Father’s Day Sunday Morning Links


Fathers make us who we are; sleepless nights as a baby, teaching fundamentals as a toddler, enforcing morals as a teen. Fathers stand in front as protectors, and pave the way through obstacles. Fathers give us strength when we are weak and guide us when we are lost. Fathers make sacrifices to pass a better life on, and give us unconditional love through it all. Fathers are our heroes. The strongest person we know, and the one we aspire to emulate.

Whether you’re a father spending the day playing unlimited poker, drinking beer, and shooting guns with the bros, or rounding up the crew around the homestead for some good old fashioned family time, today we celebrate you, Dad. Thanks for all you do.

    Admittedly, I read sports stories through Blue tinted glasses. After reading Mark Story’s article I must conclude:

    1) Mr. Story’s employer has lost a phenomenal number of paid subscribers and he is building his resume to apply at the Courier Journal.
    2) He wants to prove journalists can still write anything they like and is supporting the First Amendment.
    3) He is spending way too much time with Jerry Tipton.

    Guess what Mark Story…the internet is better than the fish wrap you provide. I can’t wait until the Herald Leader is out of business.

    Speaking of “misspelling,” you misspelled Omaha.

    Ok just curious, who even still reads the Herald Liar? Or the Courier Urnal? Isn’t all breaking news on the interwebs now days. Seems like a waste of paper, time, and money to me.

    Matt you should have hired one Duke grad instead of ten UK grads.

    Stuart thinks the way you spell Omaha is Omana

    “Why Louisville athletics is better than Kentucky’s” was never mentioned, written or insinuated in the Mark Story article.

    I don’t like the guy, but his article simply calls Barnhart out for not “owning the state” as he said his tenure would compete to accomplish back when he took the reins in 2002.

    Stuart = fail
