    Started the iHeartRadio stream (yes, it’s working) a few minutes too early, and forgot to mute. I was instantly greeted by this gem: “I see talent in Swopshire.” #smh

    Swopshire is pretty good and could potentially be on a 2nd or 3rd all Big East Team.

    You know, I would say that I truly enjoy watching the Reds lose, but I mean… the law of diminishing returns kicked in a month ago. Now it’s just sad. Go Pirates!

    Can you ask Derrick Cope what he thought about Cole Trickle’s comeback and if Rowdy Burns was really that huge of an a-hole behind the scences. I’ll hang up and listen.

    When Oscar and Ira are both on the radio on the same broadcast I seem to sense some animosity between them (especially on Oscar’s part) What’s the problem?
    P.S. Please do some quality control on your pod cast some of them combine the day before’s broadcast (after a commercial break) I didn’t get to hear yesterday’S (Thursday) first hour and listened this morning and after the second commerical break there was the second hour from Wednesday’s broadcast. B.T.I. “PAY ATTENTION”

    10:17 am July 8, 2011 Permalink

    What is it about a little white ball with red stitching that makes normal, grown folks act like morons? Falling over rails, dropping kids for fly balls, knocking kids over for foul balls, stealing a ball from a kid… I have seen ALL of these things over the past few years in the MLB.

    Get over your grown selves. It is a freaking baseball. Get out more and gain some real perspective.

    Oscar Combs sounds like “The Old Man” from Pawn Stars when he gets excited.

    19- kinda, but Oscar actually puts effort into speaking… and everything else. The old man from Pawn Stars looks like death eating a cracker and like he’s just hanging around for death’s cold grip.

    22. I always listen to the podcast, this one of the few times I’ve ever listened to the stream. I’d rather pistol whip myself than listen to “10 signs you’re whipped” again.

    Hey Matt I bet Oscar knows “Third Rate Romance, Low Rent Renezvous” by The Amazing Rhythm Aces. Try it and see.

    I was at the UK – UT game last year too. The UT fans were quiet and not too bad during the first 3 quarters. Once it was obvious they were going to win in the 4th, they became very obnoxious. In my best Alabama fan voice, “Man, I hate Tennessee”!

    I know this isn’t stubhub but does anyone have any race tickets for sale for Saturday night’s race. Looking for 2 together. I’m in Western KY and hate to drive up there without tickets. Thank you very much.

    fun. nay.



  51. WTF are the comments?
    11:21 am July 8, 2011 Permalink

    Oscar just said something very interesting. I was born in ’78 and I know UK won the title that year. I know the names and that they beat Duke, et all. But I don’t know anything about the season other than that. It’s great they won the title but that’s really all people my age know. We always seem to focus on the destination more than they journey, especially when it was before our time.



  52. iShawnUK

    #48 This will be my 20th race, and everyone I have ever been to there is always ppl scalping tickets, if you have the money to buy them, drive up there will be tickets available!

    How can Mashburn be underrated? He was runner up player of the year in college.

    Bogans is for sure underrated. No. 4 ALL-TIME LEADING SCORER IN UK HISTORY. Enough said.

    underrated was Conner Flynn guard combo

    Thanks ShawnUK. I figured there might be some scalpers but I’d much rather know I have some waiting. I’ll prob end up rolling the dice.

    Ask him if his nieces are into older white, slightly overweight and financially unstable men?

    Love ya, Oscar, but you’re wrong about the over-the-backboard rule. It goes back to the 50s, when Kansas used to run an unstoppable baseline inbounds play by passing the ball over the backboard to Wilt Chamberlain.



  64. Mike

    I agree with Grover on roselle. Anytime a UK fan asked if we were going to defend ourselves, the first thing out of his mouth was, “if by defend you mean cover up”.

    NO ONE wanted it covered up. All we wanted was to be fairly treated. roselle on the other hand wanted, WANTED, to harm UK BB.

    62- great gift. The gift of a childhood with no father.

    Wonder which one the kid would prefer? The real MLB ball and a dead daddy, or a live daddy and a souvenir ball from the parking lot?

    My kid wants a parrot as a pet. However, I’m not about to go hang off the Hyacinth Cliffs to procure a “real” one.

    “Gentle On My Mind” is far and away Glen Campbell’s best song. Written by the great John Hartford, and covered by half the musicians who’ve lived since.

    67) You or I could trip on the door step today and die of a cardiac arrest on the way to the hospital. So you’re not gonna climb that mountain to get that parrot- are you tip-toeing through the rest of your life and by-passing other simple pleasures?
    Good “luck” with that… #LifeHappens
