UK Fan at Fenway Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast

photo

Meet Brad. He’s a Danville native who has been working in Boston since the day of the Marathon bombings. He decided to show his support for the Cats and the Boston community by taking in a game at Fenway earlier this week. Good on ya for being Boston Strong, Brad.

Now, a few notes from the day…

Larry Warford will likely find out his fate tonight during the second and third rounds of the NFL Draft (6:30 p.m. ET, ESPN). A record nine offensive linemen were drafted in the first round, which means that Warford’s chances of being drafted in the second round are very, very good. Go get ’em, War Daddy.

— It appears Matt Elam has new suitors. Elam tweeted that both Florida and Vandy visited him at John Hardin this morning, and according to Jon Shartzer, the Gators sent none other than Joker Phillips. The 6’6″ 325 lb. defensive tackle has said that Florida is interested, but it appears they are getting closer to giving him an offer. I just hope he was wearing a UK shirt when Joker showed up.

— The Lakers will be without Steve Nash,Steve Blake, Kobe Bryant AND Jodie Meeks tonight after Meeks injured his ankle. The Los Angeles Daily News reports that an MRI on Jodie’s left ankle revealed a partial ligament tear. Get well soon, buddy.

— It looks like Cal might have a new saying. On Twitter this morning, he quoted a high school AD who had watched all his teams and came away with this: “Body language always screams; it never whispers.” Get ready to hear that a lot.

— Today, the world lost one of its greatest country singers and characters. George Jones passed at the age of 81 at Vanderbilt hospital in Nashville. The stories about the hard-drinking and story-telling “Possum” are endless, and I encourage you to share your favorite memories in the comments section. For now, I’ll leave you with one of his many classics, “He Stopped Loving Her Today” from the Grand Ole Opry.

— On today’s show, Matt and Ryan talked about Rick Pitino’s tattoo, the passing of George Jones, and played America’s new favorite game, “Ask Anything” in the second hour. Tune in at talkradio1080.com.

    I still have the un-used ticket from when “No Show” stood me (and a bunch of others) up a club in Richmond. I still feel honored. 😀

    Just heard that Drew Thornton died in a parachuting accident. Is this true?

    So Joker is recruiting a defensive tackle to come #playwrforthejoker? Personally, I would have sent a line coach.

    Favorite story of Ole Possum is the one were his second wife took away all the car keys so he couldn’t drive to the liquor store. So he went on his riding mower….Classic!!!!!

    Totally unrelated but news: Digger Phelps apparently has cancer. I hope UK fans keep it classy.

    I remember when this website used to talk about Kentucky, but all it talks about is Louisville. Louisville this. Louisville that. I look on cardchronicle.com occasionally and the posts are never about Kentucky. I wish we had a website like Card Chronicle

    I may not agree with everything Digger Phelps does or says, but he’s human and I HATE cancer. Here’s to hoping Digger kicks cancer’s ass. Get well soon, Digger

    I saw George Jones one at at the Executive Inn in Owensboro when I sang one song three times and another one twice and apparently did not realize it. This was during his so-called sober years.
    But he was a hellava singer and showman.

    Bladder cancer sppears to be one of the more treatable cancers. I know of one person who has survived 4 years and another at least 8 years after having a new bladder made from a section of their small intestines. Good luck to Digger. Cancer is an evil thing.

    I did get to see Jerry Lee Lewis, Willie Nelson, Rolling Stones, Ray Charles, and many others without leaving Lexington. I missed George at the MAC in Prestonsburg, some things you don’t get back.

    Joker is Florida’s recruiting coordinator. That’s why he was sent. He told Matt that they want him to come down for their Friday Night Lights camp this summer. He’ll likely receive an offer then.

    Sometimes I think people don’t realize that it wasn’t an attack on Boston it was an attack on the USA!
