Seeing blue

Pro basketball has never held my interest. The NBA playoffs are in full swing, and my only question is…

“Any former UK players still in the mix?”

When pro ball and UK intersect, I’m in…if only briefly. That’s why I’m stoked about tonight’s NBA draft lottery, which takes place at 8pm right here in New York City.

With seven UK Wildcats in the lottery–and freshman forward Karl-Anthony Towns the projected #1 overall pick–I can’t wait to watch the action on ESPN.

As soon as my Wildcats find a home, I will wish them well, and then probably not think about pro ball again (until they start making headway and headlines for their respective teams).

That shouldn’t take long.

March Madness is…

march madness

  1. Having a panic attack mid-afternoon when you fear you may have missed one of the Sweet 16 games.
  2. Breathing a huge sigh of relief when you realize they don’t begin until after 7pm ET. Geez.
  3. Keeping your birthday open because you don’t know the game schedule yet.
  4. Wishing the games would just get here…and wanting them to last forever, all at the same time.
  5. Being grateful every day that you are an alum of the University of Kentucky!

GO BIG BLUE! #BBN #TIMEFORNINE

Do you see…

What makes a person look older?

Grey hair? Mom jeans? A few extra pounds?

According to the announcers calling the UK-Florida basketball game —

It’s readers.

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.

Consult your local listings

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?

Okay, okay…but it is one of the greatest photobombs ever —

I had to get in on the action!

Great game, Karl!

Go Bee Doo

My sister and I visited  Universal Studios and Universal Islands of Adventure in December.

Harry Potter was our goal, but we played around in the rest of the two parks as well, trying out all kinds of 3D rides.

One of our favs?

The minions from the movie Despicable Me. It was designed for kids, but I think the adults on the ride had just as much fun.

One thing I did not realize…

Minions are members of the #BBN.

No wonder everyone loves ’em.

In other words

Destroyed.

Crushed.

Dismantled.

Gutted

Ravaged.

Annihilated.

Oh — hi there.

I was just brainstorming ways to describe how the UK Wildcats defeated the UCLA Bruins this afternoon in Chicago.

Erased.

Torpedoed…
