    Anybody watch the NBA playoffs? AD and JW were awesome.

    • No, but AD is just killing it.

      I saw the end of Pelicans game 4. So happy for them. Did I see Cal say they have 5 of our guys? I only know of 4.

      I think Lebron watched AD Saturday; and, decided he would have to get it in gear or he would lose his crown. He had 23 at the half last night; but ended with only 32…AD put up 47.

    Chris, about your downtown Lexington church question:
    The large one up a steep hill off Main St. is St Paul Cathedral on Short street.
    Christ Cathedral (I think you mentioned this one) is most gothic with extra towers, but no steep hill approach.
    Both they and 1st Presbyterian on Mill street are awesome old churches, dark colored, with pronounced steeples.
    That was fun making note of them all instead of walking past and not paying attention to what they actually were.

    • Cool! I’ll look them up on Google street view, and maybe Google Earth. Thanks!

    • Realme
      10:12 am April 23, 2018 Permalink

      No problem.

    • Looking at them on the maps, I may have actually kind of meshed Christ Church with one of the others in my mind. I thought I remembered it being even darker and more medieval looking than those. Maybe I related them to a movie or something. Either way, thanks again for the stroll down amnesia lane!

      How do you like living in Montgomery, cg?

    • There are a lot things I like about living here, mostly our church family & my alma mater, but crime has gotten pretty bad, and the public schools are terrible and they are circling the drain (there is a danger they could soon become unaccredited). Our daughter doesn’t attend one BTW. There are some good people working at them, but not enough apparently, at least not in the government bureaucracy.

      The summers are way too hot/humid and way too long. One of my Facebook friends posted she’s ready for summer THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS! Whenever I see that I respond with the “Shhh!” emoji and tell them our 6 month summer will be here soon enough. 🙂 I don’t complain about cold weather living here.

  3. So is Matt in Europe for 6 months again?

    God Matthew Mitchell is annoying.

  5. Kelly Clarkson talk. *sigh*

    Okay you guys, I’m about to start sharing recipes.

      I’m taking my recipe for my Hellfire Missile Fried Egg sandwich to the grave.

    • WLAP just cut out. Did anyone else lose the stream?

    • Realme
      10:21 am April 23, 2018 Permalink

      I like spicy, but Hellfire Missile is probably a bit much for me.

    • RG, is it like David Letterman’s mom’s fried baloney sandwich? He said he thought he remembered it being this grand complex thing, and when he asked her how she made it, she said “Fry the baloney and put it between 2 slices of bread”. Ha!

      “Fried baloney sandwich.” The name of it IS the recipe! LOL!

      Don’t know, Chris; never had David Letterman’s mom’s baloney sandwich. Doesn’t sound spicy enough.

    • Same here Realme. One more quick story:

      We went to Firehouse Subs with friends, and it was our first time there. If you haven’t been there, they have tons of hot sauces on the counter. I decided to be bolder than normal, so I eschewed my usual Tabasco for a drop of Dave’s Insanity. Big mistake. It’s one of those that has concentrated oil of capsaicin from habanero or ghost chilis, which I knew so I used the smallest drop possible. But, it’s thick like ketchup. I took a bite, and it set me on fire (duh!). But what’s worse is I felt this numbness that started at the tip of my tongue and then started working it’s way back toward my throat. It felt like my tongue was starting to swell, and I was literally in the process of turning and raising my hand to pat my wife on the shoulder and get her attention because I literally thought I was about to not be able to breath. But, when it got to the very back of my tongue it stopped. I guess it stops at the last taste bud.

      No more concentrated oil of capsaicin for me.

      Guess I’ll chime in with my “sauce that is too hot for human consumption” story. Was on one of our epic Lake Cumberland houseboat parties many years ago, and I was minding my own business chowing down on some chicken I had just grilled when a buddy said “here, try some of this” and blotted out a dollop of what looked like BBQ sauce on my plate. So I took a quick swipe through it with a forkfull of chicken, put it in my mouth, and immediately started running for the cooler to fish some ice out. That didn’t work – my mouth was still on fire, so I ran for the fridge and grabbed a gallon of milk and started chugging straight from the jug. No relief – I felt like I had a river of molten lava flowing across my tongue. I tried several different remedies – cold beer, soft drinks, even ice cream. Not much help. I finally ate a piece of bread sopped in milk, and managed to put most of the fire out. Lesson learned – never trust a friend putting anything on your plate – especially if it is “Scorned Woman Hot Sauce”. Don’t know what was in that stuff, but it sure lived up to its name.

      BTW – I got my revenge on my “friend” later that night. After he overdrank and retired to his cabin about 10 PM, me and a few of my buddies crept into his cabin, unzipped his sleeping bag, and painted his toenails a lovely hot pink color (I think it was called “Azalea”). We even videotaped the whole thing. Classic!

    • RCF, I’ve heard of that sauce, and I’m pretty sure I saw it at Firehouse. The male of the couple who was with us had set himself on fire with one called Mad Dog (not MD 20/20 since we don’t drink). He can take nuclear and it was too hot for him because it guzzled out too fast.

      I have also seen one at Firehouse called, ahem, “Butt Blaster”, but it didn’t use the word “butt”. What’s more it had a cartoon on the label to illustrate said effect. Exactly what I want to see when I’m about to eat.

      I mean, sounds pretty accurate.

    • RealCatsFan
      11:22 am April 23, 2018 Permalink

      Probably my favorite and most accurate hot sauce name was called “Screaming Sphincter Hot Sauce”. You get to pay the price twice for that one. 🙂

    • One more tip: don’t use any hot sauce that has skull & crossbones on the label.

      10:44 am April 23, 2018 Permalink

      Cool…I can see Matt doing the same thing.

      Just like cats have a habit of finding the lap of the house guest who doesn’t like cats, children always seem to find the airline seat right next to Matt. That goes double if the kid has a snotty nose and a loaded diaper. 😀

    • I didn’t even pay attention to your comment RG. Once again, the funniest guy in the Show Thread (with all due respect to the rest of you!). We might have seen a YouTube video of MJ melting down if he had been on that plane. lol
