We are U-K!

We are U-K!

Lexington is known as Wildcat country, home to the University of Kentucky basketball team, where the UK fans are die-hard and bleed blue!

I think everyone can agree that this years basketball season has not be one of our best but it’s too be expected with a new freshman team. With that being said…I ate my words last night when I said I didn’t think we would win {gasp! I’m horrible…but I’m a realist}. The great thing about UK fans, it doesn’t matter if we are playing our best or our worst, we are going to be out in full Big Blue Nation (#BBN) style to support our Cats!

Last night we headed into the Sweet 16 to play our homeland rival, Louisville Kentucky Cardinals. My sister, her boyfriend and I decided to hit up a few local spot to grab a quick bite and then head off to watch the game and show our support.

Starting out the night at Limestone Blue (I mean the word blue is in there name…we had to eat here!)

Get on in there and take a bite…The Grippo’s Mac-n-Cheese is the Friday special and my personal favorite.

My favorite menu item, the Limestone Blue pizza…seen here in just good ol’ cheese and pepperoni.

We scarfed down our dinner, closed out our tabs, and headed off toward campus to meet up with more friends and watch the game at Two Keys.

It’s a sea of blue and white all across Two Keys Tavern. Too many moments of this game involved holding your breath! holdyourbreath

On the edge of our seats. Would we win, would we lose? ChaseUK

An incredible come back in the last few moments of the game and the Cats beat the Cards 74 to 69! Fans parade into the street to celebrate! cats

Everyone chants in unison, “C-A-T-S, cats, cats, cats!” cats

As I decided to bolt before couches get burnt and cars get turned over, I snapped one last photo of Limestone in front of Tin Roof and the sea of UK fans celebrating the win of the year for the Cats. cats2
