In Memory of Spero Peratino (Duke vs. Maryland)

Duke is playing at Maryland tonight.  Every year for the past 10 years or so, my friend Spero and I would trash talk in the days leading up to the game.  It was our way of staying in touch and catching up.

Regular readers of my blog know that Spero passed away last year, unexpectedly.  As I thought about the game today, I could hear Spero telling me how his boys were going to pull one out tonight.

I still won’t be rooting for Maryland, but I will be thinking about Spero.
