I moved to KY in 1977. I was not really into basketball when I moved here, even though I thought most of my friends were crazy the way they carrried on about basketball. They really went crazy when KY won the 1978 NC.
I moved to North Carolina in 1983 and stayed until 1985. I got so much grief because I was from KY (even though I was born in Va. and raised in TN).
Someone told me "you ain't a wildcat now, you are a tarheel". Somehow, I knew I could never be a "tarheel" even though all my family are from North Carolina.
I guess that really started my becoming a real die hard, crazy, lunatic wildcat fan. Have been ever since.
I am a true blue, bleed blue, love the wildcats, crazy fan to this day.
I wanted to hear from other Wildcat fans, home born or transits like me. What makes us so crazy about our beloved Wildcats?
