Wake Up with UK Softball, Enes Kanter and the Preakness



The UK Softball team is doing work down at John Cropp Stadium, where they’re hosting the NCAA Regional this weekend. Kentucky has remained perfect throughout their first two games of tournament play, allowing no runs and committing no errors. The Cats bested DePaul on Friday 5-0 and Illinois yesterday 1-0.

Kentucky will meet Illinois again after the Fighting Illini defeated Marshall in today’s elimination game 10-2. First pitch takes place at 12 p.m. here in Lexington and Kindsey Bernhard will be there with some solid coverage, watch out for that later on in the day.

Enes Kanter had a heck of a day yesterday

It’s no secret that Kanter has hard feelings towards the Turkish government. Well, yesterday, his political beliefs left him in a Romanian airport, where he was refused entry into the country, his passport was revoked and was facing deportation to Turkey, where he would get arrested. However, the #FreeEnes campaign worked and the big guy was allowed to leave the country. I’m sure he’ll have some interesting things to say today.

UK Baseball drops final two to Florida

After a hot start Thursday night against Florida, the BatCats were unable to finish the Gators off in the last two games of the series. Kentucky lost Friday night 14-3 and yesterday 6-4. If the Cats had won yesterday’s matchup, they would have won a share of the SEC regular title, however they’ll be right back in action for the SEC Tournament next weekend in Hoover, where Trey Huntsman will be bringing you top notch coverage. The No. 3 Cats first game will be against the winner of No. 6 Vandy and No. 11 South Carolina on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m, tune in on SEC Network.

Cloud Computing wins the Preakness

Unfortunately for Todd Pletcher, there is not going to be another Triple Crown winner this racing season. Always Dreaming started out of the gate strong, dueling with Classic Empire for most of the race. However, Cloud Computing pulled it out in the final stretch at 13-1 odds.

Friends is still the greatest show ever

Since classes ended two weeks ago, I’ve had way too much time on my hands. In that time, I’ve watched four seasons of Friends and no matter how many times I see each episode, I still find myself cracking up every time. I don’t know of another show that does that. If you do, feel free to let me know: @haleysimpKSR.

    Greatest TV show ever was Mash. They were funny, but was telling a story at the same time. Greatest comedy was the Carol Burnett Show. Tim Conway and Harvey Korman worked magic together. Plus you had Carol and Vicki Lawrence……………….priceless,

    Friends? Really? Seinfeld is the greatest show ever. I am very disappointed in you Haley. Get Matt & Drew to talk some sense into you.

    BTW Big Bang is not even in the top 25 Randall Lee.

      Seinfeld > Friends. By like a million times. Gotta have All In the Family up there too. Sorry for the extra dinosaurs, Randall. Today’s “comedies” can’t hold a candle to the comedies of the Jurassic era.

    Best classic comedy – Seinfeld. Best current comedy – Silicon Valley
