Yesterday I went to the Derby Classic practice, mainly to get to hear comments from Daniel Orton and Jon Hood and hopefully catch a glimpse of potential future Cat, Nolan Dennis. Alas, Dennis’s flight was late and the Orton/Hood comments were very similar to past weeks, so there was no real news upon which to hang my hat. So I was thus left with looking for other stories and one that stuck out was the aura of new Louisville commitment Mike Marra. So lets say we were looking for the perfect UL player to hate. Would you choose a white guy with a clown in a straight jacket tattoo and a fauxhawk who could shoot like money from the outside? If the answer was yes, Mike Marra is the guy for you!
Seriously, on the court Marra is going to be the guy you love to hate. He will drain threes from every spot on the court and he is as deadeye as anyone in the class. But when you see Marra and the tattoos (which are even more striking in person than in the picture above), well then move over Matt Walsh….there is a new head honcho on the UK fans’ radar screen.
