Stadium Frame Final Four Print Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast

The celebration is over but it can live on forever inside your home or office with this Final Four print from Stadium Frame. The 34×24 framed photo is matted with coins and features a shot of the Superdome court just after the final buzzer sounded to end Kentucky’s magical 2011-12 season. Go to www.Final4Prints.com to purchase the print you see here, or pick out another print or variation of this one from Stadium Frame.

————————

Is it time for basketball yet? I don’t know about you guys, but I’m going through some serious withdrawal. Let’s get through it together with some notes.

— The big news of the day was UK’s proposed plan for Commonwealth Stadium. Among the highlights are a new recruiting room (if they don’t name it after Rich Brooks, I’ll riot), more suites, a club level, and a new press area. This is in line with the brochure that was sent out to K-Fund members about a month ago. Interestingly, the proposal mentions the possibility of reducing the number of seats slightly in order to “increase the value of the remaining seats.” Does that mean no more bleachers? Please??

— Before anything happens, the administration still has to secure bonding capacity from the Legislature. The estimated cost? $125 million. Make it happen, Frankfort…

— Speaking of renovations, our very own Drew Franklin is currently touring the new UK locker room at Rupp Arena and trying not to break anything. He’ll be back tonight with a recap.

— I’m still not over Vandy giving out commemorative SEC Tournament Championship rings to the first 1,000 people on Thursday. Do they come with a commemorative vial of Kevin Stallings’ tears?

— According to Wizards owner Ted Leonsis, John Wall’s return to the court could happen as early as Saturday:

“We play next on Saturday night at home and it is possible but not quite certain, for the first time all season, that we could dress all of our players. I don’t want to jinx it, but we are all hoping that is what we will see.”

Wall has been out all season with a stress injury in his left patella and started going through contact drills in practice last week.

— In case you haven’t been on the internet today, Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony got in a fight during last night’s Knicks/Celtics game. Why? KG apparently told Carmelo that his wife tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios. Burrrrrn.

— One player noticeably absent from that game? Rajon Rondo, who had to sit out for bumping a ref in Saturday’s game against the Hawks. When asked about the suspension, his fourth in less than a year, Rondo said that he bumped the ref as a joke but that he will “adapt” his behavior going forward. When asked what he thought of Carmelo Anthony approaching the Celtics bus after the game, Rondo said, “I thought everybody was coming to talk to each other and figure out some things, going to dinner next time. I don’t know.”

— Finally, “Justified” premieres tonight to the delight of everyone with awesome television taste. Prepare yourself with this drinking game, to which I will add, “Drink for every UK reference, tshirt, or wall decoration” (FYI, there’s one in the bar Raylan lives above).

On this morning’s radio show, Matt and Ryan recapped the BCS National Championship game, Katherine Webb, and the Bachelor. Also, let us know if Jay the caller is alright. Seriously. Get your podcast at TalkRadio1080.com. Or, after the jump.

    I see a lot of “You’re wife taste like honey nut cheerios and not carmelos” coming to an arena near you when Anthony is playing

    I have a couple of additions to the “Justified” drinking game:

    – Brown treeless hills of California are presented as if they even slightly resemble eastern Kentucky … drink.
    – Cast member pretends that Harlan is just an easy 30-minute drive from Lexington … drink.

    Now that everone knows how to push Carmelo’s buttons, I’d expect it to get worse for him. What a dumb move by a very dumb player. Incredibly talented, but dumb.

    Matt Jones must receive cash from Bachelor producers. I’ve seen many seasons of the Bachelor/Bachelorette (not generally by choice) and it is terrible. He keeps pushing it SO hard (and requiring his bloggers to do so) and NO ONE agrees with him. Sorry Matt, you are wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. It doesn’t make you comfortable with your sexuality or whatever – it’s just turrble and you are wrong.

    Does anyone else think the Galen College of Nursing ad is a little suspicious?

    We gotta get some folks in first to get some of those rings, send them back to KSR, so we can destroy them in the most ridiculous manner possible!

    Could have problems due to Federal & State budgets:

    FRANKFORT, Ky. – Needing cash to shore up Kentucky’s weakening pension system for government retirees, Gov. Steve Beshear is searching for common ground that could produce a package of tax reforms when lawmakers convene Tuesday for a 30-day session

    Read more: http://www.kypost.com/dpp/news/state/Beshear-seeks-common-ground-on-tax-reform#ixzz2HUSDp820

    Most of the money would come from taxing the pension income of retirees who draw at least $30,000 a year and from extending a sales tax to household utilities and a litany of other services that have traditionally been exempt in Kentucky.

    Both could be hard sells in the Legislature….

    NO WAY I am paying more taxes for ANYTHING in this state! Looks like the money needs tocome from donations,higher K-Fund fees and increased ticket prices.Not on the backs of State Pension Retrees.
    KY is currently 23 BILLION short in it’s pension fund.
    Sit on lawn chairs in a cow pasture for all I care about football.

    You all need to call Big John, the owner of Stadium Frame, and get his opinion on a few things. Be sure to have the recorder rolling. Funny, funny stuff.
