Friday Night Notes brought to you by Kevin McCallister

homealonelogo1

Tonight’s news and views are brought to you by one of the greatest Christmas characters of all time, Home Alone’s Mr. Kevin McCallister. Everything about this movie is great, especially his performance. It is, in my opinion, the best Christmas movie of all-time (Yes, even better than A Christmas Story). Its use of the movie Angels with Flithy Souls within the film in so many creative ways is nothing less than genius. How hard is it to have a outstanding first film and an even better second one? Only a few films follow up with such a solid sequal and this was one of them. With his performance in the first Home Alone, Macaulay Culkin was the youngest actor ever nominated for a Golden Globe and went on to start in other great films such as My Girl.

On to the notes, you filthy animals.

___________________________________________

-Louisville was pushed to the brink by Western Kentucky (4-9). The Cardinals were down with as little eight minutes to go in the game, but a 12-0 Ville run stopped any chance of an upset. The Hilltoppers should be commended for staying with the Cards, but there’s no way they should’ve had a chance to win this game. Louisville hosts 16th ranked Georgetown on Wednesday… good luck with that.

December 31st is inching closer and closer…. seven days.

-The entire state of Kentucky is more anxious for Coach Calipari’s present to Big Blue Nation than getting their own. I wonder what it is…. we can only guess. What say you?

-As a second round pick in the NBA draft its a tough road to making a NBA roster, especially with a shortened offseason. UK Alum DeAndre Liggins defied those odds and made the Orlando Magic roster. He joins his former teammate Daniel Orton as two Kentucky players on the roster. Congrats DeAndre.

Coach Calipari and his son Brad traveled to Chicago last night to watch the class of 2013’s top ranked player, Jabari Parker. Parker and Simeon beat the Whitney Young Dolphins 62-55. Jabari didn’t put as much work in as usual, but still had a decent stat line of 15 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 blocks. Cal had some recruiting help with future No. 1 pick Anthony Davis and former No. 1 pick Derrick Rose (a Simeon alum) in attendance for the game.

Former Cat Chuck Hayes is back with the Sacramento Kings after a heart scare and a voided contract. Hayes visited a Cleveland heart clinic and was deemed ok to return. Hayes is the real winner after the whole ordeal, getting an extra million dollars in the deal for his troubles.

The Wildcats are in the top 3 choices for No. 12 point guard (scout.com) Kasey Hill. Hill, a Florida native, is also considering Louisville and UF. Hill’s love of Cal’s dribble drive system is what he cited as his willingness to possibly sign with the Cats. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s former coach is currently coaching Hill so hopefully that connection helps him land with the ‘Cats.

-ESPN researcher Jason McCallum thinks that the ‘Cats should be the number team in the nation. Among the 16 ESPN analyst that voted he was the only one to put Kentucky in the top spot.  He had North Carolina and Ohio State in the second and third spot, respectively. Thanks, Jason. You’re the best bro.

-Former UK Coach and current Texas Tech Billy Gillespie is giving back to the community. He purchased and gave out 500 turkeys in Lubbock, Texas at a United Food store. Good for Billy.

– Finally, WBA says Merry Christmas!

    My gut is bigger than the one in the thread below. I am a lazy piece of trash. I hope the wife gets me a 1975 Elvis jumpsuit. She says I look just like the older Elvis.

    I love how you all turned off the comment section for the UofL video – is it because the majority of people were saying the post should be removed?

    #5 I don’t know why people are freaking out. The funny part of the video is the dude over her right shoulder trying his hardest to spontaneously combust.

    #6 Franklin has a heart. I would be willing to bet the lady in the video could care less. If she had a problem with her weight do you think she would be pop drop and lockin?

    Congrats to DeAndre Liggins on making the Orlando Magic roster. Your hard work and perseverance has paid off. I can remember the strides you made from the Billy Gillispie Era to John Calipari transformation. You deserve it but keep working hard Big Blue Nation will never forget your time here at Kentucky. Go Cats

    BCG definitely got in the Christmas spirit this year if he’s willing to come off so much of his Turkey stash…. I wonder if he’s giving out 101 proof or if he broke out the rare breed for the special occasion?? Either way I want some BCG!

    Kasey Hill is all Gator. Hill and Frazier(Gator commitment)play together on the same team and their coach is very close with Donovan. In fact, Hill has silently given a verbal commitment to the Gator coaching staff and will make it official any day now. So, sorry to burst your bubble with Hill but UK has zero chance with him. Go Gators!

    #16–the story has since been corrected/retracted. The recruit was just kidding.

    I think the producers of Home Alone should have also filmed the entire Angles with Filthy Souls. Love that they ‘created’ the movie just for the pizza scene. Great stuff.

    You know the movie within a movie is fake right? So hughes was able to write what they want to fit the scene right? That is not genius my friend. That is script writing. Abs home alone was Hughes lynch pin. Before home alone tons of classics. After home alone, tons of crap!
