UK at Tennessee

I can't believe that UK made it through the first half with only 7 turnovers. Turnovers have been the biggest problem with this team all year. When they protect the ball and make good passes, they are a really good team. It was a all Meeks in the first half. Draining threes and creating plays. UT made a good effort in the last few minutes of the half to pull within 4.

Just curious, does everyone on the Tennessee squad wear headbands?

Second half. Meeks continues to produce. Gets his season average within the first few minutes of the half. But cools off a bit down the stretch. Kentucky seems like they are fouling UT every other time they come down the floor. That gets Patterson and Stevenson into foul trouble with a lot of clock left. Kentucky coughes up another 8 turnovers this half. UT starts hitting some free throws and manages to bring it to a single digit lead. Then Meeks decided that he wasn't going to let that happen. Final score UK 90 UT 72

Holy crap! Jodie Meeks sets a University of Kentucky record from outside the arch with 10 made. Scores a total of 54 points. That's the most points ever scored by a UK player in a single game. But I have to say, Issell did it without the 3-point shot. That's gotta sting just a wee bit, Nazh. I would have preferred that he'd had this game against Louisville but I'll take it against UT. ;)

Honestly though, how do you beat a team when just one player scores over 54 points?

From the Email

I was a very happy man. My wonderful girlfriend and I had been dating for over a year, and so we decided to get married. There was only one little thing bothering me...It was her beautiful younger sister.

My prospective sister-in-law was twenty-two, wore very tight miniskirts, and generally was bra-less. She would regularly bend down when she was near me, and I always got more than a nice view. It had to be deliberate. Because she never did it when she was near anyone else.

One day her 'little' sister called and asked me to come over to check the wedding invitations. She was alone when I arrived, and she whispered to me that she had feelings and desires for me that she couldn't overcome. She told me that she wanted me just once before I got married and committed my life to her sister.

Well, I was in total shock, and couldn't say a word.

She said, 'I'm going upstairs to my bedroom, and if you want one last wild fling, just come up and get me.'

I was stunned and frozen in shock as I watched her go up the stairs. I stood there for a moment, then turned and made a beeline straight to the front door. I opened the door, and headed straight towards my car.

Lo and behold, my entire future family was standing outside, all clapping!

With tears in his eyes, my father-in-law hugged me and said, 'We are very happy that you have passed our little test. We couldn't ask for a better man for our daughter. Welcome to the family.'

And the moral of this story is:

Always keep your condoms in the car.

Happy New Year

Looking back at '08 and no regrets... the year could have been much better; but health and family are good and financial is getting much better. '09 has promise.

Happy New Year everyone!


 Recently played a few games on Caldera (warzone) and then... Lots of luck in this one, but satisfying
