In the battle of evil vs. evil….
how are you supposed to choose sides?
Is the evil closest to home the obvious choice?
Yes, Louisville hails from my home state, but they are Kentucky’s bitter rival — one that we know all too well.
That’s what makes a Louisville win particularly repugnant. We’ll never hear the end of it — from the local media and from ‘friends’ who wear Cardinal red.
So then — is the evil from a dread rival the obvious choice?
I’ve hated Duke as long as I can remember. Christian Laettner’s last-second shot is like nails on a chalkboard, and yet every March, Kentucky fans are forced to re-live it again and again.
An NCAA tourney where Duke loses is a good tourney…but do I want them to lose to Louisville en route to a Cards championship?
I gotta say — the two teams imploding at game’s end is about the only outcome that works for me.
