Good morning, Kentucky-Sports-Radio-dot-com readers. I hope you’re enjoying your calm Friday because this time next week we’ll be stuffing your faces with news from UK Football Media Day. The Cats are set to begin camp next week and from there we will litter the site with football coverage until the season kicks off.
It’s hard to believe it’s almost here, but it’s almost here.
My apologies to Patrick Sparks.
Last night I listed several of Kentucky’s “Most Valuable Transfers” and Sparks’ name somehow got omitted. He was one of the first players I wrote down when I started the list, but once I put it all together he disappeared. I probably typed right over it because I’m an idiot.
So to Patrick Sparks and all of Muhlenberg County, I am sorry. I made a big mistake. I am a Muhlenberger by blood and I let the county down. Sparks was a VERY valuable transfer for the Cats.
I hope John Wall feels better today.
Wall got MURDERED on the internet once the Washington Wizards’ Twitter account shared his official Team USA photo. The former Cat was trending nationally for several hours as he was roasted even after the Wizards deleted the original tweet with the photo.
I got a hangover just looking at that pic.
KSR is back on Finebaum.
Matt Jones made it through four hours of Finebaum yesterday without ruining his invitation to come back today, so he will return to the ESPN airwaves for four more later this afternoon.
If you missed yesterday’s show with Tony Vanetti, who began the show by predicting Louisville will beat Alabama to start the season, you can hear it on podcast here.
I will be in as Matt’s co-host today, so tune in from 3-7 pm.
Help the South Lexington Youth Baseball team get to the World Series.

KSR Summer Tour is in Louisville.
The gang will be at Salsarita’s in Louisville for today’s remote and the early reports say it’s a big crowd. If you plan to go, you should take your own chair. If not, be prepared to stand.
