Also, a big purple dinosaur has a particularly great birthday wish that will be played at some point during the show, so you don’t want to miss that.

Join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080.

    Apparently there is a new secret item on the Arby’s menu called the Meat Mountain. It has 8 different kinds of meat. I think Drew should try it out and write about it on KSR.

    Anyone know where the “fearless leader” phrase came from? My earliest memory of it is Boris and Natasha from the Rocky & Bullwinkle show but I’m sure it goes deeper than that.

    So let me get this straight. You billies shrank the size of CWS. You say the excitement surrounding the program has never been greater. Yet, the season opener at home is still NOT sold out? Funny.

    #WhyNot – Well, there’s one of many reasons why not.

      You keep believing that, Delk. It may be true for schools that have upwards of 100,000 seat stadiums, but the small 50,000 seat CWS?

    Hey Matt, I just wanted to let you know that I am listening live from Stuttgart, Germany on a business trip. I have to say, listening to your show every day this week is the only thing that keeps my mind sane from all the jet lag! Love the show.

    Most expensive model, Turbo S Executive brand New is ~$200,000. He probably spent $100K-$150K

    • JoeMoney333

      No. The most expensive Panamera online is only listed at $225,000 & That’s brand new, top model, full options. Unless you talked to Julius about the extra $25,000 in aftermarket that is way off base.

    Matt, talking about full house and the TGIF line of shows yesterday, it brought back a discussion I had with a friend a while back. I thought all those shows (full house, family matters, and step by step) had the same people/group singing their theme songs. We debated over this and wanted your opinion on it. Those show back in the day have different themes than ones today and ones I can probably sing and remember to this day.

    So what do you think? Have you ever noticed it’s the same people or group singing those songs? I think so!



    • DrSayre
      10:45 am August 28, 2014 Permalink

      I used to think that Full House and Family Matters had the same theme song, I’m still not convinced they are different!



    • Honkey Tonk
      3:17 pm August 28, 2014 Permalink

      I’ve always been a die hard Jesse Frederick fan- “Everywhere you look” (Full House), “Nothing’s gonna stop me now” (Perfect Strangers), “As Days Go By” (Family Matter).



    • Honkey Tonk
      3:18 pm August 28, 2014 Permalink

      There is speculation that Uncle Jesse’s character was loosely based on the real life writer (Jesse Frederick) of the show’s theme song…..Mind blown.

    My economics teacher, first year of college in an entry level class, said the biggest mistake his students could make was to buy a car they couldn’t afford. He was right then, he’s right today.

    The Porsche Panamera ranges from $78,000-115,000 depending on how many upgrades he added.



  24. TravisC
    10:40 am August 28, 2014 Permalink

    Porsche Panamera starts at $78,000.



  25. Smitty4UK
    10:41 am August 28, 2014 Permalink

    Escalade ESV $70,570-$86,050
    Porsche Panamera $78,100-$200,500.

    Let’s hope he didn’t get the fully loaded model Panamera, but it could have been much worse decision, like buying 2 neon yellow shirts.

    I think the Cats will have an upper hand in close games and maybe FINALLY start winning some of them this year due to the new conditioning program. Last year they would often fall apart in the 4th quarter due to fatigue.

    Last year the defense didn’t score, & the offense wasn’t clicking. This is going to change!!! The defense is coming, & will score often. The offense will move with Towles, & the backup QB. We should win the first four. Florida is going to look to Alabama. ZaDarius & Bud Dupree are not thinking that the breakout year is next year, its NOW!!! GO CATS!!!!!!!

    Happy Birthday Matt. Remember that John Short is legally blind. I doubt he was reading the KSR blog this morning so he had no clue today is your birthday. If he had known he would have told you great Americans should have great Birthdays.

    A mediocre 2013 Boise St. team beat UT-Martin 63-14, a week removed from getting blasted by Washington 38-6.

    If we don’t win by 40+, it’s not a good sign in my opinion.

    I think your nuts to say 2010 is “just better” than 2012. I don’t agree at all. While they both had their advantages, the main difference that puts 2012 over the top is their shooting ability. 2010 just couldn’t compare in that area and that’s why 2012 team wins a 7-game series.
