The Meaning of Hate

With the game against Khloe’s husband out of the way, all of our focus has shifted to the Louisville Cardinals. We’ll revisit a few timeless KSR classics over the next two days as we prepare for the arrival of the most overrated group of guys since O-Town.

We’ll start with my favorite KSR post ever, written by the Intern John Wilkinson.

Enjoy…

A friend once asked me, not long ago, “What does the University of Louisville mean to you?

I stopped, peered westward to a setting sun, and briefly pondered the unlimited boundaries of this unrestricted question.

“Well, my friend, since you asked…

It means, having a chip on your shoulder. It means drowning in a sea of discontent. It means not getting accepted into UK. It means failing to grasp the meaning of sports. It means failing to grasp the meaning of life. It means growing and maintaining a line-beard that is perfectly symmetrical and no more than 1.4” in width. It means playing on Thursday nights and coordinating Black Outs, White Outs, and Affliction Outs. It means driving a Chevy Cavalier with an Acura logo and Eurolights. It means taking road trips to places like Piscataway, NJ and Storrs, CT and pretending to be excited about it.

It means caring more about UK’s affairs than those of your own. It means painting a beak on your face. It means obeying the word of Tom Jurich, bowing before his eminence and not taking his name in vain. It means hosting a UK call-in show one year, then a UofL one the next. It means being fat. It means tailgaiting in an asphalt abyss surrounded by the ruins of the industrial revolution. It means Edgar f-ing Sosa. It means ironing your flat bill every morning. It means commuting from your parents’ house every day. It means ugly girls who look like Mr. Kool-Aid in a sundress. It means how my shit smells. It means somewhere in your life, you were touched inappropriately by an uncle in a UK hat. It means having a KCTCS campus with a Big East affiliation. It means wearing Curve. It means cargo jean shorts. It means not getting ‘it.’ It means playing cornhole at tailgates, and craps too.

It means a glorified sense of entitlement normally reserved for narcissists and teenage girls. It means getting more enjoyment out of being the loud minority than you do from sports. It means supporting a coach who cheats on his wife, takes care of pregnancies and arranges marriages between crazy whores and school employees in an effort to save face. It means bringing Crown Royal to a tailgate. It means putting your “L’s” up. It means C-A-R-D-S Cards. Seriously, what the hell is that? It means playing the National Anthem (Feat. Lil’ John and Ludacris). It means clever nicknames like T-Will, Sam-Sam, and E5. It means getting tasered at graduation. It means a Papa John’s football stadium and a Pizza Hut basketball arena. It means Ron Cooper. It means you don’t even know who that is which means you just proved my point. It means L-yes, L-no, L-ton John, and shut the L-up. It means being a whitehead on the ass of a greater cause. It means wearing jerseys with “The Ville” and embarrassing an entire state. It means having less class than Jackson Co. Schools in the winter. It means picking your nose, and eating it. It means asking for seconds. It means looking at yourself in the mirror and hating what you see.

That, my friend, is what UahL means to me. Does that about cover it?”

Need more hate? Right this way:

And here

    Drew, you had me until this comment….

    “you were touched inappropriately by an uncle in a UK hat”

    Easily the dumbest thing you’ve ever written on this site. While trying to insult UL fans, you subsequently refer to a UK fan as a molesting uncle.

    So, let me get this right… Any time a writer scratches together a moderately amusing post, we can look forward to that post getting re-hashed and re-posted again and again for years to come on this site? Seriously, this has to be the 3rd or 4th time this has been on the site. Just so I know, thanks.

    PS Can’t wait to re-read the Night Before Christmas mock post again! :-O

    It means growing up in the mid 60’s listening to Cawood call the UK game then having to go to bed. Then stealing your sister’s big ass transistor radio, tucking it under your pillow to listen to the game only to wake up the next morning and finding the batteries were dead. Then sticking it under your older brother’s pillow because he’s a UofL fan and having the older sister cussing him out for killing the batteries….L yeah!

    what louisville means to me

    back in the 80s UofL was playing oregon state in basketball (when they were good) my parents were cheering for OSU at some bar in louisville then a UofL fan said to my dad “why are you cheering for oregon state you f.u.c.k.i.n.g kentucky fan” then my mom responded “because he’s was BORN AND RAISED IN OREGON YOU DUMB ASS” with that my dad showed him his oregon license, then the ignorant uL fan said “well you better shut that bitch up”.

    very classy louisville

    I just had a Louisville fan give me the following:

    1. U of L wins by 12 (80-68)
    2. Dienge has 20 points and 14 rebounds over Davis
    3. Angel Nunez plays and scores 14 points
    4. U of L shuts down Lamb

    Where do they come up with this stuff?

    What did Jackson County ever do to you DREW? Yes we do miss quite a bit in the winter, but our roads suck and I’m pretty sure that we don’t have the worst attendance in the state. I think Wolfe Co. Misses more than us.

    It means sitting at home watching a Bowl game, it means not EVER being banned from post season play, it means playing in the best facilities in the state( no bleacher seats in football/basketball) it means not having the only active coach to ever have 2 final 4’s vacated at 2 different schhols…

    Do Louisville fans forget that it took our old coach Pitino to make them relevant. They call him a legend but if he is, its for what he did at UK. Its like gettin a Corvette 12 years after it was brand new.

    It means having to hire a former standout KENTUCKY football player as head coach in the 80’s in order to ‘attempt’ to collide with destiny (and yet continually failing).

    It means hiring former KENTUCKY Basketball coach in the 90’s after firing legendary coach Denny Crum (and yet continually failing).

    It means being that little brother with a large Napoleon Complex (and yet continually failing).
