On, On, U of K!
I know I usually only post once a day, but today is special. Its the official start of the 2011-2012 University of Kentucky basketball season!!! UK opens it’s season tonight at 7pm against Marist College. Lucky for Ryan and I the game is televised on our My Network TV, unfortunately it is tape delayed until 1130pm…BOO! So in the meantime we went to the storage shed and recovered our coveted UK flag. We grabbed the step ladder and prepared to hang it out front for basketball season. Usually I’m not a ‘flag’ person, but when it comes to UK basketball I can’t help but to display my undying affection 🙂
Ryan unrolls the flag in preparation to hang.
She’s a beaut! It’s been since March since we’ve seen each other, but she looks just as good as I remembered…haha!!
This is the start of something special. #2 UK, who has the #1 recruiting class in the NCAA, along with Coach Cal, is ready to take on the season! With the NBA lock-out still in progess the UK boys have had some AWESOME pick-up games on campus. Among the NBA’ers on campus to hoop it up over the summer: Rajon Rondo, Eric Bledsoe, DeMarcus Cousins, Nazr Mohammed, and LeBron James. We only wished that we could have witnessed one of the games. Needless to say, the presence of NBA stars in Lexington should have offered a valuable experience to our current Cats! C-A-T-S…CATS, CATS, CATS!!! here’s wishing my boys luck for the 2011-2012 basketball season!!!
Summer Pick Up Games…..and to think I lived across the street from this court 11 years ago…did I just say ELEVEN?!!! wow…time flies.
