Good morning friends and Happy Sunday! Am I the only one who dreads going back to work on Monday a little more in the summer? I’ve only been up for a couple of hours and I’ve already been hit with that Sunday feeling of dread and overwhelmedness. Ugh. Let’s distract ourselves from the reality of the week by reading some sports news, shall we?
Kevin Knox wants to be Rookie of the Year
Kevin Knox’s first few moments as a Knicks player was filled with booing and a less than great response (can we ban that kid from the draft please?). But, that hasn’t stopped him from being positive this week. In an interview with The New York Post, when asked about what his goals are, Knox said he’s striving for Rookie of the Year this upcoming season.
“Rookie of the Year. That’s gonna be on my wall in my room. That’s what I want, that’s what I’m gonna work for. I don’t got it like painted on my wall, it’s just a piece of paper with Rookie of the Year on it, every time I wake up, look at it, just know what I’m going to work for” said Knox.
You still wanna boo this guy, Knicks fans?
ICYMI: Boogie is Back!
As a Pelicans fan, I have to admit that I did scream when I first saw the videos Boogie put out yesterday. I can’t help but want to rock my “Boogie and the Brow” shirt all day today to celebrate Cuz’s rehab success. If you haven’t seen these twitter videos, we have a post with all of them here but here’s my favorite one:

Can we work on getting Keldon Johnson a twitter, please? I feel like he really needs one.
I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t really see the hype over The World Cup – even a couple of years ago when the USA was in it. Sure, I dressed in my patriotic garb and cheered and watched, but it was mainly an excuse to drink. I tried watching the first game yesterday, I really did. I just can’t get into it. However, if the World Cup is your thing, then here’s the lineup for today:
I’ll be napping. Yall can have fun though.
Classic KY Clips has a great moment to relive today
Following this Twitter account has given me so much joy. Here’s what they posted last night:

Man. I don’t think I’ll ever forget that game.
What’s your favorite sports moment?
What’s the best sports moment that you got to witness live? ?
— SB Nation (@SBNation) June 24, 2018
SB Nation asked followers what their favorite moment they got to witness live was and some of the replies are really great. Of course, the UMBC Athletics twitter (remember them?) tweeted out the best reply. But, this got me thinking, as Kentucky fans we’ve sure had some amazing moments to witness and while I haven’t witnessed some of the most recent iconic ones live, I’ve still seen some pretty cool ones.
My top 3? The 2014 South Carolina football game, the 2015 Louisville basketball game watching Pitino flip the bird, and the 2009 Georgia football game. Sure, that UGA wasn’t anything special but I was there in Athens surrounded by UGA friends and family, so it felt darn good to win.
What are yours? Let me know in the comments.
That’s all I have for today guys. Go Cats and Happy Sunday!
