For people of a certain age (30-40?), “Full House” was as part of childhood as Trapper Keepers, Pogs, and Squeez-Its. In our house, Friday night meant pizza and the whole TGIF lineup: “Full House,” “Family Matters,” “Step-by-Step,” and the under-appreciated “Dinosaurs.” “Full House” was the highlight of the night, even if it was cheesy as hell and we all hated Danny’s sappy speeches at the end of each episode. I really do believe “Full House” is ingrained into the subconscious of most 80’s/90’s kids, to the point that if a rerun comes on and there’s nothing on TV at all, well, okay, fine, it’ll just be there, in the background, a soundtrack to your childhood.
That’s why I’m so excited about the premiere of “Fuller House.” The first episode, “Our Very First Show, Again” dropped on Netflix today, and even if it’s terrible, I’m watching. Why? Because the original “Full House” was actually terrible, a sad realization I came to during college. “How did I watch this?!” I mused over my Easy Mac. “This is not funny at all. Oh God, I actually hate Uncle Joey. Cut it out! No, really, cut it out!”
Regardless, in an age of 90’s nostalgia, I can’t help but tune in. Especially after listening to the new theme song by Carley Rae Jepsen:
Like I said, terrible, but I’m hooked. Let’s hurry this up so I can watch the first episode over breakfast.
John Calipari and players will preview Vandy
The team is getting ready to head down to Nashville, but first, John Calipari and a few players will talk to the media. Will Derek Willis be able to play tomorrow? I’d be shocked, but you never know. Hopefully we’ll get an injury update. Check the site around 1 p.m. for a live stream and a little later for a recap.
Duke’s Grayson Allen tripped another player last night
That’s the second time Allen has tripped a player in a month. Seriously, what a punk.
The NFL Combine starts today
Josh Forrest and AJ Stamps are in Indianapolis this weekend for the NFL Combine. Today, they’ll go through measurements and media rounds before the bench press and on-field workouts on Saturday and Sunday. Last year, Bud Dupree and Za’Darius Smith’s huge performances in the Combine help elevate their draft stock, Bud into the first round. Will Forrest and Stamps see similar results? You can watch for yourself on either the NFL Network or NFL.com. I’ll pass along any major updates.
Speaking of Cats in the NFL…
It looks like Avery Williamson is enjoying the offseason
Holy old school photo op, Batman!

Good news: Morgan Freeman is finally a Waze voice
I rarely drive anywhere without using Waze for navigation, and over the years, there have been some great Waze navigation voices: Elvis, Stephen Colbert, Kevin Hart, Neil Patrick Harris, etc. But the latest trumps them all: Morgan Freeman. Will it be as good as this parody commercial someone made a few years ago?
I hope so. Even if I know Waze is messing up, I will literally go wherever Morgan Freeman tells me to.
KSR is at the McDonald’s in Russell Springs
If you’re in the area, come on out to 251 South Highway 127 to enjoy and register to win some tickets. Sounds like the perfect way to start the weekend if you ask me.
