Congratulations to UNC

I just wanted to say congratulations to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill men's basketball team, who won the national championship game last night.

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.
