All the lights were off in the room where I saw Prince and Sugar Ray in 1997. Not in the same evening though. For the next few minutes I thought I could summon some former navigation skills and find that stairwell where I gave directions to Mark McGrath my freshmen year at USC.
On Thanksgiving morning I had entered the Carolina Coliseum near the Elephant Room on Park Street. In the late 90's I had often navigated the depths of the building while covering basketball for the student paper. I passed two goals labeled, "Frank McGuire Arena" and the area where the Coach Eddie Fogler used to give his post game press conferences. The gears in my head cranked away as I tried to remember the bowels of the venue that also housed my media arts classes. I followed the sign for the locker room knowing it would take me out to the main room where I assumed they would be feeding up to 2,000 people. No such luck. Eventually I gave up trying to find my way around the basement of the coliseum and walked outside to enter through the main concourse.
"Thursday, a line stretched outside the Assembly Street entrance as guests waited for the traditional Thanksgiving feast. The meal included turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, cranberry sauce, salad and bread. The dessert list was just as long, ranging from pumpkin and sweet potato pie to pound cake and Rice Krispie treats."
"Cooper, a junior, will forego his final year of eligibility and enter the 2016 NFL Draft, his father told The State on Tuesday. A native of Havelock, N.C., who signed with South Carolina in 2013, Cooper has been South Carolina’s most dynamic offensive weapon the last two years."
Sometimes I have the opportunity to shoot and edit video stories. Most of the time it depends on deadlines and still photo workloads. This one is about kids trying to ice skate outside of The Columbia Museum of Art on Thanksgiving day.
