Last night, from the comfort of my couch, I watched my Blue Devils win their fourth national championship. Nineteen years ago, I was there, in Indianapolis, a Duke freshman, watching the first championship win in person.
Back then, Duke was the underdog, paired up against the mighty UNLV in the semi-finals. This time, it was Duke that was the favorite, the “big dog,” going into the Final Four. I have nothing against Butler [they have an awfully cute mascot!], but I’m very glad they didn’t do as the Devils did back in 1991 and pull off the upset.
So is my big dog, Belle.
