Oh, Kentucky

So much basketball happening. Still spent from the Olympics. Hard to focus.


Meanwhile, things were pretty lively in and around Frankfort earlier today ...

  1. So, yesterday, Mercer County beat Owensboro Catholic, 67-66.

    GRC beat Elizabethtown, 42-35. This disappointed me, because I was WKU-newspaper friends with the Etown coach. I always root for him.

    Mercy beat Ryle, 93-78.

    Boyd County beat Manual, 71-53.

    This evening, it’s Mercer vs. Clark at 6:30 Eastern and then Mercy vs. Boyd. I tend to root …:

    -- old friends over people I've met, over people I've never met;

    -- McCracken County over Madisonville-North Hopkins, over other peculiar favorites (Russellville, Paris, etc.), over most everyone else, over silly grudges (Tilghman, Mayfield, etc.);

    — public over private;

    — littler over bigger;

    — town independent over county consolidated, and

    — West over South, over North, over East, over between Louisville and Lexington, over Louisville, over Lexington.

    By that rubric, I’m pretty clearly for Mercer (littler/South) over Clark (East) and Boyd (public/East) over Mercy (Louisville), then Mercer tomorrow.
