Meet Big Blue Hero, Tony Tuck

The KSTV Casting Call produced a number of good candidates and some potential winners. It also produced Tony Tuck, one of the more unique characters I have seen. The man who admitted to standing outside of his house with a “Free Enes” sign provided one of the more entertaining entrees in the contest. Here was his performance and the judging:

    Matt, why do you and franklin always have to act like drunken frat boys and make light and make fun of those who you don’t relate too? Do we all have to have a 3 rd grade hair cut and be anal retentive about everything in life. Don’t say you don’t because you are constantly doing this on both your radio show and on here. I would hope you would be raised better than that, but your family and specifically your parents probably do the same thing. It maybe a universal invariant like time, but you should be ashamed…

    3. I get what you are sayin’, but realize that you are defending a dude with a ponytail and the Hulk Hogan fu manchu.

    You dont seem anal retentive at all #3

    We are simply enjoying life and laughing at what there is to laugh at…I dont think Tony Tuck is upset at all and he seems to be much more ok about it than you do

    @ #3 Matt and Drew Franklin especially, have done nothing but show me love, and give me a shot, Matt says plain as day he loves my unique look, I like that you dont have that view that all dudes should be clean cut and short hair, cuz I dont feel that way as you can tell, but bashin these guys on that point, I dont get it

    I think it’s great! I was there, and it did’nt cost me $2500 for a parking pass! Thx Matt & crew for givin’ the true fans a chance!

    Tony Tuck is the man. I don’t know why #3 is calling us “drunken frat boys” for liking a guy’s passion for the Cats.

    Keep doing you, Tony.

    Love how matt had to make sure he pointed out that tony tuck didnt start free enes even though tuck never claimed that he did.

    I think it would be great to try out, and I can’t knock or criticize anyone for trying, I would try out myself if I didn’t work for UofL and thought it might somehow jeopardize my position by promoting the Cats.

    I think you ought to give him a chance, and if the hair, sideburns and beard need to go for a super fan like Tony, I’d bet he’d do it because he really has something to say about UK!

    Tuck reminds me of Dave Grohl from Foo Fighters. He is obviously a passionate Cats fan. Besides, he knew we were gonna take out OSU. If Jenna is a frontrunner, Tuck should at least get a second go-around to prove himself. Yeah, she’s a good lookin’ girl and all, but 1.) She’s not even from the Kentucky area, and 2.) Her reply about UK winning the SEC crown, “It’s hard for her to say because she’s from ‘Bama?” Terrible response.

    And Vanetti has a right to call out Tuck on his music teacher look? Vanetti looks exactly like Billy Clyde, so give Tuck a break. Keep on keepin’ on Tuck..

    I think Tuck would be great doing bits especially if he got pitted against some UofL fans! He’d be a True Blue perspective for sure. GO TUCK!!!

    WOW! I love this guy! He is exactly what the Big Blue Nation needs interviewing fans, players, rivals, etc! I think his personality fits for a person that we need for commentating. He exhibits all of the qualities of a true UK fan and then some. Sure we love Mary Jo and the others but his knowledge of the game and spunky attitude are exactly what is needed to do a job like this. Just give him….wait for it…here comes a chant…”One more chance, One more chance, One more chance!” VOTE FOR TONY!!!!

    If this guy wasnt just a fan and knew a little bit of somethin he would have just laughed at Enes being compared to Sebastian Telfair. I guess I can better argue this a year from now, but I just find it hard to beleieve that 7 pts and 3 asts. per game on the twolves would have won the cards a national title. the closest telfair is gettin to a trophy is the high school slam mag pic with lebron.

    @B4UK8 Telfair was the guy that was in louisville for like a week before hiring an agent right?, also the reason Rondo didn’t go to louisville, being a louisville kid because they didn’t have a scholarship spot for him, I know my stuff brother, I lot of stuff I didn’t say that I wish I did, but I dont make excuses, I’ll just have to make a believer out of you if I get a shot at the “big time” thanks for the feedback brother, BIG BLUE NATION still showing up and showing love, THANK YOU ALL!!

    You won’t find a more dedicated UK fan than Tony Tuck. This would be a perfect match for Tony and all UK fans.

    I love this guy!!! He may be a fan but he is also well versed in other teams as well. He just happens to be a fan for UK. He has the look and attitude for television not to mention the smile. He is what you all need to keep it young and fresh. GO TONY TUCK 🙂

    I think Tony Tuck was very personable, and I could see him talking to fans out in the public, just like Jay Leno has his street talk!! I think it could be alot of fun, and funny!! That would be a nice change!!
