You’re looking at Jay Brinker, a Cincinnati attorney and guest blogger for the Cincinnati Enquirer. In this morning’s “Doc’s TML” column, Brinker goes over yesterday’s sports highlights, including UK’s loss to UCLA. He starts off easily enough, talking about last year’s game and Kentucky’s woes in the paint, but then things get a little weird. Brinker admits he “enjoys when Calipari and his kids lose,” and in the next sentence, brings up ISIS being contained:
UK Loses. How things change in a year. Last year UK drilled UCLA by starting 24-0 and then continued the pummeling en route to a 39 point victory. Last night, UCLA avenged the loss by winning 87-77. Apparently, according to this analytic journalism article that far exceeds my casual sports knowledge, UK had a difficult time scoring in the paint. Sorry for your Wildcats’ loss Kathy, Greg, and Big Blue Nation. No, not really. I actually enjoy when Calipari and his kids lose. Speaking of things changing, it was only 3 weeks ago that ISIS was contained.
Clumsy transition or is Brinker actually trying to compare Calipari and Kentucky basketball to ISIS? For his sake, I’m going with the former, not the latter because nobody could be that dumb, right?
