Please stop mailing things to Coach Cal’s house


Unless you’re his lifelong pen pal or Orange Leaf’s rewards program, it’s not okay to ship stuff to John Calipari’s house. Good job, good effort, but no. That’s not acceptable.

Cal took to Twitter this afternoon to ask fans to please refrain from sending items to his home to be signed. We’re not shocked to find out people do it, but we do find it hilarious that he has to ask people to stop.

    Ok The NBA comish was doing an interview and he was asked if the 14 year run between the the spurs first and last visit or the heat run of three straight was more impressive. His response “reluctantly” was the the spurs because I quote “the heat only won one title if they had won two he might have chose them”

    Does that mean my tupperware salad container will be returned empty? Darn it. That’s OK, Ellen can use it to replace one of those Cal lost.

    It’s just fan mail. Everyone who has ever been famous has to deal with it. Would I ever mail something to Coach Cal? No. But, I don’t think it’s too big of a deal.

    I hope Drew has an article later today with the top 10 items that caused Cal to take to Twitter to tell us to knock it off…

    10) Did you read the article, or just the headline?… They are not sending him fan mail, they are sending him stuff for him to sign and presumedly for him to send back. And even fan mail doesn’t usually go to a celebrity’s home address. The saddest part is it’s probably mostly adults that are doing this

    In light of all the ricin and whatever else is being sent to people, I wouldn’t want that volume of mail coming to my house either. It needs to go to the UK mail processing center so it can be dealt with properly. People are too crazy to be sending all that ish to Cal’s house, especially with his family living there too. That’s a real concern for someone like Cal.

    In other news Ricky p took to twitter to encourage people to send him things.

    @rickythreepump: Any body that wants a signature please send it my way… Maybe a McDonald’s all American LOI or an abortion clinic terms and agreement. Also if you want a pic with the NC trophy come on by. I swear it’s as if no one even cares. Ill set it out on my front porch because I know no one will take it so come on by and get a pic.

    Why hasn’t #20 been taken down yet? Your comments are totally classless. Discrimination shouldn’t be tolerated towards any social group. If that comment was made towards the black community it would have already been taken down and been chastised by several people, why is it ok to do to EKY.
    #20 You do realize that the money from EKY has made UK basketball possible. If it wasn’t for the money from Joe Craft, Elmer Whitcker, and LD Gorman there would be no craft center or Rupp!
    KSR should list your E-mail address and IP address for making suck rude and hurtfull statements. It’s a shame your allowed to hide behind a screen name because you don’t have the balls to make such statements with your real name!

    #20 KES would you make that same statement about Blacks, Jews, Hispanics, or any other minority group! It’s just a shame in this day and age we still have trash like you! People from east Kentucky are no different from any one else. Do we have some bad people sure, but no worse then any where else. I wish you would grow some balls and post your real name when making such a cowardly statement.
    KSR act like pro’s and remove that trash he wrote.
    I wish that Craft and the others would stop being so gracious with their money and stop giving to UK for a couple years. I bet then the respect for E KY would be shown and the first time a liberal professor tried to protest coal, they would be shown the door!

    I think Cal should auction off all of the stuff that idiots have sent to his house for his Foundation.

    Thank you for taking down the old #20. You should post people’s email and IP address who write such foolishness. I bet if their info was made public and they couldn’t hide behind their screen name a lot of that foolishness would stop!
