    Cal, please stop hanging with trash. It doesn’t look good for BBN.

    If Karen Sypher only took 15 seconds you got about 1 in that one.

    When did Dirk Minnifield start waiting tables at Drake’s?

    #3 – Shut up. It’s a goodwill dinner. I appreciate that Cal and Pitino can be civil together. They don’t have to like each other, but it’s good for all parties involved when they are seen together. Personally, I like it.

    That girl ain’t bad either.

    It may be the graininess of the photo, but Pitino looks a lot less like death than he usually does.

    You forgot to mention that Dave Chappelle was in the pic, too.

    If they are at Drakes, why is the waiter wearing a Malones apron?

    Ron was a dear friend. Very sad news. Proud of the coaches to be able to join together in remembrance of a great man who will be very missed!

    I seriously hope Cal walked up to him, gave him a hug and slapped the hell out of his back like a long lost pal…like he didn’t know, but he did know.

    15. Because Malones and Drakes share one kitchen.

    Many heads just exploded looking at that picture. As George Costanza said, “worlds are colliding!”

    #15 – Because Drake’s and Malone’s are both owned by BHG, they’re spitting distance from one another on Tates Creek, and the waiter probably walked over to Drake’s from Malone’s, like plenty of others did, to get their picture with Calipari and Pitino?

    Alternatively, they may just share aprons between restaurants if you’re not working out in front of everyone, and I really have no clue if that is even a waiter. It may be a manager or someone working in the kitchen.

    Do they serve Italian food after the restaraunt closes at night? Why is the Louisville coach ever mentioned on this site? I don’t understand.

    I’m glad they can be cool around each other. Living outside of Kentucky this past year, I think UL winning actually helped the state overall. I still can’t cheer for them, but other than the Twitter tough guys and gangsters, my UL friends and fans that I’ve seen have been much more tolerable since they won. Kentucky owns college hoops.

    Headline: Pitino takes new girlfriend and tattoo to Malones, gets busted by Calipari.

    I guess this explains why there was a Lexus LFA in the parking lot, that thing is $350,000

    It’s great knowing why he was there & reading all the posts & tweets about it. Both Coach P & Coach Cal being there together was a simple coincidence. Coach Pitino has friends & business partners in Lexington.

    Everybody on her dogging Pitino. I hate the fact that he left, and don’t agree with things he’s done, but he’s also responsible for technically 2 Championships, almost 3, and 3 straight trips to the championship game, all for UK. Had it not been for Pitino, Carolina would’ve beaten us to 2K, and and Duke would probably have more championships. He’s got my respect.

    Dead on 34! I hope to not to have to tolerate that in their senior years.

    And 35, respect for Pitino is not needed. He respects himself more than he does his own family.

    Anyone commenting on anything other than the special man they are honoring should get some class and grow up. RIP Ron Rager. The world lost a beautiful soul. Glad to see these two come together for such a wonderful person.

    what’s wrong with these stupid haters. these two men came to tribute the passing of Ron Rager. Sometimes y’all need to forget about your selfishness and shut up. You heartless selfish sons of bitches.

    They’ll probably take over the Hall & Crum radio show when they retire.

    Wow. I can’t believe there is person who is dumb enough not knowing that Drkes n Malones at landsdowne are practically same restaurant. And other heartless stupid people who only cares about stupid basketball. Where do you think UK celebrates their occasions? At BHG restaurants. Who takescare of UK’s celebrations? RON RAGER. He passed away with cancer. Coach P and Coach Cal are at Drake’s/Malone’s in Landownes the original Malones and where Ron’s office was located.
    I have lost faith in all UK fans.

    Lay off all the stupid fans crap, a small portion of the Kentucky fans are actually living in Lexington, and the ones who don’t would care nothing to wipe their ass on everything Lexington except the ball team. Their not stupid fans, their ignorant so gain perspective losers.

    Or stop calling each other names when all we have is one thing bonding all of us anyway…duh

    41- I can’t believe it took you this long to realize how sad and pathetic the fan base is. When 95% didn’t graduate fro community college, let alone UK, and their lives completely revolve around obsessing over teenage boys, what do you expect
