Louisville Magazine decided its December 2011 publication would be The Basketball Issue—smart move given how basketball crazy its market is. I contributed two pieces to the cover package—less of a smart move given that I can’t stand Kentucky’s or Louisville’s basketball teams (or obnoxious fan bases).
My two articles in the “Why basketball is bigger in Kentucky” section were
- “Because UK and UofL fans love to hate each other”
- “Because you’ll go ballistic when you read this“
Thanks to my editors at the magazine for granting me a few inches to vent. In a related story, expect a reader or two to vent in an upcoming letters-to-the-editor section.
