March Madness!

Chapel Hill, most notably is home of the nation's oldest public university, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Most of us who live in the state simply refer to it as "Carolina", unless you are a fan of their arch rival school Duke. In that case, you probably refer to them as the "Tar Holes" a spin on their team's mascot the Tar Heel. In North Carolina, college basketball is king and there is no greater rivalry in the world of college basketball than Duke versus Carolina. After living in the state for nearly ten years, I finally made it to a game between these two bitter enemies. And boy, did it live up to the hype!!

The outcome is obvious from the photo: Carolina 82, Duke 79 (March 9, 2003)

    Acemj, I would have to saw that Johnny's T-shirts on Franklin Street is "the" place to purchase Carolina wear. They are authorized seller, I think.
