carolina - duke I: live blog: pre-game

I've eaten dinner (ribs from Dreamland, after all it's a special day), realized that my mind has turned to mush (I wanted to bid on two PSA 10 1969 Topps Decals and remembered a little more than three hours after the auction ended), but my Mountain Dews haven't (they're a little icy, but nowhere near frozen), decided against ironing (which I should be doing) and now we're just minutes away from the tipoff of UNC - Duke I of 2007 (it often goes best two out of three if you count the ACC Tournament).

of course, Duke has lost their last two (Virginia and Florida State) and Carolina lost Saturday at NC State.

and McRoberts isn't starting?

finally, this seems to be the perfect time to mention that if you care ANYTHING AT ALL about the subject of this post then you should really pick up my buddy Will Blythe's To Hate Like This Is To Be Happy Forever (now in paperback).
sure, it's about basketball and the Carolina-Duke rivalry, but that's really just the surface. and if for some reason my recommendation ain't reason enough, here's an interview I did with Will just about a year ago (when the hardback came out) for Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill's Independent Weekly.
