Well, it’s been about 24 hours since I posed the question “Who will you root for in the Midwest Regional Final?” With over 7,000 votes (and counting), here’s what y’all said:
A few of you (well, nearly 200) left your opinions in the comments section as well. Here’s a smattering of what I considered to be the highlights:
IRAQ vs North Korea……really not sure who to root for.
I think you meant to post this on the CNN blog, TDOG.
I’d rather see Rick win and give our in state rivalry the obvious top spot in the nation. Plus I don’t mind throwing those dogs a bone. I like talking trash to my ‘Ville friends and they like to do the same. Fuel to the fire. I can see nothing but good things for KY if they win. Plus I would love to stomp their team next year after they win a championship and win another one of our own.
Personally myself, I’m hoping for an act of god to wipe out the gym. Probably not that bad but like a wormhole or something where both teams disappear never to be seen again. That’d be cool with me.
A wormhole is one of the more creative apocalyptic scenarios that has been suggested in the comments. That too, would be cool with me.
If you’re standing up to your neck in ______ and somebody throws a bucket of ______ at your face, do you duck? Some decisions can’t be made.
Wait, I need to know what you left out of the blanks. If you’re standing up to your neck in kittens and somebody throws a bucket of Cadbury eggs at your face, do you duck? Hell no! Open your mouth!
If you live in the city of Louisville, this question is a no-brainer. For one day (and one day only) I’m a Cameron Crazy.
If Louisville is Little Brother then that means they are still family. A true kentucky fan will never cheer for Duke. Show some class BBN, show all those Louisville fans what true sportsmanship is, go Cards!
“We are family… I got all my sisters and me…”
There is hate and there is hatred.
I hate Duke but I have a gut-gnawing hatred of Louisville.
Tomorrow, I’ll cheer for Duke.
Hate Duke more and they don’t need to get closer to us in NCs. However, they’re more likely to NOT win it all. Tough choice.
I will cheer for Duke. Did a test run last night during the Ducks game and had my mind “right” to cheer for the Cards. I was just going to suck it up and do it. You know; be a good Kentuckian, remember what Pitino did for us, Dieng is a sweet man, etc. My body just wouldn’t follow thru. Broke out in a cold sweat with the 1st attempt at “go Cards”. My mouth would not work. The more I tried, the more nauseated I got. Tried some Crown Royal with a malt chaser as an antidote. Didn’t work. I feel like such a failure and a bad person as well. Oh…..and I have a rash today.
Sammydog, I hope you’re feeling better. Please see a doctor if the rash persists. Keep us updated in graphic descriptions.
I would rather Duke win the next 5 NCAA championships that UL win tomorrow.
My abs have a mind of their own. However, I’m rooting against Duke the least today. So we’re on the same page there. PS Abs, I’m about to eat a lot of chocolate today, so try your best to hold it together. I don’t like looking bloated.
