Root for the Yankees for a weekend. Mainly because he said so.
*GASP* Blasphemey! How could I even say I wanted the Yankees to do well? Surely I’m kidding, right? No? KSR has jumped the shark. But wait. Before you panic, hear me out.
First and foremost, I’m not a big baseball fan. By association – not a Yankees fan by any means. But in case you haven’t heard yet – strangely enough, every year (save for the first,) that Kentucky has won the national title, the Yankees have won the world series. And even the first one was pretty close. Kentucky won its first title in 1948 while the Yankees had won the world series the year before in ’47. Of course, they both won in ’49, ’51, ’58, ’78, ‘ 96, and ’98.
So let’s all chip in, swallow our pride, and hope the Yankees have a good year – at least for the next five days. Then we can all put our money down on them winning the title and go back to our Yankee hating ways.
(In unrelated news, another thing I wanted to point out. Jay Bilas picked against UK in the sweet sixteen and the elite eight. He’s also picked against us on Saturday. I like our chances.)
