I know it’s not a real cake, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want it on my birthday.
It was a rough week for Kentucky fans. After Tuesday’s injury and Saturday’s humbling loss, there are a lot of things to be disgruntled about. The salve of a recent championship is keeping the worst pains at bay, but there’s no doubt that it still stings. So it’s only fitting that I was reminded Saturday that being a Kentucky fan is bigger than one bad week:

You might remember Major Cummings’ story from last May, which was a great reminder of not only how cool Tubby Smith really is (if that dance video didn’t already convince you), but also how dedicated we are as fans, and how a couple of losses or a bad season aren’t enough to impede that. If you haven’t read it, or don’t remember it, you’ll probably want to check it out. It might cheer you up.
There really couldn’t have been much better timing for Hayden Orlando’s birthday than last week. It’s just a little reminder than things are bigger than a couple games, an injured player, and a disappointing season. So if you’re still upset about last week, and that’s fair, do yourself a favor and wish Hayden Orlando Cummings a Happy Birthday on Twitter. Because after all the misery that last week brought, we know that it gets better.
And, on the topic of #BBN Birthdays, how about sending a Happy Birthday to Ms. Erin Calipari (@TheErinCalipari) as well. Warning, some tweets are NSFW and hilarious.
