Holly From The Bachelor Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast

Holly didn’t get a rose on the season premiere of The Bachelor, but she did get a dandelion from the Clear Channel parking lot after her appearance on Kentucky Sports Radio radio this morning. Matt and the gang welcomed Holly on to the show to talk about her Derby hat, the Final Four, and Charles Barkley. She also said something about wanting afternoon notes and a podcast.

— Kentucky’s 20-point win over Arkansas-Little Rock marked the end of non-conference play for the season. The Cats will kick off league play at home against South Carolina on Saturday, followed by road games at Auburn and Tennessee, Arkansas and Alabama at home, Georgia and LSU on the road, and then Tennessee and South Carolina. Kentucky should be heavy favorites in all of those before traveling to Florida on February 7th. There is no reason why the Cats shouldn’t be 9-0 in the SEC entering that game.

— Michael Kidd-Gilchrist met with doctors this morning regarding the injury he suffered in the Louisville game. Last night, Calipari said his freshman phenom is having pains in his chest area. “I don’t know if it is a pulled muscle or what in his chest area,” he said. “It was last game that it happened but we are going to get him checked up and he didn’t feel right at halftime. I told them to give him some medicine to see if they could loosen it up. We will check on him tomorrow, but I think he will be fine.”

— Darius Miller became the 58th member to join the 1,000 point last night. Miller scored 15 against Arkansas-Little Rock to hit the 1,010 mark for his career. After the game, Miller spoke about his achievement, “It’s an honor to be a part of something like this, especially in the type of program that we are in. It feels good and I’m excited about it. I am just blessed be a part of something like this.”

— Also, Anthony Davis moved up into a tie with DeMarcus Cousins, Perry Stevenson, and Melvin Turpin at No. 10 for most shot blocks in a season. Davis has blocked 67 shots on the year, 16 shy of the Kentucky single-season record.

— Freedom Hall smelled like syrup last night and I can’t find anyone with an explanation as to why. If you or someone you know have any idea why Freedom Hall smelled like a Sam’s-Club-sized box of Waffle Crisp cereal, please enlighten us. It’s really bothering me.

— Enjoy your “Holly” podcast…

    According to a story today by Josh Gershon of Scout.com, Aaron Gordon (San Jose, Calif./Archbishop Mitty) is still favoring Arizona and Washington but several other programs are also in the mix.

    As we noted last week, Kentucky is now involved. “Kentucky came to one of my practices and then (John) Calipari called me on the phone,” Gordon told the website. “It’s Kentucky, you can’t just cancel them out.”

    I dont know about Freedom Hall, but a couple years ago there was a maple syrup smell that engulfed the New York metro area.

    Smell or not the place is a DUMP unless they can get the Yum, the CATS should stay out of the VILLE… They didnt even have internet for media row, could not turn lights out for player introduction, it has gone down badly in just one year…………….play ALL games in Rupp or go back to Cincinnati for the northern Ky and southern Ohio U K fans

    2 things:
    1) The pain in MKG’s chest only because he needs an oil change. Like any machine, from time to time you need a tune up.
    2) I have no explanation on why Freedom Hall smelled like Mrs. Buttersworths, but if you need a reason why the YUM! Center smells like sizzurp, I can help you out there.

    Freedom Hall always smells like that. It’s the German Roasted nuts. < Not a joke.

    Drew: it’s the candied nuts they used to sell there during games. Seriously, the paper cones full of candied nuts at one of the vendors. It permeated the building over the years.

    Freedom Hall smells like waffle crisp cereal, because of the German roasted nut wagons surrounding the outer walkway around the arena. :0)~

    The ‘syrup’ smell also can be attributed to all of the caramel corn they were popping up.

    The question that Matt should have asked–“Whose idea was it to wear the hat–yours or someone affiliated with the show?” Lots more to that story…

    Man I love the show and listen every day/night on podcast but Mr. Jones why are you so hard on Ryan lol. I know he makes numerous mistakes but in all honestly I’m surprised Ryan hasn’t fired back at you either on the air or off bc its one thing to joke around about someones mistakes but its almost rude the way he you treat him. I guess Ryan must be very non confrontational bc not too many people would like to be treated the way you treat him. I know this will get deleted but I just thought you may want to know that you come off a lot more rude then I think you want to be.

    I’m with #26 I always felt that Freedom Hall and the surrounding expo center always carried the smell of carmel popcorn. Which would make it smell like syrup since corn syrup is the msin ingredient in both..

    First off, they are real. She has had them her whole life. Second, yes. She is a gold digger. And no, she was not in “a real relationship that she thought was the one”. She has been engaged 4 times: Mumme, the guy from Salyersville, some other guy, the guy she met with last guy who was showing them vacation properties, and then the vacation property guy who gladly welcomed her in from that engagement to his own. She is a nice girl, but WHO THE F goes through FOUR engagements??? Matt did a nice job of sniffing that one out (no pun intended. BAM). She wants a rich guy. At 34, from Salyersville, I dont see it coming. Just being honest. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vwNcNOTVzY

    It’s the interest rate. Instead of paying interest rates banks now make their money (what was our interest) off credit cards. They don’t want people to save money. They force money into the Stock Market by not paying interest rates. That’s why banks are now finding ways to make money off fees instead of interest. I used to make about 2% interest on my savings, banks would than charge about 2% or more for loaning it to those credit worthy. But Wall Street bought the President and Congress and that’s where we are now.Guild Wars 2 Gold

    #26 has the most likely answer in caramel corn (popping). Sometimes in a smaller room i.e. at home a minor electrical problem can briefly give off a semi-sweet syrup smell…
