HOUSTON — As I write this, we’re somewhere in the sky above Texas.
At least, I think it’s Texas. Because the trip should be about over, and the clouds are much bigger outside the window now than they were when we took off in St. Louis — that’s how everything works in the Lone Star State, right?
Since you’ve got to pay for Wi-Fi on this particular Southwest Airlines flight, and since my partner in crime, Sports Editor Pat James, is dozing on the flight after staying up late last night preparing our Final Four preview, I’ve had a lot of time to just sit here and think.
Obviously, my mind has wandered to Marcus Paige and the 2016 North Carolina men’s basketball team.
That’s why we’re flying to Houston, after all — to try and continue telling the story of these players as they take another step closer to becoming one of those teams you and your children and your children’s children will never forget.
