Totally agree on Bottom 5, Dick Vitale should sprain his vocal chords, THAT WOULD BE KARMA. Jim Nantz ruins the Masters golf tournament each April, he's an insufferable old queen who's still in love with his old college roommate, Fred Couples. He recently said in an interview he thought the Jonas Brothers were bigger than the Beatles. Clark Kellogg can't get through a game without crowing about THE Ohio State University, where he played. Yes, Clark, we get it, you played college basketball.

Oh, I'm sorry, I fell asleep. Even reading your postings, Rob, are a real snoozefest!

My sources tell me Billy Gillispie will be coaching in the college ranks within the next year. My sources also tell me I'm the biggest jerk in local television.

Hey, people keep asking me if I'm pregnant again with Alan Cutler's baby, no, I'm just a big girl with a huge badonkadonk. Live from Rupp Arena, I'm Mary Jo Perino, now back to you, Kevin and Nancy.

Why doesn't anyone like me? I anchored sports at channel 18 for years, yet several times when shopping in Lexington, people yell 'LOSER' at me. When I was doing games at Rupp Arena, fans in the stands pretended not to reconize me, was I that bad of a reporter? At church last sunday an elderly lady said to me "Now that you're gone from channel 18, I can watch it again". Yesterday I called the Suicide Prevention Line, and they hung up on me. Am I that much of a loser?

Actually, Lexington is the only place where my act works (using that term loosely). I tried to leave Lexington, and went to Pittsburgh. I did Pirates games for a while, and filled the 3rd man/reporter role. However, the main 2 guys hated me and said I was never prepared (which I wasn't). So I was fired and ran back to Lexington with my tail between my legs. I can survive here because the fan base is ignorant and I don't have to do any homework. Then again, it's only UK here so what else is there? I'm a lucky man, and I should stick to radio more because I certainly have the looks for it.

Personally, I'm glad Cutler was ran out of Pittsburgh. With him back in Lexington, I'm now only the second most obnoxious sports anchor in town. [I'm not wearing any shorts]
