I Bleed Blue

Damn.

UK lost in the second round of the NCAA tournament.  UAB beat them.  Who?

Being a life long UK fan I have suffered through many losses.  In a final four game in 1984, (I think that was the year) they did not score a point for over nine minutes in the second half. They lost the final game in 1966 in the final minutes with two steals.(Soon to be a major motion picutre, I kid you not). I know all the names of the kids on the team that year, Pat Riley, Louie Dampier, Thad Jarrad (sp?), Larry Conley and Tommy Kron.  They lost to Michigan in a final four game in 1993 when they had one of the best players in the country, Mashburn...and how can anyone forget the shot that beat us in 1992 in the Regional final game of the NCAA when Duke hit that mid-court shot to move on.  That year we had a team that included walk-ons.  We call them the Unforgettables. I remember all their names too.

I love UK basketball and I bleed blue when our beloved Big Blue loses in the tournament.  Every year I think they can win it all.  And Alas, they have only come through seven times!

OK! Now the entry makes sense!!! When I came it had only one word ... the first word and I was sitting here wondering if it was something I should have been able to figure out!
