The Kentucky Blood Center is sponsoring a blood drive called the Big Blue Slam! Kentucky fans are encouraged to come out to donate blood, save lives, and beat the Florida Gators! This kickoff event will start at noon on January 28th at Rupp Arena. Please go to and click on the Big Blue Slam icon to schedule your donation.   If you decide to donate on Monday, you will be eligible to take a shot on the court in Rupp Arena! You will also receive a Big Blue Slam t-shirt, commemorative pint glass, and have a chance to win an entertainment center. As a special offer to our readers at, the first 3 people that show up and give blood will win a free UK StraitPinkie T-shirt. Everyone that shows up and donates will get a free koozie. All you have to do is send a picture of you donating blood with your Pinkie up! Send entries to @BrianLewis_SP on Twitter.
