The Rivalry

It was windy during the night and gloomy when I woke up this morning. I was worried about severe weather, since it has been so unseasonably warm, but that wasn't an issue.

After all the gloom in the morning, it turned out to be lovely with a high of 71 F. In the afternoon, I went over to the new house to admire the brickwork, up close and personal. My dad and I also wanted to make sure we documented which interior walls had insulation and which ones did not, since the large piles of sheetrock will be up soon.

For dinner we tried out Vegetarian Nuggets from the Whole Foods deli section. My mom had tried them before, so she was very eager to serve them to us. They are really pretty good. The texture is pleasant and reminiscent of meat. I'm a big fan of honey mustard sauce, so I was disappointed that we didn't have any, but they really didn't need any sauce. In that respect, they were actually better than chicken.

After working a while, it was time to watch the Duke v.s. Carolina basketball game. The Cameron Crazies were out in full force. For the last couple of years, they've done a superb job at dressing up for the games, with loads of face and body paint and outrageous wigs. They even had a Wizard of Oz troupe, to honor the first appearance at Cameron of Roy Williams as head coach of UNC. This isn't Kansas anymore and Duke proved it by pulling off a win. It was definitely an appropriate senior day for Chris Duhon and Nick Horvath.
While J.J. Redick wasn't burying three pointer after three pointer, he was essential to the game, with his guaranteed foul shots and his excellent ball handling ability, demonstrating that, unlike the opinion of the UNC player before the game, he was definitely in the picture without shooting much from outside the arc.
