Mary Jo shares her feelings on Louisville

——————————————————————–
Mary Jo Perino wants in on the Louisville Hate Day fun…
——————————————————————–

Let me preface this by saying Louisville is the very first place I saw Kid Rock in person, so we’ll always have that.

But that, the Derby (which I’m credentialed for, rendering Steve Masiello completely useless) and 100.5 Gen X radio is all Louisville and I will ever have.

That’s not to say Louisville can’t be good for some people. Take bulimiacs. Who doesn’t automatically want to throw up when you think about Rick Pitino’s table-side manner, or Samardo Samuels “dominant” inside game. You might feel so sick, you’d call up Bobby Petrino’s son to see if he has something that can help you out.

Louisville is also a positive role model for those who naturally suffer from a Napoleon complex. It just makes rooting for a team that loses to FIU and Morehead State in a six month period, but still believe they are a big time program that much easier.

Listen, I don’t hate people. But I do hate Louisville, especially this week. Now I don’t hate them enough to actually wield a hair brush as a weapon, but you could say I’m not a fan. I’ve even gotten some new UK branded cowboy boots to mark the occasion of another good tail-kicking on Saturday. And despite how disappointed I may be in January when I perhaps have to travel to a place like Birmingham, I will take solace in those wearing red talking smack, knowing they aren’t going anywhere as they “rebuild” once again.

And let’s not even talk about what happens in March (but probably April for the Cats).

So thank you Louisville for being a guaranteed win on UK’s schedule, when there aren’t many.

Thank you Louisville for providing so much comic relief during these uncertain economic times.

And most importantly, thank you for being a place the original American Bad A** likes to come once a year so that I may catch a glimpse.

    UK Football will also forever be known as Rock Hudson’s personal cumdumpster.

    great first effort MJP. Although Steve Massiello was never useful in the first place (and if he disagrees, he can feel free to headbutt me in the shin)

    I bet MJP got all moist up just thinking about Kid Rock & Steve Masiello in the same sentence.

    if you’re going to make light of people with eating disorders, the least you could do is spell the word correctly: bulimics.

    geez.

    We need another podcast with Mary Jo. She is far too awesome to let WLEX have her all to themselves. Make it so KSR.
    edit: We really want more podcasts in general, but more with MJP…and Woo.

    Mary Jo is smokin hot. And as knowledgable as any man in local Lex tv news. She’ll probably leave for ESPN or Foxsports eventually.

    Read the first line about Kid Rock and stopped there. If she’s a Kid Rock fan, her opinion doesn’t count. GO CATS

    I bet MJP has never heard Kid Rocks first album and doesnt knows the words to “Yodeling in the Valley”

    There are actually plenty of guaranteed wins on our schedule. Our non conference schedule is weak.

    Salute to MJP who is actually one of the “few” women who really do know sports and can discuss on a wide range- always enjoy her and her great personality as well

    Kid Rock looks like a UL fan. Mary Jo. She’s a vegetarian. She don’t eat meat, but she sure likes the bone.

    Or something…

    MJP bringing the hate. I like it.

    I heard she and Christan Flum are both divorced now because they cannot stay faithful, so anybody here has a shot at hitting one of the two. I also hear one of them needs grooming in that area down low. YUCK!!!
