  • Gonna be the LONGEST 10 days of my life lol. Man going through summer time is like I’d rather have my skin peeled back with a pair of rust needle nose pliers lol. JUMPIN GEE HOSSA FATS AM I READY. - - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • @jayballer54 “JUMPIN GEE HOSSA FATS”

    How is the recovery going? Careful with the jumping thing!

  • Does anyone know what network will carry the game?

  • @KUSTEVE I think it will be on cox 22 if that’s what you have. I’m sure ESPN 3 will have it but it could be blacked out, welcome to my world living in a town of 700 people no big time cable like cox or time warner and ESPN blacks it out most of the time. I miss the old days where you could get them with bunny ears on channel 33 or 3 for years when I was a kid.

  • @kjayhawks Time to revive the old Sheahan Zinger (or whatever his accursed name is) sucks posts!

  • @kjayhawks More than one way to skin a cat. Send me a private message between now and the game and I’ll help you watch it.

  • @kjayhawks “When I was a kid…” Ah, yes, gettin’ us old farts started… I seem to remember radio only for 90 % of the games. Before that, town criers… No cars, too, and we had to walk to school (uphill both ways, of course) with burlap wrapped around our feet through 6 feet of snow… Eating crickets on good days… Burning sod off the roof for heat… But (and much more scary no doubt to the young uns) no smart phones, or cell phones, or even portable phones. Had a party line, which did not mean a network for event planning…

  • @mayjay I remember having to listen to plenty of games because they weren’t on TV or because we didn’t have cable. But it seemed like between getting 3, 33 and the games on CBS I could watch about 15 games a year back then. I’m only 28 years young, I did walk just over a mile to school most days and never had cable, internet or a even a computer growing up we was poor. I didn’t get a cell phone til I was 20. We didn’t have hot water in some of the houses we lived in or a home phone most the time. I grew up in the late 80s and 90s but we lived like it was the 60s.

  • @KUSTEVE can’t u get it in Florida on ESPN 3?


    Really like your tag line on optimism!

  • @kjayhawks I am so old we had chariots, but had to pull them ourselves…

    Actually, I was wondering what you do (other than KUBuckets of course) in your town of 700? Farmer? That is something I had relatives who did it, but I can’t imagine myself ever working that hard! I have thought about the advantages of small town life, but never could see us leaving small city comforts. I was fortunate not to grow up poor, and lucky beyond belief to have had parents and grandparents who managed to overcome debilitating illnesses and unemployment to get out of poverty themselves. If you have kids, your experiences should give them a great perspective on appreciating what they have in life thanks to you, as my parents’ experiences did for me.

  • @jaybate-1.0 we need to surround ourselves w/jethro’s!😂😆👍

  • @mayjay Well in this small town growing up we always were playing sports in the yard or hunting and fishing. This is pretty much an oil patch town IMO ether you work in the oil fields or farm. I spent some of my youth working on my uncles horse farm, cleaning stalls, feeding cattle and hauling hay its hard work. I’ve drove a few wheat trucks in my day but never really been a farmer. I personally am a mechanic which is pretty hard work but everyone makes more money in the business (service writers, managers and sales managers) while you actually do the manual labor. I prefer a smaller town to raise my son, like the schooling better and the quite streets. I did live in Salina for a few years growing up after my moms second of three divorces and hated it, we lived in low income neighborhoods and got stuff stolen almost daily. Bet yes i hope to teach my son how to be happy with he’s got. I’ve got a long ways to go before I’m where i’d like to be and not sure how to get there but I’m married and have live in a nicer house than I ever have before.

  • @mayjay In my “kid” days as a Navy brat living in base housing, about the worse crime we ever had was mops/brooms would disappear off the back porches, where mom’s left them, to use the wooden handles as wiffle ball bats. Geez, spell check doesn’t recognize “wiffle”. What is the world coming too?

  • @Crimsonorblue22 ESPN 3 stinks, imo. I have 200 mps speed, and it lurches along. Sometimes it resembles a Charlie Chaplin movie, so I go to different sources.

  • @jaybate-1.0 TY. It’s not mine- it’s an uncredited quote.

  • I can’t wait either - the summer wait is too long!
