Don't Let the Door Hit You

The tournament was rolling along in a predictable fashion yesterday. There were no upsets, everything was going according to plan and then Duke hit a bump in the road. Despite racing out to a big first half lead and having a double digit lead with 11 minutes remaining in the second half, they lost to VCU on a jumper by Eric Maynor with 1.8 seconds to go in the game. I'm not sure at this point if I'm happier when UNC wins or when Duke loses. Thankfully I had the best of both worlds yesterday. Unfortunately I missed the press conference where I'm sure a tearful Coach K told the world what a wonderful group of kids he has and that he doesn't really care about winning and that it's all about teaching the kids. What a bunch of bullshit! Even though the selection committee had once again given Duke as easy a road to sweet sixteen as they could, Duke couldn't hold up their end of the bargain.

So I bid a fond farewell to the Blue Devils for another season. Let's hope that next season brings more of the same. And congratulations to Louise for picking the upset.
