The Best Faces on the Rupp Arena Fancam

Screen Shot 2014-03-05 at 5.03.44 PM

If you were at last nights’ game, odds are you’re in the HD picture taken by the Rupp Arena fancam before the game. I spent a ridiculous amount of time zooming around the picture today to bring you some of the best snapshots.

As always, we’ve gotta start with Johnny Short, who’s dutifully listening to the last few minutes of the pregame show with Oscar Combs and Dave Baker:

What a great American. Hey, look, it’s KSR’s favorite tweeter, Lonny Demaree!

Lonny just wants to know why there was a chicken in the opening scene of “The Hangover.”

What do you think Jimmy Dykes and Brad Nessler are talking about?

Some people were ready for the fancam:

…While others were clearly more interested in eating Rupp ice cream:

(There were hundreds of these.)

These three thought they were going to a Mardi Gras party:

This guy snuck in a pregame nap:

Hey look, it’s Ryan Lemond, his son, and Kyle Macy!

Light up peepers looked a bit evil in the upper deck:

Even Eli Capilouto got in on the fun:

    THAT’S Johnny Short?!?

    Never in a million years did I imagine him looking like that. Not really sure what I thought he looked like, but that ain’t it.

    I think we played better when he used to pick us by 25 big ‘uns every game. The team played like they had to cover his spread. Maybe he should go back to his old ways.

    If those are the most interesting faces in the crowd then we are surely one boring state 🙂

  5. The guy in the lower right corner in the first ice cream pic must have had pinto beans for supper.

      They are about to lose to a team 1-8 in their last 9 games. If we had Duke or Kansas resume, our fans would still be upset. Their resumes arn’t impressive at all.

    The guy in the picture next to the picture of the guy with the blue tongue? Looks like Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean).

    I was looking for my friend, who was on the floor, and noticed that Rod and Kenny Payne appear in the picture twice. So either the cameraman messed up or Rod and Kenny got their picture taken and then ran around and got in the picture again!

      Or C) there really are duplicates of our assistant coaches. We may never know the whole truth behind Cal’s “The Prestige”-style methods.

    Pat Forde’s tag from the last time UK had this was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen!

    If you look closely, there are 3 Brian Longs and 2 Dominique Hawkins warming up in the 360 degree photo. Now that is a potent starting five. I hope Brian Long appreciates it.
