*****Disclaimer* Sorry if this post bores you. It’s all about my love for the game and the passion I have watching my Tar Heels play!*****
You’ve been warned! 🙂
It’s that time of year in college basketball! It’s Rivalry week! Thursday night is the showdown between the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Duke Blue Devils. Game on! There is no bigger rivalry in this sport! Honestly, in all sports! Think I’m kidding? You wanna know how close this rivalry is? In the past 100 games, the series is tied 50-50. They’ve each won 50 games. That’s how close it is.
The Tar Heels have been struggling this season. They’re coming off a championship win last April and they ended up losing some players to graduation and the NBA draft. It’s time to rebuild! But if Joel Berry and Luke Maye show up healthy we definitely have a great chance to win!
And because they are rebuilding, I’m a little worried about this game. Duke is hot this season (ugh, I can’t believe I just typed that but I have to be honest!) Duke loves to shoot the 3s. The Tar Heels are having a hard time at defending the 3s.
I know that both teams are putting in their very best in practice in preparation for this HUGE game! They will play twice this season as they always do. This game will be on the Tar Heels turf and then the one in March will be on Duke’s turf.
Carolina-Duke is THE best rivalry! Hands down, no questions about it! And hey, don’t forget…..Michael Jordan was a Tar Heel! THE GOAT! (For all you non-sports fans who have graciously read this far, it means Greatest of All Time)
I’ll be heading over to a friend’s house (who are also HUGE Tar Heels fans) on Thursday to watch this big game. I’ve got my jersey ready!
This is the way I get during this time of year. I LOVE watching basketball and I love the passion involved. I get just as passionate watching a game as they players do playing the game!
When March Madness rolls around in a few weeks, I’ll be one of those millions of people who fill out a bracket. I get all into the MADNESS!
Go Tar Heels!!!!!
