Last Thursday I was at Jacob’s baseball game against a school in Carrboro when up walks none other than the man, the myth, the legend himself…Dean Smith. Austin, my team manager and UNC fan extraordinaire, wasted no time in securing a Sharpie and marching right up to him – managerial water bottle responsibilities be darned.
Coach Smith was incredibly kind and accommodating to take time for one of his younger fans even as he was there to watch his own grandson play baseball. (They beat us, by the way.)
Word has it that this shirt will be retired as well. It’ll go nice with the collection he’s already started.
