Today's a lazy Wednesday at From the Rumble Seat. Winfield's busy chasing blonde ales and I'm busy at work (SHOCKER). Here're some good links to read to help you pass the day...
In case you haven't heard or don't live within 500 miles of Chapel Hill, the Tar Heels are looking at some nasty off season troubles

The ACC Preseason Player of the Year

This is kinda old news but Anthony Morrow is one of the best 3-point shooters

and is reportedly making $12 million over the next three years. Not bad for an NBA free agent.
