It is a somewhat sleepy Wednesday night, so I thought I would spice it up a bit with some clips from the archives:
CLIP #1: A reader alerted me to this edition of Cat Calls before Senior Day in 1992 featuring Cawood Ledford. It was Cawood’s final home game before his retirement and the broadcast from one of my childhood role models is absolutely great. He takes calls from all around the state and as a current host of a UK radio call-in show, it is great to see how some things never change. He has a number of people giving shout outs to their home town, asking about Richie and even one caller named John Short predicting a win by a certain amount of big’uns. If you love Kentucky basketball history, you have to listen to this great piece from the not-so-distant past.
CLIP #2: From Saturday’s game, here is a Youtube video of the National anthem before the Cats vs Cards. The singer directed the crowd to sing the lyrics and it was a great moment in Rupp Arena. Check it out in case you missed it:
