    I had to have a VERY long conversation with someone who hates Duke before I could get them to admit that it's not actually about Duke, it's about Duke fans, and the way Duke college ball is covered in the media. I was never exposed to all that weirdness because my reasons for being a Duke fan are exclusively familial -- I'm not someone who became a Duke fan for reasons unrelated to university association.

    Edit: Whoa, your post got long quickly. Ni is weird. No idea what you're doing, but have fun with it.
    I didn't realize how strongly I felt about Duke basketball until I went out with this guy one time who went there undergrad and told me how big of a fan he was, and I started to kind of hate him a bit.

    My GF rowed crew for Duke and you have never seen a crazier fan.

    Luckily Duke is a basketball school in the ACC and as such don't come up against my Gators in football too much.

    I am a slight bit curious why I think that the stereotypes of ESFJ's are so funny more than any other type.

    Ok ok I half lied: I thought INTJ stereotypes were pretty funny as well. Some people thought because I laughed so hard at them I might have been an INTJ. You got to love people's reasoning.
    If you make decisions based upon people's reactions or judgments then you make really boring choices.

    The more people love you, the more there's going to be people that hate you.

    I'm crazy and I don't pretend to be anything else.

    I'm a Hoya. What I feel about Duke is engrained into a place far deeper than my rational mind could ever hope to reach.

    That said, I thought the 30x30 on Christian Laettner was fascinating, or at least gave me some perspective on why I feel the way I do. If your SO is a Duke fan, then it's something I'd definitely recommend.

    Duke/Georgetown games were always very conflicting for me...

    It all seems the same to me, although I'm curious about whether these examples are a departure from the artist's usual style. It doesn't seem like they would be.

    I still prefer the experiment with the spider webs.

    Duke basketball games were pretty much the only sports games I had a stake in, growing up. My paternal aunt met her husband when they were grad students at Duke. No one in my hometown cared about east coast college basketball so I never felt one way or another about being a Duke fan. But when I moved to the east coast and became surrounded by Georgetown fans (and other east coast sports team fans) who hated Duke...

    You've probably seen this already, but just in case:
