    A man in Kentucky sure is lucky

    To lie down in Bowling Green.

    If Anderson County sports fans have their way, they will be lying down in Bowling Green quite a bit over the upcoming school year. Maybe as much as The Everly Brothers.

    And that's a good thing.

    For anyone under the age of 45, Phil and Don Everly were 50's and early 60's rockers from western Kentucky. Their last hit single was a song about what is now the third largest city in Kentucky.
