What are the characteristics of a “legend”? First, I think a legend can be anyone or anything. John Wayne was a legend. The Ford Mustang is a legend. “I Love Lucy” is a legend. I wanted to make sure you understood my personal definition of a legend, because I’m going to throw a legendary structure into that mix—Rupp Arena, home of the UK Wildcats. And why did I ask the question that opened the post? Because I think, sometimes, legends must retire or be retired. See, I've heard rumblings and seen stories and I think we’re headed in that direction with regards to Lexington’s legendary sports facility.
