ball of Man – Mission led prayer


  • FNG “Lambchop” arrived with a pink yoga mat and socks on his hands instead of gloves. It’s nice when someone provides such material for nicknames, and his energy was refreshing! Welcome Lambchop.
  • Logo will lead on Thursday.
  • Tajh delivered heartfelt appreciation for the group and the program. T-claps.
  • Noodle arrived in a low-riding Bravada that looked more like it belonged in South Central. It barely cleared the speed bumps. He blamed it on faulty automatic suspension adjustment, but we think he was channeling Cheech and Chong.
  • We really have not seen much Clemson gear in the AO. After their win over LSU last night, however, there was far too much orange attire this morning.
