There has probably been no post of UK fans’ pictures that has caused more debate than the couples wearing matching shirts from yesterday. I have had multiple conversations where guys (and girls) have debated when (if ever) it is ok to wear such a shirt and it has been a constant topic throughout the Bluegrass. Now comes word that there is apparently a MATCHING SHIRT PHENOMENON overtaking Eastern Kentucky University (where these kids go). Above is another couple in matching shirts, this time with “Courtney’s Crush.” EKU has always seemed to me to be the place of men of integrity and masculinity. But now, it is just another place for pastel colors and matching shirts. If I see a “Brooke’s Boo” or a “Sarah’s Sweetheart” coming soon, I may not be able to look at Richmond the same way again (and by the way if you have more of these…please feel free to send them along).
To the news:
— Where in the World is John Calipari? has been the question of the day. First he was in Wisconsin, Texas, Seattle, Guam, an Icelandic volcano and orbiting Neptune, all in the interest of putting together a monster class. What is important however is that tomorrow he will visit Marquis Teague for one last sell on the superstar point guard for 2011. Teague decides on Thursday at 1:30 pm for another one of those “KSR Server crash” moments that will live with us for some time. It is the biggest UK vs UL recruiting battle since Samaki Walker..stay tuned.
— For Louisville, this has been a terrible Card week and the Teague decision could make it worse. Lose Michael Chandler, have a ridiculous arena name and then announce Samuels is coming back while the Jamaica Basketball Association says “Hey Mon, he is going to the NBA!” The Card program has looked out of whack and a Teague loss might just confirm it even stronger. But hey, at least Peyton Siva will be back to crush John Wall.
— Apparently Laura Bell Bundy did the John Wall dance on Good Morning America. I remember Laura from when she was a kid from Lexington and supposedly dated McCauley Culkin (the Home Alone Culkin, not the “Monster” McCauley). Laura is rising up the country music charts and will give Kentucky yet another famous person to wet their appetites on until BTI has his breakout performance on “Tool Academy 4” next year.
— John Wall and Erin Andrews tweeted to each other last night about voting for the blond bombshell on Dancing With the Stars. I think its cool that Wall and Cal like Erin, but my vote goes to Kate Gosselin. She is a freak of nature and tv needs more of her craziness. He also is talking with a rapper that apparently is named “Chamillionaire”…I hear he does good work.
— CJ Leslie could decide any day…there are rumors it might even happen in the next 48 hours…I have no idea but I would say there is a chance he either will…or wont. Ok that will be ten dollars.
More later today….I will be on WHAS 840 AM with Terry Meiners at 4:30 pm to talk UK recruiting…tune in.
