Nerlens Noel wants to ride the mechanical bull at Hillbilly Days


Nerlens Noel will be at Hillbilly Days in Pikeville this weekend and he has his eyes set on the mechanical bull. Nerlens was at Hillbilly Days last year — it’s not his first rodeo — but couldn’t ride because of his injury. This year is different. This year he is ready to go eight seconds.

Find him out there on Friday from 10:00 am to 1:00 and again from 6:00 to 8:00. Then he’ll be back Saturday from 10:00 am to noon.

Someone please get video.

Listen to Nerlens’ call to Kentucky Sports Radio at the end of the second hour of today’s podcast.

    uhh….the sixers just gas-canned an entire season while red-shirting NN. Gotta believe they may have something to say about this venture

    i’m sure the Sixers love this idea…

      LOL…exactly what I thought when I read this. But he’ll be fine ; it’s not like anyone has ever gotten hurt doing that. /s

    He’s the best. I would have loved to have had seen him experience the ride this past year’s team had.

    Is it Drew Franklin day or what?

  5. Lil' brother's at it again

    has anyone else heard about the rumor that the twins are having a presser today? Not sure if someone’s leg yanking or what.

    Whoever is running that thing please put it on its easiest level!

    Presser’s are not rumors, if there is a presser it requires press to be publicly informed of this. I hope they don’t have a presser, when do you ever see a presser to tell the world they are returning…last one I remember was Sean May and company doing that UNC and they all returned and won a title and had another presser to say goodbye. That is rare.

      I know… it was a rumor OF a presser. That’s what I was asking….Thanks

  8. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

    I’m sure someone from the Sixers already told him it better be on the same setting as the dolphin ride at Wal Mart.

      I’ll bet the Sixer’s GM will be operating the controls
