UK Wildcat Basketball

WildcatSomething a little bit different for today and the blog.  Due to my wonderful job (at least most of the time) I am going to be attending the University of Kentucky basketball game this evening.  Yes, I did just attend a game, way up in the stands, last week versus my old college, Transylvania.  Yes, I have attended a little over a handful of games over the the years, going back to around 1989 for my first.  Yes, the experience tonight will blow those out of the water.  I will be seated down on the floor in one of the end-zones.

I am going to have my laptop there and tweet from the game, though not necessarily about the game, but the experience itself.  I will do a little blogging from the game as well, either before, during, and/or after. And maybe, just maybe, I may get a column in the paper on Saturday/Sunday.  Regardless of how it works out, be sure and to check back this evening around and during the game!

However, despite the numerous people using the road, outside of those special events like ballgames and concerts, Christmas shopping in and around the malls and of course accidents, traffic generally moves along fairly quickly. That is, until you get down to just before the University of Kentucky Medical Center and the lanes available narrow to just two, regardless of the time of day and the traffic flow.
