Just got back from the park, did a brisk two miles wearing my vintage blue Duke T shirt. Got a couple of "Go, Duke!"s. Says Duke in big letters with a picture of the blue devil on it, kind of a lighter blue than most. Plan on wearing a Duke T shirt tomorrow, Saturday ... Sunday and Monday (clean one each day!). Hope all you fans are getting those Duke T's out!

My kids and I have been wearing Duke shirts every day this week. This morning my 6th grade son went to school in my "1991-1992 Back to Back Champions" shirt. He said he wanted to "rock it old school". Each day the principal seems shocked to see how vast our Duke wardrobes are . . .

Hopefully this isn't a moms-only thread...

I changed into a white Duke shirt at halftime of the Purdue game. I think we played a lot better afterwards. Right before the half of the Baylor, I changed into it again. The next play = Dawkins 3-pointer. We had a strong second half again. I'm bringing that shirt to Indy.

Right now, I'm wearing a black Duke t-shirt. Go Devils!

I pulled out my Duke trucker hat at halftime of the Baylor game to try to induce a second half rally. I bought the hat in San Antonio at the 2004 final four, but it was after Duke had already lost, so I don't think there's any bad mojo associated with it. I haven't decided on a garment strategy for Saturday yet.

I have lots of Duke blue and white outfits! Some of the local Wake folk and the more outspoken Carolina folk don't even notice... which is fine with me. I'm in my own royal blue world!

When I was in the grocery store today, I was quietly humming "Devil with the Blue Dress On". ;)

I wear a "You can talk the game but can you play the game?" referring to Michigan's Fab 4 every day - I sleep in them and I have several.

But I have to say that I just bought WVU-Duke final four shirts today. They were nondenominational.

My ring tone is currently set to our Duke Band's rendition of "Devil with a Blue Dress On"...FYI... :)

Also, I have been sporting the Duke apparel most of the week. I'm wearing my Coach K's 1000th game t-shirt right now. I'm planning on wearing Duke stuff the next few days for good luck.

Circa 1996 blue Nike Duke game shorts and a black "Duke University" tee that I got from the Duke apparel "vault" inside the K Center two summers ago, given to me by Mr. Kenneth King. Great guy. (Thought I'd plug that:))

I will be wearing my white Nike Duke shorts on Saturday, which I have been wearing for each game since the ACC quarters. Folks, you can thank me when the season is over.

I am seriously considering buying Duke socks.

I've worn the same gray "DUKE" shirt every game day since the 32-pt UNC game. I am a former baseball player, so I'm a pretty superstitious guy when it comes to stuff like this, so I will continue to wear that same shirt (unwashed) until we are hoisting that trophy, hopefully!

Had to go up to the church tonight to practice for the Easter Drama Sunday morning. (I am the sound technician at my church). I knew a couple of my youth guys who are huge unc fans would be there helping set up the stage they would surely sneak out to catch their boys in the JV tourney against Dayton.

So just for them I wore a black Duke T-Shirt with my black JJ Road Jersey over the T and my favorite Duke hat on. They were tortured!

Going with my white Duke Golf shirt for work tomorrow. Have not decided on Saturday yet. Most likely will be in my gray Duke T-Shirt for the big game with my black road uniform shorts.

Oh and still sticking with the Barney Fife Hex buster to protect Jon from shooting woes. I did it at the half of the Purdue game and Jon broke out in the 2nd half. Did it again Sunday against Baylor. Two times. Once after Jon missed a couple in the first half and then again at halftime. Jon was deadly afterwards both times. So I will most definately do it as many times as needed Saturday night!!

Go Duke!!

Flying back home to Seattle tomorrow from Denver. Will be wearing a final four shirt that I ordered from GoDuke Monday and had delivered to the hotel! On Saturday, I will be wearing the same jeans and t-shirt that I wore last game. Along with a Duke hat-but the hat is only on in the 2nd 1/2!

Crazy things us fans do!

Ummm, saw that headline on this string and thought I might have gone to the wrong type of chat site... Getting a little risque are we????


That aside, I too have some lucky garb that I like to wear during the NCAAT. Every game day I wear my dark-Blue nice DUKE (with Devil head on side) long-sleeve sweatshirt (could be kinda sweaty this weekend...). And always the classic dark-blue hat with the white D on the front (unfortunately not a popular hat around DC...looks too much like something Tony Romo might wear in Big-D.

Heck, I'm even sleeping in my Fuqua T until we win this thing! My wife just shakes her head....

Buyt if we make the Finals, I expect we'll have the whole extended family decked out in Duke garb.

I used to sleep in my "You can talk the game..." T-shirt too but it basically disintegrated and was replaced by a "I said no to Dean!" t-shirt that also disintegrated over time. It's good to sleep in Duke apparel and dream of winning championships!

Hopped over to campus and picked up the dark blue Final Four T with all 4 teams on it, I've rocked that once this week. Black Duke hat is constant. Other shirts this week include an '01 championship T and the el cheapo Duke Football T's they had at the bookstore this season. Tomorrow gametime will be my home Grant Hill jersey followed, hopefully, by the home Laettner on Monday night!

That is funny I have the retro blue and white Kings Hurley jersey and the purple and black one still.

I will be wearing the 2001 National Championships shirt under my Duke > UNC shirt. I have worn the Duke> shirt for all of the tournament games and it has done well. If we win the National Championship I have to retire the shirt because it is getting holes in it just from washing it.

Duke pep band rugby with GTHC shirt under it one game, and 2010 ACC champs shirt under it another game. There's good karma from both of those two for me, at least at games this year.

"Simple Math" is my favorite Duke t-shirt. I always wear it for the Carolina game.

I'm not trying to hi-jack this sexy, what are you wearing thread lol, but it doesn't seem to matter in my home,, what does matter is the DUKE, EXTRA HEAVY KUZA CUP I USE,, and the brand beer I have in it,, I won't mention the brand, but I didn't have it for G'town or Md and,, well,, you've seen the result.. Well stocked for this evening. No, I won't even mention the brand because it's not even my favorite, but we have a mission and goal here, and it won't be messed with over taste for at least two games.

Now, back to those sexy DUKE, GO DUKE, GTHC tees etc :D

GOOOOO DUKE

I have a new lucky shirt. It is a black t-shirt with Cameron Crazies on the front in blue letters outlined in white, and the Duke Basketball Logo on the back. I have a pair of Duke blue and white basketball shorts (revesible, solid blue on one side, b/w on other) that I wear during game time. I also have a new Duke BB rally cap, that I break out when needed. I have not worn either hat or shirt anywhere other than during the actual games, so I have not needed to wash the shirt which of course would change the luck of the shirt! :eek: I tried wearing a white Duke t-shirt with DUKE in navy letters across the front, but we started losing against Purdue when I had it on, so I changed into the black one. ;) Since then we have been on a roll....

p.s., I hid the t-shirt from my wife just to be sure she would not wash it, she is such a tarheel fan, she would do it out of spite.

I'm wearing a Duke basketball t-shirt and black road uniform shorts right here in the middle of Mountaineer country. All the staff in the restaurant this morning had on their WVU gear and were offering 15% off to anyone wearing the same. Needless to say I didn't get offered a discount.

Walking in the neighborhood today wearing my Duke T, got 4 "Go Dukes!" - which is a lot for my northern city - and then - walking towards me, there they were ... three young guys - two who were wearing MARYLAND T shirts. As we got closer to each other, our eyes locked on each others' T shirts and right there in public, they stopped ... pointed at me, and started to shout, "No, No!" and then started "Booing" at me! I just smiled and put up one finger (no, not the middle finger) to signify "number one!" Pretty funny! Getting booed in public by total strangers! Kinda liked it!

If I owned a t-shirt company, I would make an equal number of "UNC 2010 NIT Runner-up" shirts as I would (HOPEFULLY!!) "Duke 2010 National Championship" shirts, sell them side-by-side, and I'd make enough profit to send my kids to, uhm, Duke!!

A lady at Costco on Saturday saw my Duke T-shirt and stopped me to ask if I thought Duke was going to win Saturday night. I told her I was totally confident and that it wasn't even going to be close. She got a big smile on her face, but not as big as the smile on my face later that night when I realized I was actually right! :)

In an effort to relieve some game day jitters (I know ... it's impossible!), thought it might be fun to know what everyone is wearing/doing/ drinking today. Include any superstitious rituals!

As for me, I am...

Literally bleeding blue...

New Duke T shirt on and it's literally turning my skin blue. But it feels almost like a religious sign, spiritual, so don't try to tell me it's just a cheap dye job on the T shirt. For my team - today, I will walk around with blue skin.

9 Hours to blast off!:)

I picked up some Blue Moon Rising Moon this morning. I have no idea if it's a halfway decent beer, but I liked the symbolism. I'm wearing the same T-shirt and hat I wear for every game and since my kids are too young to stay up for the game, they'll be sleeping in their Duke gear.

Go Duke!

Yesterday, since it was Easter, I wore my pink Duke tee and Duke basketball shorts. Today, tees not really an option, but I am wearing a Duke pendant that I dug up at my parents' house recently, one I've had since 2nd grade. I will most likely pull on some Duke garb when I get home to watch the game. HOPEFULLY, I will say screw the dress code tomorrow and wear something brazenly Duke, while making a quick zip onto campus to buy yet another championship tee!

I went to the store this morning, and while I was in the checkout line, an older gentleman in probably his 70's looked over at me and said "Good luck tonight, I sincerely mean that. I'm pulling for you". I told him thank you very much for the thoughts.
I had one of my Duke shirts on, he was wearing a unc ball cap. That exchange has pretty much made me happy all morning.
