At some point during last night's Kentucky - Louisville basketball game, I wondered about the non-racing nickname themes of the two teams from the center of the American horse racing world.
By the way, Tribe tweets from the ADTSTC account, so I'm not just talking to myself in the majority of these tweets.
How is it that neither UK or UL have a horse racing themed nickname? I guess Murray State got dibs.— Matt Gardner (@pressthepace) March 29, 2014
Right on cue, JP and Tribe were prepared with their suggestions...
@pressthepace It is is a mistake...One of them should have been something horse-related.— JP Fanshawe (@jpfanshawe) March 29, 2014
@pressthepace the UL Red Derbies? The UK Mr. Prospectors?— SBNHorseRacing (@SBNHorseRacing) March 29, 2014
.@SBNHorseRacing The Closers. The Railbirds. The Gamblers. So many options. The Stalkers. Eh , maybe not that one.— Matt Gardner (@pressthepace) March 29, 2014
@pressthepace uh yeah. Let's stay away from stalkers.— SBNHorseRacing (@SBNHorseRacing) March 29, 2014
