Tip Off

Man oh man,
Talk about if I had didn't have bad luck, I'd have no luck at all... Well, the Cherokee lost in the playoffs for hockey and got eliminated. So when I broadcast the Hurster Cup this week, it'll be totally unbiased (and only mildly interested). To make things more interesting this week, my gal pal and I both are in my NCAA basketball tournament pool. And her very favorite team who she is ferverent and wildly passionate about, the Kentucky Wildcats, play this friday. I've become a Kentucky fan for basketball. I enjoy watching the tradition and how the fans are the most rabid I've seen for basketball. My only problem is that I was born and raised an Ohio State fan. I was also raised a Notre Dame fan. But since they got bounced early, I still have the Buckeyes. So now the other half, she is telling me that I'm not a real UK fan. I am a UK fan. But I don't have the time invested in them like I do Ohio State. Its not that I don't want Kentucky to win on Friday night. But I don't want to see the Buckeyes lose either. My sweetie is giving me loving, playful hints about the game on Friday night... ("prepare to die Buckeyes!!") lol... But OSU is the overwhelming favorite going into this game. I'm not saying too much cause I know how passionate she is about her Cats. For her, it's so much more. I told her if the Wildcats win, then I would pull for UK. I asked her if she would do the same if OSU won... of course she said "Heck NO"... So when I get home Friday night. She'll have the game on at her house, and I'll have the game on at mine. But we won't have anything to do with each other until Saturday.... this is serious wars have been started over less...

One of the few times I was pulling for UK, it was an amazing game.
