So I’m driving home from work today, and I have Primetime with the Packman on (I know, I know, you all hate me now). Annnyyways, they have Danielle Trotta of WBTV on as a guest, since she is in some female news anchor of the year contest they have going on.
So Packer starts asking her about her job, interests, hobbies, etc. First of all, she starts off by mentioning she is a Charlotte 49er. Just as I was about to think, “hey this is awesome, this chick on Primetime is going to give us some love”, it starts to go downhill… fast.
She starts out by whining about how the alumni get on her when she forgets to report the Niners scores. Well NO **** DANIELLE! Of course we want you to DO YOUR JOB. So that’s the first thing that got my blood boiling, the bitching about our alumni actually wanting her to report the Niners scores along with the ACC, SEC, etc that she reports.
OK so then Mark starts asking her about her interests. The convo turns to sports, and he asks her what her absolute favorite thing in sports is, and she says… YEP! You guessed it! GOING TO CHAPEL HILL TO TAR HEELS GAMES! No, she didnt mention anything at all about the team of the school she actually went to. She then goes on about what a huge Tar Heels fan she is, and starts talking smack to Mike Giminski about Duke. I’ll bet she has no ill will towards Cincinnati, Davidson, etc, but boy she suuuure hates those Dukies! :rolleyes:
This is just so typical and makes me so sick. It’s people like her that are the reason our alumni donation % is so damn low. Have some pride in your school.
I know she is probably a nice girl and maybe she does give to the school, come to games from time to time, etc, but to be on the radio and give your team no love, complain about the alumni, talk up Chapel Hill… that’s just wrong for a Niner to do.
When will it ever end…
