As lifelong Kentucky football fans we all know the pain of walking out of the stadium heartbroken after getting up for a huge game that could change the program but ultimately, they fell short and, in some cases, lost in the craziest way possible.
All of that can be made up for Saturday with a win.
Robert Cunningham wrote a letter to Kentucky Football on Kentuckysportsradio.com before they take the field this Saturday and I think it is something that all of the BBN needs to read and here’s an excerpt of it:
Let’s be honest, win or lose this Saturday, we both know I’m not going anywhere. If I was going to leave, I would have done so a long time ago, because, quite frankly, you’re not easy to love. Me perpetually hoping. You frequently failing. And if you fail me again this weekend, I’ll do what I always do, which is get over it and come back next weekend. It is what it is. You’re my team, for better or worse.
But I, your fatigued yet faithful fan, am asking you to be different. One time. One game. Can things go differently for us?
I’ll be honest, you’ve trained me to be a cynic. But I’m choosing not to give in to cynicism. I’m choosing to believe you are going to reward your fanbase for years of long-suffering devotion.
You’re going to beat Georgia. You’re going to play in Atlanta. And you’re going to heal our many painful years together with this one win.
I think all of BBN understands exactly what you are talking about and all that pain and heartbreak can be erased if they can just beat the Georgia Bulldogs. Well said Robert.
