Blog on the Run: Reloaded

Sweet Caroline

I’ve always wondered how it was that Davidson fans came to embrace this Neil Diamond hit. The only connection I could make was that it came out in 1969, the last time the Wildcats advanced beyond the first round of the NCAAs. Fortunately, The Charlotte Observer is here to explain it.

It’s hard to explain how this feels. The last time I was this invested in such an underdog was 1977, when UNC-Charlotte made the Final Four, knocking off No. 1 Michigan in the process.

This is even better.

UPDATE: This from Mom, who lives there: “This town is crazy right now. Biggest thing to happen to us since the Harris Teeter opened in February.”



  1. Maybe they picked it up around when the Red Sox did. I don’t know why the Sox picked it up either.

  2. Glad to hear that Harris Teeter continue their relentless pusuit of world domination. Do they still have a section titled ‘Non-Foods’?
