I love the outrageously fun interstate stare down this week between UL and UK.
The smack talk: clever put downs and cleverer retorts and most of what goes with it. Most of it is in good fun, to be expected and a healthy and natural fan activity given the rarefied Final Four positions our state’s two remarkable basketball teams have achieved this year.
But there is a line where we start to sound loopy, goofy, nonsensical and downright mean-spirited if not a little demented.
The key is being cute, clever and competitive. Be like a happy warrior who relishes competition rather than a rambling insulter and hater.
So, before you rush out and buy this t-shirt or its corollary suggesting you do the same if you hate UK, I have a different suggestion.
And, most importantly, have one heckuva fun time. This may not happen again. For another year.
