Monday’s Pot Shots

For the life of me, I can’t understand why The Rick keeps referring to the U of L basketball program he heads as a “brand.” He used the reference three times today in his intro of new coach Tim Fuller.

Panasonic is a brand. This is a college basketball team.

Comparing the soccer that Brazil plays to that of USA is like the contrast between Texas Longhorn football and Atherton High School football. It’s a totally different game.

But we’re closer than we were a decade ago. So, that’s a good thing.

Louisville is welcoming with open arms a hoops transfer from rival Memphis. Which is only slightly less stunning than the Marvin Stone switcheroo.

I shall disdain any Third Reich innuendo, when I advise how much I’m looking forward to Argentina vs. Germany in the World Cup. Now that should be a soccer game worthy of a spanking new vuvuzela.

Frankly, as a U of L fan, I’m more pumped about the presence of David Padgett on staff than our new Nike rep. You think DP’s got a few tricks to teach Terrence Jennings?

So much for my wishful thinking/ conjecture that this might be Andy Roddick’s year at Wimbledon.

“The dumbest thing I’ve ever heard,” was Dan Issel’s response when questioned about Coach Cal’s UK Draft Day boast.

    Big month for David Padgett, getting married (last Saturday) and joining the U of L basketball staff.
