What a week the past one was. I had full intentions of setting my alarm to order the new iPhone 7, but failed miserably. Guess I’ll have to wait a few more months. Aside from that news, the clowns are creeping north.
September 11 was yesterday, and I still can still vividly remember the day that I stayed in recess for two hours when I was in fourth grade, not knowing what was going on. For the first time in 2016, freshman will learn about 9/11 as a historical event because they weren’t yet born.
Football during Week 2 didn’t disappoint (unless you’re a State fan). Here’s this week’s Twitter Roundup, in association with The Point.
On All Things #goacc: “Is it basketball season yet?” *Loudly screams all of Wolfpack Nation* If you watched the game against ECU over the weekend, NC State crapped the bed. Head coach Dave Doeren left a lot of points on the field, and the kickers couldn’t seem to make anything. Duke lost to Wake Forest, and UNC beat Illinois. Obviously, there were some good #goacc moments through and through.

On September 11: There’s obviously nothing funny about this historical day, so here are a few tweets to remember those who lost their lives on the tragic day of 9/11 that happened 15 years ago.
Did you know
2016 marks the first year freshman will learn about 9/11 as a historical event for which they were not alive?

Nothing has made my nation smaller, weaker or more afraid than 9/11. I don’t want to memorialize this day at all.

On Apple’s iPhone 7 and its AirPods: There have been rumors of Apple taking away the headphone jack on the new iPhone model. That rumor came to fruition this past week, where the company rolled out its AirPods. The wireless headphones chill in your ears and are somehow supposed to stay in place. Also, they are ridiculously expensive.
What happens when the air pod falls out of my ear on a run and rolls down a storm drain? This will happen.

Sorry Apple, I think marriage is the sacred bond between headphones and a traditional audio port. #StayWoke

On the Panthers Losing to the Broncos: I am very upset about this one. Cam Newton was hit in the head roughly 50 times, and the refs seemed not to notice. We did not get our Super Bowl revenge, but we do have Kelvin Benjamin back. And that, my friends, is a BEAUTIFUL thing.

Not gonna rule it out yet, but Panthers will have an uphill climb to go undefeated this season.

Panthers official says Cam Newton has passed four concussion tests:
-in locker room after game
-on bus to airport
-in CLT at 6 am

I went to bed at halftime and Panthers were looking good so I'm OK to head to Krispy Kreme for my doughnut special this morning, right?

On the Creepy Clowns: First spotted in South Carolina, there have been reports of clown sightings in both Winston Salem and Greensboro in the past week. And yes, they have apparently been trying to lure children into the woods. No. No. And no, again. Our very own Hayes Permar broke it down in a video for you guys.
The clowns are continuing their eastward trek on 85. Stay vigilant. https://t.co/vUdoubyZIm

Important to remember that most clowns are good and only a small percentage are evil beings from some sort of netherworld.
