In preparing for a year-in-review talk I was invited to give last week at the Durham Sports Club’s Christmas party, I went through pretty much everything I had written in 2017 and then put together a 23-minute slide show that was a whirlwind tour of the year that was in sports in the Triangle.
But digging through those columns reminded me of several events and moments I had forgotten, and it struck me that a (limited) selection might be enjoyed by others as well. These aren’t the 12 best or the 12 most-read or any grouping like that, although some fall into both categories. They’re just 12 that I thought represented my year, and by extension our year, of sports here.
Among columns that didn’t make this cut: Catching up with former ACC referee Ron Cherry, N.C. State’s win over Arizona in the Bahamas, Archie Miller, the Hurricanes’ offseason moves and anything HB2-related (and there was a lot of that).
But these 12 do offer a few snapshots into the year that was. And thanks, as always, for reading, in 2017 and beyond.
