Just watched Elysium. I love Matt Damon, but what a huge disappointment of a movie. Just no redeeming value whatsoever ... well maybe the ending.  Saw a trailer for Monuments Men starring Damon, Clooney, and Murray that looked good, though.

I guess you saved me $9. I thought the preview and concept looked promising, but I feared I'd only be let down. Hope the popcorn was good anyway.

A 4.3 #earthquake  hit Whitesburg, KY.  Nobody hurt, no damage, just enough to draw national attention to Whitesburg, KY. Thanks nature, late night TV will take over from here.

I was watching Bruce Pearl reporting live at NC State during ESPN's midnight madness coverage last night and a daunting realization sank in: we're never going to be rid of Dick Vitale. Expletive!   #DickVitaleLivesOn

Highlight of the day: Discussing a project deadline on a conference call with our development team and members from a sister company, and our boss told everyone that the client is "chomping at the bitch ... bit".

He lost the room.

I've never been a Stern hater. I think he's done a great job promoting the game globally, but his reaction has crossed a line and will surely tarnish his legacy as the end of his reign nears. The crux of this sticky problem for him was his eagerness to announce "severe sanctions" and issue an apology to NBA fans before the game even started. To his embarrassment, NBA fans were treated to one of the best and certainly most inspiring games of the year.  Watching the SAS bench play with such passion against a Goliath was as much a Cinderella story as those we root for in the NCAA tournament.

Had Stern used discretion and waited to comment after the game, I doubt we would have seen such a "severe sanction".  With egg now on his face and unwilling to retract his premature apology, Stern put himself in the undesirable position of having to leverage a face-saving hefty fine to the opposition of the entire NBA community: coaches, players, analysts, and fans alike.

Stern's apology was an effort to show that he answers to the fans, then turns around and fines the Spurs to the objection of the fans. Who does this fine benefit? It's political. It's heavy-handed. And it's a clear indication that it is, in fact, time for the NBA and Stern to part ways.

I don't know if Stern watched the game that I watched, but I loved it.  I yelled, I got chills, my adrenaline was flowing ... and my heart broke at the end of the game at the sight of those deserving young players' faces who came so close. But this isn't the game Stern wanted me to see or enjoy ... a game he apologized for and vows to prevent in the future.

#DavidStern , stop dictating how coaches should manage their teams and stop dictating how fans should enjoy the game.

If Wenchell's wasn't overshadowed by being a great sports bar to watch a UK game, it would still be known for its great food. I don't live in Lexington (or even near it), but frequently travel here for the combination of both. I don't think Wenchell's succeeds at being ranked among the top restaurants or as the best sports bar atmosphere. But it perfectly blends its strengths from both to create a terrific experience. First, the restaurant aspect. The food really is good. The breakfast menu alone has earned this establishment notoriety as a popular destination. It's regular menu is also exceptional. In all my visits here, I've had one menu item that I didn't particularly care for. Everything else has been anywhere from good to great ... often great. Second the sports bar aspect. I love coming here and being able to hang with a crowd that feels personal. I guess your experience at a bar is whatever you make of it, but the chain sports bars just feel too segregated from group to group for me. Here, it's not hard to blend right in with the rest of the bar crowd and feel like you're a part of them. The decor is nothing to brag about ... in fact it's one of the big strikes against it. But during a game, the atmosphere more than makes up for it. And again with the food ... what other bar has food options like this! Even the nachos are a notch way above any other bar I've been to. Overall, a great place with great people. Their breakfast is an achievement by itself. The blending of a hometown sports bar atmosphere with an unexpectedly diverse and delicious menu makes this place a unique one you'll want to show off to your friends.

This place could be terrific or a bit of buyer's remorse based on your priorties. First, the food. They serve what you'd expect from a cafe: salads, sandwiches, scones, teas, etc ... no entree-like dishes. I had the Monte Cristo sandwich and also had a few bites of the Hot Brown panini. Both were really good ... not great. The bread is wonderful, though. I doubt you'll get anything that you won't like, but truly, I don't think you'll get anything that's exceptionally great. The atmosphere: they don't go out of their way to create an intimate or unique one, but sure, its definitely better than the homogeneous chain restaurants. I do think its unique location adds to its appeal. The value was the disappointment to me. Both the Monte Cristo sandwich and the Hot Brown panini were $10 each. That's not more than I'd be willing to pay for a sandwich, but neither of them were truly worth that price. Both were about the size of a basic sandwich you'd make at home ... not too big and unlikely to really fill you up. And given that neither had any unique fresh toppings or sauces, you in fact could easily replicate either of these at home for a fraction of the cost (except for that homemade bread which really was good!). Overall, I did like eating here. I really enjoy locally-owned restaurants and hope Frankfort embraces this place. I won't pretend cost isn't a factor: for the short-of-stellar food you receive, I think they're just a few dollars on the high side. But you really should try it for yourself and decide if you can overlook that. I certainly have my own local favorites where cost is no factor.

This place has a good atmosphere, especially when they have live music. The food isn't bad either. I've never had anything that I disliked, but nothing really stands out either. The burgers actually are a bit disappointing just because I would have expected more; they're on par with any other place that sells a burger. But they do have other items on the menu that are okay. A lot of my friends have complained about how watered-down their mixed drinks are. I tried ordering a Makers & Coke and found out they were right. I don't expect them to make it strong, but I do think it's cheap when places charge $6 or $7 for a drink and they don't even give you a full shot. This thing really was practically all Coke. My date's Sangria was just as weak, too. Oh well, I'm not going to argue with them just to get a full shot ... I asked them to take it back and just ordered a beer. Overall, a decent place. Maybe a bit pricey for what you get, but okay to go to every once in a while.

You don't find service like this in big city shops. The man truly deserves your business. The prices are surprisingly competitive and they are always extremely accommodating. I recently got a flat on one of my tires that I had bought from Woodie last summer. I called him up and he let me know that it was covered by the road hazard warranty. As always, he said that if I couldn't drop the flat tire off by 6pm (closing time), he'd make arrangements for whenever I could get there. Then, without me even asking, he told me that if I didn't feel comfortable driving on the spare tire while a replacement tire was being ordered then he'd give me a loaner. I have always been impressed by his unsolicited willingness to help out and explain everything to you. I appreciate that tremendously. I wouldn't feel right going anywhere else.

A great relaxed bar to hang out at on the weekends. Also a great place to watch a UK game with other fans.
