One is an international superstar, the poster boy for YOLO and a diehard UK basketball fan; the other is Drake, a popular rapper.
Check out our good friend Adam Kuhlenbeck throwing up his three goggles with October’s Very Own recently at a hotel in Atlanta. Started from the bottom, now they’re here.
— First and foremost, I can’t take my eyes off the coverage from Boston. I think we can all agree KSR isn’t the place to chat about it, but I must say I’m fascinated by the way we can follow a manhunt this day and age through Twitter, online police scanners, etc. It’s really incredible how informed — and misinformed, CNN — people miles and miles away can be, not just from reporters, but via Twitter from locals and Regular Joes in the area. For example, look at this photo from a young girl trapped in her Watertown home. Can you imagine that being your backyard???
And the suspects’ uncle? I don’t know if you saw his interview, but WOW. He has been thrown into an awful situation and he showed nothing but poise and dignity when responding to reporters. They should let him lead the hunt.
— Moving on to Kentucky sports, it’s a pretty slow day on the newswire, so that gives you plenty of free time this afternoon to schedule your trip to Brooklyn. Tickets for Kentucky’s game against Providence in the Barclays Center are on sale over at Ticketmaster.com and there are plenty of great seats still available. Keep in mind, though, the game is on the Sunday following the home football game against Tennessee. You’ll have to figure out the nearly impossible logistics or pick between the two.
— Last night, the Palm Beach Post reported that Florida State quarterback Clint Trickett is transferring and Kentucky is on his list of possible destinations. However, Jason Rowland of Rivals.com refuted the report on Twitter a little later, saying Drew Barker is the only quarterback UK will take a commitment from. Kentucky is pretty set at QB for the next 2-3 years so it’s not a heartbreaker to see the staff pass on Tricket. It also feels weird as hell to be okay with UK football passing on a quarterback transfer from Florida State. Is this real life?
— Big Atlanta Braves fan here, but Teddy has me opening up to the Cincinnati Reds. Last night’s celebration between bat boy Teddy Kremer and Todd Frazier after Frazier’s home run is a must-see for all sports fans. Teddy called the shot…
What a moment.
— Meet Seventh Woods, Kentucky’s next great point guard. He graduates high school in 2016.
— Matt and Ryan were joined by a very special guest on this morning’s radio show. Matt Bradford, a UK fan and Purple Heart recipient, stopped by to discuss the Cats with KSR. Have a listen on today’s podcast over at TalkRadio1080.com.
