What Keegan Says

March 5, 2010


The Lakers have Jack Nicholson. Kentucky basketball has Ashley Judd. The Red Sox have Stephen King. And now, finally, after all these years of basketball dominance, Kansas University has a celebrity fan.

For a change, Samantha Ryan was the one doing the star-gazing Wednesday night in Allen Fieldhouse. The porn star reportedly has racked up 141 films (compared to a mere 49 for Meryl Streep) and has directed one titled, well, maybe we’ll check our swings on the title. Anyway, she’s been busy as a bee and still found time to watch her alma mater crush Kansas State. She even posed for a photo with Big Jay and posted a link to it on her Twitter page: “SammyRyRy.”

Ryan lists playing poker among her passions. Here’s hoping she makes it back into Lawrence for the poker event of the season, “Dealing With Alzheimer’s,” a Texas Hold’em benefit tournament slated for Saturday, April 17, at Lawrence Country Club. The 6 p.m. event open to the public includes a $75 donation per player. Mark your calendars and cross your fingers.

That's a long way to go to promote a poker tournament for a very worthy cause, Tom, but I'll let it slide.

Wait... porn star? "Poker?"
