The Thrill of Victory…


I’m always proud to be an alumna of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  However, on Saturday, I was ESPECIALLY proud, as I witnessed my Tar Heels sneak a victory over the Hurricanes of the University of Miami.

Here’s me enjoying the game (yes, from the UM section):

Nothing like being a Tar Heel fan, especially when you get to hear things like this, as so eloquently stated by a disappointed UM fan, “Man, we got beat by an f***ing basketball school.”  Dude, you sure did…and we loved every bit of it!

Go Heels!

PS:  I am also an alumna of the University of Georgia.  I was deeply saddened by their being massacred on Saturday evening.  That’s all I have to say about that.

  1. As a long time supporter of the Hurricanes, all I have to say is “Booooo!” It’s all good though, the Canes are young and explosive; they’ll be back on top next year. Plus, NC’s coach Butch Davis basically built the Miami Dynasty back in the day! 305 All Day!

    P.S. The Dawgs were overconfident, that’s why they lost. Bang Bang! 🙂

  2. Roll Tide…Roll! Living in Georgia for about three years now. Despite that fact, I Always root for my home state teams, whether it’s Alabama or Auburn (unless they play each other, Roll Tide). Especially when they play Georgia.

    31-0 at Halftime, that’s a true beatdown! Can we say OVERRATED
