BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: WAZOO Sports Giving Thanks to Classic UK Games

If you are someone who either doesn’t have a family outing to go to this Thanksgiving, or gets easily bored with your family on Thanksgiving, WAZOO Sports is giving you some amazing programming, including a couple old UK games that I would be willing to bet most of you have not seen.  Here is there schedule for Thanksgiving:

2PM: 1996 NCAA Championship (Kentucky vs. Syracuse)

430PM: 1966 NCAA Championship (Kentucky vs. Texas Western)

545PM: Documentary on 1958 National Champions (Narrated by Adolph Rupp)

645PM: 1958 National Championship (Kentucky vs Seattle)

(Special thank go to Danielle Kom, WAZOO’s terrific sideline reporter for their live games, for sending me the schedule of events.)

I have been told that the documentary narrated by Adolph Rupp is a MUST-WATCH, as I know a lot of UK fans who likely have rarely heard Rupp’s voice, much less his breakdown of a season.  And I know I have never seen the 1958 title game in its entirety. 

So while I will not be able to watch these live, you can bet my DVR will have 7-8 hours of WAZOO programming on it today.  Hopefully, lots of you have the opportunity to watch as well.

Happy Thanksgiving to All.
