Calipari does not want your bacon

calipari-bacon

John Calipari is currently signing copies of his new book in Owensboro this evening and one fan, Chris Riley, stopped by to offer him some bacon. Calipari declined the delicious gift, a move he’ll one day regret when the entire world runs out of it.

Well played, Chris.

    I saw this happen. Guy took so long in line. Don’t think Cal was amused. And then it was over. And we all forgot.

    I’m literally working like a half a mile away from this. Wish I could of made it. A couple of my fellow big blue die hards called in “sick” to work today. I should have done the same.

    No red blooded Amurikan turns down bacon

      Actually if you never turn down bacon you might end up with blood that is a yellowish, plaque color. Better to eat it in moderation.

  10. Maybe if he’d have cooked it first Cal would have been a taker.

      Go back and listen to the KSR from today. They talk about bacon becoming a hot commodity soon because of some virus affecting pigs.

      Side note: Cal has a “this guy is freakin’ nuts” look on his face and Walmart is getting some free publicity here lol.

    Chris “the Rock” Riley is a legend. A classic pic, though Cal could not look more displeased.

      He was “big sexy” freshman year at ochs. I can’t even remember, was that Kevin Nash?

    It’s Wal-Mart bacon. Gotta splurge for Cal.

    Thought Cal was meeting with twins today? Any word?

    I told Cal that I dye my beard and send pics of me getting out of the shower to my friends. I only became a Cat fan this year and I bought two pounds of bacon but ate one while standing in line !

    So I heard that the twins were spotted at Malone’s Steakhouse in Lexington with their dad and a couple other guys. Can anyone confirm?

      Yes he was in today. Also, WWW was here with a lot of money. Drake was here doing a MTV spot.

    If you’re giving him bacon in Owensboro at the very least it should be Fields

      This bacon thing could’ve become another Cal help out others situation. Organizers of this book tour could have a cooler ready and accept all fans bacon then donate to a local shelter. Instead of this just being a funny Matt missed an opportunity to help others.

    Who is that man sitting beside the man with bacon?

    Maybe it should have been bacon from Boone’s Butcher Shop?



  25. WTF?!
    7:02 pm April 22, 2014 Permalink

    What time did Cal get there? Saw he was in NC but also thought he was supposed to meet with the Harrison’s. I realize that jets fly fast so I’m not saying he couldn’t get this all in, but just wondering.

    Wow…Cal has lightning quick speed, yanking his hand away from the bacon.

    Malones story is made up. They gave too many details plus I know an agent very well. They don’t meet like that. It just isn’t done. Plus a nice girl on twitter says they were at Red Lobster. There’s no pictures. Someone is yanking your chain.



  28. well...
    7:43 pm April 22, 2014 Permalink

    That was insulting. You dont’ gift cheap Wal-mart bacon. People, please don’t trend this idea of giving Calipari bacon. Cheap bacon is not worth the hassle and it’s STUPID. Think about this.
