Shout-out to the fans in Commonwealth Stadium last night

If there were ever a game to stay home, last night’s was it. The combination of the Vanderbilt frustration, the freezing wind, and football’s 122nd ranked team as the opponent made for a rather unappealing evening in Commonwealth Stadium. So if you were one of the ticket holders who stayed in, we understand. It’s not completely okay, but it will slide this one time.

As for the fans who were there, way to go. You fought the elements, our first night of winter in Lexington, to support the Wildcats through thick and thin. Your wind-burned face and frostbitten toes are minor battles wounds in the war of football progress, and it did not go unnoticed.

Shout-out to all of you, especially you–backwards hat guy who took a mid-game selfie with Boom Williams…

And you–hooded couple, sharing a blanket, wondering if you made the right decision…

And you–young Cats fans with warm hats…

And you–band…

And you–excited kids who have no idea what it truly means to be a Kentucky football fan. So young and innocent, with no recollection of the Bluegrass Miracle or Chris Doering…

And you–funnel cake family. I’m sorry I caught you mid-bite, but there’s no shame in a warm funnel cake on a cold night…

And you–three couples, all bundled up on date night. Relationship goals…

And last, but certainly not least, you–active, reserve and veteran members of the armed forces, police, firefighters and first responders. The heroes…

Now everyone get in there for the Louisville game. No excuses.
