Steve Carell’s Saturday News and Views

Steve-Carell

On this day in 1962, Steve Carell entered the world in Concord, Massachusetts destined to be one of this generation’s funniest people. You’ve undoubtedly heard of Mr. Carell as it seems he’s been featured in just about every comedic movie in the past 10 years. The 40-Year Old Virgin, Bruce Almighty, Anchorman, Crazy, Stupid, Love, and Dinner for Schmucks are just a few of the many movies he has starred in and he is set to appear in many more in the near future. He’s perhaps best known for his role in the legendary television show, The Office, where he played odd-ball boss, Michael Scott. Many around the world have memories of Michael Scott or one of Carell’s many other characters entertaining them through their televisions, but he has also done more in his life than entertain. He supports various charities around the nation and married in 1995 to a woman named Nancy Walls. The couple had two children – a son named Johnny and a daughter named Elisabeth Anne. So here’s to you, Steve. May you have a happy birthday and may Anchorman 2 be as awesome as the first.

An old favorite of mine: Even Stepvhen discussing medical marijuana.

 

On to today’s news:

Mark Stoops wasn’t satisfied with the effort he and his coaches received from the players in today’s practice. After a few days of positive effort and performance, the Cats just didn’t have it today according to Stoops.

Little bit of a disappointment today. Very poor day, to be honest with you. Very frustrated. Had to start certain segments over again. Just very weak mentally, physically. Just very average day. So very disappointed.,” Stoops told reporters, citing the team’s lack of focus and attention to detail for their “poor all around” performance. “We wasted the day. We wasted the morning.

We’re not tough enough. …I believe we have good kids here, and they mean well, but we have to have some toughness to us, some fight about us, or we’re going to have a long year.

-Demarco Robinson was named one of the five “Hidden Gems” of the SEC today by Saturday Down South. Jon Cooper, the author of the article, had the following to say about Mr. Robinson.

Yes, a different Robinson than Florida has, with no relation to Demarcus. UK’s Robinson has a big potential playing in Neal Brown’s Air Raid offense. He stands to catch the most passes and become the Cats’ biggest threat as a pass catcher. He caught 28 passes in 2012, but that should double and then some. Robinson is a great looking player.

-In other news on the football front, Matt Elam, the five-star defensive tackle from Elizabethtown, Kentucky, announced today that he will be taking his official visit to Kentucky on December 14th. The big guy will announce his college choice on January 4th during the US Army All-American Game. Come be a hero, Matt! You’d look great in blue!

Tyler Ulis, 8th ranked point guard from the 2014 class, was in Lexington today for an unofficial campus visit. The 38th best player in the 2014 class according to ESPN just received an offer an offer from Calipari and Kentucky today. He has also attracted the attention of Iowa, Michigan State, and USC.

Angel Delgado verbally committed to Seton Hall tonight. The 6-foot-9, 215 pounder from Huntington, West Virginia, picked the Pirates over Dayton, Florida State, and Virginia. Delgado was once a potential target for Calipari and his staff, but he never received an offer.

    Steve is from Acton, MA, not Concord. He went to school in Concord, but he was from Acton.

    Holy Crap..The advertising header at the top of the KSR page was just for UT season football tickets. Might want to make sure that doesn’t happen again…

    It appears Coach Stoops has entered “stop the hype and lower expectations” mode, a time-honored UK tradition. When’s Midnight Madness, again? 🙂

    my roomate’s step-sister makes $77/hr on the computer. She has been fired from work for 10 months but last month her check was $17833 just working on the computer for a few hours and using this one old trick

    10 – is this a riddle where we’re supposed to guess what she did for that money, or are you some telemarketing moron posting to a site for business? I’m going out on a limb and say the second. I think I speak for all when I say stop posting on here. Do you actually think we believe someone can make $77 an hour on the computer? Idiot

    Angel Delgado verbally committed to fend off the wolves. Upon Cal and Coach O’s direction he choose Seton Hall in order to cause schools to stop recruiting him as heavily and to focus on improving. In essence this makes him appear unavailable but in the end if he shows promise this season at Huntington Prep he will be at UK.
    Fulford is getting elite players many college coaches covet, however he has an agenda against Cal and UK. He gives the impression Cal needs to be brought down a notch and despises the belief he can sign whoever he wants. Basically Fulford is steering kids away from UK and now our coaching staff is taking notice and action.

  18. Google runs ads that are close to your area also. So, if you live in the Louisville area you will get some UL, if you live close to Tennessee you will get some UT ads.

    #17 or Angel Delgado never received an offer because Cal feels good about Trey Lyles, Victor, etc. and/or the likelihood that Lee and Dakari will be here next year with Karl Towns. Conspiracy theory aside, I think Cal has his sights set on higher regarded prospects and who can blame Delgado for going ahead and looking elsewhere when no offer was made by UK. Even 4* kids have egos.

    #11 or are you so gullible that when someone posts some silly sh!t as a joke, with no link or further info, that you swallow it hook, line, and sinker? #notjerrytiptonaintrealeither

    A video of Colbert on The Daily Show and the teabagger, rednecks aren’t foaming at the mouth with insulting posts to this? Well, it’s only 1pm so they’re probably just waking up.

    I always wondered what stupid kids thought was funny. Now I know. Shootie, baby, smoke less pot and get more exercise. It’s good for your brain (or what passes for it).
