Kentucky's State Religion

I am far and away the worst blogger in the universe.

Well, that's not true. High-School-Nathan-with-a-Xanga-account is the worst blogger in the world. But at least he had the excuse of youth on his side, and also not knowing what the word "blog" meant.

I digress. I haven't written here since before the wedding, and that's not because there's been nothing to write about. Mostly I forget that I have this thing, and that I can use it to update people about things. Or to express how eloquent I can be, as that last sentence illustrated. Also, how I don't care about starting a sentence with an article.

I just watched the tail-end of a losing Kentucky basketball game. They played well in the bit that I saw, but it was just too much to overcome.

In Central/Eastern Kentucky, basketball is like a religion. I don't know how it is elsewhere, but that's how it is here. Not everyone here roots for the Wildcats, but those that don't fall into one of two camps: those who don't mention it and maybe fake it a little when they have to, and those that actively show how much they dislike the Cats and how much they LOVE any other team or no team at all. It's a very strange phenomenon. Also, just like religion, there are certain days that people will come out and show their support. For Christians it is Christmas and Easter; for Wildcat fans it's March Madness.

I don't know. Nothing of real worth here. Just blathering on.

Good night, and good luck.
