Duke Basketball

The men’s game against UNC in Cameron was really exciting. My dad came down for the game and we had a fun time. Unfortunately Duke lost, but the game was close the whole way. The following day the #1 ranked women’s team beat #2 ranked UNC at Carolina. Each with records of 24-0, this was a great match.

Unfortunately, the men’s UNC loss was just one in our current 4 game loosing streak. For the first time since 1996, the team is not in the top 25. Dare I say, we’ve become a bubble team? If we don’t start winning we’ll be watching the NCAA tournament on television.



I saw the movie Dreamgirls. It was ok, but nothing great. Eddie Murphy did a good job. They had a reference to the Jackson 5 which I thought was great.

Janelle hosted a game night. It was fun. I didn’t get a chance to play Scene It. “Apples to Apples” was a good one. Cranium I had played before. Scrabble went on. I made chocolate chip cookies.

Zach, Alyssa, Matt, and Paul came over to watch the game. I made chicken parmigiana whose leftovers have formed the basis for lunches a couple two days. I also made brownies from the Taunton cookbook I bought at Costco.

Tom and Vito had a potluck this weekend. Good call.
