The Jolie Pez Project: The Jolie Sees NC State Beat Carolina In Chapel HillPosted: November 22, 2010
The Jolie stopped in North Carolina for a day while in transit from her soon to be published California adventure to her upcoming visit to the Washington, DC area. This visit was completely unexpected, but apparently she wanted to see The Omawari-son and the North Carolina State Marching Band play at the big football game between NC State and the University of North Carolina.
The Jolie complained the whole ride about having to pay $5 for a ride to the stadium from a satellite lot in Chapel Hill. She was starting to get on everyone’s nerves until…
Before going into the stadium we got some good eastern North Carolina barbecue. I offered to get her some but she insisted she wasn’t hungry. As soon as I sat down to eat, she suddenly had to have some. I kept trying to push off the weird hushpuppie-ish stick things on her, but she insisted on trying to get my slaw and ‘cue.
The Jolie was happy to be so close to the field. She also wondered why they padded one post, but not the other, of the play clock at the corner of the field (look for the man pulling up his pants…one post padded, one post not). Does one post not hurt like the other? But then she realized that the construction scaffolding was going to block her view of the band she traveled across the country to see. She was very upset.
On an semi-related note, unless you are an action figure, if you go to a game at Kenan Stadium you should expect to have no leg room. I’m not a tall guy, but my knees were against the seat in front of me. The Jolie found it spacious.
Eventually we went around and stood behind where the band was and watched a very exciting win by North Carolina State over the University of North Carolina. The Jolie asked me to hold her up while the band played their school’s alma mater for the victorious team.
We got out of the stadium in time to watch The Worlds Most Dangerous Marching Band march out. The Jolie was so excited she forgot to turn around and watch them go by. She just kept smiling and dancing.
The Jolie rushed off after the game to head north to her next host, Hippie Cahier.
