Kentucky Wildcats Morning Quickies: Bruce Hyde Edition

Good morning. Louisville's having a bad day, Kentucky loses a lineman, and Star Wars is coming.

You may have seen this sometime last week, but Bruce Hyde, a guest star on Star Trek (the original series) has died. His most famous moment on the first Enterprise was in the episode, "The Naked Time" in which the Enterprise crew were infected by an organic chemical compound from a dying planet that attacked the reason centers of the brain in a way very similar to alcoholic drunkenness.

Lieutenant Kevin O’Riley, played by Hyde, nearly destroyed the Enterprise by taking over Engineering, locking himself in, and turning the warp engines completely off, forcing a never-before-attempted full-power restart. While in control of Engineering, O’Reilly (Hyde) repeatedly offered a badly off-key version of "I’ll Take You Home Again, Kathleen." Sadly, YouTube lacks that scene, but this one should refresh your memory of the episode:

Rest in peace, Mr. Hyde. You will be remembered, and missed.

In tangentially related news and also worthy of a mention, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer aired last night. Here it is:

Nice work. I’m intrigued.

This is the hard question. Why did he not know? This was not a one-player operation that could easily be hidden.

His second point is also well-made. Can you imagine Calipari’s players doing this to him? Well, it seems like not only a former trusted player, but a lot of others, thought too little of their relationship with Pitino not to have sex parties potentially involving minors in the dorm named in honor of Pitino’s brother-in-law and best friend, Billy Minardi, who was killed in the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center.

Tough times for Rick and Louisville, and no mistake.
