Tailgaters already pouring into Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Driving around Commonwealth Stadium, you can see the signs of tailgating already appearing.
Members of an RV club have already begun setting up. They're 75 members strong, and they're here to support the Cats.

"It costs a little to get them down the road anymore, but it's worth it when you get there," said Kentucky RoadCats charter member J.B. Ripy, as he showed us around his RV.

Ripy and his wife made the trip in from Frankfort. And if you're wondering who he's rooting for in tomorrow's game, just take a look at his land yacht, decked out in UK gear.

It's one of dozens that are a part of the Kentucky RoadCats RV Club.

"We started in '78," said Jane Stauffer. Stauffer and her husband are the last remaining original members.

The RoadCats are more than just faithful UK fans.
Through charter membership fees and a silent auction they hold each year, they also provide a scholarships to students.

And promoting camaraderie among RV-ers and good will, is just part of what the RoadCats are here to do.
Of course, they also cheer on the Cats, and are remaining hopeful for a victory in tomorrows Battle for the Bluegrass.

"It's better to be that way than the other way. You can't win if you don't think you can," said Stauffer.

To add just a little more of an official air for the big game tomorrow, Lexington Mayor Jim Gray has declared today blue and white day here in Lexington in honor of tomorrows game.
