“I don’t remember getting it, but I’m not surprised I did,” yelled Kentucky football superfan Theodore Logan, even though we were standing right next to him and could hear him just fine.
“It’s the year of years, a promised promise come to be. One more step towards greatness, and this step is through Northwest Louisiana,” added Logan while attempting showcase an invisible championship belt around his waist with his hands.
Bleed Blue tattoo shop owner Samuel O’Reilly explained that while Logan wasn’t the first customer that came through his shop wanting a tattoo declaring a premonition, it was the first time he’s had one for a fan of the football team. “While tattoos of confidence in UK have become a staple for our shop, confidence and tattoos haven’t exactly been synonymous with the football teams fan base over the years. In fact, football fans usually get something to do with how much they hate 3rd and long delay draws. If it’s something to do with next season, there’s usually a ‘maybe’ attached somewhere.”
Logan explained, “For a bunch of years we’ve been told to be patient, but after we beat Louisville, everything’s changed, we’re like super good now. So this year the sky’s the limit really, and no one knows the sky’s limit more than Camping World.”
While Camping World’s flags may soar high over Georgetown, UK’s football team is hopeful they can fly some sort of championship flag over Kroger Field this year but are currently aiming a little higher than Logan’s prediction.
“Look I’m not saying we can’t do better than a late December bowl in Louisiana’s third largest city, but I’m not trying to set my hopes too high. I mean this is gonna be on my body forever, and I don’t want the team to feel too much pressure because of it. If for some reason they fall short of the goal at hand, the last thing I would want is them pointing to this act as the main reason the season fell apart,” explained the longtime fan.
Logan, the eighth year senior added, “In the end, I just want one bowl win before I graduate.”
