Anyone in the state of Kentucky (or anyone who’s familiar with the Bluegrass State) knows that tomorrow is a big day around here. It’s the annual rivalry game between Kentucky and Louisville and it may not seem like a big deal to outsiders but trust me, it’s a big deal.
It’s an especially big deal around our house because while I am a rabid Kentucky fan, Drew is about as big of a Louisville fan as you can find (his college diploma from Kentucky is framed in black with a red matte – it’s ridiculous). So on basketball game day every year, we split up for the day (whoever takes our little guy gets to choose his game day gear), realizing that while we can deal with the fact that we root for separate teams, there is no way in hell that we can watch the game together. Tomorrow is going to be especially rough (for one of us) because not only are my beloved Wildcats facing the Cards but my home team – the Miami Hurricanes – are going head-to-head with Louisville in the Russell Athletic Bowl (yeah we both know it’s no BCS bowl). I’m hoping, praying, keeping my fingers crossed for a complete sweep so I can further convince my little guy to become a devoted Cats/Canes fan.
To get in the game day spirit, I thought I’d round up some of my favorite big blue looks (with a little Miami thrown in for me).
Go Cats! Go Canes!
p.s. – And in case you didn’t believe how divided we really are in our house. The Courier-Journal did a story about it here.
