Chansky’s Notebook: The Harvey Rules

They are calling the Dark Knight the Pale Pawn. Former Tar Heel Matt Harvey made it big in the majors a year after he joined the Mets in 2013. That’s when his menacing beard and tough-guy demeanor on the mound made him an all-star and gave him his nickname, which he played to the hilt as a man about town. Things aren’t so good for the Dark Knight these days. (Chapelboro.com)

Turner's Take: Business Trip, Too

Joe Breschi had planned to be in Philadelphia this weekend. In 1991, the Carolina men's lacrosse team won the NCAA Division I Tournament with an 18-13 victory over Towson.

Meeks flourished during the NCAA tournament, finding his offensive groove and contributing to UNC's Final Four run. (Carolina Blue)
