This one’s hard to believe, so you may want to pour yourself a stiff drink.
There is — and again, we can’t possibly make this stuff up — a member of the North Carolina wrestling team named Long Wang. (Don’t try Googling this — trust us, you’re better off just clicking the link we’ve provided). Wang was a freshman last year, and did not appear to see any action in the 157-pound weight class. Perhaps the Tar Heels redshirted their Wang.
Since this is arguably the greatest name in sports history, we just can’t let go of Long Wang. That’s why Rumors and Rants will be home of the Long Wang Fan Club — look for official fan club t-shirts in the not-too-distant future. We’d even gladly be Long’s sponsor, but silly NCAA rules prevent that kind of thing from happening.
Still, as your official home for Long Wang coverage, we’re going to do everything we can to get Long Wang in the public eye. If he gets any action this season, you’ll read it here first. Because we like to hang out with our Wang out.
