Howdy. We've moved from Cayce, but St. Elizabeth of South Rose Hill or Lizette de Waccamaw de Sud just don't do it for me.

Yay! ACC Championship goes to Duke

Quick post, them I'm really really going back to my paper.

While Izzy and I yelled and cheered, and Caligula hid under the bed, Duke came back playing like a team that had been in championship games before. Yes, Florida State had several comebacks to decrease the margin of victory, but the Devils really looked like a strong team for the first time in a while.

I'll enjoy this victory and hope we survive next weekend. Either way, we still get to be the ACC Champs. And as a friend from NC (UNC fan actually) reminds me, here is no such thing as a regular season champ vs. tournament champ. There is only one championship, and we know too well what it feels like to lose it.

BTW: In the photo above, you'll see two smaller children. Those are Coach K's grandchildren, wearing 3's in honor of Senior Greg Paulus, a three year starter who graciously moved back to support the team playing 6th or 7th this year. Class acts all around.
