    I think similar to yelling, “BRASSOW” during sexual intercourse, we should start a trend to yell, “RICHIE” when we steal an item.

    Speaking of books, I just finished reading “Cornbread Mafia” this past week. Great book and true story on the largest domestic marijuana growing operation that was located in Marion County in the mid 70’s and 80’s. Crazy that of the 70 individuals arrested, not one broke a code of silence and probably 75% were from Marion County. A few busts totaled over 280 tons and had a street value of $4-5 billion dollars. In-freakin-sane!!!

    Matt you obviously don’t know much about Willie Nelson if you don’t think he had “early work.” He did and it was much different than his most popular music. Ryan, you are correct my friend.



  43. real uk fan
    10:22 am April 30, 2012 Permalink

    To say that the game at IU is good for college basketball, shows a severe lack of knowledge of college basketball. It is never good to hold a game in an environment which might cause physical harm to UK students and fans. Simply not a good idea and it needs to be stopped before something terrible happens.



  44. BlueFins

    Ryan, Hoosier fans are a bunch of gangsta’s and thug’s. And because they do not know how to act in public we are not going back to their place to play. So you need to get over your corn fed self.

    Matt, that’s normal for book stores. I worked at Borders in Washington DC for five years before they went out of business and that type of thing was a weekly occurrence. My very first customer when I started there was a guy buying a playgirl sandwiched between two business magazines.

    That story reminds me of my first year in music school and I was pretty naieve. This was before gays and lesbians had really started coming out in droves. There was a tall beautiful black woman, makeup, dress, heels, purse, etc., then she went into the men’s restroom and I was truly shocked. His name was Truby and he had a beautiful tenor voice. It was my big welcome to the arts scene.

    MATT I walked into Lowes in Lexington this weekend. At the entrance was this 20 something guy decked from head to toe in his L’ville gear, which is fine. It was the facial hair that caused me to react. Yes it was the “line beard”. I immediately thought of your constant “line beard” mocking and couldn’t help but chuckle. Based on the smirk I received from my chuckle, I couldn’t help but think this guy angrily listens to KSR daily 🙂

    A funny Willie story is back in the early 2000’s, Willie was at a party in Nashville and someone alerted him that his mansion in Nashville was on fire. Willie raced home and went inside to retrieve two items: his old guitar, Trigger, and his stash. When people asked him why he did it and what would he do if he could only rescue one of the prized items, Willie responded, “I didn’t have to decide…they were in the same place.” Classic Willie.

Wal-Mart, Towne Square Mall, you name it, the Indiana fans were there wearing their IU shirts with pride. Bottom line,Indiana is back. Like it or not, they are back and we don’t need to run and hide. We’re better than IU and will continue to be. If we stop playing them, we’ll look like cowards and Hoosier fans will never stop with their crap about UK being scared. Don’t give me the revenue crap. One home game at IU once every 2 years IS NOT going to break the bank for UK. IU wants some, lets give them some. Peace.
