    Sure....this season has been massively disappointing as a UNC fan but I always love watching the tournament.

    Sending a Kings' legend like Jonathan Quick to hockey's equivalent of Devil's Island (Columbus) isn't a good look. Hope the return they got is worth the blowback they'll get for tossing a legend aside like an old shoe.

    I don't know shit about a lot of these hockey players but all I know is Quick hard carried the Kings to the 2012 Stanley Cup. This greatly pissed me off.

    Quick has been god awful this year but he did way too much for the Kings over his career to be sent off in that fashion. Disrespectful. I don't even like the trade....a first round pick in a deep draft for two rentals that are nothing spectacular. Kings are having a really good season but they aren't Cup contenders and these moves did nothing to move the needle this season or in the future. Stupid trade.

    Attending UNC-Duke tonight. It's the third UNC-Duke game I've attended and the previous two were at the Dean Dome. The hype for this one feels low.....two unranked teams and UNC fighting for their tournament lives but I still expect the energy to be off the charts at tip off.

    Never been to Rupp Arena but the atmosphere looks incredible. Kentucky has really turned their season around after that embarrassing loss to South Carolina. Looking like a dangerous team in the tournament.

    Rough outcome but still a fun experience. Hubert Davis is as good at coaching as Dave Roberts is at managing.

    No worries! I knew it wasn’t intentional. UNC basically has to win the ACC Tournament to go dancing now…yikes. Preseason number 1 to NIT.

    Unreal performance after three years off. Can’t believe I thought Gane had a chance…

    On a roadie to NC a few years ago a local suggested we visit the chapel at Duke. Not exactly my cup of tea, but being a compliant husband, I relented. It was incredible. Rest of the campus was beautiful as well.
