My First Trip to Rupp

Well I knew it would be tough, but I did it. I donned my head-to-toe orange and white garb and headed to the University of Kentucky’s pride and joy, Rupp Arena.

I had hoped for the best, a UT win over UK. I had even thought it would at least be a good game. But alas, my unpredictable Vols fell short. Really short.

But this post isn’t about my Vols losing to the Cats, it’s about my first trip to Rupp Arena.

For those of you who haven’t been, the best way to put it is the basketball version of the University of Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium. Kentucky Basketball is similar to UT football. The crazy passionate fans, the packed house, and the sea of the schools color.

So all in all, despite the beat down, a good time was had by all. Thanks to Mr. Jeff Allen for letting me tag along and for going easy on me and my orange fetish.

Here’s hoping for a split series…When the Cats come to Thompson Boling Arena! Go Vols!
