The Streets of Rupp Arena are Running Red with the Blood of the Cardinals

pic by Brett Dawson

This is the scene in Lexington, where the waters outside of Rupp Arena are red as a sea about to be parted. The waters were supposed to be dyed pink for Breast Cancer Awareness and the showing this Friday of “Pretty in Pink” at Triangle Park. The dye got messed up and now it is red and extremely creepy. If you are planning on going and filming a vampire movie, now is the time.

    Someone screwed the pooch on this one. Seriously, how does one suck so bad? Dudes one job was to make pink water. That’s it. Throw some pink lemonade in there and call it a day.

    I just assumed it was Kool-Aid to celebrate our rich tradition of sedentary, obese, diabetes-plagued, utterly lazy Lexingtonians.

    Someone should go throw some detergent in the water, and make a nice big red foamy mess.

    #5. I’m with you on that Simpsons reference. Didn’t want you to feel like you’re by yourself on that one. Well played.

    McDonald’s is doing a promo of their new summer drink. Free Cherry Berry Chiller for the first 300,000 visitors to Triangle Park!

    Yup! That’s actually the urine of the cardinals…they pissed on the actual arena, but apparently there were excellent roofers contracted and the piss just ran off.

    7) I agree with you. I’ve only visited Kentucky once (thank god), but i’d estimate about 70% of the people to be morbidly obese. However, the food sucked. How does that happen?

    Well, it’s like something out of a Kurt Vonnegut novel–inappropriately awful in one sense, but extremely funny.

    In other news Lexington officals have asked for government aid to buy a truck load of tampons.

    Although it seems to be an Epic Fail, it will be pink very soon if it isn’t already. We need an update.
