There are some teams that I enjoy watching lose almost as much as I enjoy watching my teams win. Duke is one of those teams. Duke lost 78-71 to Mercer this morning in the first game of the day. It was a good way to start the day. I have wished bad tidings on the Blue Devils since the days of Bobby Hurley and Christian Laettner.
I got the same treat yesterday morning in the first game of the day when Ohio St. was upset by Dayton. The Buckeyes loss means that I finally don’t have to watch that pesky little Aaron Craft anymore. I swear that guy had seven years of eligibly at Ohio St.
Yes, watching Duke and Ohio St. almost brought me as much joy as watching Michigan and Gonzaga win their first round games. Why such disdain for these two teams? There really isn’t a logical answer. But really is there anything logical about being a sports fan? Remember, fan is short for fanatic. Logic has nothing to do with it.
