This could really be a bad idea or might turn the tide of opinion for me on this site, but on Thursday I will be taking on McDonald’s All-American and Kentucky Miss Basketball Sara Hammond in a game of HORSE. Hammond turned down a scholarship offer to UCONN to attend UL this fall. She is currently playing for the Kentucky All-Stars as they gear up for their 2-game series with the Indiana All-Stars. The first game takes place in Louisville on Friday night. I will head over to practice on Thursday to take the court against her after running my mouth at the radio station Monday.

As UK fans, would you rather me show off my UK pride against a Dirty Bird, or would you rather me keep quiet just in case I get hammered?
