back-to-reality

After a long, happy weekend full of announcements, it’s that time. Time to go back to reality and let Matt, Drew the Intern, and Shannon the Dude steer you through your Monday morning. You can join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080 or send a text to (919) 928-1789.

Today’s topics include:

* Final thoughts on UK Football Media Day

* Bookie!!

* Matt’s run in with a Card fan

* Etc.

The comments game also continues, but with a chance to win tickets to the UK – WKU football opener! Get excited. Each day, the two best comments will be selected by Matt and Drew the Intern and placed into a drawing for the tickets. Bring your A game.

On a side note, thank you to everyone for the well wishes on my engagement. I’m over the moon about it and promise not to clutter this sacred space with wedding plans. But, you should know that BTI has agreed to be my flower girl.

    Contrary to what you might think, you do not need a pond to have geese. A child’s wading pool works nicely. They like to mate in water and need water to hatch their eggs. They need to be able to get their feathers wet in order to keep their eggs moist.

    Two types of Geese; the ones that Summer here migrate to Central America during Winter, Canadian Geese will Winter here but Summer in the Tundra of “Canadia”. Geese have a built-in GPS and will land in the same locations every year during and after migration; if there has been new construction they will land/spend time in those same areas for 5-8 years before changing locations, essentially having been “taught” to land in those areas for generations.

    It just sucks to hear every other SEC school market talking football this time of year, then we come here to hear UK’s FB news and as soon as one tidbit is mentioned, people cry like children about it.

    Respect in the SEC comes on the football field. The SEC, as a whole, couldn’t give 2 flips about basketball. UK football will never succeed as long as we have a group of frontrunner basketball fans dominating the culture. KSR bends over to the ratings, no shame in that. The shame is in the culture that commands their actions. You basketball fascists are no better than the bluehaired season ticket holders that sit on their hands during games that you like to cry so much about.

    Let UK actually win something in FB and all the folks crying now about FB coverage will suddenly be wearing Newton jerseys next fall, screaming for UK football. Frontrunners. ALL of em.
