“I ball hard, that’s just what I do. I’m a Wildcat. I bleed Kentucky blue.”
No, those aren’t the thoughts of yours truly. They’re the lyrics to a new song and video that are making the rounds regarding Kentucky’s 2012-13 basketball season. And why not? With a football team that’s so cursed on the injury front you’d think Commonwealth Stadium was built on top of a Native American burial ground, why not focus on hoops?
And the focus at UK is on their “Drive for 9,” the song by Henry Ogirri:
What’s most amusing to me is the fact that fans of School X love these types of songs/videos when they’re in support of their own school, but they ruthlessly mock them when they’re written/performed in connection with any other school.
So getcha swag on, Kentucky fans. And prepare your smart aleck comments, everyone else.
