The Lexington Fire Department’s Sunday Morning Links

lex fire

Dedicating this morning’s links to the Lexington Fire Department is the least I can do to repay the Bluegrass’ finest. Even though our 3:00 AM emergency could have been solved with a well charged battery, it was reassuring to know that 2 firetrucks and an emergency vehicle were there to help me within 10 minutes. The neighbors may not share my same gratitude for their early morning wake-up call, but I could not be more thankful for Lex Fire.

 

Like most Kentuckians, my experience with ice hockey is limited to the Louisville RiverFrogs and the Lexington Thoroblades. Lucky for me, my roommates turned on last night’s Western Conference Finals in the waning minutes late last night. With 9.3 seconds left in regulation the defending Stanley Cup Champion L.A. Kings scored a goal to force overtime in a 3-3 tie. The Chicago Blackhawks went on to win in 2 OTs after Patrick Kane completed a hat trick to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.

 

Triple Crown season ended yesterday with longshot Palace Malice taking home the crown. Now with 35 years come and gone since the last Triple Crown winner, Deadspin dives deep into ALMOST Triple Crown winner Big Brown, discussing the fall from grace for the horse, the owners, and the trainer since Big Brown nearly attained greatness.

 

If you had an awesome 90s childhood like myself you’re most likely a HUGE fan of Boy Meets World. If watching re-runs makes you nostalgic, go ahead and see what happened when the cast got together for their first reunion since the 2000 finale. The only downer: my first crush Topanga Lawrence was not in attendance.

 

The masterminds at the WNBA debuted a ‘referee cam’ during their ABC broadcasts. Was it a success? The goofy goggles captured Lamont Simpson delivering a technical foul; so yeah it actually is pretty awesome. I thought I liked hearing coaches Mic’d up, but this adds a completely new dimension.

    Where is Matt and Drew?

    Here are some ideas for your blog before the season starts

    1) what uniform numbers will the twins select

    2) what uniform number will Julius Randle select

    3) what uniform number will Dakari Jones select

    4) which player will lead the team in minutes played

    5) ask Drew Barker to keep a diary

    6) what uniform number will Derek Willis select

    7) find some UK fans who live in far away places and ask them why they moved

    I thought we were going to hear some football recruiting news from yesterday. Where’s Matt, put him on the line. I need to speak to him.

    Getting pathetic here but when the boss sees greener pastures, priorities change and the autopilot button is engaged on less important entities.

    I don’t care enough to defend him personally but you all seem so ignorant complaining about Matt. He took a vacation for two weeks, in the slowest news period for the site. Greener pastures? Seems like the best business decision to me…

    Come on guys, I can’t relay the best recruiting news of the day during Church. You gotta think PrimeTime. Give it whirl at around 2:15 and I think you’ll be pleased.

    Aware LexCar but trend longer than two weeks. Opinion is my interpretation of the facts. Now think of something on your own and leave my thoughts out of it.
