    I am ready for you all to go to Whitesburg and Speak your Peace.

    I think another example of cutting people off when they are trying to talk is that lady at McDonald’s you can’t go back too.

    Richard wasn’t directly involved in the operations of Dawahare’s stores…but he is most definitely part of the family that owned and operated said stores.

    I spoke my peace yesterday. Richard was on a panel of editorialists for the CJ several years ago, he couldn’t hold a candle to Mike Diguiro(sp) or a couple of the other guys who were on the same panel….the name of the opinion page escapse me as I haven’t read the CJ in years.
    I spent many, many dollars at his family’s stores, but sort of regret it now.

    As someone who never reads a newspaper, my only exposure to letters to the editor is silly ones like the Dawahare one. It makes me picture every letter to the editor to be from a self important nut complaining about a nonexistent problem.

    Matt, is it true that Petrino has already been in touch with the FSU QB?

      It wouldn’t surprise me if he had.

    That dude deserved to get eaten by an alligator. When you’re too stupid and/or arrogant to not heed a sign saying “danger, no swimming, alligators” then you deserve what you get.

    This wont go over well, but I would have to put serious thought in to a Louisville matchup against ISIS if they were to play

    I found myself rooting for Greece Saturday when they played the US U-19 that has Anuaku from 21 Feet of Suck!

    I wish I had thought to call in as Richard Dawahare.

      On second thought I am not sure I could have sounded that dumb. The fairness doctrine? Does that mean NBC should balance their coverage?

    Liberalism is a mental illness. Just listen to this guy. Hahaha

    Literally no one thinks that because UK games are on the same station as Limbaugh that UK endorses him or the other conservative commentators. This guy can’t really believe what he’s saying.

    If Limbaugh wasn’t bringing in a pile of $$$$$ for these stations he wouldn’t be on. Follow the money. Duh.

    Kudos to Matt for being a liberal and drilling a liberal. A little more respect.

    What do you charge someone with who puts shoes on a phone pole?

    • J-Dub421
      10:48 am July 8, 2015 Permalink

      Why waste perfectly good shoes? Also, wouldn’t this get expensive? Is it only one shoe from a pair, or both?

    Dawahare must be a U of L fan. He knew nothing about UK or KSR.

    Matt, great job with Richard Dawahare. He wants to think it is something grander than what it is, but reality is what you summarized…. He is a liberal who is unhappy that his political viewpoint isn’t on the airwaves as much.

    Maybe Dawhare is putting the shoes on the poles. Leftover inventory.

    The Dawahare who called in was just being a Dick.

    Matt seems too nice since vacation. We need a Cards fan call to set him off

    I get a kick out of all these conservatives saying stuff like CBS is liberal lol. These are the same people that would probably say Hillary Clinton is a liberal when she is at most a centrist, corporate shill.

    Matt’s been dropping hints about this for weeks. What other big is available that he could be alluding to?

      Which would be funny. 🙂

    Pitino does not play a pro-style offense or defense, which is why his players don’t usually do well in the NBA.
