      Old guy walked into a bar, went up to a priest, and said “I had sex with 18 year old twins today, oi vey”.

      I think the spot is fine, especially for one that will get tons of free publicity from KSR. And there are a lot of reasons businesses fail.

      “Not to be a blankhole” is a new KSR catch phrase for sure.



    • JerryDamage
      10:31 am April 5, 2018 Permalink

      Yeah I like that as a saying. Like a new way of saying “Bless his heart”.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:34 am April 5, 2018 Permalink

      Maybe that’s kind of like saying “with all due respect,” in that you are now free to go ahead and actually be a “blankhole” after you preface your statement with that. Ha!



    • JerryDamage
      10:36 am April 5, 2018 Permalink

      “Not to be a blankhole, but when is PJ going to learn how to shoot free throws?”

      Yeah I think it works.

    The 2015 team bonded over what happened in that pool that day.



    • RealCatsFan

      Are you talking about the impromptu “show” that happened in the little island in the middle of the pool? I think there was definitely some “bonding” that went on with that, but probably not the kind that Cal had in mind! πŸ˜‰



    • JerryDamage

      Yeah. Cal got so freaked out over it that he left the team out there to watch it.

    • J-Dub421
      11:22 am April 5, 2018 Permalink

      I think it’s very likely. Brad is only a sophomore this year, so Cal will definitely be here for 2 more years, and at that point Cal will probably stay until he decides to retire from coaching.

    I have an argument I would like to end with a good friend. He states that 21 of 21 players that declared for the draft did not come back to UK during Cal’s time at UK. I can’t argue against that because I can’t remember anything different. Of course he is quoting an article from the Herald, but I can’t believe that is correct. In my mind, I thought that more declared than actually stayed in the draft during Cal’s time here.

      Hami declared last season and came back. The rule allowing them to return hasn’t been in place for all of the Cal years, so a lot of those 21 wouldn’t have had the option to return.



    • drew_123
      11:06 am April 5, 2018 Permalink

      Hami declared last year and came back. Before that the rule wasn’t in place to allow them to come back once declaring.

      The ability to “test the waters” has been around for awhile, but they have changed the deadlines here and there.

    Didn’t the entire team declare a few seasons ago?



    • Realme

      Cal said they would, but I don’t think it worked out that way.



    • JerryDamage
      11:10 am April 5, 2018 Permalink

      He wanted them all to declare one year, probably the first year that you could declare and come back. I don’t think they all did it but he wanted them to.



    • J-Dub421
      11:20 am April 5, 2018 Permalink

      I think that was 2 years ago. He said everyone should test the waters, but neither Willis nor Hawkins did so.



    • JerryDamage
      11:21 am April 5, 2018 Permalink

      Yeah I remember him saying that like Johnny David should do it and frame it to show his grandkids.



  19. ky196
    11:14 am April 5, 2018 Permalink

    I thought that as long as you didn’t hire an agent you were still considered an amature and could come back if you left the draft before the May deadline.



  20. ky196
    11:24 am April 5, 2018 Permalink

    The argument started after he found out that PJ decided to test the waters. He has some pretty compelling numbers as far as points per game and rebounds per game, but does an NBA team really think he would be worth using a first round pick on him?
    And if not, why would he leave instead of returning for what could be a group that could help him rise in the draft to a first round?



    • JerryDamage
      11:33 am April 5, 2018 Permalink

      I think for him it’s more about going through the process and gaining experience so that when he does come out, maybe next year, then he’s already been through it and knows what to expect.

    I don’t see a single politician anywhere in this country giving up or cutting the amount of their own pension, yet they criticize teachers and other public servants (who are paid significantly less money than politicians) for wanting to keep their pensions.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:46 am April 5, 2018 Permalink

      None of them should even have pensions. They should have to sink or swim with a 401K in the market like the rest of us regular slobs. Wish I could vote myself a pay raise every year. I haven’t had a raise in 8 years.



    • ClutchCargo

      Political office is a part-time job. How many other part-time employees in this country have a pension? That does get under my skin a little.

    Okay, since you went there with the politician comment, if they had to live with what they vote on, pension, health care plan, etc., thing would result completely differently when they vote!!! I’m not saying, I’m just saying…..



    • J-Dub421
      12:06 pm April 5, 2018 Permalink

      That’s my whole point. They always give themselves great pay, healthcare, pensions, etc. Then give all other public servants really crappy things and act like we should all thank them for kicking everyone in the junk.

    I spent 7 years in the Marine Corps from 1979 thru 1985 when there were not major conflicts that we were involved in. Just happened that way. I get no special benefits for my service from the government. I expect none. But, if I had stayed and served 20 years for a retirement pension, I’d be fuming about a possible pension change!!! Why should our state employees be any different? They became employees under a pension plan and should not get something different than what they were hired into! A contract is a contract!



    • JerryDamage
      11:57 am April 5, 2018 Permalink

      They didn’t change the current pensions. New teachers just won’t get it and will go into the hybrid plan. We still have the 40 Billion that we owe on it. This doesn’t change that. It just stops it from getting any worse.



    • J-Dub421
