    Are we all going to be watching a side door soon?

      So is it “Jay” like Matt says, or “Jye” like Tom said this morning? I’m assuming Matt has said it wrong forever.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:07 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Pretty sure it’s “Jay.” But every time I see it in writing, I think “Jye” in my mind.

      It’s so funny and ironic that he’s finally going to be a Wildcat after everything with his recruiting and then his transfer.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:12 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      It will be funny and ironic if/when it actually happens. You never know with this guy.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:17 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Yeah, maybe he goes to UF…or to OKC to be with Billy again.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:18 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      But the fact that his recruitment and Patterson’s is kind of how this site rose, it’s crazy.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:19 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Or maybe he is coming to UK to be with Billy again. 🙂



    • runningunnin.454
      10:27 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Doubt if he wants to be with Billy again; Billy wouldn’t let him play PG.

    They’re going to preview Shannon’s walk again? What else can they say? “50 miles is a lot to walk, especially in the heat…or in the rain…depending on which it is…”.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:26 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      I like that Shannon gave Matt a little smack talk. 🙂

    Matt didn’t know grass-fed beef was actually a thing until like yesterday… smh.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:18 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Wonder if he knows what free range chicken is…



    • ClutchCargo
      10:21 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      I doubt the vast majority of people could explain what “free range” actually means in practice. There is so much marketing involved with food, it’s ridiculous.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:25 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      I never understood the logic of buying organic bananas. You still peel them, after all.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:39 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      And from what I understand, the FDA still to this day does not define what “natural” is, so that word means nothing.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:44 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Even “fresh” is kind of convoluted. A fresh turkey can still be called that after having been chilled to 26 degrees F.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:50 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      I didn’t know that. You learn something new every day.

      When I preached in the country, one of the families that would feed me had wild turkey one Sunday (the bird, not the drink…haha). They had deep fried it and it was awesome! Even most of the ladies of the congregation were hunters.

    Grass fed beef is better for you. Same with butter from grass fed cows. My wife is doing keto and she read up on all that. I don’t know all the reasons, but one I think is that if cows are fed corn, you’re basically trying to fatten them up fast on sugar, so the beef and milk are more loaded with carbs. I think there’s more but that’s all I remember. Grass is their natural diet.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:20 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      It’s all the antibiotics and hormones that they inject into livestock that worries me more. We grilled some chicken breasts that were the size of turkey breasts the other day. Genetic engineering? Better living through chemistry?



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:36 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Yeah, that’s a concern too. One thing I do know, that KerryGold butter from Ireland that’s from grass fed cows? It tastes GREAT!

    So both NBA #1 seeds went down in Game 1 yesterday. Bucks lost to the Magic, Lakers lost to the Blazers. That’s not happened since the 2003 season.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:29 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Starting to wonder if The Brow will ever get his title.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:33 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Lakers should have won that game. AD needs to stop shooting so many 3’s and do what he does best. Portland was more than happy to let him stand wide open and keep shooting from outside.



    • Laker Cat 18
      10:45 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      I’m all for the underdog, but I want a Cat to win the title more.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:13 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Same.

    Patrick Patterson stuck with it through some tough times – coaching changes, having to deal with BCG, his injury. By all accounts he is a great person, and his parents are nice people too. I hope he’s doing well.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:26 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      I was impressed from day 1 by how hard he competed on the court. Glad he ended up coming here and finally got to be a part of a really good team, after paying his dues for a couple of years. I wouldn’t wish BCG on any player, though.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:37 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      I think I’ve read where he’s always involved in the community wherever he plays too. Good Cat.



  7. RealCatsFan
    10:27 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

    Matt sounds like he has never worked out a single day in his life. He’s a true metrosexual. 🙂



    • ClutchCargo
      10:29 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Matt probably hasn’t heard about personal trainers yet.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:30 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Yet the gyms are full of metrosexuals, so it’s truly baffling.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:31 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Do they actually sweat?



    • ClutchCargo
      10:34 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      They perspire. And then check Instagram for several minutes while sitting on a piece of equipment while others wait. 🙂



    • RealCatsFan
      10:37 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Now I remember why I work out at home. 😉



    • ClutchCargo

      It’s hilarious when people worry about bulking up. It takes a lot of effort to actually build muscle, not something that just happens by accident.



    • Realme
      11:02 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Matt had a personal trainer once. He needed it to be a woman.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:13 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      To be fair, I should probably cut Matt some slack. I read in his book that his biological dad wasn’t really in the picture when he grew up, so that might explain it to a degree.

    10:30 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

    I heard that Jay Williams probably would have come to UK if Saul Smith wasn’t on the team. Anyone else heard that?



    • runningunnin.454
      10:57 am August 19, 2020 Permalink

      Yeah, but why go to a school were the coach’s son plays your position? Never was a fan of Smith and Sutton playing their sons, considering neither were Div I level.

    I love that song by the Foo Fighters! How many rock and roll songs have actually been written about cows?

    Matt was referring to the Alabama song “Forty Hour Week”. Great song, great group.

    Trump must be a vampire like Kount K – that’s why the presidency didn’t age him. 😀

    The image of Cal coming out on the sidelines in a robe like The Dude cracks me up.

    cg, I went back and looked at the video you linked of The Boss doing the BeeGees. Pretty cool. There was also a video of him doing AC/DC’s Highway To Hell.

      He rocked up the BGs!

    Is that Hooker as in “John Lee” that STD is playing? 😀

      Yep, “Boom Boom”.

      That’s in my top ten for sure. He was so great. Illiterate, but wrote and remembered a bazillion songs.

      I think I mentioned this before, but when he was on a Pepsi commercial playing and singing I thought “Hey, that old man is pretty good!” I had no idea at the time he was a living legend. lol
