Finding UK’s #1 Fan: Featuring Tony Austin

Photo: Andrew Bishop,

Now we have the second installment of “Finding UK’s #1 Fan“… this time featuring Big Blue Fan Tony Austin.

Over the years I’ve connected with so many people who claim to have the biggest collection of items, or the person has tried to convince me they’re UK’s #1 fan. It always starts with, “I bleed blue” and ends with a conversation around a collector’s item they got at an auction “down in Kentucky”, but who is UK’s #1 fan? Bob Wiggins who is known for never missing a game is often spoken of when discussing Kentucky’s #1 fan. Unfortunately Bob passed away this year.

I want to keep Bob’s memory alive by searching for Kentucky’s #1 fan. I connected with Tony Austin via Twitter a few weeks back and some of his collection is “#1 Fan Worthy”. Tony is a great guy who lives in Colorado and more importantly… bleeds blue.

Here is a video I did with him which includes several pictures and video clips of his collection. Enjoy! GO CATS!

Now, if you still believe you’re UK’s #1 Fan, send me an email at or shoot me a tweet @andrewbishup, and we’ll setup an interview.
