TGR’s Looker Of The Week

After turning on Sportcenter yesterday morning, I was sure that Ohio State’s Jim Tressel was going to be honored as TGR’s Looker of the Week this week. I actually considered several young men and women that I came in contact with this weekend around the Winchester Memorial Men’s Match Play Championship golf tournament. There are always suitable candidates in and around Winchester on Memorial Day weekend. This year was not the exception. But, the debacle that is Ohio State Buckeye Football could not be denied!

It would be easy to make the recently dismissed, I mean, retired, Jim Tressel, our Looker. It is easy for us to say that it is near impossible for one man to watch over 100 football players to make sure they are not doing wrong, but then again, that is what Jim Tressel is paid to do. If one or two underclassmen who have used their redshirt and medical redshirt before they have ever stepped on the field for OSU were dealing gear for tats over and over again, I could understand how Jim might not know or care, but we are not talking about scrubs in this case.

OSU Athletic Director Gene Smith and OSU President Gordon Gee are also fine candidates for our weekly honor. I love when the executive branch gets all “high and mighty” in a crisis situation such as this one. Gee said this in his statement yesterday, “In consultation with the senior leadership of the Board of Trustees, I have been actively reviewing matters attendant to our football program, and I have accepted Coach Tressel’s resignation.” It took meeting with the Board of Trustees for you to figure out that things were not on the up and up with your football program Gee? Also, am I misspelling your last name or is it really missing that many letters?

As well as these three fit our definition of a “Looker”, no one this weekend fits it better than Ohio State star quarterback, Terrelle Pryor. Not only was it Terrelle Pryor that Tressel seemed to always be defending and protecting from OSU and the NCAA, it was Terrelle Pryor who showed up to the team meeting Monday morning in a 2007 Nissan 350Z with temporary tags with a May 24th date on them. If you are not familiar, one of the scandals around the program currently involves the use of cars by OSU athletes provided to them by a local used car salesman.

Since Terrelle Pryor either does not give a good damn about anyone or anything, or the poor kid is dumber than a moon rock, we have decided to make Mr. Terrelle Pryor our honorable TGR Looker of The Week! He is all tatted up, driving a sweet car, and forcing his own coaches to retire! Terrelle Pryor is a stone cold pimp and our looker! Congrats!

With only being a year or so old, we have missed out on the chance to make several of the Kentucky villains over the years our Looker of the Week. Petrino, Laettner, Walsh, Rasheed, and several others did something to make UK hate them, and then went out and did something dumb enough to earn our award, but it didn’t exist at the time.

Rarely do we get a shot to have our way with a past villain now, in the TGR age. Most people learn from their mistake of crossing that line into a world where everyone hates them, well, at least BBN. The only person I can remember being able to honor with TGr’s Looker of the Week long after his initial “crossing” of BBN is Coach Rick Pitino. But, he is a little different since he continues to attempt to bring down the nation and upset its citizens.

Today, we honor a man who enraged Big Blue nation many times, many years ago. The mere mentioning of his name will get a very passionate reaction from even the slightest UK fan. He is receiving the honor of this week’s Looker not because of anything he did to UK, but because I could not pass up the opportunity to allow something he did last night to embarrass him and his family for all of those years of torment he forced upon us. Here is a video from last night’s Heat-Bulls game 3…

Yes dear, that is former Florida Gator, and current Chicago Bull, Joakim Noah, yelling “F**k you, f**got!” at a Miami Heat fan after picking up his 2nd foul and being forced to the bench. Around where I grew up, this would be considered as the “Pot calling the kettle black”, but I am just saying’. Kobe Bryant was fined earlier this year for a similar comment to a fan, and I hope Joakim’s fine is even larger and attached to a suspension. Of course he backpedaled after the game and gave this statement, “I apologize. The fan said something to me that I thought was disrespectful, and I got caught up in the moment, and I said some things that I shouldn’t have said. I was frustrated and I don’t mean no disrespect to anybody. I just got caught up.”

No matter the excuse, we are proud to honor Miss Joakim Noah with this week’s TGR Looker of the Week award for his comments last night on South Beach! I am sure I express the sentiments of all Kentuckians when I say, “F**k you too beotch!”
C! A! T! S!

There is no better feeling than returning from sunny Sandestin, Florida to a cold damp bluegrass. Things are even better when you have contracted some sort of funk while you were on vacation. No, I did not come in contact with any University of Florida cheerleaders, but if I would have, I am sure he would have been tested for all things sexually transmitted. Due to high volumes of alcohol, golf, and acting like idiots, I have been out of the UK, Trevor Lacey, Dominican basketball, or anything not pertaining to alcohol, golf, or acting like idiots loop.

In keeping with the tradition of making this post less than relevant, I am going to honor a group of people that a majority of you don’t know. None of them are super famous, none of them play a sport for a college team anymore, and none of them are worthy of me writing about unless they do something dumb. This week I am honoring a group of boys that I spent the last 120+ hours of my life with in a Ford 15 passenger van, on The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Capitol Hill in Prattville, Alabama, in two condos in Sandestin , and in several establishments and restaurants throughout the voyage on a bachelor party weekend for my boy Mig.

We demonstrated the best of ourselves when we CONTEMPLATED stopping in Birmingham to do some volunteer work for tornado victims and we demonstrated the worst of ourselves for the remainder of the trip. We hollered and screamed, we drank and ate, and we laughed and cried. We did things we are not proud of and we did more things we are not proud of after we did other things we are not proud of.

It is a pleasure for me to name Mig, Marc, Kyle, Hud, Sully, Bordas, Paxton, Nate, JD, Patrick, Ryan, Tim, Rose, and yours truly, our TGR Lookers Of The Week! I hear the train a comin’, It’s rolling round the bend, And I ain’t seen the sunshine since I don’t know when, I’m stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin’ on… C! A! T! S!

It is not hard to pick out a few “Lookers” the Monday after the Derby. Stories about men overdosing on Derby pie or girls who had their nipples bitten off by rabid squirrels normally flood the internet. I once witnessed a man being cheered on by 60 people while attempting to place a condom on his head in the Churchill infield on Derby day. Don’t ask me why Fertig would ever do that, but to each is own.

I was primed to search this morning for the dumbest, ugliest, or scariest character from the Derby infield on Saturday to make fun of, but then came yesterday. And with yesterday, we got Game 4 of the NBA Western Conference Semi-finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Dallas Mavericks, who led the series going into Game 4, 3-0. I will preface this by saying that I am a Laker fan, if a person who watches next to no NBA basketball can be a fan. I am a huge Shaquille O’Neal fan, and I have also become a proponent of Kobe Bryant’s. But, yesterday, in the Lakers embarrassing loss to the mavs, 122-86, and in Phil Jackson’s last game as coach of the Lake Show, the Lakers shamed the Laker organization. It is hard to even pin the Looker tag on just one of the culprits…

– Lamar Odom finished the game with 10 points and 2 rebounds. He was removed from the game by officials after he shoved Dirk Nowitzki to the ground like a big baby in the 4th quarter. If that is not bad enough, the Khloe & Lamar show is still on television and my wife can not get enough of it.

– The Laker’s 23 year old head case, Andrew Bynum, should be the most ashamed this morning. Shortly after Odom hit the showers, the big thug threw a crazy elbow into an airborne Jose Barea. The cheap-shot sent Jose to the ground and Andrew to the locker-room with Lamar. While exiting stage right, Bynum ripped off his Laker jersey. Stay classy Andrew!

– As he has for so many years, in his last game, Phil Jackson showed ZERO emotion as his team fell apart. He is the greatest coach of any sport in my lifetime, but he remains as excitable as road kill.

– Probably the biggest reason the Lakers were so pitiful throughout the series was the play of Pau Gasol. Pau had 10 points in the loss yesterday and looked painfully weak on the block. But, the most interesting thing about his play, might be the reasoning for his lack-luster performance. Pau said this after the game, “I have to learn that when something happens off the court, you have to keep it off the court.” The word is that Pau was referring to the rumor that Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa, was the cause of Pau’s break-up with his own girlfriend. Due to this, it has been reported that Pau and Kobe did not speak throughout their short playoff run. Before you say that this is nonsense, you might remember when Karl Malone once stated that Vanessa Bryant had interfered with a personal relationship he had.

I am finding it very difficult to separate all of these idiots, so I will do the only fair thing. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you this week’s TGR Looker of the Week! The entire city of Los Angeles and surrounding counties! Enjoy your off-season…

In recent months, we have honored such people as the 10-member NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Committee, Karen Sypher & Rick Pitino, Bruce Pearl, a man who was upset with the way his breakfast sausage was packaged, critics of Christina Aguilera, and Satan himself, Bobby knight, with the title of TGR’s Looker of the Week. Some might speculate that we are not actually honoring these people and instead, are making fun of them. I would like to answer to those allegations with a “How dare you!” To each is own TGR readers and if you don’t feel these folks deserve some recognition, suck it.

I never thought that we would ever celebrate anyone’s death on this site other than Bobby night’s, but I was wrong. That beautiful day will come, but today we celebrate the most disgusting and vile piece of pollution ever introduced into our ocean’s waters, Osama bin Laden! The rat which sent so many suicide bombers into buildings and other structures, but never did so himself, instead, sitting on his couch making YouTube videos, is officially fish food! The coward who encouraged Muslim Martyrs to take their own life in order to take the lives of innocent people will never poison the world again.

The founder and leader of al Qaeda, as we speak, is at the bottom of a deep, dark, cold ocean, and honestly, that seems like a much nicer place than he deserves. The only problem I can see with Bin Laden’s ocean floor paradise is that it is going to be tough to get an address for him in order to send him his “TGR’s Looker of the Week” t-shirt. If there are any Jihadist out there that are looking for something to do, I will supply the floaties and snorkel if you want to go looking for your man. Just as long as you deliver to him his shirt.

Enjoy your bath Binny! I only wish you could feel the fishes eating your flesh from your soggy old body my friend. How I would love to have a photograph of your face when that Seal put that bullet in your evil brain. Until we meet again old friend, you are TGR’s Looker of the Week! Rot in Pieces Bitch! U! S! A!

After a little bit of a hiatus, TGR’s Looker of the Week is back in business! For those new readers we have gathered over the last few weeks, and we know there are a few, ‘Looker’ means many things to TGR. A ‘Looker’ can be a pretty girl or boy, a ‘Looker’ can be a disturbing looking boy or girl, and a ‘Looker’ can be someone who has done something completely dumb or embarrassing to his or her family. To see all of those we have honored as TGR’s Looker of the Week over the last 14 months, click on our Looker of the Week link and you will quickly learn which definition we enjoy using the most.

This week’s winner was not on the radar as far as candidates go until this morning. I was hoping to honor a choking golfer or one who fired a 14 on a par 4. I even considered recognizing a Major League Baseball team who over paid for a mediocre team in the off-season. It would have even been easy to, once again, attempt to put into perspective the nonsense going on in the NFL negotiations. I could have gone with any of those and felt satisfied, but then I got to work this morning to a certain YouTube video.

There are certain people in and around your life that creep you out. Some you are able to eliminate from any frequent trips into your daily grind, others you are forced to deal with. Some are family members and you are fully aware of why they are there, others you are unsure of when and how they came into your world. This week’s Looker of the Week is someone that I can not seem to be able to shake from my life. I have never met this person, I don’t want to meet this person, and if he knows what is good for him, he does not want to meet me either. He is known around the world as a basketball legend, but the game passed him by years ago. Due to this, he has been relegated to a simple commentator and he has never been more miserable. At this point, he is no more thoughtful than the old man who believes that the music on the radio today is not near as good as the tunes he rocked in his 46 Ford. He is the ultimate definition of the phrase “has been”. Ladies and gentleman, I present to you, our TGR Looker of the Week, Mr. Robert Montgomery Knight, also known as Bobby…

I find it very humorous that Knight has become so old and decrepit that he falls into the trap of answering a question about Kentucky and Calipari. It is like when I would call a girl on 3-way as a kid with my buddy on the line to ask her questions about him without telling her he was on the line too.

This apparently took place in Wabash, Indiana at the Honeywell Center. Did these folks really need Knight to point out he is not a “Kentucky fan”? The fact you can not seem to keep our name out of your mouth makes me think he may be more of a fan than he lets on.

“Kentucky started 5 players in the NCAA games that had not been to class that semester”? I always find it funny that guys like Knight can make statements like this from so many miles away from Lexington. As far as I remember, Patrick Patterson was a starter for all of Kentucky’s games last year and he was a pretty good student. The only player who was ever rumored to have not gone to classes in the 2nd semester was not a starter. Try again old man.
Not your idea of what college basketball is? Who asked you sir? I am not sure that even the slow Hoosiers in the audience care what your idea of college basketball is. I have always been told…If you don’t like it…Leave it.
The only thing you seem to be doing “your way” is clearing your nasty throat over and over again. You are so gross, just go away. But, before you do, please accept this beautiful honor of being our TGR Looker of the Week!

Damn, it feels good to be a Wildcat! The Cats are back in the Sweet 16 with a shot at the #1 seed in a “no lose situation” and Billy Clyde is back in basketball! All of this, on the first full day of spring in the bluegrass! I am not sure if Donald Trump’s current wife even woke up to this much goodness this morning! Did you see Trump’s roast? “The Situation”? Child please. He almost was made Looker of the Week for that attempt at comedy.

With last week being the start of this year’s Road to the Final Four, or something like that, Lookers were abundant. Blown leads, bad calls, and terrible losses were all over the bracket over the weekend. On Friday, after weeks of anticipation, the George Rogers Clark cards met the Eastern Eagles in the 2nd round of the Sweet 16 in Rupp Arena. With most of the TGR crew from wild and wacky Winchester and Fertig hailing from Eastern High, the match-up was billed as “The Battle of TGR”. In the end, GRC was throttled by Eastern and I rode back to the tailgate with my tail tightly tucked between my legs. Fertig’s Eagles were able to celebrate for less than 24 hours because they were upset by Christian County less than a day later. Once again, the Sweet 16 makes fools of us all.

Then there was the Big East who sent 11 teams to this year’s tournament. The “super conference” sent well over half of their schools into the first weekend, but only 2 survived. Oddly enough, the two teams who managed to win, Marquette and UConn, beat a Big East team in order to advance to the Sweet 16. The Big East is taking the same stance as Michael Jackson’s father, if you can’t beat anyone else’s, beat your own.

I truly looked hard at making the University of Louisville our Looker of the Week. The problem is, MOST of the time, our Looker is someone or something who has done something silly, stupid, or embarrassing. The thing is, I loved the fact Morehead State knocked the Cards off so much, I don’t consider anything they did silly, stupid, or embarrassing. I f**kking loved it! Well done cards!

In what Rick Pitino did in a quick 15 seconds, Pitt and Butler did in 2.2, embarrassed themselves and their families. By now, I am sure most of you are aware of the situation Pitt and Butler found themselves in Saturday night. With the clock running down, Butler’s Andrew Smith hit a turn-around jumper to give Butler what seemed to be a game winning 1 point lead over the top seeded Pitt Panthers. With only a few seconds left, Butler only had to play good defense without fouling for a moment or two. Enter former Bryan Station Defender, Shelvin Mack. With 2.2 seconds left, Mack inexplicably fouled Pitt’s 5th year, redshirt, grey shirt, graduate-assistant, Gilbert Brown with only 2.2 on the clock, giving Pitt’s guard a chance to not only tie the game, but to take the lead.

In a split second, Mack had become the donkey of the tournament. Brown stepped to the line and sank the first free-throw to tie the game, on the second shot, he missed, and chaos ensued. Butler’s Matt Howard came away with the rebound and everyone in the building and watching on television KNEW the game was going to overtime. All Pitt had to do was let Butler get the board and run out the last:08 seconds, enter Nasir Robinson. On Brown’s second free-throw, Robinson went over Matt Howard’s back and drew the whistle of the referee, sending Howard to the foul line where he hit one free throw and then missed the 2nd one intentionally, ending the game.

It would be easy for us to make Nasir Robinson our TGR Looker of the Week. It would also be very easy to make Mack the Looker for the “near miss” dumb move of fouling Brown. But, before Howard made it to the foul line to win the game, I already knew who our Looker of the Week was. The first question I asked, “Why would you even have your team on the free throw line during Brown’s foul shot?” Why not clear the lane and the worst that can happen is that Butler heaves one 95 feet to beat you. The worst thing that can happen if you leave them around the lane is exactly what happened. If Butler fails to sling one in from 95 feet, the worse thing that can happen is overtime. After Brown ties the game on the first shot, take your guys off the lane! By leaving them there, you are encouraging them to attempt a tip-in or a rebound, which makes the possibility of an over the back call very likely.

Congratulations to Mr. Jamie Dixon, this week’s TGR Looker of the Week! Blame no one but yourself Dixon!

Merry Bracket Monday TGR! Today is undoubtedly the most useless and unproductive day of the year in our country’s workforce. No one is making money, no one is making deals, and no one is taking pride in anything else other than their choices for the Final Four. This is where normal Americans and I differ. I am working my ass off to make sure you, my best friends, get the entertainment you deserve on a tough Monday. It is time to award a freakishly fine person, or group of people, our TGR Looker of the Week!

Until yesterday, our Looker of the Week was locked down. In the 2nd round of the SEC Tournament, we were all shown a perfect example of a “Looker”. In a tie game with only seconds left in regulation, Georgia had the ball and a time out left. Instead of calling the timeout right after Bama scored, or a few plays earlier when Georgia was in a trap, Head Coach Mark Fox waited until there was .8 seconds left on the clock and called time out. The problem was, Dustin Ware banked in a 3-pointer just ahead of the buzzer and just after Fox’s timeout, which would have won the game. Instead, the Dawgs went to overtime with the Tide and lost. I like Mark Fox, but this was proof that he is definitely a “Looker”.

Then came yesterday, the day the NCAA was to release their 2011 men’s tournament bracket. I believe that after nearly20 hours to contemplate their work, the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Committee has to be 10 of the most confused people on the planet. Cases can always be made for teams who get in, and those teams who are left out. No matter how large the money hungry NCAA makes the tournament in the future, you will always have those “snubs”. Saying that, UAB and VCU’s participation in this tournament is about as ridiculous as it gets. I don’t want to throw out numbers and stats on this, you can get that type of information anywhere. The problem is, it does not appear that the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Committee knew this information was available.

I am sure it is now clear that I am a Kentucky die-hard fan. Making that clear, how in the F**K could we be a 4 seed while Florida is a #2? I have considered Florida, its university, its fans, and it’s administration #2 for a long time, but in a different sense than the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Committee. Was the entire last 2 weeks of the season and the recent SEC Tournament all for not? Was there any real reason for us to embarrass one of your #2 seeds on national television yesterday in a conference championship? As much time as they claim to put in on the construction of the tournament, it really doesn’t seem that complicated. This year, it just looks like they took a few teams from each tournament, looked at their record and RPI, and threw them on a board. They then spent the next 4 weeks eating beef jerky and drinking green tea. I hope like hell that your tournament falls apart in the first weekend, the Cats are the highest seed to advance to the next round, 15 “Cinderella” teams move on, and not a damn person north of Covington or south of Corbin watches your mess.

Congratulations to Eugene Smith (2010-2011 Chair) Director of Athletics, Ohio State, Stanley M. Morrison-Director of Athletics, UC-Riverside, Jeffrey A. Hathaway-Director of Athletics, UCONN, Lynn Hickey(a woman)-Director of Athletics, UT-San Antonio, Mike Bobinski-Director of Athletics Xavier University, Dan Beebe-Commissioner Big 12 Conference, Doug Fullerton-Commissioner Big Sky Conference, Ron Wellman-Director of Athletics Wake Forest University, Steve Orsini-Director of Athletics SMU, and Scott Barnes-Director of Athletics Utah State University! The 10-member NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Committee! Do all of the schools they represent even have D-1 basketball teams? No matter, they are TGR’s Lookers of the Week!

It is amazing how much more enjoyable your Monday is when the cats hammer down on a highly underachieving opponent on their own floor! Ruining Senior Day for student-athletes at the University of Tennessee should be added to the list of games played in both the winter and summer Olympics. That is an event that I would gladly pay enormous ticket prices to view each and every year. Let’s get to it, this week’s TGR Looker of the Week!
It would be very simple for us to bestow the greatest of all honors upon the greatest man to ever live, Charlie Sheen. If you hate cocaine, whores, binge drinking, not hitting girls, winning, tiger blood, rocketing to the moon, or anything else he has referenced in the last week, you might disagree with my fascination of him. Before you get too upset with me, let me inform you that I don’t care. I am winning, you are probably not.
Tennessee’s Bruce Pearl and Scotty Hopson were mentioned as possible nominees this week. Hopson for his performance against the cats yesterday in Knoxville and Pearl, well, for just being Pearl. Pearl has already been honored by being named our Looker this year and Hopson has a great excuse for playing like a scared little girl for most of the game…he was being guarded by Deandre Liggins. His Kid’n’Play haircut and his trash talking were epic yesterday, unfortunately for him; in what could very well be his last day in Knoxville was a loss, just like Bruce’s.

The Tennessee YouTube terrorist, BigVOLdaddy, was nearly made our Looker this week for this video. In it, he references and congratulates TGR’s YouTube correspondent, CF15, aka CatsFan15. He takes a little shot at CF15 for his “Tennessee Hate” videos last week and the quantity of them, but not anything terrible. I just don’t appreciate this turd having our man’s name in his dirty pie hole.

This week’s winner could very well be a repeat winner, I am too lazy to look. She is apart of a story that I am very sick of hearing about and I am sure that most of you are too. I have vowed not to mention this woman’s name or the situation she has found herself in the last year, but I can not resist this one. In the last year or so, she has become the Queen of Louisville cardinals basketball and the apple of Big Blue nation’s eye for so many reasons. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Karen Sypher has made her return to TGR!

To catch you up on her fabulous life, she was sentenced in February to seven years and three months in federal prison for trying to extort money, cars and a home from University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino. We are not celebrating her and her life as a whole today, just for a comment the future federal prison inmate made recently to the congregation at Gospel Missionary Church in Louisville. The honorary member of Big Blue Nation said, “I have said over and over, I feel like Rosa Parks on the back of the bus…” Look, I am not a civil rights or African-American historian by any means. There are many points in time that I wish I knew more about, the civil rights movement in the mid-20th century being one of those times. Saying that, what on earth could have Rosa Parks been doing on that bus that would afford Karen Sypher to compare herself to the civil rights leader? I have heard many stories about Rosa and her participation in the movement, but never about anything that Karen Sypher could relate to. I guess there is an above average chance that Outkast might put Karen Sypher’s name in a song in the future, but that is the only possible comparison I could imagine. I am not sure, but I bet there might be a few individuals in the federal prison Karen Sypher will soon be apart of that might disagree with Karen’s assessment of the two individuals.

Congratulations! You are our Looker of the Week!

It is Monday again and that only means a few things… Today sucks, the weekend is not nearly as close as I would like it, and TGR’s Looker of the week is rockin’ and rollin’! Last week I took a different approach and gave you a little on a man I respect as much as my own father. He disagreed strongly with the Jimmy Dean sausage company’s decision to change the 16 ounce rolls of sausage to 12 ounce rolls and made it clear to Jimmy Dean. I have never felt as passionate about any change a company has ever made, so, I respect a man who can be that upset by such a change.

If this was the “old me”, I might decide to make the Looker of the Week a number of people this week. There would be no better candidate then the male Louisville cheerleader who ran on the playing floor yesterday, grabbed the ball, and threw it into the air before the game was over. Thankfully, or not, Louisville was up by 5 points and the technical foul awarded to Louisville because of his actions did not lose Louisville the game as I wished it had. It is debatable whether this action, or the fact he is a male cheerleader for Louisville best qualifies him for the Looker award.

I thought maybe if I was the “old me”, I would consider making the #1 ranking in college basketball the Looker, since no one can seem to hang on to it this year. Duke lost again, to Virginia Tech on Saturday night which means there will be a new #1 today. Watch out Buckeyes, you are next.

Like last week, this week’s recipient of the TGR Looker of the Week award is someone we can all look up to. He has a passion he is able to display for the entire world to see and hear. I became aware of this man a few weeks ago due to a Howard Stern Tweet and I have quickly become his biggest fan. For any of you who are animal lovers (nothing perverted), you will also surely become a big fan of this week’s winner. I was alerted to his description of the honey badger at first, but all of his videos are very educational and entertaining. His name is Randall and he is the narrator of Randall’s Wild Wild World of Animals. According to Randall’s YouTube page, “There is no other animal in the kingdom of all animals, as fearless as the crazyass Honey Badger. Nasty as hell, it eats practically whatever it wants. Randall is disgusted.” Here is his video on the very dangerous honey badger…

HONEY BADGER DON’T CARE! How much fun would it be to have Randall as the color man on a Kentucky basketball broadcast? You can see all of Randall’s videos here. Congratulations to Randall, our TGR Looker of the Week!
