With the dawn of a new basketball season upon us, let’s sit back and take stock of what makes the Big Blue Nation special and unique among all the various fan bases all across the country and, yes, the world. So, without further ado, I present the Constitution of the Big Blue Nation.
We hold these truths to be self evident, that all Cat fans are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of National Championships. To secure these Rights, the Athletic Department of the University of Kentucky will be devised of Men and Women, deriving their powers from the fan base, donors large and small, persons young and old with no respect to gender, race, creed, religion or lack thereof, ethnicity or nation of origin.
We the people of the Big Blue Nation, in order to form a more perfect fan base, establish Justice and promote Peace among the Citizenry, do Ordain and establish this Constitution for all to see and to behold.
Every citizen of the Big Blue Nation shall have the right to wear, without incident, blue and white clothing at any time, at any place and for any event. Congress shall establish no law preventing any citizen from wearing anything that has been blessed with having the interlocking “UK” logo or any other designation declaring the wearer a fan of the University of Kentucky.
Every citizen of the Big Blue Nation shall have right to watch, without interruption, any sporting event or athletic competition involving the University of Kentucky. Whether it be live, tape delayed, digitally recorded, or even replayed on VHS or betamax tapes, every citizen shall have the right to relive any past victories or moments from the glorious history of Kentucky Basketball.
