Beatty London had a Wednesday he will Never Forget

The Kentucky Wildcats picked up a huge victory vs. Florida in the Swamp last Saturday, ending a 31-game losing streak to the Gators.


Big Blue Nation was locked into the SEC Network, hanging onto every snap as time ticked off the clock. Some Kentucky fans had the privilege to watch the streak end up close, but no one sat closer than Beatty London.



London, a 2000 graduate of the University of Kentucky, sat right behind the Kentucky bench. Surrounded by Florida fans, London gave Kentucky his all and for his effort, the team invited him to practice on Wednesday.


For UK to recognize a fan seated amongst a sea of orange and blue, London must have been cheering on another level. Since Kentucky ended the streak, I vote we send London to sit behind the bench for every game.
