Self-Awareness Reaches an All-Time Low at UofL

@HowieLindsey

@HowieLindsey

The University of Louisville is supporting Heisman Trophy finalist Lamar Jackson by distributing free red lights.  UofL wants the illuminated red lights to signify support for Jackson.

Apparently, they didn’t check Google before making this decision.  If you Google “red light” the No. 5 search result is Wikipedia’s entry for “red light district.”

It’s like they’re trying to write the jokes for us.

    This is when we have to tell our littlebrothers and littlesisters to just stop. Just. Stop. This makes our entire commonwealth look extremely stupid. Who is in charge of their sports communications? A child? Nobody can be that stupid. Can they? SMH and ROTFL.

    I can’t find anything about this when I try to search for it. Is this on the down low and not popped in the media yet?

      WDRB, a Fox affiliated TV station in Louisville is reporting it.
      I couldn’t believe it at first, either.

    U of L is already well known as a red-light district, they may as well advertize.

    Are they trying to make it easier for the hookers to find them? I didn’t think that was possible.

    The red lights are for the Johns to find the Hookers so it seems in this case it is for their students and other holders of the lights to hook for the university.

      I think you just discovered their plan…they are pulling a UNC fake class scam; if the prostitutes are offered to all students, then is it an impermissable benefit?? Hmmm??

    Not to mention, they will be able to claim that there is more support than there really is because of all of the people who have already put out red bulbs for Christmas decorations.

    Lamar Jackson is Superman…

      Stephen Johnson is kryptonite.

      When did those 2 choked games happen for the real Superman? I don’t really remember him having a fumble and 3 interceptions though I haven’t read the comics in decades.

      Well 👀 there’s one Loserville troll slithering out from underneath his crap lined rock. Wonder if he saw the heisman pose and the fumble. Sometimes you almost feel sorry for lil brother, almost.

    Serious question. Do we want Lamar to win the Heisman so that we can say we beat them, Steve Johnson outplayed the heisman, etc. Or do we want him to finish second so that we can watch 50% of Jefferson County implode and do a little light trolling while we watch the coming dumpster fire. I have been going back and forth.

    No ill will to Lamar though personally. That kid is an electric talent.

      I opt for the second choice. Dude is a superior athlete and performer but I truly believe he lost the Heisman during the UK game. If UofL pulls out the W, despite the less-than-apt ball handling he probably wins the trophy.

    I vote for the former, so Johnson can say he outplayed the heisman winner.

    I am going to put one out in the living room window right next to the leg lamp!
