Mick Mixon Going Pro
I'm glad to see former fellow Granville-ite Mick Mixon get the Carolina Panthers radio play-by-play job. It's a great opportunity for him.
For the past 16 years, Mickey, as I knew him when we attended UNC together, did a . . . great job sitting alongside Woody Durham as the color man on Carolina (Tar Heels, that is) football and basketball broadcasts. His familiar voice—and lousy jokes and puns—will be missed.
I told him this afternoon that he should pursue Granville Towers as a sponsor for the Panthers pregame show, so that he could continue to reminisce on the air about the good ole days sitting by the pool at the "Carolina Hilton." Good luck in the Queen City, Mick, and remember to take along a good supply of Beefmaster hot dogs with you.
