Duke Fan Stan

So, my boy Nick's brother, Peter, has put out his newest anti-Duke screed (above), and true to his nature, it's clever, it's catchy, and it's homophobic. Although there's some self-awareness here--really, why are hordes of Carolina and Maryland fans so consumed with Duke rage that they boost the ratings for games in which Duke plays unrelated opponents, thus ensuring that Duke's absurd broadcast dominance continues and little old me, out in the godless Bay Area can watch 15 to 20 games a year, no problem? Anyway, I know I'm just a "douchebag faggot who never got laid in college" as one Carolina fan put it to me at a sports bar a couple of years ago, but I support my team, and I support all ACC teams when they're not playing my team, and I think gays are people too, and I like a lot of mainstream hip hop, but I give none of its homophobic luminaries a free pass. On the eve of the tournament, can I say this: Go Carolina, go Miami, and go Duke.

i did a bracket! consistent with this year's theme of preppy douchebags achieving great success, i have duke against georgetown in the finals. AY-OH! (sorry, stanford)

I suck because I don't go to your stadium and throw beer bottles at you? Or because I don't need to boost my own sense of masculinity by calling you gay? Or because I like perimeter-oriented basketball?

As for Duke vs. Georgetown (my first love) in the finals, I'd die. I'd die right here in my khakis and my boating shoes.

Arre, baba... I was just referring to last year's song, the one with that brilliant line: "White players everywhere, they awkward when they dunk."

On another note: didn't Common work for redemption in that song, "Between, Me, You and Liberation"? Kind of a lame tale he spins, though.

No, I know that's the reference. But from the comment alone, it's hard to tell you're not referring to the substance of the post. I don't care about general Duke-hating. See response to hi zizzle's comment.
