Congratulations to UNC
With UNC in the Final Four, I couldn't help but watch their last two games -- but I'm not a basketball fan, which makes me a bit of an odd duck in this part of the world (the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area, known as the "Triangle"). Basketball may not have been invented here, but this has to be where the soul of college basketball resides these days. Within a 15-mile radius, we have three teams with great basketball histories -- UNC, Duke, and North Carolina State. In fact, all three made the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament this year. When you think that the Triangle has a population of about 1.2 million -- about 0.4 percent of the US as a whole -- that's fairly amazing.
