At least I saw it...once.

I Can Not Believe How Much Dino Gaudio Reminds Me Of Jimmy V...
On Wednesday, January 21st, 2009, The Lifeguard took a trip to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and was able to see the then-Number One Wake Forest Demon Deacons struggle with a Virginia Tech Hokies team that played out of their heads for forty minutes.

Sadly, Wake lost to the Hokies--a team that looked like five pumpkins (and which has a castrated turkey as a mascot)--by a score of 78-71. And though Jeff Teague banged in 23 points, the Demon Deacons just could not overcome the fired-up Hokies, the near-silent alumni, the poor shooting (43.1% to Tech's 50.0%), and uneven officiating (Wake didn't even go to the charity stripe in the first half).

But, I got to see a top-ranked Wake Forest squad play, live, for the first time in my life, so I'll take it.

Now, if Gaudio can do like Jimmy V and win the NCAA Championship...
