Cardinals Fans Upset With Louisville Gas And Electric For Lighting Building Up Kentucky Blue

If you're a Cardinals fan who wants to avoid all-things Kentucky blue over the next 24 hours, you may want to avoid the LG&E Center in downtown Louisville Friday night. The gas and electric provider has lit up the building in blue to celebrate UK's Final Four appearance. 

It won't surprise you to hear that the move has not gone over well with Louisville supporters. Check out the responses the company got on Twitter.

LG&E was quick to defend itself when asked if it'd done the same for Louisville in 2013.
