Ryan Lemond stabbed a basketball signed by Rick Pitino with a frog gig

Because that’s what we do here at KSR.

The ball was donated by Gibson, who said he doesn’t want Pitino’s “Best Wishes” anymore.

    Still can’t believe that UK allowed that wildcat ‘tongue.’

    Yeah because that was the mature thing to do there. How about using your so called status and auctioning it off for charity. You could have easily made some good money for a charity. But that thought would never have come across your mind. It is much easier to be selfish than to do a bit of work and do some good.

      Please shut up. Go yell at kids who are out past 10 or something you curmudgeon.

      It’s Gibson’s ball and this is what he wanted.

      Why are you sitting here commenting on a website when you can be out doing charity work? But that thought would never have come across your mind. It is much easier to be selfish than to do a bit of work and do some good.

      The Truth Is you could be doing charity work of your own instead of reading and commenting on KSR. Hypocrite

    Destroy a ball autographed by a hall of fame coach who happened to win a championship while coaching your favorite team? Idiotic.

    Really? Look, I have 2 signed UK balls in my collection. Like it or not, Pitino is a part of our PAST! I am grateful for what he did for our program when we were at our lowest. Now, he is with our biggest rival and I want to beat his a** every time we play them. I do not root for him at any time, or care for his mistakes in his personal life, but he is a big part of our history. He has my respect in that regards.

    Question for Ryan:

    Should the speed limit for all interstate/highways/etc be raised to one standard speed, and if so, what speed and why?

    Matt really your drawings for tickets sucks really not rigged Louisville game again on the last day again, what are the odds STOP it’s so obvious let the participants drawn out or someone in the crowd not you or anybody affiliated with the program and show people that all the names are in the hat that would be nice

      Do you even listen to the show? The original tickets were given away earlier, stop 3 I beliive, guy on the corner gave another pair.

    I think it should be raised to 75 MPH personally.

    Matt you specifically said Monday that you were going to ask caipari about his flirtations with the Nba and you failed miserably to do so. Anybody with any journalism integrity can see that yours has been compromised. You asked softball questions that resemble a political fundraiser questions. Im sure I sspeak on behalf of all intelligent bbners that you conducted a pathetic interview



    • catdaddyd

      You don’t speak for me. Cal was catching a plane back from Vegas and wanted to announce the winner. There’s a place and time.

    I LOVE how you all destroyed that ball! Pitino is a Card. I’ve destroyed all of the UK memorabilia with Pitino as well.

    That was a good ball until Pitino signed it. You did exactly what needed to be done to the ball.

    LOUISVILLE SUCKS! Pitino can’t even beat Calipari at UK. LOL

    Pitino, Petrino, and Jurich aren’t exactly winning any ethical points with God. They all have failed at living a good christian life

    That ball should’ve been sunk to the bottom of a lake

    What was wrong with that ball? That was good looking ball but you had to go popping it and 15 sec later it was flat. smh

    Why can’t Pitino beat Calipari?

    Did you know that Pitino has coached 7 fivestar players at UL and only two of them where drafted.

    This kinda seems petty, like when you break up with your girlfriend and break all the stuff she gave you because “You’re over her”. Weather you like it or not Pitino was a major part of UK history, he brought us back from the lowest point in program history and won us a championship. This really makes us as a fan base look bad.

    It makes me happy to see that basketball destroyed. Big Blue Nation has no room for anything Pitino

    My second favorite team of all-time was the ’96 national champion Wildcats and if I remember correctly they were coached by a guy named Rick Pitino. I also remember a guy named Rick Pitino dragging a shamed and embarrassed UK program out of the basement and back to the promise land. I’m curious to see how quickly everyone jumps off the John Calipari band wagon if/when he decides to go to Cleveland. Fickle we are and fickle we will be. Why aren’t we stabbing a UCONN basketball? That’s the team that seems to have our number.

      IF Cal leaves, we will always love him unless one of two things happen…

      1. He comes back to coach at another college program that we hate (Louisville or Puke)

      2. Somewhere in the future we are sanctioned or put on probation (with FF’s and Ships vacated) b/c of something he did.

      I don’t see either of the above happening, folks.

    I hope that’s the last piece of UK memorabilia signed by me. How can I sport this awesome “L” tattoo with stuff like this floating around?

    #L1C…I can’t even do it guys, I just can’t

    Thats pretty ignorant to stab a ball given to you by the former UK coach many years ago.
