Buying 29 Carolina Walk Condos

Our Serrus team buying 29 Carolina Walk condos directly across the street from Williams-Brice Stadium has also carried with it so many laughs. First, Steve Mudge, Jim Ness, and I all were on football scholarships with Clemson. The head of the home owner association is Ted Wingard. He and his brother were great players at USC. The jokes rolled between us all. When the newspaper editor from The State, Kristy Eppley Rupon, called I was terrified that somehow this would be a negative to people. She wrote a fantastic news article that absolutely blew up our public reactions. Steve and I have had calls from folks from the distant past. In the article, I tried to discount us as contributing players. That's true. My family has plenty of Gamecocks. Three of our daughters graduated from USC. In fact, one graduated from USC Law School last Friday. I'm very familiar with the rivalry. Like most families, the rivalry is something to enjoy around every Thanksgiving. The games are so intense that it can bring out the best and worst of people. My greatest memory was walking off the field in 1973 after a defeat in Columbia. During the game my name had been called by the announcer, once in the first half and once in the second half. "Mrs. Leighton Cubbage ...your purse has been found...you can pick it up...” etc. I remember Leon Hope, a running back, teasing me and laughing on the bench. "Cub, go get that purse of yours!" I just explained it had to be my momma and they had my name mixed up with my dad's. As I walked toward the dressing room after the game, I heard a distant shout: "Your PURSE, your Purse…." It was about 10 friends from Sumter, led by the dreaded Moise’s. They had created a fake purse to turn in and jerk my chain. We are hosting a party in Columbia this weekend for the home owners of Carolina Walk. Maybe they will forgive our Orange heritage knowing more about my personal and public humiliation. Oh yeah, we love the project and are having fun with everybody. Thanks, Leighton Cubbage
