Stoops on whether the stadium will be done by Sept. 5: “I hope so”

We’ve been hearing some rumblings that the new Commonwealth Stadium may not be completely finished by the season opener on September 5th. I asked Stoops about that this morning, and while he didn’t give me an answer, there was a bit of anxiety on his face.

I hope so. You have to talk to Russ Pear on that,” Stoops said to laughter. “I did drive by there yesterday and walked in the stadium, took a look around. I saw progress.”

How often does Stoops check in on the progress?

“I don’t go in there too often, to be honest with you,” he said. “Once every week or two. I tried to stay away as they were laying the turf. I really wanted to see it when it was done, but I peeked in there a few times. Obviously it’s done now and settling in. The field really looks good and the stadium is coming together.

Now, can someone get us Russ Pear’s number so we can ask him?

    My life is so pathetic, lonely, and sad, that all I can think of to do with my time is try to annoy people.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    This, coming from a total loser in the back bedroom of his mother’s trailer, after crown and coke hangover from an allnighter at the local strip club in Louisville, where his sister works cleaning toilets, in between “performances.”
    Do yourself a favor, get a job, and stay off the phone modem and your mother’s computer.

    Let’s begin with a specific reply to you, then, shall we?

    It was to allow more people to specifically join my comment, not to be part of yours, Genius.

    I am a genius, thank you for noticing, and this is response is specific to you; your comparitive IQ would make most people appear to be a genius, obviously.

    Now get off your sister, you’re crushing her smokes, and she needs to go to work.

    Toilets don’t clean themselves, and the tip money pays the rent of your mother’s trailer.

    By the way, I did not see you at the last MENSA gathering. Lose your job doing the valet gig for our meetings?

    Lets just hope for better weather. If the rain and storms continue its hard to imagine that it gets completed.
