So, apparently there is a conspiracy theory sweeping through Big Blue Nation. The theory, is that UPS is working in cahoots with the University of Louisville to make the Cats look bad. Does anyone really need to do anything to make their fan base look bad?
After reports of vandalism at the YUM! yesterday, at the hands of the .00000001% of their fan base who are a little over the top, which included spray painting, seat destruction, and a sprinkler line being pulled down,.... I'd say not.
Anyway, why does the lunatic fringe of BBN think this? Well, it's simple really. UPS has sponsored a logistics commercial featuring Christian Lattener's shot against the 1992 Wildcats. UPS has a hub in Louisville, not Lexington. So UPS must hate the University of Kentucky.
Wait.....what? Check out the clip below to hear a real live conspiracy theorist giving Mandy Connell the ole what fer, right after her station had played the audio version of the UPS spot. Also, check out he UPS response and comments section here.
UPDATE: Dead Spin is now reporting on the "Conspiracy"
