Everyone’s favorite UK fan (besides me, of course), Ashley Judd is planning on making an appearance at Rupp on Saturday for the UNC game if she can conquer her bout with the flu. Tom Leach caught up with Ashley and and posted the interview to his site. In it, we learn that Ashley is currently attending Harvard. Am I the only one that didn’t know this? Maybe that’s why she uses words like “incendiary” to describe the play of John Wall. A word that I, even as a graduate student, can only make an educated guess as to what it means.
You know, Ashley gets a lot of love for her looks but I LOVE listening to her talk about UK basketball. Outside of Kate Martin, I’m not sure there’s a chick (that’s not a sexist word, is it?) that knows more and can analyze better the ins and outs of Kentucky basketball. It truly is impressive. So hopefully she can make it on Saturday. I’ve seen how tough she was in Double Jeopardy. I don’t think the flu stands a chance.
