Nothin' Could Be Finer...

THAN BEATING CAROLINA! I know, I know, it's risky business living in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and showing my allegiance to arch rival, Duke - -  But it sure is fun. It's nearly impossible to explain to someone who isn't from here, the sheer joy derived from watching our two favorite ACC teams go at it. But I'll try...

You see, my Dad was a professor at Duke University for 42 years. I spent almost every Saturday of my childhood with my friends in "The Devils Den" at Wallace Wade Stadium cheering on our Blue Devils. And then when I was in college, I had the pleasure of watching my own brother on the field, as he lived out his dream of actually PLAYING for Duke. So when I married my husband David, a native Chapel Hillian and UNC graduate, I knew things were going to get ugly. Talk about a house Divided! It might be worth mentioning at this point that my husband grew up in a Catholic home and I grew up Jewish. While this detail may not seem relevant, trust me, it is. When it came time to make plans for our wedding, and we faced the challenge of deciding what type of ceremony to have and where, we plowed right through it. No problem. When we had our three children, and had to decide in which faith to raise them. No problem. But DUKE vs. UNC ? STAND BAAACK!!! 

Suffice to say, it's all in good fun and it is never dull around here during football and basketball season.

And lucky me... I was fortunate to be able to attend the DUKE-UNC game last night at Wallace Wade Stadium with my dear, Blue Devil Brother, Lew. Duke had not defeated the tarheels at home since 1988. In the nail biting, heart pounding, excruciatingly stressfull final minute of the game, Duke managed to break that 24 year curse to score the winning touchdown with 13 seconds remaining on the clock. COMPLETE PANDEMONIUM.

Yet one more reason why I absolutely love living here.

Duke came out  F I R E D  U P!

Fans Storm the field... Congratulations Blue Devils!
