A new arena has just opened in Louisville, Kentucky. It’s called the KFC Yum! Center, named of course after the company that brings us Kentucky Fried Chicken (plus Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Long John Silver’s and A&W root beer).
The Eagles (the band, not the football team) opened the facility with a concert this weekend, but what the center is going to be best known for is college basketball. It will be the home court for the University of Louisville Cardinals basketball team. A ticket to a game runs about $60 for a lower level seat, and there’s a waiting list for season tickets. I’ll probably splurge on a ticket to a women’s basketball game: only $10.
