Big Blue Nation’s Three Kings?

hova-drizzy-jones

When I first read the title,Jay-Z, Drake, and Matt Jones: The Rebirth of Big Blue Nation”, I was really hoping for a collaborative Hip-Hop/Bluegrass album. Unfortunately, it’s just an article on LouisvilleKY.com, but it’s still good nonetheless.

The writer leads off with two of the biggest names in music and their love for Kentucky basketball, and wraps up his piece with some kind words for our fearless leader. Here, have an excerpt:

In his eternal effort to feed the mouths of his Big Blue Lunatic following, Jones has stepped on the feet of the mainstream media. Not because he’s necessarily a bad guy, but because that is his M.O. Jones is the Howard Stern of Kentucky; ticking people off just to see how they react. Jones is loved because of his shock-jock attitude. His fans adore him because he is Big Blue through and through. Jones’ remarks against the mainstreamers; is just another ring in his circus, and the crowd eats it up.

The Howard Stern of Kentucky? That’s a bold statement.

Read the rest here.

    Drake = a manufactured artist. Only has a career because his dad was Sly Stone’s bass player.

    If Matt is Howard, does that make Drew Robin or Ronnie the Limo Driver? We need a post that pairs up the Stern Staffers to their KSR counterparts.

    Jones certainly doesn’t have Stern’s hair. I don’t know whose is worse though.

    I guess Beisner is Baba Booey.

    Or would that be Shannon the Dude.

    “Jones is exactly what New Lexington embodies, young, smart, and hip.” And all this time I thought Matt Jones was a goofy white guy with a $hitty haircut.

    Isn’t making a bold statement like, “Matt Jones is the Howard Stern of Kentucky,” a bit shock jock in itself? Pot, meet Kettle.

     Since Matt is the Howard Stern of Kentucky now, is there any chance that you can get Megan Dills in studio and throw Mcgriddles at her backside, while she stands  in a corner?  We want video

    Matt Jones = a manufactured internet sports writer. Only has a career because his great uncle twice removed was Randy Travis’ bass player.

    Is his uncle really the bass player for Randy Travis?

    Comparing Matt to Howard stern does a huge disservice to Sterns looks. I would sue

    #14 “They deserve to be ranked as high as they are.” and you lost all your readers.. lol

    Don’t take this the wrong way but were you wasted off bourbon when you posted that? I wouldn’t care if you were, 75% of my post were drunk until a few months ago.

    #21 Yeah he got me big time.

    You may recognize ’em from the “Justified” theme song.

    Nowadays when I see “Strange Brew” I know not to read it.

    But it’s a bummer to have such a negative connotation with the name,
    cause it’s one of my favorite albums of all time!

    That article called Matt Jones “hip.” I expect to see him hop out of a Maserati wearing an Armani suit at the next home game. Entourage in tow.

    Matt = Howard
    Shannon = Robin
    Beisner = Bobba Booey
    BTI (if still here) = Scott the Engineer
    Drew = both Sal and Richard
    Hubby = George Tekai (sparse appearances)
    Drew the Intern = Fred

    Strange Brew does suck, Matt has terrible hair, and Tony Vanetti borrowed Drew’s bubble vest.

    Matt did it! Thanks Matt. :/

    Who is this JayZ fella you guys keep clogging up the site with? If he is a country singer, I never heard of him. Is he as good as Montgomery Gentry or the Oak Ridge Boys??

    Kinda of think the Stern reference is kind of stupid. Howard is actually funny. But #27, in casting, drew Franklin is either high pitc Eric or Wendy the retard. No other explaination for agreeing to gain 50 pounds
