I admit it. I have only been a fan of Carolina Basketball for a few years.Yeah, I know that two major characters in Beckoning Light have played or are going to play for the Tar Heels, but my time as a fan is embarrassing small. Actually, my time as a fan of college basketball has been short. I only went to a handful of games while in college and grad school but then something happened—I moved to the triangle of North Carolina. I am convinced that it is impossible not to become a fan of the game when you live here, it’s even hard to go to the store during basketball season without someone asking what team you root for. Eventually I got pulled in, even with Carolina failing to make the tournament the first year we were here. Sometimes the place we live manages to change us—it becomes part of the fabric of who we are and once that happens it’s impossible to turn back. So yes, I’m a new fan of the sport, but really who cares, all that really matters is that when the game starts I’ll be yelling Go Tar Heels!
Tell me about your favorite team.
