Coach Cal gets 70 miles to the gallon on this hog

llyod-calipari

After his daughters spread a little rumor on Twitter last night that John Calipari used to ride a Vespa to work, Cal came on the KSR airwaves and confirmed that he did indeed ride the little Italian scooter to and fro. He also admitted that he still owns it and will occasionally ride it around Lexington, but no one recognizes him in his helmet.

So be on the lookout for a yellow Vespa, Big Blue Nation.

“He traded the van for it, straight up.”

    I live close to Cal and have seen him trying to walk his dog while riding the vespa.

    Pitino’s bike was specially made. It gets 200 miles a gallon on aborted fetus juice.

    Cal on a scooter is pretty cool if you ask me! Better than taking some huge SUV on a short trips.

    We have been overwhelmed with requests for information about Vespa scooters since Cal told us he owned one.

    Paul Miller Ford is the only authorized Vespa dealer in Lexington. Cal will be there tomorrow between 12 and 2 and anyone who buys a Vespa will get an UK jersey autographed by every player from the championship team

    12, you must have missed the gif that someone put together with Cal/Brooks/Barnhart and Lee Todd in an open jeep when Cal arrived. The best ever!
