UNC – For the Love of the Game

It looks like the Tar Heels will lead us to another NCAA Championship tonight. I say we because I proudly graduated with my Masters from Chapel Hill in 1998.

Believe it or not, my primary motivation for going to UNC was the basketball team. Growing up in Chicago idolizing Michael Jordan and having graduated from a Div III school without any major sports to rally behind at the time (sorry, Emory), I knew that if I was going to be in school another two years, it would have to MJ’s alma mater.

Not that I would endorse this form of school selection today, but at the time I was really only going on for an advanced degree because it was expected of me and I was the ultimate people pleaser and achievement junkie. Of course, it didn’t hurt that it had the #2 Communications in the nation and I got a scholarship, but really, it was about the hoops and the Carolina Blue. Glad they’re doing their thing tonight!
