tc-3 Some of Big Blue Nation's most passionate and craziest fans lined up outside Memorial Coliseum in the wee hours of the morning Wednesday to kick off the 2016 Big Blue Madness Campout, also known to fans as Tent City. The mad dash began with a false start a couple minutes before the 5 am signal, which delayed the process a bit: [video width="1280" height="720" mp4=""][/video] But everyone retreated back to the sidewalk and did it again, marking the official start of the campout: [gallery link="file" columns="2" size="medium" ids="208009,208010,208011,208012,208013,208014"] A couple of brief notes before I begin my Wednesday show prep: (1) There are still spots available in the Joe Craft Center parking lot. So if you were thinking about going but were worried about limited tent space, get on out there. There was plenty of room when I left around 5:30 am. (2) I will be at the campout tonight to film a bit for Hey Kentucky! that will air on tomorrow night's show. If you'd like to be interviewed on TV, find me! (3) Send us your selfies/photos with the KSR Tent City SnapChat filter! Use the hashtag #TentCityKSR on Twitter to share them with us and your followers. Happy camping, everybody!
