And Ode to Kentucky - from a Bama fan.


Looking forward to the game, Kentucky. Just a shout out to my appreciation of the state and its flagship university. We both hate Tennessee. So we're friends already. Y'all make the best strong drink. Kentucky bourbon all day over whatever it is they make in TN. Also, you gave us blue grass, good tobacco, and have represented the SEC well in basketball (a sport I do care about a great deal). I have no animosity for Kentucky at all. Of course I hope to win this Saturday, but I always want to see Kentucky become a power in the SEC east so Florida and UT can squirm. This is only heightened by the fact that two of your former players are dear friends of mine...Al Godwin and Michael Aitcheson. You also have an in-state rival that isn't a total dumpster fire in sports, so you hate them, and rightly so, because they simply live to bring down the flagship. And any state that can claim Wendell Berry as a native...well, that's just awesome. So yes, Roll Tide this Saturday, but every other day, Go Big Blue. Hope it's a good one, hope Stoops turns out to be a great hire, hope to visit Lexington again soon. Love and respect.
