Always good to be around the Gator Nation!
I’m a bit late with this post, but I had a great opportunity at the Florida-Kentucky game to spend time with good friends from the San Diego Gator Club where all of this started for me. Great people, great game and a good time had by all…in the Gator Nation.
NIght time at Commonwealth Stadium made for a great Gator Victory. The visitor’s section is in the northeast section of the stadium. It’s better to be higher up so you can see the play on the field. As it turned out, I was right behind the Pride of the Sunshine. That’s was pretty cool too! Obviously, the fake field goal which tied the game at 7-7 made the game interesting early on, but UK could never move the ball and we seemed to go on these drives of 8-9 minutes and get points. Not sure if anyone noticed, but we never punted in this game. That’s saying something.
One more time..in the corner with the team in Lexington. A great place to see a game and watch our Gators play. Best quote I read “Why Dick Vitale tweeted it could happen. And Kirk Herbstreit said it could happen. And suddenly the Bluegrass state was hooked on the feeling the team from the Sunshine State was ripe for the picking. And then the football was placed on the tee and reality visited Commonwealth Stadium. Again.” John Clay, Lexington Herald Leader.
Pretty much sums it up.
Post Game festivities at Bogarts Lounge at the Lexington Crowne Plaza Campbell House. A great live ban, Rock Steady, with a phenomenal keyboardist, David Lee Hinkle. A must see for your next Lexington, KY visit.
Patrick – we had an awesome time hanging out with you in Lexington! Thanks for hooking us up with tix from your Gator Club. Go GATORS!!
Not a problem at all. Was a great time all around. Next year Nashville.
