Now if you are in Hawaii for Christmas like we were my senior year for Thanksgiving, then that is fine. That is a little more bearable.
I don't think I went home at Thanksgiving. That is hard because it is the first big holiday of the year that you are away. Coach Joe Hall always did a great job for us getting together, but you miss being home with your family.
Now the trip Kentucky is taking to Las Vegas this Thanksgiving is a good trip for the guys. Even though you know you are not going to be with your family, Las Vegas is an exciting place. I don't know how much the players will get to experience, but it is a great trip and hopefully the kids will win two games. Maybe some of them haven't been to Las Vegas before and this will be a great memory for them.
I know out of all the things I remember about Thanksgiving, I remember that time I was in Hawaii. It was a lot of fun, especially when we won the tournament. I think it will be the same for Kentucky in Las Vegas this weekend.
