ACC Basketball Tournament - Georgia Tech v Duke

This is pretty cool and as usual, Coach K has some funny things to say: he’s lighting the campus Menorah.

Our favorite quote here is probably (but not necessarily) this: “[The Maccabees] pulled off the biggest upset in the history of man. Bigger than UMBC over Virginia, Villanova over Georgetown, N.C. State over Houston, or Lehigh over Duke.”

Unless it’s this one: “Let’s make this year and this lighting of the menorah the first stage in an amazing amount of success that we will have in not only putting the five Maccabees together but maybe putting mankind together. That’s the challenge I will challenge you with here tonight as we celebrate the lighting of the menorah. And I hope I have the honor if somebody shows me what the hell I’m supposed to do.”
