It’s going to be a big Thursday night in Lexington and it has nothing to do with the L.I.T.’s at Two Keys (is that where the kids still go?). Tonight, UK welcomes in NBC’s Bob Costas as the first guest in the Gidel/Lombardo Sports Communication Lecture Series. The world’s youngest-looking 58-year old will speak at Memorial Hall beginning at 6:30pm and tickets are free. Costas will opine on sports journalism as a career and talk about his legendary career that began in the early 70s as a student at Syracuse.
And, since I know everyone is wondering, I made my appearance fee known to the Gidel/Lombardo group via text yesterday and I am hopeful that a deal can be reached soon. The way I see it, $100k and a funky chicken pizza from Pazzo’s is a steal.
