Just wondering what sorts of interesting places you've proclaimed your Duke love!
Every year a Duke santa hat tops our Christmas tree... however, the best so far has been my wifes Duke garter she wore for our wedding
How about all of you?
I have a Duke Christmas tree with blue lights, 2 strings of basketball-shaped lights, and various Duke ornaments. I used to put all of those ornaments on my big tree, but a few years ago, I decided to buy another tree and make it a Duke-only tree.
I also wore one of those Duke garters when I got married.
If it's got Duke on it, I probably have it--flags, stickers, clothing, notepads, art work, charms on my charm bracelet, earrings, bicycle license plate, car license plate, e-mail address. I <3 Duke!
I have a Duke basketball lapel pin on my white coat so that my patients know where my loyalties are. I also have a Duke wrist watch, license plates, etc . . .

My daughter's license plate holder is "Duke Alum" and her license plate is DUKE MMI (2001). We have two signed BBs from the 2001 team.
I have a Duke "Silly Slammer" which says "...seeee ya", and a blue devil rubber duckie -- which I recently (and reluctantly) gave to my 5 month-old granddaughter to play with in the bathtub. But...she has to give it back to me ASAP.
I had a fabulous Duke Blue Devil cake made for Kent & Alex's (both class '01) wedding rehearsal dinner. Very cool. I'm thinkin' I should send a pic to DBR.
And, of course, the number of T-shirts, visors, caps, etc. are numerous. Even here in SoCal, I'm amazed and excited about all the Duke stuff I encounter on a daily basis.
I've represented with my Duke Flag in three cities on the West Coast. I also sport the Duke Calendar in my office. I even managed to get a guy in my office interested in Duke. It's kinda tough to get an office full of software developers, that grew up in San Diego, to even acknowledge college basketball exists.
My ditz gene is over-expressing itself again. How could I forget the most awesome Duke thing I have: My Duke blue, checker board striped Mini Cooper with a front Duke license plate in a Duke alumni plate holder. One of my Tar Heel co-workers said "your Duke mobile looks good," to which I responded, "it kills you to say that, doesn't it?" Yep, my Fiona Tauiliili is one good looking car! I couldn't resist the name : )
Mine has to be my NC license plate - GTHC. I've had it for 20+ years now and it's still fun to enrage UNC fans and thrill ABC fans with it!!!
Back of The Saab for 24/7 support. If I see a Heel car up ahead, I hit the Turbo baby and smoke 'em.
locations: t-shirts in Japan, Jekyll Island, Georgia, Key West, Florida, DisneyWorld, many North and South Carolina beaches, Indiana, California, Texas.
Sold my Hobie Cat 16 foot a couple years ago when I got into kiteboarding, but I had several Duke stickers on the mast!
My (former) damned housekeeper LOST my favorite Duke cat-in-the-hat telescoping hat and I used to cut the grass in that thing to get the grins and giggles in the 'hood.
