All work and no play is no fun. Mark Stoops understands that, and that’s why the Kentucky football team celebrated the beginning of the summer season with a crawfish boil. After hearing a seminar on brand development, the team hit the practice field to toss corn hole, play wiffle ball and enjoy some of Louisiana’s finest crawfish. As you’ll see, Stoops doesn’t have a bad swing.
?? = the perfect start to summer conditioning.

C.J. Conrad was able to get in on the action. The All-SEC tight end’s season ended early last year when he broke his foot at Georgia. The rehab appears to have worked. Conrad had no trouble sprinting to first base to beat out a throw.
Speaking of baseball…
Kentucky had the Most MLB Draft Picks
The Kentucky baseball failed to make the postseason, but they successfully put 13 players into the Major Leagues. That’s right, THIRTEEN Kentucky Wildcats were selected in the MLB Draft, more than any other college program. The 21 picks over the last two seasons are also an NCAA best. Some of this year’s later selections will likely return to school. Trey Huntsman will break down those decisions in the near future.
KD is the Worst
And LeBron is the best.

I know Durant’s Warriors won a game three that basically ended the series, thanks to his 43 points and decisive three-pointer with less than a minute to go, but that doesn’t mean I still can’t hate KD. He ruined a fun rivalry between the Cavs and the Warriors by joining the team he couldn’t beat. He waited to show up until Steph Curry played his worst game. Durant shortened the basketball season in consecutive years and he’s the reason Red Panda can’t even stay on her unicycle.

What a Louisville Fan
This Cardinal fan buzzing around downtown Louisville yesterday. His over-the-top ensemble is ridiculous, but impressive. That kind of dedication commands respect, especially while rocking socks with sandals.
