‘Nuff said…

My gal painted this for me.  Not quite finished, though.

I asked Unny to paint this sign for me on a whim.  Now that it’s done, I don’t know what to do with it.  Well, when she completes it.  Maybe we’ll sell it on ebay.  lol  Hell, maybe I should Fed Ex it to Coach Cal so he can take it with him to the NCAA Appeals Board.  haha

Kentucky outduels the ETSU Bucs 88-65

https://i1.wp.com/media3.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/photo/2010/11/12/PH2010111206551.jpg

First game of the regular season. The Cats come out guns a blazing.  Terrence Jones slams down 25 Points and 12 Rebounds for his first Double Double of his UK Career.  Brandon Knight (17 pts/5 ast) and Doron Lamb (20 pts) bring it with Double Digit scoring. Young Doron also pulled in 5 rebounds.

And in what is most likely a surprise for many a UK fan who had left him for dead, Deandre Liggins throws down for 14 points, dishes out 6 assists and nabs 3 rbds.

It’s going to be a group board effort this year without Kanter.  Unless Vargas and Jorts step up big time.  Jorts is a big fella.  he should be snatching balls left and right.  We’ll see.https://i0.wp.com/www.blogcdn.com/ncaabasketball.fanhouse.com/media/2010/11/terrencejones-200-111210.jpg

Jorts had a respectable 7 rebounds (4 Offensive).  He’ll be sorely needed this year with Kanter being ruled ineligible.  A shame that.  The NCAA made a piss poor decision on that call.  13,000 dollars makes one a “Professional.”  Who’d a thunk it.  I thought Pro Ballers were cashing million dollar checks.  Yet, the NCAA rules that a measly 13,ooo bucks and 20,000 bucks in school expenses makes one a “Professional.”  The NCAA is still a joke.

Anyway.  Great Game and Great Opener on the Season.  Many is the fan was worried about this game.  The baby Cats proved up to the challenge of the Great Bucs of ETSU. Imagine!

The one down side is free throw shooting.  An abysmal .391.  Can’t give up the freebies like that and expect to make any kind of run in the NCAA Tournament.

Last word.  Darius Miller.  The kid seems to have talent.  He doesn’t seem able to bring it except on occasion.  I think he can ball as well as the Frosh.  Why he continues to be satisfied with second string is unfathomable.

Jones become the first Kentucky freshman to debut with a double-double since Jules Camara in 1998, stuffing the stat sheet with 25 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three steals in Kentucky’s 88-64 win over Eastern Tennessee State.

Istanbul Says FREE ENES!!!

 

 

FREE ENES!!!

 

We just happened to be in Istanbul this week as the Pete Thamel/NCAA created Hullaballoo over our Big Blue Turkish Bro goes into overdrive. With that in mind, we headed out to Aya Sophia and the Sultanahmet Mosque in the Sultanahmet District to grab a couple of photos with our “FREE ENES” sign.

Turkey has been the friendliest country on this years Big Trip through the Middle East. I’ve been here a couple of days now and have been out walking in the city and sightseeing with Unny and Becca. Everyone has been friendly. No scary, angry or freaked out faces staring at us over our clothes or our shoes or our scarves or whatever. People here seem to be Euro oriented and the religious overtones that were so heavy in Jerusalem and Cairo are non-existent here. So far, it’s been a nice stay.

Off to Ephesus and Pammalukke tomorrow. We’ll see the Temple of Artemis which will be awesome as it’s one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

Good Times.

Enjoy and hope you have a laugh at our pics.

 

NCAA! I'm coming for ya!!! FREE ENES or else!!!

 

Just having fun…
