    I don’t know what the Browns did last night… but it could’ve started off a chain of events that leads to my favorite NFL team drafting Teddy Bridgewater. I’m not sure how to handle that… Matt when is Santa Kige coming back? I have a White House petition where a whole 2 people have signed it! http://wh.gov/l4CF7

    Matt you are missing a lot of details on Stanley Johnson.

    First, he himself clarified that Oubre to UK helps UK. He clarified on twitter.

    Second, he just said Jason Jordan took him out of context on Wisnlow. Just this hour on twitter.

    Matt, you over play this girlfriend factor. It might affect kids that are already in college and looking to transfer and have a girlfriend at that school. However it does not work for high school kids. The girl always follows the guy coming out of high school. The girlfriend is a no factor or high school kids. Get your facts straight.

    Matt is going back and forth on what to make of the Johnson tweet. Today its negative. The other day on this site it was positive: “Much has been talked about today concerning the tweet from Stanley Johnson about the Kelly Oubre to UK gossip at this point. While I initially wondered if Johnson’s words were negative (he suggested that Oubre to Kentucky could make things clearer for him…but how it made it clear wasn’t entirely certain), now I think it was positive.”

    Adjustable beds can be used with pretty much any kind of mattress, Tempurpedic, Select Comfort Sleep Number, or regular old inner spring. They aren’t only for old people but many people with various health issues can benefit from using them. There is a reason they have been used in hospitals forever.

Therefore you only get used to sounds that are directly next to you so your reactions will be slower because you won’t hear something till it is right upon you. You won’t hear something coming in the distance. And he said headphones not no music playing on the speakers since that is coming from a distance and not directly in your ear.

    Matt, the Tempur beds in the store will already be broken in, so be aware that the new one you get will take at least a month to properly break-in and get all comfy like the floor models. Also, if heat does bother you while you sleep, then ask the people that work at the store which models are designed to be cooler. Tempur-pedic beds are awesome….enjoy!

    Hi Matt!
    It is your UL BFF from last night, I just want to say that you were really nice to talk to last night and I even argued with my UL fans that I like your show. They are just true haters (-:
    My hubby last night said you don’t like any UL fans, but I was felling the love from ya, so I know we are like BFF’s! Anytime you want to go to a UL football game, holler, we will make room for ya.
    Thanks for being nice last night night when I wanted to comment on your past show, I tried to wait until after you ate(-: That was the most excitement ever at Pina Fiesta! LOL

    Matt, read the post on your own website. The issue is motivation not reaction times. ‘Guys, you have to learn how to create your own music’ and it started to click with them that YOU create your own level of excitement. You don’t want to be hooked on some type of stimulus.”

    Before you make your mattress decision Matt, check out the Tempurpedic but also the Select Comfort Sleep Number. On our way to a Florida vacation we stayed at a Crowne Plaza Hotel in Atlanta so we could visit with my husband’s uncle on the way down. The reason we chose the Crowne Plaza was they have Tempurpedic mattresses and wanted to try them out. I was completely miserable and couldn’t get comfortable at any point during the entire night, but I do have back problems. The mattress was very hard. We later purchased a Select Comfort Sleep Number Mattress and I can’t say enough great things about them. I never wake up in the morning anymore with my back already hurting. I sleep very well and very comfortably each night. Each side is adjustable so my husband has his side adjusted for his best comfort and I have my side adjusted for my best comfort. You can also change the firmness any time you want to. I would imagine it would be the perfect bed for a pregnant woman (if you ever meet miss right and decide to have a family).
