Ain’t no party like a Billy Clyde party…

Here we go again, folks.  You might remember earlier in the summer that we had a series called “Where in the World is Billy Clyde Gillispie?”, where we hired a paparazzi to follow around Coach Clyde to figure out what he was doing after the NABC ruled he could no longer offer scholarships to youngsters.  Well, we have a treat for you, sweet readers.  It seems that Coach Clyde had a super-secret, super-exclusive party after the Ouachita Baptist game Friday to celebrate his 49th birthday and, armed with all those funds from Boone’s Butcher Shop, we were able to purchase a few pics from our paparazzo friend. 


Krebs was at the door, keeping out the tools, underage girls and Matt  Jones.

Coach was moved to tears when Patrick Patterson did his ballet tribute titled “Remember, you said 15-18 shots a game”.

Things got a bit uncomfortable when Gillispie discovered that Mark Coury was actually working the party as a waiter.  He assured Coury that his invitation must have been lost in the mail and Coury’s service was fantastic the rest of the evening.

Coach threw ’em back all night.

Dusty Mills managed to get past Krebs somehow and had quite the evening.

While the creativity was appreciated, Bromley still left coach feeling uncomfortable.

Rich Brooks had to go and kick someone’s ass.

All in all, it seemed like quite the night and I am definitely jealous that I wasn’t on the list.  Oh well, there’s still 12 months to step up my game and get into the 50th bash.  If any of you were lucky enough to get in to this shindig, please feel free to share your stories below.  I bet there are some good ones.
