Kentucky fans change ‘Duke Road’ sign to ‘UK Road’ (Picture)

Typically, the type of antics that you see in the photo above are reserved for Tobacco Road. Between the big North Carolina basketball schools like UNC, NC State, Duke, and Wake Forest, fans and students are always pulling pranks on one another. However, the NCAA tournament has a way of bringing out the best in all fans. Now that Duke has fallen at the hands of a No. 15 seed and Kentucky’s road to a national championship just got that much easier, some Wildcat fans decided to change a “Duke Road” sign to read “UK Road” in Lexington.

The act of vandalism certainly isn’t on the same level as poisoning a 130-year-old tree or anything like that, but all I can say is it’s a good thing GPS devices have become so common. If you’re in the Lexington area some time in the near future, be sure to have an iPhone handy. Navigating can be difficult around tourney time.

    It’s obvious that Kentucky fans, especially the UK alumni, think that “UK” is the correct way to spell “Yuck”, which is clearly how they feel about their own city….oh, wait, city?….actually, Lexington is barely a backwater hamlet….emphasis on ham..BTW,.good luck , UK in your next, probably last, game in the NCAA tourney.You really don’t want to win the tournament, since it would be SO embarassing when all the KY victories would be vacated by the NCAA in a coupleof years. Live by the Cal, die by the Cal.
