So today I was reliving the Maryland-Duke rivalry a bit. Watching highlights, etc. The usual. I stumble myself onto the Blue vs Blue blog and I guess they're postgame recap of the game in CP. They once again (or the person writing the piece) said we aren't their rival. They said we are never getting respect, we care about the rivalry and they don't. They then go onto say we are "mindless, sophomoric, bottle and crude insult hurling, unimaginative vulgarians with no respect for the game, the players, the coaches (including their own, by-the by; Mark Turgeon's son had to leave the Comcast center because fans were being so abusive to his dad during the UVA game), or public property. In short (if I may paint with a broad brush here) they are the apotheosis of what it means to be bad fans.
I mean really? It's hilarious. This is old news but it brought myself to a realization. I hate Duke for a lot of reasons. I hate them becuase they win. I hate them becuase they flop, they're preppy, they're arrogant. I mainly hate Duke though for the fans belief that they are something else. They have this special entitlement factor. I mean I have never seen such stupid bull crap ever posted in my life. I mean, bull crap. Like it's hilarious. I have never seen Ben B, Pete, Dave, or Ben G ever post something like that. This guy is an editor. It's not a fanpost. He's attacked us without merit and this man is supposed to have some sort of journalistic talent and integrity. I don't know if anybody cares but it was a way for me to show just how much Duke fans can be just absolutely ignorant and utterly stupid people. It just contributes to the reasons I downright despise the Blue Devils.
