    Happy Oaks!

    I am still impressed with Chris from Morehead with the Counties. Pretty impressive. I think one of those girls could do that as well.

    Matt, Duke wanted Gabriel and Murray too.

  3. Hey, I love the big hats at the Derby, most are quite beautiful, but does that thing in the pic above qualify as a hat?

      Looks a lot like one of the weeds I have growing in my back yard.

      I don’t get why women want to attach weird things to the front of their heads. I think it’s called a fascinator, or some other pretentious name.

    • Hah! So it’s a giant hair bow. 🙂

      It’s a fascinator, and they’re more like a headband with a veil and some flowers and stuff on it.

    Yes, Cal has aged considerably while at UK. Meanwhile Kzcherklkdfkkhskhksski has not aged a day in 30 years. I think he is a friggin’ vampire.

  5. Did Nick Roush have a scoop? I missed that part of the conversation.

    Tell Cal to ask Tubby how it can be to have your son playing for you at UK. This ain’t UMASS or Memphis. Like MJ, I’m not against it (in fact I’m all for it since it will keep Cal here for at least 4 years), but he should be careful.

    Cal saying Brad will play is not the same thing as saying he’ll get special treatment. I think he’s showing confidence that his son will deserve to play (some).

    • True. It’s just that some fans will assume special treatment regardless, unless he’s the victory cigar and he only plays at mop up time like Sam Malone, Brian Long, etc. I think Matt & some others have said he has more game than those guys though.

      I don’t know personally, but I’ve heard Brad is a very good three point shooter.

    We need to discuss the Berenstein Bears parallel universe on KSR today

    He had “the Pitino house fumigated….c’mon, I still say WE OWE HIM!
    Now you don’t like babies and dogs?
    Having a bad day, Matt?

      Corpse Face got all the appreciation and adoration he deserved, when he deserved it. Now he is very disrespectful towards the Ky fan base, and the feeling is mutual, as far as I’m concerned. Also, is this your first day? Matt has always disliked children and dogs.

    • I’ve always said Pitino made his own bed from the start. His problem is he has such a hard time showing the least bit of humility, and when he does it usually seems to be feigned humility. I’ve posted this many times on KSR and on the old LHL message boards back in the day:

      When Pitino took the UL job, if he had simply said “I realize some UK fans won’t like this, and I can understand why, but I have to do what’s best for my family”, many UK fans (not all to be sure) would have been more okay with it even if they still didn’t like it. Even if he didn’t really believe it, he could have sucked it up and said it. Instead he made that “a lot of small minded people” comment and simply brought more grief upon himself.

    Billy Clyde Gillispie Sighting at Belle’s downtown last night. You might want to lock up your bourbon and hide your daughters. He’s in for the Derby. I asked him if he was interviewing for the women’s coaching job and he laughed and said he didn’t think he was eligible.

      You should have asked him if he still keeps his drivers license in his golf bag.
