Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

How much would you pay to watch a game with Walter McCarty?

On today’s radio show, Matt introduced us to Thuzio.com, a website specializing in professional athlete appearances. Through Thuzio, you can book your favorite athlete for just about any event under the sun, including fantasy football drafts, dinners, or a round of golf. Former Cats Walter McCarty and John Conner both have profiles on the site. Here are some of the events you can book:

Pick-up Game with Walter McCarty — $5,000 per hour
Make your next pick-up game unforgettable by inviting Walter McCarty to join.

Lunch or dinner with Walter — $1,500
Walter will join you and your guests at lunch or dinner. You choose the restaurant and you choose what you want to talk about. Walter will share stories from his career. (Up to 2 hours)

Celebrations with John Conner — $2,500
Invite John to join you and your guests at your birthday, bar/bat mitzvah, wedding, or anniversary party! He’ll be sure to be entertaining company.

Individual Coaching with John Conner — $2,000
John will be your personal coach giving you access to a NFL starting fullback. John will take you through NFL drills and plays. You’ll learn firsthand what it takes to be a NFL player.

That got me thinking about what people would pay to book other Kentucky celebrities, or dare I say it, your friends here at KSR. Off the top of my head…

    Lunch with Pitino at Porcini’s free? No says I. it costs you your virginity, your dignity, and your sanity. in addition you will receive $3,000.00 to pay for your “health insurance”.

    Kudos to 48! especially the first one!
    Share a bathroom stall with Jorts and BCG – busfare.
    Time traveling with Bobby K. back to that fateful night we took his perfect season away! I’d pay anything!
    And personally, if i had seats next to Judd, i’d give them away.
