Pictures Of The Day

FIRST ACC GAME IN CHINA.  Last night, the UNC v. N.C. State game was the first to be televised live in China.  Maybe now they will stop watching horse fights and stick to basketball.  Here two stallions confront each other at a horse fighting contest on February 18, 2011 in Rongshui, Guangxi Province of China.  If one horse falls down or runs away, the other one is declared the winner.  According to newspapers in the U.K. the event is under attack from animal rights groups.

HOUSE DIVIDED.  It’s a frequent occurrence in North Carolina – different members of the household pulling for different teams.  Here, Joey Brown from Hickory and his step-son Cooper Wray, 13, watch the players warm up before N.C. State's game with UNC Wednesday February 23, 2011, at the RBC Center in Raleigh, N.C. Brown said there are three Carolina fans and three State fans in their family. As for Cooper, Brown says "he hasn't matured yet; that is why he doesn't know any better." (Photo by Ethan Hyman/Raleigh News & Observer)
IT’S RAINING SHUTTLECOCKS, HALLELUJAH! Shuttlecocks are pictured during England Badminton squad practice at the National Badminton Centre on February 23, 2011 in Milton Keynes, England.  Go ahead, say it out loud: You simply don’t get this kind of coverage ANYWHERE else.
