I receive a lot of emails to the effect that I should write fewer articles about the cruise industry’s latest shenanigans and more about “personal stuff.”
O.K. – always happy to oblige.
Tonight I went with the boys to the University of Miami to watch the UM play Wake Forest – ACC basketball big time. Have you ever heard of ACC basketball? If not, please turn your computer off and go to bed.
I watched my first ACC basketball game in 1976 in my freshman year at Duke. Duke was playing North Carolina State. Duke won by a point. Unbelievable game. You have not seen basketball until you stand in the student section at Cameron Indoor stadium.
Jim Spanarkel & Mike Gminski of Duke over superstar Kenny Carr of N.C. State in an nail biter. 79 -78 Duke by one.
33 years later that game is more real and in your face than any game I recall.
But tonight’s game was no sleeper. Wake had the last shot but its superstar guard – Ishmael Smith – missed what would have been a game winner with a few seconds left.
My kids had a good time, I think. We ate some hot dogs, M&M’s & popcorn.
Went by Cold Stone for ice cream on the way home. Boy do I feel healthy.
A nice evening.
But it sure as hell is not Duke basketball in Cameron Indoor Stadium . . .
