Deacon Blues: Meet the Press

dbmeetthepress

I was certain my apathy-induced disregard for Wake Forest basketball spelled the end of Deacon Blues.  But when Athletic Director Ron Wellman decided to meet the press today, another episode sprang forth from the sarcastic depths of fan hell.

Here’s the 8th episode of Deacon Blues.  In this episode, Ron meets with a hand-picked reporter for an all-holds barred discussion about the status and future of Wake Forest basketball.

Deacon Blues: Verbal Crossovers

So, just when we think things couldn’t get any worse for Wake Forest basketball, about half the roster decides to get on the transfer bus and get the heck out of town.

For a while I was mad about the mess that AD Ron Wellman and head coach Jeff Bzdelik have made of this program.  Then, over two years of absolutely horrible basketball, it became sort of funny.

Now, I’m struggling to hold on to that humor, and avoid complete apathy.

In that regard, here’s the 7th episode of Deacon Blues.  There is an email floating around the message boards today that is allegedly from Ron Wellman to the board of directors of the Deacon Club.  I cannot believe it is real, and at this point have to believe the email is a hoax.  But either way, WFU basketball is a complete mess.

In this episode, Ron reads his (alleged) email and a helpful Deacon fan translates it for us.

Deacon Blues: Couldn’t Be Happier

I thought I had retired Deacon Blues, but this story in the Winston-Salem Journal compelled me to create a 6th episode, in which Ron Wellman and DV7 discuss WFU basketball

Ron Wellman may be a great Athletic Director, but he is not winning these interviews.  If you stand up over and over and spout nonsense, you are hurting your cause.  You can spin, and you can craft a message.  You simply cannot make absolute statements like "I couldn’t be more excited about our future" unless it is a fact.  Or unless you just don’t care.

Deacon Blues: It’s a Wonderful Post

Now that Boardwalk Empire is on hiatus, Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter turned their attention to some real drama: the 2010-11 Wake Forest Demon Deacon basketball season.

Inspired by the creative writing at the DeaconSports WFU message board, Scorsese and Winter have produced Deacon Blues, a mini-series about the highs and lows of being a WFU sports fan.

As a holiday gift to all, the first episode was made available for free, on the net.
