On the way home from church yesterday Ciera declared we needed to pick a favorite ACC team, since, and I quote, "We have NC State, Duke, AND Carolina T-shirts. What is wrong with us?"
I should clarify and say that I'm considered an oddity by most of my fellow Carolinians. I could care less about college sports, in particular college basketball. I'll watch a football game here and there and definitely know who won the National Championship, but I could give a rats hind quarters about basketball.
Put it this way; I live with Rakes and Trot (and more and more Ciera) 365 days a year; Like I need a freaking MONTH called "March Madness"?
So while most of the country debates the merits of Duke vs Kentucky or why North Carolina can't beat Duke when it counts or why the University of Podunk didn't get that elusive 68th seed, I'm anticipating seeing Carl Crawford fly around Fenway and Youk stabbing either a line drive or the visiting teams 3rd base coach and Pedroia giving Tito the hot foot on "Sunday Night Baseball".
Most of all? I cannot freaking wait to see the guy Tito is already calling "Gonzy" use the Green Monster as target practice.
"The Road to the Final Four" can bite my tweeter.
Give me Opening Day or give me death.
