Yes, that’s Sheryl Crow.

What, did you think we forgot?

Happy, happy birthday to our fearless leader, Matthew Harper Jones. Matt turns the ripe old age of 35 today, which means he’s right on the edge of growing up. As someone who was working 9-5 at a corporate job this time last year, I can certainly say that in addition to bringing you University of Kentucky Sports in the most ridiculous manner possible, Matt has changed a few lives in the process. On top of that, he’s an awesome friend.

We’ve got some major birthday festivities planned for later on today (which will top any news and views dedication), so stay tuned. In the meantime, please wish Matt a happy birthday in the comments section.

    Dude, happy birthday. You are funny but you need to grow up and leave Pitino alone. He cries every time you talk about his past! Rock on brother. God bless.

    Happy birthday! Didn’t know you were born on the 15th anniversary of MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech. I’m guessing your momma had her own “I Have a Dream” speech when she was in the delivery room giving birth to you, as in “I have a dream to get this thing over with!!!”

    Matt, don’t shake her hand. She once said, “One of my favorites is in the area of forest conservation which we heavily rely on for oxygen. I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting.”
