An excerpt from an email my friend Chad sent out:
Ladies and Gents today is the day we have been waiting for all season. It’s time to put aside the distractions and concentrate on THE game.
Remember only this – We are Carolina.As you settle in to watch tonight's game, no matter where you are, keep in mind that still, as ever, we are but a few that make up many. We are a small part of Tar Heel Nation and we're all in this thing together. We're bound to our brothers and sisters across these many miles by that which outsiders simply do not understand: a deep, profound, fiery, spitting hatred of all things dook and an unwavering love of Tar Heel Basketball.
