Ladies leave your man at home
The club is full of ballers and their pockets full grown
And all you fellas leave your girl with her friends
‘Cause it’s eleven thirty and Kentucky fans are jumpin’, jumpin’ to conclusions
Thank you, Destiny’s Child, for this banger.
Every sports fan loves to jump to conclusions. When the injured star player starts walking again, we immediately think they will be in the starting lineup that night.
PJ Washington has been giving us all of the mixed signals on Twitter and is even working out with the team, but there is no word on whether or not he will play. Fear not, sports world, Kentucky fans are here to jump to the conclusion that best suits them. Every random Kentucky “news” page is losing their mind, because PJ took a couple free throws.
Free throws are the one part of basketball that requires zero athleticism. And apparently they also negate injury reports. Now, here are the two things I don’t understand from what I’ve written above: why are my fellow Kentucky fans setting themselves up to be let down? AND who is actually allowed in the club? It sounds like everyone and no one at the same time.
PJ did tweet a video of him walking earlier this week which shut down Kentucky Twitter for about 45 minutes:
Doesn’t necessarily mean he will play, but he also may not be allowed in the club. The ladies are supposed to leave their man at home, but what if their man is one of the ballers that is supposedly filling said club? Then the fellas are supposed to leave their girl with her friends. Why? So the fellas can go to the club? I thought they weren’t allowed from the first line. Anyway, I digress.
Just because PJ can do that doesn’t mean that he can do this:
Kentucky may or may not need PJ for this game versus Houston. I actually have never watched them play so I have no idea if they earned their 3 seed or got it because they played in the AAC. I know they still couldn’t win their conference over Cincinnati so I am not too worried. PJ would definitely help, but every time I have ever jumped to conclusions about Kentucky Basketball, I have been let down with the exception of 2012.
Let’s take it down a notch, BBN. Lastly, if the third most talented member of Destiny’s child ever wants to get rid of Jay-Z and wants to get the group back together, I will request an updated version of “Jumpin’, Jumpin'” with a more clear set of rules.
