CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — When President Kennedy fêted Nobel Prize winners in 1962 he praised them as the most extraordinary collection of talent and human knowledge gathered at the White House since Thomas Jefferson dined alone. If not, the founding father of a nation, and of the University of Virginia, could not have played for Tony Bennett, men's basketball coach at Mr. Jefferson's University. Saturday his No. 2 Virginia Cavaliers (19-0) will play No. 4 Duke (17-3) in one of the most highly anticipated home games in UVa history. Entering this season, the basketball iteration of ESPN's College GameDay had originated from 46 campuses since its inception in 2005, including six times from Duke, most of any school — but this will be its first time here. "As for within the team, nothing really changes no matter who we play or how much attention the game is going to get. We are very even-keeled because we focus on ourselves, we focus on what Virginia basketball does, we don't focus on who is coming in to play us. ". Even when that someone is Duke — with coach Mike Krzyzewski and his 1,000 victories. The weekend is big, but we as a team aren't worried about it. It's just another game for us. We can't over-think it. We can't be too hyped for it. We have to play it like it's another game. And under Bennett that means playing hardnosed defense (holding opposing teams to 49. 2 points per game, lowest in the land) and a highly efficient offense (top 10 nationally in points per possession).
We're went to Two Gals Thrift Shop on North Monroe Street in Tallahassee for our first stop and met Lucy and Sally. "I don't know if it was so much an inspiration as it was a blessing", said Lucy Poppell, one of the co-owners of the Two Gals Thrift Shop, when referring to how she go into the business. "Both Sally and I were working and we were doing house cleaning", said Poppell. So Lucy and Sally decided to empty their garages one day and have a garage sale, "And sitting out all day long, having a garage sale. The Two Gals had a pleasant experience at an auction where they got a massive return on an item bought. I'm looking at that going 'what is she thinking while she's bidding on it. '", explained Poppell. "Next thing we know, she bought it for seven dollars, we found out what it was, how much it was worth and we sold it for 450 dollars. A vintage Seth Thomas brand Alarm Clock made of pure mahogany. As we analyzed the clock, we started remembering the advice our appraiser told us about time pieces and using our smartphones for research. So we bought the clock for exactly $20. I bought it because it feels really nice, its made of mahogany, and it's a time piece which I know Malcolm told us to look specifically for.
