Kentucky native, now living in Virginia after a 22-year career in the Army. Having fun now with 6- and 8-year olds keeping me young. I learned long ago from my dyed-in-the-wool Cat Fan grandmother years ago...no one interrupted her when the game was on...and now she has the best seat in the house.

"...the family "decided to try to lock up anything ‘brow’ out there."...Davis’ father said. "The brow brand is his, so we wanted to go ahead and trademark it." Just don't step on Unibroue...been one of my favorite beer makers for about ten years..which now has a new, UK connection, sort of. For those who can find it, try Maudite.

Good lord, what a game! Miss Val St has fallen apart and WKU is on a 15-0 run. I'm rooting for our unforgettable, Sean! Go Delta Devils!

Question for SEC history gurus

If UK beats Florida and UT beats Vandy, both very possible events this weekend, UK will win the SEC by 6 games. Has that ever happened before?

Great article about Jeremy Lin

Written in 2009 well before Linsanity hit. His father, an immigrant from Taiwan, taught himself the game and then passed on the skill and love to his sons.

Sean Woods on ESPN

Jason King says: "One of the country's most improved teams is Mississippi Valley State. The Delta Devils are 15-0 in the SWAC and 16-11 overall. The team went 13-19 last season and 9-23 and 7-25 the two years prior to that. Mississippi Valley State is coached by former Kentucky standout Sean Woods."

Observations from "The Last Great Game"

So, I just finished the book and can say that it was an engrossing read. There is really no reason for a Kentucky fan to pass on this book, unless the memories of that game are still just too...

These kids have so much potential that their talent eventually turns kinetic. They’ll spend parts of games playing with the omnidirectional chaos of young Dobermans pulling on different leashes, but they’ll eventually rip you to shreds.

Check out Nazr Mohammed. Not quite 30-30 (a la Kevin Love), but no slouch either!

Race to 2000

Here's the deal...I expected UK to get there first, although I thought it would be close. We needed 12 victories and UNC needed 16. My projection was beating UNC by one game and possibly getting...
