Well, home boy Kenny Perry was co-leading the Masters this morning, and as I write this he is still tied with Chad Campbell at nine under. Kenny and I were within a few months of being at Western Kentucky at the same time. Go, Kenny, and go 'Toppers!
But moving along to the Wildcats, I'm opening up this thread because I really don't have time today to do a proper post, at least not at this point in the day. I will be putting up a game thread for the Kentucky Derby Festival Classic including the player that you can watch the game on. I will be attending the game in person, so you can expect updates from me via my iPhone using both twitter and the blog. Should be a lot of fun. You can track any Twitter updates on the viewer on the right side of the blog.
A few news items to discuss:
- Rick Bozich has an article in the Courier-Journal about how the national media suddenly thinks UK will go from NIT also-ran to national contender. I agree with Bozich that I'm not going to join them until I know the status of Patterson, Meeks and Wall.
- An article from Michael Porter's home town about his taking leave of Kentucky and joining the real world. Thank you for your time here, Michael, you were under-appreciated.
- An André Woodson biography.
- Another NCAA Facebook violation. Good grief, with this ever end? At least this time, it wasn't at UK.
- Remembering fellow Shelbyvillian, Mike Casey. His arrangements will be handled by the Shannon Funeral Home, the same place as my mom, my best friend's parents, and practically everyone I have known in Shelbyville who has passed on. I have known the Shannons since I was their paperboy in the early 1970's. May God grant his family the peace of knowing that Mike is beloved of the Big Blue Nation, and all of us who had the pleasure of his acquaintance.
