Kentucky ranked the third best state in America

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 (??):

3. Kentucky

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!

    Sounds like it was written by some Big 10 buffoon with a family connection in Maine. Every yahoo that dislikes Kentucky or Kentucky basketball feels the need to take cheap shots at our program and our coaches. As far as I’m concerned the guy that wrote the article has no credibility and has exposed his own side of sleaze.

    I knew all I needed to know when I saw it was from Thrillist. Please never link to that garbage website again, it really does suck.

    Among those factors NOT considered in these rankings: education levels, per capita income, infant mortality rates, standard of living indexes, environmental health indexes, and average-number-of-teeth-per-person. Bur yeah, we do make bourbon.
