Kentucky basketball is more than just basketball, it’s a family affair. Our earliest memories are often centered around Cawood, the TV and Tom Leach listening and watching the Cats.
Corey Jones had this song come to him today about his dad. It covers some good memories he had from driving with his dad to watching the Cats.
Make sure to listen to the opening, a heartfelt story. Well done Corey.
Here is “This One’s for You”
Kentucky Basketball is Family
We recently received a heart warming message from David Richards about Sheila Richards.
Here is part of that message:
“My mom has been the biggest UK fan all of my life. She lives for Coach Cal and the Cats. Was wondering if she could get a shout out on your page or a card sent to her on her birthday February 15. I as well as my whole family would appreciate it more than you know.”
Here is Sheila with her favorite UK blanket and a prized picture from Coach Calipari sent to Sheila.
Those that know Sheila and work with her know she is always positive and brings the sunshine every day.
We wanted to share the love with her on her birthday. So we sent her a card with a special made pillow just for Sheila!
David sent us this message after she received her special gift.
“She had the biggest smile on her her face she was so excited. You made her day!!!”
It’s fans like Sheila that keeps the family of Big Blue Nation together and pumps us all up for the next game. Our message to Sheila today is to keep cheering for our Cats as we head into March for another Kentucky run in the SEC tourney and the NCAA. We wish you the best and as always….. GO CATS!
We love you Sheila! – Kentucky Crazies

Owensboro, KY came through again even with a big storm on the horizon.
The line wrapped around the building as the Big Blue Nation faithful waited to see Jamal Murray at the Wildcat Wearhouse.
Some had been there since 4:50 am to make sure they were the first in line. As always, it was a family affair with grandma and grandpa, the kids, the grandkids and all of #LaFamilia of the #BBN

A massive crowd waited for a late arriving Tyler Ulis. A 2 hour wait. But, that didn’t stop the fervor and excitement from the crowd. It actually grew during the 2 hour delay.
Tyler couldn’t have been more generous with his time and made some dreams come true.
Once again, the take away from this signing is the passion, the love and the family atmosphere that can only be experienced in Big Blue Nation. #BBN #LaFamilia

From their BGEast Little League GoFundMe.com Page:
“The Bowling Green, KY East Little League 11&12 year olds won the Great Lakes Championship defeating Wisconsin 13-0 on August 15 and are headed to Williamsport for the World Series!! No team from Bowling Green has ever made it to the World Series. It’s pretty amazing that they are 1 of only 16 teams in the world still competing.
The cost for the team and parents is expensive as many parents must miss work without vacation time. Our goal of $20,000 is intended to defray the cost of travel and hotel for the 13 players, parents and siblings. This team has worked extremely hard to get to the World Series and your support is greatly appreciated.”
