If you’re nothing like me, you’ve always wondered what goes down inside a Lexington Rotary meeting. Business deals? Evil belly laughs? Virgin sacrifices? Unless one of us one of us magically becomes an outstanding leader in our vocation or achieves and important position in our firm, we might never know. But thanks to Matt Jones on KSR this morning, we know what happened at yesterday’s meeting. Coach Cal happened.
John Calipari was the guest speaker and after saying that the only time he saw a newspaper in Memphis was when he ran over it with his car and noting that he won’t even go that far in Lexington, Coach Cal went a step further. He told the group that he knows that the local paper is negative and said that in five years, it will be a once-a-week newspaper. There was apparently some debate between those in attendance about whether Cal was referencing newspapers in general or the Herald-Leader specifically, but that’s not really important. What matters is that we finally have a foot in the door of the Rotary’s secrets. We shall all soon be enlightened.
