The Eastern Kentucky Echo is here, just in time for the holiday season. Finally, a voice-controlled, “semi-intelligent” personal assistant that gets you.
Too bad it’s a parody video because those things would sell like crazy across the Bluegrass.
Other fun things to know this morning…
Louisville lost. You hate to see it.
Louisville’s run as the No. 1 team in America didn’t last long because the Cards lost to unranked Texas Tech last night, 70-57, in Madison Square Garden. The Red Raiders had lost three in a row to Iowa, Creighton and Depaul prior to Tuesday night’s meeting, but then forced Louisville into 13 second-half turnovers en route to an upset of college basketball’s top-ranked team. Louisville is now the fourth No. 1 team to lose so far this season in only the sixth week.
Coach Cal was at Notre Dame to watch Brad light up the Irish.
The youngest Calipari hit four 3-pointers in front of his old man in South Bend last night. Brad went 4-of-5 from outside for 12 points, but Detroit Mercy lost big in the end, 110-71.
Bam Adebayo had a night.
Get your All-Star votes ready for Bam Adebayo because he deserves them this year, his fourth year in the league. Last night Bam had a triple-double with 30 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in the win over the Atlanta Trae Youngs.
(Herro went scoreless in 23 minutes with six missed 3-point tries, but we are ignoring his off-night to celebrate Bam’s big night.)
You can watch the UK women’s team in Rupp Arena tonight.
Kentucky will play its first of back-to-back games downtown in Rupp tonight, first against Winthrop. Then on Sunday, the women return to Rupp to host Louisville in the Cats’ “Pack The House” game.
For ticket information, KSR’s interview with Matthew Mitchell and to read about how awesome Rhyne Howard is, click right here for our latest story on the women’s team. Go Cats.
There is a new KSR Football Podcast! And a new Sources Say Podcast!
Nick and I didn’t have Austin MacGinnis because he’s off kicking for the Dallas Renegades and we didn’t have Charles Walker because he was busy on the insurance selling-grind in Louisville, but we did have the return of our dear friend and original co-host, Freddie Maggard. Listen here.
You can also listen to the new Sources Say Podcast but I don’t know anything about that one because I wasn’t on it and I haven’t listened yet. I assume you’ll get a lot of Kai Sotto talk. Listen here.
I want to quit KSR to work for this company…
A Baltimore-based real estate company surprised its employees with a Christmas bonus of $10 million to split across 198 people. The distribution was based on years of service and the average person took home around $50,000 for the holiday.
Meanwhile, here at KSR we will be giving our employees one randomly-selected item from Matt’s backseat.
Tom Leach will be a guest on today’s KSR.
You’ve heard his voice many times as the “Voice of the Wildcats,” but today you can hear Tom Leach in his first role as a KSR co-host. Tune in to hear some of Tom’s stories of calling UK games for the past two-plus decades.
