I have aptly titled this blog post "A Season of Blue" after my favorite blog about UK sports A Sea of Blue. Watching games with friends and family this season has been a blast, and I love recruiting new fans all the time, especially turning my husband and son into Wildcat fans whether they like it or not. Here is a season's worth of our UK clad family and friends:
Bradley with Grandma & Grandpa B in Tennessee after the Louisville game
Freshman roommates Amanda and Ellen, with the littlest Wildcat at Christmastime
Blue Orleans: Conley, Ari, Bart, me, and Bradley during the Vandy game in January
Kim and I lead the old foaggies in the C-A-T-S Cats Cats Cats cheer

Has anyone else noticed that getting your kids to say cheese does not result in the most natural looking smile?
One lone guy at our table, a friend of a friend, was a Florida fan, and this is what we do to Florida fans' hats
Our friends Matt and Shannon and their son Braylon came to spend a few days with us, and were here to watch the UT game. Matt is a Kentuckian by birth, Shannon is a Wisconsin convert like Brian, and Braylon doesn't have a choice at this point!
Kim took and edited this picture of Bradley- we discovered that pickles are a good distraction and keep him occupied for a while!

Finishing up the regular season, we watched the Florida game at Buffalo Wild Wings. Ann took this picture with her phone, so it's proof that she was here rooting on the Cats to a victory this day, along with Kim and Greg as well.
Yesterday's nail biter we watched at Helenback's in Navarre with Tyler, Felicia, their friend Bill, and their daughter Nevaeh. Bradley was cranky by the time the game went into overtime, and so all the screaming when Demarcus Cousins made the last shot to send the game into OT made him cry! Otherwise he was a good little cheerleader.

It's just been announced that we're a #1 seed going into the NCAA tournament, and the Florida chapter of Big Blue Nation is up to the challenge of cheering on our Wildcats to victory! In fact, I think we just decided to host a party at our house on Thursday night to watch the first game. Anyone got any great ideas for blue and white foods??
