YAY for a new basketball coach for Kentucky! It is about time!! I have grown up a huge UK fan especially because my whole family went to college there (except me! ha!) and my grandpa and uncle played basketball there. Honestly, growing up in Kentucky makes it hard to not be a fan-especially if you love sports.
When I was younger I couldn't wait to go to the games or even watch them on TV. My family was always either at the games or hosting some sort of party to cheer them on. Some of my favorite memories are sitting with my sisters and cousins at the top of Rupp Arena (because our parents and brothers got the good seats) and cheering on my favorite players-Derek Anderson and Ron Mercer. The players seemed so old back then...and now they seem so young!
The past few years of UK basketball have been rather depressing, so a change was definitely needed. I was definitely glad to be in Africa for this particular season. NIT!?! I mean, really? Never thought I would have seen that day. Well, in honor of our new coach, John Calipari, I celebrated by putting Micah into his UK outfit.
I'm all geared up and ready to play!
C-A-T-S...CATS CATS CATS!!!
Micah's first word besides "mama" and "dada" was ball, and he loves to play ball-especially with his Daddy. We are in high hopes that he will be a baller one day for either UK or UNC (for his Dad)...either way we are good! :) I almost called Coach Gillispie and asked if he needed a sub!
He is the cutest fan ever and I'm thankful that he can now sport this outfit proudly. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for Kentucky. I can't wait to take Micah to a game one day with Nani and Poppi! Paul even said that it makes moving back to Louisville a little more tempting...ha!
This season still isn't over for Daddy's team. So for now, we are cheering the UNC Tarheels all the way...and of course anticipating what next year may bring for both teams!
