    Yeah that is what they should be called. Participation Rings!

    Anymore breaking UL news? I am sure there will be something.

    I would like to pledge to ignore a certain troll if they show up here today, so that I do not end up saying something mean.

      I gave up on yesterday. There’s no arguing with trolls. they are too stubborn and don’t realize (or care) they are

      a) completely ridiculous
      b) inconsistent
      c) hypocritical
      d) without facts
      e) still little brother

      cats paw – total football National Championships won by Louisville and UK since 2012 = 0. That’s what matters most. I guess SEC games are your national championship.

      BTW, does anybody else find it hypocritical that Louisville fans make fun of us for comments related to basketball during football season, then they do the same thing in basketball season?

      Sorry I’m late for cheerleader practice! GO TEAM! RAH RAH!! 😀

      Something tells me that I would make a very unattractive cheerleader.

      UK Big Board, maybe they should have played The Black Keys’ “Gold On The Ceiling” instead. 😀

    I don’t care that Ben Simmons is coming to town, except that I hope to see us avenge our loss against them earlier this season. I’m sure he’s great, but he made the dumb decision to go to LSU, so his college career has had no impact on basketball.



    • J-Dub421

      I just can’t see us losing on senior night in Rupp either, especially since it’s like Ulis and Murray’s last game in Rupp as well.



    • J-Dub421
      10:46 am March 3, 2016 Permalink

      *likely

      Thinking about it being Tyler and Jamal’s last game in Rupp makes me genuinely sad.

      Me too, they have both been really fun to watch.

    Matt, what about when Shaq and Chris Jackson came to Lexington. The problem these days is whenever we have a marquee matchup against a team with a superstar it winds up being a neutral court game for TV.

    UK v UNC in 2011, AD and team weren’t really stars YET, but UNC players were household names.

    Since the show thread is rather dead today, what is your favorite Seinfeld episode?

      Gotta be Soup Nazi.

      11:13 am March 3, 2016 Permalink

      Ha ha I just got awaiting moderation for naming a Seinfeld episode.



    • J-Dub421
      11:17 am March 3, 2016 Permalink

      I don’t know the names of the episodes, but my favorite is the one with “Jimmy.”

      “Jimmy likes Elaine.”

      Jimmy’s ready! Jimmy’s got some new moves! OH! JIMMY’S DOWN!!”

      “JIMMY’S GONNA GET YOU KRAMER!!!”

      It’s the same episode with the special shoes that are supposed to increase your vertical, where Mel Torme think that Kramer is special needs at the end.



    • J-Dub421
      11:22 am March 3, 2016 Permalink

      Also a good choice Realme.



    • Booby Petrino
      11:22 am March 3, 2016 Permalink

      So many to list, but The Puffy Shirt and The Shower Head are two of my faves



    • CPACAT

      “Master of My Domain”



    • Booby Petrino
      11:23 am March 3, 2016 Permalink

      the Shower Head was where the soft water caused Kramers hair to be flat. I couldn’t look at him without laughing.



    • Booby Petrino
      11:26 am March 3, 2016 Permalink

      J Dub I think that episode is named The Jimmy



    • Realme

      I could just watch a montage of Kramer bursting into Jerry’s apartment and be happy.



    • J-Dub421

      The shrinkage episode is also great.



    • ukjaybrat
      11:29 am March 3, 2016 Permalink

      I’ve got all of them, spent a summer watching from start to finish and only got halfway through when my wife-to-be moved in and I didn’t have time to just binge-watch TV everyday. 🙁



    • RealCatsFan
      11:38 am March 3, 2016 Permalink

      Shrinkage, followed by “The Contest” that CPAcat referred to. Although it’s hard to go wrong with any Seinfeld episode.

      The one with “Eric the Clown” (I think it was called “The Fire”) was pretty epic too. “You’re hung up on some clown from the ’60s, man!” 😀

    • J-Dub421

      There are lots of options. That is a good episode. 🙂

    I wonder if you know who is like Betelgeuse. or Candyman. when we stop talking about him he goes away, and the second we mention him, there he is.



    • Realme
      11:29 am March 3, 2016 Permalink

      Uh oh, you probably just summoned him back. 🙂



    • ukjaybrat
      11:38 am March 3, 2016 Permalink

      meh, whatever… I just ignore him most of the time. Once someone has been outed as a troll, just ignoring them pisses them off more than anything.

      I think the show thread can be more lively/interesting when someone shows up to pick a fight, but I (usually) don’t get involved because there’s no reasoning with them, and because I really don’t want to stoop to insulting someone, but I kind of did yesterday.



    • ukjaybrat
      11:49 am March 3, 2016 Permalink

      i don’t typically insult them, pointing out obvious character flaw like being hypocritical and inconsistent is about where i draw the line. well i guess i did call him little brother… that’s a pretty stern slap to the face 😀

    I don’t know if this has been mentioned in the show yet, but this horse video of jamal and tyler is pretty hilarious:
