April 7, 2009

UNC won the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship last night over the Michigan State Spartans 89-72.  It was a complete blowout.  I figured UNC was apt to win decisively, but this wasn’t even entertaining!  The coolest part was when Magic and Larry Bird came out to mark the 30th Anniversary of their incredible Championship game back in the [...]
