The picture to the right is of Florida Gators’ linebacker Darrin Kitchens. But that’s not the picture of Kitchens you want to see. The picture of Kitchens you should be looking at is here. Go ahead and click that link; you won’t regret it.
On Wednesday night, after the Gators suffered a shocking and embarrassing defeat at the hands of the Louisville Cardinals, Kitchens stood alone. The reserve LB stood and sung the alma mater with the Florida band. He didn’t have to–it’s usually a celebratory moment after victories–but he did anyway.
So today, one day after we watched 60 minutes of ugly, we salute something wonderful. Something profoundly orange and blue. And something–I’ve been told–Kitchens has done before.
There was a lot not to like about the final Gators’ game of the 2012 college football season, but I’ll choose to enjoy this for a long time. It’s hard to find anything wrong with that image and we shouldn’t be trying to. Darrin Kitchens, Gator Nation salutes you.
