BROOKLYN — Jim Boeheim and Greensboro are not on speaking terms. And Greensboro is determined to have the last laugh.Boeheim mentioned the alternative fact that Greensboro has “no value” as an ACC Tournament location on Wednesday without being prompted in the least bit. The City of Greensboro Twitter account then responded by roasting Boeheim’s record in the ACC Tournament, handing him more L’s in Brooklyn.But the party in Tournament Town is far from over.On Thursday afternoon, the Greensboro Grasshoppers got in on the fun, announcing a promotional night dedicated to Boeheim and Syracuse residents. Less than 24 hours after Boeheim’s comments, Greensboro announced the “Jim Boeheim (No) Value Night” set for April 11 against the Delmarva Shorebirds.Just want to show our friends in Syracuse a little southern hospitality— GSO Grasshoppers (@GSOHoppers) March 9, 2017
(THAT ORANGE SQUEEZE, THOUGH!)All fans with a valid Syracuse, NY Driver’s License will be given a free ticket, $20 in food and beverage vouchers, and a pre-game meet and greet with retired Hall of Fame Bat Dog, Miss Babe Ruth”Contrary to what Jim Boeheim thinks, Greensboro is a great place and we want to show off our city, our ballpark and our southern hospitality to our friends from Syracuse,” Grasshoppers team president and general manager Donald Moore said. “We know that not all of them are whiners and grouches like their basketball coach.”The promotion will be complete with a “Whine of the Game” for the 7 p.m. game, something the head coach has been known for over the course of his career. Unfortunately, there has been no decision made about inviting Boeheim to this point.”We may invite the coach to attend, although his presence will bring us no value, none,” Moore said. “I suspect he may already have plans to be at a game in New York, Washington, or Atlanta, that evening and unable to come.”The game will come after the conclusion of the NCAA Tournament Championship Game, so it doesn’t appear Boeheim will be busy. Then again, he might not accept the invitation since, you know, there aren’t apparently any quality recruits in the state of North Carolina.
