Rather it's the basketball team, ESPN covering the volleyball finals, or the litany of great concert acts (or all three), Lexington appears to be jealous of Louisville once again.
That's a stupid argument. There are a whole lot of Louisville people who are disgusted by the situation as well. This isn't a UK vs UofL debate, or a Lexington vs Louisville debate. How can you live in Louisville and be happy about that arena going bankrupt so quickly? You really see that as a good thing? You really think anyone cares about the volleyball finals? As for the concerts, they could be scheduling three or four times as many concerts a year if not for the ridiculous deal they agreed to. Even the UofL fans I personally know think the whole situation is completely screwed up.
