This is Officially the Worst Christmas Gift for a Kentucky Basketball fan

Christmas morning was nearing a close. My soon to be nine-month-old was ready for a nap, exhausted after playing in wrapping paper for hours. “Wait, there’s one more gift,” my brother-in-law told me.

Instead of excitedly unwrapping a Red Ryder bb-gun, once the bubblewrap was removed I found myself speechless. It’s been three days and I still cannot believe what I uncovered: a 16×20 autographed and framed print of “The Shot” by Christian Laettner. A lump of coal would have been more welcome.

Is there a worse gift for a Kentucky basketball fan while the Wildcats are 1-6? I don’t think so. What should I do with it? How should I pay back my Duke-loving brother-in-law? I am stunned, left with more questions than answers from a Christmas gift that’s more despicable than the year 2020.

    Payback? Just toss it, that’s good enough. I wouldn’t care what it costs the moron that gave it to you. I also wouldn’t care if it cost me any ‘relationship’ I had with him. Only a complete moron or assshole would give you this.

      Remove it from the glass, use a permanent marker to write, “I still hate Laettner!,” complete with your signature, and auction it off to the highest bidder. Then, donate the proceeds to the UK Athletics Association and take the deduction on your taxes! It should bring quite a pretty penny if the BBN understands where the proceeds are going and at the same time would be a nice slap in the face to your brother-in-law!

      Btw, your brother-in-law has no shame and should seek help. It’s very obvious he is still passionately infatuated with his sister proven by the hateful gift he gave you! Lol

    Keep it, hang it. It’s great to have such a rivalry between you guys. Pay backs hell.

    Sell it and give the money back to him. You don’t want that dirty shit on your hands.

    Take it like a man… for now. But keep your eye on Duke, they’ll slip eventually and then you’ll have your opportunity.

    Find a picture of Cameron Mills hitting the go ahead shot in the 98 game. The shot by Cameron doesn’t win the game but it was a classic and kept a damn good Duke team out of the final four. Just a suggestion.

      If you really want to send a message, get a photo of Jamal Maglorie stretching out Wojo while Billy Packer has a panic attack.

    My condolences to you. Get well soon. This is unequivocally the cruelest gift ever.

    Drag out the old .30-06 deer rifle, and tell him he gets a 15 foot head start.

    Take it outta the frame. Drop a deuce. Wipe with it. Send pic to cheater fan that sent it, thanking him for toilet paper during a pandemic!

      Make sure Laettner gets a fudge beard during the wiping process.
