More Disgusting News: This morning, just after listening to all the racist rednecks who listen to Francene call in to complain about Pres. Obama and his health care speech last night, I got Billy Reed’s well-written piece about how UK fans were incensed that Coach Calipari sent the Commander in Chief a UK jersey. He had to take down his post after too many racist comments showed up that was “not representative of UK basketball.” Sorry, Coach, but it is. [BillyReedSays]
Fox41 Gets Video: Outraged parents in Breckenridge County are threatening to sue the local public high school over that trip to church the football coach took his team on. The coach and school superintendent aren’t talking to media. And Fox41 got some video of the baptisms. Amazingly, a lot of folks don’t think it’s that big a deal. [Fox41]
Some Good News: That goon from South Carolina who called the President a liar during his speech last night? His opponent has raised a boatload of cash today. [USA Today]
Mayor on Fourth: Jerry Abramson got around to answering questions about Cordish on WHAS-TV today. Rachel Platt asked if he’d do anything differently. Rather than answering, he talked about how great it was that they kept the spot open on Fourth Street. He does point out, rightly, that the Metro Council did authorize the payments. [WHAS-TV]
More Cordish News: LEO’s follow-up on the spending down there includes anonymous comments from developers, all of whom say they could have done the job for a lot less than $950K. [LEO]
Back to Hoops: OK, Coach, we’re willing to go ahead and act like it’s just like any other basketball season. The Cards will be on national TV 14 times this year, including a rematch with my Hilltoppers (remember, WKU won last year) at Freedom Hall Dec. 19. The Kentucky game is at Rupp Jan. 2. It is the last season at Freedom Hall. [Cards]
