    Enjoyed the volleyball match last night, we were on cruise control. But I thought with the 2 seed we would have had at least one cupcake…how did we get an undefeated opponent? Now on to WKU; at least, that one is going to be on TV, espn2 I think.

      Go Cats.

      Being the volleyhead that I am, yesterday was about as non-productive at work as the first 2 days of the NCAA Basketball tournament (when the Cats are in it.) I watched Morehead St against Florida – UF just had too much size for MSU. Their front row goes 6’3, 6’6, 6’7! The announcers even made an Anthony Davis reference when talking about their 6’7 OH/setter. Apparently she was only about 5’9 as a freshman in HS.

      I then watched a replay of the Louisville match against San Diego. SDU has Gabby Goddard, who transferred after playing a couple of seasons for the Cats. UL looked like absolute hell the first set, losing by about 12. They eventually got it together and won the match 3-1. I know a lot of you guys hate UL as a general rule, but they have a lot of local and in-state kids playing for them, so it’s hard for me to root against them unless they are playing the Cats.

      WKU had a good start, then let Washington St get back into the game during the 3rd set, and that allowed them to grab all the momentum. It was not looking good for WKU at all going into the deciding 5th set. They looked stunned and lifeless. But they were able to get it together just in time to win the deciding set. Now they have to face the Cats on Sunday, and that pisses me off. They should have been in a different region. So the NCAA continues to screw the state of Kentucky even with volleyball. 🙁

      I have to say that it is fun to watch our volleyball team dominate the competition. Makes me long for the days when our basketball team did the same.

    Saw an article on the app yesterday harping on how our football staff is really honing in on the Mizzou game from last year. I for one love to hear this b/c I think that game is the difference maker for this season being good or great. We’re dead even with them, and the winner is 3rd (or higher) in the East IMO.

    It’s been a year, I think, since book a guest week. April 2020 When Herschel Walker, that rapper, and some others all came on KSR. Did we ever vote on who won? I thought the winner was supposed to receive $500 …

      Not paying up when there is a winner is a recurring theme. Unless someone else is holding the prize in escrow, I would never expect to receive it from Matt. I would be super worried if I was those guys with stock being held in Matt’s account.

      Early arrivals from England settled in Appalachia and brought old English dialect with them. Due to isolation of mountain living these dialects were retained.

      Hey, my mom’s from Casey County! Watch it! lol

      She grew up on a farm right outside Liberty/ Which high school did you go to Laker Cat?

      Speaking of dialects & accents, that kind of history is extremely intriguing to me. I saw a YouTube video about an island off North Carolina (pretty small and, I think, isolated) where everyone still has an English accent. So fascinating. Fishing is the primary industry, not surprisingly.

      I really became intrigued by this when I saw a special called “American Tongues” on PBS years ago. I looked for it on YT and didn’t find it, but there are numerous videos about accents and such, as you can imagine. I watched one about Appalachia.

      Yeah, it is kind of cool. Kind of like the French and Creole influences down in Louisiana. That was a very enjoyable experience, getting to live there for three semesters. I had a girl ask me to dance at a bar one night, and with her heavy Ca-jun accent I didn’t have a clue what she was saying to me as we danced. She could have been telling me that my fly was open and all I did was smile and nod.

    “Don’t put money into something you don’t understand” is a quote by Warren Buffett. I am fairly dubious about investing in Bitcoin and other stuff like that, although I know some people who are betting heavily on it. And the stories about the amount of energy consumed to “mine” this “cybermoney” is mind blowing.

      I’m kind of neutral on that because of Stoops now, but I see what you’re saying. He seems set on one guy that may or may not be a good fit when those times come. That’s my worry with Holtmann. He’s got a lot more to prove for me to buy into that.

      Brad Stevens

      Billy Donovan

      In that order.

      I find it interesting that they put Donovan back on the table.

    • Laker Cat 18
      11:47 am April 16, 2021 Permalink

      The thing with Billy D is that he has probably underachieved in the NBA by their standards. Being a “good coach” can get you fired after a year or two if you can’t compete at the highest level. If you’re not playing in late June, you’re probably on the hot seat.

      A few of them are so good that the inner cynic in me suspects that a parent had a hand in the piece. I sure hope that is not the case with any of them. But some kids are simply talented. I was a pretty good artist in grade school and HS – almost went into something creative as a career. Sadly, that talent has been for the most part squandered.

      Me too, art was my favorite class, and I used to really paint, but I stopped after high school and really suck at it now. My disabled brother on the other hand, taught himself to paint as an adult. He has to lie down on his back, hold the canvas in one hand, paint with the other, and can only go for 30 min at a time. The results are beautiful. I have 4 of his paintings up in my house.

      My freshman art teacher was batshit crazy (it was really entertaining, but he didn’t teach us anything). He was ranting one day, which we were all used to, and then he picked up a record player and just started slamming it on the floor until it was in pieces. That was his last year.

      We had an ex Eddyville prison guard as our physics teacher my senior year in HS. He was huge, bald, and intimidating, but once you got to know him, he was a teddy bear below his gruff exterior. He used to grab a cup of coffee right before our class in the afternoon, so I knew I had about 5 minutes to draw a quick caricature of him on the chalkboard before he walked in. It became a thing during the year, he would walk in, look at the board, chuckle a little, and say “hmpf, the decrepit artist has struck again” (he didn’t know who was doing it). I had him doing a variety of things, usually related to something he did or said the day before, sometimes tied to current events. I would sketch the picture out in my notebook during lunch. One day he skipped his coffee and nailed me in the act. In exchange for not giving me a week’s worth of detention, he made me promise to give him my notebook of drawings at the end of the year. 🙂

    As much as Matt wants to complain about the announcers at the volleyball match last night, but I am glad that they at least had announcers. ESPN originally chose to just broadcast the live streams with NO commentary. They also did not have locker rooms for the players, since they are playing at a convention center. Once again, this sport gets no respect.
