University of Louisville head basketball coach Rick Pitino and I chatted this morning about his upcoming "day in court" at NCAA headquarters, this weekend's Final Four, and next year's UofL basketball team. Rick Pitino on NCAA inquiry: "What I've done the last 30 years in terms of being compliant to all NCAA rules, no deals with agents" 1/3— Terry Meiners (@terrymeiners) March 31, 2017 2/3 Pitino: "AAU coaches, nothing like that.

Governor Matt Bevin had a busy day vetoing three bills from the Republican-led state legislature as its session nears an end. He took time (during a power outage no less) to talk about the vetoes, President Trump's executive order dismantling President Obama's EPA regulations, if charter schools mean resegregation, the GOP health care meltdown, mental health issues, and whether drones would soon fly pizzas right into our TV rooms.
Fans of University of Kentucky basketball have a hard time accepting the end of each season. The final seconds of the Kentucky-North Carolina game was an emotional roller coaster for Big Blue fans. #marchmadness #WKYT pic.twitter.com/4AZEFQ8Avi— Lee K. Howard (@HowardWKYT) March 27, 2017 Eight times, UK won the championship but over 100 other basketball seasons the Cats fell short. Unacceptable. Here's official radio audio describing how referee John Higgins clearly "was out to get us" according to 99% of Big Blue Nation. John Higgins Sabotage of Kentucky from cal for the win on Vimeo. Higgins like all referees has his work reviewed by a panel that judges excellence, assigning the best referees to work the Final Four. Higgins made
One and done players feel the pain, sports fans. Here is De'Aaron Fox in the Kentucky locker room after a numbing finish to his season and career at UK. Very emotional Kentucky locker room as expected. pic.twitter.com/ksNn4iOGHW— Joe Mussatto (@joe_mussatto) March 26, 2017 That's how much these games mean to players who spend less than one year in John Calipari's hyper-successful recruitment system. North Carolina topped Kentucky 75-73 after digging out of a 5 point deficit to take a 5 point lead. But wait, Kentucky would score quick buckets in the last minute to tie the game with 7 seconds remaining. But North Carolina drained a shot with barely any time remaining. Classic. North Carolina moves
He ran off to New York to be a star, ultimately landing the lead role in the Broadway musical Hair. Someone found his voice so incredible that they put him on a songwriting path to greatness. 1970 brought the rise and fall of Mr. McNamara's pop star ride. Please enjoy the colorized version of his two-camera lip sync video. It's awesome. Just the girls sing it! That's right!

Comedian Tim Allen appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Kimmel and stirred up controversy by comparing Liberal Hollywood group think with '30s Germany oppression. Here comes the I'M OFFENDED parade. Liberals immediately made the leap that Allen was equating pressure to conform with, well, very brutal, murderous pressure to conform. For those of you who have forgotten...humor is exaggeration of real circumstances. As Bill Maher says, "This is PARODY...something that we in the comedy business call a JOKE." The most amazing part of this "news" is that the LGBT community didn't have a conniption fit over Allen's assertion that a Gay Pride Parade with trucks full of naked men is no place to take your 5-year-old. Isn't that micro aggressive, homophobic HATE SPEECH?
President Donald J Trump brought his health care rally to Louisville tonight. A rousing crowd waited all day to enter Freedom Hall to hear the president talk about the GOP plans to replace Obamacare, build a Mexico border wall, and even clown on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick's handlers now have him saying that he will stand during national anthem presentations but so far no team has picked him up. I know very little about political gamesmanship but am always intrigued by Air Force One. Here's the approach and landing on Runway 17L at Louisville International Airport videotaped by Bill Weller. Governor Matt Bevin tweeted this pic after meeting with The Donald aboard AF1. If I ever get the chance

From: John Fretter Sent: Wednesday, March 15, 2017 12:45 PM To: MEINERS, TERRY A Subject: Easily impugned Good afternoon Terry, I listened to a few minutes of your show yesterday just in time to hear you slander Alex Jones. I find it fascinating that you freely admitted that you really didn't know who he was, what he believes, and even where his show aired. ("web show are something"). I believe you referred to him as a "conspiracy theorists" and something along the lines of a "kook". Your sidekick whoever that was said that Alex Jones screams a lot. Have you ever heard of Chris Matthews? He tends to get a bit loud and even seems to slobber. Despite that, I was offended at your assessment
