Better to Talk Bats and Bourbon

This week’s Rusty Satellite Show gave me a chance to visit the Derby Museum for a mid-afernoon bourbon tasting. Fred Minnick definitely knows his whiskey, and it got him a cool new job over there as “bourbon Authority.” The Derby Museum, attempting to capitalize on the popularity of bourbon, has created a special room for Fred’s bourbon education classes, which ought to be fun for all those tourists more curious about drinking than horses. My other guest is an old friend – Rick Redman. We’ve had a good time accepting compliments for each other for many years. He does PR…


The Case of the Cards’ Coulda Beens

I was tailgating in the parking lot. Perfect weather, good friends, tasty food, a challenging yet thoroughly beatable opponent warming up a half-mile north. These Cards, this group of players and coaches, seemed to be the ones that were going to get us all giddy, to get the University of Louisville, of all schools, into the national football championship conversation.

Rick Pitino, coach of the Louisville Cardinals Basketball team announced earlier today (Thursday) that Chane Behanan’s is suspended indefinitely, effectively immediately for a “violation of university and team rules” and “no longer a part of” the program. When asked if Chane Behanan can come back on the Louisville team?” Rick Pitino announced that It is possible but not probable. According to sources it was Tom Jurich that made the call on letting Behanango. Of course indefinitely, in Louisville basketball terms may be he can rejoin the team as soon as December. In typical Rick Pitino style, when pressed as to…

Hear All About It From Jerry Miller and John Cosby

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST HERE I’m a little late posting this, but then again, you were probably too busy with a great Louisville weekend to listen to the Rusty Satellite Show.

I do know the show’s audience is growing, and I appreciate all of you who have given me feedback on my little audio experiment. This week’s talk with Metro Councilman Jerry Miller is worth hearing, as he clears things up a little bit on the misguided attempt by West End Council members to…

The Price of Murdering Your Own Baby

  Louisville Woman, Jessica Price,  accused of birthing her baby in the restroom of a Kohl’s department store and disposing of the child in a garbage can was placed under house arrest until her trial.

Price is now under home incarceration and she will ironically serve it at her parent’s home in Shepherdsville. Judge Stevens also ordered Price to stay away from children, as well as take her prescribed medication and…

Rusty Fires it Up for UK, with Coach Mac and JYBIII

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO RUSTY SATELLITE SHOW #12 HERE Every week, the first idea I get for this post is. . . What a week! But that would be bad writing, and give you no idea what I would really be writing about. Still, it was quite a week. I admit to getting pretty fired up when I have Rusty Satellite guests with something to say, and you’d have be an avowed pessimist to spend time with Cardinals baseball coach Dan McDonnell and not feel a little better about the world. McDonnell is a true motivator who uses tools,…
