Late Night with Roy details set

CHAPEL HILL -- Doesn't seem like all that long ago that I was in a locker room in St. Louis, conducting interviews after North Carolina's final game of the 2011-12 season. And now the 2012-13 season is upon us. That's especially clear now, after UNC announced the details of Late Night With Roy.

As I'm sure you know, Late Night is the Tar Heels' annual celebration of the start of basketball practice. It's also an excuse, I'm told, to watch Roy Williams partake in some skits and a bit of fun.

Here's hoping his recent surgery won't hamper any of that.

The details for the 2012 version of Late Night With Roy:

When: Friday, Oct. 12 at 7:30 p.m.

Where: Dean E. Smith Center

Admission: Free

TV: Streamed live on ESPN3

Parking: $10 per automobile. No parking for Late Night will be available prior to 4 p.m. Approximately 300 spaces will become available 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. in the Rams Head Deck. Parking will then be on a first-come, first-served basis in the Rams Head Deck as spaces become available toward the end of the work day. The Craige Deck will open at 4 p.m. Parking will become available at 5 p.m. in the Manning and Bowles Lots and in the Jackson Deck. Disability parking will be in the Williamson Lot.

So there you have it ...

Um, no Andrew, I don't know. Never heard of it actually. You see, the world in fact does not revolve around your beloved and scandal-ridden Tar Heels. Why is this news? Why is a "Daily Tarcheat" campus-quality article posted in the Disturber? Anyone?

13I'll be right there watching on ESPN--NOT. All these midnight madness deals are geared to a 14 year old sense of "entertainment". I do hope Ole'Roy has fun making a fool of himself, though.
Keep up the good work, Andrew. You are Smithers to Roy's Mr. Burns.

Why would any non-student care? It's a chance for college aged people to act like they always have and always will. Adults have, or shoud have, more productive things to do. This article should have appeared in the university paper only said...

oh I could not go that event because I was so busy moving in to my new house, but I hope I can see soon there
