Once a Tar Heel always a Tar Heel, I guess. Politics and sports make strange bedfellows. The John Edwards love-child affair hasn't really crossed over into the mainstream media because, honestly, I have no idea why it hasn't. Probably because most of the people who would be reporting on the matter have a love child themselves or are engaging in torrid affairs. But until now this salacious story has had no connection to sports. No longer. According to the fine folks at Radar, Eric Montross is Edwards's bag man. Why a multi-millionaire needs someone to pay off his alleged mistress and love child is anyone's guess.
