As you may know, UNC multiple sports recruit “Toly Hansbrough” has, at the request of Butch Davis, taken up the sport of football. (OK, it wasn’t the Butch Davis, just some kid named Butch Davis who got mad at the Tolinator during a hoops whippin’ and said “Why don’t you go play football?”)

He is playing for the Fauquier Youth Football Colts in the 5-6 Instructional League. The team’s endeavors will be chronicled at


At the end of a big weekend that included a birthday party, a football game and a swimming party, T-Man was in between two “last day of summer vacation” trips to the Carousel Ice Cream Stand when he made the poor decision to give his mother some lip about something relatively insignificant. The exchange went something like this…

WHAT TOLY HEARD HIS MOM SAY: “I can’t believe you are acting this way when blah, blah, blah, you’re grandparents are taking you to get ice cream for the SECOND time today blah, blah, blah, how lucky you are, blah, blah, blah I ought to (insert disciplinary action of choice here) and march you upstairs to the corner in your room!”

WHAT TOLY SAID IN RESPONSE: “Do I have any options?”

Negotiating -- it’s an important skill set.
