If we take into account the number of Kentucky fans who a) read this site b) have a smart phone and c) are actually in Nashville, I’m going to say there’s about a 15% chance you can actually look up from your screen and see this building. Easily Nashville’s most well-known edifice, the AT&T Building (better known as the Batman Building) was built in 1994 and at 617 ft. is the tallest building in the state of Tennessee. I really have nothing else clever to add to that. On to a quick N&V…
-Biggest news (at least to Kentucky fans) was UK got past Alabama and Tennessee beat Ole Miss to set up a rubber match tomorrow at 1pm EST. I think Brett Dawson said it best on Twitter when he said that the atmosphere at UK/UT should hearken back to the 90’s SEC Tournament battles between UK and Arkansas. Atmosphere will definitely be electric and I am excited for the opportunity to hate Steven Pearl even more. And, via Beisner, we see that when it comes to class, UT fans are who we thought they were:
-In case you haven’t seen this, it’s video of Evan Turner wrapping up the Player of the Year award.
–Dan Werner is still terrible at basketball. Nothing more, nothing less.
-Soccer WAGs (Wives and Girlfriends) will be all the rage this summer during the World Cup. Do yourself a favor and spend some time studying these ladies.
Like I said, it was a quick and dirty News and Views tonight. Lots of good basketball played today and tomorrow will see even more. Check back throughout the day as we follow all the action from Nashville as the bracket picture starts to become a bit more clear. Go Cats!
