KSRomance: Need-to-Know Wednesday is Ready to Help You Find Love in 2012!

Hello, friends. Here we are again on another strangely warm Wednesday in the year 2012. You doing okay? You look good, you really do. Pete Rose’s haircut isn’t for everyone, but it really seems to fit well on you. It’s delightfully “retro,” and I think it’s a good look for you in the new year. I say go with it.

Friends, here at KSR we are nothing if we are not always looking out for you. And avid readers of this site may remember that in early 2008, we toyed with the idea of turning this entire medicine show into a dating site wherein Kentucky fans could meet Kentucky fans for companionship, friendship and even love. That project, which as you will recall lasted until October 2011, was extremely profitable for all of us and has led to a massive jump in babies named “Hubby” at Kentucky-area hospitals over the past two years. Of that, we’re extremely proud. As we’re looking to revamp the program, called KSRomance, in the new year we felt that it was time we updated some of the collateral materials used by our subscribers. For you today, then, I present an updated questionnaire which you may submit to us so we may help match you with the appropriate partner for exciting times today and steadfast company for your golden years. Because we don’t want you to die alone. Those of you wishing to enroll in the KSRomance service should take the time to answer the following questions appropriately and honestly. And remember — it’s not just romance, it’s KSRomance.

3. If I were to describe my potential partner in terms of recruiting, I would say he/she is:
a.) five stars — nothing but the best for me.
b.) three stars — Southern Illinois University isn’t beautiful, but sometimes it gets the job done.

5. If I were to describe my lovemaking skills in terms of a UK basketball player (1980-83), it would be:

b.) Dicky Beal — I have the skills, but also the quickness.

d.) Auburn Arena — Empty inside.

10. One thing people may not know about me is:
a.) I haven’t missed a UK Basketball game since 1990.
b.) Todd Svoboda is my uncle.
c.) In the late eighties, I held an extensive and imagined friendship with Ralph Beard.

    This is the problem with the internet. You guys are disgusting cowards. I Guarantee you would never say stuff like this to Tomlin’s face. There’s nothing wrong with feedback but insults are not criticism.

    # 3, U Spelling Suck! It’s a vial of blood, not a vile of blood. There’s no such thing as a vile of blood.

    U Suck is one of my best friends and stood up with me at my wedding. I can say that he %100 BLEEDS BLUE!!! So y’all can put to bed the “he must be a UL fan” jargon. He just doesn’t like the way Tomlin writes thats all…….Friends don’t let friends get falsely accused of being a Loserville fan!!!

    More importantly, are you employed, how healthy is your 401K and do you have season tickets in the lower section to the Kentucky Men’s Basketball Games…
