Kentucky Basketball: The Sixth Man

This is going to be good - a movie dedicated to the Kentucky basketball fan.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen of the Big Blue Nation, it was only a matter of time before it happened — a movie getting made about Kentucky fans and their unbridled passion for the college basketball team at the Commonwealth's flagship university.

This trailer is a lot of fun, and I find it incredibly droll and totally ironic that there is not one, but two former Duke players making comments in the trailer, and presumably the film; Jay Bilas and Christian Laettner. I have to admit, I feel a little sorry for Laettner and all the grief he gets. Yeah, he deserves some, but I do think, at times, we take the Laettner hate a bit too far.

Of course there is a lot of Coach Cal in there along with plenty of Kentucky fans doing what Kentucky fans do; burning Duke jerseys, talking about their passion for the game, and generally acting crazy and having a lot of fun. I am really looking forward to this thing as it finally gives homage to one of the great things about the Kentucky basketball experience — the fans.
