If you think you were heartbroken when Connecticut beat Kentucky Monday night, wait until you see the reaction this from 4-year-old Kentucky fan.
“My husband and I are originally from Kentucky and have been Wildcat fans all our lives,” said Rachel Calton. “My husband is in the Navy and is currently stationed in Connecticut on the USS Hartford as the Weapons Officer, so obviously we are surrounded by UCONN fans.
“We are making sure we raise our kids to cheer for the best team, though. Our 4-year-old was asleep before tip-off on Monday night, but wore his Kentucky jersey to bed and the first thing he asked me when he woke up Tuesday morning was if Kentucky had won. I knew he was going to be upset by the news, but didn’t expect quite this reaction. Could he be the saddest Kentucky fan?”
If he’s not, I would not want to see the fan who was sadder. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry with the young guy. Enjoy this video and thanks Rachel for reminding us all just how early the blue blood starts flowing, especially when he said, “No, it’s not” when his mom told him that UK still finished second.
