Tarheelified ACC Tournament Open Thread

I see that SD cant be bothered to start one of these unless her team is playing.

How bout that red BLUE suit?

Three games so far, three upsets

Story time:
My introduction to ACC basketball was in middle school. I had been around Villanova basketball, and Alabama/Auburn/TN, so I knew what college sports could be.

Then on a friday afternoon, my math teacher turned the tv on, and let us watch Wake Forest play State. It was at that moment that I knew I was around something new and amazing.

Comments

So far tonight

I have seen State upset Duke. Found out the Firefighters union is having a bipartisan forum and wont be inviting 9-11 "hero" Rudy. And, found out Newt is a giant (not commenting on his girth) hypocrite (as if i didnt know already).

I may stop smiling next week sometime. maybe tuesday.

I didn't get to see the entire game

We listened on the road on the way back from Em's dance class and then watched State win. I never, ever thought I would pull for State so enthusiastically. All I can say is I'm glad we're not playing you next!

In his first season

Sid has beat UNC, beat Duke in the tourney and has a top recruiting class for next year. Did I mention the perma-smile?

Yes, you mentioned it. Sigh. You're going to be hell to live with around here.

psh. just remember that you can walk away from the computer. think of all the poor people who had to talk to me after the steelers won the super bowl.

I can top that...

I got to have the Steelers win the Super Bowl AND the Tarheels win the National Championship in back to back years. Then, Dems won the House and Senate.

veeeeeeeeeeeeeeery excited.

our daughter wants her here now, so they can share a room.

Our son wants to make sure he's not going to be left out, but he has promised to be my diaper-changing helper, he's very serious about it.

That is one cute kid. I know you are proud.

Lovex7

You do have beautiful kids

Didn't you post a picture once of the two at the planetarium? I might be confused with someone else. Katie was too young to understand she would have a sister. Ahhhh...those were the days. They used to be so sweet to each other. Sigh.

I hope it can't compare

I hope it's dull, boring, typical ACC basketball. Yeah...right.

Work thinned out

yesterday after noontime. Lots of people out today. Ghost town. You'd think it was a religious holiday or sumthin.

Could we please do something

about all this RED up in here? ;)

I'm thinkin' some sky blue would do the trick. d:^D

Now that's

It should be sent to all our State fan friends. With SD's prayer below attached.

Ok....now that's hilarious

I just hope we don't play them again and lose.

that's funny and it's sick

That photo with Sid in blue is pretty dang funny folks. But, it looks sick. That god-awful blue is just god-awful sick! Wolfies are gonna win the ACC, just wait and see! Last night was the first time I've really watched them, boy they're a lot more fun to watch that "Herbie" ball ever was.

i believe in these guys

There is something about Sid that makes me believe we will win, even when we have almost no hope. With Herb you could predict 95% of the games, including in the tourney. It was tough to root for them.

I cant wait for next year (and tonight)

Hi Denny.

One of my old friends from another blog life is visiting. Pagandenman. A very cool guy in Colorado.

Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Man....if this keeps up

Sidney might just earn his red coat back.

Don't get your hopes up too quickly

However....the entire family was down here cheering for State. That has NEVER happened before. Maybe Sidney's real lucky color is Carolina Blue.

i cant decide

who to root for in the late game. On one hand Wake is the worse team. On the other we beat VTech twice during the season. But its tough to beat someone three times. But does it matter who we play?

Thanks for rooting for us. I cant lie, im not that nice.

Yeah

as a 2-time Duke grad I was actually cheering State on today ... between trips to the Maalox bottle.

How'd you like to have to root for Navy?

I confess, I still like it when they beat Army, but most of the time I'm happy when they get their butts kicked.

my god

the things they do to that town. ugh.

there is nothing worse than getting in the car and having to sit at a light for 20 minutes while a bunch of middies walk down the street to watch football.

Once upon a time...

I was at a State-Carolina football game. Carolina was up big early in the second half. They ran a draw play that seemed to have everybody fooled, then out of nowhere came this linebacker - WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK. It was fairly quiet in the stadium because the game was lop-sided at the time, so you could really hear this hit.

There was silence through the entire stadium for a second, then from back up behind us came the classic Southern accented call of..."It. Is. On." Which as y'all know sounded something like

"Eeut. Es. Own."

The state fans went nuts.

State. Carolina.

Nothing could be finer.

I went to a

State v Carolina HOCKEY game. It was intense.

I dont think the rivalry is as personal as Alabama/Auburn, or Michigan/Ohio State but that is because we have more things to do with our time (case of former) and are just nicer people (case of latter). But, it is still a little insane. My stomach is full of butterflies.
