100 50 More Great Americans: A KSR 4th of July Special

50-more

 

Last year I gave you 100 Great Americans on the 4th of July; this year I’m adding 50 more. Enjoy…

––––––––––

Cpl. Matt Bradford

Matt Bradford is an American hero right here in Big Blue Nation. He was wounded in Iraq in 2007 by a roadside bomb, costing him both of his legs and his eyesight, and then he re-enlisted into the Marines three years later.

Bradford now lives in Kentucky where he, like you, spends most of his time rooting for the Kentucky Wildcats.

Jonathan Brandis

Starring alongside Chuck Norris as Barry Gabrewski in Sidekicks, Brandis taught young kids in the 90s that bullying will not be tolerated and asthma can’t stop you from reaching your kung-fu dreams.

Rest in peace.

Wendy Davis

Davis recently held an 11-hour long filibuster to block Senate Bill 5, legislation that would create new abortion regulations in Texas. She did it without peeing, amazingly.

Please, tell us how you feel about it in the comments section. We’d all love to read your opinion.

Anthony Davis Sr.

Thank you, sir. Thank you.

North West

The daughter of two mentally unstable parents, baby North West is destined for a life of celebrity. One day she’ll look her parents in the eyes and ask what the #%^& they were on when she was named.

It’s going to be awkward when she sees that sex tape, too.

“Mama, who is Ray J?”

Slim Whitman

KSR fell in love with Slim Whitman at the SEC Tournament in Nashville earlier this year, long before we learned his country music was used to kill the aliens in Mars Attacks. He’ll forever be linked to anything we do.

Rest in peace.

Mark Stoops

UK’s new head football coach and avid letter-sender. Stoops saved the program from the fiery depths of suck in his first few months on the job, and in turn, woke up a sleeping Big Blue Nation.

“I’m highly motivated to build this program to national prominence.”

Charles Ramsey

He opened the door but couldn’t get in that way. He kicked the bottom. Now Amanda Berry and two other missing Cleveland women are home, ten years after their kidnapping.

He was just eating his McDonald’s, too.

Bill Gates

By giving away billions of dollars he made with Microsoft, Gates has saved millions of lives across the world. He has promised to donate half of his wealth to charitable organizations over the course of time.

The Combs Brothers

Oscar and Ira Combs from Hazard, Ky. know more about Kentucky basketball than you and I could ever attempt to learn. Spend one hour with either of them and you’ll walk away with stories you’d never hear anywhere else.

Spencer Levin

Spencer sat out the 2013 PGA Tour season with an injury (and to party with us at the Maxim Clubhouse) but he’ll be back in 2014 to dominate the game. #TeamIZOD

Win ’em now, Tiger. Your time is almost up.

Bud Collins

Longtime tennis commentator for NBC Sports and ESPN. You’ve heard his voice during every Wimbledon since 1972.

Nerlens Noel

Shut up, haters. Just shut up.

Saul Berenson

Born in rural Indiana, Saul Berenson has spent over 35 years with the CIA. He recruited, trained, and placed Carrie Mathison in the field, now he leads the manhunt for whoever is responsible for (insert Homeland ending).

Roger Ebert

Ebert continued to work and review movies while battling cancer. In 2012, when he relied on tubes for his daily meals, he watched over 500 movies and wrote reviews for half of them.

Rest in peace.

Drew Barker

The single most important football recruit in UK history? The way he’s keeping this class together and recruiting others to get on board, that may not be too farfetched.

Oh yeah, he’s a KSR blogger, too. Bonus points.

Rihanna

Because Adele is from England.

George W. Bush, magician

We recently learned George W. Bush would occasionally perform magic tricks in The White House.

“Hey Condoleeza, look, I’ve got your nose! Looky-there, it’s right there in my hand!”

“Dick, it looks like you’ve got something behind your ear. Yup! It’s a quarter!”

Dr. McGillicully

The asshole credited for creating the oh-so delicious Fireball whiskey. We owe him a thank you, and he owes us an apology.

Sen. Francis Underwood

If you have Netflix, stop what you’re doing and start watching House of Cards. If you don’t have Netflix, stop what you’re doing, purchase Netflix, and start watching House of Cards.

Thomas Edison

He invented stuff like the light bulb and the phonograph. And auto-tune, I think. Maybe not.

Barack Obama

This should be fun.

Rick Rubin

Along with Russell Simmons, Rubin is the founder of Def Jam Records. You might’ve seen him recently in Jay-Z’s “Magna Carta Holy Grail” promo that ran during the NBA Finals. He’s the bearded guy on the couch.

Ronald Reagan

The 40th President of the United States, the oldest ever elected.

Hunter S. Thompson

An American journalist and author born in Louisville, Kentucky. He challenged boring journalism by involving himself in his stories, often with a little help from his good friends, marijuana and cocaine.

Thompson committed suicide in 2005. His ashes were fired out of a cannon, which is awesome.

Kige Ramsey

I often wonder what YouTube would be today without his contributions. I also wonder if we’d all have acne if not for his discoveries in dermatology. And would any of us know how to kick a soccer ball or do a pushup?

Benny The Jet Rodriguez

Benny was the best player in the neighborhood; he taught Smalls to throw and catch and convinced Squints and the boys to let Smalls play. He went on to play professionally for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Clara Barton

Humanitarian; founder of the American Red Cross. She helped others before helping others was cool.

DeMarcus Cousins

Booige is the best center in the NBA and one of Big Blue Nation’s favorites. He has the opportunity to represent America soon.

Chris Kelly

The miggida miggida miggida Mac. The miggida miggida miggida Mac Daddy.

Rest in peace.

Stephen Foster

Known as the ‘Father of American Music’, Stephen Foster wrote “My Old Kentucky Home” in 1852.

Marlana Vanhoose

Stephen wrote it. Marlana perfected it.

Howard Stern

The self-proclaimed ‘King Of All Media’, Howard’s net worth exceeds $500 million. And he only works three days a week!

Whoever keeps watching The Fast and The Furious movies

You’re out there somewhere, otherwise there wouldn’t be a seventh moving coming out next summer. We may never understand you or why you continue to watch, but your dedication hasn’t gone unnoticed.

John Adams

The first Vice President and the second President of the United States, Adams was a statesman, diplomat, and a leading advocate of American independence. He was once quoted as saying, “Abigail got that good booty.”

OK, I made that last part up.

Al Bundy

Four touchdowns in a single game, folks. Four.

Susan B. Anthony

A prominent American civil rights leader who played a pivotal role in the 19th century women’s rights movement to introduce women’s suffrage into the United States. She was one of the important advocates in leading the way for women’s rights to be acknowledged and instituted in the American government.

Landon Donovan

Never forget.

Django

Django is a freed slave who traveled across the country with a bounty hunter to rescue his wife from a cruel plantation owner.

The ‘D’ is silent.

Jay Bilas

Young Jeezy’s fictional Twitter account.

Gus Johnson

Anyone opposed to this?

Didn’t think so.

Honey Boo Boo

Because she exemplifies everything America is doing wrong.

Carl Winslow

When he’s not fighting crime and writing tickets in Chicago, he’s putting up with his pesky and annoying neighbor, Steve. Carl and his wife, Harriette, have three children: Eddie, Laura, and Judy.

Little known fact: Carl is the only character to appear in every episode of Family Matters.

George S. Patton

A general in the United States Army best known for his command of the Seventh United States Army, and later the Third United States Army, in the European Theater of World War II.

He famously told his troops, “No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. You won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country.”

Jonas Salk

Salk was an American medical researcher and virologist, best known for his discovery and development of the first successful polio vaccine.

Rest in peace.

Shannon The Dude

Without Shannon The Dude, all booty shakers would be equal and Big House Bourbon wouldn’t have a voice.

And we can all agree, booty shaking deserves a champion.

Evan Speigel and Bobby Murphy

Co-founders and designers of SnapChat, the single greatest piece of technology the world has ever seen. SnapChat changed the way we communicate forever.

Snap me: drew_franklin

Omar Little

Omar was a renowned stick-up man who robbed drug dealers in Baltimore. He lived by a strict moral code and never deviated from his rules, foremost among them that he never robbed people who were not involved in “the game”.

John Robic

Known worldwide as The Man With The Golden Hair, Robic is the real ‘John’ on Kentucky basketball’s coaching staff. Calipari has been lucky to have him since 1988.

Audie Murphy

Murphy was one of the most famous and decorated American soldiers of World War II. He was presented the Medal of Honor for his defensive actions against German troops at the Colmar Pocket near Holtzwihr, France. During an hour-long siege, he stood alone on a burning tank destroyer, firing a machine gun at the enemy. Wounded by enemy fire and out of ammunition, Murphy climbed off the tank, refused medical attention, and led his men on a successful counter assault.

Like a boss.

 

Happy 4th of July, y’all.

    Rick Rubin is a musical genius !! He produced Johnny Cash last 4 albums, produced the majority of Adele 2 albums, and apparently just saved Kayne West new album (ok maybe he should have let that one go since Kayne sales dropped 80% in it’s second week.

    #2 I’m neither against or for abortion, but we have got way too many stupid people in the world & stupid has taken over. You should come up with a better alternative to help control stupid.

    Why do I get the idea you dullards dislike Obama because of his party affiliation and not his similarities to Dubya? I somehow doubt “indefinite detention,” “open-ended drone wars,” or “surveillance state,” would come up in your list of reasons you dislike Obama.

    All of us humans were at one time a little hunk of tissue in our mothers’ wombs. Wendy Davis was trying to make it possible for more people to terminate those little hunks of tissue that only have two options: They are either 1. aborted and thrown out in the trash, or 2. are born and are human beings. If you are reading this, you were one of those hunks of tissue at one point in your LIFE. Wendy Davis, to me, is not a great American.

    11:27 pm July 4, 2013 Permalink

    How is Wendy Davis on here for fighting for wanting to allow women who are 7 months pregnant to get an abortion? I respect her passion and fighting for what she believes in. But of she is in here for a filibuster then definitely the big boss Rand Paul should be on here no doubt.

    I don’t get how some of you don’t realize there isn’t two separate parties. There is no Democrat or Republican, those are only names to promote division within the population. It’s like pro-wrestling, Ryback is gonna hit Cena when the cameras are on, but just as soon as they’re back stage he’s giving him a very oily deep tissue massage to make the boo-boo feel better.

    They’re all puppets for the shadow government of ancient reptilian aliens known as the Ancient Annunaki, the cold blooded master race who mated with cavemen to create us in the first place. They want us distracted with “right wing” “left wing” mumbojumbo so they can strip our planet of natural resources, and you guys are foolish enough to let it happen. You can follow the bloodline of every president back to ancient Mesopotamia, proving that the space lizards are the ones ultimately in control.

    Open your eyes people.

    Like most Americans, I am ok with pre-viability legal abortion but I think abortion post-viability should be illegal except if the life of the mother is at stake. So I’m not a hard-right on this issue nor do pro-choice folks like me – both extreme sides hate my views.

    But since you asked for input from us: One of the “objectionable” parts of the Texas law was to require abortion clinics to have the same safety standards as ambulatory surgical centers in the state. Which I had always assumed was already the case – but in most states it isn’t or it isn’t enforced (see history behind the Gosnell trial). I didn’t realize this I guess because I avoided knocking someone up until I knew she wanted to have my child. Silly me.

    Seems to me she wasn’t fighting for abortion rights. She was fighting for the right to have medically unsafe abortions not regulated like any other similar medical procedure.

    Children have to tell a parent to get their ears pierced, a wart removed and can’t get a tattoo – but not abortions. If abortion is just a medical procedure, then treat it as such.

    Now we claim having abortions without medical regulations is part of abortion rights too? Funny, I thought the point of legal abortions was so they would be medically safe. Now we have the abortion rights politicians complain when they are required to be safe.

    Rand Paul’s filibuster was must more impressive. And it was much more important (and the people he complained about killing were actually born – we can agree that they are real people right?).

    Hunter S. Thompson? He was such a great American he had to get high all the time and kill himself. Self evident.

    Knowing that you don’t care what other people think, I am probably wasting my time writing this, but I cannot stay silent on you putting Wendy Davis on the list. It’s not about party affiliation, but whether you advocate murder or not. Maybe one day when you grow up and read The Good Book, you will understand and not be so casual with your views and thoughts. Its disgusting that you make fun of people making comments in this section but yet you put this crap in the site. this is suppose to be about UK sports. May God forgive you.

    Medically speaking a fetus is a human being. There is no denying that. At conceptions we have our final 48 chromosomes and human DNA. We are just in one stage in life. So yes I’m a hypocrite for being OK with early term abortions – unlike most pro-choice people I’ll admit it. But I can’t get past the fact that once the child can survive outside the womb, how is that not just murder? 20 weeks is long enough to figure out if you want to kill your child. Get it over with already before the child is capable of living without you.

    The Texas law only limited abortions after 20 weeks – which is pretty close to possible viability outside the womb. Wendy Davis is no hero. She wants viable kids to be killed in unregulated clinics.

    Not mentioned about Susan B. Anthony was she was a strident pro-lifer/anti-abortionist by today’s standards.

    #41 – I am trying to save you. Can’t you see the galaxy is in danger? The Annunaki want you to think this is dumb, you are falling right into their trap! Until we band together as humans and respect each others opinion and right to live their life the way they want (as long as they don’t physically harm or rob the rest of us) then we are doomed.

    WHAT DO YOU THINK HAPPENED TO THE DINOSAURS?!

    They realized that Republicans and Democrats were all part of the same shadow government and they morphed into beams of pure energy (leaving only their skeletons to drop where they stood) and ascended into the universe, traveling from galaxy to galaxy learning the true purpose of existence.

    Once we as a species are able to do the same we will ascend as well, leaving the next dominant species to rise up and question how the humans went extinct.

    62, the fact that you still think calling someone gay is an insult shows that your IQ, and most likely your age, are hovering right around your post number.

    If I was gay, I wouldn’t have any problem admitting it. Your kids probably agree. People like you are disappearing faster and faster, and in a few short years, it’ll be like you were never here.

    Two of the biggest problems with the whole abortion debate is a lack of critical thinking skills by many of the individuals who attempt to exert their will upon others and the a utilization of a narrow based strategy with a throughal understanding of the broad based implications.

    Before I begin it is important to understand that pro choice does not equal pro abortion. In fact, I would arguee that almost no one is “pro abortion.” Let me repeat that, simply not supporting a pro life agenda does is not the same as supporting abortion. Individual who do not support a pro life agenda may simply disagree on the manner in which the agenda attempts to achieve its goals but not necessarily the goals itself.

    Not that we have established pro choice does not equal pro abortion, it may come as a surprise to learn that at its simplest form those who are pro life and those who are pro choice actually want the same thing. To better understand this, lets examine the root objective of the pro life agenda. Surprisingly it isn’t to stop all abortions, that is simply just a method. The actual overall goal of a pro life individual is to prevent unwanted pregnancies. Through the means of stopping abortions these individuals try create a value and desire for the future child by either allowing the mother to develop these for her child or by allowing the mother to develop these based on an understanding other adoptive parents have these for her child. Evidence of these is illustrated by laws requiring the mother to heart the heartbeat/have an ultrasound and by the often reminded option of adoption.

    Much like the pro life individuals, people who support pro choice also do not want to see unwanted pregnancies. The difference is found in the methods for which they attempt to achieve this.

    Sadly, both groups appear to often waste their energy fighting about each other and their differences rather than working together to achieve their common goals.

    If we were able to prevent all unwanted pregnancies then there would never be the need to have another abortion. While I am well aware this is not a simple feat, the logic behind its reasoning is flawless. Zero unwanted pregnancies would equal zero need for abortions, medical emergencies, rape, and incest excluded.

    How do you achieve preventing all unwanted pregnancies? Beats the he!! out of me, I have no clue. However I do know that making all abortions illegal does not prevent all unwanted pregnancies.

    Yes it’s long, but the constant fighting found with the abortion debate has taken it so far off track from what it should and really is about that to find your way back to the root goal can’t be explained in a tweet or slogan.

    Stop unwanted pregnancies and you stop abortions. It would make sense to me that without stoping the cause of abortions (unwanted pregnancies) then any attempts to stop the effect (abortions) would produce the desired results (no more abortions.)

    Drew, please stay with your sports commentaries; beyond local sports you may not have anything to contribute. And, I do enjoy hearing your sports opinions and want you to have a successful career. Please, don’t make our minds wander to that pesky Peter Principle as you digress from your area of intellect.

    Wendy Davis is not a great American. She wants to empower others to commit legal murder. She’s fortunate her parents were pro-life.

    Wendy Davis’ #1 donor is Annie’s List, an abortion rights group. No politician should be on this list. She was just paying the piper. They’re all controlled by donors. Check it out. It’s worth a Google.

    What about Edward Snowden? He has more courage than probably 1,000,000 Americans combined. He’s sacrificed as much as any Founding Father. And now he’s stateless, will probably be murdered by his own government, and is hated on by the state-run media because he “leaked” (info that has long been public ironically) intel and made a moral judgment that it’s wrong for the NSA to spy on and violate the privacy of Americans without getting a warrant.

    He should occupy spots 1-40. The final 10 would pale I’m comparison with such greatness. Even “liberals” should side with Snowden. Those against him are pure authoritarians and pro tyranny.

    I guess the only way to make our opinions matter is to share them with the sponsors with a clear message that for as long as they support this message we will not support their business. In my case my business will not do business with them. Now I don’t believe me leaving the sponsors would change anything, but if 50 refused to support their business, that might get their attention. Just saying.

    As I have said before, I love the info on KSR. However, Matt, and of course Drew, are very liberal. In a state devastated by the War on Coal, and yeah there is one, they continue to support Obama and other liberal causes. I wonder when this all shakes out, and it will, and it becomes a bigger issue than just little blurbs in a column, how the large contributors to UK athletics will feel about it? Joe Craft ring a bell anyone? Drew and Matt, enjoy your little time as the mecca of Kentucky sports information and reporting. When you have pissed enough people off, and your getting close, your information pipelines will be closed as if Obama did it himself.

    Really starting to get tired of this site. The writing is no where near as witty as it was just a few short years back. The writers intentionally troll their own fans as a means to amuse themselves, as with this post and the Bachelor posts. Just tiresome! I go the site for UK related news not for this drivel. Some on the list are great examples, others just divide or are not even American. I know it is slow, but this is just stupid.

    Wendy Davis deserves mention NOT because of her beliefs, but because she actually walked her walk and stood up for her position. She didn’t attempt some ridiculous legislative end run or attempt to misuse the press-as has become so common. She utilized the existing legal structure within a state dominated by her political and ideological rivals.
    No matter the content of her argument, she displayed courage.

    Completely unnecessary to interject politics on a sports site. It makes people cringe. Just like a politician makes me cringe when advocating congressional intervention on a sports-related issue. We all want to keep politics out of sports therefore sports should stay out of politics. Know your lane and stay there. Stick to sports, otherwise you upset people by writing nice things about a late-term abortion defender (Wendy Davis) yet all that comes to your mind regarding one of our best presidents (Reagan) is that he was an old guy. I liked your articles and KSR better when I didn’t know you were a liberal.

Am I not only a murder, but a serial killer?” – GOD

    When the liberal writers at KSR spout off with some of their liberal propaganda it encourages conservative responses, which in turn incites the liberal defenders of those positions to call those with conservative opinions rednecks, hillbillies and KKK members. When challenged by a conservative, name calling is always the first response of a liberal. If you disagree with them you are a racist, hillbilly, KKK member or neanderthal.

    If anyone from outside the state reads the comment section they can justify their own opinion of Kentuckians as rednecks, because hey, even their own people call each other rednecks!

    The narrow focus of this site should be Kentucky Sports. When you write about anything else you are embarrassingly out of your knowledge zone.
