Wow UK Fans and Their Booze


It’s definitely #UKHateWeek on Twitter and we’ve been having fun with it here @HailFloridaHail. Lots of good zingers for Gators and Wildcats to enjoy but apparently we touched a nerve with this tweet:

Bourbon is simply cheap whiskey. Don’t drink cheap whiskey.#UKHateWeek

UK fans lit up the mentions on that one.

Here’s a sampling of the good ones.

 

I think the most offensive #UKHateWeek tweet was @HailFloridaHailcalling bourbon “cheap whiskey.” Let’s not get personal, now…
@HailFloridaHail: Bourbon is simply cheap whiskey. Don’t drink cheap whiskey. #UKHateWeek” Sometimes it’s really easy to spot an idiot…
@HailFloridaHail Bourbon is just cheap whiskey?? I’m assuming you’re an Old Crow kind of guy. Maybe KY Tavern?

 

@HailFloridaHail: Bourbon is simply cheap whiskey. Don’t drink cheap whiskey. #UKHateWeek” I’m offended.

 

Oh no he didnt. The gauntlet has been thrown. RT @HailFloridaHail: Bourbon is simply cheap whiskey. Don’t drink cheap whiskey.

 

@HailFloridaHail Your coach came from KY

 

Internet, this guy RT @HailFloridaHail: Bourbon is simply cheap whiskey. Don’t drink cheap whiskey. #UKHateWeek

@HailFloridaHail: Bourbon is simply cheap whiskey. Don’t drink cheap whiskey. #UKHateWeek” Coming from the guy who drinks vodka.

@alex_mcg@hailfloridahail#CardNation has #BBN ‘s back on this….pic.twitter.com/hxK4p3x5

 

Kentucky fans should blow these two Florida b****es up!! #BBN#RivalryWeek@HailFloridaHail@JOEYD1

 

@NotJerryTipton I’d like to see what you have to say about@hailfloridahail tweets lol

 

@eeebruh@hailfloridahail Poor, poor infidel.

 

@CoachCoburn@HailFloridaHail Bourbon is whiskey with class.

 

Umm, really?

 

@HailFloridaHail Ouch, my feelings.

 

God bless Mr. Julian. @ecalvert2001 Get your facts straight. Pappy Van Winkle is the most expensive bourbon on the market.

 

@HailFloridaHail Troll of the day, by far. #UKHateWeek#GoGators

 

@HailFloridaHail Jameson’s is comparable in price to a mid range, average bourbon. Good try

 

@HailFloridaHail: Bourbon is simply cheap whiskey. Don’t drink cheap whiskey. #UKHateWeek” this guy needs a bourbon education.#false

 

@HailFloridaHail@CoachCoburn Nice. Jameson’s actually.” Jameson’s? That shit has estrogen in it. Sack up, drink bourbon.

 

@CoachCoburn @hailfloridahail I guess he doesn’t realize they use old bourbon barrels to make Irish whiskey.

 

All good responses and I’d like to thank the great fans of Kentucky for being good sports.

But the winner is:

You can call us incest, insult our southeastern counties and call my mother names. BUT YOU LEAVE BOURBON ALONE! @hailfloridahail
