There are a few times of the year that I get excited, but this happens to be one of the times that I get really excited. In terms of sports excitement, March Madness has me captivated.
I enjoy College Basketball, and enjoy the coming weeks. I enjoy watching teams compete, as well as the opportunity for the underdog to soar! Cinderella is invited to dance, and many times she is given the opportunity to find her Prince Charming.
I happen to be a Duke Apologist and so I enjoy watching my team on television more than we are accustomed. However, alas, Duke already hit a major stumbling block. After winning 7 of the last 8 previous ACC tournament titles, Duke lost last night in overtime to NC State.
Previously, Duke was probably looking at about a number 3 or 4 seed in the NCAA tournament, but I am afraid that due to their recent loss to the dreaded Tar Heals of North Carolina coupled with this early exit from their conference tournament, Duke is now looking at something far worse.
I may be a Duke apologist, but I am not foolish enough to place them out of the second round. But that won't stop me from rooting for them, screaming my head off, and rooting for Cinderella to get her shoe.
No Duke game to sit and watch this weekend. Guess I just have to wait until next week.
Let's Go Duke!
