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