7. Other Information to Share:
On, on, U of K, we are right for the fight today,
Hold that ball and hit that line;
Ev'ry Wildcat star will shine;
We'll fight, fight, fight, for the blue and white
As we roll to that goal, Varsity,
And we'll kick, pass and run, 'till the battle is won,
And we'll bring home the victory.
8. Final Thoughts:
As the developer and editor of the eNewsletter, I felt that I had the right to develop this special edition. It does take some work to produce this publication every two weeks -- if you want to help, PLEASE let me know. And if you don't cheer for the Cats, I might even consider adding some red next time.
And Go Cats!
