HAPPY 200TH BIRTHDAY, LOUISIANA!
I don’t normally get that excited about other states’ bicentennial celebrations.
But New Orleans did all Kentuckians a kindness this year. They hosted the 2012 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship — an event that I’m not sure if I have mentioned here…
So, forever more New Orleans — and indeed the entire state of Louisiana — will have a warm spot in my memory and in my heart.
Enjoy your big day, Pelican State. You sure helped all us Wildcats enjoy ours.
Can’t help it. I’m super psyched that Kentucky is the #1 Seed in the NCAA tourney.
And did you know that the state of Kentucky has three other teams in the big dance? Murray State University. Western Kentucky University. And the University of Louisville.
(I’m just faking it for that last one.)
Whatever the tournament may bring, March Madness begins Wednesday…and the pride of the Bluegrass is behind the Cats!
