From the March 2016 Our State Magazine (North Carolina) "March Madness.
Continued from April 5th.
OK, we've had the basketball brackets, the Album Madness brackets and the Big Tap! brackets. Now we have the Our State Great Eight. I have already written about other brackets earlier this week. This will go into more detail on fight of the "Key" brackets about the state.
BASKETBALLIN' vs. RACIN' (ACC vs. NASCAR)
Hard to say which organization known by its initials wins here: NASCAR or ACC. This is the state where Michael Jordan, Dean Smith and Coach K got famous, but North Carolina also claims the Earnhardts and Pettys. The winner depends upon whether you prefer passing in the free-throw lane or the fast lane.
SWEET TEA vs. SWEET POTATOES
Sweet tea is top seed in our bracket and should have no problem defeating sweet potatoes, which, despite being our state vegetable (I didn't know that, I though hush puppies were, hey! corn!!) Big problem for sweet potatoes: they keep getting called yams, causing some confusion.
