Ignore history and you’re doomed to repeat it

Terry Meiners and Matt Jones discussed the apology issued by The Courier-Journal over a crybaby caricature of Kentucky coach John Calipari. The conversation sparked heavy response from fans of both UK and UofL.

Enjoy these examples.

Several minutes ago I heard your conversation with Matt Jones regarding the CJ’s apology to John Calipari for the “cry baby” cartoon.

I am a proud UK grad, we are a 3 generation UK family, a lot of us know you are a complete UL shill. You were expelled from UK for dorm vandalism, one of your sons enrolled at UK and was heckled on campus, as were you, when the students recognized who you were-good riddance.

You congratulated the CJ for the cartoon, and damned them for the apology. John Calipari is an very devoted Catholic, he attends daily Mass. You conveniently overlook the fact that both UL’s football and basketball coaches have screwed whores, how about discussing some of that?

I listen to you to hear what kind of crap you are putting out, if you were fired tomorrow it would be a great event.
Just get off UK’s back you disgusting ass hole.

Hi Joe,

You seem like a good guy with a failing memory. You graduated right after UK’s first Death Penalty over point shaving. Of course, our beloved Cats lead the nation in all-time NCAA penalties over multiple generations.

Your historical accounts regarding my family are completely erroneous.

But you, like I, are a forgiving and tolerant man. I am impressed by your heart of gold toward other human beings.

Thanks for writing. Go Cats! Yes….CATS! CATS! CATS! Let’s holler at people over sports! It shows integrity and maturity.

Jerry Hartlage I am a true blue fan, but I have grown to the position where I will not say anything bad about coaches or players. I just pray for them. I am all for second chances. Both Coach Ps got one and I am happy. Let’s pray for Rex and Ritchie and give them a second chance.

Sounds like a good Christian stance. How do people become so blinded to their own hatefulness? Boundaries people…sheesh.
