    Morning y’alls. How many weird or awkward interactions do you think Matt has had in Europe so far?

      Croatia: buys a woman a drink, tries to use Ky Joe’s language lesson, says something horribly insulting by accident.

      England: pulls out his horrific attempt at a British accent, gets punched in the face.

    • Laughs at someone’s accent/grammar the way he laughs at Ryan’s faux pas and gets decked.

      Greece: leaves all but one outfit behind at the hotel. Loses passport and has to use his Twitter profile to prove identity.

      Matt’s country behind should not make fun of anyone’s accent.

    • I think the Greece/passport one is the winner so far. J-Dub made me laugh.

      Over/under on Matt having to call Drew or Ryan because he needs a suit or something Fed-Ex’d to him? I mean, it’s happened before….

      JDub, if a suit has to be sent… hope it’s the 🐎 one he wore.

      The purple pimp suit.

    • He tells the ticket agent he needs to go to Birmingham. They assume from his accent he meant Alabama and he gets sent home 3 weeks early.

      *I actually heard about that happening to someone. I think it was a celebrity. It may have been in the reverse though. BTW, over there they pronounce it “Bir-ming-gum”.

    UK leads the series with Centre in basketball; but, ouch…Centre leads in football.

      *sigh* Come on Drew! Help a brother out with his totally innocuous comment!

      I know the feeling.

    • Okay, that comment won’t make it through, so, if you have a chance, look up the story on Centre upsetting Harvard in the 20’s or whenever it was. Great story. To Centre player’s surprise, ppl of Boston were for Centre bc they looked at Harvard as being uppity. Bostonians actually greeted them when they arrived on the train as I recall.

      It was so cold last winter, I saw a lawyer with his hands in his own pockets.

    • What do you have when you have 20 lawyers up to their necks in concrete?



    • runningunnin.454
      10:37 am July 7, 2017 Permalink

      Not enough concrete.

      What’s the difference between a lawyer and a hooker.
      Hint, answer is not “nothing”.

    • Did you hear about the lawyer on vacation whose sailboat capsized in dangerous, shark-infested waters?

      He surprised his traveling companions by volunteering to swim to the far-off shore for help. As he swam, his companions were startled by the appearance of two dorsal fins — great white sharks, heading straight toward the lawyer.

      To their surprise, the sharks allowed the lawyer to take hold of their fins, and escorted him safely to shore.

      When the lawyer returned with help, his companions asked him how he had managed such an incredible feat. The lawyer answered, “Professional courtesy.”

      What’s the difference between a dead skunk lying in the road and a dead lawyer lying in the road?

      There are skid marks in front of the skunk.

    I’m going to admit that there’s a small voice in my head saying “This is KY Football. They’re going to revert back any minute”. Logically that doesn’t make sense, but it’s hard to ever fully believe.

      When I was at UK, all the stores had signs that said “We Believe”. As the season progressed, one smart aleck store owner’s sign said, “We’re beginning to have our doubts”.

    It starts July 12 – Will any Under 19 guys not attend from the trip back?

      Remember that sinking feeling when U of L went right out and scored last season? Then remember the elation when Johnson stepped up to the line of scrimmage, smiled cool as the other side of the pillow, said “I love this sh*t,” then threw a deep ball for a touchdown to answer? Me too. Good times. I’m down with Stephen Johnson.

      Besides.. dude would be calm and under control playing in a hurricane.
      😉

    • Who knows? Maybe Drew Barker will push him aside and play the whole year like he did in the first half of the opener last year (I do wonder if he could have continued that play if not for the back injury…didn’t that happen in the 2nd half of Southern Miss, or was it at Florida?). Unless and until that happens though, Stephen is the guy, and word to his always unshakably calm demeanor. That will take him far in life.

    Everyone likes the back up Quarterback. Just glad we have options now days and don’t have to bring in a wide receiver .

      I used to read a book during those games (at my house), because I couldn’t not watch, but some of them were so bad.



    • J-Dub421
      11:33 am July 7, 2017 Permalink

      I still watched the games even though they were painful a lot of times. That was for the players and not BCG. I liked Darius, PPatt, Joe Crawford, Ramel Bradley, and company.

    Long ago “idiot” was a legal designation to get someone committed in Ky.

    For lawyers, they talk a lot about bar fights; but, today’s show is a lot better than yesterday.

    What UK basketball player would you want with you in a bar fight? I’m going to go with Jamaal Magloire or Demarcus Cousins.

      Rupp did suit up two football players as walk-ons, Darryl Bishop and Elmore Stephens…I think I would go with them.
