Why Does a Minute in Basketball Feel Like it Takes Forever?

Okay, we are up by five and I am truly losing it. A minute 56 to play. NC lands a three pointer. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Only two points! You're killing me boys! Come on! YOU. ARE. KENTUCKY! Play! Foul. Bledsoe scores a free throw. And another. Up by four. Thirty seconds left. I'm not breathing. Eleven seconds. How'd we get to five? Who cares! They score again. Down to three. Foul. He shoots, he scores X two. Back at five. Graves hits a three pointer. NOT ENOUGH. We win!

Kentucky beats North Carolina 68-66. The universe is back on its axis. Birds are singing.
And now you know what my kids refuse to watch Kentucky basketball with me in public.
Go Cats!
