Fans of the Day Want Afternoon Notes and Podcast

fans-of-the-day

Good afternoon! These lovely ladies have requested notes and a podcast. Shall we?

— When South Carolina comes to town Saturday, it won’t be the first big matchup for the Gamecocks. Kentucky will actually be the third opponent they’ve faced ranked in the top two this season. South Carolina lost by 25 to No. 1 North Carolina back in November, and then to No. 2 Ohio State by eight points on December 17th.

— South Carolina head coach Darrin Horn called this “Kentucky’s best team under John Calipari” during his teleconference today. He said his team’s philosophy is to “just try to score the basketball.” #AnthonyDavisSaysShutUp

— Don’t forget about two of your favorite high school boys coming to Lexington this weekend. Alex Poythress and Archie Goodwin will be playing at Lexington Catholic on Saturday in the Dunkin’ Donuts National Shootout. Goodwin’s Sylvan Hills will play Lex Catholic at 7:00 pm, followed by Alex Poythress and Clarksville Northeast versus Lafayette. Start your day off with the Cats at 4:00 pm and you have the perfect triple-header for UK basketball fans.

— Despite the black cloud floating above his head in Sacramento, DeMarcus Cousins had a big game for the Kings last night in Denver. Boogie was 9-of-12 from the field for 26 points, while shooting an impressive 8-for-9 from the line. Still, the Kings — my pick to win it all — lost by 27 to the Nuggets. I was looking forward to buying NBA League Pass to follow the Kings, but unless they start winning some games, I’ll save that money  New Orleans and the SEC Tournament.

— Welcome to the NBA, Kenneth Faried.

Not a bad way to score your first NBA points. Check out this block, too.

— On today’s radio show, Matt and the gang talked about Marquis Teague, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, and whether or not Mountain Dew can kill a mouse. Have a listen…

    Clearly a mouse stuck in a Mountain Dew can would be killed. I thought the question was whether MD would dissolve a mouse.

    2-Mountain Dew can kill a mouse? not sure about that, but I know it will kill a hangover.

    I’m thinking it may be more the Loratabs than the MD

    No one said anything about Mountain Dew killing a mouse. The question is, “Would Mountain Dew eat a mouse carcass?”

    This looks like a very sad Drew Franklin. Pre-weight gain of course.

    It was sad to watch boogie play last night. He lacks a lot of motivation and walks up and down the court. I wouldn’t want him on my team.

    My ninth grade science teacher told us about the dissolving properties of soda by putting a small ball of hamburger in a bowl and covering it with Coke. And that was almost 50 years ago. That’s why I drink iced tea.

    When I worked at Lowe’s during college we would open different sodas and put a three inch nail in each to see which would dissolve the nail the fastest. The winner = Coca Cola Classic. I refuse to drink any type of sof drink. Just think of what that is doing to your body.

    Any type of soda will disolve squashed bugs off a windshield with little or no streaks, I’m just not sure MD would completely disolve a mouse. Now it could disolve something that ran down the leg of a certain Basketball coach we know.

    Probably if you just put sugar and carbonated water together, it would disentegrate
    and dissolve any carcass. It’s the combination of the sugar and the salts that breaks
    down everything from skin to bones. It’s not something so bad about any brand
    of soda. It’s just the nature of what’s IN the soda. Enjoyed in moderation,
    sodas won’t hurt you. But Americans aren’t so good on “moderation”.

    Anyone notice that Puke losses to Temple and ESPN has it on page 17 of 18. If the Cats lose it’s front page news and is shown multiple times. I guess Ratt Face owns some of ESPN like he does the NCAA and officials!

    #13, you do realize a nail and human body are not the same thing and they react differently to being exposed to different things, right? For example, if you put water on steel it will rust. On the other hand, human tissue will not rust when exposed to water.

    #29, news flash, college guys, guys in their 20’s and old guys are thinking the same thing. Don’t be mad you are the one in the front that that no one is interested in. But again, can we get more pics of #1.

    #29 – I hope you are hot, because EVERY guy, regardless of perversion, age, or marital status, ranks the uptight girl last if they are not. Just a tip….
