    My FIL got attacked by 3 dogs out in the country when he stopped to ask for directions a couple years ago. Really messed up his arm. Glad Matt was safe inside his car.

      I have zero patience or empathy for people who do not have their animals under control. I understand that he was on their property, but if the dogs were that vicious a sign should have been posted.

      Probably my FIL should have known better than to approach someone’s house deep in Heroin County. But yes, raising vicious dogs to attack anyone who ends up near your home is not okay. I don’t like to think about how you’d have to treat animals to make them like that.

      Hopefully your FIL sued them for his medical bills. I cannot stand how people in rural areas just let their dogs roam. The dogs WILL NOT stay on your property. What happens when a pack of vicious dogs is roaming the countryside freely? What happens if a neighbor’s kid gets lost and ends up on your property?

      When I was a kid, there was a German Shepherd in my neighborhood, and he was chained to a wheel on a wagon.
      There was a guy that would pass the dog daily and taunt him mercilessly. One day the dog lunged and managed to roll the wagon and get to the guy…the man was killed.

      That’s what I said too, JDub, but he didn’t sue. I would have least called animal control, but I don’t know if even that happened.

      Whoa RG, I mean that idiot was asking for it, but that’s terrible. Dogs are so good, I hate people that aren’t worthy of them, but have them anyways.

      I will never understand people who get a dog, then leave it chained up outside all the time and never walk it, or play with it, etc. Why did they get a dog in the first place? They clearly don’t really want a dog. It makes no sense.

    • RealCatsFan
      11:35 am July 11, 2018 Permalink

      There are people who look at dogs (and other animals) as something akin to a major appliance, not a living, breathing being that can feel pain, fear, and anxiety. The dog is simply something else for them to use – as a theft or trespass deterrent, breeder to produce income, or worse yet, a pawn in a violent game to gamble money on the outcome of a fight.

    • One place we lived in Lexington was Riverpark Drive. I would walk to school (Tates Creek Jr.), and on Centre Pkwy there was a German Shepherd named Max that was always chained and always barked and lunged at me. One day I didn’t know his chain was longer and it scared me to death when he came closer. Then one day he’s loose and he tried to bite me but only got my belt loop. His owner was outside and called him back. I don’t think she even apologized to me.

    They’re really hyping up the food at KSBar. It must be really good. Kentucky b-ball never hypes the team up unless we’re really good. 40-0???

    I don’t think it’s a publicity stunt. I think they think they have a real lawsuit. What if they push through and Andre McGee has to finally talk? (I know it will get dismissed first.)

      They can’t really prove any verifiable damages. Also, ALL THE PLAYERS KNEW!!!! Luke Hancock and Peyton Siva may not have participated in the hooker parties, but they absolutely knew it was happening. They would breeze through and sign a few autographs for the strippers and then leave (according to Katina Powell). They knowingly cheated. They have no case at all.

    R.E. hitting wildlife in your car – by no means do I live out in the country, but it is semi-rural. I am constantly on high alert for deer, rabbits, squirrels, possums, foxes, turtles, heck, even frogs trying to cross the road in my neighborhood. The other day I was literally in front of my house and a fox ran in front of my car pursued by three blue jays. The deer are the worst – they are a true hazard. My daughter recently got her permit and I have instructed her that it is OK to hit the brakes, but by no means swerve for a deer or any other animal.

    • runningunnin.454

      Wonder what the blue jays would have done if they caught the fox?

      I live in the suburbs, and I see deer within a few miles of my house all the time. Deer get hit on extremely busy parts of Westport Road frequently.

    • runningunnin.454

      I have deer playing in the back yard, playing in the front yard; Often I get home from work around 8:00 p.m…and there will be 3 or 4 standing in my driveway. Blow the horn, and they’ll just stare at you…you just have to ease toward them, and eventually they will move.

      rg, they are almost like pets in our neighborhood. Some of my neighbors feed them, and say they have names for them and they even respond to their name being called. Funny thing – the other night I was walking our do Maggie, who is still a big pup, and there was a deer in the yard ahead. When Maggie saw the deer, she acted like it was another big dog and ran part way into the yard (on the extended leash) and went into a play stance with her tail wagging. She actually thought she had found a playmate! The deer wasn’t having any of it – I am pretty sure she had a fawn nearby, as she refused to leave and watched us warily – even followed us part way down the road. Does can get quite aggressive when they are defending their doe – I head about a dog getting kicked and killed by a mother doe when it came between her and her baby. So mama bears aren’t the only ones to look out for.

      I almost hit a cow once. It was dark out and the dumb thing was just walking in the middle of a country curvy road. Thank goodness for good brakes!

      I live in a subdivision, but kind of out in the country and lots of woods. About a year ago, I was walking up my street where my kids were playing at a neighbor’s house and I saw movement through some trees to my left. I stopped walking just before a really large doe ran full speed across the street just a few feet in front of me. I think we scared the crap out of each other right then!

      Deer hooves can be deadly.

      11:36 am July 11, 2018 Permalink

      I would love to see the look on my cats’ faces if a deer walked into our yard instead of their usual birds and bunnies. We have some on the outskirts sometimes, but they don’t venture out of the woody areas.

    • I have a friend who almost died when she hit a deer and the hooves came through the windshield. It cut her up really bad between the hooves flailing at her face/neck and the broken glass being a part of that. Needless to say she had some plastic surgery.

      If your cats are anything like mine RealMe, they would want to stalk the deer because deep down, they think they are lions.

    Cal talking about playing DDMO reminds me of Tubby talking about playing up-tempo every year. 😉

    • ClutchCargo
      11:30 am July 11, 2018 Permalink

      Same. But he might actually enough shooters on this team that the defense can’t just clog up the lane. It also occurs to me that Tubby’s ball line defense is the ideal defense to stop the DDMO, if you don’t have to worry about 3 point shooters

  6. Hey ST peeps. Busy today, but I have a question about Cincy chili. No, not the usual Skyline v. Goldstar, but in general, what does it taste like? There is a local joint in Montgomery that now has it every other Wednesday, and I want to go try it. It’s on the menu next week, not today (I just called).

    I know it’s supposed to be a Mediterranean type sauce, but one site said that the recipe became what we all know as “hot dog chili”. I cringed, because I thought, “Please don’t tell me this stuff I’ve wanted to try for oh so long tastes like…CANNED HORMEL OR ARMOR CHILI!!!” (insert horror film scream here).

    PLEEEEEEEEEASE someone tell me it doesn’t taste like that vile stuff.!

    • ClutchCargo
      11:42 am July 11, 2018 Permalink

      It’s not vile at all, but it’s an acquired taste. The meat is very finely ground, so a much different texture. Also, it has some cinnamon and baker’s chocolate. How does a Reds fan not know this?? 🙂

    • J-Dub421
      11:45 am July 11, 2018 Permalink

      ^^^ What Clutch said. I think it’s usually the cinnamon that throws people for a loop.

    • Realme
      11:47 am July 11, 2018 Permalink

      Never had it, smells gross. Lexington is getting our first Skyline and La Rosa’s soon. Probably will have to try it just so I’ll know.

      For some reason, I can’t just post this link without some additional comment:

    • Booby Petrino
      11:48 am July 11, 2018 Permalink

      yeah the cinnamon definitely threw me for a loop. I like cinnamon a lot, just not in my chili. Blech, that Cinci chili is awful.

    • ClutchCargo
      11:49 am July 11, 2018 Permalink

      Actually, Lexington had Skyline back in the mid-1980’s and a little beyond. I became horribly addicted to it when I was at UK and it was right across Rose St. from the UK Police station.

    • I know about the cinnamon NOW, but we moved away from Lexington when I was 13 (in 1975), and I had never heard of Cincy chili then. Don’t ask me how. I just hadn’t, even though an uncle has lived there forever and we used to visit him.

      BTW, I did get to go to a couple Reds games as a kid. Saw Bench, Rose, Perez, Gary Nolan, etc. I can’t remember if Joe Morgan was with them yet.

      I did NOT know about the baker’s chocolate, but I knew some people put that in chili. Bobby Flay once did that on “Throwdown” when he challenged a Texas chili champion. One Texas lady said, and I quote, “This is sissy chili!”. 🙂

    • Realme
      11:51 am July 11, 2018 Permalink

      Yeah, I should have said first Skyline in a while.

    • RealCatsFan
      12:01 pm July 11, 2018 Permalink

      I have no problem with it, but that might be because it resembles my mom’s recipe. I like most any kind of chili – I can make an excellent white chili that is an improvement on the recipe that Timothy’s used to use – grille the chicken before cutting it up and adding it, and I double the portions to make it extra chunky and delicious.

      cg, I used to worship the Reds when I was in grade school. The Big Red Machine from the mid 70’s was awesome! The neighborhood kids formed our own baseball teams and converted a vacant lot in the neighborhood being built next to ours into our own baseball diamond. Alas, all that ended when one of us got ahold of one and knocked a ball through a neighbor’s window.
