What Saturday's Game Means, And What It Doesn't
Sat Mar 8, 2008
And so it is this weekend, on the eve before Duke and UNC’s men’s basketball teams square off on the hardwood, that a loss so jarring and so tragic forces us to remember what Saturday’s game means, and what it does not. The game, the zenith of a year’s worth of effort and anticipation, is but the focal point of a rivalry pitting two school communities, two fan-bases against one another. It brings joy and pride; elation and rage; anxiety and relief. The life of Eve Marie Carson meant much more.
