Spend a couple minutes with this video and you'll have an accurate picture of how I'm feeling right now. Except place the word "Baxter" with "Carolina, God's favorite team," and "the bad man" with "Austin Rivers".
I'm going to do the only thing I know how to do in this situation, which is to talk about Christmas. Here are some super happy present-opening pictures that take me back to a time when this tragic day was a month and a half away.
Look at those lovely Carolina skies.
Update: A lady I don't even know just called my office phone, and literally all I could hear on the other end was "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH SCREAMING SCREAMING AHHHHHHH!!!" I thought, "Surely, this woman is not elated about what I think she's elated about." When she finally realized I had answered her call she said, "Oh sorry, we're just really excited about Duke."
I calmly said, "Well, I went to Carolina, so I'm not super happy about it." She clearly didn't attend either school, because she said, "Oh, well you have to admit that last shot was nice." Really? I do? Over my dead body. So, I just told her we didn't have to talk about it. And then she asked a favor.
I hope she enjoys the 90 degree temperature in her office today.
