For those readers living outside of Kentucky and Ohio, tomorrow is the day of the NCAA “Sweet Sixteen” game between the University of Kentucky and Ohio State. Judging from what I’m hearing, this is the biggest UK game since I moved to Kentucky almost five years ago. Not only is this the first time in a long while that UK made it to the fourth round of the tournament, but currently they are rated #4 among all college basketball teams, while Ohio State is rated #1.
Accordingly, this morning Lexington Mayor Jim Gray made a special announcement. Friday will be Blue and White Day, and all Wildcats fans, wherever they are, should wear the team colors to show their support. Therefore I plan to wear both my UK T-shirt and my hoodie. I’ll tell you afterwards how everything worked out.
