First of all, I'm a hard core fan of Virginia Cavaliers. Always had, has and will be.
But when I was in high school, I admitted that I had a little crush on Christian Laettner. Back in his high school days in the suburbs of Buffalo, New York - he was recruited by every Division I school. But he narrowed down to 3: Duke, North Carolina & Virginia.
He chose Duke and led Duke to four Final Four appearances including the National Champions. He is famous for hitting the winning basket at the buzzer to beat Kentucky, 104-103 in overtime.
He will be featured on ESPN's show named 30 for 30, "I Hate Christian Laettner". I'm not sure if I plan to watch that episode because I will watch The Walking Dead.
However, I stumbled upon this post by a fan of Virginia Cavaliers on a message board whom he talked about his sons & his encounter with Christian Laettner at a local gas station in Durham, NC. Read what he has to say about Christian. Very classy.
Christian, you are an idiot.
