From time-to-time I’ll see a ridiculous car on Kentucky’s wonderful roadways — maybe a Cadillac with 40 inch rims or a truck with a six-pack of giant smoke stacks — and think to myself, “That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen somebody do to a car.” Wrong.
This is the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen anybody do to a car. It’s so spectacularly stupid, it’s fantastic.
Unfortunately, the picture doesn’t do justice to what I saw yesterday on Hurstbourne Lane in Louisville: a Ford Taurus monster truck. It rumbled like something you’d see at Monster Jam, but it was a Ford Taurus, eight feet into the air. I don’t know how this person gets into their car. I don’t know how it’s street legal. I don’t know how this this concoction was created, but I’m glad the Monster Taurus exists on the roads of the great Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Now, back to UK sports. After all, that’s why you’re here.
Anthony Davis got Beat Up
The kid can’t catch a break. He missed a few days last week with an injured hip. He re-injured that hip and his left thumb after taking a hard fall in the third quarter of today’s loss to the Pacers.
Luckily, x-rays produced negative results, but these injuries must stop.
Rondo Can’t Last Much Longer
We always knew Rondo was a jerk. It’s not helping him in the latter stages of his career. Benched by the Bulls, he’s trying to earn more time in the NBA by using his words…poorly.
“Last year, you couldn’t name three people on my team…and I led the league in assists,” Rondo told David Aldridge.
Last year Rondo was one of three former Cats on the Sacramento Kings, joining DeMarcus Cousins and Willie Cauley-Stein.
A KY Wildcats TV Recap of Auburn Game

Bad News for UofL
Louisville will be without their starting point guard, Quentin Snider, for 2-3 weeks, but that’s not the real bad news.
Tomorrow the university will submit its response to the NCAA’s Notice of Allegations regarding the parties thrown at Minardi Hall by Andre McGee and Katina Powell. The response will not be public, but Tom Jurich previously stated they will argue Rick Pitino should not be charged with “failure to monitor.” The NCAA has 60 days to counter before the case heads to the Committee on Infractions. The Committee on Infractions will decide if UofL’s self-inflicted postseason ban was enough punishment.
For many Louisivlle fans, this is actually good news. The end is near for the “Breaking Cardinal Rules” scandal. By the start of the NCAA Tournament, they might be able to put this behind them for good…until a friendly Kentucky fan reminds them.
Willie Taggart Doesn’t Play
Oregon players rejoiced when Willie Taggart was hired as their next head coach. Many have probably changed their tune after he put them to work. Taggart’s first order of business: use the first workout to crush their souls by sending three players to the hospital. This commenter’s take is the only one you need.
