Go Big Blue and funny quotes

UK continues undefeated after beating Louisville this afternoon. I'm glad they're winning but I'm annoyed by their habit of starting to blow other teams out and then letting the other teams back in to make an interesting game. I don't want to watch interesting UK games. I want to watch UK blowouts. Still beating UConn, North Carolina, Indiana, and Louisville makes for a very satisfying pre-conference season.

"The agitator in the wash on the spin move and then bucket in the rinse." Clark Kellogg describing a particularly amazing layup by John Wall

"All he could think of was the taste of the sauce. If the manifest of ingredients on the bottle had been legible, it would have read something like this:
Water, blackstrap molasses, imported habanero peppers, salt, garlic, ginger, tomato puree, axle grease, real hickory smoke, snuff, buts of clove cigarettes, Guinness Stout fermentation dregs, uranium mill tailings, muffler cores, monosodium glutamate, nitrates, nitrites, nitrotes and nitrutes, nutrites, natrotes, powered pork nose hairs, dynamite, activated charcoal, match heads, used pipe cleaners, tar, nicotine, single-malt whiskey, smoked beef lymph nodes, autumn leaves, red fuming nitric acid, bituminous coal, fallout, printer's ink, laundry starch, drain cleaner, blue chrysolite asbestos, carrageenan, BHA, BHT, and natural flavorings."

Oh my goodness, that sounds, to quote Cora, "Yuck!" What was he referring to?

Glad to hear UK is kicking tail! I have yet to see a game, but I still cheer for them!
