Cal’s latest road trip took him through Ottawa, which just so happens to be where a very notable UK alum often resides.
Coach met up with Kelly Knight Craft, UK graduate and current U.S. Ambassador to Canada, outside the U.S. Embassy on Saturday. Craft’s husband is none other than Joe Craft, lauded Kentucky businessman and namesake of UK basketball’s practice facility.
This was actually a bit of a tense time for Cal to visit the embassy; on Friday, mailroom employees intercepted a letter containing death threats and white powder intended for Ambassador Knight. This comes in the wake of President Trump instituting tariffs on metals against our northern neighbors. Canada is in the process of retaliating, so the relationship between countries is somewhat fraught at the moment.
Maybe this distraction is what allowed Cal to make his way into the presidential suite.
