This weekend when we welcome the Blue Raiders of Middle Tennessee State to town, they’ll bring a group of small-to-medium size fans (or a small-to-medium size group, I’m not sure how big their fans are) to our fair city. As always, they can expect the fine people of the Bluegrass to treat them with all of the hospitality that the Commonwealth has come to be known for, but I’d like to suggest you be a little extra polite with this particular group of people. Especially when it comes to parking. Why, you ask? Because the Middle Tennessee State contingent is likely to stab you should you try to snatch their parking spot. So, although you might have been there first and that spot you have you’re eye on is very close to your tailgate, just let it go if there is a Blue Raider fan staring you in the eyes in a game of parking lot chicken. Keeping a few pints of blood safely nestled in your own veins is much more important than saving yourself a few extra steps.
This has been a public service announcement. Carry on with your day.
