I’ve never been to a NCAA Tournament game before. My dad, who’s 79, has also never been to one. We are both UK fans so I bought tickets for us to attend the games played here at the Yum! Center. I was lucky enough to find a UK fan selling tickets for only $20 above face value. I have tickets for all three sessions and looking to enjoy the rest of my vacation watching live basketball.
Before I came across the UK fan, I tried Craigslist. Most people that wrote me back were Louisville fans that had bought tickets up in hopes of reselling them 30-60% higher than face value. At first I didn’t pay much attention to this. After buying the tickets I bought, it finally hit me. What a loser fan-base! What fan- base buys tickets of their arch-rival?
Let me get this straight, Louisville fans would rather spend hundreds of dollars buying their in-state rival tickets to make a quick buck? Wouldn’t a real fan base be buying tickets to watch their team in the NCAA Tournament? I can’t picture UNC fans buying up tickets so Duke fans couldn’t get them for face value. UNC fans would be paying for hotels and travel expenses to watch their Tar Heels play. Louisville fans are that worthless. Not a shock. This is a fan base that during the Big East Tournament showed up in small numbers. When they played Seton Hall, I believe I could hear crickets in the background due to the lack of fans.
This alone proves how disloyal Louisville fans truly are. They would rather make a quick buck because they know their team is “average” at best. Instead of supporting their team, they steal tickets at face value from UK fans, which are the most loyal fan-base in the Nation. Every time I think Louisville fans can’t sink any lower, they prove me wrong. I’m not even sure why they call themselves fans.
Louisville fans are what they are – fair-weather losers. I used to believe that the UK-UofL rivalry was much better than that of Duke-UNC. Nope, our rivalry sucks when compared to theirs. Duke and UNC both have very loyal fan-bases. UK has a loyal fan-base while UofL’s fan-base is a complete joke. No fan-base besides theirs would waste their hard earned cash buying tickets up from other more loyal fan-bases. That my friends, is the Louisville Cardinals way.
