I don't know how she did it, but a big shoutout to J-Bram for taking this pic behind heavy tears.[/caption]   For those that attended the University of Kentucky, many groggy mornings were spent inside the disgusting grease-trap known as K-Lair. From 1961-2013, K-Lair's triple cheeseburgers, cheese fries, and onion rings carried enough grease to give a small horse a heart attack, but something about the dingy place made it the best of the best. I was lucky enough to see it before they ruined it with renovation and a new menu, but I'll never forget how spicy those chicken fingers were, or that you needed at least 3 cups of ranch per styrofoam to-go container. I cannot bring deliciousness back, but I can pay tribute to the place that caused thousands to reach their Freshmen 15 destiny. We cannot mourn with tears, we must remain joyful with laughter (that's what K-Lair would have wanted), so today I am giving you Kentucky Football's "All-Name" Team. These names are all 100% real, just like those delicious hamburger patties. Before I get too hungry, these are the best of the best that you will be seeing on the field before too long.   Fall 2013 All-Name Team - Bookie Cobbins - Mister Cobble -  Teven Eatmon-Nared, or as we like to call him 'TEN' - John "Big Jack" Gruenschlaeger (I prefer the spelling "Grubbenshlazenheisenstausein") - "DJ" Khalid Henderson - Farrington Huguenin - Shaquille Love - Kadeem "Pancho" Thomas (Don't ask how he got the nickname Pancho, because it is the furthest thing from politically correct) - Javess 'Bleeds' Blue - Jaleel Hytchye - Za'Darius Smith   Class of 2014 Honorable Mentions (Not all are commits) - Jarrett LaRubbio (I can't say his name without yelling 'BANG-A-RANG' in search for my childhood leader Ruffio) - Thaddeus 'Bluegrass' Snodgrass - Shyquawn Pulliam (his name was the straw that broke the camel's back for this post, send your thanks his way) - Stanley "Boom" Williams (One of the few quotation marked nicknames that I didn't make up, he really goes by BOOM) - Derek "Chief" Kief - Braxton "Honey Nut" Berrrios
