I wonder about people's sports allgience sometimes these days. How is it, that somebody born and raised in the state of Kentucky, can become a Dukie? Of for that matter, how is it that anybody raised in state A can root or cheer for a team in state B, and love it when they face/off with state A? Here's part of the story: I have a friend who's been anti-UK since the early 90's. This doesn't make a lot of sense. He was born and raised in Kentucky. Add to the fact that his own dad is U.K. medical school alumni, and this makes the situation all the more puzzling. He's also a big front-runner, but that's a whole 'nother story. I also have other friends who are North Carolina fans and whatnot. I know there are a lot of Michigan fans out there. Wouldn't it, in the kindest of terms, piss you off if a friend who lived and grew up with you all through school was an Ohio State Buckeye fan?
