Congressman Really Hates Duke Hoops
March 25, 2012 by staff
Congressman Really Hates Duke Hoops, U.S. Rep. Brad Miller, who represents North Carolina’s 13th district in the U.S. House of Representatives, is done being polite or impartial about the college basketball allegiances in his state.
After all, he’s not seeking reelection. So when contacted by the Associated Press, Miller, a North Carolina fan, pulled no punches when it came to rival Duke.
“I have said very publicly that if Duke was playing against the Taliban,” Miller said very publicly again, “then I’d have to pull for the Taliban.” Yeah, good thing he’s not seeking reelection because I don’t see that happening.
Pulling for the Taliban in anything – even a game against Duke – a good way to get Homeland Security knocking on your door. Not to mention draw the ire of all Duke-loving constituents.
As for NC State, Miller said he has no problem cheering for the Wolfpack as long as they’re not playing the Tar Heels.
