More photos of the Joe B. Hall statue

“The pigeons will appreciate it,” Coach Hall said at the unveiling of his 400-pound bronze sculpture outside Wildcat Coal Lodge.

“John, I see you didn’t use the picture I gave you of Gregory Peck,” he joked of his likeness.

    Is this something that UK did on their own or did Cal get this going? Either way, I really like it.

    How awesome would it be if it really was just Joe B. in bronze makeup just sitting there. All day, every day. Until you get really close and then he jumps up and scares you. Then you laugh and he just gives the famous Joe B. Hall belly laugh and sits back down awaiting his next victim.

    I am now wondering why wasn’t I consulted for this project?

    I like these new photos better. The earlier ones made Joe B resemble Joe Pa.

    Looks like he’s struggling with a unusually large loaf.

    My father related to me why Joe B. Hall resigned the best job in basketball with the best player in the college game coming back the next year, he had some direct knowledge of that would have been a huge scandal. While I admire Calipari’s generosity to him, he does not deserve to be honored. His disgrace was private.

    8) Of course we believe you with that excellent source you quoted. You at least could have mentioned how in the world your dad could have known that. But I’m guessing since you didn’t, he just suspects.

    Part # 2, My father told me there would be people like #8. Hiding behind a screen name, making baseless allegations. Just like the other U of L “fans”.

    At least clean the coal dust off Bronze Joe B …. or slide one of those chairs in front of the wretched name.
