Kentucky Football – First and Bold

UK
First and Bold
By John Huang
I’m tired. I’m actually sick and tired–nauseated and exhausted by the numerous false promises, last-second-heartbreak, and general negativity associated with the UK Football program over the past few decades. Like many of you, I no longer have the patience or willingness to accept the myriad of blown calls, game changing turnovers, or bad clock management that seem to mockingly plague our beloved Cats year after year. Unlike many of you though, I’m turning over a new leaf this season–believe it or not. I hereby revoke my annual membership as a long-suffering UK football fan and joyfully resign my commission from the fellowship of the miserable. Whether Norman Vincent Peale or Philippians 4:8, I’m enacting the power of positive thinking to will this year’s version of the gridiron Wildcats to surprising and unimaginable heights of glory.
