At this point, telling you guys Ashley Judd is a famous Kentucky basketball fan is like telling you that a basketball is round, but CNBC has a fun slideshow this morning featuring “Die-Hard Celebrity Sports Fans,” and she’s still high on my list after that “Kiss my Big Blue a**” tweet last week. Also, the facial expression on the woman in front of Ashley is kind of cracking me up (in my head, she’s judging Dancing Guy’s moves).
No offense to CNBC, as Ashley has been seen as “the celebrity Cat fan” for years, but the Kentucky’s star-studded fan base has grown considerably in the past few years. Let’s make a list*!
Dame Ashley Judd
Sir Josh Hopkins
Eddie Montgomery (I see you, Larry Vaught!)
Adam Sandler’s character in “Funny People”
Laura Bell Bundy
*Note: This list excludes famous former Kentucky basketball players. If we included them, we’d be going on for days.
Anyone else? Methinks we need to pit these famous fans against each other in a bracket come tournament time (project!). Who do you think would come out on top?
