I thought about writing a post looking ahead to the LSU game, but that seemed way too depressing. Instead, let’s talk about some of the reasons that we miss UK games. If you’re reading the site, you’re probably a dedicated enough fan that missing a game, be it live or on television, is something you never do. However, sometimes we do have to fire up the DVRs and catch it after the fact. I didn’t watch one second of the Florida game this weekend. I wrote and starred in a play called American Shark (It’s was a great success) and we had shows at 8 and 11 Saturday night. It’s not particularly upsetting that I didn’t get to see us get pummeled, but if I could have, I would have been watching it.
This is a topic that always yields some interesting stories. What are some of your best (or worst) reasons for missing a UK football or basketball game? Let’s here the converse, too. What are some important things that you skipped out on in order to watch Kentucky play? Hell, if there are enough good responses, we’ll all be well prepared to skip out on the LSU game.
