Happy Birthday to Demarcus ‘Boogie’ Cousins

A special birthday wish from our buddy little Carl

It began with a goofy smile in a picture.  When we first heard that Calipari would be bringing Demarcus Cousins with him to Kentucky, the overwhelming reaction was joy.  But there were plenty of stories that made us concerned, whether it was about Cousin’s work ethic (he was often compared to Randolph Morris, if you remember,) or the rumors that he was flat out a head case.  But Cousins quickly found his place in our hearts with a cheesy smile in every fan picture.  After that it was his nick naming contest, and after that his interviews on the streets of New York.  We came to realize that Boogie had always been misunderstood, and while the national perception will take a while to come around to that fact, we here at Kentucky had found a favorite son.

But our little Big Cuz is all grown up now, making more in a year than most of us will see in a lifetime.  On the morning of his twentieth birthday, let us all wish him a very happy birthday.

And if you need your boogie fix, here’s a highlight video of him from last year, and here’s a video of him playing with a baby.
