I’m not a violent guy. It’s hard to be a violent pacifist, after all. With that in mind, let it be known loud and clear that I wish Duke’s basketball time would lose by 1000 points every time they set foot on the court. I hate them. And not in the fun, sports-rivalry, kind of way. They bring out a visceral disgust with nearly everything I think is wrong with the world every time I see them. They’re not all spoiled rich kids, but many of them are; they’re not all displaying the arrogance that comes from wealth and privilege, but most of them are. Their coach has made a career out of whining his way into getting every call he can to do his way (which, certainly, is his right, but that doesn’t make it any less annoying).
Nothing sports-related would make me happier than their demise. It would be especially funny to discover that Coach K, for all his Spitzer-esque self-righteousness, had been cheating all along. That’s not going to happen, I’m sure, but a guy can dream, right?
Hmm. Don’t feel as good as I’d hoped from that cathartic moment…
