Whether you support the Cards or the Cats, you know the game is today at 4:00 p.m., airing on CBS. If you were lucky enough to score tickets to the game in Lexington, consider yourself the envy of everyone else!
In case you've been living under a basketball deprived rock, the University of Louisville Cardinals and the University of Kentucky Wildcats have one of the longest standing and most fierce rivalries in the world of college basketball. Let's keep it classy, Louisville: no couch burning, no matter who wins, and try to remember that's we're all from Kentucky and the world doesn't exactly need another excuse to think we're backwoods hillbillies who do things like burn couches and get into fights at a dialysis center over college basketball.
Also, consider supporting a local bar, like Checks, Monkey Wrench, The Back Door, or Zanzabar to watch the game. Get some good local grub, some great beer, and settle down for what's sure to be an exciting match.
Make sure you check Louisville.com for the outcome of the big game!
