SEC Tournament Pregame Party and Pep Rally in Tampa For UK Fans

Many of you have arrived in Tampa for this year's SEC Tournament to watch John Calipari claw his way into his seventh SEC Championship at Kentucky. It sucks that it's not in Nashville because Kentucky would have absolutely dominated the crowds in Bridgestone Arena, but I'm still very confident that blue will still be "getting in" Amalie Arena this week.

If you are one of those Kentucky fans taking over Tampa, you might want to join the UK pep rally being hosted by the UK Alumni Association and Tampa Bay UK Alumni Club. The pregame party and pep rally will take place on Friday, March 11, from 10 a.m. - Noon at The Sail Plaza at the Tampa Convention Center, 333 South Franklin Street in Tampa, Florida.

The cost is $15 per person if preregistered and $20 at the door. Admission will include a custom-designed UK-themed clear tote bag full of giveaway items, coupons and more while supplies last. Children 12 and younger receive free admission. Food and drink will be available for purchase. Parking will be available at the Tampa Convention Center garage for a flat rate of $12 per day. The Tampa Bay UK Alumni Club is offering custom T-shirts and sweatshirts to commemorate the event and will have a limited number available for sale at the pep rally.

As always, I can't wait to see how Blue takes over yet another city as we run through the rest of the SEC.
