There’s a reason I haven’t really left the house this week and it’s not just because I’m lazy. Last night, Louisville played Texas A&M in the Music City Bowl, meaning thousands and thousands of Cardinal fans took over Nashville, infiltrating our fine streets with their line beards, olde English font, and black and mild stench. I did go to our neighborhood bar last night to celebrate a friend’s birthday, but made sure to sport UK gear just in case a Louisville fan got lost and wandered to my neck of the woods, a long shot but you can never be too careful.
I wasn’t the only Kentucky fan reppin’ in Nashvegas last night. According to some Louisville fans on Twitter, a family of Kentucky fans went to the Music City Bowl and got kicked out. Apparently, the dad (the main UK fan) pushed a Louisville fan and then Louisville fans around him started shoving and throwing stuff at him. Here’s a video of the tail end of the confrontation and security beginning to escort the UK fans out:

Another Louisville fan tweeted that the UK fan let his kids stand on the chairs in front of him, not quite proper stadium etiquette, but whatever. We don’t have a lot of room to trash talk about football right now, but I’d be willing to put money on the UK fan bringing up Saturday’s big win and the sex scandal. Hookers in the dorm is the ultimate trump card.
(If you get really bored today, search “Kentucky fan kicked out” on Twitter. Apparently we get kicked out of a lot of things.)
