Soddy-Daisy native Kelsey Nunley, UK's sophomore pitching phenom, won three games in the SEC softball tournament, leading the Wildcats into the championship game, which they lost to #3 Georgia. The 15th-ranked Cats have won 44 games this season, most ever for the program, and now they enter NCAA tourney play.
In the SEC tourney, Kentucky beat #13 Tennessee and # 20 LSU. Nunley is now 6-0 in postseason play.
Texas A&M students won the weekend when Johnny Paycheck bought them $2K of booze to celebrate the draft. But the drinks he chose, Fireball Whisky and Miller Lite, prove once again he's a punk. By 40 he may be a man, but that's in some doubt.
And Marshall Henderson lost the weekend while hurting his eventual NBA paycheck with his ignorant anti-Sams tweets. We knew he was impulsive and hot-headed, but how big a contract will a team risk on a ticking timebomb? (There's still a bit of anti-gay violence, but MT and jomo make a fair point that much media coverage was overboard.)
Hands down winner of draft night? Brett Favre in jorts. Did you see the pic from his draft night? And Jay's winners and losers are good, too.
Blazing Saddles is good, but is it much better than Young Frankenstein?
And when UK pays a Calipari assistant $1M (two years), does UT have to raise their ante?
Jay--Unfortunately for The Vols they added a 3-star at the position they'd already recruited a 3-star, so he won't be as much help as he could've been. Gotta start somewhere, but UT will need some 4-stars to play with the big boys.
And J. B. was a UK golfer.
Was Floyd Mayweather Andy's barber?
I have trouble calling them the BROOKLYN Nets. Can we call them the New York Nets? Reminds me of the messy Anaheim Angels at Los Angeles team.
The Learfield All-Sports Trophy standings have Stanford at the top (again). Florida is currently #3 and Kentucky is #14. Pigskin powers Gawga and Bama are #22 and #31. Auburn scratches at #39 and Tennessee straggles in at #54.
That makes The Vols 10th best in the SEC. But Donnie did sign a three-star forward. There's that.
Dave Clark 5, 5 easy pieces, 5 guys burgers, and the 5@10.
My friend in the precious metals biz says Silver is up and Sterling is all but worthless.
Unlike Stewie, I think the commish has a strong hand and has played his cards like a shark. Only flack likely to be stirred up is Sterling spreading dirt he can dig up on other owners. But that won't change anything.
It's been reported that he did know he was being recorded. And fec is correct.
Yesterday Marlins' whiz kid Jose Fernandez dominated our Bravos. He's 12-0 in the first 19 home starts of his MLB career, and has given up no more than two earned runs in any of the games. Only one other pitcher has ever done that, as you know if you caught the game.
Yesterday in the 105.1 Zone Jay properly scoffed at the very mention of a way-too-early top 50 college basketball list. He opined that a third of the teams listed wouldn't dance in 2015. Nobody'll check it, but I'd say the third number (17) is a good over-under mark.
Also remarked was the fact that the list included from the unbalanced SEC only #1 Kentucky and Florida near the top and LS&U at #45. Donnie Knoxville would kill to be #45. Or #75.
With most of the starters back from their runner-up team and another boffo class of recruits, UK will be better than last year, so has to be an easy #1. Early and late. Nine future lottery picks.
And the 6+1+1 is great for Kentucky, and they keep UofL as their ACC foe.
Did ol' Bob ever get lucky with Jessica "I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way" Rabbit? Is Jessica the hottest toon ever?
What about Ray-Bans and Anne Bancroft? Shoeless Joe?
Apparently Snoop Lion is back to Snoop Dogg and The Artist Formerly Known as Prince is back to just Prince. But shouldn't we now refer to Kiffin as The Stinker Formerly Known as THE GUY?
The part of the 5@10 where Jay asked me to "follow along" was where I had trouble following along.
So The Donn is the guy who followed THE GUY (Pearl). And if the situation is similar to where Butch Jones is now, and Butch followed the guy who followed THE GUY, that would make Stinkin' Kiffin THE GUY. Can that be right?
And you don't want to be the guy who follows the elephants in the parade.
Jeff Borzello has a rundown today on the best remaining uncommitted 2014 and juco players. You BO fans might want to look and dream. But forget Myles Turner.
Yeah, he does look like a tv evangelist. Maybe I'll watch the games on the radio. But he does have a smoking hot girlfriend. Guess she puts a bag over his head.
How badly will Johnnyvolsfan freak out when Peyton hangs up the old cleats and goes to work on Saban's staff? And will that be harder to take than the Kiffin hire?
How good must the Indians' pitchers be since Cleveland couldn't find spots on their roster for Scott Kazmir and Aaron Harang? As of now, Kazmir leads Oakland in innings pitched and has the A's second best ERA (1.65). And you will have noticed that the hitter-haranguing Harang has the lowest ERA (a minuscule 0.70) for your hometown unhitable Braves.
Hawks won the weekend.
Palcohol should help the spirit at Auburn and LSU games.
