My dad is friends with Nolan Smith's mother so we went up to the Duke-MD game yesterday and sat behind the bench with the parents.

It was a good game to be at as Duke won 77-56. 

Now on to the great Duke chants. There was "Sweat, Gary, Sweat."

A good one was the Crazies pointing to the Duke bench and saying "Inspiration" and then pointing to the Maryland bench and saying "Perspiration."

Some crazies held up a sign that said, "Dear Mr and Mrs Scheyer, thank you for the coffee and donuts, and of course for Jon."

There were Crazies with their bodies painted to spell out Adios Greivis. 

Brian Zoubek, with 16 points and 17 rebounds, had to Crazies going well, crazy. 

Coach K started jumping up and down a couple times.

At halftime, they announced all the people that were there including JJ Redick, Greg Paulus, Mark Alarie, Ricky Price, and more. 

After the game my dad and I went to the room where the players come out and talked to Greg Paulus. He was very genuine.

Coach K came out and shook are hands and we got to talk to the other players.
