UK Fans Display Embarrassing Behavior After ‘Cats Title Win [VIDEO]

Recently, I wrote about how Kentucky basketball is hated by some as strongly as it is loved by many. For several years, I've known people who simply didn't like the 'Cats at all. After writing the piece, I learned that it's the fans that are the biggest turn-off. Not all the fans, obviously, but enough of them.

Kentucky/Louisville Is the Most Psychotic Matchup in Final Four History

 

FacebookWBKR General Sales Manager Traci Davis came to me and told me that this morning, while she was in her office, she heard a thud, like something had hit the window. Sure enough, a bird had flown into it. But it wasn't just any bird. It was a cardinal. She took that as an omen.

Seriously, it's a shame that someone had to lose.

NCAA Tournament: Wacky First Weekend Sets Up Monster Rematch

It was a week ago tonight that I said, on Facebook, "If these first two games are any indication, we're in for a pretty nice tournament."
