It's not true, but there are so many fantastical stories about Currie, former WSOC-TV sports director and Tar Heel football and basketball announcer, that it became legend. Currie, who died this week at 85, was a complicated man, a study in contrasts as vivid as the 50,000-watt plaid sportcoats he'd wear with mismatching pants.
