Christina Hendricks’ Friday News and Views


Okay, you can wipe the drool off your face.

The woman in the picture above needs no introduction, but I’ll give her one anyways. She’s Christina Hendricks, one of the stars of AMC’s “Mad Men.” Hendricks plays Joan, the head secretary turned (spoiler alert!) partner, and is pretty much one of the only things that keeps Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce running. Since donning the pen necklace in 2007, Hendricks has become famous for her voluptuous figure, which totally flies against the Hollywood norm. She is living proof that you don’t have to be stick thin to be beautiful, and dangerous curves aside, Hendricks is a damn fine actress. To me, she’s the female Jon Hamm: men want her and women want to be her. Every Sunday night, I’m tempted to dye my hair red and put on a pencil skirt (ironically enough, Hendricks is actually a natural blonde).

Hendricks’ attitude towards her body is downright refreshing. She hates the term “full-figured,” and when she went to Italy to model for the first time, gained 15 pounds. While this would bring on a full-fledged meltdown for most women and would be career suicides for many models, Hendricks laughed it off, saying she “felt gorgeous”: “I would take my clothes off in front of the mirror and be like, Oh, I look like a woman. And I felt beautiful, and I never tried to lose it, ’cause I loved it.”

And we love you. Cheers to the one news and views honoree that both men and women can finally agree on. Happy birthday, Christina.

Some news and views before you go to bed…

The $EC Network is Here

Thursday was the formal launch of the SEC Network, a 24-hour network dedicated to SEC sports and programming. We’ve known about the network for a while, but on Thursday, it became official. John Calipari, Mark Stoops and Matthew Mitchell all came down for the event, which might as well have ended with the entire room rolling around in a money machine when you consider what it means for the league. The partnership between the SEC and ESPN was extended through 2034, and the network will rake in over $400 million per year in television revenue, or approximately $28.5 million per school. After the first year alone, athletic directors across the league will be lining up their bills like Ramel Bradley and Joe Crawford in Burger King bragging about their stacks (how’s that for an old school KSR reference?). What does it mean for you? If your cable or satellite provider agrees to it (they will), you will see almost, if not all, of Kentucky’s basketball and football games. Slive said that the network will air 1,000 sporting events throughout the year (450 on the network and 550 digitally), including 45 football games (3 games a week for 13 straight weeks), 100 men’s basketball games, 60 women’s basketball games, and 75 baseball games. That’s a lot of sports. In addition, there will be studio shows, analysis, news, and original programming, such as the “SEC Storied” series.

If you live in one of the eleven SEC states and your cable/satellite provider agree to it, the SEC Network will be part of your basic programming, along with ESPN and ESPN2. If you live outside of that area, it will be part of the “sports tier package,” with channels like ESPNU. Interestingly, word broke on Thursday night that ESPN will own 100% of the SEC Network, which is contrary to prior reports that the SEC would own the majority (51%) share. Interesting…

In 2014, we will get the SEC Network and a college football playoff. That makes me just about as excited as Mark Stoops in this picture from Thursday’s “We’re rich b*tch!” celebrations:


Drew Barker sets a date

On Thursday, we finally learned when the state’s top high school football player will announce his decision. Drew Barker will let the world know where he’s going to play college ball in a press conference at Conner High School on Friday, May 10th at 3:30 p.m.

In case you’ve forgotten, the 4-star Barker is the 141st best player in the 2014 class, and the 7th best pocket-passing QB in the nation. He’s got offers from a ton of major schools, including South Carolina, Tennessee, Louisville, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Kentucky. Since Ohio State offered three quarterbacks scholarships on Thursday, they’re no longer considered a threat, and many believe it is down to Kentucky and South Carolina for Barker’s services.

Neal Brown has made Barker a priority in 2014 recruitment, and if he decides to come home and “be a hero,” he will be the latest in a line of homegrown QBs to lead the Cats. Barker tweeted an invitation for everyone to attend, which the most diehard fans will read as sign the QB will choose his homestate school. Will next Friday be a Big Blue party in Hebron?


Wiggins waiting is the hardest part

Note: If you don’t want to read anything more about Andrew Wiggins, just scroll on. Apologies for addressing the most talked about subject in Kentucky sports right now.

All that being said, no new news on Wiggins. Just message board rumors that continue to swirl in almost any school’s direction. If you ask Florida State fans, it’s been a “done deal” since Wiggins visited back in February. If you ask North Carolina fans, he’s committing tomorrow. Kansas fans? “Sources say” Jayhawk. Ask us? We know that logically, he should be a Cat, but realize that anything that comes from someone other than Andrew, his parents, or Rob Fulford is a rumor. Anything else is moot. The wait has reached the point of desperation that the national media is recycling stories about Wiggins to maintain fan interest. From everything we’ve heard, Wiggins will not go the route most other major recruits do these days; in lieu of a splashy press conference, he’ll likely tell someone who will then tweet it or leak it to the press on his behalf.

For now, just take comfort in that Wiggins or no Wiggins, we are going to be good. Very, very good.

Who was that at the end of Tweet Beat??


At the end of Tweet Beat, I posted this picture and asked you guys which Kentucky sports figure it was. Pat yourself on the back if you guessed UK Hoops coach Matthew Mitchell. Looking good, coach!

Your Kentucky Oaks forecast…

Friday is Oaks Day, otherwise known as Kentucky’s day at the track. Going? The forecast looks good during the day at least, with highs in the mid-70’s. Enjoy the dry weather while it lasts. Saturday is going to be messier than Reese Witherspoon’s arrest video.

Friday’s show is one you won’t want to miss. Matt and Drew will be in-studio telling stories from Ferdinand’s Ball, which is always a good time. How good? Let this picture of Matt, Peyton Siva, and Drew be a teaser: siva-drew-matt

Did a pig just fly by my window?

    I have been following this show for a long time. Matt and Drew throwing up L’s and I know he will say Siva threw up 3 goggles and it’s all in good fun. However, the 3 goggles is not just a UK trademark. So I am not sure how low this show will sink to, but I jumping ship. There are a few other UK sites that are just as good and few sports radio stations to get my UK fix. Matt can go down the toilet with his friends slap nuts and the rest of tards. I am done.

    Just got back from the party and it was a great time. Peyton Siva is a very nice young man and as good a kid as you are going to meet. If I am supposed to hate him solely because he played at Louisville, sorry I cant do that. I hate the Cards and want them to lose every game…but when Siva is introduced to me and says, “hey arent you that guy from Twitter. I read that site and I like it,” and then proceeds to talk for 10-15 minutes with us, I am not going to be a prick. When we decided to take a picture, I suggested he throw up the L and we would do the three goggles and then he suggested, “how bout I do the goggles and you do the L just to make everyone’s head explode.” So we did. Similarly, when I told Gorgui Dieng that we covered Kentucky, he said “oh really. I like them.” But I guess I should hate him as well.

    #16 if that means you can’t read the site, then so be it…but I might suggest you lighten the heck up.

No issues with this except that even though this is your site I would avoid the comments section if I were you, it has become a good mood killer for me. Love all the posts and would come to this site daily even if there was no comments section at all. Just a liveblog every now and then when you can really screen the comments.

    I wanted to thank you ALL so much for such an entertaining show each and every day. I work at GE and it is the most boring thing to work on an assembly line and do the same motion 1,500 times a night, but you all get me through a good portion each and every night I’m there. While I can say I will NEVER throw an L up like you guys did with Siva (unless it’s placed directly in the middle of my forehead), I admire you for looking past the team rivalry and hanging with him and Gorgui, both of which I think are pretty upstanding young men.
    I have one question for you all….where do I eat in Lexington?? I’m from Louisville and a few of my people are coming down to the Sick Puppies show on sunday at Busters Billiards and would really like to have the best time possible. I would like to spend our time eating at some good grub spots and not just spending time going down the cookie list in the hotel room! There are still tix left for the show so if any of you are interested come on out, I’d love to see some good rock music with some fellow KY fans! I’m gonna try and get a photo with Sick Puppies and get them to do some three goggles! Love the work you guys do and thank you SO MUCH for any input you can give me.

    Matty–you have been doing this long enough to know not to get into a nerd fight in the comments section. No explanation needed. If you acted like most are suggesting you might as well change your name to Forde or Thameltoe.

    As I have said before, relax on the Wiggins bashing. I would hold out as long as I could if I were him. Who wants to be under the NCAA rules and regulations? Hell, some of us like cream cheese on our bagels and would prefer to not question if it is okay.

    With new agreement in place, this should start the ball rolling for each conference to give the NCAA the middle finger and start policing themselves. The added revenue will in some way be given back to the student athletes instead of funding ridiculous investigations. Glorious day to say the least.

    @kadizkat I know some people from princeton who told me I had to watch this kid so I saw him in the state championship. If UK get him it will be the best QB since Tim couch. That is regardless of barker coming. Found out he is being recruited by LSU & Michigan. Kid has a ton of upside added to his ridiculous talent.
