Some housekeeping items: Don't forget to vote in the final of our What If Tar Heel Tournament. Also, as of Sunday, the official home of Tar Heel athletics is GoHeels.com.
Tar Heels in the Pros
Well, they won't be in Carolina uniforms next year, but a quartet of Tar Heels will be representing UNC as NBA rookies, as Harrison Barnes, Kendall Marshall, John Henson and Tyler Zeller were all taken in the first 17 picks last night. Congratulations to them.
The Suns' blog says Marshall should remind fans of another Phoenix point guard. Roy Williams thinks the right team picked Marshall.
Warriors general manager Bob Myers is pumped to see HB in a Warriors uniform.
Dallas took Tyler Zeller at 17, then traded him to Cleveland for three picks.
This Nets fan has no idea who his team selected, but he's pumped anyway.
Adam Warren makes his Major League debut tonight, taking the mound for the Yankees in a home series against the White Sox.
The Mariners are at home against the Red Sox this weekend.
All-Star voting has ended and results will be announced Sunday afternoon.
I've been enjoying watching Euro 2012, and the final between Italy and Spain is Sunday at 2:45 Eastern.
If you're looking for Tar Heels in MLS, catch Jalil Anibaba, Logan Pause and the Chicago Fire as they take on Sporting KC tonight on NBCSN at 8.
The Dirty South Fest is at Cat's Cradle on Saturday. I remember the Pietasters.
If you're keeping cool in a movie theater this weekend, Rotten Tomatoes says Ted is funny, and Magic Mike is good.
I watched The Bicycle Thief on Netflix a couple of weeks ago. It's heartbreaking.
Finally, it feels like a Van Morrison kind of day. He announced a new album this week.
