    My uncle ran into Coach Cal at the airport in PA this morning. Pretty cool.

    Ryan how long do you have to take these shots? I really hope there is an RN at every location. I have to get my allergy shots laying down. I am weak.

    Coco pebbles are awesome.

    I know we give the NCAA committee a hard time seeding the tourney, but the guy who did this must have been asleep during the pre-tourney work up.
    Cinnamon Toast Crunch a 4 out west? They deserved the the 1 seed in the south. C’mon man!!!

      Absolutely correct.

      That west region is just loaded. Looks like a region UK would draw as the overall #1 seed.

    Cinnamon Toast Crunch vs Count Chocula is a tough first round matchup.

    This can’t be taken seriously without Cinnamon Life

      Agree! Cinnamon Life vs Cinnamon Toast Crunch would be the title game to end all title games. In fact, those 2 compete to see who is going to be my breakfast almost every day. Add some fresh blue berries in the Cinnamon Life and it is REALLY a tough choice.

    Does Cheerios include Honey Nut Cheerios? If not, I have to wonder how that did not make the list. I’m not saying it’s the best, but Honey Nut Cheerios are definitely better than regular Cheerios.

    Cinnamon Toast Crunch fans: Listen to me. Listen to me. Now. LISTEN TO ME. This is important. We’ve been with you with CTC. This is Corn Flakes home game. This is Corn Flake’s…..listen to me. Listen to me. It’s their home game. You are a part of it. But you show respect for Corn Flakes. I don’t want any nonsense. I don’t want any incidents. Don’t ruin this for Best Cereal Day.

    Great cereal begins and ends with Golden Crisp. I even eat them for dinner sometimes….drinking the milk at the end puts the cap on the sugar buzz.
    GO CATS !!

    Final Four:

    Golden Grahams
    Apple Jacks
    Raisin Bran
    Cinnamon Toast Crunch

    CTC drills Apple Jacks for the title.

    The west is so crazy it must have been seeded by that crazy leprechaun from the lucky charms! Come on, cinnamon toast crunch as a 4 seed? They’d be a 1 in any other region. CTC will win it though.

    No Reese’s puffs? Come on guys! And Boo Berry! Where’s Boo Berry!
    Btw, does anybody that grew up in the early 90s remember the cereal that Nerds made? It even came in two seperate sides like the candy

    The Wheaties Boxes came out in December of 2007 I think. It just wasn’t Kentucky … from the story:

    The new 18-ounce Wheaties package is now available regionally. Other college teams that have been featured on the Wheaties box include the University of Georgia Bulldogs, University of Michigan Wolverines, University of Nebraska Cornhuskers, Northwestern University Wildcats, University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Texas A&M, Texas Western University and the University of Texas Longhorns.

    Cap’n Crunch is SO OVERRATED!!



    • CATandMONKEY
      11:04 am June 19, 2015 Permalink

      Plain Captain Crunch, agreed. Crunchberry and the Crunchberry Beast…different story. The short-lived Vanilla Crunch, sporting a white whale on the box was rather underrated. All of the above will wreak havoc on the roof of your mouth, though.

    This could be a contender for one of the best comment sections in recent memory. Keep em comin’, folks. Keep em comin’.

    For the record, I have Honey Nut Cheerios with the W. But I’m also probably the only one with Cracklin Oat Bran in my final match up. Someone had to pick a few upsets along the way, right?

    The upcoming West region is going to divide the base on the order of North vs. South in the civil war…

    I assume John Wall’s wrestling move would be some variation of The Walls of Jericho.

    Captain Crunch should win

    Stanley “Boom” Williams wrestling move would be the Power Boom.

    This bracket is fitting for a 85 year old man that is highly upset with technology and the youth. I am 27 and I dont think I have had any of the #1 seeds since 3rd grade when my parents forced me to eat it.



    • Old Fart
      11:22 am June 19, 2015 Permalink

      For an 85 year old man? But the bracket doesn’t have any of the hot cereals preferred by seniors. No Quaker Oatmeal. No Cream of Wheat. This tourney is all youthful, cold cereals aimed at whippersnappers!

    I have a friend who goes camping a lot and always takes potted meat with him to eat. When you say potted meat it makes Vienna sausages sound much more disgusting.



  25. CATandMONKEY

    Potted meat makes Vienna sausage look- and taste, like Filet mignon.

    Tim Duncan is going through a divorce. Maybe the 20 million is just being hidden from his wife.

    I’m an apple cinnamon cherrios person myself, but I’m not a huge cereal fan. Most of the cereals on that list are way too sugary for me.

    Cap’n Crunch is the #1 cereal of choice for ISIS.

    Lucky Charms has paid off the officials and Cinnamon Toast Crunch has been cheated out of it. I’m done.

      lucky charms arent even that good. all kids everywhere just eat the charms and throw away the cereal. CTC has always been and will always be the greatest cereal

    I am beginning to feel more confident about getting Kash Daniel. He shut down his recruitment and said he wasn’t going to take any more visit, then dropped by Lexington and hung out with the UK coaches some more. He did the radio interview with Drake Jackson and Landon Young, and has been hanging out with them. He’s coming on KSR in Paintsville next week. I think he’s staying in state.

    Who else picks out the cereal and leaves the marshmallows for last while eating Lucky Charms besides me?

  39. By and large there is NO unsweetened cereal that should be beating sweetened cereals. There are a few exceptions, like the Smurfberry Crunch that was HORRIBLE!!!



    • J-Dub421
      12:02 pm June 19, 2015 Permalink

      That depends on the cereal for me. For instance Lucky Charms are gross and one of the worst things I have ever eaten.

  40. Yeah, I’m not big on Lucky Charms either.

    I like Grape Nuts because the crunch completely drowns out the Wife while I’m eating.
