They hope to make it the most shared March Madness photo in history.  Hey, if it helps the Cats —

I’m in!

Big Blue Balladeers

My post is late tonight.

I did put in a long work day.  And I’ve been chipping away at that pile of Christmas cards.  But the real reason?

The Sing-Off on NBC.

Tickets go on sale today for Big Blue Madness, the annual season-opening basketball practice of the University of Kentucky Wildcats. This year’s event is scheduled for Friday, October 14th at Rupp Arena in Lexington and marks the official beginning of college basketball in the Bluegrass.

Happy days are here again!

A literal tent city has popped up outside the ticket office this week — a record 570 tents in all.  Fans like me who are far, far away from the Big Blue Nation can get tickets on the phone via Ticketmaster.

But you have to get up super-duper early to have any kind of shot, so…
