I didn’t expect the ESPN documentary I Hate Christian Laettner to make me like the guy.
It’s a movie, not a miracle.
But unlike a movie plot, Laettner’s story exhibits no signs of growth or learning over the past two decades. In his interview, he seems as much of an arrogant bully now as he was 20 years ago.
What did surprise me was not only Coach K’s acceptance of his behavior but also his decision to let Laettner have ‘free reign’ to bully others — not the best message to send.
I guess winning was more important than how they won.
I’m glad we currently have teams in college basketball who can win the right way…and I still hate Christian Laettner.

In honor of the Kentucky Wildcats’ undefeated regular season record of 31-0, and their start in tournament play, the mayor of Lexington, Kentucky declared today Blue-White Day in the glorious proclamation below:
And I, in no official capacity, proclaim for New York City and surrounding environs —

What makes a person look older?
Grey hair? Mom jeans? A few extra pounds?
According to the announcers calling the UK-Florida basketball game —
The announcer actually called them ‘cheaters’ when he spied them in the crowd on UK superfan and actress Ashley Judd. You could hear his disbelief, his teenage fantasies becoming as blurry as the words on her game day program.
She had aged before his very eyes.
One word: progressives.

I am watching ESPN, and a commercial for Cheez-Its just aired.
You’ve probably seen it.
Scientists are testing cheese to make sure it is mature…because only aged cheddar goes into Cheez-Its.
I don’t know. The immature cheese sounds like a lot more fun. I think it would taste better, too.
These are the important issues that occupy my big brain.

I know that every Kentucky fan is thrilled with the new SEC Network, which pretty much guarantees that any UK Wildcats basketball game not on network television or ESPN will now be televised.
Unless you live in the Northeast.
This is what tonight’s game between Kentucky and Mississippi State looks like to me —
I’m guessin’ that tall, light-blue bar is Willie Cauley Stein, right?
