    I was thinking on my way to work today, that if things had gone Matt’s way, all of these Amy McGrath commercials would be Matt Jones commercials. Would have been way weird.

    My Saturday Football hangover is now complete. Here’s to hoping we can contain the Mike Leach offense at MSU!

      Don’t count on it.

      10:13 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      I haven’t seen anything in the first two weeks that indicate that we can. But these guys are pretty good defensive minds, so hopefully they figure it out.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:20 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      I hope so. We looked better after a couple games or so last year. I don’t know if it’s because White got more comfortable, players adjusted to his style, or what. Granted, again, it wasn’t an all SEC schedule early on either.



    • Realme

      It’s not unusual for a Stoops team to start terrible and then figure it out.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:27 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      I still say we are probably just playing like we always do the first couple of games, but the competition has been stronger. That doesn’t explain the mental errors and other dumb stuff, though. So that’s still troubling.

    Oh Lord, it’s time for Matt Doesn’t Understand Grocery Stores.

      I’m a fan of those “mini carts.” Can’t wait to hear what weird thing he is mad about. lol



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:13 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      He’s right though. I remember when Winn-Dixie first came out with their card. I walk down an aisle to buy some Kraft BBQ sauce. What had been 99 cents was now like $1.50, but with the card, guess what???!!!



    • ClutchCargo
      10:14 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      Why the heck would somebody refuse to let somebody use their Kroger Plus card? Free points! Matt is right.



    • UKgrad80
      3:09 pm October 6, 2020 Permalink

      You get coupons for items you purchase you only get so many. Then you started getting coupons for what he bought and not what you usually buy. Matt just needs to grow up and get his own damn card!



    • Realme
      10:17 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      Employees would get in trouble. Other customers maybe don’t want to be harassed with offers for whatever weird stuff Matt buys? That’s all I can think of.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:17 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      I would do it just to help somebody. But the free points are an added bonus. Half the time, the cashier has one laying around that you can use in a pinch.



    • UKgrad80
      3:10 pm October 6, 2020 Permalink

      Free points for gas that they charge more that Thorntonโ€™s not such a great deal hardly ever use mine. Itโ€™s cheaper going to other places.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:18 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      EXACTLY! There’s no telling what MJ is buying (haha), and the store tracks it.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:35 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      Clutch, I usually grab the little baskets that they have up front, then halfway through, I realize that I need heavy items like milk, beer and beer, and I end up having to go up front to grab a cart. And when I walk to the door with my groceries in hand to grab a cart, the security guard always looks at me suspiciously. ๐Ÿ˜‰



  4. runningunnin.454

    DON’T THEY KNOW WHO HE IS? LOL.



    • Realme
      10:15 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      He should really just stick with Clicklist. And he’s totally lying about owning a card but not having it with him, because they would have just told him to put in his phone number.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:19 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      I thought of that, too. But he is such a helpless person, his first move was probably to ask a stranger for help instead of explaining to the cashier that he just didn’t have his card.



    • Realme
      10:21 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      He said he told them he forgot his card and they said they weren’t allowed to do that (and they’re not).



    • ClutchCargo
      10:24 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      Ah, I missed that part. And it has been awhile since I have seen the convenient card being used by the cashier, so I guess that explains that.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:25 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      So, yeah, I’m not buying his story either now. He started off by talking about how much trouble it is to even sign up for the card, after all.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:29 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      Nailed it, Realme. He basically just admitted that he never ever filled out the application to get the card.



    • ClutchCargo

  5. Laker Cat 18

    Does Matt not know you can use your phone number associated with your Kroger card?



  6. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
    10:17 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

    Preemptive strike here: whatever Matt’s beef is with UT fans, he’s done a LOT to fan those flames, especially with all his “This isn’t your grandfather’s Tennessee” tweets at Vol fans. Unfortunately, as one said to him last season after they beat us, “No, but this IS your grandfather’s UK.” We played like it the last 2 weeks. Ouch.



    • Realme
      10:18 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      He loves to rile them up. And they are dumb enough to give him the reaction he’s looking for.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:23 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      Yep, Chris; even Bear Bryant’s team that whipped OU…guess who their only loss was?

      But unfortunately, RG, those few years with Bear were very much the exception, not the rule. My earliest recollection of UK football is the John Ray years. Ugh. I remember they were never on TV in those days they were so bad, and of course no cable.

    Well, prayers for Willie and Dolly; here comes the curse.

    Do you guys ever think about how if you saw Matt in real life, you could mess with him and become a story on the show? I do.



    • Laker Cat 18
      10:30 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      I’m waiting on the guy who sees Matt at the store buying booze and protection to rat him out publicly with photos.

      It may have to become my goal in life. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I want to be in front of him in McDonald’s drive-through. ๐Ÿ˜€ That’s my favorite one.



    • Realme
      10:35 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      His apartment in Lexington was near the McDonald’s on my way to work. I was totally hoping to get a chance to cut him off in the drive thru line one day.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:03 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      Realme, that would be too funny if you came in here with a story like that. If one could post HTML (photos, etc.) here, a photo of his reaction would be priceless.



    • Realme
      11:13 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      I don’t go there anymore, and I don’t know if he still has an apartment there, but one can still dream!



  9. Realme
    10:31 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

    I’ll admit it, I love the digital coupons that Matt has never heard of.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:36 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      My mom was the coupon clipper supreme – she had a huge bag devoted to them, and she had them organized so she knew exactly where to go to retrieve one. I could never be that organized.



    • Realme
      10:39 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      That’s why the digital ones are great. You load them on there and they just apply themselves when the time comes.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:15 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      Realme, what app do you use? Kroger’s? We don’t have Kroger here so that wouldn’t help me. We have Publix but they’re expensive. We usually go there only for 2 for 1 sales and for a few things Walmart doesn’t have. It’s definitely a much nicer store than Walmart.

      Fun fact: Publix trains their employees that, when a customer asks “Where are the Wickles Pickles?”, the employee doesn’t point and say “Aisle ___”, they take them directly to the product. I’ve had them do that and it is great customer service.



    • Realme
      11:25 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      Kroger, you just load coupons onto the plus card and it applies it if you buy the item. Used to be lots of free stuff, but 2020 seems to have ruined that too.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:55 am October 6, 2020 Permalink

      Yeah, there are no freebies at Harbor Freight right now either.

    For the love of God, stop whining. Maybe they didn’t want Depends on their card.

    We played Menifee County in baseball back in the mid 80’s and the thing I remember they had a girl second baseman – the only female I remember playing against.
    They had a guy on their basketball team that averaged around 30-35 a game but he took about 50 shots a game.

    Matt is complaining but it his fault for being to damn lazy to get a store card. He is so out of touch knows nothing about digital coupons. The more I listen to the show the more I realize how stupid he is about basic life.
