So as usual, things go astray sometimes when Ryan Lemond is involved. Yesterday, I went and hung out at the Horseshoe Casino for the KSR show, in the empty ballroom with Matt and Ryan. When I arrived, Ryan leaned over to me and said, “You know, I hear I’m the odds-on favorite to win the game show”. I, of course, felt the need to tweet this out, forgetting I had set Tuesday, September 29th to announce all the contestants for Listicuffs:
So, @ryanlemond just said he is the odds on favorite to win the Listicuffs Championship. Let's hope he's better at this than FanDuel…

One fellow contestant took umbrage with Lemond’s declaration of premature victory, and also took to Twitter in response:
Bull!!! I will beat Lemond! https://t.co/xSkWQVZMdr

That’s right, country music artist and Kentucky boy, J.D. Shelburne has thrown his hat into the Listicuffs arena. The quarterfinal match has been set between Ryan Lemond and J.D. Shelburne, in what is sure to be a heated contest. The episode schedule has not been set yet, but we look forward to seeing these two square off. Ryan just better hope there are no math or fantasy football lists.
We have six more contestants that will be revealed next Tuesday, unless anyone else takes to throwing punches on social media. If you missed it, be sure to check out the Listicuffs Introduction video here.
