Reconciliation at the ACC Tourney
I was given a ticket to see the Duke-Boston College game on Sunday, and so took one of the boys from the neighborhood to his first college basketball game (not a bad first game, eh?). The place was full of Duke fans, and none of them gave me a hard time about my wearing my 2005 National Champions shirt. Luckily I sat beside this sweet lady whose four kids had gone to Duke, and she was precious! She was nervous the whole game, and we had a great time talking. I even sort of wanted Duke to win for her (except that I can’t stand Duke and can’t imagine wanting them to win ever). We ended up hugging before we left at the end of the game (!), and I feel like I made new friend. Thankfully, I was only obnoxious one time, when I felt like Reddick flopped to draw a charge (YES, I am serious, he DID), and the withering looks I received from the Duke fans in front of me put me in my place.
