    Last year at the State Fair, I kept my Cardinals cup that my 5 dollar Coke came in… I threw it in the back of my truck and forgot about it. Since that night, Louisville has won the Sugar Bowl, won the NCAA championship, and made it to the CWS. What should I do with this cup? I’m thinking either burn it or take it back to the parking lot at the fair… I would burn it in the parking lot if I could, but my guess is that wouldnt go over well…

    Dr. Sayre – maybe you should burn the cup with a little crown royal and a little bit of line beard hair (if you can find some) in order to exorcise the truck properly. Might want to bring in a priest too:) Happy belated birthday to you Ryan!

    I love the show, but making fun of a speech impediment is not funny. Crack on anything you want, that people can control. I know the seizures Matt has is much more serious, but the difference in making fun of that is not that much different.

    I think we got three quarterbacks who can get the job done and not one who clearly stands above the others. It’s pretty obvious the coaches will take the best two and let them both help with the offense. Whitlow can help with a certain package, and Max Smith/Towles can help with another.

    Was a little disappointed in Breaking Bad last night. Last week’s show was fantastic. Last night’s — not so much. They are trying to cram too many developments into the show and not all of it is believable. The gun fight with Todd’s family winning was kind of strange and the extreme depression that Jesse is in is not entirely believable.



  52. Dwayne
    10:36 am August 19, 2013 Permalink

    Matt have you heard anything about changes to game day experience? Specifically the removal of the most depressing pregame experience “My Old Ky Home”.

    If you are just going to a sporting event for them women, go to a PGA tourney and follow Adam Scott. No other venue can beat that. I followed him, Dustin Johnson, and Nick Watney at the Masters in 2011 and it was the most talent I’d ever seen.

    68, Lachlin McClean was talking about the pitchers in the LLWS – one was 6’4″, the other was 6’3″ – supposedly both kids are 12 years old. You know, when supposed 12 YO’s are already shaving and the size of a college PG, it’s time to either pull some birth certificates or blood testing. I felt the same way when my 10-YO daughter’s volleyball team played in the Bluegrass Qualifier, and their opponents were all wearing B-cups.

    I hate the cards as much as anybody, but NFL teams play on Sundays and they serve beer at all their stadiums. Not sure what the big deal is there. The fact that they had their scrimmage on a Sunday is lame, but serving beer on Sunday, IMO is no big deal.

    I started out in a dorm before moving into a sorority house in college and it was the difference between a Yugo and a Lexus. We had a baby grand piano in our living room at the sorority which was very convenient for me as a music major. We also had a beautiful fireplace and many comfy sofas in our living room, a beautiful dining room and a sun room downstairs. On weekends when we didn’t have scheduled meals we had access to a professional kitchen to cook our own meals. It was a minimal difference in cost and a huge difference in quality of life not to mention the lifelong friendships made.

    I agree about Archie, Matt. As Cal said when comparing him to Julius Mays – “Julius is 24 years old! When Archie is 24 years old, he is going to be a pretty good basketball player.”

    People who bash Archie were quick to forget – he was REALLY GOOD in college. Yes, he had some issues – jump shot needs work, free throws need work, and he needs to learn control and improve his passing out of traffic. But even with these problems he was our leading scorer, and drew so many fouls that he shot more free throws than most of the rest of the team combined. And he was only 18.

    Archie was a steal at the bottom of the first round, and he is going to have a successful NBA career.

    You should refrain from insulting Beer. Beer is good, wholesome Americana and only curmudgeons and Klansmen hate it. Respectable adults get to sip their spirits in public with pride instead of swilling from flasks that smell like sweaty balls. Peace. Roll Tide!

    We stayed in a Crown Plaza hotel in the Atlanta area a few years ago on our way to FL for vacation so we could try out their Tempur-Pedic mattresses. I was miserable all night (I have back problems). We later purchased a Select Comfort mattress and it is heaven. I never wake up in the morning with a backache anymore.

    To go 40-0 we will have to some guys with incredibly high basketball I.Q.’s. You can’t really get an idea about that until you see them play in college a little bit.



  170. Delk for 3

    In 2011-2012, we had a team of guys with incredibly high b-ball I.Q.’s. Darius Miller, MKG, Ant Davis, and Doron Lamb had an immense understanding of the game. As Gillispie referred to, they “knew when to whoa and when to go.”
