A to Z Blogger Challenge: Letter B

BLEEDING BLUE

Today's post has nothing to do with anything but my pure unadulterated love for the Kentucky Wildcats. If you know anything about me, you know I love UK. And if you follow college basketball at all, you know they've made it into the NCAA final championship game (happening tonight for anyone who cares) and I couldn't be more thrilled for my Kentucky boys!!!! So besides the fans burning couches and taking the celebrating a bit too far, I love living in Kentucky right about now. What can I say? I'm proud to be BLEEDING BLUE!!!
GO UK!!!! 
What about you? Do you follow college basketball? Were you rooting for a team to make it into the championship game?

Most of my life I didn't care about basketball. Then I went to college in Lexington and my blood turned blue and I was very confused, but I've long accepted it. Yay UK :)

Tasha Seegmiller said...

I used to really follow college sports but just lost interest (or time) as kids and jobs and life crept in. Where I live, the bleeding blue is over BYU or U of U.

Shannon Cyr said...

Stopping by for the A to Z challenge. I don't follow basketball but I love how you incorporated your passion for your team into the challenge. :)

Angela Cothran said...

I always just end up rooting for whoever my hubby is watching :)

Brinda said...

I am so NOT a sports person, but I enjoy the enthusiasm of others!

Cortney Pearson said...

I second what Brinda said! ;) We're not huge sports people in our house! But I admire people who can play because I'm completely uncoordinated.

Cassie Mae said...

Not too much of a bball girl, but football I'm all over!

But I'll totally cheer with you!

Go UK!!!!

Sadly my Tarheels were defeated.

Stephsco said...

How exciting!

I don't follow sports much these days, but while in school I loved attending basketball, football and hockey games. When a whole community rallies around the team, it can be so fun to join in. Hope your UK team wins!

Emily R. King said...

I love me some basketball!
The love interest in my adult contemporary romance plays professional basketball. I think it's their big hands and feet. You know what they say... :)

Loree Huebner said...

UK beat IU - but I will root for them tonight. Love the March Madness!

Angela Brown said...

I enjoy basketball but haven't been able to keep an eye on the brackets for the men or the women. I don't have a particular team I'm rooting for so much luck to the Wildcats :-)

Jasmine Walt said...

I don't really follow sports at all, unfortunately. So glad for your team, though! :D

Carrie-Anne said...

I've always liked basketball, but I don't have a team I particularly like to watch. But if Pittsburgh had a basketball team, I'd definitely be a huge fan!

Julie said...

I'm a Buckeye to the core and my Bucks really let me down losing to Kansas on Saturday. Good luck to your Wildcats, I think you have it in the bag tonight!!

Feather Stone said...

Love your enthusiasm. I played basketball in high school and loved it. My previous boss lived in New Castle, UK and was absolutely bonkers about Football (UK style). His favorite was someone called Shearer, I think. My favorite sport is hockey; saw Wayne Gretzky play in Edmonton. What a thrill.

I'd rather watch plaque form on teeth than basketball. (And as a dentist, I do mean that, literally)

T.D. McFrost said...

I don't follow College Basketball, but what the heck--GO UK!

Michelle Pickett said...

I follow the U of M (Michigan) vs. MSU football game. It's a HUGE deal in Michigan, my home state.

I'll root for blue tonight though.

Thanks for the visit today.

M Pax said...

I went to WVU. We were blue, too. :) It's good to have something to be passionate about.

Alleged Author said...

The hubby and I bleed blue and gold for U of M in pretty much every sport (even if they stink at one). :)

Kelley said...

Good luck to your team! Now I have someone to root for ;)

jamieayres said...

Don't know anything about college basketball but I'll root for the Wildcats for ya tonight:):)

Robin Weeks said...

I don't watch sports. Who has time? Still, I can appreciate the attraction. I used to root for a team with the same colors....

danneromero said...

i love the colors. i feel so out of it. i have never been into sports, and believe me i've tried. i must say, listening to a diehard fan makes it seem so much fun. you've demonstrated how proud you are. :D

Shiela Calderón Blankemeier said...

Today's NCAA championship is brought to you by the letter K :) Glad they won!!!!

Julie Maughon said...

Woohoo, Kentucky girls! I bleed red for the Cards, but tonight? Totally purple. :)
We had the opportunity to be in New Orleans this weekend, and it was incredible. Nothing better than seeing the whole state of Kentucky, Cards and Cats alike, bustling around the streets of the Crescent City. It was the most exciting thing. I was wearing a UofL shirt (like ya do), and some drunk guy on Bourbon Street said he was sorry my team lost and asked, "Who're you gonna root for now?"
I said, "UK, of course. It's my home state!"

:)

Go Cats!

Kristen Pelfrey said...

Oh, what a kindred spirit you are.
I bleed blue.
UK!
We won!
And hooray for A-Z-ing!

Leslie Rose said...

Oh yeah, Wildcats. U of K was the first college campus I ever set foot on. I have to stay loyal to UCLA, but the Wildcats always have a special place in my heart. I'm braving the A to Z as well. It's fun.
