The time to become great is now. We will win this day. We will get better. We will not let the clutches of quarantine keep us from being the best person we can be today.
Will today be perfect? Of course not. Not everything in life (especially during a pandemic) is within our control. We can only control what we can control. That is why I have made a list of what I will prioritize to improve on this spectacular Thursday.
1. Get outta here typos. I am sick and tired of carelessly omitting words from my social media posts promoting our wonderful website. Enough is enough.
2. Clothes, you’re being put away. They get dirty. They get cleaned. They sit in a basket. Enough is enough. It’s time to go to your home, clothes.
3. I do not like, like. Similes are fine only some of the time. It’s time to be assertive when I speak. No more “ums” and “likes.” Enough is enough.
4. More H2O. There’s no such thing as too much water. I’ve gone far too long sipping on coffee and soda to keep me energized when the appropriate amount of water will do just the trick. Enough is not enough. I need more water in my life.
Today I am taking baby steps to get better. Will I eradicate my bad habits permanently? Probably not, but the first step in positively changing behavior is to take the first step. Today I’m getting better. Won’t you join me?
If those uplifting words did not start your day off on the right foot, this beautiful scene at Churchill Downs should do the trick. Racing returns to the Bluegrass in two days.

Beautiful Visual Entertainment
For years Kentucky Sports Radio has primarily operated in the blog and podcast media spheres. The coronavirus quarantine has given us more time to broaden our horizons. Yesterday you saw it in a variety of forms with four different additions to the KSR YouTube channel. There’s conversations with former stars on the hardwood, one of the football team’s best blockers and the return of everyone’s favorite game show, Listicuffs. Sit back, relax and enjoy more than an hour of wonderful visual entertainment.
NCAA taking hands-off approach on return to sports
Mark Emmert told ESPN that the NCAA will not set the standard for the return to college sports. Instead of creating a date that all schools can follow, the NCAA is leaving all of the decisions up to local officials.
“Normally, there’s an agreed-upon start date for every sport, every season,” Emmert told ESPN, “but under these circumstances, now that’s all been derailed by the pandemic. It won’t be the conferences that can do that, either. It will be the local and state health officials that say whether or not you can open and play football with fans.”
The New 8-for-$8 Lunch is at KSBar and Grille
We are changing the game at lunchtime by offering eight entrees, with a drink and a side of fries or house-made chips, all for only $8 apiece. It’s a great deal that is making my mouth water and it’s only 9 a.m.
- 5 Traditional or 5 Boneless Wings
- BBQ Burger
- You’re A Great American Burger
- Chicken Tender Wrap (Grilled or Fried)
- 1,000 Point Club Sandwich
- 3-Piece Chicken Tender
- BBQ Pork Sandwich
- Chicken Sandwich (Grilled or Fried)
I cannot recommend the fried chicken sandwich, tossed in KSBar sauce and topped with pepper jack cheese enough. Do it to it and you will not regret it.
A New Survivor Champion
The 40th season of Survivor culminated with three excellent hours of reality television. Friend of the program, Kentucky Nick Wilson, unfortunately did not reach the mountaintop on Winners at War, but performed admirably into the top six. I won’t provide spoilers and share who won the game. I’ll just say the winner deserved it after an excellent season of play.
Campbell County Day on KSR
