The temperature in Kentucky this past week has been 70s with little to no humidity. It has been clear and dry and gorgeous. It’s official: Fall is here. Which excites me for a number of reasons, including:
- The weather
- The leaves
- Pumpkin beer (despite Joe’s recent post, which I will choose to ignore for the time being)
- And of course, football
Yesterday I learned that my excitement for football is of a different breed than that of the UK community. This is a picture of the stadium parking lot:
OK, in downloading that picture I realize it doesn’t really do the parking lot justice. The lot is full of RVs with UK flags waving, and traffic (on the other side of the lot) backed up down the street and up onto the main road.
The first game of the season is Saturday at 7:30 PM. This picture was taken on Friday at 7:00. In the morning.
And the game is against Western Kentucky, not considered a “big game”.
AND Kentucky doesn’t even have a good football team. According to Paul, basketball season is a whole different animal.
