If you're a true basketball fan, then you know what I mean when I say "The Shot". That's the half-court shot Christian Laettner took to beat Kentucky in the semi-finals in 1991. It's a classic. It's the best play ever in NCAA basketball to me. I know..State fans will argue that 1983 team had the best. Ok it's close but Duke's is better.
What does any of this have to do with Mitch McConnell? He's a Senator from Kentucky. Let me say this classic line...
UK is two letters short of greatness: DUKE!
Bet I get some hate mail on that one!
Anyway, good old Mitch's campaign made a major screw-up. And here it is...just another reason I don't like him. :)
And Involving Christian Laettner's Shot? Oh, Man...
The Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) campaign made a classic stupid mistake Tuesday, using footage of Duke celebrating after Christian Laettner's immortal shot to beat the Wildcats in 1991.
