Easter Bunny’s Sunday News and Views

Easter bunny

If there is one thing I am certain of, people dressing up in costumes like this are definitely weird on the awesome or weird scale. But hey. At least you get that awesome Easter Basket with all the candy you can want for putting up with the creepiness of the Bunny.  Wait….what? We are too old for Easter baskets? Well…..that stinks.

On to today’s news and views.

Fan gets a tattoo

What will you do to keep the mojo going for the Cats? Because this guy sacrificed a perfectly good calf for the cause. I salute your dedication, sir.

Willie Tat

 

 

NBA Cats

Marquis Teague and the Nets beat Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes (Toronto)  in a very strange game. The shot clock messed up in the third quarter and it had to be counted down manually. At the end of the 1st quarter, Memphis is slightly behind OKC, but there is plenty of time to make it up.

Sunday has a schedule full of cats. Here is the schedule:

SUNDAY, APRIL 20

1:00 p.m., TNT: (8) Dallas Mavericks vs. (1) San Antonio Spurs

3:30 p.m., ABC: (2) Miami Heat vs. (7) Charlotte Bobcats (Michael Kidd-Gilchrist)

7 p.m., TNT, CSNC: (5) Washington Wizards (John Wall) vs. (4) Chicago Bulls (Nazr Mohammed)

9:30 p.m., TNT: (5) Portland Trail Blazers vs. (4) Houston Rockets (Terrence Jones)

 

 

Spring Game Update

University of Kentucky wants to make sure there is no unneeded confusion this weekend for the spring game, so they set up a website for fans to use as an answer to any questions they might have about changes made at the stadium. Go to http://www.ukathletics.com/fbgameday/ for more information.

 

 

 

Louisville fans are still sad

Louisville’s new deal with adidas apparently isn’t good enough for them. There has been negativity coming from the fan base since they only have the third biggest deal when it comes to apparel. Their argument of why they should make more than Notre Dame and Michigan is that they have Bobby Petrino and they sell the 25th most in apparel in college sports.

 

 

Cats still indecisive

And it is slowly driving me crazy.

 

 

Adam Silver REALLY wants to increase the age limit

We keep hearing about it, but maybe that’s because Silver keeps talking about it. The new NBA commissioner is now saying that changing the league’s age limit is now a top priority. ESPN did a poll in which every state in the nation was in agreement that the age limit should be raised. WE will have to wait until the summer to see though.

 

 

Coach Cal visited with man injured in Rupp Arena

Coach Cal took time out of his busy book tour to stop by and see Dick Gregory, the UK fan who hurt his back and was paralyzed while keeping his wife from falling down the stairs at Rupp Arena. It is nice to see that Mr. Gregory hasn’t been forgotten over time and that Cal still appreciates him.

Reading through comments on this story on twitter one fan brought up the point that without the Rupp renovations, Rupp arena cannot create a safer environment for the visitors who come to events. Although injuries do not happen often in Rupp to fans, one injured fan like Mr. Gregory is one too many.

    “I am not going to make a post on the subject. But travel in recruiting circles and you won’t find anyone who thinks that program is clean. You are free to have any feeling about Calipari u wish but I am not a fan of his tactics on building a program.”

    “You just knew it was gonna happen deep down. Karma is a weird thing and it strikes at weird times and you just couldnt imagine that Memphis would really be allowed to win a national title. With a team full of players that had run-ins with the authorities, after the fight earlier this season at UAB, after their constant problems with free throw shooting and Coach Calipari’s mocking of it as an issue and the coach’s less than stellar reputation with the NCAA, you just HAD to think that it would catch up with them.”

    “As for Memphis, you just knew this would happen. All year, they have laughed in the face of those who said you didnt need to hit free throws to win, and it was those free throws that lost the game. I make jokes about this Memphis team and I do have some problems with how Calipari runs his program.”

      Still hurting over the sweep this year? Little, little brother, time to put your big boy pants on, move out of mommy’s basement, and get a job. Obviously you have ZERO ambition. Seriously Bob, April 2008?
      Guess you never made a mistake and owned up to it.
      My opinion of you, based on your post, is not that great. Maybe you will do something that will prove me wrong. Just sayin’.
      Doubt it.

      well Bob Matt had his opinion at the time and has changed it. if we read only the the stuf in the media and don’t follow facts this sometimes happens(weapons of mass destruction Iraq comes to mind as a misrepresentation by our government and the media especially Fox news thoughtfully made it a fact) but when looking for fact we can come up with nothing on Cal but could come up with a link http://www.nytimes.com/1989/05/24/sports/pitino-unfazed-by-past-infractions.html of which is not an innuendo but a fact.

      Yeah and every Louisville fan I know, and I live in Louisville, hated Pitino when he was our coach. They all said he was a cheater. … Well in 15 seconds time he later proved that one to be true ;D

      Because apparently, anything he says they believe like its the gospel. Hahaha.

      Its just one mans (at the time uninformed, biased, and admittedly jealous) opinion.

    if Michigan is 5th in apparel sold, and UL is 25th, where do we rank? does anyone know where UK is on that list?

      From my limited research The collegiate Licensing Company Annual Rankings 2012-2013
      1. Texas
      2. Alabama
      3. Notre Dame
      4. Michigan
      5. Kentucky
      25. Louisville

      This year UL made the jump from 32 to 25 because of Champ too.
      Uk was 5th even after a 2-10 football season and NIT

    Let’s be clear. The only obstacle in the way of increasing the minimum age of NBA players is the union – the NBA Players’s Association…

    does anyone know where UK ranks on the “apparel sold” list? just wondering….

    Who would have the best teams for next year, if the three year limit began three years ago?
    UK would be:
    1. Adw Harrison
    2. Aa Harrison
    3. James Young
    4. Julius Randle
    5. Nerlens Noel

    I hope everyone has a nice Easter Holiday. Please get your mind off UK, UL and U Whoever for just one day. Gather your family around and see who is hurting and which you can help and remember what the holiday celebrates.

    Thanks John Calipari, for spending a few moments with Mr. Gregory. I don’t know him, I don’t know Mr. Calipari but I hope to always appreciate good deeds done by good people.

    Happy Easter to all the KSR readers.

    Where do you put a trophy like that? And based on what they wore this year, I dont think I’d be boasting about apparel sales.

    You call that tattoo “dedication”. If a UL fan got a tattoo of Russ Smith, would you call it dedication? Something tells me you would call it weird and creepy and it would become a joke…

    It is cute how Louisville is CONSTANTLY mentioned on uk news boards. You can go on ANY Louisville news site and never see mention of your lesser program. Just shows how very very obsessed y’all over your much older and more successful big brother. It’s alright little brother.. You guys did okay for a while in the fifties.. Now let the big boys do their business. Louisville is a national powerhouse. Between the fact that we have the Most profitable college sports franchise in the nation according to Forbes, we have the most loyal fanbase according to sports analytics research, AND we just landed the 3rd largest sports apparel deal in the entire country… Not to mention, we play in what rolling stone magazine has deemed one of the 10 best arenas in the country… WHICH is in a major US city with tons of acclaim and fame..
    Not to mention UofL was founded 67 years before uk… And consistently has better academics and does better in every sport across the board (some programs can focus on more than one thing).
    So how you doing there little brother? Is it a hard time to wear blue? Don’t worry… Football season is coming up.. Youll probably have your third 2-10 season in a row. And considering petrino is 7-1 against uk… Y’all aren’t going to enjoy these next few years.

      Awwwww, look at you!

      No family to love you on Easter morning? Go over to the “Cardinal Authority”. It’s full of bitter rationalizers, just like you. Hope you find that love and acceptance you’ve been looking for, Doug.

      Happy Easter!
