Happy July 1!

Can’t believe it’s here, yet here it is. July one. The first of July. Canada Day to our upstairs neighbors. National Postal Worker Day here in America. Shout out to all of the mailmen and women out there. I think Ryan Lemond tried to fire you on the radio about a month ago, but the rest of us appreciate all you do in helping us stay connected.

I really can’t believe it’s July.

Happy Bobby Bonilla Day!

July 1 means another $1.19 million landed in Bobby Bonilla’s bank account thanks to his former employer, the New York Mets. You see, Bonilla, once the highest-paid player in Major League Baseball, was owed $5.9 million on the final year of his contract when the Mets released him in 2000. However, Bonilla worked out a deal that has the Mets paying him $1.19 million every year until 2035, when he is 72 years old, instead. Best deal of all time. If he lives that long, Bonilla will make $29.8 million from the Mets without stepping on a baseball field. Good for you, Bobby.

“Love Lines with Lemond” returns tonight.

Facebook has been too busy losing advertisers to monitor what’s going down on the KSR Facebook page every Wednesday night. Ryan and Amanda Lemond host “Love Lines with Lemond” every Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET to share their personal experiences as a married couple, which is usually Ryan being in trouble for something. They also answers questions from the viewers on the live stream, and in some cases, like last week, interview high school football stars who happen to be in their kitchen. Tune in live tonight at 9 p.m.

“Listicuffs” Season 2 ended last night with Matt Jones vs. Tom Hart in a supersized game.

KSR’s popular game show ended its second season last night with Tom Hart promising to dominate Matt Jones in the final match. If you missed it last night, watch the entire show here:

Kentucky picked up a football commitment. That’s cool.

The Cats landed a nice commitment to the 2021 class in Christian Lewis, a wide receiver out of Alabama. Lewis chose Kentucky over Notre Dame, as well as offers from Louisville, Oregon, Arkansas, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Nebraska, among others. (You lifelong Kentucky football fans, go back and read that sentence again.)

The 6-foot-3 Lewis caught 75 passes for 1,398 yards and 20 touchdowns as a junior at Pleasant Grove High School, just outside of Birmingham.

He makes 12 for UK’s current Class of 2021 haul.

A lot of you have asked how you can see the Eddie Sutton documentary.

The documentary is called “Eddie” and it can be streamed online here via WatchESPN. That means you can watch on your computer, or even your phone, tablet or TV if you have the WatchESPN app.

If you’d like to watch it on good ol’ regular television, ESPN has not set a re-air date (as far as I know). The documentary was so good I am certain it will run again and we’ll let you know when we know.

It’s now time to play that game where I ask for book recommendations.

The quarantine book club is fresh out of inventory in the Franklin household. I’ve gotten some good recommendations in the past by asking here, so let’s try that again. I enjoy a good non-fiction (sports, Kentucky, mafia, politics, whatever) or someone fictionally getting murdered. Anything really though. Lil help?

The KSR radio show is taking you to Garrard County and five listeners will have a shot at $500.

Tune in at 10 a.m.

    “The Jump” by Ian O’Conner about Sebastian Telfair. If that’s a no, I hear the Goosebumps series is quite thrilling.
