Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Midway, KY shut down for the day

The entire town of Midway, KY came out to the railroad tracks to wave at Calipari and Kentucky’s new hardware as it rolled through town. They even cancelled school so all the kids could be a part of the festivities.

That’s Kentucky basketball for you.

    Midway has better dining than Lexington. Nice little burg in the middle of the most beautiful piece of countryside on god’s green Earth.

    I agree Eric. I’ve pretty much stopped trying. No point, outsiders will never understand really….

    Funny. Some middle school kids get a day off over a week after the NC game to watch a trophy fly by on a train, but UK students couldn’t get the day after the game off?

    Midway is a cool, historic town. I met William Shatner there a few years ago.

    Just wanted to say that I think everyone is fine if you guys wanna keep taking train rides in the middle of no-where. Kentucky Sports Radio was actually good today! Universally accepted as the best show so far.

    I’m relieved that our fans in the hinterlands of Midway and the surrounding environs were finally able to see Coach Cal. The old timers there can now pass on in peace having finally seen Cal, and the youngsters have a tale for their grandchildren some day.
