  1. ClutchCargo

    Back off, Chiefs!

    1. Realme


    2. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Matt House nooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!

      Well, we knew this day would come if UK starts winning. If he moves on, should the new DC be the LB coach that came from the Colts after the way Josh and company played?

    3. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I meant we knew it would come as far as assistants in general being pursued, but especially House after the way the D played.

    4. ClutchCargo

      I definitely don’t want to lose House, but it might hurt worse if they were coming after White or LeBlanc. Those guys have been difference makers with OLBs and DL.

    5. runningunnin.454

      Hope we don’t lose Devonshire.

    6. Realme

      At least we can be confident in Stoops on defense. Whoever he gets if House leaves, it will have his own character and philosophy too.

    7. J-Dub421

      I hate to lose House, or anyone on our staff really. Devonshire already signed with us and sent in his paperwork.

    8. runningunnin.454

      I hope Gran wasn’t listening…low blow.

    9. ClutchCargo

      I would think losing a position coach would affect a player more than a coordinator. But yeah, Devonshire is signed, sealed, delivered. There’s an ear worm for ya this morning.

    10. RealCatsFan

      More Stevie Wonder, Clutch? ๐Ÿ™‚

    11. runningunnin.454

      Stevland Hardaway Morris,
      good song, don’t mind that one stuck in my head.

    12. runningunnin.454

      I was listening to XM ’60’s channel one day, and the song that stuck in my head was, “Today I Met The Boy I’m Going to Marry”.
      Ouch. But, Darlene Love was great.


    Nothing like an overdriven mic to start a Friday!
    Covers the nose whistle.

    1. Iamheasyouarehe


    2. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      My iHeart didn’t open right away. What happened?

    3. Realme

      Phew, I can hardly listen to this.

    4. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Never mind, I can hear the static.

    5. CATandMONKEY

      Show sounds worse than an iPhone mic.

    6. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      “Yea, cuts through the crowd just like a wedge
      Ohh, can you feel the static?”

    7. RealCatsFan

      So many contacts being made
      We’ve got up front fanatics
      Tearing down the barricade
      To reach the stage
      Can you feel the rage?

    8. RealCatsFan

      cg, Standing Hampton was one of my very favorite albums back in HS. Thanks for jostling those memories – might have to dial it up for the ride home!

    9. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I have that on Sammy’s Greatest Hits CD & scanned into my iTunes. I wasn’t a huge fan of Van Hagar, but Sammy’s solo stuff, including that song, kicks major booty.


    A few years ago there would have been a Radio Shack within two miles.

    1. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Yep, yet another casualty of Amazon (and some other factors, but mostly Amazon IMO).

    2. J-Dub421

      Radio Shack was toast long before Amazon.

    3. Realme

      Radio Shack was one of those places all kinds of people went into, but you never saw anyone buying anything.

    4. J-Dub421

      I feel like Best Buy was instrumental in the demise of Radio Shack.

    5. Realme

      Better selection, nicer staff, better prices… I can see why.

    6. ClutchCargo

      Radio Shack was a great place to buy parts when I was tinkering with electronic stuff. But that’s about all it was good for. Hard to stay in business like that.

    7. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I agree about Best Buy, etc., so I guess Amazon drove the final nail. I read an article about Toy R Us and how they had made some bad moves before Amazon became the behemoth that was their final nail.

    8. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door


      BTW, my college English teacher said that it should be “Toys-R-We”. Always the grammarian he was.

    9. RealCatsFan

      I heard that a well known rapper was going to buy Toys-R-Us and reopen it as We-Be-Toys-N-Sh1t. ๐Ÿ™‚

    10. ClutchCargo

      I used to call it We R Toys and We R Babies, back when the kids were really young.


    Use the pad on the input. thanks.

    1. Iamheasyouarehe

      I don’t think Matt is techno savvy.

    2. CATandMONKEY

      Hanging a photo is high-tech for Matt.

    3. runningunnin.454

      But he can take care of your cars.

    4. Iamheasyouarehe

      Does anyone really think Matt could hang a picture?

    5. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Like I’ve said before, I’m no handyman like I wish I was, but compared to Nosewhistle I’m Bob Vila & Gas Monkey Garage.

    6. RealCatsFan

      Iam, maybe he could, but would it be straight? Using a level would be WAY beyond his pay grade. ๐Ÿ™‚

    7. CATandMONKEY

      He is trying to hammer a tack nail straight into the wall without using a hanger.

    8. Iamheasyouarehe

      RealCats I think he would have to rely on his girlfriend.

    9. RealCatsFan

      What’s Matt going to do when she moves to NYC?


    We need Helmet Guy!

    1. J-Dub421

      Time to beat “Messessebee Schtate.”

    2. J-Dub421

      A week from tomorrow we take on the low-down, dirty, snitches of Tennessee.

    3. RealCatsFan

      Did someone say Helmet Guy? ๐Ÿ˜€

      Damn, those were some good times!

    4. RealCatsFan

      And I challenge anyone to watch that video and not crack a smile.

    5. CATandMONKEY

      Thanks RCF!!!

    6. CATandMONKEY

      Gosh was that at least six years ago?

    7. J-Dub421

      Love that video, it’s too funny. Wow was he hammered.

    8. RealCatsFan

      C&M, that was in 2012, so yeah, more like 7 years. I would like to go back and live that whole year over again!


    1/4″ to RCA?

  7. Realme

    Have they said anything about trying to fix the sound? I decided not to torture myself.

    1. RealCatsFan

      Seems better now.

    2. CATandMONKEY

      It is better but not standard(which is a sketchy, low-bar to begin with.)

      Sounding decent now at 1036.

    3. Realme

      Yeah, that’s better. Thanks.

    4. Realme

      I’m sure having to use earbuds makes it worse.

    5. RealCatsFan

      Realme, yep, it does!

  8. J-Dub421

    If LSU can beat MSU in Starkville, then so can we.

  9. RealCatsFan

    Oh no, we’re doomed! Ryan is doing the post game show.

  10. runningunnin.454

    Thought Penny was going to win a game last night; but, they blew it.
    Thought IU was going to win a game last night; but, they blew it.
    Ha ha.

    1. Iamheasyouarehe
    2. RealCatsFan

      Still just can’t see why Wiseman is going to waste a year of college BB at that dump.

    3. RealCatsFan

      rg, but the other college coaches are still jealous of his NBA experience and totally intimidated by him. I could tell that’s what Cronin was saying to him when he shook his hand after his team beat Mempiss. Surprised he didn’t ask Penny for an autograph. ๐Ÿ˜€

    4. J-Dub421

      I’m just jealous of Memphis rockin’ 13-10 record.

    5. runningunnin.454

      In a weak conference…the Tigers and Bearcats both looked terrible; long stretches with no buckets.

  11. Iamheasyouarehe

    With Vick taking a leave of absence from KU basketball we should be able to put a little more distance between theirs and our all time wins record.

    1. J-Dub421

      I’m dying to know what it’s for.

    2. Iamheasyouarehe


    3. Iamheasyouarehe
    4. RealCatsFan

      Iam, think it was a butthurt KU fan? I have to laugh, because if UK was actually paying players, why are they not getting all of their top recruiting targets?

    5. Iamheasyouarehe

      RealCats, that’s what I found so funny, they are maybe the biggest cheats in recruiting.

    6. RealCatsFan

      Yep, the FBI is going to be sniffing around Bill Self’s hairpiece. ๐Ÿ™‚

    7. J-Dub421

      If it was a KU fan, they have some self-awareness. They just got busted paying for players.

    8. J-Dub421

      * need to have some self-awareness.

    9. runningunnin.454

      Hilarious outrage that the NCAA wouldn’t clear a player that was paid to go to Kansa$$ to suit up the week of our game.

    10. Iamheasyouarehe

      That hairpiece is one of them high dollar pieces.

    11. Realme

      Someone fix ours and spell Kansa$$ like RG.

    12. Iamheasyouarehe

      Wish I knew how to do that, that’s a great idea Realme.

    13. RealCatsFan

      The poo has been sliding off of Teflon Bill for many years now. I think it is about time for some of it to stick.

  12. Realme

    Matt’s lady is moving to New York. Wonder if he will try to keep her long distance.

    1. Realme

      Whoops, RCF already mentioned that.

    2. Iamheasyouarehe

      I think she’ll find that’s not far enough away.

    3. Realme

      You just made me actually lol.

    4. RealCatsFan

      He will have to call her on a regular basis to send sweet nose whistlings her way to keep her company.

    5. Realme

      He will probably love living like a bachelor most of the time but still having a girlfriend.

    6. J-Dub421

      That’s Matt’s dream scenario, Realme. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. runningunnin.454

    Speaking of MLB, Frank Robinson passed away yesterday. Only player to win MVP in both leagues, and first black MLB manager.

  14. gnbkats

      About time for a new scandal.

    2. ukgrad83

      Plus รงa change, plus c’est la mรชme chose..

    3. RealCatsFan

      I actually know Tyra personally – went to high school with him. I don’t know him well, but he always seemed like a stand up guy. Don’t know all the background on this issue, but at least it sounds like he is trying to get in front of the issue before it blows up. The fact that I find it hard to dislike Tyra like I did Turtleneck kind of takes a little bit of flavor out of the rivalry.

  15. RealCatsFan

    Ugh, dook vs. University-6. There goes my vote for the giant sinkhole!

    1. J-Dub421

      Sinkhole! Sinkhole! Sinkhole!
