Glenn Clark’s Low Blow Commentary

October 16, 2009 |

Yesterday on the morning show Glenn Clark did a commentary on rooting for one college in all sports not just one particular sport. I agree with most of what he said. You shouldn’t be a Duke basketball and a USC football fan. Here is the part I have a problem with. I didn’t attend a 4 year college so I don’t have an alma mater to root for.

I have lived in Annapolis for 26 years so Navy is my team I root for in every sport. However when I was a little kid I played basketball in the neighborhood and on a couple of teams. By no means was I or am I good.

When I watched college basketball I liked to Quint Synder, Bobby Hurley, and Chris Corchiani, and Doug Wojick play among others because they were caucasian guards and that’s who I tried to model my terrible game after. As a result I became a Duke basketball fan. I have been a fan since the mid 1980’s. I have  not and will not change teams. By the way the Terps have a more recent championship than Duke does. I don’t say “we” when I refer to Duke because I didn’t go to school there. 

That doesn’t mean I can’t root for them as long as I stick with them and don’t change teams every other year.
