Tommy Hilfiger’s Sunday News and Views

 

 

Thomas Jacob Hilfiger, casually known as Tommy, is an American fashion designer and owner/founder of the Tommy Hilfiger fashion and lifestyle brand. Born in New York on March 24, 1951, Tommy is a direct descendent of the Scottish poet Robert Burns and passed up college in favor of learning machine shop trades and working retail starting at the age of 16. In 1984, he founded Tommy Hilfiger Corporation to launch what would become his signature menswear clothing line. He sold Tommy Hilfiger Corporation to a private investment company in 2006 for $1.6 billion. His daughter Ally was on the MTV series Rich Girls, and his son, Rich, is an aspiring rapper.

 

The above paragraph is incredibly boring. Here’s what you REALLY need to know about Tommy. When you Wikipedia “Hip hop fashion,” under the subsection “Urban Fashion” the following paragraph occurs:

 

Tommy Hilfiger was one of the most prominent brands in 1990s sportswear, though Polo Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Nautica, and DKNY were also popular. When Snoop Doggy Dogg wore a Hilfiger sweatshirt during an appearance on Saturday Night Live, it sold out of New York City stores the next day. Hilfiger’s popularity was due to its perceived waspiness, which made it seem exclusive and aspirational. Moreover, Hilfiger courted the new hip hop market: black models featured prominently in the company’s advertising campaigns, and rappers like Puffy and Coolio walked during its runway shows.

 

I have never been able to get over the fact that this Irish-Catholic raised, Hamptons-summer-goer, Scottish-poet-descended white guy was able to make clothes so appealing that rappers and hip hop artists HAD to have them. Mr. Hilfiger, you are a wizard.

 

Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that Hilfiger’s name is dropped during the best radio edit job of all time in A$AP Rocky’s song “F***in’ Problem”: “AT LEAST HILFIGER RIIIIIIIICH!” At least Hilfiger rich, indeed. Let’s get to the news and views.

 

-After Julius Randle’s commitment on Wednesday and the loss of one more available scholarship, Dominique Hawkins of Madison Central and KY High School State Championship fame has yet to make any concrete moves regarding his impending commitment. Hawkins received an offer from Purdue late this week, to go along with his current offers from South Carolina, Morehead State, Tennessee Tech, and Western Kentucky. Hawkins has also received a walk-on offer from Louisville and has heard from Tennessee, but says he is still waiting to hear form Kentucky, which he has explicitly called his “dream school.” But for now, we wait.

UK baseball won both games in today’s double header after poor weather forced a game delay last night. The Wildcats beat the Mississippi State Bulldogs 3-2 in the first game, and in the rubber match, the Cats won in dramatic fashion as Austin Cousino hit a walk-off for a 4-3 win. The Cats return to action Tuesday against Marshall.

The UK Hoops begin their NCAA Tournament run tomorrow against the Navy at 12:05 pm (ESPNU). The Cats’ #2 seed is their highest ever in the NCAA tournament, and the Cats will be playing in Queens, NY- near the hometowns of redshirt sophomore point guard Jennifer O’Neill (Bronx) and sophomore forward Jelleah Sidney (Queens Village). Junior forward Samantha Drake did not make the trip after being suspended for “not upholding team standards.” Drake had averaged 12 minutes and 3.6 points in the past five games. Scroll down for Wilder Treadway’s preview of what’s to come.

-Let’s make this point especially quick. Louisville looked every bit the number one overall seed as they steamrolled over Colorado State 82-56. The Cards forced 19 turnovers and outrebounded the Rams 29-24; Russ Smith led the Cards with 27 points. On the bright side? That horrible red is finally out of Rupp Arena as the Cards will play Oregon in Indianapolis in the Sweet 16 next weekend. It’s the little victories.

You know who’s not bitter about Louisville’s success in the tournament thus far? UK alum Ashley Judd. Check her tweet:

Was Kentucky’s favorite movie star in a gracious mood tonight? Or should we take this as a sign that Judd is planning a run for Kentucky senate and realizes she needs some Louisville votes?

-The Rupp Arena second and third round games came to a close tonight with the most exciting game of the day between Butler and Marquette (AND HOW AWESOME WAS THAT GAME?! Fun fact, Lexington native Lyle Wolf is a GA for Marquette). From what I’ve heard and seen, the atmosphere at Rupp has been electric for today’s sessions, and it’s nice to know that even when the Cats aren’t playing, Lexington can still remain the college basketball mecca of America. Attendance for the night was quoted at 20,601.

-While you were laying in bed, eating burritos, and watching March Madness all day, Kentucky’s football team was continuing their spring practice. Nick Roush has done a fabulous job of keeping you up-to-date on the happenings inside Nutter Field House, but look who showed up today to check in on the new coach:

Screen Shot 2013-03-23 at 9.30.56 PM

No word on whether Eli requested that the practice music playlist be turned off while he was in the building.

Reports are coming out that Ben Howland at UCLA was fired today following his team’s loss to Minnesota. If only Ben Howland’s dad had raised him to be a basketball coach from a young age.

**UPDATE: UCLA just released a statement saying that they have not fired Howland. Welp, this is awkward.**

 

Welcome to the off-season, folks. It’s going to be a long, sometimes slow 200 or so days until Big Blue Madness. We’ll get through this together. Andrew McCarthy and I will see you tomorrow. Sweet dreams, BBN.

    18) I know the feeling. I’m assuming there’ll be more rumors next week when the meetings happen. We’ll find out more about Harrow, Wiltjer, WCS, et al, and if Hawkins suddenly gets and offer, he’ll commit, and we’ll know Harrow is gone.

    I don’t think anything significant will happen with Wiggins til around the McD AA game.

    I’d love for him to sit down with the other 6 guys we have there and casually say on camera that he’s gonna go to UK.

    It is weird seeing Ashley root for UL, but why not keep the NCAA Basketball Championship in the state of Kentucky? They can win this year, then we will win the next five. Then one for them … and five more for us. (Kind of like “keep away!) Let’s make Kentucky basketball’s hallowed ground!

    It’s quite obvious that Ashley Judd is now trying to appeal to both sides because she’s about to run for office. She’s already being dishonest. Do not vote for her. There are plenty of other democrats that you can vote for in the primary.

    22- no way!!! I never want to see UofL win a championship. I’d love for us to be able to say Pitino only won a title at UK and never UofL, but Cal won multiple at UK. Never ever ever root for louisville to win the title. If you do someone should take your UK fan card from you

    Ashley loves the Cats more than any other team. Getting bent out of shape over one pro-Card comment just shows insecurity. The sooner the lonely, crazy, unrealistic UK fans can realize that even with a successful 2013 UL season they’re still miles behind UK, the better off the entire fanbase will be.

    #22 you are dead on. I would love to see it stay in the state of Kentucky than North Carolina. UK has nothing to worry about over Louisville. I would love to see Western Kentucky to become a powerhouse as well. We are Kentucky and they will always be the little brother and sister.

    Ashley Judd is a freakin joke. Why don’t she just run for mayor of loserville? They can have her traitor @ss. All this crap about her being BBN biggest fan, BULL$HIT. She only shows up at big time games like Carolina or UL and that’s just so CBS will show her as the “Biggest UK Fan”. Piss on her and she would be a pitiful politician. She’s a left turn of left.

    With Ash so called thinking of running for Senate, she has to now play both sides, typical. UL not going to win it all, so it’s irrelevant, just like UL is outside the city limits of Louisville.

    There are few things gayer & annoying than “real fan” “true fan” & the worst of all “fan card”. All of the things you “real fans” accuse Louisville fans of being is exactly how y’all are acting. Obsessing over the other school is pathetic & petty. I love UK bball & football & will always consider UL little brother. So I’m not threatened by them & wouldn’t mind at all if they win the title, hell I’m rootin for em. Way better option than Indiana! So I guess y’all can have my fan card, & all of its imaginary lame worth.

    Ashley Judd’s already too progressive, intelligent and educated for the majority of this ignorant state to feel any sort of connection to her and to have any chance of getting elected to public office in this state. Fortunately for her, those same idiots are probably in the camp that define their UK basketball fandom by petty hatred of rival programs instead of pride in their state, so I doubt she lost any additional votes with that tweet.

    Both. Because unlike you ignorant children she was there when Pitino resurrected this program. You total noobs can’t possible understand it you weren’t there. You’re half-ass fans that think your experience of UK is all that matters. Ignorant kids that don’t have a clue to the history of the program. You sure love to use the banners though don’t you?

    You morons saying to not vote for Judd because she is rooting for Louisville do realize that Mitch is a die hard Cardinal Fan and donor, right?

    #78 – At least he is man enough to stick with one school. Don’t recall him tweeting about Cal and UK and giving them props last time he was running.

    “We, the people of the great state of Tennessee, cast all of our delegates for President Obama.” – Ashley Judd

    I actually feel sorry for Ashley. She allowed some publicist or handler to type a ‘political maneuver’ into her Twitter account. While that tweet MIGHT get her 5 votes she didn’t already have, it cost her 50% of the BBN’s love and admiration (that she didn’t really deserve anyway). Wanna bet she is hanging all over Rick at the Derby – no matter if uofl wins another game in the tourney or not.

    good one #78…it doesn’t upset the conservatives because most of them don’t – can’t read so they don’t what’s going on in the world.
    I agree with you #52 , #53 sounds like an uneducated redneck. Some of you ignorant people make it hard to read the comment section. Nothing wrong with blowing up a mountain, and polluting our water to get a little coal and destroying the very land we call home. GO BIG BUSINESS. I want me some cheap power.
    I’d rather Louisville win than either IU or Duke any freeking day.

    Rupp was electric today? Did the coaches have to tell the fans to stand and cheer for the final 8 minutes of the games?

    #52) really? What has she ever done to warrant consideration for elected office? She is an actress, you know a person who “acts” like they are somebody or something else. She has no real world practical experience so not sure where the “progressive” bs comes from, she lives in TN but now wants to carpetbag rep KY, and her pseudo liberal-elite intellectualism is borrowed ideology. She has done some nice things for Darfur and women’s rights, but the real question is wtf does she know about legit issues like debt reduction, economic issues, national security, etc? Nada. Her tweet is transparently pathetic pandering that discredits her IMO. #15minutesareover

    Question has been on my mind for a long time- who the hell decided that ashley judd is/was UK #1 fan- I’ve never missed at least watching televised games since 1963 and simply because I don’t have the financial wherewith all to attend their games- she’s a bigger fan than me? Further I hope she throws her hat in the ring- as much as I dislike mcconnell- as dirty a
    campaigner as he is- she’ll very soon learn just how well her liberal ides play in this state.

    Why do you think Ashley lives in Tn vs the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The liberal doesn’t pay state income tax on her millions of dollars. You don’t say Go Cards.. You say good luck or Congrats…Let’s see.. Now she’s a disloyal card fan that hates coal and babies. It’s for her own good to stop now.

    The bigger question is how are UK fans going to deal with it when UL does win it all this year. This is going to be a hard pill to swallow over the summer. Pitino feels it this year and his arrogance is starting to show with veiled shots at UK’s recruiting philosophy. He has a team steam rolling at just the right time beating everybody by a large margin. They look unstoppable to me. When Russ Smith passes the ball he is unguardable. Their defensive style makes it impossible for the opposing team to run their offense. Sure, they foul on almost every possession but the game has been allowed to become so physical refs don’t call them. I don’t see anyone who can beat them unless they have an off night.

    For those that say McConnell is a Louisville fan…he’s a loyal fan. It’s the timing here… Our players are sitting in COAL lodge hurting while UL is in their house. Maybe she’ll mix up her phones with Siva at the Final four in her red this year. Loyalty is the key here.. She could have followed up with a tweet saying I bleed blue but nope… She knows all the bleeding liberal pro choice folks live in Louisville.

    I’m registered Independent, I support Natural Gas, I voted for Obama, I’m Pro-Choice, I own several guns and support the 2nd Amendment, I’m an Afghan Vet, I wouldn’t support Ashley Judd or McConnell, I hate UofL, I live in Louisville. I’m a UK season ticket holder. Does any of this make me less of a UK fan ? No I don’t think so. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, people need to chill and if you don’t like something VOTE otherwise keep your ignorance to yourself. Better yet do the world a favor and don’t pass any of that nonsense on to your innocent children.
