I’m here today to tell you a little bit about a place called Orange Leaf; it’s delicious. Some of you may have heard about it. With five locations in Lexington, two in Louisville, and a couple others across the state, Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt provides decadent flavors reminiscent of your childhood trips to the local dessert shop as well as fruit-based flavors that will suit even the most health conscious individuals. Go out and try a couple ounces today and be sure to sign up for the Ounce Back rewards program. I like to mix my two favorite flavors, candied afternoon notes and butter pecan podcast.
— Kentucky and Samford tip off tonight in the second consecutive game that has the Cats favored by 34.5 points. Samford enters the contest at 3-6 on the season while Kentucky will most likely be running without Terrence Jones. Unless that finger healed overnight, I don’t see any reason to play him tonight with the risk of doing even more damage. Keep that thing wrapped up for a few more days and then let him loose in the next two games leading up to Louisville.
— Keep an eye on that game in the Yum! Center tonight. Louisville plays host to a pretty good College of Charleston team that is 9-1 on the season with wins over Clemson, UMass, and Tennessee. I would hate to see the Cards lose a game just one day after Chane Behanan’s undefeated prediction, especially when they are a 17-point favorite.
— Coach Cal and Co. returned from their trip to Florida late last night and the surprise he promised us on the runway was just as disappointing as I expected. He posted this on his Facebook page: “Ready for my surprise? I wanna know how far the Big Blue Nation stretches. Tell me where you’re from and how long you’ve been a Kentucky fan for a chance to win (2) free tickets to Tuesday’s game vs. Samford.” There are currently 3,381 comments on the post.
— A guy got punched in the back of the head and Darnell Dodson hit a buzzer-beater in last night’s Southern Miss-Arizona State game.
It was Dodson’s first time playing in a college basketball game since Kentucky’s 2009 Regional Finals loss to West Virginia.
— This news headline is just awkward: “Man Eats Cocaine From Brother’s Butt, Dies.” Don’t do drugs, kids.
— Chuck Hayes’ heart abnormality has left him without a team to start the NBA season, but he is thankful for the prayers and support from the fans:
Thank you everyone for your prayers and support, taking the next step to get healthy and back on the court, much love

We wish Chuck the best as he tries to land a spot on another team.
— Today’s radio podcast is a must-listen-to as Oscar Combs co-hosted with Matt and Jim Gray stopped by to talk about the future of Rupp Arena. Take a listen..
