My oldest son went to Duke. My middle son is a senior at UNC-Chapel Hill. As you can imagine, we are big time college basketball fans. We bleed two different shades of blue around here.
Yes, I cheer for both teams.
And now may I present something that will likely never happen again. Of all the brackets in the house, mine was the best. I finished in the 99th percentile!
I didn't do any score predicting, but I sure am proud that I predicted the Final Four match-ups. And of course I had to choose Duke to win.
Here's what I posted on Facebook before the big game:
We moved to North Carolina in 2002. Since we've lived here, we've celebrated one national championship with Duke and two with UNC. I'm blessed to be able to cheer for both teams, since one of our sons went to Duke and one to UNC! Today, though, I'm especially grateful for what a fun NCAA tournament this has been. ACC teams did themselves proud throughout the tournament. It all came down to a great Final Four with awesome teams. We lived in Michigan for seven years and Tom Izzo is one of my favorite coaches, so I'm proud that Michigan State made it to the Final Four. Lots of my loved ones are Kentucky fans, so my hat is off to that team, and I think they should be remembered for their amazing 38-win season, not for their one loss. And the Wisconsin Badgers are a wonderful team. How can you not be a college basketball fan today?Now if I could just get a little sleep!
