OT: The Best Day in Sports

Tonight it's Duke-UNC at Cameron Indoor Stadium. That's really all I can say, FU @ World Series, World Cup, and even the Final Four compared to this :D :lol: About two and a half hours 'til tipoff, hot damn. I lost five bucks on Wazzou earlier this week versus my friend's 20 on Stanford, but this'll cheer me up for sure.

Anyone else here counting down the next.. two hours twenty minutes with me?

[edit because I really do know my days of the week, honestly]

while i agree totally that symbolically, duke-unc is huge, given that pitt would kill either team makes it kinda moot. im not sure which team you like, but either way, neither team has a chance at making the final four unless they show some capability to hold a decent team under 75 points. that said i will certainly watch.

As far as I see it, UNC is the typical "we're ranked in the middle of the top 25 polls but really can't be expected to beat anyone else on that list" team they've been in recent years while Duke is sticking to their motto of "we're the Yankees of the NCAA and are in contention every year but comes up short 9/10 of the time and can't make good pro players". That said, I don't really care who wins, it's gonna be great :)

Huh, you're a bit early with that....

Best day is the match 7 of the Stanley Cup finals when Detroit Red Wings beats whatever they're against :D

Second best would be HIFK beating Jokerit in the Finnish hockey league finals, which will be happening soon...(sorry Lpr, Joutaja and Topi, that is if you're cheering for some other team :lol: )

Duke V UNC should be a good game, but personally, I cant wait until tomorrows Missouri V Kansas. Its the last game ever in the Hearns Center (Mizzous arena), and its a rivalry as heated as any in the country, we just dont get the press like the coasts do. Hearns will be rocking, go Tigers!
