JODIE MEEKS UPDADTE: MY SOURCES ARE TELLING ME THAT JODIE MEEKS MUST MAKE HIS DECISION TODAY. MY TOP SOURCE (WE’LL CALL HIM CHRIS T.) SAYS THAT ECONOMISTS ARE PREDICTING THIS WILL BE THE LEAST PRODUCTIVE DAY IN KENTUCKY HISTORY. MY SECOND SOURCE (WE’LL CALL HIM THOMAS B.) SAYS THAT IT IS AMAZING PEOPLE HAVE NOT LEARNED THEIR LESSON FROM THE JOHN WALL SAGA.

So, private schools won total of 15 of the 32 KHSAA sanctioned state team titles this season. Also, public schools won 7 out of 10 state titles in the major team sports (baseball, basketball, football, and softball). So, please stop arguing what an advantage private schools have because they recruit.
1. Look, I get that hockey will NEVER be higher than the 4th most popular sport in this country, so don’t hink I am jumping off the deep end. BUT, if ESPN ever gets back into the showing NHL games, I think everyone will be pleasantly surprised by how the game has changed. It is no longer a low scoring game as it was before the strike, as their are now an AVERAGE of 6 goals per game. It is much more wide open with upwards of 50 shots per game. And the fighting and hard hits are still there. And if you had a chance to watch Game 7 of the NHL Finals, and especially the ending, you recognize how the game has changed. Hockey fever, catch it!!!
2. Here is a very humorousarticle on ESPN’s Page 2 about the 10 cushiest (easiest) jobs in sports. And I don’t even have to make the soccer joke here, the article does is for me when it list SOCCER SCOREBOARD OPERATOR as one of the 10 with this description:
On a busy day, you might have to toggle the score button five or six times. Make sure you wear a glove to prevent blisters.
See, you can blame DJ Gallo for all the soccer hatred today.
3. Kate, of “Jon and Kate plus 8” fame, is really, really not a good mother. And make sure you spell my name right on my trophy for “Most Obvious Statement of the Year”.
4. It’s “Female Kige” talking hockey once again
