It is 24 Hours Away from one MY MAJOR BUCKET LIST MOMENTS being complete. DUKE VS. NORTH CAROLINA from “The Craziest Environment in College Basketball History”: the venerable Cameron Indoor Stadium. Red Sox-Yankees is arguably the Greatest Rivalry in Pro Sports History, but they play at least 19 times during the course of a regular season. Yeah…19 Times. The Blue Devils & Heels meet twice in the regular season with the looming possibility of a third time in the ACC Tournament; and Maybe even a Fourth time in the NCAA Tournament in the Elite Eight, Final Four, or National Championship.

Whether you live in Missoula, Montana; Grand Forks, North Dakota; or Bangor, Maine; you will be mesmerized by the pageantry, hostility, & INSANITY that is Duke-North Carolina. If you don’t even care for College Basketball until Selection Sunday gives the brackets for your office tournament pool…If you are going to ONLY watch ONE game a season, it must be Duke-North Carolina. If you could only watch one Mafia Movie, it would be The Godfather. This is the “EPICENTER of College Basketball”.

I have NO idea what I am about to experience in the next 24 hours. I have been told by Taylor Zarzour a.k.a. MY Partner In Crime & Co-Host on “The Drive” on 610 “THE FAN” (WFNZ) in Charlotte 3-7 P.M. (M-F) that this will be a quote “RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE”. I’ve had a few religious experiences in my lifetime, but something in my gut tells me that they will pale in comparison to DUKE-UNC at Cameron Indoor. Come about 9 o’clock (Eastern Standard Time) Tomorrow Night, I probably will be feeling & uttering : “HALLELUIAH, It’s DUKE-UNC & There’s NO Place I’d Rather Be!!! LET MY RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE BEGIN!”
