Some in the mainstream national media are recognizing the work of Coach Calipari and the UK fans with the Hoops for Haiti telethon this past weekend. Today The Sporting News had an article in which it referenced the event and the coaches that called in to donate money for the effort. The site noted that many estimates before the event were that it would raise between $30,000-40,000, but that those were wildly exceeded. This comes on the heels of some positive compliments from Mike and Mike this morning and Dick Vitale, who praised Cal and the UK fanbase’s efforts.
While I am as excited as anyone that the Cats may return to #1, the efforts on Sunday are what make me even more proud to be a UK fan.
