Tonight is a day that we at Kentucky Sports Radio have looked upon with some dread. On the night of one of the great traditions in college sports, UK basketball Senior Night, we have the unpleasant realization that it will be the last appearance in Rupp Arena for one Woo. As longtime readers surely know, my affinity for Woo is off the charts. The Big Pole to me represents all the great things about sports….he tries hard, he is a bit awkward, he is extremely funny, slightly goofy, nice to the fans and an all-around team first player. I loved Woo from the first interview I ever saw with him (When was the last time you cried? A: Five Years ago. What food did you eat as a kid that you didnt like? A: Dry Steak). IT will be sad to see him go.
I hope fans realize how important it is that they take a break from the negativity and show appreciation to the Seniors. IT is the culmination of a four year experience for them and hopefully the fans will react accordingly. Plus Jai Lucas is in town…..and oh yeah, the Cats really do need a win. Cats-Dogs…..Who you got?
