KSR is live at a soggy, wet Oaks (Friday Show Thread)

IMG_4881

You’re looking at a picture of Churchill Downs from about an hour ago from our trusty photographer Dr. Michael Huang. If you’re not one of the many braving the conditions at the track today, tune in to KSR, which is live from the grandstand to bring you the action. They’ll also decide the winner of the KSR Movie Bracket, which is down to Pulp Fiction and Forrest Gump. I can’t believe those are the final two movies, but hey, that’s what we’ve got. Tune in and enjoy.

Join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080.

    Is it odd that I’ve never seen Pulp Fiction?

      Probably not. I don’t think I have seen any of the Godfather movies all the way through. Have seen parts of them, but not the whole thing. Same for Casablanca. I guess they are both on my “movie bucket list”, if I ever get around to having time to sit through a movie any time soon.

      I suppose you’ve both seen “Clueless”.
      Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

      I haven’t seen it either, and I couldn’t care less about it.

    • I haven’t seen half the movies. Not that I don’t like them at all, but I’m not the total movie buff that a lot of folks are. The theater is way too expensive these days for one thing. Most movies I see have to be on TV, and my fam doesn’t always want to watch what I do. 😉

      I can’t watch anything over an hour and a half unless it’s a competition. So basically, I can only watch kids movies, anything else is too long for me to sit still.

      I’m not a movie person either. Couldn’t tell you the last recent movie I’ve seen. There is such good tv now, that I’d rather binge watch something at home.

      Yes. You should be uncomfortable watching it for about 80% of the film…at least first viewing.

    When will they get wise and move the damned Derby to the end of May when the weather is more dependable?

      Yes it almost never rains later in May…

      Reliably sweltering? No thanks. I did the infield 3 times in the rain in the nineties(decade). Will take rain over 93F and 85% humidity. Unless there is water involved there is no reason to be outside between May and September between 7AM and 9 PM ☺

    • C&M, that goes quadruple when you live in central Bama.

      I must have thin blood – I would much rather be hot than cold. Got my space heater on right now because they run the AC here in the building like it’s the Polar Bear Club.

      … and yes, I am aware that it also rains in late May, but the weather is usually more stable that time of year. You generally don’t have to worry about freezing your ass off that time of year. I have always sworn that if it ever snows on Derby Day again (1989), I am moving south.

      Matt needs a late 1970’s Cadillac “SuperFly” with gold plated horns, gangster whitewalls, fur interior, and painted a color to match his suit. 🙂

    • That is awesome RCF! He could also have a chandelier on the hood like Isaac Hayes did in “Escape from New York”. Hey, that classic was not in the movie bracket!!!

      I was in Chicago once, and there was a Caddy like that parked on the street. It was pink, with the gold furry seats, and the balls hanging down. The driver was standing there wearing a pink suit and a fedora with a foot long gold feather, and then….another car backed into it. I thought I was watching Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor…hilarious.



    • RealCatsFan

      cg, reminds me of the movie “48 Hours”, when Nick Nolte comments on Eddie Murphy driving a Porsche. Nolte said something to the effect of “I thought you people always drove big cars”, to which Murphy replied “Well, some white asshole bought the last piece-of-shit sky blue Cadillac”. 😀

      Come to think of it, why wasn’t “48 Hours” in the mix of movies? Was it considered a comedy? Great movie, although parts of it might be considered non-PC today.



    • CATandMONKEY
      11:10 am May 5, 2017 Permalink

      We should try to judge any art or literature using the context under which it was created. Non-PC does not bother me if it was made during a time that was not PC.

      @gettlefinger…I tried to call in for over an hour on bracket day but could not get through. Escape from New York was one of the ones I was going to pitch against Blair Witch Project. Also had Unforgiven over Hurt Locker and Reservior Dogs or Dusk till Dawn over Kill Bill as better Tarantino films.

    I’m talking to the people who actually follow horse racing and know something about it (which sure as hell isn’t me) – are there any mudders running in the Oaks?

    Today is my wife’s birthday (and no, I won’t tell her age – gentlemen don’t tell). So she took the day off, but of course I couldn’t get off work. So now I have to run out at lunch in a mad scramble and get a card and some flowers and probably something else. That’s the way we roll these days.

      She’s a Cinco de Mayo kid. At the track, she always bets $5 on #5 in the 5th race. It has come in for her a surprising number of times. Today is a bonus since it is 5/5. I need to find a way to phone a bet in for her.

      It was a very underrated movie, IMO. Both Cruise and Hoffman (in particular) gave very good performances. Good story too, especially for anyone who has a family member on the Autism spectrum.

      The restaurant scene with the toothpicks were filmed in Ky.
      Rainman did win Oscar for Best Picture, and Hoffman won Best Actor.

      Yeah, went back and looked at the bracket, and it wasn’t even in the running. So how does a movie that won two Academy Awards, had two mega stars, and had parts of it filmed in Kentucky not make the KSR list? I guess since it didn’t have any gun battles or shit getting blown up, they guys have no interest in it.

      Speaking of Dustin Hoffman, if we ever go back and do a 1970’s movie bracket, “Little Big Man” better be in that field!

  9. Matt should show that guy some of the legendary UK bball and football clips and have him call them on the fly (in Spanish of course) like they used to do on “Dream Job” on ESPN.

    I don’t understand how you make a profit off of home delivery of beer without a delivery fee. I’m not a drinker, but I was looking at the details because I can totally picture my husband using this.

      +1 for home delivery.
      I can buy groceries from Kroger, Walmart or Aldi’s. I would rather pay a $10 cover charge to shop in Kroger than go to Walmart. Aldi’s isn’t even on the radar.

      If I’m going in a grocery, I go to Kroger. If I’m doing the online order and they bring it to my car, I do Walmart. Because the Walmart service is free. I’ll take that $5 saved and pick up food on the way home, I never cook on grocery day anyway 🙂

      Click list is free the first 3 times. After using up those, I only use it when they email me a coupon for free stuff that amounts to more than 5 bucks, so it cancels out. Haven’t tried the Walmart version.

      We have click list here but half my list is based on what looks good that day and what is actually available. Plus I often shop at 6AM and it doubles as therapy and mild exercise- especially when I go across the entire super-Kroger 5 times to pick up something I forgot.
