Despite what they may tell you, few things could be worse than being a fan of the Duke Blue Devils—and you don't even have to be a fan of the North Carolina Tar Heels to feel that way.

I just happen to be one.

Before we get into the Duke bashing that is about to take place, I'd like to say that I have complete respect for the program and their fans. I had many Dukie friends growing up (sorry, the “Dook” thing is played out to me), and I continue to make more to this day.

As a matter of fact, my sister turned into a Duke fan during high school—and she was the one that got me into the Tar Heels. If it were the 1600s, I'd tell the villagers she was a witch.

But hey, it is what it is, and people are allowed to make their own decisions—albeit a bad one.

I wouldn't be surprised if more Duke fans read this than UNC, so I felt I should clear that up. I'm not picking a fight. We are just having fun here.

And Bleacher Report isn't picking on you either. There will be a counter article to this coming soon. All I ask is that both sides stay chill and just have fun with this. I know it will be hard, but I'm hoping we can keep it civilized.

As I always say, “Live, love and make fun of each other every chance you get.”


Disclaimer: The following is a completely biased and unadulterated generalization of the Duke basketball program and their fans. This is not real analysis of the quality or success of Duke's program. It is a rivalry article, that is meant to be extreme.
