Murray State Is Where The Cool Kids Go

You probably don’t know that I was awarded an undergraduate degree (barely) from Murray State University. But it’s true.

I don’t blame you, though. I don’t think that I’ve ever really had much reason to talk about Murray unless someone asked me directly. And the Kentucky college town isn’t exactly the epicenter of the 24-hour news cycle for most media outlets.

Today, though, I think we can all agree that Murray Kentucky is the coolest place on earth:


As a sports fan, it’s pretty cool to click on ESPN and see a picture of a miracle Racer shot. It’s awesome to turn on the radio for the AM commute and hear Mike & Mike tease their upcoming interview with MSU’s head coach. And frankly, it’s alarming, when people at work come up to you and ask you if you went to Murray…

“Uhhh, yes?”

DUDE- That’s awesome!

Awesome? I mean yeah, there were tons of hot chicks, copious amounts of drugs and booze and a lax educational structure that was described by US News and World Report as “a real life Animal House”… but awesome?


You know what. Fuck it. It IS AWESOME.

And with Butler’s pasty white wash getting thrown at the more athletic Racers in round 2, I just might be in Las Vegas next week with Kentucky AND Murray in the Sweet 16.
