We Bleed Blue Here

If you’ve ever visited Kentucky, you know that we bleed blue.  No matter where you go, you will find someone wearing that distinctive blue shade.  I’m a fan of the color blue, so I’m happy that this is the unofficial color of Kentucky rather than yellow or something awful like pink.  No offense to you pink lovers; pink and I have never exactly been “simpatico.”    

In any case, I am not a fan of the Wildcats (sorry guys, but go Penn State!).  But I don’t need to be  to feel like I belong here.  The Big Blue Nation is a large community, almost like a family, and they are very excited about that and the team they love so much.  And that makes me excited. 

But when I say that we bleed blue, I’m not just talking about the Wildcats.  Blue is a color of loyalty, and that is the very word I would use to describe the Wildcats fans.  I’m sure if you gave a paper cut to a Wildcat fan, they would bleed blue.  

And all this loyalty stuff has me thinking- How loyal am I to what I believe?  Do I hang on to it, despite what people say or think, through thick or thin?  Am I unshakeable?  If you cut me, would I bleed blue for my cause?  

As I stare out my window at the bright, blue sky, I ponder these questions and more.  I’d like to think that I’d bleed a loyal blue when pushed.  After all, that’s what we do down here.
