      Visiting My Old Kentucky Home is a nice excursion. My parents took me there when I was a kid, and I played the old piano…which was evidently frowned upon. I told them, hey this thing is really out of tune.

      I thought when the FBI was getting involved that things would start moving along with that investigation, but it has been at least 2 months and nothing, zip, nada. That boyfriend of hers must have some major dirt on somebody really high up, is all I can say. If this ever gets solved, there are going to be a couple of movies made about it.

    So last night I double-checked the UK game time on the CBS Sports app, and it was gone. It scared me because I thought that meant the game was postponed or something due to Covid. However, I went to KSR and saw nothing about that, and it was listed on the ESPN app. Still not on the CBS app this morning. Weird. I know it was on there before because I had already checked it a couple days ago. I like it because of the layout and such.



    • Laker Cat 18
      10:18 am October 23, 2020 Permalink

      I only use the ESPN app, but sometimes it doesn’t pull up the scores very quickly through Verizon…have to go in and out of it a few times to get it to show anything. I may try CBS if it’s reliable.

      It’s my go to since I like the layout. However, Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg must not want us to know about UK sports. Heehee.

    Anybody watch the debate? It was actually kind of like a real debate! The lady who moderated it was awesome – even trump complimented her after it was over.

    So I had one tequila shot apiece for Trump saying “beautiful” and Biden saying “malarkey”. 😉

      10:52 am October 23, 2020 Permalink

      Be dangerous to take a shot every time they smirked or made a funny face. I like that Matt thought it would be bad for his man to be able to talk uninterrupted for two minutes…more likely to have a brain fart, put his foot in his mouth, more apt to say something stupid…but, that’s his man, ha ha. Actually, I though they both did well; just some glaring failures to elaborate how they plan to achieve their goals. Biden is going to stop Covid cold? OK, how?



    • runningunnin.454
      10:55 am October 23, 2020 Permalink

      Giants and Eagles? Really? At least it was close, I guess.



    • ClutchCargo

      Giants and Eagles just to show how little I care about watching a “debate.” I would rather watch monkeys throw their poop at each other. The tv show is actually a much better option and is a good show.



    • Realme
      10:58 am October 23, 2020 Permalink

      The one clip I heard, RG, was Biden saying he will have a plan to stop Covid. Okay, man, go ahead and make that plan now, isn’t the debate a perfect time to share that plan? What have you been doing all year while hoping to be President soon?



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:01 am October 23, 2020 Permalink

      I saw the clip where the Giants QB ran out of gas 25 or 30 yards out. At least he wasn’t throwing up peace signs. And I’m glad Jamin Davis didn’t run out of gas until he was at the 5 or 10 and managed to rumble & stumble in for the score.



    • Realme
      11:08 am October 23, 2020 Permalink

      You know how Jamin turned that into a nice flip into the endzone? I saw an elderly man do that on the sidewalk once. He tripped, Oh No!, went smoothly into a somersault and popped back up.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:14 am October 23, 2020 Permalink

      This may just be the long-time UK football fan in me, but I was 100% sure Jamin was going to get flagged for doing that flip into the end zone.

      I missed it for some football obligations last night…but I plan on listening to it today after the show is over. I’m genuinely still torn. I don’t understand folks who think there is no one out there who should be torn. There are things about Trump I don’t like, obviously. But there are things about Trump I think he’s good at and would be better than Biden at.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:15 am October 23, 2020 Permalink

      BTW, Realme, you know how you can tell if you’re old? If you fall like that and people run up to see if you’re okay, you’re old. If they point and laugh, you’re not old.



    • Realme
      11:21 am October 23, 2020 Permalink

      We should all learn that trick. I was too far away to help, and was sure he was about to break his face.

      Clutch, what does it mean if they laugh and try to help?



    • Realme
      11:23 am October 23, 2020 Permalink

      Speaking of old men on sidewalks. I’m on my lunchtime walk yesterday, about to go past a particularly far gone looking homeless dude, when he drops his pants and loosey whiteys to take a pee right out in plain sight. I think I have ptsd.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:34 am October 23, 2020 Permalink

      If they laugh and try to help, I think it means you are young and possibly hurt.

      I was pretty sure I had found a dead homeless person once in Louisville. Just lying face down in an alley. I went over and kicked the bottom of his feet gently to see if he would react. Turns out he was just super intoxicated.

      11:50 am October 23, 2020 Permalink

      Clutch, I thought the same thing about the flip. It would have been so OLD UK football if he had gotten flagged and UT got a big run back on the kickoff.



    • RealCatsFan

      Clutch, maybe he was playing the Presidential Debate Drinking Game.

    Fire and excitement only get you so far; then, it comes down to fundamentals and execution. Missouri is giving up 38 points/game, and UT whipped them big time.

    The radio ads for the Libertarian guy, Brad Baronn are pretty hilarious, IMO. I love that he puts in the plug that his wife works at the Corvette plant (‘Murica!!), and the screaming eagle sound effect at the end is both perfect and over the top. (Someone needs to tell him that bald eagles do not scream like that. In fact, the sound they make is kind of disappointing, really. 🙂 )

      And I actually agree with several of his stances on the issues that he has on his site. Not all of them, but some of them. I just got a kick out of his ad spot.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:11 am October 23, 2020 Permalink

      Realme, he is a Libertarian, so he is probably more likely to court right-leaning voters who want an alternative to the turtle rather than left-leaning voters. Was not aware that the McGrath campaign was funding his campaign. Interesting.

    • RealCatsFan
      11:16 am October 23, 2020 Permalink

      McGrath started out early on trying to court some of the Trump voters. Her early ads were saying that Mitch was blocking a lot of Trump’s policies from being implemented. Doubt if it worked.

      I like the McGrath one where they’re like “he didn’t even fix Obamacare”. Um aren’t you supposed to be defending it? And there’s a new one I saw where McGrath took a page out of Trumps’ playbook and pretended that she loves the Bible.

      I would love to ride the scenic trains out west I’ve seen on TV. There’s one in Colorado that would be unreal, Realme. Haha. It’s in the Rockies and I hope to see them one day.

    I’m looking forward to the US Senate debate on Monday on KET. To my knowledge, McConnell still hasn’t accepted the invitation. Only McGrath and Barron have accepted and will participate as of now. I will tell you this. If McConnell doesn’t debate, I will NOT vote for him. You have to have balls to do that job…refusing to debate is a no-ball move. Got to have the nuggets to do that job.

      Cg, it’s astonishing to me how few people are even asking about Biden/Harris’ policy. It should be well-known that they intend to raise taxes on everyone, and that’s an indictment on the Trump campaign for failing to make everyone aware of this.

      At the very end of the debate, trump got Biden to admit he wanted the end of the USA oil industry. That could cost Biden , big time
