If you don’t already know, now you know: I am a lifelong, diehard fan of the University of Kentucky basketball team (Lexington native, class of ’99, etc.), and last night, my beloved Wildcats defeated North Carolina to advance to their first Final Four since 1998. And since this is their first Final Four since I’ve had a blog (I dunno, I might’ve celebrated the ’98 championship on a usenet newsgroup in UK’s computer lab or something) and since this is my blog, I’m going to use up some bandwidth telling you what an awesome weekend this was — UK beat the top-rated team in the country and the hottest team in the country in two pressure-cooker games over three days — and how excited I am for next weekend, when they’ll play for the National Championship. Well, first they will play Connecticut in the national semifinals, but hopefully they’ll win that one and play for the big trophy. Anyway …


Oh … music content? OK, here’s Jay-Z hangin’ with the team in the locker room after yesterday’s game. Boom!
