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.
