Hi there! I'm Dave-El and this is my blog which I call I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You because calling it The World's Most Awesome Blog was a little too on the nose, don't you think?
So it's Sunday and time now for my weekly post on sports from a guy who doesn't know much about sports.
Here we go!
Mercer Bears 78
Duke Blue Devils 71
Duke? What the hell! Duke? Really?
OK, I'm sure Mercer is a nice school and all but seriously, every time I heard "Mercer", my brain kept inserting the word "virus". So this wasn't a flesh eating disease, just a dream destroying one. Now I had no delusions how far Duke would go this year in the NCAA tournament. Final Four? Possible but not likely. I figured maybe Sweet Sixteen which is not bad. But Duke, a #3 seed, gone as of their first game against a #14 seed named after a flesh eating virus?!
That's mean and I really need to stop saying that. Sorry, Mercer.
Seriously, Duke: What the hell?

Once again Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski shows he's a class act by visiting the Mercer (Virus. Dammit, stop that!) locker room to personally congratulate the Bears on their win. "If we got beaten, at least we got beaten by a hell of a basketball team." Classy move, Coach K!
After a Duke loss, Krzyzewski is usually quick to give credit to the winning team. No "They won because we sucked" but "They won because they played a great game."
Well, if Coach K can do it, so can I!
Congratulations on your NCAA win, Mercer!
Hey, I did it! I said Mercer and
As noted in one online sports report, "Duke may not have been a favorite to win the tournament, but it's Duke. The Blue Devils were a No. 3 seed in a loaded Midwest Region. If you can beat them, you can hang with anyone. You can also dance with anyone."
