Jodie Meeks: Sure Shot

Posted in Beastie Boys, youtube on January 14, 2009 by AmericanaPulse

My apologies for letting sports invade my little music blog tonight… but I have to get this out somewhere.

Although I now live in Tennessee… I am a Kentuckian by birth. As such, I am a fanatical follower of all things involving the University of Kentucky basketball program.

Tonight in Knoxville, Kentucky’s Jodie Meeks scored 54 points in leading the Wildcats to a 90-72 win over the rival Tennessee Vols. It’s the most points ever scored by anyone wearing a Kentucky uniform. It’s the most points scored in an SEC game since 1989 (LSU’s Chris Jackson).

Kentucky is one of the most storied programs in college basketball history. It is the winningest program in college basketball history and holds seven National Championship trophies. It is the program of Dan Issel, Goose Givens, Pat Riley, Jamal Mashburn, Tony Delk, Rex Chapman, Kyle Macy, Cliff Hagan, Kenny Walker, Sam Bowie, Louie Dampier, Tayshaun Prince, and many, many others.

Today, they’re all looking up to Jodie Meeks.

I wish I had a better song to commemorate this moment. But, here… in honor of Jodie Meeks… The Beastie Boys with “Sure Shot.” Because he can’t. He won’t. And he don’t stop.
