Cleveland will be the most dangerous place in America over the course of the next week. With the Republican Convention in town to name its party’s President and Vice President nominees, there will be mayhem along the streets outside Quicken Loans Arena as protestors, demonstrators, activists, Trump lunatics and the like, gather in one common area to voice their varying views and beliefs, all while carrying firearms. Not to mention, terrorists; they have eyes on the RNC, too. The FBI and Department of Homeland Security warned the city of violence and terror throughout The Land.
So, we are going.
Kentucky Sports Radio is getting in there, because we go where the action is. Are we crazy? Maybe, probably. But crazy makes for good radio and web content, and we were put on his planet to do two things: produce good radio and web content.
With that goal in mind, I hope you will join us over the next five days via radio and online as Matt Jones, Ryan Lemond and I report from the scene in Cleveland. I can already hear some of you shouting “STICK TA SPORTS” while reading this, but I can assure you it won’t get too political around here. We’re in it for the absurdity of the whole thing, not the politics. (Besides, Ryan and I don’t know anything about politics.) We’ll be the only sports show inside the arena — which is funny in itself because we have no idea why they credentialed us in the first place — and we will definitely be way out of our element the entire time. Hell, I didn’t know what a delegate is until I Googled it this morning; I can’t even wrap my mind around a super-delegate.
Our coverage will begin tomorrow morning with, hopefully, a radio show from inside the arena, although we tend to have complications whenever we stray too far from home base. Matt has already scouted the scene inside Quicken and he anticipates it to be a huge cluster-you-know-what come showtime. We’ll be there, though, ready to give you the Republican National Convention in the ridiculous manner possible.

Again, I hope you enjoy this crazy, stupid idea and understand that it’s in no way, shape or form political. We’ll be doing it again next week from the Democratic Convention to keep it balanced for those of you who can’t grasp that. We just get bored in the summer and the two conventions sounded like some fun to get into. Let’s hope it turns out that way and we escape unharmed with a lot of souvenirs and memories.
Wheels up to The Land!
Coming in hot!!!
