Hi everyone. I hope you all had a great week, and were able to enjoy the fall weather over the weekend. I watched half of NC State’s game before deciding that a run would be my best bet. I was correct.
The third and final debate happened last week, which reminds me to encourage you to vote early if you haven’t yet done so. Here is all of the information that you need to know if you are registered to vote in Wake County. I know both candidates are less than stellar options, but just do it.
Read The Point, too.
On the Final Debate: On Wednesday night I excitedly turned on Empire only to find Donald Trump’s orange self staring back at me. It’s safe to say that I was extremely disappointed. I got through 30 minutes, and couldn’t listen for any longer.
1) Nothing Trump said will win over undecided independents needed to win
2) Trumps said he may not accept the results
End of list.

Wallace: Will you accept results of election?
Trump: "I will tell you at the time. I'll keep you in suspense."
Clinton: "That's horrifying."

On Early Voting: Early voting in North Carolina began on October 20. I already gave you early voting locations, but here are some tweets to go along with it. Wake County had a crazy-large turnout in the first day alone, so expect lines to stay long this week. Just yesterday, 38,258 people in Wake County voted.
Early voting starts today across North Carolina. Check your local Board of Elections for times and locations. No jokes here. Straight info.

I'm all for early voting but everyone understands there are still 17 more days to cast a ballot, right? It still counts on those days.

If you don't vote then your opinion doesn't count for 4 years… about anything… not even dinner suggestions. Your word is worthless to me

On NC State’s Epic Meltdown: A week after nearly defeating Clemson, NC State did the most NC Statiest-thing they could do by getting blown out by Louisville. The final score was 54-13. I felt like I was watching a repeat of the 2014 game against Clemson when the team lost 41-0, except this time it was with a QB who is even more athletic in the form of Lamar Jackson. Sad Doeren, sad Pack.
Why would I pay $30 for a haunted house when I can just watch nc state football for free?

That first half for NC State was the football equivalent of wrecking your motorcycle while out for a Saturday joy ride with your sidepiece.

Damn the game-changing moment was Louisville taking the field that's cold

Bad news: Louisville has 44 points
Good news: The Cards are still 85 points away from breaking the record for most points vs. NC State

Louisville going for Biscuits on State today?

On Other Triangle Sports News: UNC defeated Virginia over the weekend, while Duke had a bye week. Both the Blue Devils and the Wolfpack had their late night pep rally’s to kick off the basketball season. And finally, UNC’s Theo Pinson is unfortunately sidelined with a foot injury.
i would donate my foot to Theo Pinson but then he would not be able to dunk or pivot or walk through campus without tripping

Last night, Duke played what will undoubtedly be the toughest game on the schedule: the Blue-White game at Countdown to Craziness

There are McDonald's mascots on the Cameron court. It's the Hamburgler, Grimace and the Early Bird. No Ronald. Block is too hot for clowns.
