    I’ve been a huge volleyball fan since the U.S. ’80s world domination; yesterday’s domination of Florida was just as sweeet; thanks UK ladies for a thoroughly enjoyable 2 hours.

    • Remember when Wilt Chamberlain tried v’ball for a while after b’ball?

      Yeah, I think he played for a pro team in Seattle. But of all his sports achievements, the 20,000 is the most impressive…I guess.

      Now that is a middle blocker that I would not want to have to hit against.

      While we are on the subject – big shoutout to our women’s volleyball team. Took #1 Florida to the woodshed on their own court. Will be ranked top-3 in the nation next week if they take care of business this week. Craig Skinner is quietly building a nationally prominent volleyball juggernaut in Lexington.

      Go Cats! I want all UK teams to win all the time. Let’s continue to climb in the Directors Cup rankings. All Cats Everything.

    • RG, for spiritual reasons 🙂 I prefer to think of it as his 100 point game. Plus, do the math. It just isn’t possible.

      That said, kudos to the UK v’ball team!!! Did you notice he kind of copied Neal Brown with his locker room comments afterward?

  2. Random comment about the Florida game: I saw on the “Bum Chillips” Twitter feed that was linked by Kindsey Bernhard yesterday where a UK fan said:

    “Our uncover 2 defense is revolutionary”. Hilarious! And sad at the same time. I literally LOL’d when I read it.

    Good for Matt for getting that interview. Should be riveting and nationally significant.

  4. Oh man, Billy Joel is the BEST!

      Pretty much everything on “The Stranger” was really good. Not so much into his newer stuff.

    • Don’t tell my wife I told you all this story. 🙂

      If you couldn’t tell already I LOVELOVELOVE me some Billy Joel. He is just a master to me.

      Several years ago my wife called me at work and said, “I just won 2 backstage passes for the Billy Joel concert from (whichever radio station), but then I remembered you’re teaching tonight, so I told them we couldn’t use them after all.” I said “WHAT? I could have worked something out! Call them back!” She said it was too late, and I just cringed. I said “Why didn’t you accept them THEN call me? They could have given them away again if necessary.” She said she didn’t know I could have worked it out.

      Anyway, only 1 time did I ever say anything about it after that (was telling a friend what happened in her presence). She got mad because she felt I was trying to make her feel guilty, and she already felt bad enough. I have NEVER EVER said anything about it again, but man, every time he comes on the radio I think about that a bit. I’m not mad at my wife, and I don’t want her to feel bad, but man…it was BILLY JOEL!!!

    • Of course it would have been my luck he wouldn’t have paid me the time of day. 🙂

      Chris, reminds me, we were in New Orleans one year…we took a paddle boat cruise down the river. I love those things…my Grandfather took me for a cruise on the Belle of L’ville when I was young.
      Anyway, on the trip to N.O., in a couple of days, Johnny Rivers was going to be performing on one of the cruises; but, my wife wanted to go home…haven’t got over that yet.

      Sitting here wondering what important life experience I accidentally deprived my husband of, lol.

    • lol @ Realme. RG, I hear ya!

    • Quick question RG: was/is Johnny Rivers really that iconic? Or are you pulling my leg?

    • runningunnin.454
      12:59 pm October 16, 2017 Permalink

      Not pulling your leg; really liked Johnny Rivers…he was pretty big in the ’60’s….remember Secret Agent Man? Anyway, I liked that he covered a lot of ’50’s classics, especially the Chuck Berry songs.

    How fitting after talking about having Karen Sypher on you run a commercial about Ed having ED and PE issues. Wonder if Ed lasted longer than 15 seconds.

    This weekend my husband & I were talking about the media day comments from Cal that he wished were more reassuring. And I realized that after seeing UNC go unpunished, I could care less if we got in trouble. I don’t think we will. But I just don’t respect that organization, and think their authority is a joke. It the Cards refuse to take their banner down, I will cheer them on.

    • runningunnin.454

      The NCAA has a terminal case of ED.

    • RealCatsFan
      10:32 am October 16, 2017 Permalink

      Trouble is, the FBI is in no way like the NCAA. All order would be restored in the world if UNC ended up getting busted – hard – by the FBI after they are all gloating over getting away with murder at the hands of the NCAA. It would be a lot like OJ Simpson getting nailed for armed robbery and put away after he got away with murder and was gloating and living the high life. Karma, you have some work to do int he state of North Carolina!

    • RealCatsFan
      10:34 am October 16, 2017 Permalink

      I think Memphis should hang their banner back up and sue the NCAA to get their money back and wins reinstated.

      How do we get a viral public shaming of the “TAR BUMS” started? I can’t believe that this subject won’t be discussed during every game they play this year!

    Did Matt just say squirt to the ceiling or is my hearing failing me?

    I thought madness was good, and for once the SEC Network let us see pretty much everything, and just talked over the music without making us look at their faces too much. Really expect to love this team.

      I completely forgot that it was on. Sorry I missed it. All I saw was the last part of the scrimmage.

      I was a bit surprised by how much of BBM they actually showed, as I thought it was going to be boring, because of all the talk from them.

    • runningunnin.454

      UK basketball is on SEC network for, I think, 6 Fridays in a row; and ‘Bama fans are saying…”what? it’s football season”.

      I enjoyed it when one of the hosts basically told the others to be quiet because he wanted to hear Cal…

      Farnham knows, probably form experience, how much fan flack he would have gotten for talking over Cal.

      There are a lot of announcers who really love to hear themselves talk.

    I think Petrino has lost 6 out of last 10…with a Heisman QB.

      Would they dare let him go ?

    • If they actually get a new AD, it’s very possible. Having a new prez adds to that possibility IMO. Often a new AD wants to bring in their guy, even without the school being Scandal U.

      I was with several U of L fans over the weekend (my husband and some of his friends). I very quietly gloated to myself in secret as their team lost.

    Ooo! I do want Kelvin Johnson. He’s a good shooter and you can’t have too many of those.
