Saturday afternoons at the pool, fresh cut grass, Louisville and Kentucky football players throwing insults at one another over a game that's not going to be played for months; some summer traditions are just too storied to die.
It starts with a relatively mundane tweet from James Quick.
I can't wait to play Kentucky!! But first I must prepare for the Georgia Dome! ❗️❗️❗️#readyfortheseasontokickoff— James juice Quick (@Uno1Siete7) June 21, 2015
Next, Stanley "Boom" Williams -- the biggest champion of the "L Down" sign on the planet -- chimes in.
@Uno1Siete7 I see they made you the hype guy for this season that's what's up bro— Stanley Williams (@boom_that_guy) June 21, 2015
Louisville got hype guys instead of players they hype this morning— Stanley Williams (@boom_that_guy) June 21, 2015
Patrick Towles, who has never made any attempt to hide his disdain for Louisville, couldn't let this pass without weighing in.
Only problem? Towles did not look nearly as cool as he would like you to believe on the play in question, and Gerod Holliman (the man who intercepted Towles to end that game) was not going to let him act like it.

And finally, James Burgess, who's just over here amazed.
