March 1, 2011: Jorts Day

fear-the-jorts

Senior Day is always a big draw but this year seems to be taking on a little extra ___ as the Cats get set to honor only one player – fan favorite Josh Harrellson.  Facebook is already encouraging you to wear your denim to the game.  Wildcat Textbooks has a countdown outside.  We even have a little surprise planned for you here at KSR.  Some think it can get even bigger, though.  Those people have started a petition for Lexington mayor Jim Gray to make March 1, 2011 “Jorts Day” in Lexington, Ky.  An idea that would create confusion in Gainesville (every day is Jorts Day) now has 10 Lexingtonians backing it and asking for your support in making it happen.  He already has the key to our hearts.  Now let’s get him the key to the city.

    “An idea that would create confusion in Gainesville (every day is Jorts Day)” Hilarious, and true. And I agree with Jason 8/ – Bring back the dennies!

    This movement could have singlehandedly saved Dawahares. JORTS OUT – March 1st – believe.
