Every so often, red, white and blue has to trump Tar Heel blue. So for the next two weeks, I’m going to be rooting for a Dukie. Actually three Dukies. Painful but patriotic.
The USA (with Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski and former Dukies Kyrie Irving and Mason Plumlee) opens play in the World Championships on Saturday. I guess they’re calling it the World Cup now. I’ve always known it as the World Championships.
