Kentucky Wildcats got a celebrity visitor when The Hunger Games’ Josh Hutcherson stopped by for the game against the Louisville Cardinals. While at the game he got a special tribute from the Kentucky fans.

They saluted him with the “Mockingjay Salute” from the movie. The one where you extend three fingers up, holding your pinky down with your thumb. I don’t know if it was impromptu or planned, but either way it is awesome.
