UK Fan of the Day Want Afternoon Notes and Podcast

Today’s UK Fan of the Day took his porcelain Kentucky gnome to Florida for a weekend on the beach. I’m going to pretend like I don’t see anything else in that photo.

Moving on…

— If you stayed up late last night to watch Anthony Davis play for Team USA, you went to bed disappointed once the game ended. Davis did not see the floor in Team USA’s exhibition game against Argentina. Team USA jumped out to an early lead on Manu and the Argentinians, but that lead dwindled throughout, down to a single digit deficit in the final minutes. Kevin Durant led the way with 27 points in the 86-80 victory.

— Chris Walker committed to the Florida Gators in an oddly timed Sunday morning announcement, and he’s already hitting the streets of Twitter to recruit others to join him in Gainesville.

Yeah, good luck with that.

— Terrence Jones DOMINATED the NBA Summer League, but was surprisingly snubbed from the All-Summer League Team when it was announced yesterday. Jones averaged 18.2 points and 8.6 rebounds in five games, but couldn’t manage to join his two teammates, Jeremy Lamb and Donatas Motiejunas, on the list.

— Former Kentucky safety Marcus McClinton is taking his music career very seriously, and it really shows in this video, featuring sound bytes from the most powerful motivational speech ever.

— Jacob Tamme and a few of his fellow Denver Broncos visited victims from the Aurora, Colorado shooting in the hospital yesterday. Tamme used Twitter to share his thoughts from the day:

“Wow. I’ve got to tell ya, that visit was simply incredible. Had no idea what to expect walking in those doors. But the staff, victims, & families were so impressive. The loss of life is so tragic, but the spirit, resolve, & gratitude in that hospital was just awesome. So many amazing stories of heroism.

“A man shot in the leg telling the story of the 17 year old girl who stopped as others ran by & used her belt as a tourniquet on his leg. Nurses bragging on doctors, & doctors bragging on nurses. One doctor had no time to wait for an OR & began surgery in middle of the ER. Another victim and his friend jumped on the friends wife, and he took a bullet in the arm and leg. Met all 3 of them. Just incredible.

“Still some in critical condition, but amid all the chaos at Aurora Medical that morning, no loss of life … Bottom line, this is still a tragic story due to the awful loss of life. But it was great to see these folks who showed such courage. and, for a couple hrs in that hospital, no one spoke about a madman, but instead they told the stories that give u faith in humanity.”

— Matt and Ryan recorded today’s show at the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati UK Alumni Golf Scramble, where they pulled former UK greats James Lee and “Goose” Givens away from the golf for a couple of interviews. Matt also told the story of sending Jeff Goodman and the boys a round of drinks, only to be turned down by the crew.

    Damn man this will cause nightmares. Please take that down. This is uncouth. It should be against the law to post pictures like that to unsuspecting people. You should be required to post some kind of warning. C’on man

    Dang, Drew, please save those kinds of pictures for the UofL fans – not BBN. Thanks.

    Would LOVE to have Wiggins & the H. Twins.

    There has never been a more irrelevant award in the history of sports if TJ didn’t make the All-Summer team. He was arguably the best player in the entire league. Stern must have wrote the summer league script too early. Must be busy writing the one for next years regular season and playoffs.

    This may be the proudest day of my life. My brother, his UK gnome and “Taterpants” appear together on KSR.

    I’ll be glad when Drew Franklin matures and stops embarrassing Kentucky people in general and UK fans and supporters in specific. Why would you DREW, put up that ‘beach’ picture “UK Fan of the day” unless you just wanted everyone that visits the site to wonder what kind of a person would post that kind of a photo? It’s not funny Drew…it’s immature, childish, and embarrassing. Grow up.

    Looks like two typical UK fans to me, maybe a bit more attractive than most of them I would say.

    15. — It was e-mailed to me by the guy in the picture with the subject “KSR Fan of the Day.” Thanks for the feedback.

    Now that I know your on here Drew. I like KSR and think you do a good job. However I do think you owe us a apology for the nightmares this will cause most who seen the pic. Then you should E-mail the guy who sent this to you and he should apologize to you. This pic is really uncouth.

    Glad you see you do see these comments Drew. Just because you receive a picture marked “fan of the day” does not mean you will-should-or HAVE to put it on the site. In the future, use some discretion and don’t embarrass yourself and/or BBN. Thanks

    Didn’t have to stay up late to see team USA. It was on NBA tv at around 5 pm EST yesterday. I thought it was live at midnight and had the DVr to record but found it in the forth quarter, channel surfing a little past 6 pm.

    The people who write for this website must be retarded. The Olympic exhibition happened at 3:30 pm est and was broadcast on NBA tv. Howie Lindsay would do better than this..

    Y’all need to lighten up. This pic is hilarious! Methinks #15 doth protest too much…perhaps the shemale turned him on a bit?
