Governor Beshear is proud of Kentucky & Louisville

Governor Steve Beshear was also in attendance at Rupp Arena for the big blue celebration.

Both Governor Beshear and First Lady Jane Beshear were in New Orleans for both the Final Four and National Championship Game for the Cats.

Beshear says it was great to see the cats win the program's eighth national championship and knows the state was behind UK all the way.

"We got two of the best coaches in the country in Pitino and Calipari. Two of the best teams, and they were there. I'll tell you what, the people that weren't there from Kentucky, were glued to their television sets the whole weekend. I know the state was shut down because there wasn't anyone left to do anything,” Governor Beshear said.

With the victory, it also means Beshear won a bet with Kansas Governor Sam Brownback.

He will send some Kansas beef to Govenor Beshear.
