In honor of all the news and commotion surrounding Coach Bobby Petrino leaving Western Kentucky and heading back to Louisville, I thought a picture of the day starring the adorable WKU mascot was in order. Seriously, Big Red is one of the cutest mascots in all of sports.
I’ve been trying to figure out which Kentucky State Park golf course I took this picture on. Michael plays so many of them (as I ride shotgun and take a gazillion and one pictures). I’ll have to ask him which one this was and come back and add an edit below.
He’ll be able to tell me, not only the course, but the hole, its par, and what he shot that day.
What is it with golfers?
No matter which Kentucky College team is your favorite, you have to admit, Kentucky’s college teams keep things interesting, don’t they?! Whether it’s basketball or football, not only do we have some of the most exciting teams in the country, we have some of the best coaches too.
I’m just as excited about the women’s basketball programs as I am the men’s. UK and U of L are both in the top 10, which is awesome. They’ve become two of the stronger teams in the country and I’d love to see them generate as much excitement as the men do.
Of course, it’d help if they were actually on television more…
Personally, I love to see all of our college teams do well, but I have a little confession to make: I hope the Hilltoppers Football team goes undefeated next year. Personally, I think they were fine pre-Petrino and I think they’ll be fine post-Petrino. What better way to prove the point that with an undefeated season?
Am I right… Am I right…
EDIT: Just as I thought… Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park. Third Hole. He Parred it. Golfers. Gotta love ’em. 🙂
