The texts and tweets started rolling in around 8:30 on Friday night, as I stood next to a police officer looking at what was left of my Mustang. According to my phone, my alma mater, Duke, was behind No. 15 seed Lehigh late in their NCAA Tournament game.
I obviously didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t particularly care very much in that moment. But as I watched my fiancÃƒÂ©e climb into an ambulance to be examined by EMTs, I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t help wondering why I ever cared that much to begin with.
