I'll have a mint julep and a mortgage please

Now that Adam Williams has decided on Marshall, the 'Herd will be his third stop in three years as a collegiate...thus making him the Reggie Sanders of college basketball. For those of us seeking more bang for our bourbon, the fine folks at Woodford Reserve have it covered. The company announced today that they will concoct 50 "special" mint juleps to be sold at Chruchill Downs for the Derby. The drink is made from their finest bourbon, ice from the arctic, mint from Morocco, and sugar from the South Pacific, all poured into a 24 karat Solo cup (ok, I lied about the last one). All it will cost you is a cool $1,000...or, roughly 70 handles of Kentucky Tavern. Can't you just hear the thick, pompous accent of Robin Leach now: "When George Clooney gets thirsty at the Derby, he doesn't reach for a stiff julep like you and me...His comes encrusted with diamonds. The price tag: One million dollars." No word yet on rather refunds will be awarded to pukers or if Lil' John plans to bring his own cup, but I look foward to hearing about this drink in numerous upcoming rap songs. A dead body found in a Memphis hotel is believed to be that of former Alabama booster Logan Young. It was Young, if you remember, who allegedly bribed former Trezevant High coach Lynn Lang for the services of lineman Albert Means. No word yet on the cause of death, but Claude Bassett's gerth was taken in for questioning...the gerth had no comment.
