I forgot that I even wrote this last Monday
I was on the flight from RDU to Charlotte with literally the entire Duke track-and-field team. Two of them sat on the same row as me, but it was way too early for me to want to start a conversation, though I considered pulling out my* copy of What The University of North Carolina Meant to Me and seeing what response I got.
So I just checked the results and, apparently, Duke choked. This was a qualifier for the NCAA National Championships, and only the women's team got a bid; the men's team lost out, and no player from either team moved on to the individual championships. I'd like to think that was, in some small way, at least partially my doing.
*Technically Di-Phi's. Whatever.
