Hurray For Josh Pastner

First of all I want it clearly understood;
As we say down south, Coach ya done real good.

He started out in the hole for Heaven’s Sake
All he had was what Calipari didn’t take.

But he assembled a staff then hit the ground running
He recruited only the best,and the results have been stunning.

Rivals dot com with all the stats at there command
Said-kid you’re number one in the land.

But as this season winds down there is some trouble:
Because the Tigers are known as-on the bubble.

That means to make the Big Dance the chances are slim
But that doesn’t mean the Tigers won’t get in.

We may have to win the tournament but ya wanna know what;
Lets go to Tulsa and kick some serious butt.

Hey-for a down year the Tigers withstood the heat
And next year we’ll be in the catbird seat.

And for Coach Cal we wish only the best
And may the bird of paradise dump in your nest…

Kevin and JM talk about Dana Kirk, the NBA trade deadline, Tyreke Evans, SEC officiating, and more.

Ode To the Winter Olympics

As I watch the games I must get a grip
Because I realize my knowledge is almost zip.

For example I was absolutely completely awe struck
When I learned that a double axel was not part of a truck.

And a Michelle Kwan for all I knew
Was another strain of the Asian flu.

Ski jumping looks like fun for those with the touch
But after 30 minutes I can take just so much.

And the hockey games would be a real delight
If they threw away the puck and just let ’em fight.

I don’t understand curling with the broom and stone;
And I have a feeling that I’m not alone.

Really,I don’t want the games in anyway diminished
Just give me a call when they’re finally finished.

Ode To Coach Cal

I’ve drawn a line in the sand and I will not budge
I gotta be honest because-I do hold a grudge.

Coach Cal is the target-he’s not a nice guy
And if you will stay tuned I’ll tell you why.

First of all he can’t coach,I know I’ll not be the same
After the way he handled that Kansas game.

Tiger fans were going crazy,I heard them shout;
For Heaven’s sake coach call a time out.

But no time out was called and the next time I looked
Sure as God made green apples out goose was cooked.

Then there is the Derrick Rose affair for all to see
Because he did not take his own ACT.

The NCAA found out and here’s their call
They want to nail our butts to the wall.

Calipari could care less with him it’s all ducky
He took off for a big job in Kentucky.

I don’t wish him physical pain or financial distress
But If you polled Tiger fans I would have to guess;

They’d hope for the Wildcats to find their final rhythm
And go straight to the Devil and take Cal with ’em.
