The biggest rivalry in sports…so some say: Duke v. Carolina. Two colleges 8 miles apart. Two outstanding, renown basketball programs. It’s what my extended and immediate family looks forward to with an enthusiastically coordinated collaboration of team spirit. As the expression goes, we bleed Carolina blue.
And yet, last night while the game played, I was tuned to my computer instead of the TV. We were on countdown for the first round of Kassie’s Closet invitations to be extended – 14 months in the making. I had more built up anticipation for the glorious Closet launch than for a glorious Carolina victory.
I don’t usually credit Duke or Duke players with much. It’s part of the rivalry and is mutual I assure you. But I will say that while Carolina didn’t win, I hope the Closet has as much magic as Austin River’s impressive (aka heart-breaking) 3 point, buzzer-beater. Then I’ll really have something to celebrate!
