Good Saturday morning friends! It’s another lazy summer Saturday, but good news: only a few more of these until it’s COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON! AKA the best time of the year! We’ve almost survived! It’s been a loooong summer without Kentucky sports. We’ve just got to hold on a little longer. Here’s a couple of things to distract you while you wait:

Yeah, I’m ready for 50 days from now. Coincidentally, our first football game falls on my 25th birthday, so Stoops I’d like a win, please.
Wenyen Gabriel went off
Last night in a summer league game against Golden State, Wenyen did this:

The Kings beat the Warriors 69-67. Wenyen looked like a Monstar from Space Jam.
Summer League Updates
Speaking of the NBA summer league, here’s how things went down last night for our former cats:
- The Knicks beat the Pelicans 102-83
- The Hawks beat the Clippers 97-81
- The Timberwolves beat the Nuggets 83-71
The Former Cat who’s quickly become the star of summer league, Kevin Knox didn’t play last night. Here’s today’s summer league schedule if you’re needing something to watch today:
ICYMI: Immanuel Quickley does the #InMyFeelingsChallenge
The new viral challenge that’s taken over the internet has made its way to Kentucky Basketball. We all saw Tyler Herro’s…attempt at it. And last night, we got Quickley’s. Here’s the video in case you missed it last night:

Personally, I like his better. Though, I wish he had changed it to “Quickley, do you love me?” WHat’s the over/under on how many days we’ll have to wait until we see Drake’s bff, Coach Cal do his own version?
We’ve got more Peach Jam coverage coming your way
Our new guy, TJ Walker is doing some great work covering the Peach Jam in Augusta. Seriously, if you haven’t been following you need to here. Check back on this website and app throughout the day for more Peach Jam reading. It’ll make your Saturday better, trust me.
Lexington Burger Week continues
If you’re in or around Lexington and you haven’t been eating burgers this week, what are you doing? You’ve only got today and tomorrow left to get a delicious $5 specialty burger. I’ve gone HARD this year for Burger Week, eating one every day. My personal faves? The Spartan from Athenian Grill, The Carribean Burger from Fidas and The Smokey Burger from County Club. Get yourself one, or five. I’m not judging.
That’s all from me today, friends. Have a fun and safe Saturday – wear your sunscreen and Go Cats!
