I am proud to call the Bluegrass State my home away from home.
Of my 34 years of life, I've lived almost 16 of them in Ohio. Kentucky falls at second place with a grand total of ten glorious years.
I say glorious years because it was in those years that I earned a college degree (Go Cats!), celebrated two NCAA basketball championships (Go Cats!) and learned how to drink bourbon (that deserves a Go Cats!, too).
I learned how to win at Keeneland ($1 exacta or trifecta box with an extra horse), got hooked on Hot Browns at Ramsey's (yay, fire trucks! $1 beers at the original location) and OD'd on "Mayday Pie" from Missy's Pies and royal iced cookies from Magee's Bakery.
I ate vegetarian at Alfalfa's, and I have a very funny story about how a bouncer let me in to Marikka's once upon a time.
If you've never been to Kentucky, then you really have no idea how awesome a state it really is.
And that's why the Kentucky For Kentucky campaign is trying to finance a "kick ass" Super Bowl commercial.
Three good ol' Kentucky boys are trying to crowd source enough money to get primo advertising placement during the 2012 Super Bowl.
You can read more about the Kentucky For Kentucky project and make a contribution here, or check out their Facebook page.
As a proud graduate of the University of Kentucky, this is something I can get behind.
Kentucky has a lot that makes it awesome. Let's tell the world about it.
