Thrillist is a website that ranks just about everything that can be ranked, and yesterday, they ranked all 50 United States. Where did Kentucky end up? Number three behind Michigan and Maine (??):
Things that are really important to Kentucky: making all the good bourbon, drinking all the good bourbon, drinking all of said good bourbon while wagering on horse races, eating open-faced sandwiches that are covered in an irresponsible amount of liquid cheese, making peace with sleazy basketball coaches you’d otherwise dislike because Ashley Judd needs something to root for, dammit. All things considered, Kentucky has it pretty figured out.
I appreciate the high ranking, Thrillist, but was it necessary to call John Calipari sleazy? Besides, I’m not sure I trust a list that has Michigan and Maine first and second and Hawaii sixth. Wisconsin fourth?! No!
