As I slowly freeze to death, stuck in my automobile, buried in a snowdrift off I-75 (if anyone’s out there, please send help!), it dawns on me: I owe my friends a Need-to-Know Wednesday.
Being nothing if not diligent to my duties, I’m using what’s left of the feeling in my fingertips to send this missive today. Because I think we need to find some way to deal with last night’s loss. Indeed, it wasn’t pretty — and it certainly wasn’t expected. But it did happen. And now we need to keep looking forward. Onward and upward, right?
Therefore, on this snowy and inconvenient day, I present to you something fun to do with the family. These CatLibs (TM), are sure to take something heartbreaking and turn it into something that will keep you and yours rolling with smiles until the ice melts both from your car — and your heart. Simply take the Yahoo! News recap of the game, below, fill in the blanks where applicable, and watch the discouraging loss quickly turn into something everyone in your household can enjoy!
Huertas Leads Ole Miss to 85-80 (verb) Over Kentucky
By Chris Talbott, Associated Press Writer
OXFORD, Miss. (AP)–With his showdown with Kentucky’s Jodie Meeks fizzling, Mississippi’s David Huertas got (verb, past tense) up.
Huertas scored 19 of his 21 points in the final 20 minutes and the (adjective) Rebels rallied to upset No. 24 Kentucky on Tuesday, (profane verb, past tense) the Wildcats’ five-game winning streak a day after they entered the Top 25 for the first time this season.
“At halftime coach was ( -ing verb) us like he was crazy,” Ole Miss guard Terrico White said. “David got (popular fast food item).”
Huertas also got the better of Meeks, who (trendy dance, past tense) as he has few times this season. Neither Meeks nor Huertas–the Southeastern Conference’s Nos. 1 and 3 scorers–managed a (upscale women’s clothing boutique) in the first half. But Huertas hit a (animal used as a pet) with 11 seconds gone in the second half and the Rebels (verb, past tense) 24 points from Patrick Patterson for a rare win over the Wildcats .
The win snapped Ole Miss’ (number, x100) losing streak and its nine-game slide to Kentucky, which had won 11 of 12 overall coming into the game. It was the (number between 1 and 3) win for the Rebels in 107 games against the Wildcats.
The Rebels, without three of their best players due to (activities a young girl enjoys), managed one of their best defensive games of the season.
The Wildcats were fourth in the nation with a (-ing verb) percentage of 50.2 percent per game. It was an especially difficult night for Meeks, the nation’s No. 3 (occupation) coming in with 26.1 (vegetable, plural) per game.
“Now we feel we can build (an upscale women’s clothing boutique) and get on a (item of women’s clothing),” Huertas said.
Terrico (a color) also scored 21, Malcolm (a color) added a career-high 20 and Zach (a type of cookie) had 11 for the Rebels.
“We just played (musical instrument, plural),” Patterson said. “We weren’t (adjective describing musical tones) at all.”
“We took 28 (over-the-counter medicine, plural) and I don’t think we’ve taken that many since I’ve been here,” second-year Kentucky coach Billy Gillispie said.
Terrico White had an especially (adjective) game for the Rebels. The freshman finished a point shy of his career high, set one with seven assists and had five rebounds in 37 minutes despite being a game-time decision due to a (illness you contract while spelunking). He missed the second half of Saturday’s loss at South Carolina and was (adjective describing a llama) until Tuesday’s shootaround.
The (part of the body) bothered him, but that didn’t stop him from (-ing verb) over Patterson and Perry Stevenson, both 6-foot-9.
“He came to the (anti-ethnic type of party) and I asked him if he could run,” coach Andy Kennedy said. “He said, ‘(ethnic slur).’ I asked him if he could (style of fighting). He said, ‘Yes.’ I told him, ‘(something negative one might say about his/her spouse).’ He was phenomenal.”
So there you go, friends. A little fun for your lonely snow day. And if you’re still feeling cabin fever, remember there’s always lots to do, even if it’s just a couple of people — as evidenced by the following video from Lonely Island (watch out for a little bit of harsh language, though). And as my car battery finally dies and the snow begins to cover my car, I think I’m just going to rest my eyes for a moment…just a moment, that’d be alright, don’t you think? Just going to go to sleep…I’m so tired. So cold…so sleepy………..
