Others will try to tell us this game doesn’t matter. Others will say that UNC-Duke is a better rivalry. Others are stupid. Today’s story about a fight between a UK and UL fan at a Dialysis Treatment Center is brilliant. The UK fan is 69 and the UL fan is 72 and they got into it. Why? I will let the UK fan explain:
“He just happened to think UofL would beat UK and he started to run his mouth,” explained dialysis patient Ed Wilson. Wilson also happens to be a self-proclaimed die hard UK fan. “That’s what started it.”
I love it. The UL fan responded this way:
But Charles Taylor, who was waiting to get hooked up to a machine saw things differently. “I didn’t talk to him about the ball game; I was talking to another guy about the game,” The UofL fan exclaimed. “He was meddling. And told me to shut up and gave me the finger! I wasn’t gonna take no more from him,” UofL fan Taylor said.
Police were called before calm was restored. The state of Kentucky is awesome and this week may be the greatest week in our storied history.
