Well, you should be able to figure out who I root for from my handle. (And it’s not N.C. State.)
Actually, we in KY might get over it if CBS will ever stop showing that damn Laettner shot from 1992 in the opening sequence to their NCAA coverage. That still elicits a sharp abdominal pain in the UK faithful.
Actually, Duke and UK fans have a lot in common. Either can claim to be the team of the 1990s equally well; each has kept the other out of a Final Four this decade in games the other thought they had locked up (that '98 game was worse than losing to UCon last year); each loathes that team from Chapel Hill. My conversations with UK fans indicate they are as knowledgable and rabid as we are. Contrast that with insecure, moronic UNC fans. I say we combine our efforts and gang up on the real evil.
So are UNC fans, though they’ll never admit it.
If anyone knows how I can get a ticket to see them when they play Duke in February, I’m all ears…
Plan A would be to borrow a Duke student’s ID (undergrad) or ticket (grad school).
Plan B – this worked for me last year – is to arrive at Cameron about an hour before tipoff. Stand near the main entrance (not the student entrance) and be as patient as possible, waiting for the right price to come to you. Don’t deal with scalpers, and don’t do anything to make it look like you’re a scalper. If you’re by yourself (as I was), you should have no problem finding a ticket. If you’re with a little kid, someone might give you tickets for free. Most season ticket holders have held their tickets for decades, and don’t care about making a profit as much as keeping scalpers away from the market.
