Rumor has it they have no intention of visiting the quiet and peaceful lower arena.

In case you were not aware, Kelly Craft is the United States Ambassador to the United Nations. That is Kelly, the wife of Joe Craft.

Yes, that Joe Craft.

She has been a rising star in politics for some time, going out and representing America to the world. On December 14th, though, she will be bringing the world to not only America, but Kentucky.

Craft will lead the United Nations Security Council on a tour of Kentucky. They will visit the governor, test some bourbon, and finish their trip with a stop at Rupp Arena to watch the Wildcats play.

Kentucky will be playing host to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at 5:00 p.m. that evening, and the entire U.N. Security Council will be in attendance. This group normally visits hostile areas and takes on peacekeeping missions. But given the peace and quiet that is often found in the lower arena, it is safe to say this is strictly a recreational visit.
