The Cats beat the weather to Nashville


With inclement weather in the forecast, John Calipari rounded up his team and got a head start on the trip to Nashville. Normally they would wait until tomorrow to make the trip for a Saturday away game, but the Music City is expecting hazardous travel conditions this weekend, so the Cats arrived Thursday night to ensure they’re ready to go for Saturday’s game.

The early arrival means a lot of free time for the guys on Friday. If it were me, I would check out the top floor of Rippy’s then maybe walk over to Tootsie’s for a couple and then Tin Roof and then a shot-n-go at Paradise Park before dinner. But that’s just me. They probably shouldn’t do that.

Beat Vandy though.

    Oh Drew. There can’t be more than 1 or 2 guys on the team over 21, if that.

      What about spending the time practicing basketball. Lord knows they need all they can get! Just a thought. They are going to be professionals after all. Basketball should be their number one concern.

    It’s not hard to tell who wrote this. Drew is an honorary Nashville citizen.

      I don’t mind Drew having fun in Nashville on the weekends, and talking about the places he likes there, (as he did in this post), but it somewhat bothers me when Mrs. TT promotes Nashville as much as she does, and acts like it’s a perfect city. I like her writing and understand that she lives there but… the reality is that most of the readers here take great pride in the state of Kentucky (as mentioned on the radio today), and when we here this crap about Nashville it’s almost offensive to us.

      There is a lot about this comment that makes me angry, especially coming off a week in which I was home with my family in Kentucky. But the great thing about the internet is, if you don’t like my posts, just scroll on by. Sorry I offend you so.

      Let’s not take this out of context here. I specifically said I like her writing. I am sincerely sorry if I offended you. (And I mean that)

      Sounds like someone is mad that Kentucky is mostly a shithole…since that is the operative word of the day

    5. Eazy

      Mostly poor but also mostly beautiful. And Lexington is consistently ranked near the top of quality of life studies. Smaller but nicer than Nashville.

    6. HackRichards

      Just remember that crap flows down stream…and Louisville is definitely downstream…and Nashville may be too.

    7. Eazy

      Speaking of shitholes, Tennessee is pretty bad outside of Nashville. Lexington is way nicer than Knoxville. And Memphis barely edges out Louisville.

    If I span down and read the article without paying attention to the author, it’s funny how without exception I can always tell when it’s been written by one Drew Franklin. There’s 3 people on the team over 21. Coach Cal, John Robic and Kenny Payne…I’m thinking they can sneak Coach Justice in to Tootsies if they know what they’re doing. Brad…you’re in charge of curfew!

      Cal will be heading straight to the nearest Dunkin Donuts.

      You can say that again, katmandue2you.

    Head over to the Vanderbilt Kappa Sigma fraternity house and knock down a few on “the corner”

  7. catsarerunnin

    Yes Drew I’ve seen you in action in Nashville. So people listen up. He knows what he’s talking about. In this instance anyway.

    ^5 on Kindly. She’ll Definitely keep the kids entertained

    I happen to live in KY’s largest city and must admit, Nashville is LIGHTYEARS ahead of loserville. But hey, we’ve got the ‘possibility city’ moniker going for us and mayor McBike Lane !! This city will NEVER be in the same league as Nashville, and that’s truly unfortunate.

    1. Eazy

      Yep. Louisville needs an NBA team in the worst way. Also, Lexington isn’t as big but is also light years ahead of Louisville in education, income…quality of life overall.
