December 27, 2014.“And the sound is great,” Fowler added, which makes hearing the call of the game possible over the din.Most of the group groaned together watching U of L’s Wayne Blackshear pull up near the free-throw line and sink a jumper four minutes into the second half, cutting UK’s lead to 26-24.Two women in the party, U of L law student Amanda Hernandez and Speed School graduate Laura Valladao, wore Cardinal red blended with a bit of gray. Although they were dwarfed by Cats fans, the two complimented their companions for being cordial. It helped that UK led most of the way.“Nobody has yelled in my face,” Valladao said.“Let’s see what happens in an hour,” if UK is losing, Hernandez said.A block or so down Breckenridge Lane at Saints, Sarah Thomas, a brother from Pittsburgh and her father Larry, who traveled from Baton Rouge, La. for a holiday visit, scored front-row seats in the upstairs bar.No. 1 Kentucky basketball tops No. 4 Louisville 58-50 to remain perfectThey were with with a few hundred fellow Big Blue fans who stomped, joined cheers and went wild when fan favorite Willie Cauley-Stein batted U of L’s shots and snatched offensive rebounds.“It’s great here. I love the atmosphere,” said Thomas.She said she was having trouble keeping her emotions in check as her favorite players racked up fouls and went to bench. “I feel like some of the fouls aren’t being called on Louisville,” Thomas said, but otherwise she was feeling upbeat.As the minutes ticked down, and UK clearly was headed to its 13th straight win, LaVera, Fowler and friends mapped the strategy for finishing out a stellar day. They planned to repair to apartments to rest up (“regroup,” as LaVera said) and head out later in the evening to celebrate yet another Big Blue victory.Reporter Grace Schneider can be reached at 502-396-7158.

They shared space with red-clad U of L fans at Molly Malone’s and the Bluegrass Brewing Co.At the start of the tight contest that ultimately saw the Wildcats hang a first loss on the Cardinals, many wearing blue looked on nervously. They cringed each time the whistle blew.Former and current UK students were so antsy they abandoned their seats early to stand on chairs and booths while clutching plastic pitchers of golden draft beer at Tin Roof. When their team finally hit a bucket after a long scoreless stretch, they erupted with screams and shouts.Jennifer Lawrence cheers for Louisville at Louisville-Kentucky basketball gameBuddies Trey LaVera and Michael Fowler said they weren’t going to take chances getting spots at Tin Roof, a known UK hangout where the general manager is a former Wildcats football player.So they sent helpful friends to the bar on Shelbyville Road near Chenoweth Lane at noon, two hours in advance, to save a large table near the front door. Squeezed together after tipoff, the group of 15 or so friends chomped nachos and chicken wings and enjoyed a mostly unobstructed view of three big-screen TV’s across the packed room.“It’s just a great atmosphere,” said LaVera.center_img Session ID: 2020-09-17:c5fc5dcc296beddfdc8232f9 Player ID: videojs-brightcove-player-64969-3962585733001 OK Close Modal DialogCaption Settings DialogBeginning of dialog window.

‘Munsters’ TV reboot in the works

first_img Related L-R: Al Lewis, Fred Gwynne, Yvonne De Carlo and Butch Patrick; CBS Photo Archive via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The Munsters is returning to TV, with a new address and a on a new network, according to Deadline.This time, the family of friendly ghouls trade their house at at 1313 Mockingbird Lane in the fictional Los Angeles suburb of Mockingbird Heights, for hipster Brooklyn, New York. The new take on the comedy series — which originally aired on CBS from 1964-1966 and starred Fred Gwynne, Yvonne De Carlo, Al Lewis, Butch Patrick and Pat Priest — comes from Late Night host Seth Meyers for NBC, with a script from Odd Mom Out creator Jill Kargman.If this sounds fmamiliar, here’s why: NBC previously attempted to resurrect the show several years ago as an hour-long series starring Jerry O’Connell, Portia de Rossi, Eddie Izzard and Charity Wakefield, but it never made past the pilot episode.  Instead, it aired as a Halloween special called Mockingbird Lane.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Cricket: Rohit Sharma is all set to miss the series opener vs Australia

Powered by Firework Team India may miss the services of their “Hitman”, Rohit Sharma, for the 1st T20 vs Australia that is set to take place on 21st November at Brisbane following his inclusion in the 4-day test match for India A.Advertisement Rohit Sharma has been included to take part in the unofficial test match vs New Zealand A from 16-19 of November which will also include the likes of Murali Vijay, Ajinkya Rahane and Prithvi Shaw. The match will give Rohit the all important practice with the red ball ahead of the all important test series that starts on 6th December.Advertisement It will therefore be very hectic for Rohit to complete the game and then travel to Australia the next day for the first T20I. Former Indian pacer, Zaheer Khan believe that the travel from New Zealand will suck all his energy and make him tired to take part in the 1st T20.“He might miss is a T20I. Ya. It’s pretty hard otherwise. The travel does make you tired and takes that energy out. And also the game is not played in Australia, which is very tough to get your head around what exactly is the thought process behind it,” Zaheer told Cricbuzz.Advertisement In case Rohit misses the 1st T20, it will be interesting to see how Virat Kohli changes the balance of the team. Rohit had captained India to a T20 series whitewash vs Windies in the absence of Kohli two days back.Also Read:Cricket: Rahul Dravid outlays the plan to improve India’s performances on foreign soil  Advertisementlast_img read more
