I stayed in Chapel Hill after Saturday night's game and yesterday morning, I went and walked around campus and town for a while before I drove home. I'll be heading back over there after work today (and this day is dragging!). Thanks everyone for all the well wishes for my Heels!
Here are a few photos I took yesterday. The UNC- Chapel Hill campus is so beautiful, especially in spring.
Lots of Hoopla downtown on Franklin Street
There's a building downtown with all these gargoyles on the roof, flying the Tar Heel flag
Kathy (Trek Capri) asked to see my lucky pompom, so here it is! It is doing a fine job working its magic so far. :)
Kathy, this is for you too. I saw several of these "Vote Anoop" posters hanging around town yesterday!
So I'm pretty excited and a little bit nervous. I'm not crazy about the fact that Michigan St. has the home court advantage, with the championship game being played in Detroit, but the Tar Heel players don't seem that concerned about it. Lawson said, "we play pretty good on the road" and they do.
We played Michigan St in December and beat them by 35 points but their best player was hurt and didn't play, so tonight's game should be closer than that.
Eight hours and 21 minutes til tip-off.
