Young Cats are already connecting with Big Blue Nation

The new faces on this year’s Kentucky basketball team have all become a regular sighting around Lexington over the past few weeks. One common thread in most people’s comments about the players thus far, besides the fact that the talent level is absurd, is that the young players seem to really be embracing the adoration and connection with the fans of Big Blue Nation. Kentucky is not for everyone, and with the fame comes a lack of privacy and a constant spotlight. The young Cats so far have taken the position and run with it, impressing nearly anyone and everyone to come in contact with them. Marcus Lee was photographed above at last night’s UK Volleyball game (Big win, by the way) hanging out with a group of young Kentucky fans, engaging them in conversation for quite some time during the match.

    Not a 100% sure he was happy but he did share his birthday cookies with them and was a gentleman and a great guy. They also sat with the twins, said they were awesome and more great guys. Proud Dad and proud to be supporting young men like this who are part of the Big Blue Nation. #GBB!
