    Laettner and Pitino commercial re: the Shot.

    The advertisement will show Laettner following Pitino around his house making “the shot” over and over to torment him.

    At least kentucky fans give "the shot" its proper due!
    so my question is this: How does the Big Blue Nation feel about the Vitamin Water campaign taking the most famous shot in college basketball history
    Seriously, if you ever want to annoy a Kentucky fan, I mean make his/her face turn red, steam come out of their ears and their blood boil, just walk up and whisper "Christian Laettner" into their ear and step back (quickly)!
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    I actually have a picture of The Shot on my phone for just this purpose.

    Looks like Rick is doing okay at Louisville with that house...
    2009-2010 can't come soon enough.

    Can't wait to see it! I think this might take away some of the bad taste in my mouth after that hbo Tar Heel lovefest.

    Kentucky Fans Lack a Sense of Humor - An Example

    UK fans lack a sense of humor. Here's an example:

    Several months ago a co-worker was having a baby and had a "contest" to name the baby. The co-worker is a big UK fan so I submitted an entry with the first and middle names of "Hurley Laettner". She turned my name into HR for creating a hostile work environment.

    This has got to sting at UK.

    Laettner is the devil.

    The shot is a low point in UK history.

    Pitino is Benedict Arnold, now coaching at Louisville.

    Ooooh. Let's put all three together and have some fun!

    This is all at UK's expense.

    While a seething Pitino discusses the shot, Laettner should be shown eating a BBQ sandwich and discussing his favorite BBQ.

    I got you babe

    Personally, I would have loved an ad playing off of 'groundhog day'.

    The same shot over, and over, and over...day from Kentucky Hell.

    Looks like the Kentucky fans do not approve such message.

    I didn't even have to read that far to get a laugh... the first post is by someone named "The Fake Gimel Martinez." Awesome.

    Unlike most Kentucky fans, I think this is going to be hilarious! I just hope BigBlue Nation and their almost certain rage over this doesn't make bigger news than the commercial.

    I feel Kentucky exorcised the ghost of Christian Laettner with the 17 point, less than ten minutes to go comeback win in the 98 regional finals, on the way to the National Championship.

    I've posted it before but here is a great link to the UK vs Duke history:

    If being a fan were logical, we'd all be Duke fans but some of us were born to a different blue.

    HR told me to foster a caring environment, particularly given her pregnancy.

    I hope you cared for her, and more importantly for her child, by giving the baby a Duke t-shirt at the office baby shower. It is important that the innocent baby be taught the correct blue from birth.

    I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!
    Maybe Shaun Dockery and Seth Greenberg will be in the sequel.
