Did you go to UK? Odds are you’ll relate with this list of “41 Signs You Went to the University of Kentucky” that’s circulating around the internet this morning. Here are some of my favorites:

As someone who did not go to UK, but whose life revolves around their athletics programs, I’d like to nominate three more:

42. You Can’t Watch a UK game without the KSR Live Blog

“SLOW DOWN, MATT!!”

43. You’ve bought Drew Franklin a shot at Two Keys

44. You’ve gone to Romany Road Kroger just to say hi to John Short

Because he’s a great American.

Your turn.

    You got a parking ticket from campus parking, you got towed, you got kicked out of dorms for one beer, you got an AI at an sec tailgate, you did not get tickets as a student for UNC game, you watched Billy G, you listened to Mitch Barnyard talk up the rifle team, you got stabbed in the foot at Willy T, you got tuition raised on you every year.

    You were late to class, parked in the employee lot and still got pissed you got a parking ticket! I think the parking police had people hiding in the woods that ticketed you as soon as you were out of sight!

    You overhead Tubby Smith describing over breakfast at Blazer Hall his fondness for Silence of the Lambs. Who knew Tubby was a Demme fan?

    Another strike against UPS – Emery (of Chris Mills envelope fame) is now a part of UPS!

    You overheard Antoine Walker trying to bum some money off a girl outside of the student center. To her credit she was saying no, even though he said he was good for it.

    You had at least one wonderful encounter with Mr. Wildcat! And if you’re old enough, you went to Two Keys before it was famous.

    You have several memories of “the time you saw (insert UK basketball player here) while they were walking on campus.”

    great, Bob Sugar has come out from his hiding spot. Oh joy. As usual Bob brings nothing but sunshine in his post at #1.

    Anyone ever been to red mile. They are racing Sunday before they alumni game. I’m coming to town for the game. Does anyone recommend or not recommend red mile. Looking to do some drinking and fun in lexington Sunday night. Die card ky fan

    The only option for food hungover on Sundays is Ramseys

    20- I wouldnt recommend unless you just really really like horse racing. Harness racing is terrible and it’s not a party crowd or anything. Just degenerates.

    20. Wouldn’t be at red mile for sure. Boobie bar is about the only thing on a Sunday

    You’ve used the “big blue building” as a compass to find the next bar.

    You know what was in the big jar on the bar at the original Paddock.

    You’ve witnessed someone squirt lighter fluid on a leather couch while wearing a sombrero

    In line with the “saw so-and-so on campus” I’d have to say that the only really cool jock that I ever saw on campus was Dwight Anderson. I never met the guy or even spoke to him, but you could tell he had a sense of humor and irony about himself that jocks don’t usually develop. He was chatting up the co-ed who was working the reception desk at the Student Center and looked like he stepped out of a David Lynch movie (or maybe Blazing Saddles). He was wearing an enormous 10 gallon cowboy hat. Boogie in his clear glasses and doofus winter hat came close to that, but I’ve seen other people wearing that kind of thing. In 1979, no college kid wore cowboy duds.

    You cut Friday afternoon classes in order to be at The Two Keys (well before it was famous) for all-you-can-drink Falstaff beer $2.
    Yeo, I’m that old.

    You remember Schu’s Bar that used to be across S. Lime from the ABC Med Center.

    27 – You didn’t live out west. Ranchers did and still do wear cowboy hats and boots, even in college. They usually were members of Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity.
