In the time of Blue Devils: A Short Story

March 24, 2014

This story was not written by me, but by one Aisander Duda ,who used to post here more often, and whose Duke fandom I am constantly trying to unravel, analyze, and, hopefully, to one day understand:




In the time of Blue Devils: A Short Story.

9:30 a.m. Friday, March 21st - Arrives in the office.
10:00 a.m. - Frantically works on clearing all to-do list items before noon.
12:13 p.m. - Downloads CBS's NCAA March Madness App.
12:14 p.m. - Eagerly fires up CBS's NCAA March Madness App.

12:21 p.m. - Advertisement appears featuring Christian Laettner's shot over Kentucky in 1992 NCAA Tournament.
12:22 p.m. - Remember Christian Laettner fondly.
12:24 p.m. - Have deep, introspective moment about what it means about a person's moral and ethical character to think of Christian Laettner fondly.
12:34 p.m. - To this point in the game, they're shooting 27% from beyond the 3-point arc.  Shit.
12:40 p.m. - Fire up Grant Hill screensaver on work laptop in an attempt to even karmic balance.
12:54 p.m. - Work phone rings. Quiet sigh, "C'mon man."
1:37 p.m. - Advertisement appears featuring video of J.J. Redick in the NCAA Tournament.
1:38 p.m. - Contemplate whether advertisers are purposefully poisoning the well for Duke fans with these ads.
1:43 p.m. - Dick Vitale mentions Greg Paulus.  Then Coach K and the Olymics. Yep, well poisoned.
1:50 p.m. - Weak charge attempted by Duke player.  Entire U.S. population simultaneously harrumphs. 
2:00 p.m. - "WTF"
2:13 p.m. - Closes CBS's NCAA March Madness App.
2:14 p.m. - Reopens App
2:17 p.m. - That Laettner ad again. "SERIOUSLY?"
2:31 p.m. - Erases CBS's NCAA March Madness App.
2:32 p.m. - Googles "craps the bed" memes.
2:34 p.m. - UNC fan friends start texting - no response given.
2:35 p.m. - NC State fan friends start texting - pastes "crap the bed" memes in response.
2:36 p.m. - Google reaction gifs of Mark Gottfried. Chuckles.
2:37 p.m. - Feel bad for NC State fans.
2:38 p.m. - Log on to Jimmy V Foundation webpage.
2:40 p.m. - Dick Vitale video testimony watched.  
2:41 p.m. - Contemplate why Dick Vitale is omnipresent in college basketball. Further realize Duke well is thermonuclear. 
2:42 p.m. - Donate to V Foundation anyway.
2:43 p.m. - Opens Facebook seeking distraction. WRONG.
2:44 p.m. - Opens internet seeking distraction. WRONGER.
2:45 p.m. - Turns on local radio seeking distraction. WRONGEST.
2:47 p.m. - Grant Hill's smiling face on screensaver might be making this worse.
3:00 p.m. - Back to work. Heavy sighs. Perhaps UNC, too, will lose.

Fin
