    The hoops season is under way with all four local teams completing their first games by tonight.

    What can we expect from local teams this season?

    That’s a good question. Both girls teams have a lot of returning players and some new faces and losses that will help and hurt.

  • UK's bad actor unites Cats...

     As Saturday approached I began to think about the fact that my vacation was about to end and that my oldest daughter was about to head back to college.

    So when she put forth the idea of going to see a movie on Saturday I was totally on board. We both agreed that the 1:30 start time looked like the best bet for both of us.

    Later, I noticed that would mean that I would miss the UK/U of L football game. There was no way I was backing out of quality time with my girl so I just set the DVR and decided that I could watch the game later.
