    I am home with my 7 year old who is sick from school, I wish the worst news that we had to deal with was Louisville winning the championship. That bad news is all in fun, answering his questions about the Boston Marathon….not fun..and sad.

    Someone compared the impact that the Boston Marathon has on the community to the impact that the Derby has on Louisville, and that really hit home for me. I can’t imagine how violated the traditions of those families must feel now. Just an awful thing.

    My son is a high school senior, and he spends his days in school and his evenings (part of them at least) studying. WHEN do these kids do school work? They are always prepping for this all star game and that all star game. Is there no longer a limit on how many a kid can participate in?

    Brown says he wants 8-9 deep at WR. (1) D. Robinson, (2) R. Cunningham, (3) D. Collins, (4) A.J. Legree, (5) D. Sweat, (6) Blue – JUCO, and the Freshman (7) Badet, (8) Timmons, and (9) A. Montgomery.

    Let’s hope all Freshman are ready to go to make this thing work.

    Will we have a hand signal like the UL “L?”

    New show competition: create a new hand signal for UK fans!!! How do we survive? Three goggles at football games? We will not be an upper tier program without a fan hand signal!!! Come on Mitch!! What the heck are you doing???

  141. 140, I hope not. When I saw the pic of Neal Brown giving the Texas Tech “Guns Up” while he was still there it made me cringe…way too close to the “L” for my blood. What’s more is Tech’s colors are the same. That made me cringe even more.

    Wow Travis you are really sound scary. Maybe tomorrow on the show you can give more riveting insight on how some ones was feeling at a specific moment in there life. Just don’t call in any more you have nothing of any importance to say. Even though you think Matt Jones is your best friend he is not and he makes fun of you off the are. Take that from some one who dose actually know him.
