The ACC Tournament is over, and it didn’t snow enough to cancel work today. Life is hard. However, we did have a great week last week with lots to talk about. Here’s this week’s Twitter Roundup featuring all things ACC Tourney, Selection Sunday, snow, and Daylight Savings Time.
On The Snow: I woke up on Sunday to a dusting of snow in Raleigh, and instead of being happy, I rolled my eyes. I’m ready for spring, but not for pollen. It was melted a few hours later, but of course, people had much to say about it.
That yellow snow outside could be because of spring pollen. Or maybe not. Eat at your own risk. #RaleighWX

Meanwhile, the weather in NC is drunk. There was snow in my backyard this morning pic.twitter.com/673EGITbS2

If it's not going to snow a foot (all snow -no ice!), today's snow was the next best thing. Pretty, virtually no impact, & now all but gone.

I cannot deal with daylight saving time, snow, and Sunday anxiety. May need brunch, a pizza, and Goodberry's to get through this.

On Daylight Saving Time: I’m just glad Daylight Saving Time didn’t fall on a work day because then I’d be really upset. Sundays are for getting your life together, so I didn’t mind losing an hour of sleep just to stay in bed all day.
I frugally saved the extra hour I got in the fall to use today. All you people complaining should have planned ahead

Happy Daylight Savings Time!!! Always down to sacrifice an hour of sleep for the sun to be out longer. Sunlight > Sleep.

Daylight Saving is the best thing ever. Make Outdoor Happy Hour Great Again

On The ACC Tourney: Who else was shocked that UNC lost to Duke? Better yet, who else was shocked that NC State got out after the first day?! (That’s a joke). Regardless, Duke is your winner of this year’s ACC Tourney, being the first No. 5 seed in history to have ever won. While the staff and Barclay’s Center might have been a great host, I’m thinking that New York City itself might not have been the best choice in regards to ACC fan bases. WE WANT GREENSBORO BACK.
On The Actual Games and Things:
UNC won the popular vote tho

i'm convinced that booing Grayson Allen only makes him stronger but at the same time it's so hard not to do it
— BERT LAUDERDALE (@brettlive) March 11, 2017
I would ask Duke fans how do they even live with themselves while rooting for Grayson Allen but they're Duke fans.

Jayson Tatum didn’t play 1 minute of this tournament when he wasn’t the best player on the floor

*whispers* Jayson Tatum should’ve been MVP.

Wow, ACC is so good this year, the Coach of the Year can't even make it out of Day 1.

Oh snap. Greensboro just killed Jim Boeheim. pic.twitter.com/ngS5U2FOjs

Every time Boeheim pops off I remember the time I saw K make him wait 45 minutes alone in a hotel cafe before K came down for lunch in '13.

On Selection Sunday: Let the controversy begin. March Madness is upon us. The stage for the big dance has been set, and both UNC (No. 1 seed) and Duke will play in Greenville, SC for the first round of the NCAA tournament. I’m calling VCU to win it all. What’s a 10-seed? I’ve never been good at betting though, so don’t make your brackets based off of my knowledge.
