June 21st: On this date...
... in 1991, tributes continue to pour in for Kentucky's most famous supporter, Albert "Happy" Chandler, who died June 15th at the age of 93. Not only was Chandler an ardent UK supporter, he was the former governor, senator and commissioner of baseball. He would always be seen sitting in the front row of World Series games wearing his blue "K" hat. The singing of My Old Kentucky Home, though, is my favorite memory of the Happy one.
