I like to imagine the song from the end of The Breakfast Club is playing in that one guy’s head. Photo via Dave Redden Photography.
Serious question real quick: Why are you reading this? I mean seriously. Even though today is Final Four day, we really have no real vested interest in the games, and even if we did, they don’t start until later tonight. For now, though, it’s a sunny day outside, it’s opening weekend for Keeneland, and if your friends don’t dance, well then they’re no friends of mine.
If you’re in Lexington, not a Keeneland fan (or maybe your best bowtie is at the cleaner’s), and need a fix for some type of UK sporting event, there is a rugby game going on in, like an hour and a half. So don’t worry about that shower you were needing to take at some point this weekend, just throw on a scrum cap and head to the Pitch around 1 pm. You might see something like this:
Seriously, there isn’t a lot going on in UK sports at the moment; we’re in that weird beginning spot between the two “big” seasons where there are no huge games and we’re not sure how to schedule around that yet. We’re used to having something to do with our Saturdays. Well, now you can. If you like seeing guys carrying a ball and getting tackled, or even if you just want to be outside and yelling at somebody, go watch some rugby. Just don’t call it “Diet Football,” or they might murder you.
Plus they’re playing Vanderbilt, and really… ruck those guys.
