Black humor

Posted By on Thu, Apr 12, 2007 at 5:55 AM

In John Brummett's hands, the Hog soap opera becomes a tragi-comic opus. Beholding the announcement of yet another basketball coach, he writes:

First, there was the White crackup, which was a clever twist, considering that viewers would have expected it of Broyles instead.

White, the chancellor of the school, which is a supporting role to Broyles, got up and started rambling about Yogi Berra and "Groundhog Day" and wound up carrying on about kudzu and pines and bluegrass and coal mines and lowlands and Lord knows what all.

Everybody was looking at him trying to figure out what he was talking about. The camera went to Broyles, who had fallen asleep.

And, yes, he has Houston Dale text-messaging on the sidelines.

I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
