John Wall & Demarcus Cousins = New Kobe & Shaqhttp://ncaabasketball.fanhouse.com/...-kobe-and-shaq/
Charlie Brooker - How To Report The Newshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtGSXMuWMR4
No Olympic game bets have popped up though. that's gay
I will have to read the shaq kobe when I get home
That bit on how to report the news was hilarious. So Phil, I have off on Fridays now, which means if a karaoke opportunity arises...we take it!
It's a good read. I like Clay Travis
i don't think that shaq kobe article is worth jackshit. UK had a bad game, it's amazing how many people are reading way too much into it now. basically it just says wall / cousins aren't a strong tandem together, their games don't complement each other, which is crap. he took just the s. carolina game as an example where the team leaned on cousins and they lost. a couple days ago UK was unstoppable, today they can't make the sweet 16. they played their shittiest game of the year on the road at a tough place to play against a little fucker who shot 30% but made a few circus shots at the end of the game. he doesn't talk about all the games where cousins / wall have completely decimated teams on the floor together
it's an interesting theory, but no way can you get me to believe UK is better when one of them is on the bench
Good read, I didn't realize Cousins is avg less than 1 assist/game but definitely noticed that the other players standing and waiting for him to go to the basket.
I think the argument is made, that UK is better when Wall is the leader of the offense.
My mom just called me telling me she saw Mike Bush's wife Suzanne on Good Morning Kentuckiana for her cooking endeavors. Douglas, is she going to Vancouver to cook for the Olympic team?
i wouldn't dispute that, but he tried to say that having cousins on the floor hurts wall's game, and vice versa, when that couldn't be farther from the truth. he was using the last game as evidence, when in reality Wall just had his shittiest game to date, as did bledsoe. he was right about cousins not distributing the ball and everyone kinda standing around when he touched it down low, but that's not something that occurs every game.
Chris Jericho, Matt Hardy and Greg the Hurricane Helms arrested in Kenton County KY for public intoxication at a gas station
i saw jericho and helms, didn't see hardy in there
He might have been with them and not arrested. Radio was confusing
Your Super Bowl Bye Week Pooparoohttp://deadspin.com/5458631/your-su...e-week-pooparoo
Interesting note:Scout.com has UL's football recruiting class better then UK's
neither one is particularly inspiring. #44 for Louisville and #48 for Kentucky. Louisville has two four star recruits and UK has one.Of course, UK's four star recruit is also a punter.
Todd Chandler (3 star DR), Dominique Brown (3 star QB), Deon Rogers (3 star OLB), Kadron Boone (4 star WR) and Josh Bellamy (3 star WR) are all in the mix and probably looking to commit come signing day so that might move Louisville above Arkansas.The problems is that Strong is honoring Kragthorpe's commitments so they may actually have to not sign Boone. Thankfully they don't have to honor commitments from players who told people they were going to Louisville but were not actually offered. They will just have to be blackballed forever from schools in that case.
i just about pooped in my pants reading that pooperoo. seriously though, that story with the baby had my ribs cracking
This weather is bullshit
A buddy of mine is going to talk to one of the coaches at Stephenson HS in GA after signing day. He told me he'd inquire about the Strong situation as to what went down so I'll just pass it along.We wouldn't want him to get blackballed from those southern schools.Joe - trust me I know man. Yesterday I had a headache all day. Today it s progressively worse. As the storm cell gets closer and closer and the pressure changes I can feel it in my damn head. Sucks.
I feel like that blonde in mean girls that uses her boobs to predict the weather, but with my head.
Wes just quoted Mean Girls? Wow. Its one thing to admit to seeing it, but referencing it is a whole different story.
Louisville's recruiting class is ranked higher than UK's on scout.com because UofL has 27 recruits vs. 22 for UK. In the non-perfect but this is the only thing we've got to rate players with star ranking system, UofL's average recruit is 2.33 stars and UK's is 2.64 stars.The more important thing though is to compare that within each owns conference so:Big East14. Pitt 24/3.2126. W. Va 20/3.1044. Louisville 27/2.3353. South Fla 17/2.7156. Cinci 20/2.3557. Syr 26/2.2767. Rut 15/2.5372. Conn 20/2.15SEC1. Florida 25/3.924. Bama 25/3.645. Auburn 28/3.397. LSU 24/3.3810. UGA 19/3.6321. UT 22/3.2330. Ole Piss 17/3.2938. USC 21/2.8141. Miss St. 21/2.7143. Arky 22/2.6448. UK 22/2.6450. Vandy 24/2.42I don't like the star system on an individual basis because some players are projected at a certain position but then play elsewhere. I do think that when comparing your class of talent to another schools, then the average rating is a good way to compare, but that doesn't mean jack because the game isn't played on paper. For example, UK has a kid they signed named Tyler Brause that was rated like the #70 QB in the country. UK recruited him to be a TE and once his position changed on scout he is now like the #34 TE in the country, but still a 3-star prospect so that does not impact the class ranking because no star was gained or loss.
Did that rebuttal keep you up all night?
Why would that be a surprise? I give you homos the heads up for Pottery Barn sales and shit. I need to check out Crate and Barrell next. No, the rebutall did not keep me up all night. Just bored and elaborating on Phil's post.
Damn it brent, how did we not at least not get one of those girls numbers. We had a girl bitching about her boyfriend on a Thursday night. That used to be mmy wheelhouse!
I'm pretty sure it's because you guys were born before 1980 ...
Your mom was born before 1980
That was a good one Rome.
I guess the main point I was trying to make is that when you play only 4 OOC games and 8 in conference games, the more important thing to do is to compare your team to your own conference. In the Big East, you have two schools in Pitt and W. Va that lead the pack, however, UofL is in the thick of things with the others. Is there really that big of a difference between a low 3-star and high 2-star. No not really.In the SEC, UK has their work cut out for them. You have Florida that is pulling in a staggering average of a 4-star player...that is just mind boggling. Then you have 7 schools that have a 3.23 star average. Hard for us/UK to compete in the SEC. It's amazing we beat anybody not named Vandy.
will you have this kind of time when Pharm school starts?
Looking back at the 2006 5-star recruits football recruits. Worth the hype?http://cfn.scout.com/2/940369.html#26 - Peanut Whitehead. It is really not fair to include him on this list, I don't understand how you can properly evaluate one's career when their career abruptly ended due to injury.
Or atleast say he wasn't worth the hype.
I would love to still have that guy playing for UL. A shame he won't be able to ever play football. I'd say he was legit.
Nope, I'll be in class from like 8-5/6 daily and I don't really plan on working. They limit us to 10 hours per week even if I do work. So I'll be going to school 11 weeks and then off 2 weeks, year round. With SUCOP being an accelerated program, the year round schedule permits your classwork to be completed in 2 years instead of the traditional 3 years, and it's 88 vs. 90 weeks of classwork which is pretty comparable. I still have a years worth of rotations after classwork. I hope I keep my grades up high enough to land a residency, in pharmacy we can do up to 2 years of residency that allows you to specialize but you do make significantly less than a pharmacist. At least I'll be making a little bit of money for those two years instead of paying out.
I agree with that Joe. He was right on schedule to be a quality DE. It's hard to even take a 5-star kid and throw him right up against major D1 football players. Very sad for that young man. I think they kept him on scholarship though to finish out his career, correct?
Ok, this sucks. Not sure what to say really but there are some classic lines in this one.http://www.wave3.com/Global/story.asp?S=11837969
Belski's blog - at this point in time, they are still guessing snow amounts.http://wave3.typepad.com/belskis_blog/
I just took a gander at UofL's recruits. You guys have a decent class going considering how the play was this year. If scout evaluates your last 3 commits your class could get up to near or in the 30's depending how they grade them out.
The one guy I wish we had that you fuckers stole is the Brandon Dunn kid, 6'4" 270 pound DT. You put him in a good program and can build yourself a quality athletic DT.

Did anyone see the Pants on the Ground remix by Jay Cardosi and John Belski?
it was turrrible
Cuban and I were discussing the need to get people together and rock out. We decided the next good reason would be Cuban's last birthday of his 20s. 3 weeks from today is cuban's birthday and he is going out for it. He wants people to join him at the bar. Anyone want to celebrate a Cuban holiday by meeting him out at a bar?
when do you want to do it? I am a no go on the 27th or the 6th.
February 19th is his b-day.
I heard of a thing today where you say a girl must be a Bengals fan, good looking uniform ugly helmet. Basically the same thing as a butter face.
26th is also out for me.
Belski is about to go nuts trying to predict this storm. He says this is about as tight as you can go to figure out if we are going to get anything. Righ now, northern suburbs can expect less than an inch and sheperdsville 6-8 inches. http://wave3.typepad.com/belskis_blog/
From the blog at 11 am. Brock hope you are ready.Here are some forecasts for the cities to our south....what a storm!Little Rock: 1/4 to 1/2 inch of ice and then 1-2 inches of snow.Memphis: 1/4 inch ice and then 4-8 inches of snowNashville: 4-9 inches of snowKnoxville: 4-9 inches of snowGatlinburg: 6-14 inches of snowChattanooga, TN: 1-3 inches of snowAsheville, NC: 6-10 inches of snowSpartanburg, Greenville, SC & Charlotte, NC: 2-4 inches of snow and sleetRoanoke, VA: 5-9 inches of snowGreensboro, Winston-Salem, Raleigh, NC: 5-10 inches of snowBeckley, WV: 4-8 inches of snowRichmond, VA: 6-12 inches of snowNorfolk, VA: 6-12 inches of snow
So when you are at a bar and tell a girl "who dey" we all know what you mean.
Someone last month did an Iama on working for the KGB text answering service.I came close to asking them what image blind people masturbate too the other day.

I decided that occasionally on the radio Bob Valvano's voice can come off almost sounding like Seth Rogen.
if the kid that writes the gambling article turns out to not be a 13 year old I'm going to be disappointedhttp://deadspin.com/5459725/bad-bea...-kiss-the-girlsFive Girls I'd Like To Kiss Of The WeekSports: Maria Sharapova. "Are you kidding me?!" some of you are saying. "It's Danica Patrick, right?" No. I'll take the tall, slim, blonde European tennis player, thanks very much. I'd much rather put my lips on that. You can take the chick who'd be a waitress at your local Ruby Tuesday's if it wasn't for the fact that she's good at driving go-karts. I don't like kisses that taste like BBQ sauce. Also, how can car racing be a sport when you can probably eat a steak burrito while driving?
It's cloudy sideways!!!... stupid ass weather knob gobblers ...
Been snowing here since 9am. I'd say maybe 2 inches thus far, but the radar shows snow coming from Oklahoma still on the way. This town has no preparation for snow, it'll be fun.
OK got killed w/ snow, we haven't seen a flake yet
Pretty cool, Louisville lands cyclocross world championship...first time in 50 years the championship has been held outside of Europe.http://www.courier-journal.com/arti...clocross+events
drunk drove through the snow. no problem.
Strong work Phil. We beat the snow home.
We got a whopping 3 inches at my house.
What did cousins do now?
My wife says that we got a whopping 3 inches here too ... all the time ...

I missed it, why was LeBron at the UK game?
Nvm, found out, apparently Calipari hired one of his long time friends as a coach.
Joe - Has Cuban decided what he wants to do on his birthday?Anybody taking off for what should be a national holiday Wednesday?
I am assuming we are going out on the 19th?
What is Wednesday?I think cuban was leaning towards hitting up St. Matthews bars on the Friday that is his b-day.
I can do st. matthews
National Signing Day for college football. St. Matts bars are just fine with me.
So when AJ signs with some European soccer club are you going to have a big fancy shindig?
I prefer Austin to play football to soccer, however, iIf he can make money playing soccer in the English Premier League, fuck yeah.Right now he is ambidextrous, and could end up being a lefty, so he can always become a crafty lefty like you Joe.
i like number 11 getting those kneess bent to get up and play some defense, and realizing it was all futile and just watching the dude dunk on himhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kkqp...player_embedded
Would have been nice to get into the High speed rail plans sooner than later. http://www.courier-journal.com/blog...970c-757516.jpg
It sounds more like a Shelbyville idea.
Works for me. Easier to buy farmland than to buy downtown property, cheaper too.
I hear those things are awfully loud...
Jerome, are you making a Simpson's reference? Kind of sounds like the monorail episode.
That would be awesome...imagine taking a 2 hour train ride to Chicago or 30 min to Nashville...Phil, we would be season ticket holders to Predator games.
seems odd they wouldn't connect memphis to nashville, but they'd connect Chicago to Carbondale. What the hell is even in Carbondale besides SIU?
Phil, what do you think about taking around 4 days off and going on spring break? We'll do it on a week other than Louisville and just say we're from another school...how much fun would that be?
i wouldn't exactly buy stock in that high speed rail, the chances of any of that getting done within 20 years is minimal at best
be done about the same time as the bridges?
John Wall on Coach Cal, "I just try not to listen to him and go out and play basketball."
probably, they'll actually have to build a third bridge to get that rail from louisville to indy like they had on that map, talk about a clusterfuck
coach cal on john wall immediately after he said that comment:“He comes in like a puppy dog and says, ‘Coach I need to talk to you, I am frustrated.’ I told him, ‘just play and enjoy yourself. When you play bad, its ok to play bad. You act like you cant play bad. Yes you can. He came over and said ‘I love you” and hugged me and left.”a complete non story, just a frustrated player after several bad (for him) gameshttp://vaughtsviews.com/?p=2889
I've been pushing for this high-speed rail for years. 30 minutes back to Louisville? I certainly wouldn't miss any more NYE parties.
96 team march madness?http://www.sportsbybrooks.com/sourc...done-deal-27742
I would love high speed rail, in the long run it would save huge costs.
I get the feeling I may be dead before we get high speed rail
i think the Dominique Brown, the QB Louisville signed, looks like howard the duck:http://louisville.scout.com/a.z?s=1...amp;nid=3614310
Phil, with your lifestyle that may be sooner then later.
Big East admits error at the end of another UL game.
yeah, they're not catching any breaks lately
with big east officiating like that it my lifespan is decreasing rapidly. I damn near tore off a nail when I saw Delk get ran over on the three. I need to be better about picking at these things during this season.
How is that even Cornell is ranked in basketball? Fuck UL.
Anybody down for alumni trivia...if we could get Brody in on the action, I think we would have a strong chance:2010 HOMECOMING WEEKFriday, Feb. 12: Alumni Trivia Night -One of the biggest Alumni Events of the year! 250 people in 2009! -7pm - 10pm, Knights Hall -Teams of 4-8 people, all do not have to be alums -$15 per person includes: a night of Trivia, beer, giveaways, and lots of fun! -You can bring your own food, wine, alcohol, etc for your table -All proceeds go to the Alumni Scholarship Fund

I am glad someone else noticed that.
Nothing like starting the drive into work with DMX.And for the update that everybody can't wait for, I received an email that says only 7 days left to get 10% of your online order at Pottery Barn.
do they sell lost or stolen testicles there?
Not sure, never looked for those. I did see a really nice looking accent pillow with a bird on it.
Cuban's house Sunday for the Super Bowl if anyone is interested.
Pitt might be moving to the big 10, which could be super bad for UL / big east football:http://withleather.uproxx.com/2010/...s-break-it-down
It's only big if they take the autobid from the Big East conference, if not, then UofL could get an easier path to the BCS Championship. Of course, Cinci went undefeated and still didn't get a shot so who knows?
Adrian, you doing lunch anytime?
I think the Pitt to Big Ten rumor was put to rest yesterday.I simply don't believe it because apparently the rumor came from one of the players. The players don't know shit. They are the last to know about their freaking coach, for christ sake. You think the AD was thinking "we gotta keep this under wraps. Lets meat with seven hundred nineteen year-olds on our team - surely we can trust them not to get the word out!"
I am sure the Big Ten would love to get the additional market share.
that was the first i'd heard of it, so i'm sure there's nothing to it. if it had legs i think it'd be everywhere
I don't know what I want for lunch and everybody bailed on me and I don't want to be the guy eating out by himself. I think today calls for a walk to CVS and wander downtown louisville eating beef jerky drinking a root beer. Is that worse then being the guy by himself at the food court?
no, b/c when you're walking around you can always look like you've got someplace to go. you can always check your watch a lot and hold your cell phone to your ear to look important too
I just had lunch by myelf. Then again, my entire life is fucked, so i'm not really your go to example
Ha, I live my life eating alone. Man up, pussy.
French fries and tears don't mix well.
I find that bbq sauce's vinegar typically compliments the acidity of tears.
How about a 96 team NCAA tourney?What is the point of having a regular season?http://www.sportsbybrooks.com/sourc...done-deal-27742
I went with being that guy at lunch in the magazines at Borders reading baseball and mountain biking magazines. I think we need to hit up where Just Like Joe played open mike, Highland Taproom on Bardstown road, for a Cubs noon game on a Friday and drink cheap Old Style. Good excuse to leave work early and they do beer specials during cub's games.
Leaving work early to watch world cup games at molly's is also well worth it. People get FUCKED UP at those games and it gets festive
Right on Philco. I usually end up at BW3s for World Cup games because I go back to work.
Signing Day tomorrow if going to be interesting for UK. One of our OL commits just de-committed and is going to sign with UGA and there is rumor that Ryan Smith is going to sign with Auburn. Fuckers.
Miles Simpson is probably going to UK though, so that's nice for you all

Why Get Married: Deadspin Mailbag!http://deadspin.com/5462485/why-get...mailbag-tuesdayJoe recommended that I find one longer article per day that I post late so that in the morning everyone can print it out and take it to the shitter as your magazine at work. This is the reading for the week
I got the motivation today to disinfect my desk. Holy shit our office is dirty. I used some clorox wipes and wiped everything down and it was spotless. A half hour later the layer of dust in my cube was disgusting. No wonder people are always sneezing and taking sick days. The files that we have are the same ages as our veterans, so we have a city block worth of files ranging in age from 1-90. The older files crumble when you touch them. I am becoming a hypochondriac I think.
looks like Patterson is a probable for UK too. He won't make the grades and the big east doesn't allow partial qualifiers so unless something magical happens U of L is definitely out.
I know Wes has been linking to this site lately, but was this posted about BCG?http://www.sportsbybrooks.com/boozy...-a-little-27751
Nothing like listening to Marcus Allen talk about prostate cancer on Mike and Mike in the morning.
I think Patterson goes to UofL, at this point not sure, regardless he will have to be placed.UK did get Alex Smith one time commit to Cinci, then changed it to UNC.
Another Big surprise for UK, just got Brandon Gainer out of Miami, FL.Gainer is #15 RB according to ESPN, #37 on Scout, and not sure on Rivals.
I am declaring my intent to walk on at the university of Phoenix to play football in the upcoming season, assuming I pass the NCAA clearing house. I may not have any eligibility left.
Mike Thornton to UGA
no way was patterson ever going to Louisville. He won't qualify unless it's a miracle. UK is putting together a nice class though.
I saw Louisville lost that Torrian Wilson Olineman recruit. He was a nice looking prospect.
how many LOIs does Louisville have in so far?
8 today so farQB Dominque Brown, LB Tyon Dixon, DT Jamaine Brooks, OL Jake Smith, DL Dunn, WR Robinson, WR Michaelee Harris, RB Corvin Lamb Torrian Wilson was the weird one. Oh well. The guys they made a late run on didn't come through either, but considering how little time he's been recruiting these guys it isn't surprising.
Did they go elsewhere?
ESPN radio is playing a nerd alert sound anytime signing day is mentioned
That's funny especially because ESPNU holds coverage all day long analyzing it.
To paraphrase colin cowherd: isn't there a law against adult men droolling over 17 year old boys?
Most are 18!
Anyone ever listen to Dennis Miller's radio show? Is it worth listening to it?
I am working the antenna of my radio. If I get it right I can get Jim Rome, Dennis Miller or Colin Cowherd. Who do you recommend?

i should have woke up earlier to watch Alabama's Fax Cam
Fuck a fax cam. That is awesome right there.The monorail read was interesting and a good idea. I wish we had something better for where I am at.
it was just the fax machine. every once in a while some paper came out. then a name was taped to the wall behind it. It was no Door cam.DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR!
that's great stuff.
to put in perspective on how random shit is, Louisville swayed a 3 star UC commit. One of the reasons given?"my mom loves the seat backs on the stadium seats"
UofL can have whatever that one was. UC will take McClung.http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-...from-Louisville
Was McClung a big time recruit? Scout has him listed as the #191 WR in the country?Not surprising that Louisville lost a 2 star WR though. Here are their commits this year at WR:Michaelee Harris (4 star)Stephan Robinson (3 star)Kai Dominguez (3 star)Corvin Lamb (2 star, considered one the fastest guys in the class)Jarrett Davis (2 star, but legit 4.3 40 time)Josh Bellamy (JUCO, was a 4 star out of high school)Jerrell Moore and DeVante Parker are also committed for next year.Cinci definitely needed a WR more, and we probably needed a MLB more. Fair enough trade.
McClung's asset is his speed. I believe he has been timed in a sub 4.3 40 yard dash.
The only reason UC got McClung was because of Dyuan Lewis. It was a tandem set of receivers they were trying to get from that Indy HS. They aren't really hurting for WRs though. Gilyard is the only graduate. Two underclassmen were huge contributors last year and the USC transfer Hazelton is eligible.The offense will once again be solid with the RB's maturing.Besides... the name McClung is just fun to say.

looks like Cal will finally get rid of Jon Hood. Probably to WKU
Excerpt on UK's 4 star, "His kick-offs go into the end zone, his punts hang in the air with great distance, and he has the strength to kick field goals over 60 yards."You know, it would be pretty bad ass if you have a kicker that could regularly ding 45-50 yard field goals.
not everybody can have art carmody
Text from Cuban: How many Hispanics does it take to clean a bathroom?Text from Lynnie at 11:00 pm: What is your record or chris' record at Hooter's?Text messaging is a brilliant thing. No one would ever think to pick up a phone to say this stuff.
That's great stuff. Text messaging is brilliant because you can answer shit without making a bro get up and get the phone. Next time you grab your cell phone bam the question is there and you can respond on your time.
Brent - that 4-star kicker was named kicker of the decade in Georgia about 2 weeks ago when they released their HS all-decade team. Joker says he has the "strongest leg I've ever seen". I know when I was watching his scout.com video that when you see the holder place the ball down on the 45 yard line and he kicks it with room to spare...that is pretty badass.
Of course, Mike Marra is the greatest HS shooter Pitino has ever seen so I am taking Joker's comments with a grain of salt.
You already have Tadlyaka, why do you need another kicker?
The Trinity kid will punt Mansour will handle kickoffs and FGs.
Guy I work with was saying supposedly the kicker from this past Trinity team is pretty legit, he had some interest from both UL and UK for this upcoming season. He was hitting 45 yarders and beyond all season long.
Monte Merrick played at Bell County last year and he hit a couple from like 55 and 57 yards. He was suppose to be a pretty good kicker, not sure what happened to him. I do know that Mansour is the reason why UK didn't go after him.
I don't think Hood is transferring anywhere.
he is all but gone. Calipari couldn't ask him to leave like the rest of BCG's class, but he's finally ran him off. I'm 99% sure he won't be back for the 2010 season.
even the WVU players don't like WVU fans:http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/basket...rn=ncaab,217537
I mean it wouldn't surprise me but who knows?This was posted on the UK board."A supposed friend of the family posted on another board. Said he's doing fine, not upset about anything. Understands the team is loaded and there are better players ahead of him. Basically said Cal thinks he has a future at UK and his day will come."I haven't seen anything posted from someone I'd consider to be reputable so you could be correct.
Hood never fit in with the style of offense Calipari was gonna run. But unlike the other guys, Cal was too smart to run off the great white Kentucky hope and royally piss of the true blue fans. Apparently Hood got the message and will be gone at the end of the seasonI heard Hood was pretty peaved when it looked like he'd get some playing time when Dodson and Liggins were suspended after getting busted for possession, but then Dodson was brought back early because UK needed shooting and back Hood went to the bench.Hood leaving should be good. The 2010 class should shape up good for UK. I'm not sure where douglas is getting the 3 out of the top 5 players, but good none the less so his spot should prove valuable.
Could be correct. I really don't know.
And there isn't much going on with the boards on Hood.
Clemson Football gets the feel good story of the day.http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/20...mmitment.lb.ap/
cool story. Clemson has always been good lookng out and a class act. They went out of their way a few years back to help the dude who took custody of his brother and was struggling to meet ends meet.
actually, never mind. I went to look that dude up and apparently Tommy Bowden pulled the kid's scholarship to make room for a linebacker after he got hurt. Apparently he went to Howard to play and finished grad school.
Finally, change we can believe inhttp://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/01...x.html?hpt=Sbin
hey brent, freakanomics now has a podcasthttp://freakonomics.blogs.nytimes.c...gle+Feedfetcher
So I went to White Castle for lunch today and decided not to eat my corn dogs I brought today. Apparently I don't read the things taped to the work fridge and they were cleaning out the fridges. I rolled by and saw them cleaning out the fridge so I asked if I ws too late and the woman gave me attitude in a country twang that didn't even make sense. I lost 2 corn dogs, a bottle of root beer and a can of big red. We have mountains of food that is being wasted because they decided to clean out the fridge. 2:00 is a horrible time to clean the fridge. There was not even a warning email or email at all mentioning the food being thrown away. A 1:55 email saying hey fridge being cleaned claim any food or else. That is garbage!
i just broke the rules of physics. The batteries in my wireless mouse just died.So I pulled them out, swapped which side they are on and now it's working. I am a miracle worker
We are amused by the most petty things
...and dick and fart jokes. Don't forget the dick and fart jokes.
Well I think you confused Bowden with being classy.
Bowden tells dick and fart jokes? Just because you tell dick and fart jokes you can't be classy?
I am all over that Freakonomics podcast...dude, I hate fridge cleaning day...such bs, certain things should stay in the fridge till the end of time: sodas, condiments, etc.
sad news for cows. Freakanomics figured out that a cow has roughly a 1 in 17,420,000 chance of being slaughtered and going to the super bowl as a ball.http://freakonomics.blogs.nytimes.c...the-super-bowl/
RIP Kentucky Kingdom
The fairgrounds needs to start kissing some ass, after Louisville opens the arena moves, why the fuck would we ever go there? The arena will be a much better venue for concerts than the fairgrounds will ever be.
Phil, you lied. [Note: The announcer at the end says you can subscribe to the Freakonomics podcast at iTunes, but that's not true quite yet. Soon, though. We'll let you know.]
the moral of the story - never trust me
Oh know you can tell dick and fart jokes and still be classy, I just don't think Tommy Bowden was a classy guy.
ESPN mentioned a prop bet. Which Kardashian scores more points on Sunday: Lamar Odom for the Lakers or Reggie Bush for the Saints?
Colt McCoy discussing on Dan Patrick how he proposed on the 50 yard line at the stadium. DP asked is it like taking a knee in victory formation? DP did everything but call him gay after that for how sappy it was.
All I know is Tom Brady didn't have to do that sappy shit.
Of course Colt's fiance is the one on the left. Have a hard time arguing with him on being sappy. DP would really get sappy to nail her.http://otrsportsonline.com/wp-conte...l-Glandorf2.jpg
http://www.bittenandbound.com/wp-co...orf-engaged.JPGAnd look at him vs. her. Based on looks, he did well for himself. Of course, you have to factor in being a star collegiate QB with a promising NFL career so that probably ups his hotness in the eyes of the ladies. Let's be honest though, he is no computer programmer like Philco nor is he the Mike Vick of intramurral football.
to back Philco, why settle for just one?
I mean really, who wants to eat cornflakes every day for breakfast?Oh wait, nevermind.
You are no computer programmer like Philco, nor are you the Mike Vick of intramural football. What do you have to offer that compares to that greatness. If I were you I would be thankful for the one you luckily found.Is that a good thing to say to get out of the hole for saying something stupid?
Is what a good thing to say go get out of the hole for saying something stupid?
In a move to one up Gillispie to be the bigger asshat, Kiffin takes commitment from a 7th grader.http://www.courier-journal.com/blog...mling/blog.html
that 13 year old is legit they say. Radio was talking about it. More advanced the sanchez and barkley at that age. Question is will Kiffin be there in 2015?
He might be legit, but there is no guarantee he will grow to 6'5". Doctors told Abby that she'd be atleast 5'11" and she was 5'8" in the 6th grade......she stopped growing.
I was told I would be 6' 5"
And yes you don't have to be 6'5" to be a QB, I was just saying you don't know how he will continue to develop.
I peaked at 13 in baseball
speaking of baseball, i went up to flanagans with trivia nick last night. we ran into this 60 year old dude that was a baseball savant. He knew all kinds of baseball trivia. At one point I asked him to name his all time team.He proceeds to ramble off the most diverse team ever:1B - Gehrig2B - Jackie Robinson3B - Mike SchmidtSS - Honus WagnerLF - Ted WilliamsCF - MaysRF - Ruth, but then he got pissed he couldn't put Aaron on his teamC - Pudge, but then asked if Craig Biggio would countIt was fascinating. When I heard Gehrig and Robinson I was ready for the old person team, but suddenly Mike Schmidt and Honus fucking Wagner? WTF?I finally stumped him - "In what major league movie did they say 'hat ball wouldn't have been out of a lot of parks.'"
No respect simply because he mentioned Biggio. Biggio will be lucky to even get in the hall.
Just got my pay stub and I am now at 8 weeks of improper pay and still no retropay.
For the record, Hot Tub Time Machine is going to be awesome.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1FnYvk6KP0
So Im selling my textbooks on Amazon, I just found out one of the books I sold, I made $5.90 on the book, cost of shipping book, $5.91...fuck. Next time, any book that is $5 is getting donated or thrown away.
Joe - how do they keep fucking up your pay?
Brent - no offense, but that is pretty funny.
You should ask them to send you a penny so you can break even.
I am running out of channels to work through to get this right. Our timekeepers and pay people work out of here and things report out of Jackson Mississippi. Some line of communication is jacked between the 2.
Do you have documentation as to what your pay is suppose to be?
I have the documentation of my promotions and the proper dates.
yeah I think I would sit in HR till they get it done.
HR is one woman and she is not reading email and office door closed
we talked 2 weeks ago and she said it would be fixed for this paycheck
I'd go talk to her and ask her what is going on? Only because she said it would be fixed.
Joe this is what you do. You go in there and tell her you need this remedied ASAP because you need the money to buy your gf an engagement ring. I bet she gets on that asap.
I recommend putting your balls on her desk

HR is part of management in our office so fucking with HR is liking pissing off management. HR isn't really beneficial to the workers it seems because of this.
That's why you dont' piss them off, you just want to get this resolved.
of course, the other thing to realize is to just keep mentioning it every two weeks but the longer it strings out the bigger jackpot one time backpay you get later.
I say lawyer up
Phil might even be able to get you a discounted rate for Elizabeth's services. I bet you could pay her in beer.

so do we know any details for cuban's birthday bash?
UL just got some 4 star basketball recruit Justin Coleman from West Virginia. Compared to T-Will in athleticism.Probably meeting somewhere beforehand on our way to St. Matthews. Times are negotiable.I have no plans today.
Scout has Justin Coleman rated 5-star #4 ranked SF and #25 overall. I know UK started checking him out a bit....good get.
Yeah, that was surprising how quickly pitino swayed him. Going back to december Arkansas and Kentucky were going after him, and Connecticut, Mearquette, Kansas, Xavier and Providence were also listed but no Louisville. Not sure what Pitino said in the past month but it looks like it worked.
Is he the one that has a buddy that could also come with him?
Maybe some big African dude?
Yeah, Dieng. Between us and Marshall for him. Dieng might not qualify because he's struggled with some of the entrance exams. He speaks 5 languages, but English is his 5th...
Dieng really did come out of nowhere. At first he just tagged along with Coleman on a visit, and suddenly every school in the country is after him. Apparently it is coming down between us and Marshall
He is a tall athletic guy, unfortunately he is built like Jules Camara.
not sure if I said this. Between us and marshall
I bet UofL since Coleman is there.
I like that coleman is listed as needing to work on "Secondary Handler". WTF?
Some of the shit these scouts put as weaknesses kill me. I wanted UK to offer Stephan Robinson the WR from Central that signed with UofL but we never did.http://kentucky.scout.com/a.z?s=48&...amp;nid=3734487Blip about him:Has great explosiveness and big play ability. Top end speed and acceleration are top notch and is dangerous in the open field. Lacks great size and could have trouble with press coverage at the next level, but looks like he could step in right away as a slot receiver or return man.Strengths:Downfield ThreatQuickness of the LineSpeedWeakness:SizeWTF, I know he is 165 pounds but he is only like 5'8"...it's not like he can control how fucking big he grows.
I think Ray Rice is gonna change how people view shorties. I think a short, stout RB is going to be the future of running backs. Look at the damage sproles is doing.They need to see the holes and hit them. Short people can do that fine. They need to get low - done! And then they can disappear behind the big linemen too. It's the wave of the future.

Peyton Manning Is a GeniusThe Super Bowl quarterback is also a huge pain in the ass.http://www.slate.com/id/2243726/Stefan Fatsis wrote the fantastic "A Few Seconds of Panic" and Word Freak. Good stuff
Peyton Manning yelling "God Damn it Donald" I guess he was supposed to release or somethinghttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VS-9...feature=related
not sure what donald brown was doing. They only rushed three so he didn't need to stay in on pass protection. With them dropping 8 back I bet he was supposed to release into the flats
Nvm, I see he was supposed to pick up that guy, just realized there were 3 rushers against 6 pass defenders, that's funny

Leading scorer TJ quick to teh bench
Jerrry hit a 3!
Pat forde commentary, "Swopshire is feeling it." The sound of that makes me laugh
Never fails, reviewing a Cousins foul to see if it was intentional.
"Another play where John Wall knows how to get fouled." I understand it but it just sounds dumb. It was a one on one situation on a fastbreak. just make the basket.
Is someone other then Wall and Cousins going to score?
Swopshire can't dunk
ran into labradford smith tonight. Porr labradford you got a bad rep.http://likemikeclothing.blogspot.co...ith-part-2.html
Cal is calling out the refs on the Cousins shit. It's just ridiculous at this point. The guy gets fucking hacked all the time. Cousins was quoted in the CJ saying this is pissing him off because every time I walk down the court I get elbowed and anytime I do anything it gets reviewed. It doesn't matter though.
Yeah, he had it coming a little bit, when you say things like, “I’m a badass. I’m mean. I’m there to cut your throat. I’m not there to be nice." I think you are asking for a little extra attention: good and bad.
I just hate it because it slows the pace of the game. How long has this review crap been around, its seems excessive, I mean they were doing it a shit ton in the Louisville/WVU game the other night.
The CJ article about this makes him sound like a cry baby.
its just not fair.
It doesn't really matter, Cousins will lead UK to the Championship.
The J_hn W_ll bandwagon has left?
Did Wes just become a Saints fan?
Anyone know anything about sump pumps? Mine sounds like there is a helicopter flying around the house. If I unplug it you hear water fall back down. My guess is there is water trying to be pumped but a clog or frozen pipe somewhere. Any guesses?
Blue Jesus Bandwagon? WTF? You best check yo'self fool.I don't think you are be on a bandwagon when the dude plays for your team.And as far as saying Cousins is going to lead them to a championship, the dude averages around 16 points and 10 boards in 19 minutes of play. No I don't hate the Saints I do despise the Colts...well just Manning for two reasons: 1) UT Volunteer and 2) The shit that went down with Eli being drafted was just low class. That was more due to Archie but at this point it is guilty by association. So I wasn't happy that the Saints won, but I was happy that Manning didn't. I guess that makes me a hater.
I was watching UofL play a little this weekend and time to give Samuels a little props. It only took him 2 years to realize he needs to dunk everything he can. I was even thinking of removing the Doug Christie jersey from him.
Samuels every now and then pulls off a nice little David Padgett hook shot with either hand that looks like a line drive at the front of the rim but goes in.
I keep waiting for the ball to ricochet and hit him in the face.
So Louisville is sitting 6th in the Big East conference. Do you think they can get enough wins to get into the tourney?Here is their remaining schedule:@ St. Johns@ SyracuseND@ DepaulGeorgetown@UCONN@ MarquetteSyracuseThat schedule doesn't look like much fun.
I think so. 15-8 6-4Win 4 of those games 19-12 10-8 in conference. Win a game in the conference tourney puts them at 20 wins. Their strength of schedule is 5th in the nation and their RPI isn't too shabby, I believe the 40s. UNLV, Western Carolina and Charlotte actually don't look like terrible losses per the RPI. Not good losses, but it could have been worse. I could see the committee taking into account the close losses to good teams and the Big East actually apologizing for the bad calls. I am trying to be optomistic.
If I am Louisville, what I am worried about is there are 7 teams that are bunched up in the 7/4 to 5/7 range and UofL is in the middle of that. So if they drop one they are suppose to win and somebody else picks one up that is when it gets interesting.
UL needs a quality win
Syracuse at home is a quality win!
Taking 1 of the 3 against G-Town and 2 syracuse games is almost essential
GT might be getting it together after beating Duke and Nova. Of course they lost to W. Va.UCONN is an enigma this year. They are 4/6 in conference.
G-Town lost to USF a couple weeks ago
i would love a UL win against syracuse
You and me both Douglas.
Freedom Hall finale is last game of the season against the Cuse. Emotions might be running high and the energy could be a 12 point home court advantage.
i'll take a syracuse loss late in the season for sure, just helps UK's credentials and strength of schedule
Joe - I know what you mean, of course I am sure the Giants thought that too before they got their asses handed to them.
so apparently antoine walker is going to play ball in puerto rico
to pay off his debt?
He's gotta do something to get some cash.
hey brent, what was the final damage on the bets?
Or maybe Antoine wants to move his apartment complex in Chicago to PR. I mean if you are going to be a slum lord by not have it in the slum?
I have no idea, I know you won $23.30 plus cents on two bets for sure but did not see any other wins.
I was wondering about the Kardashien or Katrina one that you placed. Those two could have gone either way based on my attention to the actual game.
Ok, just figured it out, you won $3.13 on Carrie Underwood, lost on Kim(5), lost on MVP (5), pushed on fan, won on gatorade $20.00. So you won $13.13 minus ($5) for the grid = net gain of $8.13....not too shabby.
They still haven't called the Katrina bet, but they did call the Kardashian comment.
not comment, im in a rush
hey brent, can you put $5 on my winning towards Slovakia to win gold medal in hockey?
21st century shooters are no country for old men:http://www.wired.com/gamelife/2010/...ry-for-old-men/
latest bracketoly isn't looking good for the big east.Last one in? Louisville. First five out? Marquette, Cinci, ND, USF and UConn. It's gonna be a battle royal in NYC for the NCAA
who all is in: CuseNovaWVUG-townULPitt
UNC is out too. that thought makes me giddy
Done. That will be a nice payday with 30/1 odds. I went ahead and put $5 for another miracle on ice.
Halák is playing fantastic right now, plus Slovakia has Chára, Marián Hossa, Gáborík, Pavol Demitra and everyone's favorite Miroslav Šatan. Betting on the US would be patriotic, but I like the 30-1 odds on those guys.
Sweden is the way to go
not a bad pick with Nik Lindstrom, Peter Forsberg and the Sedin twins, but questionable goaltending and not a good enough payoff for me to be a traitor to my country.
What is the odds with the Sweds?
pat and I are trying to figure out which women's curling team to bet on. The austrian team looked promising with the Toth sisters, but looks like they didn't qualify
You sold me on Slovakia, I laid 5 bones on them as well
WHO WANTS TO DO SOME DRINKING THIS WEEKEND? I DO NOT HAVE ANY INTERVIEWS, I AM NOT ON CALL, AND MY BOSS IS OUT OF TOWN...TIME TO GO THUNDERDOME.
Phil 1 Snowpocolypse 0
the snowplow just rolled down the street and woke me up. Scared the shit out of me and made me jump out of bed.
snow day bitches!
i'm here, we got executives in town from NY for a management meeting so there's no way they were letting us outta here today
I opened up this place at 7:45 am, it's been pretty amusing watching the tractor trailers get stuck in the snow in our lot.On a side note, I guess you should follow the expiration date on oatmeal like anything else, I just threw mine up about 5 minutes after consuming it.
Gay, Mentally Challenged Biracial Male Cheerleader Claims Discrimination:http://blogs.seattleweekly.com/dail...nged_bi-rac.php
I took the dogs for a walk and did some shoveling and threw snowballs at kids. My day is complete.
that's a wonderful thing to say at 9 in the morning
i am out of beer though
Time to hook the dogs up to pull a sled, Iditarod style.
that could be a fun way to get to kroger to buy beer
Chris, I am planning on being in town this weekend, and Chelsey will be with my mom, and I would like to go out. God, I wish i could drink.
Swimsuit issue came today!
kinda hard for me to get excited about the swimsuit issue anymore. my days of focusing on barely visible nipples through mesh tops in order to wack it are long gone.
Douglas - being married does that to you man, she is slowly beating you down. Nothing wrong with seeing hotties in bikinis. Next thing you know you won't get excited over animal planet.
snowpocolype 1phil 1snow plow got stuck coming up the hill to my condo. i am not leaving anytime soon by car
my game tonight got canceled because of a threat of ice.My buddy Pat replied: "wtf, that's like a beach volleyball game being canceled because of too much sand"
so I wandered down to the dirty kroger. The little hill up to my condo is already a death trap. Based on the tire marks in the snow it looks like so far two cars have damn near slid off the side but were stopped by the metal railing. Paint all over it.I wish I had a shovel - I'd go shovel that sucker myself. Could use the exercise anyways.
The weather is weird down here. It snowed ~4 inches from 6p to 2am, then it started to rain, when I got up and headed to work, it was snowing again. I've never seen it switch to rain in the night and then snow only during the day.
going to work at 10:00 is pointless
isn't that always the case anyway?
Delayed starts actually cause more problems in my opinion. Lets do 8 hours of work in less time and it jacks up my bus schedule and I have to wake up at regular time anyways to call and see if we are on delay and it is pointless to go back to sleep.
from Yahoo on Couaina:But he’s also the consummate “Body By Fisher, Mind By Fisher Price” player
that is Cousins
UK Football actually getting some props.http://bleacherreport.com/articles/...ntucky-wildcats
Austin's daycare was on a 2 hour delay today. I guess it's good that everybody was expecting ice. Road crews have actually done a pretty stellar job. Side streets are still jacked I am sure and Phil's hill but main roads are fucking fantastic.
I'm leaving home in about 20 minutes to get downtown so I can immediately go to lunch I guess.
Joe - where you going to lunch at?
Joe - Is Cuban wanting to do his birthday next Friday or does he want to combine it with your brother wanting to drink this weekend? Or is that like using gasoline to start a fire and should be avoided?
Phil Harris, the captain on Deadliest Catch on Discovery Channel, has died from a stroke.http://www.courier-journal.com/arti...g+stroke+at+sea
I think he is still leaning towards next weekend because he has other people he has already sold going out next weekend to.
I brought a bologna sandwich for lunch, but I am open for ideas.
We had people in Baltimore for the 3 week training that I did last year, they told them Monday night training is over early, get home however you can before the next blizzard hits. We have located 1 guy, two guys are still not accounted for.
I have my lunch here, didn't know if you were running out somewhere worthwhile.
No good plans
balls deep mail bag:http://deadspin.com/5467995/your-bl...ne=true&s=iwarning - it's a two pooper
i like that it has a halftime
i needed it. i was reading it last night and half time provided a good reminder that I needed another beer
It was too much reading
If it doesn't include pop-out pictures Joe isn't reading it.
Happy birthday to the big man JC, leader of Blue Jesus, John Calipari.
he is merely a mentor, you can not lead a leader
So how does he coexist with Cousins? Did Blue Jesus create Cousins? Will the absence of BLue Jesus allow Cousins to continue to suceed in the future?
Cousins is like John the Baptist
I see the beheading similarities except John the Baptist was beheaded, he didn't behead people.
You know why kids shouldn't have snow days...they steal your fucking bike out of the garage and scratch the side of your truck. Fucking assholes.
Cops on their way over. I called to report it just in case it was a string of thefts in the area and they said they would send a cop over.
cop laughed until he asked where I bought it and the price of the bike. He then told me we were going to do a full report and that I should report it to the insureance company.
That sucks. On the flip side, the cops weren't called out because we were drunk and disorderly. On second thought, that actually makes me a little sad.
Anyone know anything about insurance? My bike is $550. My deductible is $1000. Is it a waste to make a claim or go ahead and make a claim in case something else happens? Say I have house damage later at $1000, does the two combine towards the same deductible or are home owners deductibles per incident? Is it like auto where my rate will go up if I make a claim?
Im pretty sure your rate will go up, its not worth it to make the claim, unless of course you kept your $10,000 rolex on your bike.
the only concern is it looks like I have a ceiling about to cave in in my front room and if this would help get to my deductible I would claim it and try and get more money back. i hate this stuff.
Pitino expressed interest in the Net's job.
was about to post that, just heard it on the radio
Joe not sure what to do. Of course, the other thing is the damage to your car. Fucking kids.
i say next snow day you set up a series of traps 'home alone' style on your garage and catch those little fuckers in the act
So yesterday Abby and I rode to work together. I am sitting out front of Humana and look up and there is Adrian turned around giving me the bird. He keeps walking, so I try to call him to call him a fag but he doesn't answer. I then roll down my window with him a good 100 feet infront of me and yell "FAG!!!". Apparently, the 6 people next to my car that I was talking to them. Fun times.
Or we just take a snow day and wait in the house for those little fuckers.
the cop had me call him back if I got the serial number. I called back with the serial number and he asked how I got it and I explained the online registry of the bike and he said "that is some cool shit. Must be a really nice bike, I'd be pissed too."
Another Pitino article.http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/b..._nets_talk.html"Pitino is interested in the job," said a high-ranking team official, who added that the interest is all one way, coming from Pitino's side.
We all know the SEC owns football, what about basketball?http://blog.al.com/segrest/2010/02/...c_east_the.html
Damn the West for bringing the East down.
I hope I am out running with the dogs someday and see a kid on my bike so I can spear him off the bike and keira attacks him and Kenzie pees on him. I talked to Greg Platt about it. It wouldn't suprise me if it was one of his son's shady friends.
Or knows someone who knows someone that I can kick the ass of.Press conference at noon about Pitino I heard. My dad said his bankers at Central Bank the last time he talked to them told him that he was leaving.
can't find anything verifying the press conference
Best Jeopardy answer ever!http://kentuckysportsradio.com/?p=44103
"theres not an ounce of truth to it. I have no interest, period. I'm done with coaching pro basketball. I've put pro ranks behind me." per ricky p through pat forde on Sportscenter.
You can always count on Pat Forde to get the scoop.
Good news is I found a sump pump my grandpa bought years ago and never installed in my garage. I can only imagine the fun I can have trying to install that before this snow melts and floods the basement.
the pitino news is funny. I believe the rumor started because pitino contacted the nets about practicing in their facilities for the st. johns game.
This made me chuckle. In case you don't know, Roy Williams was crying again and made some rather jackass comments about the earthquake in Haiti comparing his team's debacle to a catastrophe and that the earthquake wasn't one because it didn't alter his life. Cal to host another telethon: Hoops for HeelsHere is the press release from the AP:--Lexington, Kentucky.Call him the Mother Teresa of basketball. University of Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari is holding another telethon for those suffering this winter. No it isn't another Hoops for Haiti but rather a telethon dubbed Hoops for Heels. When Calipari, enjoying a historic innaugural season in Lexington that has seen his Wildcats storm to a 23-1 record and even reach number one in both polls for the first time in several years, read about the great plight of Roy Williams and the Tar Heel faithful he was compelled to act."I just never compared losing basketball games to losing life before", said Calipari author of a motivational book entitled Bounce Back. Hoops for Heels will take place on Sunday, March 14 following the NCAA Tournament Selection Show on CBS and run through the play-in game held on March 16.. The delay is for two reasons explained Calipari.First most expect the Carolina faithful and Roy Williams to be at their lowest point that day as the defending national champions may not even be in line for the NCAA, NIT, CBI, or even the Durham County Rec League Play-Offs. Secondly Calipari admitted that it will take at least the next four weeks to rally support for Williams and North Carolina. The Kentucky coach will co-host a 24 hour marathon telethon to raise awareness of the mounting suffering the Tar Heels are experiencing.In leiu of cash Calipari joined by Dick Vitale and a host of former Tar Heels such as George Karl, Larry Brown, Jerry Stackhouse, and Dan Cortez of MTV and Veronica's Closet Fame will be asking specifically for donations of bottled Coca-Cola from Mexico as it made with real sugar and used point guards with any collegiate eligibility remaining.Calipari will also be donating his vacated wins from UMass and Memphis to North Carolina so that they could at least unofficially reach the 2,000 win plateau this season.In a related story, the American Red Cross is donating new t-shirts to Haitian people that reads "We don't give a SH_T about North Carolina either".
I figured Coach Cal started it so he can snag Justin Coleman and Teague.
The pitino rumor or the above story you posted?
Pitino rumor of course.
Sportscenter keeps going back and forth on whether it is a bad or good move. bad with the new arena and on campus facilities and just being #1 last year, good with the balance of power shift in KY and with the the #1 pick coming up and the rumors of the JayZ and Lebron scenario with the Brooklyn Nets
With Pitino running around all over the country trying to sign players I think that would be enough to realize he might not be looking at the nets job.Now if he had only one commit for 2010 and 2011 then I'd be worried.
and imagine if they get the #1 pick, they could have Wall as the PG
Wall, Lebron, T-Will, Brook Lopez, Yi Jahlinsdi, Courtney Lee from WKU, devin harris, josh boone, chris douglas roberts. That lineup isnt bad.
Exactly and you don't have to recruit.
So when is the next war?http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,585461,00.html
word on the street is that if they bring in lebron, he'll be able to pick his coach. So someone like Pitino going to the Nets is not too far off...
Not sure how the rumor got started, but from the link I posted it was someone within the organization that said Pitino expressed interest.
i figured Calipari would go to the Nets with W_ll and Lebron. Why else was Lebron at the UK game?
John Mayer talking about Jessica Simpson:Of Simpson, he talked about her sexual ability, and said: "That girl, for me, is a drug ... That girl is like crack cocaine to me."Kinda surprising, you think Simpson has the potential being a bump on a log because she's so hot...nice.
holy crap! just got my second chapter back from the editor of the journal...reviewers shredded it. they did not flat out reject it though which is good
it is somewhat good news, it just doesn't feel that way when you read someone shredding your work
sure wes has already seen this, but interesting take from matt jones on pitino, who swears he was going after the sacramento and NJ jobs:http://kentuckysportsradio.com/?p=44228there's the obvious UK slant, but basically mentions that with rick staying, they'll be opening a new arena with potentially their worst team in a long time (worse than this year in all likelihood), and coming right after the sypher trial, whenever that happens. probably wouldn't be a bad thing for UL if he left
Matt jones is an idiot. First, no one wants pitino in the nba. He was a jokee, and total failure. Second, matt jones is a total fool. Hung out with him on Friday. And he doesn't know his head from his ass. He is smart though, hee knows what uk fans want to hear and hee gives it to them
Douglas - I actually know one of the guys in that picture on Jones' site. And you know what, he has a degree in theater. Wouldn't have guessed that one would you?
Actually you might of, they are looking pretty queer and he graduated from Male....and we all know that Male grads are a bunch of pole smokers.
*** pretty queer LOOKING
not saying he's not a tool, i don't know the guy. he is a lawyer so i wouldn't be surprised. but if he is a tool why were you hanging out w/ him?
the only thing i don't like about jones is that i've seen a several times when stories break where he mentions he had heard about them already before, like he did with this nets thing, which only leads to if you knew about it, then why the fuck didn't you say anything
nba writer for yahoo on his twitter today talking about pitino:http://twitter.com/WojYahooNBA
I was talking about the homos in the UofL gear at the top of that post. No way I'd hang out with Jones, he is getting better about citing some shit but he still rubs some people with the info the wrong way. I get on his site to call him a douchebag.
phil said he hung out w/ him, probably at molly's, i think that's where he hangs out
If not there Joe's older then dirt after hockey
it was flanagan's. he's from around the same town as Trivia Laura. He got shot down by Laura in spectacular fashion, and then I got the band to play "Opps I did it again", from Matt to Laura.
i suppose he's been shot down before then
No, I just knew the band played a funny version of Opps I Did it again that always gets drunk girls excited. No rhyme or reason to my drunken logic. I blacked out shortly after that.Super Bowl Jamberoo. One shit worthhttp://deadspin.com/5469118/super-b...-final-jamboroo
Yeah Laura knows him and all those other retards. We were on B-town road one night and she made a comment and pointed out his law firm partner, something Bruce. I remember in that conversation I made some kind of comment about belonging to the real KSR and she said, oh they hate you guys. Whatever that means.I think Laura said she dated The Turkey Hunter for a bit, I could have imagined that though as I am sure I was drunk.
You know, that sounds about right.
So next Friday is Cuban's 29th. Douglas you going out?
i have kaelyn next weekend so i'll have to make some kinda plans
Has chris tried to get any of you all out this weekend other then the post on here?
No just the post on here.
I got a call the other day. He really wants to drink this weekend
What day is he starting? Friday?
I think he has to round Saturday morning, but he mentioned eitehr/both nights. Saturday he was going to be out with residents.
I was planning on coming out for Cuban's birthday because we are celebrating my niece's and sister-in-law's birthday on Friday. Which time is going to be more awesome you think? This weekend or next?And I think Abby works all weekend, so maybe next weekend is better for me.
Matt Jones on the local radio show today
....did he say anything worthwhile?
wasn't listening, but I am a fan of the show so I get emails about that days guests sometimes.
sportsnation is doing a posterization bracket. This is awesome.
pippen on ewing is classic.
There is a common theme of dunking on Ewing on this show
I'm gonna bet Jordan on Ewing is #1, the one where he dribbled out, turned and went baseline and kablam.The John Starks one Jordan I think is generally overrated because Michael was just getting on defensive help and didn't get there quick enough.
Amazing to think Scottie Pippen was a walk on at NAIA Central Arkansas
Phil, were you the oneI discussed whether Michelle Beadle is hot or not? She is Colin Cowherd's cohost on SportsNation.
wasn't me. I vote hot based on this:http://thebiglead.com/wp-content/up...adle_hotdog.gif(SFW)
What about Cobra Kai Beadle?http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4005..._0488a99eb6.jpg
hot dog trumpt the kai
my typing is just getting shittier and shitter
so many open layups for st johns
UL sucks. Is it time for baseball season yet.I've already started the drinking. Last night went to the FABD and plan on continuing all weekend. Next weekend I'm on call on Saturday, so that will puta little damper on my drinking. So it sounds like I may be drinking by myself this weekend since every one is old and can't go out 2 weekendsd in a row anymore.
I may be in town tomorrow, Chris. I was going to be in tonight, but then Chelsey had to get an attidude last night, so we aren't bringing her until tomorrow, unless she gets more of an attitude. Don't have kids.
Do you have a 3rd kid yet?
Memphis road trip?Jay, horse tranquilizers. Good investment.
3rd? Which one was number 2? Ha, number 2! Like poop!
Chris I might make it out tonight for a little bit, maybe long enough for a beer or two. Depends on what time I leave my brother's house. The wife is working all weekend so I dont' want to have Austin for the duration hungover.
So is it the NIT now for UofL? This game should have been a gimme.
Phil, is this dude not playing on the National team? Wtf? we got 5 large on this game?http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/news;_y...p&type=lgns
Gabby is always getting hurt. He'll be fine
How late did you stay out?
Midnight. This chick is a tough read.
I could see her being the type of girl that tells you she has a boyfriend in the military or something, after you meet her out for a drinks a few times.
Oh, she has been very clear she is single. she just flipflops back anf forth between flirty and friendville pretty quickly
Phil - don't let yourself get stuck in friendsville. If you are into the chick make a move. Fuck, you got plenty of friends.
Her: "We should go see a movie?"You: (Yeah!)Her: "There's a mantinee at 3:00 on Saturday, its the new pixar movie"You: (Fuck!)
yeah that is friendsville
I tried to get Cuban out tonight, he is going to sports and social club for jello wrestling for Mike bush's 30th b-day.
This is how that conversation should go and you can guage her interest.Her: "We should go see a movie?"You: (Oh yeah, what are you thinking?)Her: "There's a mantinee at 3:00 on Saturday, its the new pixar movie"You: (Well bummer, I am busy on Saturday helping a friend move) - see you don't say no and you look manly at the same time....(.....but I'll probably be free around 7:00 and hungry. How about dinner instead?)And that way you can tell if she is into you.
"Sports and social club"? WTF?
of course at dinner you could always just stick your dick in her mashed potatoes. That will surely cut to the chase.
the real problem is that I put her into friendville already. I need to go in there myself, and bring her out and make sure I don't get left behind enemy lines in the process.
so we are gonna launch a new homepage soon. I needed to grab a stock photo of someone. I'm in love with the one I picked:http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-ph...resentative.phpIf only I had a reason to use "sexy abacus" picturehttp://www.istockphoto.com/stock-ph...-accountant.php
Girl at work talked to me today. She heard about my bike and told her husband a state trooper in Frankfort. He was talking about how the state troopers just got the computer program linked to the serial numbers databases and he got stoked about putting something in the system so he can get notified if it is pawned or ever matched in the database. She said that he got excited about the idea of rolling into Louisville to hit up an east end high school kid for a felony of theft greater then $300 and selling of stolen goods. She told me I may be able to do a ride along if he ever gets notified. I got a good laugh and gave her the serial number. I'm not quite there on acceptance of the loss.
She's looking a little awkward right here...http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-ph...-red-folder.php
it's a heavy folder!
She's looking too Maggie Gyllenhall for me in that pic.
like Maggie Gyllenhall in the secretary?http://media.photobucket.com/image/...retary_-004.jpg(not safe for work)
Sean Sutton has issues.http://www.ktul.com/news/stories/0210/705667.html
Girl cried at work today because she gained some weight in the wrong places and mulitple people this week have asked if she is pregnant or questions similar to that.
Anyone going out with Chris and me tonight?
I might make it out tonight, depends on how long I am at my bros. Where are you guys going and what time?
Sweet, I just scored tickets for UK vs. UT tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!
how did you manage that?
The owner of the company I work for has season tix, he is 76 and doesn't want to go, my boss (his son) can't use them, so I am 3rd in line.
awesome! where are they?
oh his seats are upper level but they are fantastic seats. Row P and center court.
And then to go with his seats, he has a parking spot right across the street that he will give me too (so only have to walk across the street to get to Rupp.
If you click on section 231 or 213 that is the view from his seat, though in reality you are not as high up. The seats are pretty much perfect.http://www.ukathletics.com/athletic...ting-chart.html
only the view from J_hn W_ll's eyes is perfect
Touche, can't argue with that.So what are you and Chris doing tonight?
Apparently a luger was killed in practice at the Olympics today.
Dutch's anyone!!! Shit Fucking ball's....I haven't woke up on Phil's bathroom floor in years...years!
Well done sir, well done.
Jesus I'm still messed up
ROCK ON! 80s cover bands. Excellent V-day choice.
Holy shit UL won
So did Friday kill Cubans b-day this upcoming friday?
I would be up for Cuban's b-day but I'm fucking working
working on Friday night?
11pm until 7am the next 14 days. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Chris Guetig is the voice of Toshi's father on American Dad tonight
WHAS 11 just had a story on car break ins in St. Matthews. There have been 25 this month compared to the normal 1 per month.
huh, didnt sound like him at all
I fucking hate snow. Maybe not so much the snow but my fucking job. I want a goddamn snowday like everyone else. Either that or President's Day off. I guess I could go operate at the VA when I'm done.
I'm stuck at work too, Chris. It blows.
Yay presidents day!
i'm at work too, my car's been parked for about half an hour now and it's covered in snow. luckily my boss hates working too so i'm pretty sure we'll be leaving early.
sarah always hated working at the hospital too, no matter how bad the weather was, she always had to go in. they'd even send teams around to pick you up if you said you couldn't drive in
The only reason I woke up was barking dogs. I just assumed it was a burglar.
easy snow to shovel. My driveway is done and most roads in the neighborhood were plowed at some point so there isn't much snow on them. The only traffic was everyone off work taking their dogs out in the snow. I actually worked up a hell of a sweat shoveling and jogging.
We've got the lovely coating of ice that's now being masked by snow.It snowed once the entire time I lived in Nashville, now it has snowed 4 weeks in a row.
I tried using a gas powered blower but that didn't work.
today is a very special episode of Fresh Prince where Will gets shot and Carlton buys a gun.
i love those 'deep' episodes that made you think when you were a kid. the best ever was jesse's caffeine pill addiction on saved by the bell. changed my life
It was so seerious they didn't play the song out and the screen just went black
Anyone want to go sledding this afternoon/evening? Does anyone even own a sled? We could try biking down some hills if anyone wants to trash an old bike.
I'll buy an old bike
Don't trash an old bike I could use it
And I just want to say thank you Cardinals!Now UK should be #2 in both polls and I feel really good if we have to run into Syracuse in the tourney.
I am glad I am no longer opening up. I had to get in around 730 when we had all the other snow which really sucked when I had to go home and shovel my damn driveway. So this morning I broke out the shovel around 8, done around 845, and into the office before 945. Roads are fine now.
you feel good about running into the best zone team in the country?
I left my house at 7:15 this morning, and the roads were awful. I guy turned in front of me and his car did a 180. I just watched him as he turned his car around and went the other way.
I'm looking for the UK - Cornell matchup in the 2nd round. I think Cornell can possibly sneak a 9 seed if they win out ending the season with 4 losses. Cornell put up a good fight against Kansas and Kansas is pretty good. Cornell can shoot the 3. They are 41% from behind the arc. We saw how UK struggled guarding the 3 throughout the season. Don't look past the rest of the field looking at Syracuse.
UK's struggles against the 3 aren't nearly as bad now as they were towards the beginning of the season. with that said, UK is beatable, i'm certainly not underestimating anyone, and I still think they'll probably drop one more this year. Tennessee showed the way really, play that packed in zone that keeps wall and bledsoe from driving, never let cousins get in a one on one situation, and you have to be on point on offense. you have to be a great half court team, and never let UK play you in transition. the ability to stroke the 3 is pretty much a must as well. but i think pelphrey said it best after getting stomped, which is when UK's hitting 3's, it's debatable whether they can be beat or not. Tenn was giving UK a lot of open looks in the first half and UK just wasn't hitting, they were like 1 for 9 from 3. the main difference between the first and second halves was UK hit those open shots. once they did UT didn't have a prayer, and they played as good a defense as anyone they've faced this year
UK definitely knows how to play down to their opponent though, they're getting better at putting teams away, but there's still a bit of a tendency to let teams stay in a bit too long.
UK just hasn't been very interested in guarding anybody. Keep in mind we have had some teams come in and hit about 15 or so trey this year, and we still won.The thing is when UK clamps down on defense, it is a thing of beauty. Defense is what will win this team a championship, they just have to figure that one out. I am still waiting for 40 minutes of defense, we had 30 minutes of defense against Arkansas, and that one was very ugly.
UT played a 3-2 zone, not the traditional 2-3. UK had not practiced against the 3-2, but started taking the threes in the corner in the 2nd half where they are open against that zone. The 3-2 prevented driving by Wall and Bledsoe down the lane and always gave a +1 strong side defender on Cousins. Patrick did what he needed to do and start posting up some, he needs to do that and knock down the shots.
looks like we're leaving at 3 today
I just opened up the courier-journal and there is a picture of a salt truck with/plow overturned. Way to go jackass.
Finally finished our taxes last night so I can fill out FAFSA for school. This should be interesting.
So if efforts to curb car break ins and garage theft, my truck is in my garage with the door closed and the side door is locked. I go out to go to work this morning to drive to the bus stop and my garage door is frozen shut or broken. Either way, my garage door is stuck and the side door is locked from the inside with no key. I have no access to anything in my garage.
are you at work now?
yep. I had Laura drive me to the bus stop.
I think I pulled something in my back going to open the garage and it not budging.
I think I am still dehydrated from Friday.
Per Mike and Mike, would you rather be heavyweight champion of the world or labelled worlds fastest man as the 100 meter champion?
Friday for CUban's b-day, BBC around 8 then Brendan's or Molly's following.
World's fastest man. That way I don't get punched in the face.I just made it into work, not because roads or anything like that but just took my time getting here today.I had another 9 inches of snow in my driveway in some places because how my house sits with the air flow I get snow drifts. Two day total for about 1/2 my driveway is about 15 inches. After removing snow for the second time, I did some cardio and then came to work. Best find of the day. I love me some Taco Bueno. I think their food is a much higher quality than Taco Bell (which isn't saying much). If you go get the #9 which is a bowl of chicken tortilla soup and a hard shell beef taco. That thing is only 440 calories, and if you go skinny style on the soup (no cheese or tortilla strips) then you are at 348 calories. Add an extra taco and you have a ton of food for only 548 calories. Good stuff if you ask me.
Oh and we might get another major snow storm next week. Not the one they are talking about this weekend but next wed/thur/fri could be another 3 days of awesomeness. I am pretty fucking tired of the snow.
So girl I work with who was at Dutch's Friday asked how we all were doing. Her boyfriend was in the band. Apparently we may have been obnoxious to the band in that we were possibly loud and annoying. The mandolin player said to the girl I work with:"I looked up and there was a guy drinking out of a pitcher."To which she replied:"thats just Joe. I work with him."
Joe - Legendary in your own right my friend.
we definitely requested mud shovel. I wouldn't be surprised if we requested freebird with an emphasis on the mandolin either.
And speaking of awesome, so Austin has to drop a deuce and wants to use the "big boy" potty so I get him all situated and he tells me to leave and close the door because he wants his privacy. I can respect that.So I hear a crash and run back in there and he is reading a Car and Driver magazine or in his case looking at the pictures of the exotic sports cars. I chuckle close the door amd hear another crash. Go back in there and this time he has a Maxim magazine and he is staring at Audrina Patridge on the cover. Brought a tear to my eye. My little man is growing up fast.
that is quite touching, you must be a proud father. as a consequence though he's now never allowed around my daughter, i would feel bad if i had to beat up your sex-craved kid for trying to influence kaelyn
I am extremely proud, and your daughter is way to old. I think he has his eyes on a couple girls at daycare or the girl across the street.
Does AJ want to borrow the swimsuit issue?
Joe are we staying in St. Matts for Cuban's birthday?
that is the plan.
Do you have any clue how many of us retards are going to be out that night?
new deadspin mailbag. it's now called the funbaghttp://deadspin.com/5473071/the-dea...ow-twice-a-week
I know cuban and I will be out. Douglas I think is. There are Cuban's other friends from accounting and MBA stuff. Chris I think is on call and Phil posted he was working. Not sure who else.
I will be out until 11pm or so - not drinking believe it or not. But I'll be out.
MY GARAGE DOOR OPENED!
Is all your shit in there?
Yep. The ice on the ground freezing to the door didn't help my morning at all.
Keira had a vet trip today for hip x-rays for AKC breeding stuff and a teeth cleaning. She had an extra dose of anesthesia to keep her knocked out and she is wicked drunk right now. She just ran into a wall and then pissed herself then ran into the table walking sideways.
Women's curling is fantastic
i like to think this interaction happened between you and keirahttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-Elr5K2Vuo
Its Friday night all over again, exchange her pissing for my vomiting.
What were they chanting at the end of the game?
I have no clue, but a couple bottles were chucked onto the floor. Way to stay classy MSU.
Cousins telling fans to call him some more.http://www.wildcatworld.com/?p=7754
You know who else they did that to...Tim Tebow. Tebow scored a TD and did the call me hand signal.
I just watched the video. Tebow so did that first.
If you work until 8am and start drinking, are you starting late or ending strong?
whatever it is, it's impressive
UK's best win of the year so far
You are an alcoholic like the people working overnight at UPS.So today is Ash Wednesday and the Cathedral has masses at 11 and 12. I was contemplating going at lunch. Work schedules a training session from 11-12:30. Do you all think I should go all holy day of obligation on work's ass?
Douglas, expand on that?
I sent an email inquiry about missing training to receive ashes.
Miss St played their absolute best game of the season, at one point in the second half they were hitting like 75% or some crazy shit like that, just launching everything from NBA range and hitting it, including a bank or two uncalled. easily one of those games where you say they got all the right bounces. what i said the other day about how to beat UK, they did all that, they were dropping threes, the collapsing zone, forcing UK to shoot 3's, which they only hit like 17% of, they were making circus shots, and UK still won. where they sucked on offense they made up for on rebounds and blocks. Miss St's playing for a tournament bid at home, very hostile for UK, they took Miss St's best when they weren't playing their best themselves, and still won. that's the mark of a great team. i still say they drop another game or two probably, which would be fine, but i was more impressed with the win last night than any other win so far this season. at vandy this weekend could definitely top it though
So their best win of the season is against a team on the bubble?
yup, remember they were ranked just a couple weeks ago, they don't suck. and i should probably say i was more impressed with that win personally than any other win, although technically it may not be their "best" win. don't know if you watched it, but miss state gave them their hardest game of the year. it wasn't like south carolina where UK blew the game, Miss state played like studs last night in the second half, and UK took it and never let the game get away from them.
Mississippi State is a tough place to get a win at. I won't call it the best win of the season, but it is a solid win no doubt. State is much better at home or on the road. So far UK's best win of the season is beating #12 UT and Vandy when they were #24. Vandy was one of the hottest teams in the country at that time. If UK can beat Vandy in Nashville, that will be the best win.Of course UofL and UCONN wins look much better now.
* much better at home than on the road.
Of course, the other big stat is MSU hit 10 treys and UK hit 4. It's tough to get a win on the road when you shoot 4/24 from long range.
Abby just sent this to me on Humana. Will be interesting to see how this plays out considering my brother, wife, and sister-in-law all work for Humana.See fox 41 news alert. Letting go 2500 and adding 1100 positions to result in net loss of 1400 positionshttp://www.fox41.com/global/story.asp?s=11997358
Do you guys ever properly cite the UK boards from which you take these quotes?
If you are questioning my opinion, I am semi intelligent, therefore, can formulate one on my own. For example, I think you are a homo. No citation needed. BURN!!!!!Damn today is a slow day.
The 15 pages of analysis above that I don't bother to read.
Why would you, not like Cinci is going to play UK anyway this year.
Apparently they talked the jumper down from the Sherman Minton Bridge this morning.
I was hoping he would jump. We were discussing it earlier in the office.
Joe - that is just funny you talking about going to get ashes and then hoping he'd jump.
That is why I need to go. Perhaps for Lent I will try to be a better person. I have 2 turkey sandwiches at my desk I can't eat because of the whole Catholic thing.The whole jumping thing was because someone asked me to figure out the velocity at which he would hit the water if he was 100 ft above the water (i made sure it was in a vacuum to make things easier).
at least your math background is finally coming in handy
The nurses that think they are better then me in our office that went to Bellarmine couldn't figure it out.
When does UofL play UCONN?
2/28/09I'm going cliche and every game for the rest of the season is the biggest game of the season.
honestly for UL every remaining game is the biggest game of the season, they're on the bubble, they can't afford a fuck up. and if they can score another upset, i know they get syracuse again and i think gtown, that would be huge
Probably true for both schools. UofL trying to make the tourney and UK trying to get a #1 seed.
What the hell, training is already over. Worst scheduled training ever.
hey Joe, Ash Wednesday isn't a Holy Day of Obligation. Kind of funny because everyone treats it like it is (myself included) and then miss real holy days like solemnity of Mary, Mother of God (January 1st). I do it too, just makes you wonder how people came to view Ash Wednesday as a holy day.
i went to public school so i never knew people put ash on their heads, so i'm walking around bellarmine, a catholic campus freshman year not having a clue what's going on, i finally go up to tommy to ask why everyone has dirt on their face. needless to say he called me an idiot
You're right Barry. It is one of those days that you are expected to go but not a Holy Day of Obligation. I believe Holy Thursday and Good Friday are days like that too where you go but it is not a holy day of obligation.
That forbidden chicken tasted extra good today.
All brought for lunch was a turkey sandwich. Damn you Lent. I am really hungry. Despite my poor effort in the past at Catholicism, the Archbishop did point out that Ash Wednesday to start Lent is a clean slate, a new beginning. Maybe I'll try not to suck.
Remember not to leave out that whole, no sex before marriage covenant.
I received this email from a friend today, obvioiusly this is a sign since we are going there Friday. In a couple emails later, he told me this could be the best beer he has ever had. Can anybody confirm?Have you ever been to the Bluegrass brewing company? I had a beer from there on Saturday that was out of this world good. It was a Bourbon barrel aged Stout.
on top of the sex before marriage, the living in sin is another one. so who's moving out? who gets the dogs?
Douglas is right, you should boot her out and keep her dogs...atleast Kiera. That is one awesome bitch.
I said try, I didn't say I would be good at this whole Catholic thing.
In other words I do just enough to not come off as a complete failure to my mom. Chris she gave up on so I try to do enough to not make her feel like she was also a failure. I don't know how well that is working.
you're giving her hope for grandkids, i'm sure that's enough for now
I think we're supposed to fast today anyway so good on you for avoiding the turkey
I think hope for grandkids is still Chris' department.
you have a live in girlfriend, in your mom's head there's hope. trust me
i'm getting it bad now from my sister and mom, kaelyn's not a baby anymore and they're in withdrawal. once you put a ring on it, the women in your family view you strictly as baby making machines
Shouldn't your sister be engaged by now?
yes, she got diamond earrings for v-day, and i told her that was a cheap cop out. i think she knew that already though
Joe - wait as long as you can.
And when you don't think you can string it out anymore, just wait longer.
We are different...you guys just don't understand.
I couldn't type that without laughing
OH so Laura isn't dropping hints at wanting a ring?
I don't think she is.
Or is she just coming out and saying she wants one?Oh I bet she is, but like most men you are completely oblivious.
You may be right.Good thing is she doesn't have friends that are getting married or having kids or parents in town pressuring her. Her brother is 30 and in a 10+ year relationship with no engagement yet. Sounds like Natty Sci material. He gets the attention of why aren't you engaged yet or having kids yet. The older sibling is a good cop out for things.
I am sensing feelings of regret from people?
Wes, isn't it time for AJ to have a little brother or sister. Turn the table and the conversation isn't as fun. Anyways, this is super gay, UK basketball sucks and really shows no signs of a good win all season.
Win or lose, these close games are not good. A close game here or there is ok, but consistent close wins against much lower talent is not a confidence builder showing that they are that good of a team.
I'd love another one running around. Problem is I am going back to school full-time in July and kids are expensive. I think we might try to plan for another one for a couple months after I graduate, and then we might fill the gap with an adoption.
Parrish of CBS Sports disagrees. But that is okay, you are just stubborn.What I find to be interesting with the UK team is they aren' tforcing their will on their opponents, instead, they win playing the other team's style. And that is pretty darn impressive if you ask me.http://new.cbssports.com/mcc/blogs/...271764/20103133
For daycare alone, and AJ goes part time...we pay $6968, which is reduced from what we were paying $9828. If your kid doesn't go to daycare you still have to pay. They cost more when they are younger because they require much more personalized attention/care.
Those are annual figures. Weekly rates are $134 vs. $189.
UL's biggest win of the season

Pretty damn close, Phil.

which combos? Certainly not the peperoni ones. those would never harm you, they are too wonderful

I second Phil. The pepperoni combos are pretty good. You might have a tapeworm.

brent calls combos the ideal food for road trips and I can't say I disagree with him
Just getting ready to chime in, good looking Phil
I can't comment on Combos because it has been about 10 years since I have had any, however, I can comment on what doesn't make a nice long road trip much fun. ADRIAN.That kid was worthless when we drove to New Orleans. First of all he has to piss every hour and then he drove a whopping hour on the way there. I am not even sure I let him drive on teh way home.

nice, open mic on the replay of the US hockey gametalking about a swedish ref that butchered a game yesterday, and how even the olympics can't get it right. They are predicting a US win over Norway at 8-1 or 7-2.Now they are talking about how they can't believe they are being preempted for curling.
A midget is answering questions on reddit:http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/commen...son_midget_ama/Best part was someone asking what position worked best. He said he can do doggy style standing up.
http://www.courier-journal.com/arti...0352/1008/rss01Don't eliminate my bus!Also, watching the cuse manhandle g-town really makes me think that UK has nothing to worry about against the cuse in the tournament.
wow g-town came back
Not to sound gay, but I have a fashion question. There is a guy in our office that rocks the shirt and tie with no belt. Is this a fashion faux paux?
Gtown doesn't have any guards that can match the outside shooting ability of The Cuse, nor do they have a three than can hang with Johnson. Not a problem for UK.The Cuse doesn't have anybody that can hang with Cousins/Patterson tandem. And don't even make me break out Blue Jesus into the equation.
do it! do it!
Wes will do it after he reads his sources blogs so they can tell him what his opinion should be.
Yeah that's right, because it isn't obvious that nobody else in college basketball can take over a game like John Wall. He is the straw that stirs the drink and havoc by knifing through that zone defense. If you collapse on Wall you give Bledsoe and Dodson open looks from outside. If they dont' knock them down we win by 4, if they do, we win by 10+.
I really hope that we get the opportunity to play Kansas/Cuse/ or "insert name here" in the tournament. Right now, the only team capable of beating UK are themselves....or Devin Downey.
I think GTown would be an interesting matchup with Monroe-Cousins.
Tuesday is Samuels-Monroe. Might be worth watching.
And Cuse/Gtown game is just another shining example of what happens when you overlook someone. Cuse was practicing for Gtown and overlooking the dirty birds completely...and it bit the in the ass.
I don't think Samuels is quick enough to guard Monroe, but if it is at Freedom Hall they will get some home cooking for sure. My prediction, Monroe sidelined with 2 fouls in the first 10 minutes and picks up his 3rd foul by the 16 minute mark in the second half.
Of course if John Wall breaks his foot that could be an interesting development.
Samuels offensively has grown a pair which could lead to problems.
That he has, it is actually a good thing for the Cards that he is trying to flush everything now. I guess he really doesn't want to come back to play for Pitino.

Tiger interview live on the radio. He is calling out the media to leave him and his family alone. He also said I have a lot of work on myself.Other topics so far:BudhismPerformance enhancing drugsPaparazzi photos of kids
Has he worked in a 9/11 or death of Teddy Kennedy reference yet?
You believed in me once and I hope that you can believe in me again. I need to find my center and balance and be more respectful of the game. I don't know when I will be back to the game, but I haven't ruled out this year.
Worm, Tiger is different, he didn't pay for the abortion for the porn star and the other time he knocked her up she had a miscarriage. In her carrying of the kid she didn't want to bring it up because she actually developed feelings for him and it became more then physical and she didn't want to hurt him. there was no extortion, just true love.
I damn near shed a tear.
porn stars are very emotional creatures
To quote family guy, "Porn stars are people too, just dead on the inside."
So I had to send an email attaching a document for work to this chick and she responds thanks douchebag. Really caught me off guard
Should followed it up with a phone call that goes like "Cock gobbler, did you call me a douchebag?"
ULs biggest win of the season
Kind of cool, KHSAA website is showing the wrestling state championships live. Looks like Trinity might have it wrapped up already with out even having wrestled the finals yet. They have a guy in the final of 6 of 14 weight classes.
http://nyc.barstoolsports.com/rando...mmercial-chick/This sounds like somethign phil has written before.
So the wrestling feed was a still camera with no sound for a while of people moving mats and a random beach ball. It was entertaining. They actually have commentators now and about ready to wrestle. This is pretty cool.
lsu found a way to lose another won. come on tigers
Strong work. Barry, Joe Carr is now Woodford County's coach.
It was a loss to a very dangerous Miss St. team. They were UK's best win of the season. You should be thrilled LSU only lost by 1 to such a good team.
http://www.vg.no/sport/ol/2010/arti...hp?artid=589446Hot curler's side nip.
joe i have audio, but no video
nevermind got it
That sucks. It opened up for me in a separate windows media player window.
how are they not zooming in on Miss Kentucky?
st. x vs trinity for the state championship in one weight class. awesome.
8th grader just won state
well that was an asskickin
break his wrist!
Quit buffering internet video feed. Need to watch another wrestler from Trinity kick ass
119 Rock better not lose to a 7th grader from Ryle
trinity was won 2 of the first 3 weight classes. Trinity guy just won and jumped into the stands and crowd surfed. Awesome.
take that 7th grader
Horrible officiating...what kind of ref would call 2 fouls on W_ll in the first half!
i quit following for awhile, trying to catch the trinity matches
I haven't watched in a while either. Trinity has 3 in a row coming up next
Trinity is 3 for 3
trinity-x match up next
Boring first period.
bullshit, he didnt earn that 2
fuck st x
the takedown was bs. ah well still gonna win the overall, that's what matters
3 out of 4 with 2 guys left. Not too shabby.
he didnt need his contacts
hitchings is GOOD
did they say no one from woodford?
4 out of 5. 171 repeated at that weight class. He basically had his way with that kid. Sophomore at 215 is all the rocks have left.
They all lost. They were in 11th going into the finals.
pretty good match at 189. by the way, f-in awesome that they have an announcer that has never watched a wrestling match before
Kind of like the movie "best in show" where Fred Willard was the announcer for a dog show and had no clue what was going on. Makes for some good comedy.
That kid that just got pinned is ripped!
that was a good match, made a bad move
Bledsoe...miss it...miss it!
nice block w_ll
4 out of 6 individuals and the team title. Good day.
pinned with 2 seconds to go, damn. 4 out of 6
The soundtrack is awesome to this wrestling tourney
DAMN! I've never seen a heavyweight get scooped and slammed like that (at least not in high school)
1. Trinity (Louisville) 232.00 2. Ryle 204.00 3. Union County 129.00 domination

Well atleast we beat Vandy and ended their 4 game home win streak against us.
more on, and moron, the ex coworker of mine:http://www.courier-journal.com/arti...e+to+defraud+VA
Phil, make some sense out of this hockey set up for me, I dont know who's advancing to the next round.
When did UK - Vandy become a rivalry? ESPN radio is calling it a big rivalry game. I was unaware of this rivalry.
everyone advances - top 4 get byes.US earned a bye with the win and gets the winner of Belarus vs Switzerland. Slovakia did not get a bye and plays Norway at midnight on Tuesday. Winner plays the Swedes on wednesday.If Canada beats Germany they play Russia at midnight on Wednesday.
always been a big conference rivalry, Tennessee and Vandy are the two biggest conference rivalries
Joe - Vandy and UK are a more recent rivalry. Ever since Vandy ascended the ladder and they did hold a 4 game home court win streak against UK until we ended that on Saturday. Anything they can do to get some ratings.UK Basketball Rivalries:1) UT2) UF3) Vandy4) Arkansas (back when they entered the SEC in 1994 I believe, UK and Arky had some awesome games...but that is going back to the Cornelius Williamson and Scotty Thurman days).
Some statistical numbers for UK's defense (I pulled this off Kentucky.scout.com)"FG% Defense is 37.8%. Best in 48 years (since 1962.)3 Pt FG% Defense: 32.6% is the 2nd best ever at UK (30.1% in 1992 is the record)Blocked Shots: 7.2 per game is the best ever at UK.Rebound Margin: 10 rpg leads the nation (out rebounding your opponent is a very good defense ).Everyone talks about how great Kansas or Syracuse play defense. Looks like UK is right there with them.There are 3 teams that I think the NCAA champ will come from, UK, KU, and Syracuse.FG% Defense: Kansas 36.4; UK 37.8; Syracuse 38.4%3 Pt FG% Defense: Syracuse 30%; Kentucky 32.6%; Kansas 33%Blocked Shots: Kentucky 7.2 bpg; Syracuse 6.9 bpg; Kansas 6.5 bpgRebounding Margin: Kentucky 10 rpg; Kansas 7.3 rpg; Syracuse 3.7 rpgAll you hear on TV is how great Kansas and Syracuse is on defense; UK is as good or better."
the UK-Arkansas games during the "forty minutes of hell" era were epic, back from like 94-97. FL came on when they started having decent teams there for awhile, and Ark was only a good rivalry for a few years, but Vandy and UT have always been the top two consistently since I was a kid
what is the S.O.S. for those 3 teams?
Hell maybe so. It seems like our 11 brothers in the SEC are all rivals. We get everyone's best game each night.
Realtime RPI.http://realtimerpi.com/rpi_Men.html1. Kansas 0.6818 SOS = 172. Kentucky 0.6677 SOS = 384. Syracuse 0.6650 SOS = 11UK's SOS is hurt because UNC, UCONN, and The Ville haven't lived up to the hype.
And I'll let it be known that I don't think UNC, UCONN, or Louisville are bad teams, they just go through stretches where you think WTF? or have a ball bounce the wrong way.
Based on this RPI website, looks like Louisville is a solid in, unless they really fuck it up in the homestretch.#30 RPI, #5 SOS, 18-9 overall with a 9-5 conference record in the best basketball conference in America.
So the US beat Canada last night in hockey, and somewhere I read that is the biggest win since us beating the Soviets. Any hockey fans want to chime in?
Dan Patrick show just said Bode Miller reminds them of Jared Lorenzen in that you look at them and they look fat and out of shape and you wonder how they can do anything.
Exactly. Hefty-lefty will surprise you with his quickness.
Louisville quite possibly will lose their last 4 games to G-town at louisville, UConn at Uconn, Marquette at Marquette and Syracuse at Louisville.
how was cuban's birthday?
I think we got Cuban to puke at Dutchs. Why we went back there I am not sure. Bouncers don't like it when you strangle people. I was just saying hey to Chris. New Mollys is pretty douchy, especially the later it gets. Some bitch at Dutchs didn't like Chris sitting in an empty chair to briefly talk to us. She was with the band and was saving the seat. Suprisingly chris handled himself well and she was the problem.
sorry i missed it. i've heard that about new molly's
Douglas the comment I made was: "Wow, this reminds me of going to the bars when I was going out every weekend - a bunch of dudes out drinking in a bar".
After dutchs Laura and I were the last 2 out and we had the hand stamp so we went back to Mollys to find a guy I work with and it was way worse at that time then when we were there earlier.
If you pay $5 to get into dutchs, does the band see any of that because they were being pushy about tipping.
Being pushy about tipping?You should have put a $20 in and told them to stop.
or at least play free bird
I like to think that UK/Louisville is a pretty big rivalry. Phil, are you sure all the teams advance?
Brent I was talking conference rivalries, and you are correct it is a big game.
The football game probably means more to UK because we need that non-conference win because we can get slaughtered in the SEC, if we make a bowl we need all our non-conference games.Basketball, probably means more to Louisville program because it is considered a quality win no matter how down our program is, and they have to play the Big East teams which is the equivalent of the SEC in football.
Football is ESPNU material that outside of this state no one gives a shit. Basketball is CBS because they are both powerhouses.
Yeah you are right, but if you want to make a bowl, you need to win that game.
I'm seriously doubting the coaching skills of Mick Cronin.Is Notre Dame looking for a basketball coach?
Horn at South Carolina is a good one.
Yeah, and Devan Downey should still be our point guard.
i won't miss that little circus fucker next year
What did Matt Jones write about to piss everyone off?
Latest Bracketology with possible UK/UofL match-up in the second round.http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bas...ll/bracketology
I doubt they would do that.
Have to get ratings, why not put two powerhouses together when they can.
LDT released by the Chargers.
jones wrote about pitino on cbssports.com, everything he wrote he'd said before on KSR, basically just saying pitino's not the coach he used to be, the guy that coached UK is not who's coaching UL, that is UL fans knew before they got pitino that in his first 8 years he'd go to one final four, 2(?) elite eights, and now maybe 3 NIT's, would you have still wanted to hire him.
Matt Jones coming on 1450 next. Damn bus, can't listen to it.
Is Matt Jones a CBS sportwriter now, or did Doyel just give him a spot?
they're doing that college road trip thing, and he's written a couple articles for them on top of the blog they're doing
Any of them been worth reading?
it's matt jones. 90% of it is just shit he writes that he knows UK fans want to hear, he bolds a few words and watches the hits roll in. Same shit, different venue.
So when I go running I usually hit up Brown Park up by Baptist East Hospital. Ever since the hospital went smoke free all the smokers go over to the park and smoke there. They have even brought out buckets to use as ash trays and leave these sitting at the park. I find it irritating that the park is the best alternative to smoke. The playground now has a sign that says please use ash trays. So the other day I decided that since I am a good person and pick up after the dogs when I take them out to go running, the ash tray buckets the hospital employees put out at Brown Park is now the best place to throw away dog poop.
Damn straight Joe. If they are going to smoke, let them smell dogshit
Most of the UK fans I know think he is a douchebag.
Oh and in case anybody cares, Krags landed at A&M as a position coach (WR).

first person to go to spinellis and say beleive in me again and buy a slice of pizza wins a radio contest for 2 tickets to REO Speedwagon
Radio show live at Spinelli’s. Guy shows up with his kids after picking them up from St. Agnes and wins the tickets. Radio show host says on the air, “tickets are gone but if you are on your way come on in for a slice and a PBR and kick the ass of the guy who won the tickets. I just said that in front of his kids. Whoops.”
This place is dead.UL looked good until Freeman went off for 24 points in the 2nd half. Samuels plays like a pussy when the guy is better then him. Monroe made him his bitch.
that he did
Dan Patrick changing Bruce Pearls words and announced that Bruce Pearl guarenteed a win against UK Saturday.
I'd like to see the Cousins/Monroe matchup.
UT is a completely different team without Chism in there. Chism was in foul trouble early and then was injured in the 2nd half.
Wait a minute, who did Pearl guarantee a win against?
No one but Dan Patrick was flapping his mouth trying to get Pearl to slip up and say it.WE have a big shot coming to our office in a couple weeks and they are creating a dress code for that day so people are trying to get me to rent a tux for work that day.
jim halpert did that on the office once, didn't go over well
Good point Douglas.
Damn, I thought these people were being original.
Douglas - have you seen this picture yet?Apparently there is a "Priceless" sign made that has a picture of Cousins telling the student section to call him and it reads:Cell phone service $30.00Unlimited texting $15.00Karma in a record crowd of 10,000 losers... Priceless
Tim Tebow doing it first is priceless
Well he does walk on water.
Tebow doesn't walk on water, but he will read about and preach to you about Jesus walking on water.
Tell that ESPN.
i haven't seen it but that's funny.
Colin Cowherd discussing Tiger Woods. Basically he is saying people are being raised to be the best at whatever and end up socially inept. This is why we end up with the Tiger Woods situation because he played golf and never had a date. He said things like I don’t want to pressure my daughter to be the smartest person, I want to be able to have a conversation with her and not be paying for her antidepressants like 70 percent of females. He blows it out of proportion to things like Ted Kazynski and Paul Allen, brilliant people who are socially inept, one blows things up and the other is a whack job germaphobe. He then said, “We are sending our kids to Cornell and they are coming out whackos.” I had to laugh at the last part.
I wanted to call in and say she is not a whacko for going to Cornell, she is a whacko because she is a female and all women are crazy.
the undertaker got burned:http://www.wptv.com/mostpopular/sto...dK_H8n2AVA.cspx
I wouldn't necessarily put Paul Allen in the category of Kazynski...PA is just a nerd.
It was just a crazy rant, but my emphasis was on the Cornell part.
is anyone else all of a sudden reminded of bmac?
Douglas, you said you are flying solo to B-mac's wedding? Laura and I were checking out flights. We are thinking about flying into Baltimore on Southwest for the cheap flight and getting a car from there. Ideally Laura's parents will meet us in Baltimore from DC and loan us a car and treat us to dinner. The drive from Baltimore to Harrisburg, PA on Mapquest was something like 1 hr and 45 minutes. This is looking like the cheapest route.
I am flying solo. If you do that sign me up. I haven't looked at any flights or anything yet. Any idea when you were planning to fly down. The wedding's on saturday, so I assume we'll need to be there friday night. i'm guessing bmac will probably want to play golf or something. and i haven't heard anything about a bachelor party, so if we head up thursday we could have an impromptu one or something
Is the Cub's game thing memorial day weekend a bachelor party? I was looking at Thursday after work or Friday early to fly out. As for heading home not sure, but definitely head back to the Baltimore/DC area sometime Sunday.
I'm not doing the cubs things. i figured on coming back sunday
I am struggling with the Cub's trip 2 weeks before traveling for his wedding, on top of the purchase of the clothes for the wedding on top of a wedding gift. How invested are we in this guys wedding? I like the guy as a friend, but that is getting pricy for a dude's wedding.
US has outshot the Swiss 32-8. The US finally put one in, but time barely expired before the puck crossed the line. Great game.
Is it 0-0?
yep. Second intermission.
finally. 1-0. Parise had to really work for that.The Swiss now have to play offense. Should get interesting
the swiss just smashed into the post. no goal so far...they play on
US just scored, and it was waived off for a penalty.Looking at the Swiss goal...
no goal, no goal.1-0 still, Swiss on the PP.

Skiing question: American skier Julie Mankuso (spelling may be off) or Lindsay Vonn?Soccer question regarding world cup: Could you be teammates with a player who slept with your fiance?
in regards to part B, I picture Roger Dorn and Rick Vaughn at the end of Major League. Dan Patrick said stay on the team win a medal and choke the shit out of them with it.
The Galt House is hosting a Pumper and Cleaner expo. Buddy said "I am more of a pumper and clean yourself off bitch fan."
Of course I could, bros before hoes right?
If she slept with him she is not a good woman. He just has to undestand that when he has a fiance that doesn't mean she is off limits.
And I was laughing as I typed that out.
he should thank his teammate for exposing that stupid bitch as the evil cheating whore of a cunt that she is
I knew I could count on you Douglas.
i have many pearls of wisdom
One of the cohosts went that direction.
Of course he did, because his wife doesn't listen to the show.

i ate damn near a whole box of thin mints yesterday alone, they're better than crack
Tagalongs are my downfall.
There are only like 12 tagalongs in a box, thin mints you have 2 entire rolls. Tagalongs are my favorite but they need more in box.
they've been steadily reducing the number of all the cookies in a box though, there's not as many thin mints as there used to be, and i know there used to be more than 12 tagalongs in a box
Hell yeah there use to be, you had two rolls of awesomeness, i think probably 24 in a box at one point.
I use to eat a bag of oreos in 3 days. 1 day for each row.
used to? Why don't you anymore?
Because I haven't been buying oreos.
And I am back on my exercise kick.
I realized that I am in two weddings, Lynnie's and Adrian's and between them I am going to Hilton Head before I start school. I didn't want to be the big ole fatty on the beach.
Is it inappropriate to yell, "that is the whale that ate the Sea World trainer!" when we see you?
Colin Cowherd just referred to Target as crack for guys and that you walk in there and you can't get enough and you leave with all kinds of shit you don't need. I am guilty of that at Target.
Phil, If Slovakia and USA make it to the finals, Im in a win/win situation...I put 5 on both teams.
When is the gold medal game?
Sorry to disappoint, I am already down 11 pounds since I started on Feb. 1st.You would have been able to a month ago though.
if you drink a lot of soft drinks, just stop doing that alone and you'll drop a few right away
I only drink diet soft drinks.
Phil has a nice take on diet sodas
Sports by Brooks has something on Cousins and his medications
I quit eating out for lunch and I use my elliptical daily now.The thing that is hard for me to figure out is how many calories should I consume? I know you have to eat a certain amount to keep your body fueled to continue to burn, but I don't want to eat too many so that bad starts storing them as fat right away and at the same time I need to cut calories to lose weight...so how many do I eat?I start P90x on Monday. I might die.
Is it similar to my former boss's take? She said she'd never date a man that drinks diet soda because he is a pussy.
He thinks aspartame or however it is spelled will kill everyone with cancer. The P90x craze is killing me.
Good thing I drink diet w/ Splenda and not aspartame.I have had the P90x videos for a while now. Apparently, you actually have to take them out of the box and use them to be effective. I did the original P90 series back right before my wedding and dropped quite a bit of weight. I've done a couple of the videos and it is pretty much kick your ass for an hour. I just haven't started the program yet.
http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/h...e-85344552.htmlwhy every women should get a boob job
and what the fuck is this p90x thing I keep hearing about?
It's a series of 12 workout videos that claims to get you in the best shape of your life. Of course, you also have to change your eating habits.
You can decide which version of the program you want to do: lean, original P90x, or doubles.
i could've saved you money and just told you to get your ass to the gym and stop eating shit everyday. it's really not hard
This was cheaper.
Atleast from what I researched this was cheaper. Of course, I was only comparing it to the Northeast Y.
or just do sit ups and push ups at your house, that's cheaper
I like to lay in bed hungover Saturday mornings and watch the P90x infommercial
Well starting Monday you guys get to listen to how sore I am or how much I want to quit. Do me a favor and call me fat so I keep going.
I find it funny when certain people do things to get in shape after college. In particular I am talking about some people we played college baseball with because they didn't work that hard when they were in college playing a college sport.
I was wanting to go back and pick-up martial arts again, but when I decided to go back to school I had to cut expenses, so that one didn't make the cut.
i know he's on the p90x kick right now, he's always bitching about being sore on facebook. i think he and jen are doing it together
I read Jay is doing P90x and I think Dodson is training for the Mini and my mom said she saw someone who she thought was Kyle running the mini one year. Will Jay's knees allow him to do anything? If Kyle can train to do the mini, that is more work then he ever did at Bellarmine. Dodson wasn't very motivated in college to work hard from what I remember.
no he wasn't, jay wasn't at all. i know he's been running a lot though, he's already in better shape than he has been in awhile
i guess he's trying to lean up or something. me, i do just enough to look decent, i have no motivation to push myself very hard anymore
I've decided this will be my outlet for stress. I have to have some sort of outlet since I don't booze it up anymore.
It feels good to do something and break a sweat and if I go out and play softball or basketball I don't want to be so out of shape I break.
I'll give people props for not just going out to pasture once their college careers are over, I just wish they had some of this discipline in college so maybe we would have won some more games.
I've been doing 30 minutes a day on my elliptical and trying to watch what I eat. I dont' cut everything out completely but just trying to do better on a whole during the week. I think I've done a pretty good job.The best thing I have done is quit eating french fries, and when Abby and AJ want McDonald's I go to Arby's and get the Large Roastbeef sandwich (aka Big Montana). That thing is large and fills you up and only has 574 calories in it. That isn't too bad considering the girth of the sandwich.
Douglas, we saw the same people in the weight room all the time.
Joe what do you weigh now?
are you talking about the same people in the gym actually working out? or the ones that spent the whole time talking?
IF you are driving from downtown to home this weekend traffic update.http://www.wave3.com/Global/story.asp?S=12043239
You and I were there so we know who did what was my point about the weight room. Kyle showed up to the weight room but he didn't do shit and people like that.I'd say I weigh in the 195 range if I had to guess.
I did break 200 briefly
Did you talk to Chris Saturday after Cuban's party? Was he alive for surgery?
Diet soda has a crap-ton of phosphate and sodium. That's the real problem. It causes water retention and increased appetite.
I have spoken to him and he is alive. He apparently made it in I guess. Dynamite drop in Brock
Caffeine has also been considered to be a diuretic for years, so that would make you go piss more often. Would this balance out the water retention problem?
Something about the water in offices makes me piss all the time.
Yeah I consume atleast 64 ounces of water daily in the office.
Douglas - you going to the game tonight?
You are pissing off the water, but not the salt. I don't have any data to back up this observation, but I'm presuming the increased salt is playing havoc with the metabolism.
no, i've only gone to one game this year, the GA game, I actually got offered tickets to tonight's game but I can't fuck with these 9pm starts during the week and getting home at one in the morning. sarah works at 7am so i'm up super early every day, i'm usually getting ready for bed when the game starts
fucking up the metabolism or giving you shit with your blood pressure?
Understandable Douglas. I am going tonight simply because I am off tomorrow. Taking Adrian since he doesn't have his season tickets this year.
I did P90x for a few months last year. The thing is no joke, but way too much to ask of anyone to keep up with. It basically requires you to set aside 2 hours a day for the workouts. If you can stick with it, you will see results - I don't doubt that.I just don't think it sets you up for success.
the thing is, if you do any workout for 1-2 hours six days a week, you'll see a lot of results. what's annoying is that people are paying money to an informercial that's telling them to work out every day and eat right, and magically you'll get in shape. imagine that
Hell, if I quite going out and drinking beer and eating bar food I might be down to 170
Did I really see a sign last night that said "Superman Wears John Wall Underwear"?
You might mistake it for the Superman wears Tebow underwear sign from college gameday.
yes you did, i laughed at that one
My bad, after research it was superman wears Tim Tebow pajamas. Huge difference.
Phil, what time did you get to bed last night?
I am disappointed the olympics are overshadowing the nfl combine.
Yeah just have to stick with it.
P90x is way less cool then the Body by Jake Tower 200 with the Randy Couture 11 minute warrior workout to shred your body.
i was always partial to 'sweatin' to the oldies' with richard simmons
7 minute abs
what about 6 minute abs?
in bed at 5am
no 7. Guarenteed as good as 8 and if not we will give you the 8th minute free.
12 ounce curls
Do we need a Natty Sci weight loss/strength gain competition?
No, stick to drinking
I do not want to be at work anymore
USA 1-0 over Finland
Oh and in case you didn't know. Magic Johnson was doing the John Wall dance last night in Rupp.http://content.usatoday.com/communi...kentucky-game/1
4-0did J_hn W_ll cure his AIDs? It isn't even a dance
He will cure his AIDS when you stop hating.
magic never had AIDS, he had the HIV virus that causes it, and he hasn't shown any trace of that virus in years, he apparently takes a laundry list of drugs everyday to control it
finland must suck
anyone doing anything tonight?
recuperating from the last 2 weekends
finland got an easy draw. Their division was weak enough that they got a bye, and then got a struggling Czech team. They did win the silver in 2006 so they ain't too shitty.
drew maggary posted this about the game:6-0! YOU FUCKING FINNS ARE GETTING YOUR CABBAGES STUFFED!
I was wrong Phil, US went off at 7/1...we need a big showing by the Slovaks tonight.

good take on ash wednesday from the funbag"So I'd stumble in, all hung over from a night of Tuesday drinking – Tuesday is the night you really have no excuse to drink, but you do anyway – and then I'm bombarded in the elevator with all these little old ladies with the mark of Jesus on their head, or whatever it is. (For some reason, I had never seen this practice until I was out of college. I assumed, initially, that everyone had been working on their carburetor that morning. Someone at work explained it in full for me.) Always made me feel guilty, which is bullshit. Catholicism is about making YOURSELF feel guilty, not others. Fuckers."http://deadspin.com/5480035/sexbots...iden-poop-story

from ESPN.com:John Calipari is one win away from clinching a Southeastern Conference championship in his first season at Kentucky -- just what he was brought in to do.That's why his answer was swift and decisive when Calipari was asked Friday what winning the school's 44th conference title would mean: "Nothing."A like this now better then J_hn W_ll before the first exhibition game talking about hanging a banner for an undefeated sesason. I will admit after hearing Cal on the radio a few times, I do like him as a speaker.

Metallica at Louisville Gardens
You were at Metallica at Rupp? Who did Chris and I buy tickets from? Were we together there?I liked Godsmack shows at the Gardens
There are like 4-5 of those concerts I did not attend. I was obviously under the influence when I made that post and was making some random list.I have to say that Metallica @ the Gardens would have been pretty cool. How long ago was that?
Just like Joe at the Highland Tap Room was legendary
Just listening to the commentators I though tUK was up 15. I liked the Orton for 3 airball.
I don't care the team, I hate when players talk with the officials.
Notre Dame got bettter without harangody
What is going on with UK?
Refs don't want to call a charge at all this game
I'm seconding that last statement
They are calling fouls on TN before John Wall even shoots the layup
Not being biased, this is just an ugly game to watch so far
I didn't realize there was another player on the court besides J_hn W_ll based on the commentary.
Quit blowing the whistle both ways. This isnt the big east.
There is the charge
My parents just called me to complain about how lopsided the officiating is and my dad is very impartial about college basketball. My mom kicks him out of the room during UL games.
Pearl works the refs and tehn a block is called on Wall? This is horrible
Prince was tired of getting hacked so the only answer was to go with authority and dunk it.
Miller is hot
UK ties the game at 65 Miller blocks the fast break layup, grabs the balls, controls the ball...then drops the ball off his leg and out of bounds.
I think joe is bored of actually talking to himself and has moved on to talking to himself via the sci.
either this or fix a sump pump

It was a long time ago, the show went into 1 am, it was the And Justice for All tour if that says anything...Im pretty sure I was in the 6th grade and lied to my mom about where I was that night.
that album came out in 1988
Yeah, that's about right...saw it at Louisville Gardens with my friend Jeremy Boyd...I remember it was pretty awesome, during the show Lady Justice was built up and then it was destroyed...everybody went nuts when they played One.
fuck I forgot to write about my near fight at the park. I was running the dogs and dropped the poop in the "ash tray" that baptist east workers put out at Brown park since the hoospital is smoke free and a guy confronted me about it. He asked what i did and i said I put garbage in a garbage can. he said it wasn't a garbage can and was questioning whether it was poop. I said explain the garbage in there. in the meantime kenzie pees on the "ash tray." the guy gets angry and keira goes ape shit barking and growling at him. Basically I tell the guy I have all day and do what you want but I am just cleaning up after my dogs in a city park, where did I go wrong, you got a problem call the cops. The guy is scared shitless of keira going apeshit barking and showing teeth protecting me. I finally say I am going to finish my run and if you want to continue this you can run with me but based on the cigarettes I'm guessing that is a no. he says he has to go back to work. In the meantime Keira then takes a dump and I put it in there as well. I think there may be a bounty on my head at Baptist east amongst the smoker.

So I go to a wedding last night and when we get there they have 3 beers on tap, Budlight, Coors, and Sierra Nevada. I am thinking, not bad, so I start out the evening with SN. I only had one of those as it went fast (I think it was a keg they were just trying to kill off). Move onto Budlight, that fucker goes fast, and then it is on to Coors for the final evening.I learned they ordered 2 kegs of Coors and 1 Budlight. I believe my comment was just because the reception is in the southend doesn't mean we have to drink like it.
the side of the olympics we don't get to see, an emergency shipment of condoms sent to vancouver:http://www.cbc.ca/olympics/blogs/po...c-athletes.html
Went for a run this morning and noticed that another dog shit next to the "ash tray" at the park. Apparently after 1 dog marked it they all want to mark it. I appreciate the owner that left the turd there.
AMERICA! FUCK YEA!
I just read somewhere OT doesn't count and all bets were final. In Vegas to win you had to bet tie.
this sleep shit is getting old
So they are making a group of us do this new thing called a "10 case review" to test the quality of our work to see if we are good enough to be release on our own and not need a second signature reviewing all our work. I ask if there is a pass fail percentage and they wouldn't give me a definite answer to my question and said pass/fail is just a judgment call. This sounds like a well thought out plan that is going to suck.
A set of 16 curling stones cost $8,000 according to CNBC correspondent on the DP show and they come from some place in Scotland and are some certain type of granite.
How much for the broom and the shoes?
Ndamukong Suh works out today ... Check out camera 2 on nfl.com
DP show just said: Contrary to other reports, Tebow ran his 40 on land not water.
I have to say Tebow looks like a man on a mission there. And what's up with LeFevour not throwing? He did run the best 40 time in the QBs though, 4.53 if I recall.John Conner, UK's FB ran a 4.72....and he is 250 pounds. That's kind of scary.
I watched Conner run and They said he weighed 240
Either way he moved well from what I saw
He must have shed about 10 pounds. UK had him listed at 250 I believe.
Pretty good article on Cousins, and yes a UK writer wrote it.http://kentucky.scout.com/2/949902.html
Jeezus ... some of these guys are taking FOREVER to get set up to run
Micah Johnson put up a respectable 31 reps on the bench. The big offensive lineman from Arky, Petrus, is leading the combine with 45 reps.
Spiller ran something like a 4.28
FYI...Cuban and I both took off the Thursday and Friday of the NCAA tournament first round. On a side note, St. Patrick's Day is that Wednesday. We both felt that it would be a good time to be off work if anyone wants to join us.
Hmmm ... Micah Johnson went 4.99 and 5.00 in the 40. They called him a "plugger".
Joe - I might join you guys.
Wow, I would have guessed Micah would have ran around 4.8.He should have bulked up and been rushing from the end regardless.
I just ran into Adrian and had a conversation with him about him running the Triple Crown. I think we forgot to finish the conversation and it abruptly ended. I kind of want to go laugh at Adrian while he runs the Triple Crown.
Josh Hull from Penn State is rockin' out a great porn mustache.

scott long is dominiating the WR position in the combine. Top 3 in almost every category. He only ran a 4.46 40 though, and was 4th in the broad jump.
this place is dead
all kinds of sirens near my place have been going batshit randomly for the past 20 minutes. I don't think they are tornado ones. My only assumption is that the germans are bombing us.
First tuesday of the month they test sirens, but that its usually at noon. They just had a test on the radio of the tornado warning.
Per DP Show:Talk of football being recognized by the Olympics as a sport. Just think if it was an Olympic sport. All the other countries have all the kickers. Norway would kneel the ball 3 times and kick an 80 yard field goal.
i assuming that was sour grapes from the hockey loss?if we really wanted to piss off the world with hockey, we have to some how convince inner city kids that they are far more likely to make an NHL team than an NBA team, and then give them the equipment to do so.

honestly when I heard the sirens I was pissed that I slept until noon again. Then I realized it was like 10am and I was confused, especially considering the sirens were different
Hitting Coach Lets Out Long, Melancholy Sigh Before Working With Pitchers On BuntingJUPITER, FL—Florida Marlins hitting coach Jim Presley massaged his temples with his left hand and emitted a deep, sorrowful sigh Friday when he realized he would have to spend two hours going over bunting with his team's pitchers. "All right, let's just get this over with," said Presley, who spent much of the practice shaking his head in disbelief and wincing from frustration. "How is it that you're all professional baseball players, but you don't know how to do this? Move up in the batter's box and square yourself off. And make sure you thumb is out—oh, boy. You're going to have to get that checked out." Presley was reportedly in high spirits afterward when he watched infield coach Joey Espada work with the pitchers on throwing to first base.
Nothing beats PFP...Pitcher's fielding practice.

UL is on the U at 9:30. I hate ESPNU because I don't have it. Do I have to go to a bar tonight?
shit. i bet the rink doesn't have ESPNU
The U is bullshit

I am speechless on UL's performance.
was it really that bad? I don't the U so didn't see it, and i cancelled my newspaper subscription so i haven't seen anything on it...
Horrible display of basketball. Lost by 21. I stayed up and went to my aunt's house who has the U to watch it. I regret it. I don't think anybody on the team even cared, including Pitino. Pitino put in lineups of guys who haven't played together all season. Kuric started. I think it is too late in the season to expirement. Samuels was shut down by guys much smaller then him. It was a simple offense that confused the hell out of UL. 4 3 point shooters and a guy in the lane. hit the high post and all 5 UL guys collapsed on him and then there were 4 wide open shooters left for the wide open shot. It was embarrassing. My 7th grade cousin was pointing out this stuff it was so obvious.
I was joking around the other day and I discovered that the goldfish I have will let you pet them.

we are working on getting local breweries to sponsor our new hockey league. I'm pushing for them to contact Falls City. Who wouldn't want to play for that team?
Phil, did you know Falls City was back? Apparently, Falls City Brewing Company is open again back in 11/09. And there are a few bars around that are serving it again. It says they have taps too. DRAFT FALLS CITY BEER...FUCKING AWESOME!!! I KNOW WHERE I'M GOING DRINKING NEXT.http://www.fallscitybeer.com/Master/Master.aspx
I saw it when I was looking for breweries. Looks like the JoTD has it. So does the bar by the railroad tracks out by work, Selena's.
Supposedly the original, better recipe, too. Of course it's at the outlook inn as well.
And Duke goes down. Great night = UK win + Duke loss.
Best win of the season how they came back from a devastating loss and beat a Georgia team on the rise. I'm proud of us. Georgia is a Final 4 potential team with the talent they have in their players and coaches.
Joe - There is no room at our table for Louisville fans.I will say that UGA beat Vandy and UT in their place when both were ranked opponents.Here's a nice article that highlights that and has some compliments for the CATS.
http://www.onlineathens.com/stories...570425166.shtmlwould be nice to link the article I suppose.
Douglas - Here are the game highlights from ESPN. Not sure if you saw Cousins leading the transition but the big man is talented at 6'11" and 270 pounds.http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/recap...ameId=300620061
yeah, he was the point guard on two different possessions, both easy baskets, i was loving it
i do hope UL gets itself another signature win this year in its last game ever in freedom hall. i really hope they give that arena the send off it deserves
If Syracuse loses to UL then comes back and wins the Big East tourney I bet they are still the number 1 overall seed.
I tried watching the game but Wave 3 had a conspiracy against UK. I bet the head of the network is a UL fan.
Girl at work walks up to me and asks if I will be at Dutch's Friday. I ask why. She says the White Russians are playing. My response was who are they. She says the band that was playing when you and your friends were there. Oh, them. We'll see, my friends and I down make plans well in advance.
I think there should be a limitation to how often you can go to Dutch's, and I believe I used my quota up by going on back to back weekends.

if syracuse loses to UL and either kansas or UK wins out their tournaments, one of them, kansas first, would get the overall seed. syracuse has two home losses, KU and UK have zero. for lack of a better term, their losses are 'better' than syracuse's. the best place for UK to go is st. louis, if kansas is #1 they'll go there, the second best place is syracuse. obviously syracuse won't go there, so if syracuse has a higher seed, UK still gets their second best option

Michelle and I went to the neighborhood pub last night to try out the new New Belgium seasonal brew, Mighty Arrow. Its pretty decent.We decided to stumble across the street to the speak-easy type billiards hall to check it out. Just like I expected. Smoky and a bunch of pool tables. Have you all noticed since most bars went smoke-free that when you do go to a place that allows smoking, that you have much worse hangovers from drinking the following day?
We have to do a walk-through of our condo this afternoon since they've done the restoration after the flood. I snuck over there last night to check it out. Am I being an asshole if I point out that the crown molding is a little off and I can see the joints?I figure the insurance company is paying for all the labor to repair the damages, so it shouldn't be any skin off the contractors' back if I want things touched up or reworked.It is obvious that the attention to detail on the restoration work is not going to be as high as when the place was built, but they did pull all the ceilings and most of the walls down, so its not like they didn't have a chance to get it right from the start.

It came down to the last mile but Adrian was able to edge out Lynnie for 2nd place Sci Honors in todays Anthem 5K.Here is the play by play of my race...held back as much as I could, was letting a hottie pace me the first mile that kind of looked like the face of MaximumAsp.http://connect.garmin.com/activity/26212901
I accidentally bet $25 on the over (145) for the Syracuse versus UL game...also put $25 on Syracuse as they are 1.5 point favorite. I would like to see UL pull out the victory but beating the team twice in the season and Syracuse is playing for #1 overall...sorry dirty birds, I just don't see it happening.
any word on their times. I should have run.

Good one Brent.

Yeah the LA Marathon, actually set a course record, not bad for my first marathon.
whoops first professional race, not first marathon
Good job Brent...after the race, I did forget to mention to you that I ran the race backwards and blindfolded, so I guess my time wasn't so bad.
There is the answer: Play more white boys!
Wow! While the game was over for most of you...I was on the edge of my seat yelling and screaming for free throws and shots to get the over...Thank you Kuric
Freedom Hall was crazy today.
UL has the 9:00 game and if they keep winning they keep playing at 9:00. Hopefully I don't get to sleep next week.
I plan on watching as much basketball next week as possible and drinking as much as can, too, since my bosses are going to be out of town. If anyone wants to join in, let me know.
Best game ever. If I had DVR'ed it, I'd be watching it again now.
After UC poops all over the floor against Rutgers/Providence, I'll be rooting hard for a WVU-UofL Big East finals. The Big East is almost more ridiculous than last year with depth because there are less superstars and more "teams."At least the NIT will be interesting to watch this year with UConn, UNC, and UC. I bet South Carolina makes it to the NIT with that Vandy win too.Can you believe Cincy beat potential ACC champ Maryland and SEC runner-up Vandy on back-to-back days? What potential... crap-factored all over the court.
damage report for my condo is shockingly low
interview with Kuric someone said you will never have to buy a drink in Louisville again. Kuric responds "that won't be a problem."DAmage report? What damage?
well, I just assumed I made a mess when I got home last night. I knew I had made myself some pasta, so I just assumed the worst when I woke up.
ESPN showing something on the Rae Carruth shooting of his pregnant girlfriend and the child born by emergency c-section from the dead mother and how the kid has cerebral palsy from the oxygen cut off when his mother was shot. This story is a downer.
I just read a yahoo article referring to Kuric as a one man wrecking crew. I think that name will stick.
Kuric didn't get in the ESPN top 10

What happened to UK?
I was watching and they were up big then I turned it back and it was a 6 point game. Did they play bad or Florida play good?
hey chris, it isn't a copy of the game but here's AnVillen's 8:00 highlight real http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zevk...player_embedded
I am going with my dad to the Yum Center today for a UL scrimmage and meet and greet thing through Central Bank. Should I take my ticket stub from Saturday and go for the Kyle Kuric autographed game ticket?
could be a decent little souvenir if you did.
Obligatory "this place is dead"
Joe - UK gets bored and they start doing crazy shit. The typical UK game is UK gets big lead (15+ points) in the first half and they can't live with just ramming the ball down their opponents throats so they start shooting 3's or everything is trying to be an alley oop dunk to to make the highlight reel. Basically, they go away from everything that gives them the lead.Speaking of highlight reels, did anybody see the Morehead State-Murray game? There was one unreal block where I believe a Murray player was on a fast break dunk and the Morehead player meets him at the rim. I swear the guy that was trying to dunk the ball had the ball around the white square or so I thought and he was met about 6 inches from the rim from flushing it.
Joe - This was the UK game in Doyle's words.http://www.cbssports.com/collegebas...headlines;other

Anyone making the road-trip to Owensboro this weekend for the Bellarmine games in the opening rounds of the NCAA DII tourney?
Yum Center is awesome. Practice was interesting to watch. Didn't get an autograph. Rick said Jerry is out for the big east tourney and gave a nice recruiting run down over drinks and hordouirves . A walk on transfer from Manhattan, Chris Smith i think his name was, JR Smith of the NBA's brother is a freak athlete that needs to learn basketball per Rick. All and all good experience.
Kuric was in the gym by himself shooting when we first showed up, I only saw him miss 2 shots in 45 minutes.
Took keira for a run and the that is a major chick magnet. If you pull a Barney Stinson and get a dog and teach it one or 2 tricks you can hit on girls well I bet.
Joe - you don't even have to run with the dog. All you have to do is get a fluffy dog and take it to the park. Before AJ was born, I took Daisy to Tom Sawyer and there was some college cc event going on up there. She and I are just strolling around and the next thing I know is I have about five cross country chicks that are all pretty decent looking all over her. Dogs are definitely chick magnets.
Chris - I think you should work here.http://www.doccafe.com/jobs/physici...campaign=IndeedAnd just think, you could be the sports doc for UK teams.
Wes, are you really trying to find a job for me? Do I owe you a percentage like an agent if I end up there? Do you really want me, a die hard UL fan, taking part in UK sports med? No, Mr. Wall you just sprained your knee you don't need surgery, while it's really an ACl tear and his leg falls off when he tries to dunk. Hopefully you just found that while looking for salaries for PharmD positions. Anyway thanks for looking out though.
How about two tickets for each home game and we call it even?Yes, I just stumbled across it while searching indeed.comAt least you'd get to work with a lot of future pros.

yeah, but he can have his pick of the litter from every girl at UL that's below a 7 or 8, guaranteed. plus, it's the sum of all girls that counts, so if he lands two 5's, that's still like nailing a dime piece

Well, UC did everything in their power to lose that game. Too bad Rutgers is more terrible. Tomorrow could get ugly.
that was the best thing to happen for Louisville. Playing vs UC is far better than Rutgers. UC has a name, which means Louisville may try.Trivia Nick and I were talking about the seading. One of the latest brackets has Louisville playing UTEP, another had Louisville playing Northern Iowa. Louisville would get SMOKED by either one of those teams. Louisville would be better off being a 16 seed than a 5 seed at this point. Gotta be the underdog, or they'll get beat by 35.

Chris - Are you okay buddy?
that was classic
Just another reason why I am a John Wall fan."Coach (Calipari) talked to us about it and said he would put one of us up for each award and see who wins. We both played great during the SEC (season), and we’re happy that both of us received an award. I’m not upset that he (DeMarcus Cousins) got Freshman of the Year, and he’s not upset that I got Player of the Year. We’re just happy for each other.”
Brock - I was all set to give you some condolences on last nights games, but apparently that band of assclowns which don the UC jerseys won. What I was going to say was I understand the frustrations when your team has wide open shots that they cannot convert. Frustrated me for the last couple years with UK, and then this year happened and I realized we just didn't have the talent. It is nice getting back to the talent level that you are suppose to have each year. Aside from Stephenson and Gates not really sure who all is worthy of the UC jersey.
I can confirm he's alive, probably feeling like a million bucks.
Is he working today?
i think the baberuth comment was my favorite
i liked the question about lynnie's bachelor party. it seemed very casual and randomly off topic for a drunken sci post in the middle of the night, especially when you read what came before it
What was the Ole Miss Sports Medicine comment? That may explain the annihilated drunk status.
I am guessing he interviewed there and he didn't get the position or he did get the position and realized he is moving to Mississippi for a year. In fact, I'd almost bet on the latter due to the copious amounts of alcohol consumed. There is nothing in Mississippi.

I am tired of Samardo
Low man wins in basketball? WTF?
Seriously, they said Samuels has been playing low and the low man wins in basketball
Samuels is a fucking pussy
announcers are horrible
So is Cincy so you will be fine.
If I am going to stay up this late to watch basketball I don't want crappy announcers giving me a headache
I think halftime has been longer then the first half
Sosa drops 20 and still finds a way to completely redeem himself

Really, guys practice intentionally missing free throws?
Why did I stay awake for this shit
Wow, talking about a complete 180.
They still get in the tourney.
even better, if they get in the tourament it'll be an even worse seed Ideally it'll be like a 15 seed so they can play nothing but top 10 teams the whole way though.First chance to play a shitty team and Louisville will loose by 58
Moving day. Movers, never use anything else.
it's true, once you've used them you'll never go back
what the fuck? chuck norris is 70?http://www.nbcdfw.com/entertainment...s-87269827.html
I think at large teams get no worse than a 12 seed if you come from a power conference.
I am guessing UofL gets a 9 or 10 seed.
First of all, I am alive and well now. Yesterday was a fun day at work though. Anyway, both of my attendings left town yesterday and won't be back until Monday so we went out celebrating our mini vacation. But as a little fuck you to us from our faggot ass attending , he scheduled a case for us while he was gone. So in a drunken stupor I decided to get online and try to bitch about it, which obviously didn't work out so well. The Miss Sports Med comment somehow must have been an old cut and paste. Moral of the story drinking on a Tuesday night in Louisville is rather boring which leads to lots more alcohol cosumption. Starting the night with a power hour probably wasn't the best idea either with shots 1 and 60 being bourbon.
Glad you are feeling better buddy. Enjoy that mini-vacation because hell will return soon enough.How many more days do you have on this rotation?

GT up 4 with 3:56 to play on Cuse.
GTown up 85-81 with less than a minute to go.
GTown wins 91-84
nice, that solidifies the #2 overall seed
Are you saying Syracuse falls to a #2 or GTown comes up to a #2?I don't see Cuse falling.
i meant UK getting the best spot they can and no one getting in front of them that's not already there. i don't see cuse falling, but with cuse losing, even if UK loses there's no shot at them losing the #1 seed, not that i was real worried about it anyway
just makes the SEC tournament that much less important
Oh okay, I see where you are going with that now.
to be honest i'm actually not really expecting UK to win the tourney, especially now. i can see them letting up against any of the several bubble teams that are playing for a lot more
texas tech is coming back on kansas, 2 point difference w/ like 5 mins left. if kansas loses, then scratch everything i just said, UK will play their ass off if they can get the #1 overall seed
I'd rather play Bama than South Carolina.
I am sure if UK wins it all this year then the NCAA will come back and say Wall and or Cousins did some shit to strip it. Just trying to keep a brother down.
texas tech is a cock tease, fuck them

NCAA would never strip a championship team, no matter what the NYT may publish
You never know what the NCAA will do anymore. The cleared Rose and then after the season was over ruled him inelligible...WTF?
Too much money involved for them to vacate a championship. CBS would flip their shit if they spent $500 million dollars for that.
I call bullshit. It's not like the fans would demand their money back. Money already exchanged hands, no refunds.And Bama came back from being down 15 and lead USC by 1 with 15 seconds to go.
Looks like Bama is going to advance, up by 4 with 6 ticks to go.
They can't even fuck it up and foul Downey on a 3 and lose it now.68-63 with 6 seconds to play.Thank God. I didn't want to play the circus midget again.
god i'm glad that fucker's gone for good now
it's not this season they have to worry about, it is marketing for the next and upcoming seasons.
clay travis has a funny series going where he is playing in a tecmo bowl tournament in Wisconsinhttp://ncaafootball.fanhouse.com/20...bits-at-a-time/
I don't think it really matters to be honest.
Anything going on for Velardes b-day tomorrow
the big east is a clusterfuck
Let's go back out to the St. Matthew's bars, we haven't done that in a while. Kidding about that, but I'm still reveling in my mini-vacation so I'd be up for something even if we celebrate without Lynnie.Also set up a yahoo bracket for us if anyone wants come Sunday.Natty ScicrazedbuffaloIs anyone interested in a fantasy baseball league?
Being a UC fan, losing on a last second shot at the buzzer no longer bothers me. Its expected. I've seen so many bullshit, hail-mary, eyes-closed shots that cynicism just doesn't cut it.
Yeah but the worst part of it was you had the ball with 6.1 seconds left and the kid loses control and gives WVU the ball with 3 seconds to go on their side of the court.
a girl sent me a text last night saying I should drive down to lexington to hang out with her last night. I told her it was too far of a drive.So she replied "Just kidding, I sometimes ask people stuff like that just to get a reaction." One minute later: "But seriously, I wouldn't mind the company"
That's great stuff Philco.
it was right out of dodgeball.
Yeah very White Goodmanesque.
huh, looks like 30 Rock and The Office had new episodes last night
the SEC was just on regionally in the US
According to Stephenson, Butler even called Bank when he shot the three
IT'S HAILING SIDEWAYS!
UK down 35-30 at the half. Reason being, not hitting the glass. In the 2 games that UK lost, we were out rebounded. Bama winning rebounding edge right now 26-16 and they have 10 offensive rebounds in the first half.
Uk finally decided to start playing, that's nice of them
i can't watch the game, but according to the radio, it sounds like they just came out flat like they don't have anything to play for (which they don't really). i guess cal jumped their ass at halftime
I'm not sure where CNN is going with this picture.http://www.cnn.com/2010/TECH/03/12/...dex.html?hpt=C2

I'm flipping back and forth from the big east game to the sci fi channel to watch Dinosharkhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt1545986/it just ate a water polo team
Outside the Lines today is about ex UK player Winston Bennett and his sexual addiction
Bellarmine basketball won yesterday in the first round of he tournament
I'm rooting for OTS and the Golden Gophers knocking off UK in the 2nd round.

Is this game the #1 overall seed vs a team not even in the tourney?
I think Orton may be retarded
UK is down 5 and ABC just did a UK montage? I think they want UK to win.
Did they just say Dodson is the key that they needed for the run to a championship?
they said the 3 spot with the miller/liggins/dodson rotation is a major key, yes, and they're right. they get a good bulk of their threes from that spot
with kansas winning yesterday, this game means absolutely nothing to UK, they've already got the second best #1 seed locked up, miss st is playing to make the ncaa tournament though
I'm surprised cal is even playing their starters. Looking at UK you can tell they arent trying, so maybe they are taking it easy to save their legs or prevent injuries
meaningless comeback. If anything overtime will tire UK out for the NCAA tournament. I texted Phil that the foul was a dumb idea for MSU right when it happened.
my strategy would have been valid in a game that meant anything for uk.
UK looked like they needed som more game reps. That is the reason for sending it to OT. Also, some guy at BW3s wasn't ready to leave.
My dad just called asking why the refs won't call a foul
I would have let Mississippi State win to validate the conference and let another SEC team in the tourney.
Great quote Cal, "if we are the number 2 team then what are they?" They still aren't in the tourney. So are you all really the number 2 team then?
Parking Wars is a funny show
I thought it was more of a jab on the overrated Big East.
Everything i've read is listing G-Town as a 2 seed. I don't see it.
http://www.kwcpanthers.com/sports/2...0605.aspx?id=27live stats for Bellarmine game at 6:00
UK got screwed.
Tennessee only a 6?
duke? are you fucking serious. west virginia got screwed
Duke as the 3, Cuse as the 4. I wouldn't have complained if Ohio State got it over Duke either
Murray over Vandy...I'll take it.
Was that Cal's house or J_hn W_ll's house?
Everything about the selection show seemed disappointing
UK vs WVU could get ugly. Huggy Bear might kill someone in that game.
I can't wait for the NIT selection show on ESPNU @ 9p.
UK's bracket is alright, but kansas seriously got fucked as the #1 overall
hell duke got the easiest bracket as the #3 overall when it's debatable they deserved it
I agree. KU better bring it
#2 seed for the Bearcats! Finally, a postseason appearance.
d-r-u-n-ktomorrow i'll have the tournament challenge shit posted. question: we play for bragging rights or do we sack up and buy in at $10 a piece?
I like that when they said nice things about Louisville on ESPN it is immediately followed up by high praise for Siena has dark horse teams. C-A-R-D-S!
I'll go in for some dough.
I'll thrown in some cash, it's just coming right back anyway.
I agree with your dad Joe. I shake my head every time Vernado gets a block and he makes body contact. That is called 90% of the time in the college game except when he does it.
UT got hosed as a 6. Here is what they are saying, UT was ranked 13th before UK handed them their asses. Now they are a 6 seed? 6x4 = 24?How UT responds will be interesting.
Oh and UL beats Duke. Write it down.
I actually agree with that, but if I were a UL fan, I'd be more worried about Wake than Duke. In all the analysis I've watched, everyone seems to be penciling in a coach k / pitino matchup, and UL doesn't seem to fare too well in the games they're supposed to win.
i just realized i said wake, i meant cal
UofL will destroy Cal.
Basketball Prospectus on the tourney.http://www.basketballprospectus.com...p?articleid=992#1 LoserKentuckyI know the conventional wisdom is that Kansas has the toughest bracket and I'll grant you that the Midwest is brutal. But the Jayhawks are, or should be, big boys. They got to the Sweet 16 last year, brought everyone back, and added Xavier Henry. Kentucky, on the other hand, is like Kansas last year. Just look at all those callow, albeit talented, youngsters. And look what they got. For starters a potential second-round game against a team (Texas) ranked number one in the nation earlier this season. Then a likely Sweet 16 collision with Wisconsin, which outscored the Big Ten by almost as much as Kansas outscored the Big 12. And then finally a regional final against West Virginia, winners of the Big East tournament. (Not to mention lurkers like Temple, Marquette, and Clemson.) John Calipari's players better grow up fast.
i've been hearing that they're too young and they're too inexperienced crap all year, so have they, just adds fuel to the fire. if they lose in the tournament, it's not b/c of inexperience, it's b/c they're packing the lanes and forcing them to shoot 3's, and they're not hitting. if UK is hitting 3's, they don't lose, period.
Every big east team will lose first round except for Syracuse and west Virginia
