One…er, Many Rings to Rule Them All

Earlier this year, our dearly departed (only in the blogosphere, folks) friend Matthew Hays wrote mentioned Coach Calipari’s gracious treatment of his former coach at Clarion, Joe DeGregorio. Cal has been very generous with his actions towards both DeGregorio and his other former coach, Joe Sacco.

The same writer mentioned in the old post, Mike White of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, tweeted some interesting info today — Calipari gave former coach DeGregorio an NCAA championship ring as well. That’s how you pay homage to your roots, my friends. You share your biggest accomplishments with them when you know they helped you get where you are today. I’m getting all sentimental and teary-eyed just thinking about how appreciated DeGregorio must feel sporting a piece of history given to him by a student of the game (Cal) who has chosen to never forget his mentors.

    any one who has been lucky enough to bump into Cal and have a conversation with him will tell you he is very gracious and down to earth. He tells his players to be kind to the public and reminds tham how lucky they are to have our fan support regularly. In other words he is the total opposite from Ricky two stacks. Cal more then anyone gets what this program means to us the fans. We are very lucky to have such a ambassador for our state.

    He hands them out like kids candy. Give everyone a ring Cal, everyone but the true fans of the program. What a joke he is.
