Yesterday Merlin and I had the opportunity to go to the UK vs. USC football game. I know you may be jealous ... don't be! It was terrible. Neither team is good and the whole thing look like one big screw up fest. It was fun to get together with family and friends before the game and dream of what may have been.
Something happened at this game that got me a little worked up (other than watching turn over after turn over from both teams). We were sitting in the UK section with some great fans. In front of us was a lady in her 60's that was all propped up in her stadium seat. The young couple in front of her stood up as UK was about to score. At first she lightly poked him on the sholder and said sit down then after he did not respond she pulled is sholder back and yelled "SIT DOWN". I am glad to say the guy simply said "I am cheering" and turned around. What is that about?This lady comes to a college football game and expects everyone to sit quietly as their team heads for the goal. I may understand if the younger people were standing for the entire game but it was a perfectly appropriate time to stand and then they quickly took thier seats. She was so rude and might I add lazy for they way she yell and tugged on this guy so she could see the game. I think that it is understandable to not stand the whole game but come on for a touchdown? Ky football fans get very few opportunities to stand and be proud of their team. I think they should take every opportunity given to them!
