The Big Blue Road Trip: Columbus

Columbus 3

We’re all feeling like this guy after that UCLA game.

The Cats came up a little short, but I still like this team and where they’re headed. Get Ulis and Lee back to full strength and toughen a couple of the other guys up a bit and they’re in good shape.

We watched the game with the alumni club in Columbus at Yogi’s Bar and Grill and there was a nice crowd of about thirty fans that came out. Yogi’s is the place to go to watch UK sports. The alumni club has a great relationship with them, so much so that Yogi’s has an entire room dedicated to UK athletics. It’s not just a private room that they reserve for UK fans, but a room that fits around sixty people and is literally called “The Rupp Room” complete with a wooden plaque that says so. Right below that, there is a picture of Rupp Arena hanging on the wall.

One of the reasons alumni club’s exist is to raise scholarship money for kids in their area who want to attend UK, and Yogi’s is also a big supporter of that. Every year, they donate money to the Columbus Alumni Club’s scholarship fund and help send a student from central Ohio to the University of Kentucky.

There is a lot of UK passion in central Ohio, and if you ever find yourself in the area during a game, head on over to Yogi’s.
