92-year-old fan bleeds UK Wildcats blue

(Continued)

GLASGOW, Ky. — “She also wears UK pajamas,” Browning said, “She probably has 10 to 12 tops.”

She even has a UK-themed Christmas tree.

“The Christmas a year ago, she was in a nursing home because she broke her hip,” Browning said. “We took her Christmas tree out there and set it up. It has blue beads and blue ornaments and blue bow and UK ornaments. I think everybody in the nursing home went to come see her tree.”

Jones said after her husband died 30 years ago, she started watching games with her family.

“My husband never cared for sports and we never watched it when he was living ... ,” she said. “Years ago, I wouldn’t have thought I would get so into a ballgame.”
