John Lee Hooker’s Monday News and Views

john-lee-hooker-7

What a crazy weekend, right?!  Geez.  We totally had some crazy times.  You were there.  And you.  You, too.  Yes, I know you don’t remember but you were really wasted.  Anyways, good morning.  Or night if you are normal and don’t go to sleep before midnight.  Monday’s News and Views are brought to you by the old-school crooning of John Lee Hooker, who would be 93 today if he were still alive.  Alas, we aren’t lucky enough to have this great bluesman with us today.  And, yes, he was one of the greats.  You should like him.  Why?  Well, your favorite color is blue, right?  And he recorded “Boogie Chillen”.  On to the news…

The California team beat the Kentucky Little Leaguers 10-0.  That’s one rough outing, and KY went up against arguably the best team in the U.S. without our ace on the mound.  Griffin McLarty can pitch again on Aug. 23rd, but that’ll be a date late because the boys play again tomorrow vesus the Southeast Region team at 4pm.  Here’s to hoping they can pull out a victory.

– LSU QB Jordan Jefferson kicked a marine in the head during a bar fight.  He’s an idiot.  In other news, Les Miles is his coach.  He’s also an idiot.

– In preseason play, the New York Jets smacked the Cincinnati Bengals 27-7.  Why is this relevent?  Because a couple Cats saw action.  DeQuin Evans recorded two tackles, one assisted.  John Conner had one rush for one yard. Conner surely had some huge blocks in there and all that other small stuff that he does so wonderfully, but I didn’t get to see it.

– Matt got a hold of a few pics of the new ribbon video boards at Commonwealth Stadium.  Scroll down to check it out.  Lots of money going into that place and it should be great.

Somebody make me a bowl of this.  Right now.  I’ll pay.

– Three time Derby winning jockey Calvin Borel was arrested for DWI.  He was just barely over the limit and released eventually.  The incident happened in Indiana, and we all that you have to be drunk to go to Indiana, so who can blame him?

– Star 2013 PG Kasey Hill narrowed his list to 7 schools today.  Obviously, Kentucky made the cut, along with FSU, Florida, USF, UofL, Missouri, and NC State.

    What are the odds that 4 of those 7 teams are in the SEC by the time he picks one?

    Looks like no competition for Kasey Hill if we want him. I’d rather have the Harrison’s.

    And Dequin Evans had a sack.

    Oh and Alan Cutler on Bengals Radio tonight kept saying that AJ Green played for Georgetown over and over. Hilarious!!

    Alan Cutler on Bengals Radio kept saying over and over again that AJ Green played for Georgetown. How is it possible to get Georgetown and Georgia confused when it come to football. Hilarious!!

    Does KSR have a way to go back in it’s history and see which name has commented first on any given post? Would like to see the counts.

    Watched Borel ride at Ellis Park about a month ago-I could have done better. He had 3-4 favorites that day and didn’t even get in the $

    Calvin Borel won the derby like 3 times and is a millionaire. Why doesn’t he buy some teeth?

    Seriously………I look forward to reading my news and views, and this was far too short. At least put some effort in.

    North Oldham Little League can still pull this out. Wish them luck.

    DeQuin had a sack on McElroy. 13:28 in 3rd Quarter – 2nd & 12. McElroy back to pass, looks right. SACKED by DQ for an 8 yard loss!
    It appears DQ has this kid’s #.
    He sacked him when Alabama came to commonwealth. http://photos.al.com/birmingham-news/2009/10/alabama_kentucky_091003_22.html

    Link mentions DeQuin’s sack. (ha, haha)

    ….Now that DeQuin has sacked McElroy twice in his career he can finally say he has a pair.

    Yeah, Sorry Chris, but unfortunately I’d have to say this is probably the weakest News&Views post in history.

    Who can blame him? Drinking and driving are no laughing matter. Tell that to all the folks who’ve lost loved ones to drunk drivers. Not a very responsible comment.

    Just bc he kicked a marine he’s an idiot? I have met several marines that deserve much of the same, not most, but some.

    Not a smart move, Calvin. Gotta realize a half a beer probably puts you over the limit, little dude.
