The Ultimate Father

Talking to a friend of mine this afternoon, I got this entertaining story. My friend is Peruvian and while we were discussing his family, he told me that his great, great grandfather sired 75 children in a small Peruvian village. This prolific individual bred offspring like Thunder Gulch (who sired 361 foals two years ago). This fertile father probably doubled the population of his Peruvian village. How amazing.

A Liberal Lot

Here's something us conservatives have suspected all along...faculty really are all that liberal.

College faculties, long assumed to be a liberal bastion, lean further to the left than even the most conspiratorial conservatives might have imagined, a new study says.

Here's the whole article from the Washington Post.

Radio Call

Here is Tom Leach's radio call of Patrick Spark's incredible three that sent the game into overtime. It gives me goosebumps.

Nice Article - Thank you, Chuck.

I am way too depressed to talk about last night's game, but I just wanted to post this article. It is about Chuck Hayes and all that he brought to the Kentucky program. I am going to miss Chuck more than any other player I can remember. His intangibles are what separated him from the rest. His work ethic, attitude, leadership, and desire are unparalleled. He is the consummate Kentucky athlete, and a fine role model for all other student athletes to emulate. Kentucky was lucky to have Chuck Hayes with us for four successful years. Thank you, Chuck.

This is the starting five. Has been since day one. However, UK is much more than these five guys. We played 13 different players versus Utah on Friday. Our deepness is a major advantage for us. As long as our bench steps up like we did, we can flat wear teams out. Morris got two fouls in the first 90 seconds and in standard Tubby style, didn't play anymore till the second half. But have no fear, Orbzut and Shagari stepped up huge. Aside from our depth, our leadership is what is carrying us on this journey. Chuck Hayes, Josh Carrier, and Kelenna Azubuike are our core leaders, and with their leadership we are achieving greatness. Make no mistake, the journey does not end with Michigan State. With our elevated intensity and passion, our tremendous veteran leadership, and our incomparable depth, UK shall find themselves in St. Louis next weekend. Go Cats!!!

Tucker Max

Many of you may already know of Tucker Max. As for me, I just found out about this character recently. Anyway, he is a guy that makes his living by posting stories on his website of his drunken antics. The guy is well educated, University of Chicago undergrad and Duke Law, and writes fairly well; however, all he seems to do is get wasted and then write about it. His stories are rather insane and always entertaining. For a good read, check out Tucker Max.

Where are the Vices Going?

Check this article out. Entitled Vice in a Vise, it explores the dwindling of our vices. From smoking bans, to more dry campuses, to fast food chains turning healthy, the average American is increasingly left scrambling for ways to satiate himself. Being a free-market type myself, this trend is especially worrisome. Not that I necessarily espouse such unhealthy habits, but rather the idea that one should be able to do what he wants to his body.

This being March is the time where basketball is the single most important thing going on in most Kentuckian's lives - including mine. After experiencing a few lackadaisical performances, the Wildcats were able to play with heart, emotion, and passion versus Cincinnati. They were also able to rebound better, thanks in large part to the strong play of Randolph Morris. Another freshman, Rajon Rondo was instrumental in leading the Cats to victory. With the same amount of passion and will to win, I feel that a trip to the Final Four is quite possible.

Some of the Crazy

Well, the last several days have been insane, hence the lack of posts. Midterms and everything else. I just had a test worth 40% of my final grade this morning and now midterms are all over. Anyway, I am sorry I haven't posted so much recently. Tomorrow I am going to Atlanta for the SEC tournament and then deep south Georgia for the rest of the week. Its gonna be the greatest and I can't wait. Hopefully everyone else has a nice time, and I'll get back to you when its cool.

Dutch Boy Part II

Earlier this evening I came across this entertaining video clip. It is similiar to the Dutch Boy; however, this time it is a member of the U.S. Air Force Academy singing like crazy in his room.

Nice Quote

Non est ad astra mollis e terris via. ~ There is no easy way from the earth to the stars.

And by the way, the song of the night or whatever, is going to be Psycho Killer Qu'est-ce Que C'est by The Talking Heads

Everyone have a good one tonight, tomorrow, or whenever you happen to read this blog post.
