KSR’s Fringe Sports Friday!

In an effort to make KSR more inclusive to all Kentucky Sports we will be dedicating a little time each friday to the ‘fringe’ UK sports.  If you are a member of a club or sports team and would like to see some KSR representation, feel free to send info or pictures of the dance team to [email protected]

-Last weekend we saw Kentucky’s hockey team take on the Dirty Birds and absolutely ‘beat the puck’ out of them by a score of 18-2. In hockey.  The one that’s like soccer, but on ice.  So congrats to the Hockey Cats and good luck as they take on Wright State this weekend.

-Not to be outdone though, the UK Swimming and Diving team will host Louisville Saturday starting at 2.  A swim meet doesn’t have quite the same spectator sport feel to it as any type of game, but the facilities at UK are nice and the times are fast.  Kentucky is bringing in the SEC Diver of the week in Greg Ferrucci and Louisville brings in the Big East Swimmer of the week in Raine Thompson (who I used to swim with back in the day.)

-Meanwhile, in other country club sports, Kentucky’s Eric Quigley lost a tough one to Georgia’s Wil Spencer over the weekend.  Quigley had moved up to the number two Tennis player in the nation before beating the number one from Tennessee to get to the finals, only to lose to that Georgia kid with the wrong number of L’s in his name.

-Kentucky’s rifle team only has one loss on the season so far – and that came against Texas Christian University.  And if you’re going to lose to a school in a gun shooting competition, it might as well be to the Christians from Texas.  However, they are just coming off a win against supposed ‘powerhouse’ Alaska-Fairbanks, which I guess makes sense with all the wolf hunting from helicopters they do up there.  Good luck to them as they take their guns to Oxford this weekend to shoot against Memphis and the Admiral Ackbars of Ole Miss.

    “Meanwhile, in other country club sports…”

    Um, are we supposed to know which sport this is based on the ubiquity of Eric Quigley’s name in the public consciousness?

    Is it golf? Tennis? Shuffle board? Douchebaggery?

    That rifle stuff is good. Lots of Olympic events from that.

    Tipturd and Clay on 590 together right now. It’s the seventh sign of the apocalypse. That or I may kill myself.

    Touche Bob. But to be fair, you did guess Tennis.

    In an effort to be a real radio station, KSR presents its weekly test of the Emergency Alert System: “Blurt… Blurt… Blurt…. If this had been a real emergency, you would have heard Coach Cal tell you, ‘Quit being such a selfish M…. F…. and get the heck away from your radio. Blurt…. Blurt… Blurt…”

    Is that hot chick still on the UK rifle team? She was showcased on KSR quite some ago.

    great job by the UK tennis team and Eric Q. and Grant R. Great to see KSR cover “fringe” sports. Thanks to Mitch Barnhart for making these guys a priority. Hope to see more cover from KSR.

    You do realize that Fringe is the best show on TV?

    Fringe is indeed the best show on TV. I’ve watched it from episode 1.

    Quigley is the bomb. Last week in the SEC tourney, the # 1 player in the country, Rhyne Williams of UT did not play for fear of losing to Eric who has beaten him handily the last 2 times they have played.

    Stupid Fox moving Fringe to the Friday Night Death Slot!

    Though the last show to survive it was X-Files, and Fringe is the new X-Files.

    And UK’s Dodgeball team is tied for 3rd place in the National standings. They are hosting a tournament in the Seaton Center all day on Saturday.

    Taylor was up above smiling down on the ice cats. If he would have been there it would have been 30 to nothing. I miss you buddy

    Lentz, a post about swimming, you are to be commended. And by the way, I also used to swim with Raine back in my PST days. Her dad was the biggest douche on the planet.
