  • Kentucky Kind of Christmas: Gifts for the UK Fan

    Can you believe we are almost halfway through November? I can't believe that Thanksgiving is in two week and Christmas is around the corner. With Christmas coming up, I figured I would put together several gift guides to help give you gift ideas for your loved ones.  Lexington is home to the BBN aka the Big Blue Nation. If you follow sports then I'm pretty sure you've heard of it. The Big Blue Nation is the fan base for the University of Kentucky's athletic programs, specifically the men's basketball program, the women's basketball program, and the football team. 

     

    Can you believe we are almost halfway through November? I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is in two week and Christmas is around the corner. With Christmas coming up, I figured I would put together several gift guides to help give you gift ideas for your loved ones.

    Lexington is home to the BBN aka the Big Blue Nation. If you follow sports then I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of it. The Big Blue Nation is the fan base for the University of Kentucky’s athletic programs, specifically the men’s basketball program, the women’s basketball program, and the football team.

    According to figures released by the NCAA on Wednesday, UK led all schools with an average of 23,361 fans per home basketball game. Nearly 400,000 fans watched the University of Kentucky men’s basketball team in Rupp Arena during the 2015-16 season, marking the 18th time in the last 21 years that UK has led the nation in home attendance. Since Rupp Arena opened for the 1976-77 season, UK has ranked either first or second in average home attendance every season.

    Don’t know what to get the UK fan in your life? Well, I compiled a list for both men and women to make it easy for you!
