I grew up knowing two truths: Chapel Hill was the most amazing place on Earth, and there was nothing worse than being a Duke fan. I’m 29 years old now, and those two truths have stuck with me my entire life. I hate Duke University and everyone who associates with it. That blue is hideous. I’ve grown to roll my eyes at New Jersey license plates in the Triangle, because I know exactly why they are here.
Some may say hating a bunch of kids who did nothing other than pick the wrong school to play basketball for isn’t healthy, but I disagree. It reminds us we’re alive. What is the point of anything if we can’t hate everything that school and fans of that school stand for? They can all go straight to hell.
If you’re not traveling into enemy territory for tonight’s game, here’s all you need to know about how to watch or listen to the Tar Heels take on the Blue Devils.
