As we mentioned the other day, there’s no time to let your Cancun buzz wear down with another potentially huge Cats sports weekend in the cards. When Kentucky beats Tennessee on Saturday night, the party will just be getting started – especially if you’re in Louisville. John Calipari’s squad will hold an open practice at Freedom Hall Sunday evening at 5:30 in preparation for Monday’s game with UNC-Asheville. The gates will open up at 4:30.
But, the excitement doesn’t end there because on Monday night, the Greater Louisville Chapter of the UK Alumni Association are hosting a massive pep rally at the Kentucky Expo Center from 5-7. As it did last year, the pep rally will also welcome the UK band, dance team and cheerleaders, as well as face painting and games for your kids (or interns). The first 1,000 fans will receive a free poster and door prizes will be given away throughout the entire event. Also, there is a bar. Not that that matters, right?
UK Alumni Association members and their children under 12 get in free and it’s only $5 for everyone else. Last year’s event drew around 3,000 people and, with Coach Cal mentioning a possible three-game series in Louisville, let’s hope another strong crowd shows up this year.
