It's The Most Wonderful Time....

OF THE YEAR! Why? No, not because Christmas is finally within sight (although that does make me giddy, because I absolutely love Christmas). It's the most wonderful time of the year, because it's time for THIS:

Yep, college basketball season has officially begun.  And my Tar Heels have kicked if off right this week by beating Florida International on Monday and NC Central last night.  (For those of you who don't follow college basketball (are you crazy?), that's UNC's coach, Roy Williams.  Love that man.

I am a die hard, down and dirty Carolina basketball fan.  I've been known to throw couch pillows at innocent nutcrackers by the fireplace when we lose in triple overtime.  (Yes, this actually happened once when I was home for Christmas in college.  My parents were a little taken aback.)

I was lucky enough to be a student at UNC when the Tar Heels won the national championship in 2005.  It was so much fun to be a part of that.  I can still remember watching the last seconds of the game tick down (it was a close one), and then we popped some Andre and ran up to Franklin Street where we became a part of this crowd:

And saw people jumping through bonfires in the street...

 It was such a fun night and one of my favorite college memories.  What about you?  Any favorite memories from when you were in school?
