Tar Heels Beat the Blue Devils, but Duke has the Last Laugh

Let’s face it. The Duke Men’s Basketball team suffered quite the defeat against UNC last night. It was not a good day to be a Blue Devil or a Blue Devil fan. But a recent Twitter feed can at least ease a little bit of our pain: at least we understand the difference between “their” and “they’re.” A Twitter exchange between the UNC and Duke Student Governments highlights the importance of knowing your homonyms. A mistake over a simple homonym looks bad no matter how you cut it. Such an error certainly makes UNC’s attempt to mock Duke a complete failure. Yes, the Tar Heels won, but at least the Blue Devils can still have a little bit of satisfaction! Go Duke!
