When I was in school, I always dreamed of attending the ACC tourney. At the time, we often watched the first round (on Friday) games in class, and if our class didn't have a television, we had a single ear bud run through the sleeve of our shirt from a transistor radio and would lean on the hand where the ear bud was located so we could hear the games.
Later, in college, I dreamt of one day covering the tourney, but as a writer.
Starting today, this bucket list item is being checked off, and I am seeing the action straight from the baseline as I cover the games throughout the week. Here are some shots from day 1's action.
