Kentucky Fans Love Louisville

One of the many beauties of college football concerns the interactions of rival fanbases. Whether it’s Penn State fans acting like a crazed mob around Ohio State students or Alabama fans discussing Tennessee, watching opposing fans mix with one another always leads to entertainment.

One such rivalry that gets overlooked — unless it’s basketball season — is Kentucky and Louisville. While neither team is on the same level, program-wise, as Ohio State or Florida, that doesn’t mean the fans can’t get after one another like they are a top-tier program and this weekend was no exception:

If I’m not mistaken, the fellow in the above video was simply giving his opinion on the city of Louisville, something he was proud to share with the stadium police as well. I’m wondering if a Cardinals fan complained or if the officer took it upon himself to investigate the shirt?

I’m disappointed in the fact the guy wasn’t heckled by the surrounding Louisville fans, who instead opted to get the authorities involved. Do you think Penn State fans would’ve reacted so apathetically? With that in mind, I’m thinking of starting a line of WWPSFD (What Would Penn State Fans Do?) gummy bracelets for such an occasion.

Men’s French Open Final Set

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal

This is the way it was supposed to be — Roger Federer going against his clay-court nemesis in Rafael Nadal. While Federer owns him away from the French Open, Nadal has been so dominant on clay, he’s actually seeking his fourth-straight French Open title. But is this the year Federer breaks through and wins the French Open, the only major title he’s lacking from his resume?

If Federer is going to win, it’s fitting he’ll have to go through Nadal to do so. To advance, Federer beat local favorite Gael Monfils 6-2, 5-7, 6-3, 7-5. As for Nadal, he breezed into the Finals handling Novak Djokovic in straight sets. Again, looking at the preceding semi-final matches, it seems like Nadal has the advantage going in. He expended less energy dispatching his opponent and, of course, clay is his dominant surface.

However, to overlook Federer’s chances her are foolhardy. I mean, he’s only been the most dominant player in the world for a few years now…

The match takes place Sunday on the Chatrier court. Oh yeah, all apologies for the quick-and-dirty NBA Finals promotional images rip-off. Although, the image does seem fitting — you know, being an individual sport, and all.
