TGR’s Red Lot Prediction Contest Results

In an attempt to make at least one Kentucky fan’s day brighter this dreary Monday afternoon, it is time to announce the winner of the 1st annual TGR Red lot Prediction Contest! First of all, all of us at TGR would like to thank the fine folk at Coke Zero for providing us with such a spectacular prize for today’s winner.  We look forward to continuing our relationship with you and can’t wait to get the candy red drop top Benz you promised me. We would also like to thank all of the folks who participated and dropped their score for the Kentucky/Georgia game in our comment section. We would love there to be as many commenter’s as there are visitors to our site each day, but there is obviously not.  We don’t want to pressure anyone to comment on our posts, but if you have a thought on a post or our site, we would love to hear from you.

The winner of our contest actually finished 2nd, to be honest. The true winner of the contest was TGR’s own, Samuel Clemens. We figured that since Sammy collects a TGR paycheck each week we should probably go to the next name on the list. So, with a prediction of Georgia 39 – Kentucky 36, the winner of the TGR Red Lot Prediction Contest is Mr. Patrick Aaron Tierney of Tampa, Florida! He gets the rolling (fold-able) Cooler, he gets the Long Sleeve T-shirts, he gets the Cinch Totes, he gets the Stadium Cushions, he gets the Cups with Lids, he gets the Nerf like footballs and he gets 100 points for redemption on MyCokeRewards.com!  Life for Mr. Tierney has just been taken to the next level TGR!

I e-mailed Mr. Tierney this morning to make him aware of his winnings and he responded with the following acceptance speech, which I did not ask him for…

“First off I would like to thank God.  What kind of acceptance speech would this be without thanking God first?  Secondly I would like to thank the UK equipment staff for dipping all of our offensive player’s gloves in baby oil before the game started.  Without them I would not be here accepting this award.  I would also like to give myself a pat on the back as well.  If it was not for my piss poor attitude when it comes to Kentucky football I would have never been able to pick against my own team.  Some may think that I submitted 8 different email addresses and the one that didn’t have us winning was the one that brought it home (sort of like a tourney bracket).  No sir, that was not the case.  I went the Negative Nancy route and that attitude has put me in this position today.  Also I would like to thank my fellow TGR mates.  Without you guys continuing to drink the blue Kool-aid and all picking the Cats to win by 3 TD’s instead of actually noticing that this team has played 2 good halfs of football this year, I would not be accepting this award.  And finally thanks to Coke Zero, any chance I can substitute this $200 pack for some Ale-8’s?  I am down to my last 3 12 packs and starting to hit panic mode.”

The second part of Patrick’s windfall is that he is being recognized as today’s tailgater of the Week! Patrick answered the questions I asked of him without incident and the following are the results of our Ale8 fueled conversation…

Name? Patrick Tierney

Where are you from? Winchester, KY (Home of the brave)

Where do you live now? Tampa, FL

Do you have season tickets for UK football? Not anymore

How long have you been attending UK football games? I grew up in the RV lot

Good or bad, what is your most memorable UK football moment? I always looked forward to heading to the RV lot as a kid on Friday night and heading home on Sunday morning.  My most memorable football moment was the Cats upset of Louisville back in 2007.  When Stevie “got loose” I proceeded to jump in a grown man’s arms in Rob’s section and he held me like a baby.  Never met the guy before and hope to never meet him again.  It had to be an uncomfortable moment for him, but I was extremely excited.

If you could choose Three UK related individuals to tailgate with, dead or alive, who would they be? Mr. Wildcat, Cawood Ledford, Andrew Rogers (Towel, I need some new gear)

If you could choose three famous people not related to UK to tailgate with, dead or alive, who would they be? Harry Caray, Dick Vitale, “The Hawk” Andre Dawson.  Just listening to their stories and having a few cold snacks.

Name one person that you would never want to show up at yore tailgate, dead or alive. The obvious choice, Rick Pitino.  He is not very well liked in the Tierney family.

What game do you most look forward to tailgating for? Louisville.  I hate everything to do with Louisville and the people that support them.  I have my entire life.

If you could tailgate at any other school in the country for one game, which school would you choose? Night game at LSU

How would you describe your tailgating “style”? Loud, hydrated, & cocky.  I enjoy beer swirls after victories, chanting stupid phrases with friends, and pregame taunting.

The Tailgate Review

Posted by: R.A.Pedigo at 10:36 am | Leave a Comment (3)
Category: Tailgating

If the tailgating and football gods have not provided us with anything else this year, they have provided us with some fantastic weather for our red lot festivities. The past couple of years have seen us deal with wet, cold, or windy conditions just about every single week, but this year has been beautiful and we appreciate the assistance from mama nature.  Normally in Kentucky during September, October, and November the weather is a crap shoot.  Tailgating outdoors under a tent can be tough. I am probably jinxing our final 2 home tailgates, but this year, we could have not asked for better playing conditions on the corner of cooper and University.

Last week while tracking down a participant for our “Other Side of the Lot” post, I was put in touch with Jeff Dantzler, the play by play guy for UGA baseball and Women’s Hoops. I was unable to get Jeff’s post up Friday, so, I thought I would share a few of his thoughts of Kentucky and it’s amenities with you now. “I can’t tell you how excited the Georgia people are to be coming to Lexington in October.  (My buddies were having a blast at Keeneland Friday afternoon) and looking forward to some great autumn weather at Commonwealth Stadium. This is always a great trip.  It’s easy to park and tailgating friendly. “Jeff’s friends were not the only Georgia fans in Lexington and at Keeneland this weekend.  Keeneland actually honored Uga Friday with a presentation in the paddock. My question is, Why are we treating Georgia’s fans differently than we treat other fans? Georgia fans are some of the most obnoxious in the country.  When they don’t stink, Georgia Bulldog supporters are some of the most smug, arrogant, and ridiculous the SEC has to offer.  Each time they play in Lexington, the entire Georgia fan base seems to think they can take over Lexington as their own.  As far as I know, Keeneland did not honor South Carolina’s stupid chicken last week, did they?  Why do we seem to bow down when the ‘Dawgs’ come to town?

Jeff also had this to add about Kentucky, “Let me say this, Georgia and Ole Miss have long had the prettiest girls in the world.  But Kentucky is not far behind.  I absolutely adore Kentucky’s cheerleaders.  They are well deserving of all of those national championships.”   Jeff makes a fine point here.  Not only does Kentucky have some fine looking honeys, they know how to dress. The weather, the conditions, nor the situation seem to faze Kentucky women when it comes to the type of clothes they are willing to wear.  We watched a chick walk around a tailgate Saturday with 5 inch heels on for about 7 hours in the red lot. It was home coming Saturday and it seems the Kentucky girls are wearing less and less clothes each year as well. They may not have any clue what the final score was, but they know exactly how many pieces of double sided tape they need to keep those puppies covered.

Jeff added this about Kentucky vs Georgia when it comes to musical taste, “When it comes to music, R.E.M., James Brown and Ray Charles give Georgia the edge over Kentucky and Billy Ray Cyrus”.  It looks like the mullet and the high tops will haunt Kentucky’s musical world forever. No matter how many Loretta Lynn’s or Montgomery-Gentrys we produce, BRC will be our most well-known musical representative.

Jeff picked the Dawgs by 3 in a close one, but left me with this, “When it comes to basketball, I think the passion of Wildcat fans is unmatched by any program in the country.  When it’s rolling, Rupp is as loud as any place, though I felt when the program dipped some, Florida, when the Gators were rolling, and the O’Connell center had passed Lexington as the most intimidating place in the league to play.  But Rupp is back on top.  By the way, don’t fall asleep on Georgia’s basketball team this season, the Bulldogs could really push Kentucky in the SEC East this season. “First of all, fruits wearing blue and orange is about as intimidating as the lead singer of R.E.M. To me intimidating is when a place has rocked for 40 years straight, not just the duration of 4 player’s careers at a school. I will predict a Georgia victory in the O’Connell center this year though. I appreciate Jeff Dantzler taking the time to help us out.  I am forever a Dantzler man and I hope he gets the job as voice of the football Bulldogs one of these days.

It was a pretty uneventful tailgate party this week.  Due to last week’s tailgater of the Week, Shelby, our TV and generator came together without any issues this week. We had a great spread thinks to all of the lovely ladies of TGR and had a great crowd thanks to me and my wonderful personality. The Midden family made their traditional trip up from Georgia, complete with Georgia t-shirts on. Even my good friend, color analyst for Clark County basketball, and loyal TGR reader, Leonard B. Midden made his presence felt in the red lot Saturday.

In the category of “Random Visitors of the Week”, I was shocked to see Mr. Ryan Fertig make the trip from Jefferson County. No one thought Fertig still remembered the way to Lexington, but Ryan once again proved the masses wrong.  His line beard is filling in splendidly and he knocked out the neck of his Colt 45 only minutes after arriving which was nice too. Great to see the big man back on campus!

As far as the action on the field… everyone within shoutin’ distance knows exactly what killed the Cats on Saturday. As I said yesterday, Kentucky’s defense is still not stout enough to be able to withstand 3 turnovers and a long kick return, and to be fair, not many defenses in America are.

I hope we can get Derrick Locke back into the backfield as we travel south to face, yet another, ranked SEC team Saturday. A win in Starkville and the loss to Georgia looks a lot less depressing. I have believed from the beginning Kentucky has 8 wins in them this year and I am not giving up on that quite yet. But as they say at most other losing football schools, Win or Lose, We Still Booze! Go cats!

TGR’s Tailgater of the Week

On Monday, I gave you an inside look at the escapades of the TGR crew and it’s battle with a very advanced form of technology, a color television. My nominees for “Looker of the Week, Ryan Richardson, Ryan Midden, and Eric Pedigo were baffled by our newest addition to our tailgating experience and how to grab channels from the airwaves using a simple antennae.  I also told you that we were rescued from the depths of our idiocy by a lovely young woman from another tailgating crew, Shelby.  Shelby was made aware of our dilemma and came to save the day! The TGR crew member who alerted Shelby to our issue was told Shelby was an IT.  It turns out there is a funny story behind that title for Shelby. She told me this, “I am happy I was able to help on Saturday.  I actually am not an IT person…I have actually never done anything IT in my life haha.  I am in nursing actually. But the guys of our tailgate are technologically challenged and so since I was able to set up our TV at the tailgate last year I have been designated “IT” of our tailgate. Well, looky there! It turns out Ryan, Ryan, and Eric are not the only dumb boys in the red lot.

I truly appreciate Shelby helping us out Saturday and for this reason…I am making Shelby Fisher, our Tailgater of the Week!  I planned on meeting Shelby at Best Buy or Radio Shack, since she was an IT and all, but due to this new info, Shelby and I met at a local CVS. We discussed her nursing background, drugs, and she was nice enough to answer the questions below, Thanks again Shelby Fisher!

Name? Shelby Fisher

Where are you from? Louisville

Where do you live now? Lexington

Do you have season tickets for UK football? YES! 🙂

How long have you been attending UK football games? Since I was just a baby…but got season tickets a few years ago.

Good or bad, what is your most memorable UK football moment? UofK’s upset of LSU in 2007! By far one of the most exciting games ever!

If you could choose Three UK related individuals to tailgate with, dead or alive, who would they be? Enes (Free Enes!!), Randall Cobb, & Ashley Judd

If you could choose three famous people not related to UK to tailgate with, dead or alive, who would they be? Kevin James, Bradley Cooper, Peyton Manning

Name one person that you would never want to show up at yore tailgate, dead or alive. Rick Pitino…blah!

What game do you most look forward to tailgating for? Louisville!!

If you could tailgate at any other school in the country for one game, which school would you choose? Penn State…for my husband 🙂

How would you describe your tailgating “style”? All day event with friends, beer, food and cornhole!!

If you missed our former winners, here they are:

Jason Oaks of Breathitt County

Marc Raney of Clark County

Mike Hounshell of everywhere

Ryan Midden of Clark County

The Tailgate Review; South Carolina

Posted by: R.A.Pedigo at 12:57 pm | Leave a Comment (10)
Category: Tailgating

oct 2010 113
For all of you who kept asking Saturday, yes, that just happened! In a game that Steve Spurrier referred to as “one of the most important in South Carolina history”, the Cats and Commonwealth stadium rocked out and knocked the Cocks out! I haven’t’ been hugged and kissed by that many grown men since that bid I did in 74 for stealing that skateboard. It was a great day and night for Kentucky fans all over the Commonwealth and beyond.

The tailgate reviewers are always looking for ways to improve our tailgating experience each week in the red lot. Whether it is going for Chick-Filet instead of Wal-mart chicken, Budweiser instead of Bud Light, or bratwurst instead of hot dogs, we are constantly trying to improve ourselves. This week we attempted to make a major move within the tailgating lexicon. It was something we had thought about doing for a long time, but for whatever reason, things did not work out for us. On Saturday afternoon, ‘Big Blue’ Jesus looked down upon his children and gave us the knowledge and strength we needed to be able to add a television to our tailgating lives!  That is right TGR, the boys and girls finally were able to get a generator and TV in the lot, together. After a couple of weeks of deliberations to figure out the best means of making this happen, we finally made it happen! The only problem is, it did not take us long to figure out that having a generator, TV, and antennae doesn’t’ mean that you will immediately have TV, well, it may for some people, but not for the ‘technologically impaired’, meaning us.  Well, not all of us,  the crew who worked on the TV for over an hour without success was my brother, Eric, former Tailgater of the Week, Ryan Midden, and TGR’s own, Ryan Richardson.  If I had a nickel for  every time I heard, “I think we are screwed”, or” Rob, I think it is the antennae you bought”, or “I give up”, I would have been able to get a 3rd Italian sausage in the game. Things got a little testy during the search for channels in the TailgateReview.com tent, to say the least.  At one point Richardson and my brother were taking turns wearing the antennae as a hat in order to try to get it to pick up channels during the channel scan the TV was performing. Jason Oaks (former Tailgater of the Week) and I (the two who actually provided the equipment in order to watch TV) could see our generator not only burning gas, but burning dollar signs as well as it ran with nothing to power for quite a long time.  After several attempts while the TV was under the tent, we decided to move it out from under the tent in order to possibly get a better signal for the antennae.  The 37” flat screen was basically in the middle of the road when one of the crew alerted a tailgater from another area about our issues with our set. I was told this person’s name was Shelby and they were an IT who might be able to help. As the 3 ‘Lookers’ stepped away from the mess they had made, I mentioned to Shelby that their could quite possibly be an award given out if the TV was made to show us the riveting Vanderbilt vs. Georgia tilt.  It took Shelby only a couple of tries to be able to find several channels through the scan and took her even less time to become the Greatest Tailgater of all Time!  You will hear more about Shelby tomorrow when SHE is rewarded for her fine work in the red lot Saturday. It turns out it had nothing to do with the equipment, only those attempting to use the equipment.  Thanks again Shelby!

The TGR cat cave was rocking pretty nicely for the first time this year.  South Carolina fans would like to pretend it is because of their school and team that opposing fans show up, but it is obviously because of their obnoxious head coach. The beautiful Kentucky fall day had a lot more to do with the partying in the parking lots then your ‘cute’ little team did Cocks fans.

Our tent became a make-shift high school reunion with several good friends from years past making a stop to check out the TGR scene. The day was just about as perfect as it could have possibly been.  If we had only had some TV action an hour earlier than we did, I might have called it the “G.O.A.T’ tailgating day at Commonwealth, but they killed that for me. It was still a great day to be a Wildcat, and we had not even gotten into the stadium yet.  It might be chicken and beer for the rest of the home games this year.

As for the play on the field… It is hard to imagine a better win for Joker and his troops. To end the USC streak and the horrifying ‘Ol Ball Coach Streak at home in front of such a great crowd was perfect. When Kentucky knocked off #1 LSU a few years ago, they went to Columbia the next Thursday and were embarrassed by Steve and his Cocks.  All I have to say about that is…payback is a beotch Steve!

In the 2nd half the defense was knocking heads, the offense was unstoppable through the air, and Chris Matthews was catching everything. Randall and the running game was bottled up  pretty well by the stout USC defense on the ground, but  unfortunately for them, they lost Randall on the one play that mattered the most. It was discussed after the game what this games name or identity will be.  If “Stevie Got Loose” 3 years ago, did “Randall get open” against USC?  I prefer that “Mike Got Hot”. I thought the young man from Canton, Ohio had a big win in him, and he proved me to be right.  When Mosley picked Garcia and Mike took the knee in victory formation, I didn’t know if I was shedding a tear for Joker or Mike or all of the above. It was not just a great night to be a Wildcat; it might have been the greatest night ever to be a Wildcat!  I can’t wait to get back!  Bring on the stankin’ dawgs!

TGR’s Tailgater of the Week

Posted by: R.A.Pedigo at 1:45 pm | Leave a Comment (10)
Category: Tailgating

I was told this week that our tailgater of the Week posts suck, not surprisingly, that person has not been awarded the most prestigious of awards this year. I would like to address this person…Mother, if you keep working hard, you have a shot at winning. Keep plugging away and all of your dreams can come true!

Today’s honoree was referred to in this week’s Tailgate Review post on Monday. He was born and bred in “the home of the brave”, Winchester, Kentucky, but moved to Lexington where he now lives. The reason this is of significance is because he moved within a hop, skip, and a jump from the red lot and Commonwealth Stadium. Over the years, I have seen him and his followers carry many coolers and bottles of Beam over that distance in order to join us for a grand day of tailgation! Many times, he passes on the game and trucks it back home to watch, but he rarely misses a chance  to  indulge in a little ‘pregame nonsense’ with the family. I am very proud to announce that today’s tailgater of the Week is one of TGR’s only University of Kentucky graduates and natural red heads! Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Todd Blanton!

Todd and I agreed to meet up at South main Grocery yesterday for a couple chicken salad sandwiches, a giant bag of Grippos, and an ice cold Beam and Coke.  After we discussed the significance of Elvis Presley to our current economy, Todd answered a few questions for me.  Congrats TB!

Name? Todd Blanton

Where are you from? Winchester, KY

Where do you live now? Lexington, KY

Do you have season tickets for UK football? No

How long have you been attending UK football games? Since Bill Curry roamed the sidelines.

Good or bad, what is your most memorable UK football moment? Even though we lost.  The 07′ Florida game when College GameDay was in town was off the hook.

If you could choose Three UK related individuals to tailgate with, dead or alive, who would they be? Rex Chapman, Kenny Walker and Rajon Rondo

If you could choose three famous people not related to UK to tailgate with, dead or alive, who would they be? Michael Jordan, Will Ferrell and Elvis

Name one person that you would never want to show up at your tailgate, dead or alive. Hands down it would be Rick Pitino, even before this year it would’ve been Rick but now that I know it is possible for him to ruin several peoples lives in 15 seconds it is for sure.

What game do you most look forward to tailgating for? Louisville or Tennessee. It’s a toss up but making fun of their fans is so easy for both of these teams.

If you could tailgate at any other school in the country for one game, which school would you choose? I hear LSU’s Tiger Stadium at night is for real.

How would you describe your tailgating “style”? Just add Bourbon….

If you missed our former winners, here they are;

Jason Oaks of Breathitt County, Marc Raney of Clark County, Mike Hounshell of everywhere, Ryan Midden of Clark County, Eric Parker of Louisa, Eric Hudson of Clark County, and Lacey Midden of Ashland.

Category: Tailgating

It’s Tuesday and that means 2 things, it is several restaurant and bars chance to give 2 items away for the price of one and it is our first chance of the week to award a Tailgater of the Week! This week’s first winner is making TGR history by simply receiving the award. They have been mentioned several times this year as a possible recipient, but their performance Saturday locked down this week’s honor.

It is my honor to announce that for the first time in the 6 week history of this post, we have our first female winner! That’s right boys; it turns out girls like it on the tailgate too! Today’s Tailgater of the Week is none other than Mrs. Lacey Midden! Saturday Mrs. Midden had obligations she had to fulfill during the game, but still managed to get out to the red lot for a little fun in the sun before hand.

Lacey was kind enough to meet me at Cold Stone Creamery last night for a couple of double scoops of mint chocolate chip and to answer my ridiculously repetitive questions. This is not only an historical moment for TGR; it is a push in a positive direction for the women’s liberation movement!! Thanks to Lacey for making TGR the only site on the web who recognizes that women “do good” too!

Name? Lacey Midden

Where are you from? Ashland, KY

Where do you live now? Lexington, KY

Do you have season tickets for UK football? No, because my husband and I are to cheap to buy tickets but we always seem to get them somehow 🙂

How long have you been attending UK football games? Since College

Good or bad, what is your most memorable UK football moment? October 2008 when the Cats came back to beat Arkansas.
