because i'm a nerd, that's a list of all the words with more than 6 characters that have been posted. The size of the word equates to how often it gets used. NERDS!

Phil on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 12:03 PM

er, maybe bigger than 8 letters. whatever

joe on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 12:19 PM

I am seeing 7 characters

Barry on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 12:23 PM

anyone notice that words like drinking and fucking were much larger than reading. What does that say about us?

Phil on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 12:28 PM

seven it is. i also like how big words from the phrase "anything going on tonight/this weekend" look pretty predominate.

i wanted to do all words 4+ but there were an absolute shit ton and it crashed the program that i used to create this thing

Brent on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 12:39 PM

What is the word under fucking and the word in the M in something?

Phil on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 12:43 PM

got me. i went ahead and created a permanent one if anyone wants to play with it

we don't use a lot of words bigger than seven letters long

Accountants are retarded. So I am on another math project and I am trying to work with an accountant. We are completely not seeing anything the same. they think wierd.

joe on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 2:06 PM

Chris' power just went out I heard.

joe on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 2:09 PM

Anybody want to go visit Brock? How is the weather?

douglas on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 2:11 PM

so i went home at lunch to throw some food out and get a couple changes of clothes, on my way back in to the office i got stuck on shepherdsville b/c there was a big ass fire. as i finally got by the four fire trucks and two cop cars that had literally passed me to get there, i saw a shit ton of smoke coming out of that place and firemen scurrying everywhere

Phil on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 2:15 PM

i was tempted to fly out to LA for the weekend and visit my sister

Bigworm on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 2:57 PM

I still don't have power.

2 days ago, LGE had 10,000 more online, last night they got 10,000 more online with 172,000 outtages still out. At this rate, not counting new ones we are 17 days away from being restored. Awesome.

joe on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 3:15 PM

With people losing power still, I feel like we are doing a calculus problem with water going into a jug at this rate and water coming out at another rate, when will the jug be empty, in this case if the jug over flows all of us die.

Wait was that a Bruce Willis movie?

Cuban had power as of this morning and I think I am heading to his place tonight if he still has it.

joe on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 3:29 PM

I just heard 17 inches on Monday.

Bigworm on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 3:30 PM

Joe - I fucking hope you are kidding. I heard 1-3 inches here and 3-5 inches just south of us.

joe on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 3:34 PM

It is through the grapevine. A woman I work with is a friend of a woman at Wave 3 and Belski was saying it could be bad. She said he said 17 inches. You know how that he said she said stuff goes. I hope it is a load of crap but I just thought I would cite my sources.

Bigworm on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 3:38 PM

That's awesome, I am goign to make me a fucking igloo and live in it for a couple days. Video is all and put it on youtube. I'll be the Kentucky Eskimo and be famous. Caching $$$

Phil on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 3:50 PM

i also saw someone talking about how we might get a bad snowstorm this weekend too.

fuck a duck. I think I really might just go ahead and buy an air mattress for work. This is gay.

douglas on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 3:52 PM

i had heard 9-10 inches sunday night

joe on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 4:01 PM

I just heard that they are in my backyard working. No whammy, No whammy, No whammy, No whammy, stop!

If I have power party at my house? I have left over booze from New Years.

joe on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 4:03 PM

Dude, I just heard that went around the office to check for dress code violations today. For the love of god, we don't have electricity, be thankful we aren't dead and made it in to work.

douglas on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 4:47 PM

if you have power fuck yes party at your house, i'm not spending all fucking night cramped up in my sister's condo

Phil on Saturday, January 31, 2009 at 2:13 AM

ok, because I was bored and unhappy with the results of the first one, I made a new image. This time I took every word in the list and excluded the 1000 most common words in the english language. New results with a much bigger version if you click is up there for shits and giggles. Now shit like uk, wes, philco are all there. I also made sure that "big jay" remained together instead of split apart.

I also made it more horizontal so it ain't so fucking big on the first page.

NERDS NERDS NERDS!

Did you bet UK to lose to the Cocks like they are about to?

Bigworm on Saturday, January 31, 2009 at 10:18 PM

Yay and I got power back!!!

You know what, Coach Billy Clyde can either learn to fucking coach or I'll send that fucker back to Texas personally.

Either way, atleast learn when to fucking call a timeout and stop the momentum from changing hands.

UK is up by 10 with 10 minutes to go, UK turn overs lead to two three pointers by USC. UK up by 6, BCG should call timeout. Fuck no, he falls asleep or something and USC goes on a 14-2 run.

Way to fucking go numnuts.

joe on Sunday, February 01, 2009 at 9:19 AM

There is some gay thing on Facebook right now called 25 random things about you, well the whole Facebook thing is pretty gay, but Mike Bush had his posted and ripped the bellarmine athletic training staff. This message below was in the comments on his. Every now and then Facebook is good for a gem like this:

Larry Hugh Jones Jr at 2:13pm January 29
Who were the athletic trainers? Dave and Suzie? They were awful...did anyone actually get better by going there? Speaking of good times, do you remember when McAllister scaled down the side of the hotel and jumped on the Waffle House so he could go see that girl?

Phil on Sunday, February 01, 2009 at 12:11 PM

The bellarmine training staff is the reason my knees and hips are junk, and I think they caused more damage to my ribs when I asked him about the cracking sound coming from my back.

Good times.

joe on Sunday, February 01, 2009 at 12:36 PM

The answer to any injury is ice and stem. I think they told chris to treat his cancer that way. You have power Phil?

Phil on Sunday, February 01, 2009 at 12:43 PM

came home from hockey and had power. immediately turned the heat up to 80.

immediately realized that my furnace only blows luke warm air. replaced the filter and still no dice. gay. So I got the place up to 65 which was better than the sub 50 it was the previous two nights.

Phil on Sunday, February 01, 2009 at 12:44 PM

they treated my tendentious by giving me a cortisone rub on my knee, telling me to run with the girls instead of the guys and then 30 minutes of ice after wards.

It wasn't until I went to see Rudy Ellis did anyone tell me to stretch more often, and that I'm absolutely destroying everything in my knees by continuing to run.

Phil on Sunday, February 01, 2009 at 3:07 PM

i liked the part about the basements

Brent on Sunday, February 01, 2009 at 3:48 PM

nice burn

Brock on Sunday, February 01, 2009 at 5:38 PM

So are you all still covered in ice and expecting a blizzard? Its 55 and sunny here.

Phil on Sunday, February 01, 2009 at 5:47 PM

57 and sunny up here.

Snow is on tuesday

Bigworm on Sunday, February 01, 2009 at 10:13 PM

Hate to see Warner lose; It was an entertaining game.

#62 for Pitt should have had another holding play called on him when Holmes made both nice catches (the catch and run in the final 2 minutes and the TD catch). He hogtied his guy on both.

Phil on Sunday, February 01, 2009 at 11:12 PM

Finally tally after everything was added up: I won 10 bucks, brent lost 10. I could have sworn that was lime green gatorade though.

Yellow my ass...

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 7:45 AM

is there a difference?

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 7:45 AM

The Cardinals could have used Rod Tidwell in the first half.

douglas on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 9:12 AM

this is kinda sick, but was anybody else laughing their ass off when harrison collapsed after running for that 100-yd touchdown

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 9:31 AM

Kurt Warner lost that game.

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 9:37 AM

Anybody have any miracle cures for stuffy nose sore throat and all that shit? I think I am dying.

Bigworm on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 9:43 AM

I won't pin it on Warner himself. Edgerin James really hurt Arizona in the first half after Breston ran the ball back in Steelers territory and he was called for the chop block and then dropped the fucking ball coming out of the flat. Surely to God, one of the receivers could have caught up with the guy running the ball back 100 yards.

douglas on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 9:43 AM

walk it off

Bigworm on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 9:45 AM

Yeah take a sick day and get hammered at home.

Bigworm on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 9:47 AM

IRS accepted mine and Abby's electronic tax filing. Jackpot baby.

I know from a financial point of view I should be pissed because I am giving the government a fucking tax free loan, but at the same time it's nice to get a big check back from Uncle Sam....especially when he doesn't have the money.

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 9:52 AM

I like Worm's idea

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 10:18 AM

Is it possible to get high or drunk on day quil? I am loopy right now from just tipping the bottle a few times.

I can't wait for our very own groundhog, JeffersonCountyPhilCo, to show up today. If he sees his shadow, it's six more weeks of not getting laid.

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 11:08 AM

Mean but very funny.

douglas on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 11:10 AM

sometimes the truth hurts

Phil on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 11:13 AM

Ha, I've been here for like 30 minutes. Suck on that!

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 11:17 AM

so what is the verdict?

Bigworm on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 11:20 AM

I am guessing he walked in shadows or wasn't fully awake yet so he couldn't see his shadow.

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 11:23 AM

He slept in his office

Bigworm on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 11:23 AM

do you guys have power back yet?

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 11:26 AM

I think everybody does now that I know of besides the guy in the cube next to me. He is in Meade County so I don't think he has ever had electricity because he lives in a shack in the woods with Sasquatch and eats what he kills cooking it over a fire in his backyard.

Bigworm on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 11:30 AM

One of Abby's work colleagues lives in Madisonville or Madison something like that. Anyway, the town is going to be without power for 4-7 weeks because some utility poles actually broke and shit. Sucks to be them.

Phil on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 11:32 AM

i have a permanent 5 o'clock shadow. six more weeks.

i got power. brent's buddy rory is the only person i know still without power.

Phil on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 11:45 AM

final betting tally:

Won $4.76 on the heads bet
Won $8.50 on the "Ben Roethlisberger being said before Kurt Warner" bet
Won $13.50 on the Food items mentioned by John Madden bet

Then I lost five other $5 bets.

I SWORE that was lime/green gatorade but they said it was yellow. Jerks.

Phil on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 11:49 AM

Andy Kennedy while being arrested:
"I’m here for the Big East SEC challenge," Kennedy was heard saying on the video, WLWT reports. "I’m playing Louisville and Rick Pitino tomorrow. I was the UC head coach. I am going to be on national television. If I’m not standing there at 9 p.m. tomorrow, this is an international altercation."

The officer's response:
"You think we’ve never arrested somebody that’s made national media? …We deal with the Bengals all the time," said the officer.

Ole Miss must be so proud. Xavier coach Sean Miller is the class act of college hoops coaches in Cincinnati. Excellent recruiter, phenomenal coach and you never hear anything shitty about him ... plus, he was on the Johnny Carson Show as a kid.

Bigworm on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 12:04 PM

Jerome - do you think Ole Miss really cares? It's not football and he didn't kill anybody.

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 12:23 PM

So it is a playoff beard but for getting laid?

Phil on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 12:27 PM

some girl called me sexy on thursday with the playoff beard, but it still had to go once i had warm water.

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 12:34 PM

Brian Guinn and I are discussing the no call on the Santonio Holmes celebration where he did the Lebron James baby powder thing with the football. He used the ball as a prop automatic 15 yards. Guinn researched it and it is 15 yards on the kickoff. That is huge field position they lost because of the no call. It is the biggest game of the year they should have the best refs for the game and make it right.

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 1:16 PM

5 MVPs of Super bowl Sunday. When I read "Girl's got heart" I thought Philco had started writing for yahoo sports.

4. Matilda. Did you see my girl Matilda getting after it during the Puppy Bowl? She's a nine-week-old beagle, and there were other, bigger dogs bringing the noise to her like James Harrison on the blitz, but she never backed down. Girl's got heart. Right now, she's very close to Eli in the Puppy Bowl MVP voting, but Eli didn't do anything except be insanely cute and furry.

I feel that if you make reference to bringin' the noise it should be followed in the near future with some mentioning of the funk.

Jerome on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 1:26 PM

I'll watch that Holmes celebration again. I thought they were gonna flag him. After seeing the highlight, the NFL Gameday guys thought there should've been a flag. Is there a difference if he staged the celebration in the end zone right after the TD or on the sidelines while the play was being reviewed?

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 2:06 PM

Laura is applying for a job with the Dept of Agriculture. This is straight from the website on the job description.

As an Animal Care Inspector for an assigned geographic area of the
state of Kentucky, the incumbent is responsible for highly technical
inspection duties pertaining to the physical and psychological well
being of animals covered by the Animal Welfare Act. Covered animals
include common mammals such as dogs, cats, and farm animals; plus
numerous exotic mammals including lions, tigers, bears, elephants,
primates, and marine mammals.

It is a GS 8/9 while I am a 10. Who would have thought dealing with veterans pays better then lions and tigers and bears.

douglas on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 2:30 PM

i still have no power. i'm like in the middle of a doughnut, everyone around me has power but i don't, i'm still highly pissed. my mom lives in the same development and has power and i don't. i've been with my sister since wednesday until last night when i stayed with my mom. i'm not a happy camper

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 2:48 PM

That blows.

douglas on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 2:50 PM

she did just email me though and ask what i wanted for dinner, so i got that going for me i guess

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 2:53 PM

Do any of the condos over there? I guess Lori and Sean don't over there. They got it back for a half hour and then it went back out on Saturday.

Phil on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 2:56 PM

lori just texted me and said the transformer has to be replaced...

joe on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 3:01 PM

sorry douglas

douglas on Monday, February 02, 2009 at 3:10 PM

i was about to say that all the condos are out, and now i guess i know why

Phil on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 12:09 AM

so my new neighbor baron stopped me in the parking lot. he wanted to know where to go ice skating in louisville. he just moved in because his new roommates old roommate got locked up. baron is just on house arrest, but he gets off in march. Apparently taking girls to go ice skating is big pimping if you are black, which i should have known from The Program.

But get this: when the power went out he couldn't go stay at his mom's house in Indiana. He had to stay in his damn condo the whole time only leaving for work. Hell, the jails were the first place to get power. I'd be tempted to walk my house down to the county jail and tell them to throw my ass in a cell for the next week after the first two days.

Jerome on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 9:21 AM

Who would win a fantasy matchup between the Green Baron and this newly introduced Black Baron? Do either of them have special powers that were obtained during a solar eclipse?

joe on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 9:36 AM

Phil, can you make me a video resume like the one Barney Stinson has?

Brock on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 9:45 AM

The Green Baron was given the moniker for the special power of being able to completely dominate Candystand minigolf with the green ball.

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 9:45 AM

So I am on Kentucky.scout.com and somebody mentions how Miami (OH) is often called the cradle of football coaches having spawned Sid Gillman, Woody Hayes, Bo Schembechler, and Ara Parseghian.

Then this guy points out that Tulsa is even better for basketball coaches. I am thinking no way, but I have to say it is true.

Head Coaches at Tulsa include:
1. Clarence Iba (Henry Iba's brother)
2. Nolan Richardson
3. J. D. Barnett
4. Tubby Smith
5. Buzz Peterson
6. Bill Self

Assitant Coaches there include:
1. Billy Gillispie
2. Flip Saunders
3. Kevin O'Neill
4. Tom Izzo
5. Mike Anderson

Now that is some list.

joe on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 9:50 AM

I still think the key is to be an assistant to Rick Pitino.

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 9:56 AM

Who else has done anything besides Donovan and Tubby Smith under Pitino?

douglas on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 9:58 AM

ralph willard, i know there's more, i just can't think of them off the top of my head

joe on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 10:02 AM

something like 20 former assistants and players are current D-I coaches.

joe on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 10:07 AM

reggie theus was coaching in the NBA.

joe on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 10:07 AM

players:
pelphry and ford

joe on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 10:10 AM

did calipari coach under pitino?

Cronin coached under pitino, there is willards son who went somewhere to coach.

Phil on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 10:30 AM

the big names:
Ralph Willard (Holy Cross), Tubby Smith (Minnesota), Herb Sendek (Arizona State), Billy Donovan (Florida), Mick Cronin (Cincinnati) and Kevin Willard (Iona).

Stu Jackson (New York Knicks), Jeff Van Gundy (Houston Rockets), Reggie Theus (Sacramento Kings) and Jim O'Brien (Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers, and Indiana Pacers).

according to his bio there have been 21 that have gone on to be D-1 head coaches

Phil on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 10:33 AM

shit, and Bernadette Locke-Mattox who coached the UK women's team

joe on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 10:33 AM

Don't forget D-2 star Scotty Davenport

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 11:56 AM

Yeah so again I say, what has anybody else other than Tubby and Billy D done?

Scotty Davenport is going to win the D-II title and turn Bellarmine into a D-II powerhouse.

joe on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 12:19 PM

Um, 4 guys coached in the NBA or still do, I call that an accomplishemnt. ASU has a solid team this year with one of the top players in the nation in James Harden, Holy Cross and Iona make the tournament. As for the other 13 guys I am sure they are doing fine for themselves.

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 12:22 PM

Pitino has a solid coaching family, no doubt...but I guess I am putting too much emphasis on winning titles....like we all do.

Phil on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 12:24 PM

Text message conversation i received from my mom and aunt:

My mom and aunt have officially made the turn towards being 50% of the golden girls

When you set it up, sometimes you have to spike it.

Sorry couldn't resist.

I think working for pitino as an assistant would be a great stepping stone to get to Tulsa to get a national championship. If only we could all be Tubby Smith, win a championship to be run out of town to the great land of Minnesota, the land of 1000 lakes, where if a UK fan finds him he will be found at the bottom of one of them.

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 12:48 PM

What is really interesting is the way the fanbase is split over Tubby Smith. You either love him or hate him. I love him.

OTS does a radio show in Minnesota and he still gets callers from KY that wish him well and tell him they are Minnesota fans now.

Barry any surprise commits or decomitts for LSU tomorrow?

I heard Darren Myles, #8 ranked safetly, was down to LSU and UK. Take that for whatever it's worth.

Barry on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 1:47 PM

heard that too. the rumor mill down here says he still goes to ut. no real surprises expected. tahj jones (LB) committed yesterday, barkevious mingo (LB) has made up his mind and basically said lsu. most think we get randle, but i don't think anyone really knows. janzen jackson (CB) stays home. We won't likely stay #1 because we don't have that many players left on the uncommitted list. Bama, Florida, and USC, still have guys on the board. Bama will sign 30+ players again.

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 03, 2009 at 1:51 PM

I was looking at Scout.com's team rankings. UK comes in at 11 out of 12 in the SEC and their scout.com team ranking is #27 in the country. That is pretty impressive for the league.

Barry on Wednesday, February 04, 2009 at 9:01 AM

wes, the big news late yesterday was that randle's dad said on the radio that he was concerned with the depth at receiver at lsu. there's a kid named benton that committed 2 yrs ago, but has yet to make his grades. both are receivers from the same hs and benton started over randle in hs (but he is 2 years older). anyway it now looks like benton will make his grades. this statement by randle's father has everyon freaking out.

Adrian and I was in Rupp last night to watch that shit.

joe on Wednesday, February 04, 2009 at 9:32 AM

I didn't watch the game, seriously, what happened?

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 04, 2009 at 9:46 AM

UK scores 6 points in the first 10 minutes of the game. Didn't look like anybody wanted to be on the floor. MSU surrounds Patterson with 3 guys every time he touches, Meeks running around perimeter with no screens being set to free him up. When they do seldomly set a screen, it is a weak one and his defender goes over top and another defender hedges out on the screen.

Three other guys open that refuse to shoot or when they do shoot they can't hit shit.

UK doesn't have a guy that can dribble the fuckign basketball without it going of their leg with a 99% success rate.

Coach Gillispie is way to fucking stubborn to do anything at all. He sits there and forces his team to play his way, which is man to man for 40 minutes. The problem is they don't fight over top the screen, which gives perimeter players 4 feet to shoot the fucking ball. MSU hits 14-29 from 3 point land because they had open daylight all day long. This ass clown will not or cannot make an ingame adjustment to save his life.

Gillispie plays players that are significantly limited (Harris and Porter) instead of letting the horses play (Liggins and Miller) and let them play through their mistakes. Harris got rejected by the rim, has no dribble, can't shoot and I believe is in 6 months of darkness right now being from Alaska. Porter, well he is Porter...he is what he is....which is a non-shooting non-scoring non dribbling guard. I won't even call him a lead or point guard because at best he is a third string ass clown that should be a victory cigar.

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 04, 2009 at 9:47 AM

Also, teams spread UK out defensively and are much quicker than our taller guys so they dribble penetrate and break down the defense all game long.

Phil on Wednesday, February 04, 2009 at 10:21 AM

i bet even the whores at the marriot wouldn't fuck a drunk billy g in the parking lot last night after that performance.

douglas on Wednesday, February 04, 2009 at 10:22 AM

bottom line, it's turnovers, they need a fucking point guard desperately, porter is completely incompetent and liggins is a freshman that's shown potential at times, but still needs to develop. basically, liggins needs to be in the game to get better as much as possible, and they need to continue to develop miller, who's getting better, but slowly. harris is a walking injury so he can't be relied upon. the game plan for any team is shut down meeks and patterson and let anyone else shoot the ball. UK players heard stansbury (MSU's coach) telling his players whenever someone else had the ball to "back off", which means let them hold the ball until they turn it over or let them shoot. and then when patterson and meeks get the ball they try to do too much so they turn it over too b/c the rest of the team sucks.

gillispie always says practice determines PT, and I don't know what's happening in practice, but liggins needs to get as much PT as possible to get him developed before the tourney. without a PG, or with Porter running the point, they don't have a prayer. i think their hot start in the conference gave everyone the idea they were better than they were, which I never thought. I've always said next year is the year that really counts. gillispie still doesn't have the guns to make a serious run this year, he will next year. and the more games like this, then patterson and meeks will definitely be back next year, barring some unseen miracle in the tournament, they're not going pro

joe on Wednesday, February 04, 2009 at 10:27 AM

I wish Rick would go with the practice determines playing time because some times I wish earl would play less.

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 04, 2009 at 10:57 AM

Douglas - next year isn't going to be anything, if we don't get a fucking PG and another shooter that can make the defense pay for overplaying on Meeks and Patterson.

I see dont' see it for 2 more years, before we can even think of making it to the sweet 16. How fucking sad is that. Oh how the mighty has fallen and can't get back up.

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 04, 2009 at 11:05 AM

Eric Berry is a freaking stud, no doubt. Woudl love to have a kid like that on my roster.

follow up on the receiver situation: benton signed with auburn. i have no idea what that means for randle.

douglas on Wednesday, February 04, 2009 at 11:21 AM

what i meant more about next year is gillispie's feet will be held to the fire a little more next year. plus next year liggins will have another year of maturity, huge for a point guard, there's one of the top freshman classes coming in, i'm not saying championship material next year or anything, but next year is when shit's supposed to be getting back to normal

RIVALS Signing Day Surprises

5. Justin Green

Schools in the mix: Kentucky, Ohio State and Illinois
School he chose: Illinois
Buzz: Early on in the recruiting process, Green – from Louisville (Ky.) Male – gave a commitment to Kentucky. As the Rivals100 prospect's recruitment picked up, more programs came calling. Green soon switched his commitment to Ohio State. Green looked solid as an Ohio State commit until the last days of his recruitment, and a late push by Kentucky cast some doubt. Then, Signing Day, Green didn't sign with Ohio State or Kentucky but rather with Illinois, a school that emerged out of nowhere to get his signature.

Bigworm on Thursday, February 05, 2009 at 9:45 AM

Yeah there was some talk about Green on the UK board. Most think it has to do with Bob Redman. I don't think UK has had a kid from Male in a long time, if ever. So makes me wonder if UK pissed ole Bob off somewhere down the line.

Jay - care to ask your uncle what he thinks of the UK football program?

Bigworm on Thursday, February 05, 2009 at 9:47 AM

And by some talk, I mean UK felt they had him in the bag and then Illinois came out of no where. I am guessing Illinois offered him a chance to play offense, but have a hard time believing Rich Brooks wouldn't give him a shot at offense because he gives everybody a shot at playing any position they want, before they get settled in somewhere.

Most really think Redman had something to do with it, but I have no clue if he did or not.

Funny thing is a small group of us have been running with the Terry Tate theme for months because I was forearm shivered in the hallway by a fat girl trying to walk down the hallway so I starting referring to her as terry tate office linebacker. We put up pictures of terry tate and watched the clips on the internet. So I don't know if management found out our obsession with terry tate and then didn't know the back story or someone watched an old super bowl commercial show?

UGA #8
USC #12
AUB #15
Ole Miss #16
Miss. State #18
Arkansas #19
Florida #21
UT #22
UK #26
Vandy #74

Notes: UGA and Florida only had 18 and 16 commits, respectively. UGA has the highest average star rating commit at 3.89 stars, UF second in 3.81 stars. To compare LSU average is 3.80 stars and Bama is 3.67 stars. UK average star ranking 2.70.

Big East
West Va #23
USF #25
Pitt #29
Rutgers #30
Cinci #53
UofL #64
UCONN #71

For the first time, Bellarmine University will induct an entire team into its Athletics Hall of Fame -- the 1993-94 women's basketball team.

Other inductees in the hall's class of 2009: Jennifer Scheerer Alessandro (cross country and track, 1998-2002) and Paul Burke (baseball, 1996-98)

Is Wellemeyer in yet or is he not allowed because he didn't graduate?

Barry on Thursday, February 05, 2009 at 12:17 PM

those rankings may still not be complete. For example lsu actually only has 24 signees not 25. The one they are counting is likely janzen jackson(CB), who changed his mind and went with UT this morning. but the pattern and your point still likely hold true.

Wrecking Crew on Thursday, February 05, 2009 at 1:53 PM

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (Feb. 5, 2009) – Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive has issued a public reprimand to University of Tennessee head football coach Lane Kiffin for his public comments made earlier today.



"Coach Kiffin has violated the Southeastern Conference Code of Ethics," Slive said. "SEC Bylaw 10.5.1 clearly states that coaches and administrators shall refrain from directed public criticism of other member institutions, their staffs or players.”



“The phone call to which Coach Kiffin referred to in his public comments is not a violation of SEC or NCAA rules. We expect our coaches to have an understanding and knowledge of conference and NCAA rules.”

joe on Friday, February 06, 2009 at 2:24 PM

I was the only one that brought my bingo card. The other 2 bailed.

The meeting was about training for another team at work and basically long term goals of the office. I created my bingo on my own rant of, "Oppurtunities around here seem 'few and far between'. I 'believe in myself' that I can do whatever I want. I want to know what I have to do to get to the next level and you all want what is best for the office. when I 'step back and look at all the facts' I am getting trained for another team while still being held accountable for my own work on my team. If you redistribute work to other employees I am still held accountable for the work even though someone else did it in the long run. I am expected to take your decision 'make the best of it' and say 'that's life'."

the bingo spaces are in the single quotes. It was a diagonal bingo from top left to bottom right.

Phil on Friday, February 06, 2009 at 2:29 PM

i was out with cheryl's buddies Christina and Lee last night and we closed down o'shea's. at about 3:30 in the morning this guy just walks up to Lee and says "Hi, my name is Marty Popham. I play for the Indians. I went 17-1 with a 2.27 ERA last year in college" That was his move. Her response? "Congratulations, Marty. That's very good for you." And he just kinda stood there and then said "look me up on facebook. Marty PopHAM - M A R T Y P O P H A M."

It was an impress display of desperation. I was quite impressed.

I also asked him when he graduated high school but he was a youngin. I doubt if Douglas had a chance to take him yard.

douglas on Sunday, February 08, 2009 at 11:59 AM

i'd never heard of him, and now i know why, he had to have sucked in high school, or at least not have been that good, he must have really blossomed in college. He went to union college, and basically anyone's regtarded little brother can play there, so must've hit a major growth spurt or used a lot of 'roids in college and gotten better

douglas on Sunday, February 08, 2009 at 12:02 PM

i did like how he automatically gave himself a major promotion after being drafted. he went from being drafted to being in the show in less than a year, and how he completely skipped the minors and everything, that's solid desperation, kudos for the effort though

Phil on Sunday, February 08, 2009 at 11:17 PM

genius might be a strong word, but the food joke at the end definitely got a chuckle out of me.

My problem with it is that they named the food item after the sequence in which they were eating them. It's not really a recipe or anything at that point. It'd be like me saying "I have a top secret recipe that is better than KFC's chicken!" and my recipe is "Step 1) Buy a breast and wing meal from KFC. 2) Eat wing first 3) Then eat the breast"

So I am listening to 98.9 on the way in this morning and they are interviewing Katy Perry at the Grammy's last night. Pretty funny chick if you ask me, especially when she started making fun of Barbara Walters.

how exactly does barbara walters get brought up at the grammys?

douglas on Monday, February 09, 2009 at 8:12 AM

they still have the grammys in the first place? are those still relevant

Bigworm on Monday, February 09, 2009 at 8:52 AM

98.9 was interviewing Katy Perry before the Grammy's and somehow Katie Couric gets brought up, Katy Perry mentions that Barbara Walter's would be even worse and breifly immitates her. I chuckled.

1226

Jerome on Monday, February 09, 2009 at 9:31 AM

Maybe Phil can make it so when you hit 10,000, all posts will stop for a while and you can take a victory lap around the stadium to shake the hands of all the fans whose love and support were what really made this milestone possible. Then you can continue to say how never-in-a-million years you could have even dreamed of such an accomplishment and how you are humbled by the enormity of it all. You'll say how you couldn't have done this without your wife who has gotten you through these past several weeks by just being there for you. And then you'll conclude with, "AJ, daddy's bringing this home for you, little man!"

Here is an excerpt from Kragthorpe about Brohm's departure.

"I will call every single play," he said. "After the Kentucky game I felt like I needed to get more involved in the play calling."

So he runs Brohm out and decided his play calling sucked after the first game. Well I am no offensive genius but I think you suck at a head coach K.

Phil on Monday, February 09, 2009 at 3:16 PM

i think next year he'll realized he's replaced all the head coaches and need something else to replace. So the Cards will be playing all their home games on Trinity's Harry Jansing Field at Marshall Stadium.

I haven't taken anything today but I feel loopy like I drank an entire bottle of day quil and can't walk a straight line.

Joe - Are Laura's parents staying with you what brought them to town?

joe on Monday, February 09, 2009 at 3:47 PM

Nope, they were picking her up on their way to Missouri to visit family and we pulled off the lie that she isn't living there. I am animal sitting so they came over Saturday to take us out to dinner and she was over because of the animals and Sunday when she got off work she just came over after work since Norton Suburban is so close to me and her parents were staying at the Breckinridge Inn on Breckinridge lane so it was an easy meeting place to pick her up before heading to Missouri.

Her brother is in the traditional natty sci relationship, 29, dating the same girl going on 8+ years and moved in with his girlfriend. They didn't take to kindly to that and she figured it was for the better to just lie for a while. Mostly her dad would be worked up about the whole Jesus thing and have a problem.

the longer version is much too long for this site and coming from her much more complicated than what i'm sure the real story is. when she starts in about it i just nod in agreement and don't stir the pot, we get along much better that way.

as for katie, she has a son, david, she was engaged but not anymore, and she's working full-time at williams-sonoma (same job as high school and college) until she "starts her business." fyi, shannon and kaelyn are david's main babysitters b/c she's home during the day i'm sure prepping to start law school again. i usually run into luke (katie's babydaddy) when he's picking up david after work about the same time i'm picking up kaelyn

douglas on Monday, February 09, 2009 at 4:25 PM

she finished two semesters, it's three years total, including summers, so i don't know how many semesters total that is, i don't feel like doing the math. apparently shannon decided it was better to spend time with kaelyn when she's a toddler and now in pre-k than when she's in elementary school

Michelle and I are throwing around the idea about holding an engagement party/festival at a cabin in Gatlinburg.

Rough idea would be to get a cabin that sleeps 20 or so and just have a party Friday thru Sunday (maybe a keg). Probably in early March while rates are still cheap.

I recall someone posted a link to a sweet cabin setup a while back, but I haven't found it.

Considering the cabin trip has been tossed about for years now, I figured this would be a good opportunity - considering it took years for the engagement thing to come to fruition.

Any feedback?

http://www.barstoolsports.com/artic...it_rookie/3087/

8. ginger kid (or possibly remnants of chicken pox)
7. exotic (stole from barstool, she is foreign but you can't tell where from. barstool calls a different one exotic because she is foreign but she is listed from louisiana)
6. Crash (She is a 24 year old rookie? Oldest of the bunch. In the bigs they say they all have long legs and brains)
5. unibrow (seriously nice rack but some things just stand out that you can't overlook, in SI I have set higher standards)
4. frog (french canadian from montreal can't be good if she was the gap tooth I would hope it was a hockey fight)
3. the blonde girl (just learned to spell her name)
2. crazy eyes (it burns my soul)
1. gap tooth (I guess Chaucer is right about those gap toothed whores. She nailed a few people to get in this mag. just quit smiling)

Wrecking Crew on Tuesday, February 10, 2009 at 7:32 PM

SI is still a master of the side boob, though.

Brock, Joanna and I are interested. Unfortuantely we are planning a vacation 3/22-3/27, so time off and cost will be our biggest issues. Since I will be off for those 2 weekends in March (3/21,22 and 3/28,29), I will probably have to round the first two (3/14,15 and 3/7,8). We may be able to go down on 3/28 and come back 3/29, but that will depend on how much things cost and when you plan on being there. I would have a better chance of doing it in April when I should only be working one weekend a month at the most.

Rupp was freaking rockin' last night and I have never heard it so loud as to when Calathes stepped to the line for his last 3 free throws.

douglas on Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at 8:45 AM

no, i didn't have tickets for last night's game, my next game i think is the TN game, which should be a good one too. I'm glad they won, and i said to sarah that place would've been awesome to be in last night, but they fucking sucked. Meeks nut up and hit that 3, but they have another 20+ turnovers, probably 15 or so that were unforced. Porter had some clutch 3's, but the underrated player of the game was probably galloway, and I think he's gonna' start seeing more minutes at the point. he was pushing the game at a much faster pace when he was in, and he wasn't making the decisions a 12-year old would make like Liggins was. Not to mention that fucking dunk he had was unreal, I wish I was there for that

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at 9:10 AM

Adrian and I had a pretty good view of that dunk, as their seats are upper level right behind the goal he threw down on.

Galloway had a pretty solid line, 6 points, 8 rebounds, 9 assists.

joe on Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at 9:18 AM

I tried watching the game but the first 10 minutes were painful to watch so I turned it off. In the words of the groundskeeper in Major League, "their still shitty."

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at 9:20 AM

yeah Joe - first 10 minutes = bad....but the second half was pretty darn good. Lots of momentum swings and of course Patterson goes down with 9 minutes lefts and UK still wins.

I think they are in section 240 row T seats 24 and 25. My boss has seats in section 213 row P about 5 seats off midcourt line. Those seats are awesome and I get them from time to time.

douglas on Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at 9:23 AM

dude, my seats are sec. 240, row S, 15/16

Bigworm on Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at 9:28 AM

Alan and Adrian have season tickets to I get to use one of their seats when one can't make it. It's a pretty nice gig without having to pay for any seats myself.

I'm gonna try and make the next one poster sized. Not sure if that'll be possible though

joe on Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at 2:06 PM

It's raining sideways.

On the topic of the name Cheryl, The SI swimsuit issue did make reference to that classic picture of Cheryl Tiegs. Did i spell Cheryl Tiegs right? I am probably butchering that last name, names aren't important but it is a nice pic.

mowgli on Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at 2:15 PM

I am gone for a conference the last weekend of March and I have grants due first week of April, so we might shoot for like the weekend of April 10-12, but we are flexible for another April weekend.

I'll keep everyone posted.

Not that I'm picky because that cabin looked pretty badass, but what about something closer to downtown Gatlinburg so there may be less driving if we ventured out of the cabin.

Just had an interesting work experience. I am still kind of sick and this girl at work decided to give me some mucinex. She pulls out a baggie that has 2 different pills in it. She says one is mucinex and one is penicillin. I am allergic to penecillin. She couldn't remember which pill was which. I think she is trying to kill me.

Jerome on Thursday, February 12, 2009 at 9:04 AM

Mucinex is the one on the left

Brock on Thursday, February 12, 2009 at 9:26 AM

Of course, the cabin will depend on the rough estimate of how many go. Don't need to sleep 22 if we only have 12, which is roughly those I know who are interested. So your 14-sleeper is a good choice. Just noticed that the nightly rate for the smaller size was the same for the bigger ones not as close.

Aside from the fact Terry Meiners is an assclown, why does Rick Pitino hate him so much?

It's not like he would even care if he banged his wife, unless he was banging his mistress?

Phil on Friday, February 13, 2009 at 3:15 PM

I asked Bob Valvano about it. Rick Pitino just thinks it is funny to fuck with Terry Meiners.

douglas on Friday, February 13, 2009 at 3:57 PM

why do you say he hates terry meiners?

Phil on Friday, February 13, 2009 at 4:02 PM

Rick Pitino will clown on Terry Meiners during halftime interviews. For example, during one of the games Terry asked Rick Pitino why Earl Clark didn't start. Rick Pitino responded "Come on Terry, you're too smart of a guy to ask a question like that. The question you should have asked is why hasn't Preston Knowles played yet. Preston hurt his knee yesterday at practice so we're holding him out, but he'll be fine."

I assume Wes brought it up because Billy G's halftime attacks on Jeanine have made him kinda a joke on the internet of late (check out deadspin for some funny), so I assume there is some "RICK PITINO DOES IT TOO!" wharrgarbl going around.

douglas on Friday, February 13, 2009 at 4:07 PM

gillispie actually called jeannine edwards after the day after he told her she asked a stupid question and apologized, he said he didn't mean any disrespect by it, supposed to be a joke, didn't come off that way. in the game the other day he couldn't hear her, i was kinda hoping he'd say something else that would've been funny but he didn't

Are there any? I thought Carrelton was the closest.

Phil on Tuesday, February 17, 2009 at 1:46 PM

cheryl found one out on preston.

the dude was impressed at how many i knew of. i think kfc won't advertise them because it is unfair to other franchises, so the shit is like top secret info or something.

Phil on Tuesday, February 17, 2009 at 3:01 PM

he would be doing god's work.

Cheryl had the info on the other KFC. It was either out preston hwky or out on outer loop. I think it was out near on the of the Korts, but I'm not totally sure.

Phil on Wednesday, February 18, 2009 at 3:38 PM

I think Louisville should give Mike Leech 25 million dollars for 10 years to be the offensive coordinator / football genius.

Let him have free reign to do whatever he wants with his team on offense, let him pick his offensive recruits, etc. Don't make him do stupid interviews or any of the other crap he doesn't want to do. Just let him fuck around with weird formations and shit in his mom's basement or whatever, and pay him head coaching money to do it.

I'm a genius.

joe on Wednesday, February 18, 2009 at 3:41 PM

that would be well worth it. Basically we would have the team of old that scores eleventy billion points but also gives up that much.

So twice this week my dad has randomly come over to watch basketball. That doesn’t bother me, I understand if he wants to watch a game he would prefer watching it on a larger TV in HD. The weird thing is he just hangs out and makes himself at home. He raids my fridge and uses the laptop. Big Monday he came over for the Uconn-Pitt game and raided the fridge making himself turkey sandwiches and last night for the UL game he randomly fixes himself a bag of popcorn. It is just very strange. Before long I think he may be the random guy on the couch.

Brock on Friday, February 20, 2009 at 3:46 PM

I watched "We Are Marshall" last night.

The movie inspired me to take a look at the history of West Virginia and Marshall football since they have a scene where they go to Bobby Bowden (WVU coach at the time) and discuss offenses. They point out the Southern Conference trophy. Its always interesting to see how the college football conferences have been aligned in the past. Like WV and Pitt were in the A-10.

Anyway, they make this point in the movie that the only way to honor the dead team is to WIN. The loss to open the season sets off this dramatic tension in the film. 1 F'n loss. Ok, I understand football fans are nuts when it comes to carrying on tradition. BUT....

I looked up the history of Marshall football. The season before (1969) the crash in 1970, Marshall went 0-28-1. WTF?!

Ok, so you are pissed as a fan b/c the new team made of all freshman loses their first game and your beloved team before went a whole season without winning? Hollywood may have missed the underlying point a little when developing that plot.

Overall, I did like the movie. Especially since the finish with the win over Xavier. Screw you XU.

douglas on Friday, February 20, 2009 at 3:56 PM

that's a good movie, but they changed one thing. you know matthew fox's character, the guy that became the asst. coach that was supposed to be on the flight...in the movie he gives up his seat at the last second so the other coach can go see his granddaughter, in real life he had already scheduled the recruiting trip and was never supposed to be on the plane. the part though where he saw his picture in the paper as one of the people that died on the plane, that's true

douglas on Friday, February 20, 2009 at 3:58 PM

also, apparently every year the football team kicks off the season with a trip to the cemetary where the memorial for the victims is. i did the same thing you did, i checked out wikipedia for the real story after i saw the movie, i do that like every time i see a movie based on a true story

so i left the bar fri. night about 11 and there was a wager on joe puking, and the over/under was 45 mins...did you hold out until midnight to start your puking or did you start at the bar?

joe on Monday, February 23, 2009 at 9:24 AM

time was irrelevant to me on friday

Wrecking Crew on Monday, February 23, 2009 at 9:48 AM

So I'm assuming Joe was drunker than Cuban on his b-day? Is there another intern named Lauren or did Bmac make some surprise visit? And what's up with the blood stains, did someone beat you up, did you just fall on your drunk ass, or were you puking blood?

Cuban on Monday, February 23, 2009 at 9:55 AM

Worm, I did not. Besides I want to get to know her romantically.. Know her soul.

Chris.. I can't answer who was drunker because I was fairly drunk myself. I also learned that Tequila and Taco Bell don't mix well. Dam Mexicans.

Bigworm on Monday, February 23, 2009 at 10:06 AM

Chris another intern named Lauren, she is an intern at E&Y and funny thing was she was telling Abby about going out with some guys Friday night to celebrate some guys bday who works at BKD auditing some healthcare clients.

Abby said it was pretty funny hearing them talk especially after they realized Abby knows this guy named Joe and Mark.

Phil on Monday, February 23, 2009 at 10:16 AM

When I left (2:00ish) Joe was easily the most drunk of the night. Cuban was sober enough to realize he was getting obliterated and called himself a 20 and had some water which may have saved him. I'll give the "totally alchohol consumed" trophy to Cuban, the "total number of brain cells killed" trophy to Joe.

The wager Douglas was talking about was if Joe was gonna puke at 11:45 or at 12:15. After 12:15 Joe had at least 3 more shots and 3 more bourbon and cokes or whatever the hell he ordered.

Phil on Monday, February 23, 2009 at 10:19 AM

My favorite part of the ghetto workout is when the guy says "Don't try this at home kids - you'll dislocate aaaaall your shit!"

joe on Monday, February 23, 2009 at 10:19 AM

The blood is a mystery. I have a cut across 3 fingers on my hand. The guy I work with who I was drinking with just looked at me laughed and then said the classic drunk line "what did we do?"

douglas on Monday, February 23, 2009 at 10:23 AM

phil laura and i were talking about the wager when joe stumbled over and said something incoherent, at which point i called the under

Back on Lance Armstrong, apparently after that tour, Jan Ullrich sunk into a deep depression because he focused everything he had on winning the tour and beating LA but in the end he still lost.

I think Brent was the one who stole lance armstrong's bike.

douglas on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 at 2:10 PM

not too long ago, one of the mortgage guys that works upstairs from me was taking a dump in the stall next to mine, i'm just chillin reading the paper like i do every day twice a day, and i hear this guy's cell phone ring, and he's on the phone shutting down a deal on the shitter. i should've just started flushing my toilet non-stop as i look back on it

Phil on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 at 2:20 PM

some dude was on the phone in the wick's bathroom talking on the phone with his girlfriend telling her some story about how he's in his car or something. Well I'm peeing next to him, so typically I wouldn't flush but they have the autoflush.

I ain't gonna stand there and wait for him to finish. So I just took a step back and he was like "noooooooooooooooooooooo"

Good times.

Brock on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 at 2:32 PM

So the consensus seems to be that talking on the phone while pissing or taking a dump is over the line. Any exceptions or modifications to this rule?

Food for thought.

There was a guy here who embezzled a few million dollars that when he was employed here would take a picture of his turds and text them to people. That was comical.

Phil on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 at 2:56 PM

i can think of two reasons you can do this:

1) you have been peeing for 2 minutes straight and have decided to call for medical help. also maybe if you shit all over yourself and need to call in for back up clothes or something.
2) you want to freak someone out in the stall next to you, but i think still at that point you are a sick fuck so i'm not sure if you are going against the rule but rather using it as a for of an act antishitterdisestablishmentarianism

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/20...eeks/index.html

joe on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 at 4:16 PM

good player, lock for SEC player of the year, but I don't even see him finishing in the top 5 for player of the year or making the AP All American 1st team. Deserving of 1st team all american I could see it, but I don't forsee him getting it.

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 at 4:24 PM

I agree Joe. If Kentucky was playing well and currently ranked in the top 20 I think he'd have a legit shot. Griffin is one hell of a player though, maybe Meeks can use this as a springboard for next year.

douglas on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 at 4:34 PM

he'll be top 5 in the voting, every time i hear any POY convo, he's always in it, and his numbers stack up with anyone's, especially when you look at shooting % and realize half his shots are 3's. he won't win it though, UK's too low-profile this year unless they win out and win the SEC tourney and drops some more unbelievable games, even then still doubtful, too much media hype for griffin all year long, as opposed to jodie not getting any til halfway thru year. i'm more convinced than ever he's staying for sure, he'll be the leader on a much improved UK team with a supporting cast that doesn't blow ass chunks and he'll be a preseason ap all american lock. his draft status and the amount of $ he'd make in the draft would increase significantly

Bigworm on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 at 4:38 PM

The last nba draft thing I saw had him a second rounder, he'll be back for sure if that holds true.

Brent on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 at 8:35 PM

My DirectTV has only gone out once during the windstorm/hurricane and it was only for a half hour, the only time it doesn't record everything is when the sport program goes over the allotted programming time. E.g. UL basketball 8-10, goes in double overtime and UL loses by a buzzerbeater, game ends at 10:30 well unless you told your DVR to record 30 min past the scheduled time you would miss that section. If it something I really want to watch, I tell my DVR to record 5 or 10 min past just to be sure. I have DirectTV and I love it.

joe on Thursday, February 26, 2009 at 11:11 AM

Our manager sent this about on monthly team goals:

"Folks real close, let's not lose this one at the last minute by one point on the last shot. Let's pull it off and win this one!"

I responded with to "the team" with:

"Alright, folks, this is the last shot we got! We're gonna run the picket fence at 'em! Wendy, you're solo right! Ashleigh, Kendall should be open on the other side of that fence! Now, folks, don't get caught watchin' the paint dry! I just spoke to Coach and he isn't doing well. I don't wanna put any undue pressure on you guys, but Coach's last words were, win or I'll die. I haven't much else to say. We've played a great game...all of you. Great game. I guess we just can't expect to win ‘em all. I'm going to tell you something I've kept to myself for days -- you know what a tradition Coach Dennis is at the VA...And the last thing he said to me -- "Joe," he said -"sometime, when the team is up against it -- and the breaks are beating the boys -- tell them to go out there with all they got and win just one for the Gipper."

I think we will hit our team goals after that email.

Hey Joe - So Laura and I discussed getting your ass out to the never ever pickup hockey. Don't do it. It is faster paced than the saturday night league. Basically it's a never ever allstar game with a couple of stragglers mixed in.

Plus the numbers are low, so unless you are in great shape or just insane you'll die. We only had 5 forwards so I was taking 6 minute shifts with 1 minute breaks. It was like running pace in high school all over again.

Good times.

I'm looking for a good excuse to go do something active and blow my knee out completely because I am too big of a puss to actually go see a doctor while I can still walk decent on it.

Flag Football in the Rain!! Wait, that was your groin you messed up.

Joe - I may not be a genius but I think this might be your brother's specialty.

joe on Thursday, February 26, 2009 at 2:10 PM

He said it is a torn meniscus on the right knee and a PCL on the left knee. PCL tears are fine but meniscus needs an MRI to see if there is a tear. He told me to go to a doctor and get an MRI. I am too big of a puss. My meniscus isn't torn until an MRI shows it is so my knee is fine.

I remember flag football in the rain at Waterfront Park. Flood went to tackle me by grabbing one leg and my other leg slipped out from under me and my groin pulled nicely. I went out to run and stretch it out the next day to see how bad my groin was and that is when I i stepped on the edge of the grass and street and my knee buckled and my MCL went out. Other flag football injuries: hamstring (2).

'Old Milwaukee Book Of World Records' Confirms Title For Most Punches To Shoulder
http://www.theonion.com/content/new...e_book_of_world

MILWAUKEE—In a ceremony held Tuesday at Milwaukee City Hall, local resident Phillip Schneider, 27, was officially recognized by the Old Milwaukee Book Of World Records for being punched in the shoulder the most times in one hour. "We are proud to bestow this honor on Mr. Schneider after he withstood 29 strikes to the upper arm from his friend Mike, who is a pretty big guy," OMBWR committee chief Gerald Foster said of Schneider's feat, which beat the previous record by four punches. "Congratulations. Please accept this six-pack and a $15 gift certificate to Shopko." Schneider's achievement completes a busy week for the record compendium during which Laura Penipeno of Winnebago, WI was given the title of "World's Tallest Cashier" and Dave Pinski from New Berlin, WI was honored for having the world's coolest idea for a stunt.

So we have a spreadsheet that some douche at work came up with to manage our case load at work. If you can't manage your case load you should be fired. Instead we make everyone do extra work because a couple tards couldn't manage their work. The fucktard that created it made it very flawed so no one can use it and I am reprogramming a bunch of people's spreadsheets to make it user friendly and actually work. Who creates a spreadsheet that doesn't have scroll bars or freeze panes? Come on you can't see half the spread sheet or the columns we have to fill in. The guy is getting all kinds of praise but he doesn't work well with others so every one comes to me with questions on how to fix the spreadsheet and how to work it. This is retarded.

My inspirational email from this morning after management sent an email about the home stretch and winning:

Winning isn't everything, but the will to win is everything. To win down this home stretch we must will the claims home. Find your happy place, line up the putt and just tap it in, a little tap tap tapparoo. So when you see a claim say to it, "Why you don't you just go HOME? That's your HOME! Are you too good for your HOME?" and just tap it in.

We reached our goal and management sent out an email about time to change gears so I responded with this:

So it is time to change gears, not time to quit. Who would think of quitting? I heard someone say something about quitting so I called up my good buddy Lance Armstrong who knows something about changing gears on his bike and not quitting. He had this to say, "You know, once I was thinking about quitting when I was diagnosed with brain, lung and testicular cancer, all at the same time. But with the love and support of my friends and family, I got back on the bike and I won the Tour de France seven times in a row. But I'm sure you have a good reason to quit. So what are you dying from that's keeping you from working IDEV? Is it shame? Well, I guess if a person never quit when the going got tough, they wouldn't have anything to regret for the rest of their life. But good luck to you PreD. I'm sure this decision won't haunt you forever."

wes, i have no idea. temple is one of the best on the ball defenders i've seen in person. But as you said Meeks is not a spot up shooter i suspect meeks will get between 15 and 25. Thornton will get his 20-30. If Tas hits 25 its over.

Point - My Computer Totally Hates Me
By Vicki Helmholz

About a month ago, I got a new computer here at my reception desk at the dentist's office, and, boy, does that thing have it in for me! I am not kidding. When it sees me coming, I swear, it must be all like, "Oh, goody, here comes Vicki... time to go on the fritz!" I mean, my computer seriously hates me!

Now, I'm not exactly a computer person. I've never been what you'd call "user-friendly" or anything. But, for the life of me, I can't think of what I did to make my computer despise me so much! Whoever set it up, instead of putting in anti-virus software, must have accidentally put in anti-Vicki software!

I'm pretty sure Dr. Glickman bought it used, which would explain why it's so darn screwy. Whenever I try to type in insurance information for a new patient, the keys always get stuck. And whenever I try to get billing info for a current account, it totally doesn't want to let me into the program! I'll be waiting and waiting for, like, two minutes while it groans and grinds before, finally, the screen comes up. I'll be like, "Well, it's about time! What were you doing, surfing the Internet?"

And then there are the times when I'll want to print out an appointment reminder for a patient, and it simply won't do it for me. I'll be like, "Come onnnnnn! Are you trying to give me even more gray hairs than the seven I already have?" I am telling you, if there's a meaner computer out there in the world, I haven't met it yet!

Yup, that darn computer of mine is having a great big laugh at poor Vicki's expense. Lots of times, I'll be online, e-mailing a girlfriend or checking out the Dancing Hamsters if I need a pick-me-up, and the screen will just completely freeze. I had no idea computers could have "one of those days," but go figure! There's nothing I can do but unplug the thing, plug it back in, and start all over again.

Don't get me wrong; it's nice to have a new computer. But sometimes I think I'd rather go back to my sweet old little one than spend all day fighting with Mr. Moody here.

Phil on Monday, March 02, 2009 at 11:45 AM

Counter Point
By Dell Dimension 4100

Jesus Christ. Where should I start with this ignorant cow?

Actually, let's start with me. I am a brand-new, state-of-the-art Dell Dimension 4100, although, if all you had to go by was Vicki, you'd think my name was "Tweety Bird Sticker Receptacle." She's got me faggoted up like a 10-year-old girl's notebook.

Never mind that Dr. Glickman screwed up and bought this colossal ditz of a receptionist more computer than she could ever possibly need for record-keeping at a small dentist's office. (As if 40 unused gigs of hard drive are necessary to print Bobby Cloninger's mom a reminder that he's having that cavity filled on the 11th.) I'm powerful enough to monitor a cooling tower, but that's not even what I'm bitching about. I'd rather be owned by some acne-scarred teenage girl who only used me to write shitty poetry, so long as she actually read the manual that came with me. "Programmed in some anti-Vicki software." Holy shit, I want to kill her.

I feature a one-Gigahertz Pentium III processor and 128 megabytes of RAM. And this broad is whining that I'm not fast enough. A fucking Lamborghini isn't fast enough if you don't know how to shift, brainiac. And, believe it or not, you actually have to exit a program when you're done with it. Not just close the window. You actually have to select "Close" from the File menu. Or, better yet, Alt-F4 on your keyboard. I'm not gonna take the fall just because you left RealPlayer, AOL Instant Messager, Microsoft Word, ACT! 2000, WinAmp, McAfee First Aid, and the sound- and video-card software all open, and you're trying to open Excel! All that stuff costs RAM, dumbass. Maybe if you'd check the system tray once a month. The precise reason I'm "groaning and grinding so much" is that your stupid catalog of open programs is so taxing to my RAM that it forces me to open virtual memory, which is gonna be slow as hell no matter what computer you're on.

And, hey, Vicki, if you're having trouble with sticky keys, maybe you should think about not eating so goddamn many blueberry muffins while you're at your desk. (This Einstein seems to think the area beneath my keys is a gateway to an interdimensional netherworld where crumbs are magically whisked away, never to be seen again.)

Oh, and technical wizards who roamed the Earth generations ago came up with a magic fix-all for a printer that doesn't work: Turn the fucking thing on. That cable connecting me to the printer isn't a friggin' power cable. You actually need actual electricity to actually flow into the actual printer for it to actually work.

Now, as for system freezes: Maybe if you didn't install that gay-ass shareware inspirational-saying screensaver, you wouldn't have had so many software conflicts. But, with the damage already done there, you could at least hit Control-Alt-Delete and click "End Task" to close down a frozen program. That's Control and Alt and Delete, all at the same time! Isn't that fascinating?

Oh, before I forget: If I do freeze up, my reset button is located in the front. Press it and... voila! Do not unplug me and then plug me back in. Do you have any clue how much that fucking pisses me off? (Why did I even bother asking you that? Of course you don't. You're Vicki Helmholz, the world's dumbest dental-office receptionist.)

I don't even have time to go into this sad excuse for a computer user's misuse of the term "user-friendly." If there were a merciful God in Heaven, He would give me arms that I might strangle this bitchwad.

joe on Monday, March 02, 2009 at 12:21 PM

On top of it the fax machine and 2 printers crapped out. GO TEAM! My computer titles of Key User and MAPD Super User are all "volunteer" jobs meaning I was volunteered. So it isn't even really part of my job description to be in charge of software issues and 6 printers and 50 computers. This blows. I haven't gone 5 minutes without a phone call, email or a hey I got a problem you need to look at while I am washing my hands in the bathroom. It wouldn't be so bad if the people I work with weren't Fucktards and Bitchwads that could read or adjust to a simple computer change and had simple proper manners like waiting in line for help or not violating my space.

I received this is my email today, thought I'd share.

Guts or Balls...

There is a medical distinction. We've all heard about people having guts or balls, but do you really know the difference between them? In an effort to keep you informed, the definitions are listed below:

GUTS - Is arriving home late after a night out with the guys, being met by your wife with a broom, and having the guts to ask: ''Are you still cleaning, or are you flying somewhere?''

BALLS - Is coming home late after a night out with the guys, smelling of perfume and beer, lipstick on your collar, slapping your wife on the butt and having the balls to say: ''You're next, fatty.''

I hope this clears up any confusion on the definitions. Medically speaking, there is no difference in the outcome, since both ultimately result in death.

joe on Wednesday, March 04, 2009 at 10:38 AM

Does anybody agree with non seniors being recognized on senior day such as Earl Clark being recognized tonight because he is going pro? UL last did it with Fransisco Garcia. Also, Kevin Durant got his jersey retired after only playing 1 year in college. I don't like it.

douglas on Wednesday, March 04, 2009 at 11:22 AM

neither do i

Brent on Wednesday, March 04, 2009 at 12:43 PM

What about someone like Will Scott who has been at UofL 2-3 years but has not contributed as much as Earl Clark but he gets honored b/c he is a senior?

douglas on Wednesday, March 04, 2009 at 12:46 PM

will clark may not be a good player, but to play four years at a high level program requires you to seriously bust your ass for the university, and i think that's what senior night's about, honoring those that upheld their commitment to the program for all four years

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 04, 2009 at 12:47 PM

Durant got his jersey retired because he had a pretty prolific year for a freshman. Of course, the thing to remember is he got his jersey retired, not his number retired. There is a difference.

Personally, I like seniors being honored on senior days and not underclassman going to the draft. I think senior day shows appreciation for the hard work those young men put into the program and is a way for the fans and university to say thank you.

joe on Wednesday, March 04, 2009 at 12:50 PM

Durant was a recruiting tool. Retire his jersey to show that only if you come for a short period we will still hold you to the highest levels of our program and not be one and done with you.

Senior Day is all about the will scott's, chris current's and gianniny's. Let them have there last hurrah. Senior day for T-Will is just a thanks, enjoy the NBA. the nobodys are playing there last game ever.

Brent on Wednesday, March 04, 2009 at 1:00 PM

But isn't Will Scott a transfer? He didn't play for UofL all four years.

joe on Wednesday, March 04, 2009 at 1:52 PM

Will Scott transferred from Cornell because daddy was a dr for the knicks with pitino.

joe on Wednesday, March 04, 2009 at 2:26 PM

I look at leaving early vs. transferring in like this: When you retire from a place do you get a retirement party? Generally you do. You might not have started your working career there but in the long run it was the place for you. Leaving early is like all right this was a good stepping stone for me my time here is done I have better places to be. When those people move on to something better elsewhere they get a handshake and a good luck.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 8:30 AM

Gillispie. Hands down.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 8:31 AM

The only thing I can say is next year they will be much better in the middle with Orton and Pilgrim being in there....so Patterson will have help....if he stays.

joe on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 9:32 AM

I think T-Will had a bet before the game with someone that he would get a triple double on senior day. He easily could have gotten it. I blame Will Scott.

douglas on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 9:53 AM

gillispie's not going anywhere, unless there's just something huge we don't know about behind the scenes. quite frankly i blame last night's loss on jared carter, if he wasn't a stupid senior he wouldnt've had to start and completely ruin the rotation for the rest of the team

adrian on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 9:56 AM

i officially move into my new house tomorrow.

douglas on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 10:05 AM

i also blame dwight perry, if he was as good as his brother he could be relied upon in crunch time, however he sucks and just wastes a spot on the bench

joe on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 10:09 AM

Bigworm on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 10:42 AM

BCG will be back next year and he can show what he can do. I figure he'll get atleast 3 if not 4-5 years to show he can build a team. If not, he is our Matt Doherty, but the problem is that I don't see our Roy Williams if he isn't the guy.

joe on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 10:46 AM

You will get Pelphrey or Ford, not Donovan.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 10:48 AM

From what I have heard Ford will never be coach at UK as long as his daddy is around. Some bad blood between UK and Mr. Ford.

Pelphrey is having a tough time in Arky. He needs to fix that before he looks to coming home.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 10:51 AM

Sean Miller is a name worth mentioning though.

joe on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 10:52 AM

douglas on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 11:11 AM

he's doing well at UL and he's older now, he's too smart to leave there

joe on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 11:13 AM

He is in a position to stay at until he retires. It is nice that they are winning but he can do anything he wants at UL right now.

joe on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 11:27 AM

I'm going out on a limb and thinking C. Vivian Stringer, womens coach at Rutgers. UK would enjoy a black woman coaching their team. It would be just like Whoopi Goldberg coaching the Knicks in that crappy movie, what was it Eddie?

Bigworm on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 11:48 AM

This is the problem. The players don't like playing for BCG. I don't know how to fix it either than getting rid of players, or getting rid of the coach.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 11:54 AM

Actually I love OTS, best X's and O's guy in college basketball.

douglas on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 11:55 AM

also worst recruiter in college basketball, at least for a big time program

douglas on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 11:56 AM

but i agree on the x's and o's part

Bigworm on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 11:59 AM

Honestly, his responsibility isn't recruiting per se, but since he is the head coach he does have that responsibility fall on his shoulders.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 12:00 PM

What do you think would happen if UK and Minny play in the NIT at Rupp and OTS wins?

Brock on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 2:22 PM

I like how the rant over UK coaching was momentarily interrupted by Adrian's announcement and no one skipped a beat. So I guess technically, there wasn't an interruption. It was a bunch of UK fans rambling on at each othe with Adrian saying something under his breath in the corner.

Sorta similar to Wes' heated debate at my dissertation party in which Chris mumbled something under his breath to me before he ran up and screamed "UK sucks!" in Wes's face. I just don't see Adrian making that kind of move though.

Ignore me, there are fumes in the lab.

joe on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 2:34 PM

joe on Thursday, March 05, 2009 at 3:12 PM

I don't know what I got myself into. The union just came and questioned me. They want me to go to a meeting with them. In the near future I am being called in to testify in a union hearing on whether or not the new computer programs suck and possibly provide a presentation to management on how they suck. I hope I don't get black balled by management for working with the union against management. Maybe it will be nothing and I will be an innocent civilian bystander.

Bill introduced that would kill sports programs at schools where more than half of the students score below the 50th percentile. Now, I'm not great at math, but I believe that it'd be pretty close to mathematically impossible for all schools to do that. You'd need like 50 or 60 really, really shitty schools to fill up the bottom half and fall on the grenade for everyone else it seems.

Wes, here is how you would show your work for that problem last night:

4=2n
Log(4)=Log(2^n)
Since Logx^y=yLogx
Log (4)=nLog(2)
Therefore:
N= Log(4)/ Log(2)
N=2

*the carat means exponent

Bigworm on Friday, March 06, 2009 at 9:51 AM

Thanks Joe.

The good ole logx^y = y*logx is the important relationship that I was missing.

And of course my study guide book left the solution to the problem as

4 = 2^y
y = 2

well no shit, but how did you get that when it isn't obious is what i was thinking.

Which got me thinking, what if the problem was
8 = 5^y

So after not being able to recall my log skillz, I picked up the phone.
Again, thanks for the help Joe.

living tips from the guy who writes dilbert:

I forget where I read this tip, but I have used it many times with great success. It starts with the notion that most women change their hair all the time. You might not notice, but a woman is very aware of these small deviations in everything from highlights to length to fluffiness. I'm probably not using the official hairdresser terms, but you get the idea. It's different every day, at least according to the woman who owns the hair. To me, hair is either brown or it isn't, and you either have some or you don't. The rest is beneath my radar.

So here's the tip. When you see a woman who you haven't seen for a few weeks, you can pay her this compliment, and it works every time. Say, "You've done something with your hair. I like it."

The woman will feel flattered that you noticed anything beyond her hair's very existence and its degree of brownness. She might even wonder if you can be her new gay friend. But she will confirm that something is indeed different and offer many details about how it got there. You can use that time to think about your hobbies.

Drew Magary has a new column in Penthouse. I figure I'm the only one dumb enough to go there at work so here's the article for everyone else (two parts):

No one gets laid on St. Patrick’s Day. I certainly never have. It’s a sexual impossibility, on par with the fabled kneeling-pretzel position. But that’s okay. St. Paddy’s is not a day for trying to get laid. This is a day to celebrate your own slavish devotion to alcohol. It’s the one day of the year when, as a man, you can drop your constant, dogged pursuit of the other sex. Shouldn’t there be a day when we don’t have to be obsessive perverts, and can simply be belligerent alcoholics? I say yes.

With that in mind, allow me to set your St. Pat’s itinerary for this year. The nice thing is that it falls on a Tuesday. If you’re like me, you often reserve Tuesday as that one day of the week on which you don’t drink, just so you can fool yourself into thinking you have some semblance of control over your alcoholism. But you don’t have to worry about that the week of March 17! Fuck, yeah!

St. Patrick's Day

8:30 A.M. — Wake up.
8:40 A.M. — Proper Irish breakfast of blood sausages, eggs cooked in blood-sausage grease, Irish bacon (the prime rib of bacon), huge fucking bowl of Lucky Charms.
9:00 A.M. — Get dressed without showering, shaving, brushing teeth, clipping nails, or combing hair.
9:20 A.M. — Sprinkle sawdust all over apartment.
9:25 A.M. — Don only green shirt you have, which used to be a bright kelly green, but has faded over time to a sickly shade, like a zucchini gone bad.
9:30 A.M. — Fill hip flask with Jameson.
9:35 A.M. — Realize hip flask is insufficient. Place entire bottle of Jameson in inside pocket of sports coat.
10:05 A.M. — Spend morning at work filling out your NCAA Tournament bracket. Pick Duke to lose in the second round. Why? Because fuck Duke, that’s why.
12:30 P.M. — Sneak out with coworker to nearby Irish pub that isn’t really Irish and isn’t really a pub. I’m talking about you, Tír Na Nóg!
12:33 P.M. — Get first beer from sassy Irish barmaid. Place to lips. Oh, God, that tastes so good. If only you could just dive into the glass and let the frosty goodness seep into every orifice.
12:34 P.M. — Second beer.
12:35 P.M. — Third beer.
1:00 P.M. — Should you have a fourth beer at lunch? Fuck it. You’re having your fourth beer at lunch!
1:05 P.M. — Back at work. God, that fluorescent light. It hurts your brain. Who installed that in your office? What a dick.
3:00 P.M. — Sneak out of work. Pay tribute to Joyce’s Ulysses by masturbating on beach to nearby girl.
3:10 P.M. — Back to work.
5:00 P.M. — Leave work. Head straight back to bar.
5:05 P.M. — Say, how come no girls are out at the bar tonight? Because most women don’t even bother going out on St. Patrick’s Day. Instead, they bar their doors and watch a Colin Firth movie. Wise move, ladies.
5:30 P.M. — Wings, potato skins, onion rings. First boilermaker.
6:00 P.M. — Second boilermaker.
6:30 P.M. — Fucking A! Everything feels nice.
6:35 P.M. — Someone tries to put one of those stupid fucking plastic green bowler hats on you. Punch them in the face.
7:00 P.M. — Put $5 in jukebox. Select every song from the Pogues’ Rum Sodomy & the Lash. Make note to drink rum, commit sodomy, use lash later on.
7:05 P.M. — Why the fuck isn’t the juke playing your shit? Ask bartender. He gets mouthy. Punch him in the face. Get bounced.
8:30 P.M. — Arrive at next bar. Sit down at table just as the live band starts playing traditional Irish music at unreasonable volume. You know, the kind of music the immigrants in steerage played in the movie Titanic. Try to have conversation with friend. Fail.
10:05 P.M. — You’re extremely drunk now. Already? Yep. Oops. Maybe you should have paced yoursel… Whoo-hoo, Jäger bombs!

Phil on Friday, March 06, 2009 at 3:49 PM

~~~~~BLACK OUT~~~~~

10:10 P.M. — Get into argument with friend. Cry for no real reason. Make up despite not knowing what you originally started arguing about. Hug a little longer than is comfortable.
11:00 P.M. — Everyone in the bar sings “Danny Boy.” No one knows the damn lyrics except for one really loud, old asshole.
12:00 A.M. — Leave for new bar.
12:05 A.M. — Throw up in alleyway. Sit down in alleyway. Tell your friend to hang on, it’s okay, you just need to sit down for a second.
12:10 A.M. — Kinda fall asleep. Okay, really fall asleep.
12:15 A.M. — Wake up. Realize you have vomit on your sleeve. And your arm up a homeless man’s rectum. Remove arm.
12:30 A.M. — Cough violently.
12:55 A.M. — Arrive at new bar that’s waaay too crowded. One of those bars where 17-year-olds are drinking Bud Light out of plastic yard glasses. Punch at least one person wearing a Larry Bird jersey and Red Sox hat.
1:00 A.M. — Karaoke! “In your heeead, in your heeead, zo-ombie! Zo-ombie! Zo-ombie-ay-ay-ay!”
3:00 A.M. — Still at bar. Eyes glazed over. Staring ahead at fixed point on wall. Still drinking, even though you aren’t sure why. Your friend left a long time ago. You’re all alone. Vomit into lap.
3:05 A.M. — Get sent home in cab. Open window so as not to smell own self.
3:20 A.M. — In bed. God, so comfy. Who invented beds? Whoever it was, that asshole’s a saint.

7:15 - order first beer
7:30 - order second beer and third irish car bomb
8:00 pay bill - Joanna bails Chris thinks this is a great idea.
8:01 - 2:00 am visit bars, talk to strangers, drink beer
2:15 am - Joanna picks us up from bar, we take home our new friends, back to Burket's.

PITT has redeemed themselves. Netherlands is beating the Dominican Republic in the WBC. Hopefully the US doesn't lose to Canada again this year.

joe on Saturday, March 07, 2009 at 1:54 PM

the netherlands top 2 players are sidney ponson who is bestknown for assaulting an Aruban judge and Randall Simon best known for assaulting a sausage with a baseball bat in the sausage race in Milwaukee. Go Netherlands.

joe on Saturday, March 07, 2009 at 2:14 PM

UCONN loses to PITT. Netherlands pulled off the upset of Domican Republic. Now all I need is the US to beat Canada, Florida to beat UK and UL to beat West Virginia for the near perfect day.

Wes' post reminded me of this. So I had Mexican food for dinner with queso on everything, which means it was crazy dream time.

One of my dreams I me and some dude stumbled upon a bunch of money. So were hiding out in a gas station when some random yo decided to rob the place, and figured out we had a bunch of money. So not only were we on the lamb from johnny law, but we had the feds after us too trying to get the money back. All in all it would have made a good buddy movie.

My other dream would not. It was more like judgement night. So Joe, Wes, Chris and I were at some bar. We ran into some short politician (seriously) and Wes got in a fight with him, and Chris made us leave. Well we are in the parking lot and Wes noticed the politicians car and proceeded to set fire to it. Well the fire quickly spread to the building around it and we are high tailing it out of there. Well the politician guy recognized wes and wrote down the license plate, so wes threw it in reverse and tried to run the guy over.

That's all I remember.

Jay on Sunday, March 08, 2009 at 3:16 PM

That's crazy, Phil! Chris would never try to break up a fight!

Management saw one and asked about it and the person who had it sent them to me. I thought I was in trouble. Turns out management wants to make more of them in the Blue and Gold of Notre Dame and put them all over the office.

OMAHA, NE (AP) - Billionaire Warren Buffett says the economy has "fallen off a cliff" over the past six months and consumers have changed their habits in remarkable ways.

Buffett said Monday during a live appearance on CNBC that current economic turmoil has basically followed the worst-case scenario he envisioned.

Buffett said consumers have changed their habits to an extent that he hasn't seen before because of fear and confusion about the economy.

Buffett said he's seen the changes showing up in the results of Berkshire Hathaway Inc.'s subsidiaries. He says Berkshire's jewelry companies have suffered, but more people have been willing to switch to Geico to save money on car insurance.

The last line says it all.

Joe - Not to steal your thunder from Barstool sports but I found this to be quite funny, posted on 3/8

Yahoo - Boston Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester, who overcame cancer to become one of the best pitchers in the American League, has agreed to a five-year, $30 million contract extension with a $13 million team option in 2014, a source close to the team told Yahoo! Sports.


In all seriousness this may be the best signing in the history of baseball. Or at least the best signing since we signed Dustin Pedroia a couple months ago. 5 years for 30 million? Are you shitting me? This is an absolute steal. At what point does Brian Cashman hire somebody to remove the giant dildo from his ass that Theo keeps fucking him with? The Yankees have spent 423 million on CC Sabathia, AJ Burnett and Mark Teixeira this off season. We've spend 70 million on Jon Lester and Dustin Pedroia. How is that even possible? I mean I like our two guys more than any of their 3 guys and they cost 350 million less! It's mind boggling! I guess that's why we win championships though and they don't make the playoffs. They're idiots. We ain't. So do me a favor and Cue The Duckboats!

Pretty cool article explaining why Canada has more lefties than righties on their baseball team. Basically it comes down to the fact that everyone in canada plays hockey, so by the time they try baseball they transfer their hockey skills to bating.
http://vancouver.24hrs.ca/Sports/20...09/8686256.html

"The "hockey theory" goes like this: most hockey players shoot left; most Canadians play hockey before baseball; when hockey players play baseball, they transfer their hockey stick hand placement to a baseball bat, meaning the right hand is at the bottom, near the knob, and the left hand is on the top."

joe, when someone asks if you're single, the appropriate scumbag response is, "well, i just start dating someone" and leave it up to them to interpret whether that means you're single or not. of course you had to let your girlfriend move in so that makes it more difficult

So I was flipping channels and I realize the Big East Women's championship game was on last night, then I noticed the score was 50-24 UCONN over UofL near halftime. Turned back after several minutes and at the 10 minute mark in the second half UofL now had 26 points. Wow, and I thought UK couldn't score at times. I was even more shocked to see that UofL was ranked 5th in the country vs. #1 UCONN.

UCONN wins in a laugher 75-36.

Do you think UK's men team could beat them??

i guess they want you to develop claims like UK then

douglas on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 10:28 AM

you know, like very inconsistent and like you don't care

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 10:47 AM

Joe- how long till they realize you are mocking them?

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 10:48 AM

Maybe they took it down today because you can't develop claims like a champion everyday. You do work for the government you know.

joe on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 10:51 AM

Ahhh shit. They are hanging in every cubicle now. I am a difference maker with my motivational tactics. I don't know if they will every pick up on the sarcasm and the mockery.

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 11:01 AM

So when are you going to install something in the office that you slap everyday on your way to "develop claims like a champion"?

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 11:04 AM

Ideally that would be an interns ass, but I don't think that is going to work.

joe on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 11:15 AM

I will make a replica of Howard's Rock like at clemson.

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 12:34 PM

So who all is watching the games tomorrow and where at???

douglas on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 1:23 PM

i'll be at work with the radio on, probably looking for a live feed of UK's game online

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 1:48 PM

Well, there is one jackass that is predicting UK to win the SEC tourney, and he doesn't live in KY.

http://alabama.scout.com/a.z?s=14&a...=2&c=846138

douglas on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 1:52 PM

what's sad is that even the most irrational UK fans aren't expecting or predicting UK to win the SEC tourney, don't get me wrong, I'll be happy as hell if they do, but if they go down in the first game i wouldn't be at all surprised

joe on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 1:56 PM

I'll probably watch it at home

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 2:02 PM

Exactly my point Douglas, which is why he gets labelled a jackass for.

T-Will SI article

Phil on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 3:12 PM

so i got a ticket for having expired tags. anyone know where in the fuck i'm supposed to take it? the police officer said to take it to the courthouse but i'm apparently too stupid to figure this out

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 3:23 PM

Phil,

On the back of the ticket does it tell you where to pay the fine at?

I know you can pay them downtown, but you might be able to pay them at a local DMV place. I'd find a number and call, should be one on your ticket somewhere.

Phil on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 3:29 PM

Phone number is useless. I think the place I need to head down to is at 600 West Jefferson Street. God I hate going downtown.

joe on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 3:31 PM

it is one of the buildings across the street form the hall of justice. Pretty simple once you get in the building. It is connected with a pedway over the street.

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 3:33 PM

yep it is. you can find parking in a garage right across the street from it or if you get there early enough you can get good parking at a meter.

joe on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 3:33 PM

It is a very shady place so watch your back. Now that I think about it I haven't been there since I got my license 10 years ago and got a parking ticket at Seneca Park at cross country practice. Things might have changed since then.

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 3:35 PM

It's not that bad, the police department is right across the street. I'd have no problem walking around down there. Now after you cross over Roy Wilkins....all bets are off.

Brent on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 3:42 PM

Phil, the courthouse is open 24 hours now, so it's a piece of cake, just go after a night of drinking and you won't even need a ride home.

Brent on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 3:45 PM

Dude nails a 90 footer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHy7...player_embedded

douglas on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 4:15 PM

600 w jeff is the old courthouse, you walk in, go thru security, take a right and there's a bunch of windows you go to. any of the officers around will point you in the right direction. make sure you take proof that you updated your tags with you

Phil on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 4:46 PM

Damn, I wish I knew about the 24 hour thing. I rushed down there and grabbed the first spot I could. 50 minutes later I had a parking ticket because it was after 4:00. Jesus I'm an idiot.

Brock on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 6:35 PM

Both Ohio and Tennessee allow you to pay those tickets online. Therefore indicating that I have been ticketed in both states. Oops.

I guess it doesn't surprise me that KY doesn't have an online system yet. I think they were the last state to go to the digital vs. laminated license.

You may have run across my uncle. He's a retired cop who works at the courthouse laughing a people paying parking tickets.

Wrecking Crew on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 6:50 PM

Joe, that T-Will article makes him sound like an even bigger retard than I thought.

mowgli on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 11:16 PM

so I turn 30 in 45 minutes...This Blows!

You doing anything tomorrow??

mowgli on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 11:35 PM

probably not, my old ass is getting over the flu, I will probably venture out on saturday.

douglas on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 8:55 AM

happy b-day, getting old and sick is god's punishment for getting engaged, i've been feeling kinda shitty for about a week now. just a heads up jay, you're next.

in better news, there's some old lady coming to look at my condo for the third time tonight, so i better have a fucking contract on it tomorrow

douglas on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 8:56 AM

so i don't know if joaquin phoenix is pulling off the greatest prank ever, or he's just seriously gone off the deep end, but he jumped off stage and attacked a heckler, with video, kinda funny
http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepag...icle2315254.ece

joe on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 9:08 AM

Happy B-day Lynnie. So I went to the rehab place to get my home therapy this morning. It is the sports rehabilitation center which is with the louisville orthopedic clinic i went to on Tuesday. Lynnie, Brent, cheryl and all you other PT people, I hope you all better then this place. There was basically 1 person halfway working and a bunch of other people just standing around with 10 patients wanting help. My guy was the one halfway working and he disappeared for 20 minutes. He kept telling me I am not 20 anymore. He was better then the doctor. The old lady next to me injured her arm playing the violin. Rough injury.

joe on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 9:12 AM

I think just hate all people related to the medical field, or all people.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 9:18 AM

Douglas next year looks better already.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b20RrvmNaA8

and it looks like BCG will be sticking around.

douglas on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 9:39 AM

you should go to sarah's new clinic joe

douglas on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 9:40 AM

i can't get sound, what was he saying about billy? he'd be a fool to go now, his game's not ready, he doesn't have enough post moves and can't go to his left effectively enough yet. if s. carolina can block him about 6 times in one game, then i'm sure he'll find some pro players that can better that

douglas on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 9:42 AM

and he should come back, it'd look horrible for him to leave after two years from a PR standpoint, but next year there is absolutely zero excuses for a subpar year, meeks has been saying he'll be back as well, so with those two guys and a lot more depth, if they don't do some serious damage, kick his ass out

Bigworm on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 9:42 AM

He says that he loves Coach Gillispie and after talking with the coaches and his family he is coming back.

NBA will have additional players that help out inside. He is a one man wrecking crew here until help arrives...which is next year. With Pilgrim, Orton and Patterson...UK will have one of the best front lines in the country next year. Now if we can just find a fucking PG that won't turn the ball over.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 9:43 AM

PPat also made a comment that a lot of people were surprised and happy and that some people might think he is just saying this to keep everybody happy. But he fully intends to be back next year.

douglas on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 9:59 AM

that honestly makes me feel better, i really think that most of this year's problems stem from not having a PG and not having any help at all for meeks and pat. no, BG hasn't been much of one to adjust, but he said when he came here his teams play man to man, and he's stuck to that. i am worried about liggins a little bit, i've heard rumblings of him leaving, and him playing like 4 mins. total in the 3 or 4 games doesn't help, he can be a stud, hopefully he matures and stops making bonehead plays. either he or wall HAS to be the PG next year, or maybe even Vilarino, but not porter, he's just plain not good enough, and losing jasper hurt us far more than we realized until now. porter is that UK white boy that comes off the bench and can knock down some threes, but he's not a starting PG, he needs to be in the 2 spot

Bigworm on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 11:07 AM

I agree with that Douglas. Front line help is coming next year for Patterson in a big way. With Miller, Orton, Patterson, and Pilgrim we have quite a rotation there. Also, you can throw in Liggins and KG in that mix if you want to go small and run run run run your opponents to death.

Brent on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 1:15 PM

Joe,
If you want to come down on my lunch break, I'll treat you for free. Don't go anywhere and pay if you have friends that can hook you up.

Phil on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 1:30 PM

speaking of physical therapy, my hip just popped and it was GLORIOUS!

douglas on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 1:33 PM

anyone have a link (free) to the UK game?

Phil on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 1:33 PM

i get random e-mails that are meant for another phil scott sometimes. Here's the latest:
I think I pinned your mother down to Friday the 20th - Applebee’s in Brunswick - 6:30PM

Gift Ideas:

Gift cards. Starbucks, Kohls, JC Penny

How she’s hinting about wanting a replacement yard windmill!

Phil on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 1:34 PM

I'm tempted to reply "Crapplebee's? You think my mom is only worth Crapplebee's on her birthday? And really - a gift card? It's like you don't even know her."

Phil on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 1:36 PM

Of course, if they are talking about Brunswick, George applebees and kohls might be the pinnacle of high society.

ok, i'm talking to myself again

douglas on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 2:33 PM

granted i'm listening to radio so it's hard to tell, but it sounds like UK's playing their best game in about three months

douglas on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 2:33 PM

so far, knock on wood

Phil on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 2:48 PM

playing better than Kansas did at least.

joe on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 2:53 PM

If Oklahoma wins the Big 12 then they will get a 1 it sounds like and Kansas helped their cause a lot.

douglas on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 3:09 PM

so now i'm kinda pissed, b/c UK actually played quite well. Every time I think I'm out, they pull me back in! quit giving me fucking hope

douglas on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 3:10 PM

I might have to start calling this year's UK team my new unicorn, short for "cock tease that will get my hopes up and keep stringing me along only to disappoint me in the end"

Brock on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 3:32 PM

Happy birthday Lynnie. Shit. This means mine is coming soon. roar

I have to counter Douglas' claim of being punished. I haven't gotten sick despite my greatest efforts to stick my face in people's sneeze spray and smothering myself in soiled laundry. A sick day would be nice right about now.

Jay on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 5:23 PM

So, this is kind of a gay question, but you are you other queers planning on having weddings? I don't want to overlap

joe on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 5:33 PM

make it easy on all of us and just have one big ass wedding together.

mowgli on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 5:54 PM

4/10/10...I officially loose my balls.

mowgli on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 5:56 PM

it is going to be a deja vu of douglas' and sarah's death day.

mowgli on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 5:58 PM

meaning we are having the same church and reception places.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 9:53 PM

Awesome, that means the first wedding is like a trial run for all of us drunkards.

Brock on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 10:37 PM

We haven't set a date, found a place, or finalized guest lists. But I know that there will be bourbon, rum, and good times.

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 12:43 AM

The Big East is F'n awesome! This Syracuse-UCONN game is incredible.

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:03 AM

uconn better not score here. let's play two!

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:07 AM

yes! a sixth overtime. How many more people does Syracuse even have if Rautins and Harris pick another foul up? By my count that will put them at four players...

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:11 AM

Might be a moot point now.

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:12 AM

I would like to see them get to situation where they have to play with 4. What's the rule? Do you forfeit? Or do you have to actually play with 4?

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:14 AM

They still have 7 players. Even if those two foul out, they have 5 to play. UCONN actually looks more in trouble from a personnel standpoint.

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:15 AM

I think you can play with 3, then they make them forfeit. I think this thomas guy that just got a rebound makes it 7 "active players" for 'cuse.

But man does UConn look dead out there.

I just noticed that on ESPN's site that they only have 4 dudes listed as playing for UConn right now.

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:16 AM

Hell, Price and Adrien have kept UCONN in the game for the last 4 OT's. Those guys are dead.

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:17 AM

Needless to say, looks like Huggins vs. Pitino in the Big East final. Whoever wins this game needs Red Bull injected into them from dawn until gametime just to stand.

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:18 AM

If UConn starts fouling to keep it close it could get weird

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:19 AM

All those walk-ons have no fouls. They are used to being hack guinea pigs.

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:20 AM

fire away uconn! it ain't over

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:21 AM

I am just amazed that Flynn and Harris haven't missed a free throw. Unreal.

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:21 AM

Way to jinx him

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:22 AM

I lied. Harris missed one somewhere.

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:23 AM

Devendorf is so tired he's only gonna slap his bitch once tonight

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:23 AM

I think Syracuse win this game b/c they play zone. Its a lazy-man's defense. They had legs at the end.

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:24 AM

Such a good game, I don't want to slap that bitch Devendorf in the face.

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:26 AM

Damn game, I missed the rest of Modern Marvels. Well.. King Arthur is on.

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:26 AM

Only way it could be better is if they had Gus Johnson calling it.

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:28 AM

SportsCenter isn't making Devendorf look like less of a douche either. what a cocksucker

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:34 AM

Just look at the guy. I'm sure one of those tattoos says "Douche King"

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:37 AM

Bill Rafferty also set a record for how late he's stayed up in the past 40 years.

It's a shame Johnny Flynn plays with Devendorf. Syracuse would be a fun team to root for if it weren't for that assclown.

Chances if McDonnell being able to call the games tomorrow is gonna be slim to none.

Brent on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:41 AM

Fuck, Im pissed I missed this game, I've been up late watching American Idol...everybody may be getting married, but right now I feel the gayest of all.

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:42 AM

Dude, I second that. I'm not sure if that's gay or the fact you admitted it. Go do something manly.

Brent on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:43 AM

You're right, I'll go masturbate right now.

Brent on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:43 AM

Ok, Im back.

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:44 AM

Flex.

Brent, at home:

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:46 AM

I think I set a record for staying up late after a "ok, I'll just watch the end of the game and head to bed" too. And unlike these kids I've been up since 10am. I truly am a warrior.

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:47 AM

Shut up. I've been up since 7. I also did something that contributed to the cure for cancer. Or at least that's what I write in my progress reports.

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:48 AM

Man, I'm getting all assholish.

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:48 AM

And here we all just rolled our eyes when brock said "WHAT?! This bookmark folder labeled 'dude's kissing' isn't gay! It'll be useful to have this link handy, that's all."

Brent on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:49 AM

Cancer? Big deal, why don't you put your skills to use like find and destroy the male pattern baldness gene.

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:50 AM

Get it right, the folder is labeled: "Jerk-off footage"

Brent on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:51 AM

Come to think of it, the dude with the long hair kind of looks like you.

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:53 AM

Stop ducking the facts. You stayed up late to watch American Idol.

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:55 AM

I'll get on that baldness gene science after I figure out how to engineer Lynnie's first son to glow-in-the-dark with a tail.

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:56 AM

They really missed the mark with this "Doom" movie.

Brent on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:56 AM

Oh yeah, well the jerk store called and they ran out of you!

Brock on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 2:00 AM

Well, well... your head is the one with the shell on it.

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 8:18 AM

Damn, should have stayed awake and watched Idol.

Tiffany on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 8:42 AM

Jay,

Sorry, day behind buddy. Our date is floating around July 10th to July 12th 2010 but we are probably going out of the country. Im lazy and cheap; so dont worry about overlapping us.

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 9:11 AM

So it is an unwritten rule that if you get promoted you buy your old team you are leaving donuts. Me and two other people on my team got promoted so we pitched in and all got donuts today for our last day on our current team. Fucking vultures around here are swooping in from every where. I think I lost a finger when we brought the donuts first out.

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 9:21 AM

that's gotta be a record for most late night / early morning posts

jay, i'll follow up tiffany with the late notice, but we're 7/11/09. and yes, lynnie and cheryl are having the identical wedding as we are, but if we're just a trial run, it's a trial run with an open bar, so it better be a very drunk trial run

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 9:40 AM

I think the trial run is to show that lynnie needs to buy more booze for his wedding

Barry on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 9:49 AM

I hate how my bowels react to a lack of sleep. its 8:45 here and i've already pooped 3 times. stupid grading papers and stupid 6 overtime basketball game

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 10:03 AM

So a 40 year old woman I work with that I am not that comfortable with to make jokes made a joke on me and said, "is the stress of this job giving you gray hairs" so I responded "is the stress of this job making you put on weight?" She wasn't to happy.

Wrecking Crew on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 10:05 AM

Wow, Joe, that's impressive. I've never been prouder.

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 10:06 AM

that's solid joe

Wrecking Crew on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 10:09 AM

I'm sick of hearing about this Big East unbalanced schedule shit. Just becuse the Big East fucked up the schedule, doesn't mean UL should be punished. So far they've won everything they were supposed to win, and made it further than Pitt and Uconn. So fuck them. Personally, I think a #1 seed will make UL too arrogant, and then they will take an early exit.

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 10:10 AM

last projection i saw they were the #1 seed with memphis the #2. That's like the greatest bracket ever

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 10:14 AM

That would be nice to be in the Memphis State bracket.

Would it have been over the line to rub the woman's belly and ask when the baby is due?

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 10:15 AM

if u of l wins the big east championship, there's no way they can not get a #1 seed, the winner of both regular season and tournament not getting a #1 seed while uconn and pitt still possibly do, that would be shitty, and that's coming from a UK fan

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 10:30 AM

FUCK! I have a conference call from 1-2:30 today. I can't take a late lunch and watch the game as i was planning.

Bigworm on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 10:51 AM

If UofL doesn't win the Big East Tourney this year, they should just quit competing in it. The only two teams that could beat UofL are both out, and they were ND and UCONN.

WVU is my dark horse to win the Big East tourney.

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 10:56 AM

both WVU and Nova gave UL problems during the season. Nova was early and we are much better now. WVU gave us a run for our money both times. Syracuse has no shot today because their legs are going to fall off. I think either way we are just in better shape and are stronger defensively so in the long run we will grind it out either way.

Bigworm on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 10:58 AM

Barry - Be prepared to get ousted from the tourney, I have a feeling UK by 6 today.

Bigworm on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 11:00 AM

"Devendorf is so tired he's only gonna slap his bitch once tonight"

That is probably the best post of the morning.

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 11:00 AM

Bitch had it coming. I hope Devendorf ends up in prison as some dudes bitch.

Bigworm on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 11:01 AM

Yep, Devendorf is gonna be somebody's bitch.

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 11:03 AM

You know how in Bull Durham Crash teaches not to punch with your throwing hand; I wonder if he keeps in hoes in line with his shooting hand?

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 11:06 AM

wes, i don't want to jinx it but i have a good feeling as well

Bigworm on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 11:08 AM

Good point Joe. Devendorf doesn't look like he is that smart to think ahead so I bet he is slapping those hoes around with his shooting hand. He might keep her honest with an off hand slap every now and then.

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 11:13 AM

the typical rule in slapping bitches is to keep your pimp hand strong, and naturally the stronger pimp hand would probably be his shooting hand, so better to keep his hoes in line

Bigworm on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 11:21 AM

Joe - All I know is Devendorf wouldn't have a problem with having a meeting scheduled during a game he wanted to watch. As Douglas says, pimp hand is way strong.

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 11:25 AM

I think Louisville will get beat by Nova tonight. Classic Louisville let down game, Nova is gonna have the fury after the last game, plus it's always a tough match up. Not to mention Louisville sucks balls in the Garden

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 11:42 AM

this is from jason whitlock's latest column:

4. Just remembered another high-ranked team that will have a short stay in the tournament, Louisville.

The fifth-ranked Cardinals are the softest team in the Big East. Yeah, I know Rick Pitino's boys won the Big East regular-season crown. Total fluke. The Louisville squad is a low-character, soft bunch.

The Cardinals are the one team that Notre Dame's Luke Harangody absolutely punked with aggression. Notre Dame, a disappointment all season, smoked Louisville by 33 last month primarily because the Cardinals couldn't challenge Harangody in the paint.

UK is wearing the black unis today.

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 12:23 PM

I know Pitino said both times against ND that he planned to pretty much let Harangody get his 25 and 10 and then try and stop the rest of the squad. Worked 1 time.

They might be soft but they are well conditioned, pesky, deep and are 5th in the nation in blocked shots because they are long and athletic with tremondous upside potential.

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 12:33 PM

they are 5th in the nation because it's terrance jennings blocking time

Wrecking Crew on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 12:45 PM

Does UK have as much trouble playing in alternate jerseys as UL and ND? UL and ND typically suck when wearing black and green, respectively.

Whitlock is a fucking dumbass. UL may not be as tough as UConn or Pitt, but softest in the Big East is fucking retarded. As far as the big dance goes, for them to get deep into the tourney E5 and Samuels will have to play like they did last night, T Will will have to play lights out, and one of the guards will have to step it up. If one of the guards doesn't come up big, then they still might be able to do something if all 4 of them can shut down the opponents' guards.

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:04 PM

UK's only played in black once this year, and it was against a dirt shit team that they honored bill keightley, and they won big

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:06 PM

they could use some divine intervention from mr. wildcat today

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:20 PM

5 turnovers in 5 minutes, welcome back UK

Brent on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:53 PM

Well, can't be upset with the way UK has played in the first half.

Bigworm on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:55 PM

Defensively they played pretty darn good, holding LSU to 2 buckets in the last 7 and a half minutes. The problem is the offense is terrible.

How the fuck can you not realize you have 2 seconds on the shot clock on the throw in? If UK grabs the ball instead of knocking it around like a fucking seal they are tied at the half instead of down by 5.

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:57 PM

overall not a bad first half i guess, but should've been better, 9 turnovers vs. 10 in all of yesterday's game, that's the main difference, LSU capitalized on early turnovers. if they can turn that around, which they haven't done all year until yesterday, they'll have a good shot. this game is definitely winnable, i see tremendous upside potential in the 2nd half, but only if they work together as a team and really play like champions today, because after all, there's no "I" in "team"

Bigworm on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 1:59 PM

Spot on Douglas. I only hope Joe is developing claims like a champion today.

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 2:01 PM

the sad thing is, it's the same complaints every time, all year it's been shitty PG play and turnovers. if not for those two things, we'd have won at least 4-5 more games

Brent on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 2:10 PM

Its funny watching people interviews BG they look like they are on eggshells, he needs to change his attitude during interviews.

Brent on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 2:11 PM

Meeks is making some pretty impressive drives...damn, Patterson needs to make those.

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 2:23 PM

That was a painful hour and a half conference call.

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 2:33 PM

shit, i might sign up for the espn insider just to play with this next week:
http://insider.espn.go.com/ncb/tour...ctor%3fconf%3d1

Bigworm on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 2:34 PM

This team is pathetic. Fundamentally sound as 5th graders.

Porter just spot up for 7 seconds and nobody guarded him, caught the ball, shoot, and brick.

You fucking suck.

Bigworm on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 2:35 PM

Seriously, the game of basketball isn't this fucking hard.

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 2:35 PM

Porter should have stuck with football

Bigworm on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 2:37 PM

Barry - no offense man but I'll be happy as shit when Temple fucking leaves. Might as well tack on Tasmin Mitchell and Thornton to that mix as well.

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 2:40 PM

this ain't gonna happen

Bigworm on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 2:42 PM

Game over, LSU wins.

Congrats Barry!

I've never seen a team so bad at defending the 3 point shot or any shot at that.

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 2:59 PM

Holy shit, LSU scored a point

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 2:59 PM

anybody think they can get 9 in 90 seconds?

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 2:59 PM

i have faith with as shitty as LSU is playing.

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 3:01 PM

it's hard for me to tell cuz i'm listening on the radio

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 3:02 PM

on the bright side, the NIT provides UK a better opportunity to win more games and keep UNC from gaining on UK in the total wins column that much faster

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 3:05 PM

thats loser talk

Bigworm on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 3:06 PM

I can see it now. UK vs. Minn in 1st game at Memorial.

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 3:08 PM

i think going to the UK game at Memorial Coliseum would be kinda cool

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 3:10 PM

i'm well aware that it's loser talk, here's some more:

just wait until football season bitches!

Brent on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 3:15 PM

I heard someone say that UK will be playing at Freedom Hall for the NIT if they host a game.

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 3:18 PM

it'll be memorial...
some more loser talk: at least this helps lock patterson down another year

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 3:24 PM

Why not Rupp? Tractor Pull?

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 3:33 PM

high school basketball is better then watching UK play in the NIT

Bigworm on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 3:37 PM

Yeah, more excitement.

douglas on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 3:52 PM

fewer turnovers at least

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 3:56 PM

not more exciting, actually better basketball. I think some high schools in KY would give UK a run for their money this year.

mowgli on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 4:04 PM

anyone doing anything for st. patty's tomorrow night?

phil - are you watching uofl anywhere tonight?

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 4:47 PM

joe's place. 7pm

Phil on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 5:05 PM

i have vouchers for reserved seating at Jim Patterson Stadium for April 7th vs IU. $1 Hotdogs, beer and soft drinks.

Strangely the reserved seating is first come first server. I have no idea what any of this means, but it looks like a cheap and fun time

joe on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 5:24 PM

I might be down for some UL baseball.

Tonight, my house 7, nothing fancy. Sounds like me, laura gets off work at 7, my parents, maybe chris, phil and whoever else wants to.

anyone want to take a guess at the percent of Louisville possessions with the first shot being a three?

Brent on Friday, March 13, 2009 at 9:28 PM

That's a terrible contra reference, everybody knows that contra was played on a nintendo and that is clearly an xbox 360...sheesh.

Brock on Saturday, March 14, 2009 at 1:26 AM

Alright all, I'm planning to solidify the cabin trip this weekend. I think April 17th-19th works best for most.

Thus far, its looking like 12-14 with some more on the fence. A couple of ladies from Vanderbilt asked if there would be any single guys in attendance, so if that encourages stags to join, please let me know.

Chris made the suggestion of something close to town, but I'll have to defer to Marc on whether that's a priority since he's had experience with a large group in the cabins. I certainly like the Smoky Mountain Brews, but maybe I can negotiate a keg delivery.

Of course I'm overwhelmed with the selection of cabins/chalets for rent, so any suggestions or ideas to narrow the choices are welcome.

Phil on Saturday, March 14, 2009 at 11:07 AM

If UL wins tonight do they get the #1 overall seed? Honestly, how could they not get it? Win both Big East season and tourney, while UNC loses? It would be difficult to explain giving it to a big east school finishing behind them or UNC after not making their conf tourney final. Who else can you even consider? Memphis? Michigan State if they win the Big Ten?

Wrecking Crew on Saturday, March 14, 2009 at 4:52 PM

How 'bout the latest Bracketology? UL #1 in the South playing Morehead in the first round with Duke as a #2 and UCLA as a #4. That's some good classic college basketball.

I think 2. We lost to Temple one year when Freedom Hall still had ice hockey and the players kept slipping on the court, then there was the year we went to the Final four of the NIT.

Yeah, probably not......maybe we can just go to BW3s for the games?

Joanna on Monday, March 16, 2009 at 10:37 AM

I'll consider driving as long as everyone agrees not to pick up any randoms and promise them a ride home and swear they are totally cool and not ax murderers. That may be asking too much though.

Bigworm on Monday, March 16, 2009 at 10:42 AM

Are any of you Bellarmine alums planning to take the free bus up to Findlay tomorrow to watch the Knights pull off the upset in the Sweet 16?

I got the following email and thought I'd share:

BELLARMINE KNIGHTS IN THE SWEET 16!

BU is planning the biggest road trip in Bellarmine history and we want all of our alumni to be a part of it!

For the first time ever your Bellarmine Knights Men's Basketball team has advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Division II Tournament. THE KNIGHTS WILL PLAY ON TUESDAY NIGHT AT 7:00PM IN FINDLAY, OHIO and they will take on the #1 team in the nation, the University of Findlay (32-0), on their home court.

Bellarmine is offering a FREE BUS TRIP for all alumni, students, faculty, and staff. If you sign up you get a free bus trip to and from the game, a free ticket, a free box lunch, and a free t-shirt. The bus will leave at noon on Tuesday from Bellarmine's Knights Hall and return following the 7:00pm game Tuesday night. Findlay is about a 4.5 hour drive from Louisville.

YOU CAN CHOOSE TO GO ON THE FREE BUS OR DRIVE YOURSELF TO FINDLAY, OHIO. EITHER WAY, TO GET YOUR FREE TICKET TO THE GAME CALL THE ALUMNI OFFICE AT (502) 452-8333 BY 5:00PM TODAY (MONDAY).

The University of Findlay allocated Bellarmine a very limited amount of tickets so call now to reserve your spot. All Bellarmine fans are encouraged to meet at the University of Findlay by 6:00pm on Tuesday so we can all go in together and sit together behind the Bellarmine bench. We will have General Admission tickets. All Bellarmine fans are encouraged to wear black BU gear.

If you cannot make it to Findlay, Ohio on Tuesday night, please tune into BU RADIO on the internet to listen to play by play action of the game. http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=htt...llarmine.edu%2F.

We hope to see a great group of Bellarmine alumni, students, faculty, and staff to help us cheer on the Knights on Tuesday evening against the #1 team in the nation in the NCAA Sweet 16.

GO KNIGHTS!

douglas on Monday, March 16, 2009 at 3:55 PM

if uk didn't suck meeks would've been a shoo-in on the first team, that's why he needs to stay put, probably everyone on that first team will be gone, as well as a couple from the second, so if he stays he starts off the year as an all-american and will get much more exposure, which means better draft status

Bigworm on Monday, March 16, 2009 at 4:00 PM

i can't believe that would ever happen. the whole damn state would explode with the fury

Bigworm on Tuesday, March 17, 2009 at 1:07 AM

Of course he is. So is John Cal, Roy Williams and Bill Self.

douglas on Tuesday, March 17, 2009 at 8:29 AM

that's total bullshit, coaches aren't gonna' recruit a senior-to-be who can go pro if he's sick of where he's at. besides, i know a guy at work whose aunt is a big donor in lexington to UK, and she apparently has a friend that's a realtor, and billy donovan has been looking at horse farms around lexington again, apparently the folks in gainesville aren't too happy about two straight NIT trips and he's about to get run out of town, and word is UK's been hush hush behind the scenes wooing him so they can get BG out

douglas on Tuesday, March 17, 2009 at 8:31 AM

for what it's worth, mike bush does actually have a client in lex that's a small time donor, apparently said it's not gonna' happen this year, but whenever UK does get a new coach, they're gonna' go after darrin horn probably

I am not sure who exactly that affects more; I work for the veterans benefits administration and then there is the hospital which is under the Veterans health administration. The VBA decides who is service connected disabled and by how much and the VHA treats the veterans. As for who pays for the treatment, that is something I am not sure of. I think we are all screwed.

Bigworm on Tuesday, March 17, 2009 at 8:50 AM

UF is retarded. Why get rid of a coach that has won 2 national titles and been to the championship game another time....at a football school mind you. Douglas you are correct about them becoming sour towards BD, I think a lot of it stems from losing faith in recruting top players. They are realizing when Anthony Grant left, so did top out of state players.

Bigworm on Tuesday, March 17, 2009 at 8:51 AM

Oh and that came from Erin Andrews not some booster in Lexington.

douglas on Tuesday, March 17, 2009 at 9:03 AM

wes, i probably wasn't clear enough in my sarcasm, my first post was total bullshit, i was just making fun of the rumor mill, a la meeks getting recruiting by pitino. but if you win 2 straight titles with guys that weren't heavily recruited out of high school, then you get at least a five year reprieve of any criticism.

I might just park there then. I don't even know if it will be worth trying to park closer.

douglas on Tuesday, March 17, 2009 at 3:57 PM

yes, please come, bow before me and pray.

Phil on Tuesday, March 17, 2009 at 4:00 PM

"Dear lord, let us pray for eric douglas for he's getting married. Dear Lord, we all know that married people are gay, and how you feel about gay people, so let us pray to save his mortal soul. Amen."

joe on Tuesday, March 17, 2009 at 4:14 PM

Just talked to Chris and he plans to come out where ever anybody is and stay till the UK defeat is accepted.

Bigworm on Tuesday, March 17, 2009 at 4:15 PM

Just talked to Chris and we are planning to hit the BW3's in St. Matthews around 9. He has rounds at 6 am.

Bigworm on Tuesday, March 17, 2009 at 5:02 PM

Brock on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 1:56 AM

Took shots with Jay Cutler tonight. The Broncos are not his best buds right now. Titans are trying to put something together for a trade, would be nice. I almost suggested the Bengals, but I prefer Carson Palmer.

Most informative St. Patty's Day ever.

Cabin weekend set: April 17th-19th. I'm not sure how I post photos of Vandy girls for Phil and Brent without being a ghetto pimp, but they have intelligence.

Jameson bad. Beam good.

joe on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 7:52 AM

So Cuban, Laura and I went to Shenanigan's last night. We ran into a bunch of people from Bellarmine but I don't know who they are but they looked familiar. We ran into my cousin who Wes remembers as nectar of the gods and she was with her sister's husband but not her sister, wierd. Some of my mom's friends were their drunk. But most importantly we ran into "the Emily Ramser" and "the Katie Payne." Cuban had enough booze in him to go and talk to each of them and mention Phil so it was interesting.

douglas on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 8:42 AM

emily ramser's getting a divorce

joe on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 8:47 AM

Yep, I heard that a few months ago from some guy at work. Cuban went up and talked to her and asked something like if her last name was Ramser and she said it will be again soon.

douglas on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 8:54 AM

i don't remember the whole story she told sarah, but i think the short version is the dude cheated on her

Phil on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 9:20 AM

i have a headache

Brock on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 9:23 AM

Today should be the "holiday"

Phil on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 9:27 AM

i think it should go two half days. work in the morning of the 14th and get the morning of the 15th off. I see no reason why more holidays shouldn't be set up like that

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 9:50 AM

And for anybody who cares, Perry Stevenson completely posterized some jackass last night. Here is the dunk.

douglas on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 10:36 AM

that was unbelievable i saw that last night and jumped off the couch. this will sound like loser talk, well actually it is loser talk and just trying to make the most of a bad situation, but playing in the NIT might be better for UK this year, like last night a lot of guys got a lot of minutes and more experience that probably wouldnt've in the NCAA, and the crowd was amazing, which might help in motivating them a little bit to win a few games in this tournament and carry more optimism into the offseason

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 10:38 AM

Cheryl - That is good stuff. Woo Woooo!!!!

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 10:39 AM

Douglas - UK is playing in the NIT to get as many wins as possible. UK is in a race vs. UNC as the first team to 2000 wins.

joe on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 10:42 AM

Who does UK play next?

douglas on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 10:42 AM

yeah i know that too, which is important, and it keeps UNC from gaining any ground. and there's some other reasons too, like any bad PR they'd get nationally if they skipped it. i'm just saying it seems like they're making the best of a bad situation and it could turn out to be a catalyst to a much more optimistic offseason if they do well in the NIT

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 10:44 AM

I agree. I think they play Monday night, probably on the road against #1 seed Creighton.

joe on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 10:50 AM

Is that where UL transfer Chad Millard is?

joe on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 10:52 AM

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/playe...?playerId=27276

Much rather be averaging 1 pt a game for a #1 seed in the NIT then doing the same at UL.

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 11:09 AM

I think I'd rather ride pine at Louisville than ride pine at Creighton.

joe on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 11:11 AM

It appears Lorenzo Wade is the only transfer that is making an impact. Brian Johnson sucks at Mississippi State and Bryan Harvey sucks at Fresno State. Millard as before mentioned sucks at Creighton. Derrick Caracter is where ever he is in JUCO land. I don't know where Stuart Miller transferred to. I think Pitino ran off the right players.

Brent on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 12:14 PM

Phil, I think someone needs to explain the 4 qualities to Brock.

Brent on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 12:15 PM

Taco Bell last night after a hot dog was a bad idea.

Phil on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 12:38 PM

Mentioning the 4 qualities is not the best of ideas in the presence of women.

You'd think facebook could be used for the purpose of pimping.

Phil on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 12:38 PM

So the damage at Wick's last night. Around 16 beers and 10 car bombs (obviously not all me - well, maybe not that obvious). One peperoni and banana pepper meridith.

Total bill? $30.16.

Someone from the Leo thinks BCG is done.

douglas on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 2:32 PM

i'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that someone from the Leo does not exactly have as "well placed" sources as they might think

douglas on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 2:32 PM

and everything they said in the leo could be found on any KY message board

Phil on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 2:38 PM

that guy never seems to be right either.

Phil on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 3:13 PM

i spent way too much time reading this site today: http://www.fmylife.com/

this is my favorite so far: "Today, I woke up, completely naked, in bed with a guy I met the night before. We were both drunk the night before and I had agreed to go home with him. The reason I woke up was that someone was knocking on his bedroom door. Turns out he lives with his mom and she made us pancakes. FML"

joe on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 3:30 PM

What is FML?

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 3:34 PM

fuck my life?

douglas on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 4:31 PM

thanks phil, now wasting away my day

i like this one:
Today, my mom came to wake me up because my alarm didn't go off. She brought my dog in to wake me up and he came and laid on bed. I started to rub what i thought was his neck and playing with a random tuft of fur. I soon realized that it was his penis. I gave my dog a handjob. FML

Jay on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 5:32 PM

I just put an offer on a house that got accepted

Jerome on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 11:26 PM

Team USA's running out of time ... down 4 runs, bottom 8, no outs and Adam Dunn just booted a grounder.

Jerome on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 11:29 PM

Oh, wait ... this is just a seeding game. WTF is a seeding game? This isn't baseball!

Phil on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 11:50 PM

when do we play the koreans? I'm making some bets with my cousin!

Brock on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 11:57 PM

So is it just Phil and I in the Yahoo brackets?

Phil on Thursday, March 19, 2009 at 12:05 AM

truly a low point

Brock on Thursday, March 19, 2009 at 12:26 AM

Its because the link got buried... everyone is too lazy to look.

joe on Thursday, March 19, 2009 at 7:47 AM

It is a seeding game because the top 2 teams from their bracket advance to the championship round and they already qualified for the championship round so they are just playing the game because they have to.

Brock on Thursday, March 19, 2009 at 10:07 AM

3 brackets! Yay! less than 2 hours left.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 19, 2009 at 10:29 AM

4 brackets!

douglas on Thursday, March 19, 2009 at 10:34 AM

i'm in

Barry on Thursday, March 19, 2009 at 10:42 AM

sorry i forgot. i'm in.

douglas on Thursday, March 19, 2009 at 11:24 AM

I highly doubt any of this is true, I can't picture pitino wanting to go back to UK, but this shit always makes for good entertainment:

joe on Thursday, March 19, 2009 at 11:30 AM

Can't access from work. I'm in the battle between mind and heart on the bracket so I don't think I am going to fill any out.
