UK Fans of the Day Want Five Things to Read

We are five days away from marching into Papa John’s Stadium and getting the win that will make #LineBeardSadness trend throughout America. In that spirit, there are lots of things out there that you should read, and I am here to help you find them:

1. The Darker Side of Louisville: If you haven’t been in our state’s biggest city then you have probably missed the biggest story of the week. While doing renovations on Louisville’s “Whiskey Row” downtown, workers found the existence of an Underground Sex Club from times gone by. As the story above showcases, the Club dates back many decades and had long since been abandoned. But it included “disturbing” drawings and images and a number of “torture” devices. WHAS 11’s story has more pictures but the one below showcased enough for me to realize that if this is how people were rolling in the 1950s, “Leave it to Beaver” must not have been all that accurate.

2. World Trade Center Politics: As we get ready for two weeks of political conventions, another kind of politics is the focus of this fascinating article from Esquire. After September 11, everyone agreed that something needed to be rebuilt to replace the World Trade Center. But what, when and how has been a constant debate. At this point however, the delays to the construction of the Freedom Tower are not due to theories, but due to the vagaries of local politics and corruption. A stunning read from Esquire that is both infuriating and sad.

3. Knowing Your Enemy: The Louisville game is Sunday and for most of you, simply hating the Cardinals may be sufficient. But for those of you, like me, who want to know a little bit more, these Louisville Cardinal Game notes are worth a looksie. They have been invaluable for me getting ready for the pregame show and will give you all the info you need to make the (logical) argument that the Cats can beat down the Dirty Birds on Sunday.

4. Seeing Greatness: With the US Open in full effect, it is worth looking back at the greatest article ever written about Tennis in history. David Foster Wallace’s ode to Roger Federer, “Federer as Religious Experience” is unmatched in terms of writing ability and description of an athlete at his prime form. It also helped change the view of Federer as an uninteresting clog. It is beautiful, something you can almost never say about any type of sportswriting.

5. Literary College Football: Blogging is an odd thing. It gives a ton of different perspectives on sports topics and allows a voice to a different type of writer that would otherwise be muted. But lets face it…a lot of blogging sucks. However the most unsucky blogging can make you laugh in a way that an article in a newspaper could never do. This take on the the Big 12 as previewed by Cormac McCarthy is hilarious and clever in a way that you rarely see. It is the best blog I have read in at least a month and one of the few that I have bookmarked for the future.

So there you go…five reads to get you through a Tuesday. #LouisvilleHateDay is two days away….

    It was actually a thorough write-up, but I got a kick out of this comment in the UL piece, “The Cardinals remain strong when scoring more than 20 points in a game and allowing fewer than 20 to their opponents.” I would venture to guess UK is pretty stong in those situations as well. I would even go on a limb and say they are undefeated in that situation!

    That may be the single greatest FOD picture KSR has ever posted. Thank you, Mr. Jones. Thank you.

    Seeing the pic of the girls has to make you wonder how guys can “play for the other team”.

    I can’t even figure out what they would have done with that thing in the picture. What kinky thing did they use the circular saw for????? Maybe I don’t have enough imagination…

    12. I’m thinking it was actual torture. They were on the wrong track here. I’ll bet this was where some psycho cut girls up to dispose of the bodies.

    Isn’t that Latex Club where U of L fans used to go for their post-game parties?

    12 and 14, it’s not a circular saw. it’s a ratcheting device to turn the dowel that the chain is wrapped around.

    Thank you Matt for the link to the article by David Foster Wallace on Roger Federer. Simply an amazing example of writing. I’m always mystified by writers who can, simultaneous, convey deep insight, do so almost lyrically, and manage to not be even subtlety pedantic. It is also a credit to you that you so often make note of writing like this. Much appreciated.

    In the Louisville game notes they have Shawn Watson as the Offensvive Coordinator. Guess they have been reading KSR. Oh ya, and the girls are smokin’

    SexnNursingHomes; calm down. Those babes are way too young for you. You prefer the more mature type; you know, the maturity that comes with being 85 years old.

    Matt, you read and believe the Esquire article? Please its all rubbish. Stay center and quit trying to force your liberal views when you can slide them in.

    30) I agree. BTW, that thing is called “the rack” ironically.

    Matt, how many NSFW photos do you receive via e-mail? You should definitely create a NSFW weblink with some of the better photos you and Drew receive that you can’t share on the everyday website.

    I think the one on the left works at Hooters in Lex. If it’s her, it’s a bad picture of her. She is absolutely smokin’ hot in person. By far my favorite there.
