Memorable Moments


Duke goes down in the first round and keeps with the NCAA tradition curse.  We have seen them four times and they have never made it out of the the weekend.

Mr. Toads Wild ride becomes a topic of discusion during Johns expiditious driving.

More College sports than any other trip.  At UNC we attended a lacross game (vs #1 Maryland) and a baseball game (vs Georgia Tech).  Then at Duke we attended a Tennis tournament (vs Virgina).
