Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

This is unacceptable.

A fan at Saturday’s game was caught reading Bloomberg Businessweek while the Wildcats were fighting off Eastern Michigan for their fourth win of the season.

As you can see, he has a pretty good seat that many other people would love to have on a football Saturday. And to make things worse, it wasn’t even the latest edition of the magazine.

This is unacceptable and I think Kroger should do something about it.

Kentucky will never make the jump in the SEC with Bloomberg readers taking up the good real estate.

    In his defense, he was reading about CATalonia.

      Too much sun in the picture for that, maybe halftime but the sun was setting during the 4th quarter and it’s still over the stadium at the time.

      Maybe at halftime? At least that would be acceptable

    In his defense, the game lasted forever, there was 500 timeouts and each one seemed like it lasted forever. He could have read War and Peace and still not miss a minute of action.

    I’m sure he really cares about your unwarranted opinion. I love you Drew, but to quote the ‘all knowing Matt Jones,’ “Just stop.”

    I mean, the Catalonian Independence movement is one which can have a huge effect on Spain and the EU, why not read about it at a football game. Especially when you know were just gonna run it up the middle three straight times.

    The FL fan sitting next to me at the basketball game in Gainesville was watching a hockey game on his phone throughout the game.

    Drew, you must not have been to the game. Any time our offense was on the field was a good time to do something else worthwhile as a fan. Good for this guy.

    I assume this post is tongue-in-cheek, but it’s also… dare I say “unacceptable”? Most likely there was nothing going on at the moment, but regardless of that why put an individual dude on blast for such an innocuous thing? Probably I’m just hangry/tired but this kinda irks me; it doesn’t come off as particularly good-natured.

    Drew getting crushed for taking up for boring football while he was also admitted to being distracted on the football podcast

    As long as we struggle with teams like EASTERN MICHIGAN, it will be hard to hold fan interest….Every football season feels like the two years Billy G was coaching basketball.

    I’ll have to admit I’m somewhat torn on this article. “Unacceptable”? I was at this weeks game one week after the Florida game which I was at as well. This week’s crowd seemed ‘hungover’ for lack of better words. Student section was about 20% and the stadium as a whole was probably at 60% capacity. That Florida crowd was giving this particular team and our coach recognition for what they have done to turn this thing into a winner. This same guy (who looks like he’s got his life in order and is paying his bills, one of which is a full price season ticket behind the end zone in the corner next to the band and student section and facing the setting sun) was probably at that game as well and also witnessed a few ‘unacceptable’ plays when it mattered. I’m sure he was poised to rush the field last week just as I was. I think he came this past week expecting some fireworks on the field early and often. I think he witnessed a one play turnover and then a one play score and was ticked off like everybody else in the stadium. (Freddie warned us this was a very well coached team)

    I support my team and that will not ever change. I’m doing my part supporting the ticket hike for the renovation at Commonwealth Stadium. I’m onboard with Administrations investment in our football program, BUT Matt Jones quoted that Kentucky football fans have given more and received less than any other fan in sports. I believe that to be true. I don’t think this guy will be shocked either when LSU or some other high profile job comes calling and he decides to take it.

    So, if this guy wants to read his magazine, that’s his prerogative. Who are you to say otherwise? Tradition in sports comes with winning. You simply either have it or your trying to win into it.

    We know no facts about this picture. Judging it without facts is foolhardy and childish. This could have been half time or during a time out.

    Bloomberg guy gets kudos for coming to the game prepared. I was there and I got up to go get a hot dog in the first quarter and to go to the can in the fourth quarter. I wasn’t hungry and I didn’t need to pee. I however was both frustrated and bored. I think before the Missouri I’ll go pick up one of those word search books just in case.

    Run, run, run, punt. You don’t have to look at the field to know what’s happening.
