      Not sure if you are Frank Drebin or John Merrick, but good mornin’!

      I meant to change “animal” to robot. lol

      That’s from the movie “The Elephant Man” for those who don’t know. I never actually saw it but that was such a famous line.

      I had a buddy who used to do a hilarious impression of that line from the movie. Maybe not completely PC according to today’s norms, but when he would throw it out there in the appropriate context it was pretty funny.

      I guess I’m officially human too, although I never feel that way on a Monday. But I’m starting to figure out the little captcha trick questions.

      It was hilariously spoofed in one of the Naked Gun movies, so I wasn’t sure.

      10:18 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      I never actually saw all of that movie either. However, the idea that Reggie Jackson played himself and was being manipulated to kill the queen was hilarious. And Frank Drebin going all Michael Jackson like a lot of real umps, as well as college bball refs calling a block/charge, was great. “Hey, it’s Enrico Palazzo!”

    So it would seem the PAC 12 football players are not all that concerned about covid 19; but rather, money and legal recourse. Are they going to be as careful in other extracurricular activities,

      You used the most accurate word yesterday RG: unattainable. They ain’t giving anybody 50% of the revenue (not to mention how do you expect the PAC-12 to solve racism in all of society??? They’re one small entity in the grand scheme of things.).

      Chris, at least I didn’t post the Doors’ R version of “Gloria”…but now you’re curious, right?



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:35 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      Is it the same song by Van Morrison? I prefer the “Gloria” by U2. They rocked, especially with those early albums!



    • runningunnin.454
      10:39 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      BTW, “Gloria” was written by Van Morrison and recorded first by his Northern Irish group, “Them”. Later covered by “The Shadows of Knight” and, of course, the Doors…remember the expression about curiosity and the cat, ha ha.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:50 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      Here’s the U2 Gloria (live from Red Rocks, which was awesome sauce!!!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yohnJNx8M3g



    • runningunnin.454

      That’s not the same song, Chris.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:57 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      I know, but it’s way better. Van Morrison’s is okay, but in every other song of his I’ve heard, his voice is HORRIBLE IMO. Sorry if that bursts anyone’s bubble since he’s such an icon, but I can’t stand his singing, just like Bob Dylan (except “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door”…he sounds good on that one…it must have been after he quit smoking…he said that helped his voice, although you couldn’t tell it on “We Are the World”…haha).

    Can we all pretend like this football season will go off without a hitch for this football week on KSR? I just wanna pretend at least.

      No kidding.

    • ClutchCargo

      That would be amazing, but I’m afraid to pretend that just yet. I got the email from UK Athletics last week that said details for season ticket holders would be coming soon. Fingers crossed.

    Yesterday we helped daughter #1 get her stuff moved into her dorm room at WKU. She has a pretty decent view of the football stadium from her window. Too bad there won’t be anything to see this year. 🙁

      I’m glad she gets to go!



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      RCF, tell her she needs to wear that Hilltopper costume, so I can say “Hey, I ‘know’ her dad!”



    • ClutchCargo
      10:21 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      Maybe I have been living under a rock for a few days, but what do you mean by “there won’t be anything to see the year?”



    • ClutchCargo
      10:25 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      Disregard. My non-caffeinated brain failed to see that you were just not playing along with pretending good things are to come for football season.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:25 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      Clutch, for one thing, I doubt if there will be many (if any) fans in the stadium, and I have concerns as to whether we will be able to pull it off at all. I am just hoping and praying that this damned virus will calm down in a major way before fall gets here.

      Found out another cousin was diagnosed with it last week. She is doing ok right now – just fatigue and some upper respiratory symptoms, but she is probably moderate to high risk.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:07 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      I do recall seeing an interview with WKU’s AD a week or so ago, and he was pretty bullish that there would be fall sports this year. Hope so!



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:58 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      As is Troy’s AD, and they’re in the same conference.

      I think if this was going to happen sometime, this roster is pretty well put together to do this. Definitely going to take some lumps, though.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:26 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      I’m just very sad that we won’t get to thump the red chickens again this year.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:34 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      Yeah, I wasn’t excited when I heard we might have to add Bama and LSU. Oh well, you play the card that’s dealt ya. Anthony White said yesterday we can beat them. If we play them I hope the coaches and players are as confident. Granted, LSU doesn’t have Jeaux Burreaux this year.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:56 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      We don’t have to beat Bama for me to be satisfied; I just want us to make Saban pace the sidelines, ranting and raving, and throwing his headset on the ground.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:59 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      Haha. Yeah, that would be worth the price of admission (not really since tix are so pricey) if we made him go off on an assistant the way he went off on Lane Kiffin. The funny thing is when Kiffin is interviewed about it and he’s pretty jovial about the whole thing. He made Dan Lebatard laugh.

      Speaking of that, I assume Ole Miss should still play Bama this year, right? That should be fun if it happens.

      One of our old houseboat party veterans (let’s just call him “Woody”) used to dress up every year as a cow for Halloween. He enjoyed it when girls would try to “milk” him. 😉



    • davef5054

      True.



  8. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

    I understand the caller asking why we get no respect where Florida is concerned, to a point. The thing is, we’ve snatched defeat from the jaws of victory 2 of the last 3 years. Granted, I still say we win last year if Sawyer doesn’t hurt his hand, and probably if Terry doesn’t get hurt, but they did and it happens. Sawyer not falling on his fumble also cost us, but that wasn’t the only mistake made of course (and letting an unproven QB carve up what was usually a stout defense…ugh…but I think Brad White was still getting his legs under him as the DC).



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:56 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      And 90% of the national guys who pick them ahead of us probably have no idea we had 2 QBs injured last year. Even the ones who knew Bowden was thrown into that role have probably already forgotten. Matt’s right. Sometimes when you hear these national guys being interviewed and UK comes up, you can detect a lack of knowledge about personnel.

    I got busy about the time Andy called in. Gotta give him credit for not taking the Hayley bait this time. Maybe he is evolving. 🙂

    • ClutchCargo
      11:20 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      It was seemingly just a normal, non-creepy discussion and then Shannon brought up Hayley to him out of the blue. It didn’t go beyond that this time, best I could tell. Like I said, I got busy about then and was kind of half listening.



    • RealCatsFan

      I guess I missed most of the backstory on this exchange.

    I know a lot of people don’t particularly like Matt, but you have to admit that the show really drags when he is on the mic. Even Freddie can’t liven this one up.



    • runningunnin.454

      Yep, and this was supposed to be about football, and they went off on golf and the Reds.

      Matt is like a very important ingredient that doesn’t taste very good on its own, but the recipe isn’t nearly as good without it.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:13 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      Matt also does a good job of keeping the discussion on track and moving along.



    • Realme
      11:19 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      Normally I’d concur, but honestly the only thing that kept me listening throughout the pandemic has been making it more interesting by talking to you guys. I think it’s been boring, even with Matt in other words, but of course I don’t think there was much they could do about no sports and all news being depressing.

    Normally I love looking at the schedule and predicting the W-L record, but I just can’t get into that this year. Too many unknowns to feel anything like confidence right now. Maybe the lack of an actual schedule has something to do with that. 🙂

    Have heard several radio host say that John Mellencamp is not a real pleasant dude to interview. And don’t call him “John Cougar”! 😀



    • runningunnin.454
      11:55 am August 3, 2020 Permalink

      Then why did he put Cougar on his album covers?



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      12:00 pm August 3, 2020 Permalink

      He has said a manager or something kind of forced that on him saying his real name just wasn’t marketable. He said he always felt it was a phony thing to do so he changed it back.



    • RealCatsFan
      12:00 pm August 3, 2020 Permalink

      I think some record company bigwig thought he would be more marketable as “John Cougar” rather than “John Mellencamp”. As someone who gets to continually spell his last name, I can kind of relate.



    • RealCatsFan
      12:01 pm August 3, 2020 Permalink

      That has happened a lot in both radio and the movie industry. Some of us are just saddled with “uncool” names. 😉

      Try having a last name that is simple and short, but also is a common first name. People always have to make things more complicated than they should be.
