Jerry Tipton took another swing at Ryan on Sunday


By now, you’re probably familiar with the ongoing feud between Jerry Tipton and our own Ryan Lemond. Tipton likes to poke fun at Ryan’s “HELLO RUPP ARENA” halftime entertainment during games and the two have traded barbs for about a year.

Unbeknownst to us, Tipton took another shot at Ryan in his Notebook column in Sunday’s Herald-Leader. In case you don’t read the paper either, here’s what Tipton wrote:

Ryan Lemond, the game-show host for UK’s halftime entertainment, went to the UCLA game. Kentucky lost.

That continued a pattern. Lemond, who doesn’t attend many away games, also went to North Carolina and Kansas the last time Kentucky played there. UK lost both times.

Now, for the good news: Lemond does not plan to travel to any more UK road games this season.

Okay, fine, whatever. Ryan is a jinx on the road. Not so bad, right?

Then again, Ryan Lemond does not necessarily have to be at Kentucky games to get his “work” done.

“Work”? “Work”?!? I resent your implications with those quotation marks, sir! I get that talking about sports on the radio and leading a halftime shooting contest isn’t quite working in the coal mines, but neither is writing about sports for a living. Let’s put those air quotes down and get real, Jerry.

Okay, Ryan, how are we retaliating?

    Hire Matt’s trash lady neighbor to tie garbage to Jerry’s car. It will also put a stop to Matt’s problem. Win win.

    If an old grumpy man writes something and the only people who read it are other old grumpy men, does it really matter?

    Haha, what a curmudgeon.
    (Also, are they really ‘air’ quotes if they are written?)

    I’m fairly certain 9 out of 10 KSR blog readers couldn’t care less about any Lemond themed article on the site…

    Maybe his hemorrhoids are acting up. Ryan needs to give him a grumpy old man gift basket for Christmas. Preparation H, Giant eyes-dilated grandpa sunglasses, depends, that hard candy only old people like, denture cleaner, a subscription to AARP magazine, maybe something from
