Frasor's dad debunks rumor

For those of you worried whether the family of UNC guard Bobby Frasor would be able to attend his homecoming game in Chicago Saturday against Valparaiso and his cousin's wedding that same night, breathe easy.

The Southtown (Ill.) Star chronicled the family's plans for the busy weekend on Sunday. But the article also buried the word from Frasor's dad that the Internet rumors linking Bobby Frasor and ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews were, um, false.

Not that Bobby Frasor minded being linked to the blonde television reporter, the elder Frasor said.

"Yeah, he called me one day, and he usually doesn't call unless something big is happening in his life," Bob Frasor told the Southtown Star. "He was all excited. He said, 'Dad, my street value has just gone up big-time.'

"He said, 'I don't know where this is coming from, but I don't mind.'"

Just to clear things up, the elder Frasor added, "As far as I know, it didn't happen." -- Lorenzo Perez, (Raleigh) News & Observer
