Lake norman is north of charlotte. I lived near there for four years, then moved to the coast. Well near, between wilmington and wrightsville beach. Actually started in winston salem....

Lake norman was not so developed in 1988...

There was a swell SHer from Denver, NC and she told me a lot about the Lake Norman area...

How much danger would the NC coast be in if water levels keep rising? Or are they rising at all?

It has been some time since i was last there. But...the outer banks was low back then. There was a resort on the northern tip of wrightville beach that was taken by erosion while i was still there. The carolina beach area changed topography each time a hurricane blew near or through. Both beaches have homes very near the water. North carolina does not allow break walls or barriers to hold back erosion as they choose to allow nature to do her thing. Hence...beautiful beaches.
Without looking into it, my guess is rising water levels is becoming an issue.

Depends on your perspective.....many "greatest's" of all time lack that one valuable asset of all time. Humility. And, true humility is something you can't fake. To me, growing up in New England and, in considering this question, I would find it very easy to nominate former Red Sox shortstop/third baseman Johnny Peske. Was he among the greatest? Depends on what you value. I met him once when I was heading to my seat at Fenway, and we talked for just a couple of minutes. Reflecting on it puts a smile on my face, particular in this age of mega-contracts. I'll leave his bio below if you're so inclined.

Jon, there will never be a "greatest" of anything simply due to the succession of the ages. There can be a collection of greats from an era or whatever, but I would argue a "greatest" of all time. There will always be someone who comes along at a point in time who surpasses a record. It's just life, and why I'll never say greatest ever.

In sport things change, the equipment they use makes things easier to use and go further, more spin and lighter and you're right it's hard to compare those of yesterday against the players today...but we still refer to Pele as the greatest....tell Ronaldo that, hehe
