Did you think the Xavier Henry and John Wall saga couldnt get any longer or stranger? Think again. Jeff Drummond of TCP reports today that another hitch may have come into play that could keep Xavier Henry from visiting this weekend. What is that hitch? Well it seems that Friday night is Xavier’s prom and he wants to attend. And who can blame him? Prom night is a magical night, when you take your sweetest gal out in a big limousine, eat at the best restaurant in town (if you are Middlesboro, that would of course be the J. Milton’s Steakhouse) and then go dance the night away to the latest music like “Whoomp There It Is.” Prom night is a night you never forget, especially if you are lucky enough to get invited to Stephanie Mullins’ house for the afterparty.
Xavier wants to have just such a night…and that may keep him from coming to Lexington. Whether that will have any impact on his final decision remains to be seen, but for now one thing is clear….his decision to stay true to his prom keeps one young lady that goes to Putnam City High School from spending the evening in tears….and that benefits us all.
