Tar! Heels! Tar! Heels!
Whatever the perception out there about women and sports may or may not be true but at UNC basketball = life. Before I came to UNC I cannot say when I watched an entire basketball game. But, being at UNC has changed all that. There is this sports culture that I have never experienced before.
Previously, I did not particularly like sports at all. The only sports game I watched was the super bowl and that only for the commercials. But over the past year I have built up a love for UNC sports.
It all started when I was walking out of ram’s head dining hall and I saw the football stadium covered in a sea of Carolina blue. Everyone was shouting “TAR HEELS” with one thought in mind: WIN! From then on, I was a Tarheel.
In conclusion, I don’t care much for sports and I do not know 90% of the teams in the NCAA brackets but I love UNC basketball. I don’t find myself watching any other basketball games or any games that is with kind of heart and spirit as UNC basketball games.
And, in time for the elite eight, I want to offer you a recipe for a dip that never misses; Hummus.

-Add one can of chick peas/garbanzo beans

-Add water according to the preferred texture
