KSTV: Trading Places

On last night’s episode of KSTV, Matt Jones transformed himself into a U of L fan and gave an interview to, well, himself I think. Tony Vanetti stars as Matt and Matt stars as a strong resemblence to the creature you’ve encountered so many times before: the U of L fan.

Also, Tony dressed up like a UK fan and gave an interview of his own. You can watch it here.

    I do go to UL games because I live in Lousiville and I cheer them on, as long as it is not a game where they might jump ahead in the poles, win more games than us in the tourney or of course when they are playing UK. However, under no cicumstance would I ever be caught dead in a UL shirt. When I go to UL games I wear a reebok shirt that says basketball or a Bellarmine Basketball t-shirt. Matt you should be ashamed…even though I admit it was funny and a great representation of Mike Mara.

    Great job Matt! That is your typical Card fan! LOL I like how the “L” sign doubles for Louisville and “LOSER”! That was an award winning performance.

    Did Marra sell any UL memorabilia in exchange for discouts at the tattoo parlor? I think an NCAA investigation is in order.

    I don’t get KSTV – enjoyed that clip though. Humor makes the rivalry more fun!

    Many moons ago a friend gave me a RED sweat shirt for Christmas. (He was a IU fan) All I can say it kept me sooo warm. Little did he know he got me the best fire starter I ever had.

    Why did you say you were from Trinity? One bad picture and now you bring the whole place down? $20 says Trinity’s football team could beat UK’s (im kidding…sortof)

    Not cool Matt.

    Joe Mazulla must have been granted his 7th year of eligibility by the NCAA and despite his experience he was still shown the P-Knowle Code by Louisville. Ugly, ugly game.

    The “L” is the universal SHOCKER symbol! 2 in the pink and 1 in the stink!

    I love seeing Tardinal chicks do it, and all those Downs looking fat Tards in their man jerseys doing it too. Hilarious!

    Matt only succeeded in pissing a lot of Trinity people off. Do you realize that school is split between UK and UL fans? Jones, just because Trinity raped your little high school in everything doesn’t mean you have to drag their name through the mud. Go Rocks. Go Cats.

    21. You seriously (and obviously) don’t get it, do you? Weak attempt by a “VILLE” fan hiding behind ‘Liggins’ as a screen name.



  34. cats11

    15. Agreed. Trinity could beat UK and UL on the football field (also only sort of kidding).

    32. I’m certain Matt realizes everything you said – what surprises me is that you don’t. His point is that kids (white kids mostly) from Trinity (or St. X… or any other private school) look ridiculous when they try to act like something they’re not. Got it? That’s why making fun of them is so easy.

    That was funny as hell. I am also a Trinity grad and am not fond of the Trinity hate, but I get his point and still found it hilarious. Good job Matt. And yes, there is easilly as many UK fans as UofL at Trinity, but that’s not the point.



  45. drewster
    11:49 am January 27, 2011 Permalink

    37. I went to both public and private schools, but what difference does that make to my point… which you completely ignore? Take the private school thing out of the equation — when you act like something you’re not — ie. typical flat billed, line bearded “THE VILLE” fan, you look ridiculous.

    I too am a Trinity Grad. I don’t like the fact he makes fun of my alma mater but, I understand his point. I also made fun of the “hardcore gangstas” that were dropped off by their parents in a BMW in the morning and lounged by the pool at Lake Forest CC on the weekends. Funny stuff! Keep it coming

    77…what are you talking about…Jones isn’t trying to be black here, so you obviously have some sort of racist thinking. Have you ever once looked around at Louisville fans…and i would hope louisville has more diversity, its THE BIGGEST CITY in the state. Although it isnt the most educated, that award goes to Lexington. But you would never know how diverse Louisville is..anyone with sense lives in the east end, and suprisingly is where the majority of UK fans are…most lville fans reside in the West end or southend…like the dirty dixie or preston highway, oh we cant forget lively shively.
