Don’t disturb the wildlife

Don't disturb the wildlife

Don’t disturb the wildlife

Good morning, friends, and welcome to the Thursday edition of Kentucky Sports Radio, which is coming to you live from the Kentucky State Fair. Matt, Ryan, and Drew are all on hand to describe the sights, sounds, and smells from the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife’s booth, where you can shoot a Crosman air rifle, test your skills on the laser-shot hunting simulator, or spin the Prize Wheel. Add in some Cats talk and that’s a fun Thursday morning right there.

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

    Matt tweeted about an Alan Cutler Larry Vaught feud yesterday. Did I miss something? That would go down as a great media feud!

    Black rat snakes are about as docile and harmless as a snake can be. I used to catch them as a kid and keep them for “pets”. My daughter held one when she was 7 and thought it was “cute”. Too many ignorant people kill them just because they are scared of them. I always say that you must like having mice in your house / garage / barn, because they do a great job controlling vermin.

    Morning Matt – Are you sure that snake won’t harm our Ryan? Maybe it’s time to take it off Ryan’s neck! Pretty scary to me 🙁

    Good for Cal! How can he not be a great X&O coach. He has been more successful than any coach in the last 10 years! His record proves it. Look at the changes he has had to make throughout each season.

    Morning, it’s a beautiful day and John Short is the most sane and honest person on the planet. Mitch McConnell asks is that a rat snake in your pocket or are you just glad to vote for me, there’s a meat bandit alert in Eastern Ky and I miss the crow call I had in my youth. I would just go back to bed if I didn’t enjoy this radio show so much.

      But it shouldn’t. Are you saying it’s only possible to like someone that has identical political views. That could make a short list of possible friends for anyone.

    Guessing percentages on who will win based on teams you don’t even know how good they’ll be.

    I work for an insurance company. We have many associates whose role requires them to be politically neutral.

    John Calipari, as a representative of a public university, should not be allowed to use the power afforded to him as the basketball coach in a political manner.

    Cal should def talk about politics.

    He is clearly a democrat if you look at where he has made his political donations



  34. Bob Ed Thom
    11:15 am August 21, 2014 Permalink

    If a Coach endorses a politician he should expect to reap the heat that comes from the other side. I think he has EVERY RIGHT to do it, but it will be controversial to about half the fan base.
    It is stupid for fans to get mad at the coach for taking a picture with a famous politician or doing the intro to something with the Sitting, newly elected, or former President. Love or hate their policies, there have only been 44 of them, so it is pretty exclusive an opportunity.



  35. Delk for 3

    I don’t buy that this Louisville team will be all that good. I’m telling you, if Reggie Bonnafon is competing for playing time at QB, then they are in real trouble at that position.



  36. ukjonny9
    11:16 am August 21, 2014 Permalink

    I don’t see why anyone shouldn’t be able to talk politics. The only people who don’t like it are people who take that stuff too seriously. Those are also the same losers who are mad because their candidates rarely win anymore and they hate being reminded that they are on the wrong side of evolution.



    • realme
      11:35 am August 21, 2014 Permalink

      Not true. I’d rather not listen to people talk politics, no matter which side they represent. I’m pretty conservative, and I loathe the conservative talking heads. It’s like religion. No discussion/argument is going to change the mind of someone who disagrees with you, so why be annoying about it.



  37. NO WAY
    11:17 am August 21, 2014 Permalink

    Would it be ok with Matt and Ryan if I put McConnell stickers on my assigned police car?

    I watched Bonnafon at Trinity many times and the kid is not very good.



  39. Delk for 3
    11:18 am August 21, 2014 Permalink

    I also expect Louisville’s defense to be mediocre at best. You do know Grantham’s defense at Georgia last season gave up the most points in the history of the school.



  40. Delk for 3
    11:20 am August 21, 2014 Permalink

    I personally have no problem with Calipari advertising his political beliefs because I am a democrat myself. That stated, I’d get annoyed if I was a conservative. Oh well, that’s the way it goes though.



  41. Wigmon
    11:20 am August 21, 2014 Permalink

    I believe that Cal has a right, as an American, to say whatever he wants and I love him no matter what, but like John Short I’m a conservative and I really hate seeing him kissing up to Obama and Clinton.

    Many successful celebrities know that they have fans on both sides of the isle and they choose not to get into political issues… Example Michael Jordan. I think this is a good position for Cal to take.



    • Champ
      11:34 am August 21, 2014 Permalink

      I agree, but I do think it was ridiculous for conservative UK fans to bash Cal for simply taking a picture with Hillary. He’s not even expressing a belief, just taking a picture with someone, and people go nuts…. I lean left, but if I had a chance to take a picture with Rand Paul or McConnell or Romney or whoever, I certainly would do it.

    A political talk show to go along with KSR. He could talk sports for 90 minutes then liberal, Democrat politics for 90 minutes. The same guests could be used for both shows because the only people he talks to are liberals. It would be a perfect fit.
