I’m a 30-something hoops fan and currently live out west with my husband and daughters.....my three perfect humans.

I’ve found that blogging about my favorite sports teams and interacting with my fellow fans that way has made me an even better fan, it keeps me super informed, and, not to mention, it’s a hell of a lot of fun, too.

And some of y'all thought UK's one-game-only platinum uniforms were bad? Not compared to these beauties. Baylor's new March Madness uni's. These are bad. And not in a good way.

March Madness – SS&R Bracket Challenge

This isn't really Laker related or even NBA related, but since we are all sort of hoops-in-general obsessed around here I thought it might be fun to create an SSR March Madness NCAA tourney...

Introducing the kPOY -- From kenpom.com

3

We do a fair amount of using the mind of Ken Pomeroy around here and so I thought this new thing he is doing might be of interest to some. He is going to start doing his own National Player of the Year award (hence the kPOY) and the link above takes you to his early numbers and how he is going about figuring the winner for his award. Again, these are early results using early numbers, but I was surprised by what I saw. Do me a favor; take a guess as to who the current leader is before you look at the link. Will you be surprised like I was?

DeAndre Daniels at UK -- Could Enroll in January

10
"DeAndre Daniels is currently at Kentucky on his third official visit in the last week and could enroll in a college in January. The 6-foot-9, 197-pound small forward from Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academies took recent officials to Kansas and Oregon. He is at Kentucky until Sunday." I'm not super familiar with his skills, but if what is said is true and if he were to enroll midseason, it would be quite an understatement to say that this would be great for our overall team depth.

Assuming this is all accurate and is what will take place, then Pearl's first game back on the sidelines would be in Rupp on February 8. Heh.

Sorry if this has already been posted somewhere, but I just ran across this and thought it was a neat pic. I remember someone talking the other day about Marvel comics and something about the NBA (sorry, I can't remember who it was exactly). Anywho, this is ESPN The Magazine’s NBA Preview cover and goes with that Marvel theme. I don't subscribe to ESPN the mag, so I won't actually be getting this issue, but I thought the cover picture was pretty cool.

Former Kentucky Hoopsters Getting Respect

1
"At the annual Rookie Photo Shoot in August, NBA.com surveyed 40 rookies about the best in their group. Wizards point guard John Wall, the top pick in the Draft, is clearly at the top of the class, but he's not the only Kentucky guy, nor the only one with a chance to win Rookie of the Year."

25 Most Hated Teams in Sports History

40

According to SI. No, UK didn’t make this list (which actually could be considered kind of sad considering that most on the list are there because of their success), but it is fun to take a quick glance and see who, in the world of sports, did make the list. It should come as no surprise that Miami football made the list. Twice. Also, making the list at #12? Yes, that’s right, the 1991-1992 Duke Blue Devils. Could have been higher as far as I’m concerned, but whatever, they made the list, which is good and true, as they are definitely hated. Anyone on the list make you scratch your head? Anyone who you think should have made the list that didn’t? Feel free to discuss.

SEC Football Helmets. A bit of history.

10

The above link is courtesy of our member, Remote Cardinal and was also posted in the fanshots, but I thought this was a pretty cool look at all the SEC teams’ helmets both current and of years gone by so I wanted to share it on the front page (thanks, Remote Cardinal). I’m sure a bit of work went into the above compilations and it’s pretty neat to see, so take a quick look. Personally speaking and about UK helmets only, I would say that my favorite helmet would have to be that of the one worn in the years 1963-1968 (it’s similar to what Alabama currently has). I know they are super plain are aren’t real flashy or anything, but I have a soft spot for old-school things and for me, the simple, very basic helmet just conjures up images of those old black-and-white photos and especially images of the coaches of that time as back then coaches would actually dress for games. Shirts and ties, long coats, fedoras, you know, really "dress"? Yeah, I love that sort of polish and refinement.
