A lot happened over the weekend, and we will get into a lot of it, but the one thing that really stuck out to me was the 15 second preview of the ESPN 30 For 30 documentary "One and Not Done" about John Calipari and his time at Kentucky.
If you haven't seen it, check it out here:

"You're going to hate me but we are going to come to your town and beat your team". I mean, how can you not love that. The joy that Kentucky fans will feel about this documentary will only be rivaled but the loathe of Louisville fans, Jeff Goodman, Pat Forde, and their ilk. (rubbing hands together in evil glee)
Now the Quickies.

Darin Hinshaw offers 2018 quarterback- Theo Day is the latest Kentucky Wildcats football offer, the first he has received. Day recently attended a camp in Lexington and will soon visit camps for Michigan State and Cincinnati, among others.
ICYMI: Derek Willis busted for PI- The Kentucky forward was having too much of a good time Saturday night in Boone County and spent a night in jail because of it. He was released on $50 bail and I am sure coach John Calipari is none too pleased with one of his seniors. The good news is it appears the public intoxication charge is the only charge. No doubt Derek will pay for his mistake, but who hasn't been drunk in public at least once?
Kentucky All-Stars fall to Indiana 99-96- The Kentucky high school all-star team was down by 20 points with a little over five minutes left but ultimately fell to the Indiana team for what seems like the one-hundredth time in a row. The Kentucky girls team actually fared worse, getting blown out 81-62.
Darius Miller named Finals MVP after leading German squad to back-to-back titles -Former Mason County and University of Kentucky star Darius Miller was named Finals MVP after his team, Brose Baskets, completed a 3-0 sweep of Ratiopharm Ulm in the Beko BBL championship series in Germany.
Za'Darius Smith wins bet with John Harbaugh - "[We] went back and watched the tape frame-by-frame, and he was not in the neutral zone," Harbaugh said. "He was right on time, and actually, one of the linemen had even flinched. I have to pay him a dollar, but I’m going to wait until I check my side letter on that."
Lee’s Exit Marks End to Recruiting Class of 2013 - That 2013 class lasted three years and helped lead UK to two Final Fours, a national runner-up, two regular-season SEC titles and two SEC Tournament Championships.
Former Mississippi State guard Newman visits WKU - As a McDonald’s All-American in high school, Malik Newman was down to UK and Mississippi State before opting to play for the Bulldogs last season. In just one year in Starkville, Newman averaged 11.3 points over 29 games. Just a reminder that nothing in life is a given and hard work is required to reach your dreams. Oh, and if you're a big-time basketball talent, don't go to a place like Mississippi State.
Pittsburgh Penguins win the Stanley Cup- The second for Sidney Crosby. There's your hockey report.
Draymond Green suspended for Game 5- Green collected his fourth flagrant foul in the NBA playoffs on Friday night after AGAIN trying to hit a player in the groin. I am happy the NBA finally did something about Green after their failure to toss him after kicking Stephen Adams in the groin as well. Green is an annoying, dirty player. He's lucky Lebron James didn't knock him out after the low-blow. James was the first player to really stand up to Green's antics and it was clear Draymond wanted nothing to do with an actual fight.
Was O.J. Simpson's 1973 season the best ever for an NFL player?- O.J. is back in the news following a highly successful made for tv miniseries and a current five-part 30 For 30 documentary, which is riveting. After watching the premier of the documentary on Saturday night, we are reminded of OJ the football player and just how great he truly was. Little did we know he would become an infamous murderer.
Louisville baseball falls to UCSB in epic fashion- With all that talent and all of those first round draft picks, how could this team not win it all? I mean, they have to be the most underachieving team in all of baseball. Sound familiar folks? That's what Louisville fans say any season Kentucky doesn't win the national championship in basketball. Here's the thing: winning championships is hard. And even when you have the best team, sometimes a pinch-hitter with 25 at-bats all season walks to the plate and crushes a walk-off grand slam to give your over-cocky fan base and athletic department a much-needed slice of humble pie. Am I petty? With that fanbase of jackasses, you bet.
State’s No. 2 football recruit commits to Louisville - Belfry offensive lineman Cole Bentley announced Sunday that he has committed to the University of Louisville. UK did not extend a scholarship offer to Bentley, and the program has not prioritized the guard position in the 2017 class. The Cats’ lone commitment on the offensive line for next year is Austin Dotson, an offensive tackle and teammate of Bentley’s at Belfry.
4 more suits filed vs. NCAA and conferences regarding concussions - Four additional lawsuits were filed against the NCAA and specific member conferences last week regarding concussions. This isn't going anywhere anytime soon, folks.
Game of Thrones Recap- Honestly I thought this episode was the weakest of an otherwise great season. I was really disappointed in the Arya storyline, not because I didn't enjoy the outcome, it just didn't feel right and it seemed way too rushed. I did enjoy the scenes with Jaime and The Hound, the rest of the episode was kind of "meh". But next week, whoa buddy!
The episode is entitled The Battle of the Bastards. Jon Snow vs. Ramsay Bolton. We've been waiting for this.
