So we're off to a good start -- Kentucky won last night, no doubt on their way to another undefeated season!

Time for me to learn all the freshman names before they move on.

And as Exhibit #447 why I hate listening to Dick Vitale, when super freshman Tyrese Maxey hit a shot from about 30 feet to put UK up by five late, Vitale -- in all his incredibly-skillful-and-wide-vocabulary unleashed no less than four "Are you kidding me"s and one "You've got to be kidding me" in about twelve seconds. Wow. What a genius wordsmith that guy is -- what trenchant analysis.

GO BIG BLUE

Do you feel good vocabulary is no longer encouraged?

Yes. We expect so little from our public figures these days that the mindless repetition of stock phrases passes for analysis. It was a great shot! Go ahead and exclaim once -- or twice. But ad nauseam? Thank god for mute buttons.


Who to root against in a match-up like Duck v. Kansas, eh?  I was hoping for an outbreak of the measles, frankly.

Hey all, I see that laughedatbytime has changed his profile pic and added some picture to this thread, but I can't quite make it out -- yeah, yeah, it's just a jumbled mess. :D

Much like UK's defending . . . . :facepalm:
