VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE

Y’all. Lots has been happening. Not personally, that stuff’s going fine. Not business stuff, either; that’s going fine, too. No, I’m talking about soccer stuff and basketball stuff.

Soccer stuff first: three other guys and I started a supporters club for a professional soccer club, ANY CLUB, here in Louisville.  We’ve decided to call ourselves the Coopers, explanation being that bourbon barrels are an important part of how bourbon is made, even if it’s not the star of the show. It’s fun. You get it. Coopers!

Our next plan is to get a Facebook (I know, lame, but also useful), Twitter, and independent webpages up and running to grow the group. The bigger the group gets, the more potential interest in season tickets for this as-yet-non-existent soccer club to sell to its owners and the Metro Council. I’m also hoping to start a podcast that would run bi-weekly about local soccer. Seeing as most local soccer means college and high school, it probably wouldn’t be a very long pod, but I think podcasts are fun and want to do one.

This leads me to kind of a big question. I’ve been posting stuff on my blog, SBNation comments, and Twitter as Anything but Gatorade (duh) for like five years now. Since I want to use what little media power I have behind this brand (ha) to support the soccer effort, it’s probably best to finally use my real name, right? At least I think so. Tough call. Any input anyone wants to add would be appreciated.

Finally: college basketball. It’s coming. Big Blue Madness is TOMORROW NIGHT, y’all. I CAN’T WAIT. The stump speech from Coach Cal. The always over the top player introductions. I have no idea what the new guys look like, so those are helpful. The dunk contest masquerading as a scrimmage. The actual dunk contest. Matthew Mitchell dance party. I love it. What I don’t love, though, is how local TV, Dave Baker, and Rob Bromley take a slick, state of the art event and make it feel like something from the 80s. Get some new blood in there that makes the event exciting. Rob Bromley could make a rave boring.

The actual season isn’t far away. Kentucky’s gonna be really good. Let’s get after it. GO CATS.

FLIPPING SHIT I WANT TO DO THIS SO BAD

I swear white people will come up the most random games to play and it’ll look fun as fuck.

Are we going to ignore how graceful his front flip was?

UK Scheduling In the News

Item one: the annual and boringly named Governor’s Cup football game between Louisville and Kentucky is being moved from the first or third week of the season to the final game in 2014, and probably beyond. I am a fan of this move because it puts even more import on the game, and makes easing into the SEC season a little easier rather than putting a tough and important game so early in the year.


Item two: Kentucky announces its 2013-2014 basketball schedule. Non-con highlights include Michigan State and Baylor in neutral sites, as well as regulars UNC, Louisville, and Providence (I guess). The rest of the slate is meh, but there are some interesting matchups with NCAA Tournament regulars UNC Asheville and Belmont, who are always very pesky, unlike actual bears who are very maul-y. Also: rematch with Robert Morris. Not sure if I’m excited about that or not.

Things I Have Done Lately

Built my kids a swingset

Worked a little bit

Watched probably way too much soccer

Cooked a pretty good flank steak but then did a really bad job of carving it

Became an impromptu sous chef in a grilling contest

Read way too much about soccer on the internet
