We all know King James was in Lexington last night playing pickup basketball with the Cayuts, but apparently he is still in town hanging out with the guys. Earlier today, LeBron tweeted, “Rolling through Lex with (Brandon Weems). UK is all over this city. It’s only right.” Which makes me wonder – what would a Miami celebrity like LeBron James do in a city like Lexington? It’s a great place to you and me, but for an outsider like LeBron, what could he possibly do today to entertain himself? Let’s take some guesses….
— Tour all six stops on the KY Bourbon Trail… It’s what everyone does when they visit Kentucky. You don’t get that kind of sweet amber nectar down on South Beach. I just wonder if LeBron will dip a bottle in the Maker’s wax or pass it to Dwyane Wade to dip it for him. (Just kidding, Lebron. Love you.)
— Visit a horse farm… And do stuff that people do at horse farms.
— Drink an Ale-8-One… When in Lexington, do as the Lexingtonians do. Although, that might violate his contract with Sprite.
— Buy Ale-8-One… Why not?
— Watch an episode of KSTV… Weeknights at 7:30 and 11:00 or anytime on Insight On Demand Channel 103.
— Eat at Tolly Ho… The man’s gotta eat, right? I bet he’s hunched over a Super Ho and a side of cheddar tots right now.
— Pizzadillas at Tin Roof… Maybe pinball and fist fights aren’t LeBron’s thing. He could walk right around the corner from the Craft Center and eat one of Tin Roof’s hybrid quesadillas. They’re awesome. He could even donate some Cleveland junk to Wes and Tim to hang on the walls or say hi to Josh Harrellson who is probably there somewhere.
— Play wide receiver for Kentucky… Does LeBron have any eligibility on the gridiron? He fits the mold for a wide receiver and I know a team that desperately needs one. Suit him up, Joker.
— Orange Leaf… Nah.
