You don't have to be a die hard basketball fan to know about the rivalry between the Louisville Cardinals and the Kentucky Wildcats. Some would even argue that "rivalry" isn't the proper word or phrase, but more like "mutual hatred."
Each year, the teams play each other in either Louisville or Lexington, and according to the fans, no matter the ranking of the teams at the time, it's the biggest game of the year. This season's game was as exciting as ever, held on December 26, 2015 at Rupp Arena in Lexington where the Wildcats won a close one, 75-73.
Oft times, bets are placed on this game, not in terms of money, but of pride. This was the case as two local men, Jason Cline, a Louisville fan, and Derrick Vincent, a UK fan placed a friendly wager where the fan of the losing team would be forced to wear a cheerleader's skirt from the opponent in a public place.
Cline held up his end of the deal after the Louisville loss and dressed the part. He also stood in front of the Bowling Green Best Buy store, facing Campbell Lane on Friday, February 13th for an hour holding a sign that read, "This is what happens when UK beats UL."
Needless to say, Cline was a good sport and a great laugh was had by all. Will the stakes be higher next year? Maybe a bikini instead of a cheerleading uniform? Actually, on second thought...

Jason always loses his bets, he never bets on a winner.
