Happy Fathers Day, everyone.
I hope this holiday of sorts is treating all of you well. Not everyone has a good relationship with their father or even know their dad at all sometimes. With that in mind, today is a good enough day as any to think back on life and be thankful that someone was able to spark your life into being somewhere down the line. I invite you to take a break from your Sunday brunch or what have you to pay our respects to some of figures that have spawned some great Commonwealth success. Here’s a tribute to some of my favorite UK dads:
Probably the most unique and unexpected persona to emerge out of UK was Joshua ‘Jorts Harrellson. His success story was a whirlwind ride that landed him in the NBA. We can all thank the ever-awesome Doug Harrellson for that.
Vince Calipari was a game changer. He’s been through tough family times with the passing of his wife, but the fact that he gave us all John Calipari is enough to sing his praises.
I didn’t realize the human genome project had gotten to the point of majesty that allowed Anthony Davis to sprout up out of nowhere, but Anthony Davis, Sr has mastered it. Yay science! This dad has given us a national title, and I couldn’t be happier.
In a time of need, Buster Patterson‘s boy came to the rescue for UK. Patrick was an integral part of making the early Billy G era not a complete and utter disaster. Thing could’ve gone much worse if Buster’s seed hadn’t turned out to be one of the most stand-up, hard-working players in UK history.
Last but certainly not least…our very own Thomas Beisner has turned out to be a great father. That, along with his new job, has caused him to step away from the site, but Beisner is one of KSR’s favorite fathers without a doubt.
