Eric Church gives his fans a reason to support Coach K

Eric Church chooses the Final Four over his work and we can’t really blame him.

There are only three groups of people who will be supporting Duke and Mike Krzyzewski in the Final Four this weekend – Duke fans, Coach K’s family and Eric Church fans.

The country music star is canceling a sold-out show in San Antonio, TX, so he can cheer on his beloved North Carolina Tar Heels in New Orleans, LA.

“This Saturday, my family and I will come together and cheer on the Tar Heels as the team reaches the Final Four,” Church said in a statement. message to ticket holders.

“As a lifelong Carolina basketball fan, I’ve seen Carolina and Duke fight over the years,” Church said. “But seeing them face off in the Final Four for the first time in NCAA tournament history is every sports fan’s dream.

“It’s also the most selfish thing I’ve ever asked the Choir to do: give up on your Saturday night plans with us so that I can enjoy this moment with my family and my sports community.”

Honestly, it’s hard to blame Church for skipping work to see Carolina-Duke. I would skip anything for the chance to see the Jets in the Super Bowl – weddings, births, funerals, sentencing hearings. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Take it.

Bringing his family into the equation was also a good idea. How could his fans blame him for spending quality time with his family?

There are a handful of his fans on Twitter who seem to understand his decision, but there are a lot of angry Eric Church fans right now.

Jilted Eric Church fans join Duke/Notre Dame/Yankees/Lakers/Cowboys fans this weekend in supporting Coach K against his nemesis. Meanwhile, the rest of the world is hoping we see Coach K end his career like the sore loser he always was.

I couldn’t tell you an Eric Church song, but I’ll have to check it out on Spotify for a pre-game listen on Saturday.
