What Happens When You Wear a Bad Shirt to the KSTV Casting Call?

Will Mapes, the producer who is getting more famous by the day, was not a fan of one of our contestant’s shirts. So he told him about it…in a way that still makes me laugh just thinking about it. He and one other contestant are below and both do a decent job. Check them out and remember that Saturday is your last chance to cover UK for a (part-time) living. KSTV Casting Call in Louisville at Sam Swope Honda from 10 am to noon…be there…and watch this:

    Loved Chase’s personality, but when it comes to thinking on your feet, making valid points, and seemingly having good knowledge about UK athletics, I like the second guy. Not sure how he would come across on television but maybe consider him to possibly be a contributor to the site?

    Matt I once wore a bad shirt. It happened to be on senior picture day and my
    Legend has lived in infamy since. As a fellow nerd Im sure you can relate. It was
    Two years later that I lost
    My virginity. The sweetness of that moment of living I shall never forget. It was as if the qe won the 97 championship thus three in a row. And I in turn came like a donkey desperate to make the 49 goldrush the most influential moment in history. No homo

    He has the same shirt on as Perrin Johnson, it’s just a different color and a bit more wrinkled. That producer did hire Perrin Johnson right? Perrin Johnson did show up to work in that shirt right? Eat crow Mr. Producer.

    so will mapes dogs a guy for a sub-par shirt but says NOTHING to MJ who is still sporting a center part? A CENTER PART? REALLY?!?!
    I can think of 2 people total with a full on center part, and both are age 75+. The few – The Proud – The Center Parts.

    1) The producer is a narcissistic jerk it seems. Don’t like him ….
    2) Matt, the first guy’s argument was more than just what happened in the last ten years. I don’t agree with a new arena, but I thought his overall argument was sound. He said after the last ten years, our tradition was tarnished (paraphrasing this obviously) and with a new coach and new success, the new arena would add to the renewed tradition. I totally get what he is saying. Why didn’t you? Were you listening?

    3) The tryouts are cool. Keep up the good work Jones, but you dissed the first kid a little unecessarily, though you are certainly allowed to make a few mistakes!

    I was too hard on the producer, sounded harsh, but still does not seem like a guy I’d like to know or work around….

    Matt — Couldn’t make the first round in Lexington so I was really looking forward to auditioning Saturday. Unfortunately my work schedule was just changed by my boss and though I tried to rearrange things I could not. I have no time to arrange a video clip. Is there anything I can do to be considered?

    I’m sorry, but this is more of what is turning this die-hard Cats fan off of KSR. Too much of the frat-guy insiders slapping backs and making what snarky fun they can out of those of us not cool enough to be them. Loved you guys once upon a time, but that’s the way I feel. Yeah, some of our fans have funny accents, and don’t wear the latest fashions. Matt Jones et al. need to remember they were raised by some of those same fans.
