UNC North Carolina is playing in the NCAA Men's Basketball Champ Game tonight against Villanova. If you follow college basketball at all, you are well aware of this event. If you live anywhere in North Carolina, from Murphy to Manteo, you will likely be watching the game tonight. Even those who are Duke, Wake Forest, and NC State fans will likely put aside their differences for a night to cheer on the ACC team from Chapel Hill. From the humblest of apartments to the most elegant of homes Carolina blue is a pretty common color in Greensboro these days.
The above house is located on Sunset Drive in Old Irving Park, across from the Greensboro Country Club. They have a larger-than-life, Rameses the Ram, on their front lawn making their UNC allegiance visible from the street as well as the golf course across the street. Just north of downtown and on the western edge of Elm Street, Irving Park is one of Greensboro's wealthiest and most established neighborhoods- thriving since early in the last century. We're betting, at many of those tree-lined estates, there will be some fabulous "Go Heels" parties tonight. The game doesn't start until almost 9:30 p.m. so, regardless of outcome, there will be some tired children at school and adults dragging their heels at work tomorrow.
Unless Villanova is your team, wish us luck!
