I am not a college sports fan for the most part. I do not ike Basketball, I am more of a football fan, then when it comes to football, I prefer the NFL to college football. I do not endorse any team specifically. I am not one of those fans who pushes their beliefs/team spirit on other people. I am not badmouthing any sport, any teams, or anyone who is a fan of the sport. I could never do it, and don't feel like I can judge others negatively who do like certain sports. It's all a matter of personal opinion! That being said...
I live in Kentucky. HUGE Basketball following around here! Between the University of Kentucky Wildcats and the University of Louisville Cardinals, it is all out war pretty much around here in March! They don't call it March "Madness" for nothing! :o) I work in radio... we air every football and basketball game for both Universities. I sit in an office just outside the sales area. ALL day, EVERY day (at least is seems lately), all I hear conversation wise in what we call the "sales pit" is UK this, and UofL that.... etc, etc, etc... yadda yadda yadda... You can imagine how many times my eyes have rolled sitting in my office! But that's ok... I keep my mouth shut, and smile, and move on. I have pretty much learned to tune it out!
So imagine the little hairs on the back of my neck, and the goosbumps that followed when a gentleman that I work with said... "Can you make a UK notepad-thingy for me to keep in my studio for notes and such?" (Yes, he said, a note-pad thingy.) It went against everything I was thinking in my mind, but I said "yes." I donot want to be affiliated with any particular team, just because I don't want people saying "you'll make a UK, but not a UofL?" You either choose sides around here, or stay out of it! I choose to stay out of it... even my husband is a UK fan... as you can imagine... I CAN'T WAIT FOR BASKETBALL SEASON TO BE OVER!
Nonetheless, after my little rant here, I have made a UK journal. I looked up the logo online and hand cut the letters, and drew the wildcat paw prints. No copyright infringement intended. No Cricut used here, just layered the blue and white paper. I little silver pen-ing and that's it!
P.S. To stay neutral, when anyone asks me who I root for in the game of college sports, I simply say.. Go Irish! I had a brother who went to Notre Dame. That's my safe house!
Thanks for looking!
