What a couple of days so far. I would send pics but I am having a camera malfunction. I have three with me so I will send pics later.
Let me start by saying the BBN is in force. The Wednesday morning land grab was bigger than usual. I worked all day and stayed up all night to number 1 in line number 7. Then I raced back to Louisville in order to go to work on time. I would only recommend that to guys way younger than me. I hurt all over. But it is worth it. I met some GREAT guys from Eastern KY that watched my spot until I returned yesterday. For the first time my youngest son came with us. We have already seen most of the team and have lots of signatures.
We also watched Nerlens, Archie and Alex play a pick-up game . They passed out Pizza at around 9 Thursday night and my wife talked Kyle into signing for us even though they were not suppose to during that time. Friday morning they passed out sausage biscuits to the early morning crowd.
This campout is all about the BBN. I talked to granddads like me who came to get tickets for their grandkids. I saw a guy with a championship ring who is a member of the 101 club. I am camping near a guy who is almost 70 and came for the first time just to spend the time with his sons. WOW.
As I talked to campers one thing seems to be keep coming up. We are all here to show these young men what it means to be part of the BBN. I spoke with people from areas with the lowest unemployment in the state and they were all here because this is there only way to see the players or get into Rupp arena. It means EVERYTHING to them.
This should be a bucket list event for all members of the BBN. Its like a 4 day tailgate with old friends and we have already read what that means to football season ticket holders. It the people that make this great. I came by myself and was welcomed with open arms by guys who didn’t know me from Adam. Now I have so many new friends that I can’t name them all. They call me Texas LOL and I will be walking around and next thing you know someone screams Texas and we are shaking hands and smiling big like they have known me all of there lives.
It’s the Nation Baby! An extended family with one thing in common. WE ALL BLEED BLUE. I wish all of the View Crew were here! ! ! Thanks Larry for the opportunity! GO BLUE OR STAY HOME
