Coach Cal will see the Pope tomorrow

While you and I are doing regular, human being things tomorrow, John Calipari will be in Washington to meet the Pope.

Pope Francis landed in the States yesterday to a red-carpet welcome (greeted by your boy Obama) and he will tour various parts of the country over his six-day stay. Tomorrow, he will meet the head coach of your University of Kentucky Wildcats in D.C.

Following the UK alumni charity game earlier this month, Calipari said of his scheduled visit with the Pope, “I don’t know if I’m going to be able to kiss his ring, but I’m going to be there listening to him.”

Cal plans to attend the Pope’s address to the Joint Meeting of Congress.

    Drew, I’m a libertarian and that does not equal Obama … but I’m sure a few in Kentucky love him.

    Sitting here trying to complete these Gawd-awful government forms for ACA compliance and Medicare for my employees and getting madder by the minute with the beaurcracy, so I go to KSR for some relief from the BS. First thing I see is about Obama!! I HATE Obama. Lets concentrate on UK sports please.

      Its Obama’s fault. I don’t know how and why, but it’s definitely Obama’s fault. In fact, I don’t know a lot of things but that’s okay because I just turn on fox news and they tell me what to think, say, and do. Because when it comes right down to it, I’m just another cellar dwelling, republican suck pump with low intelligence, and no money. I spent it all on guns, more guns, bigger guns, and lots and lots of ammo, rations, and ted nugget books and records. Never mind the ACA was created by Republicans. Congressional Republicans had PLENTY of opportunity to weigh in and gave many considerations for the bill that were included, but later decided not to vote for it because of that danged Ol’ Obama.

      So again, it’s definitely Obama’s fault. In fact, fox news tells me that everything that is wrong, everywhere, is Obama’s fault. And it’s always going to be Obama’s fault. So screw the so called facts from anyone else other than fox news. Because Obama lies, and OBAMA LIES! AND ITS ALWAYS GOING TO BE OBAMA’S FAULT!

      So, i’ma thinking that I should get used to it always being Obama’s fault, and you should too! I know all this to be true because fox news wouldn’t lie to me, right?

      I find it amusing that dems criticize republicans for watching fox news and claim that it is biased, yet they watch cnn & msnbc and claim that there is zero bias. the hypocrisy is downright laughable.

      Uh, no George, you at least had good intentions for our country, while I’ve been screwing over everyone on purpose since elected. The funny thing is I still have a lot of people fooled.

      Well barrack where is your proof of him purposely screwing over people? while i gave billions of dollars in tax breaks for the rich and went about arming AL Qaeda and the Taliban and giving weapons to our enemy Iran but no one cared then. thank god everyone flips out about the black guy trying to keep them from getting weapons. oh yeah i also took money out of social security to fund my abysmal failure of “reagonomics” And also went about screwing over the mentally ill also. do you research buddy, Obama is actually one of the best presidents we’ve had since Kennedy, so if you want to continue getting schooled on something you obviously know nothing abou comment some more bullshit.



    • Yes President Reagan

      One of the best presidents since Kennedy? I can assure you JFK would NEVER have struck the deal dear leader just struck with Iran. No way in hell he would of assured the Iranians would aquire a nuclear war head and missles to deliver them to the US with. Folks like you make me want to puke.

      My God, please do not compare JFK to the guy in the white house now.

    1.) That is John Paul II (Roman for “the Sequel”) in the picture, not Pope Francis.
    2.) Obama is not my boy, but I can see you were joking.

      I understand the Pontiff can both drain the three and is always a threat to slash into the paint and be threat off the dribble. We could find a spot for him in 2017.

    Did Barack Hussein Obama meet the Pope at the airport? I thought Obama was 40 minutes late to the base. Show some Respect, or was Obama praying towards Mecca?

    Just sayin’

    How can an innocuous post about Coach Cal meeting the Pope turn into a diatribe for extremist views? How can anything improve in this country with idiots on both sides resorting to name calling instead of intelligent dialogue to overcome our differences?

    He isn’t ‘meeting the Pope’ he’s going to listen to him speak. Literally millions of people are doing this over the weekend. I know everyone who sees him will claim they met him. Because, America.

    Members of Congress with the aisle seats were told to not try to touch/shake hands with the Pope as he made his way down the aisle for the joint address. So unless he’s meeting him somewhere else, which I think is doubtful, he’s only seeing the address, not meeting him. Still cool, though.

    I cannot believe you wrote the words “your BOY Obama.” I don’t like racism and politics mixed up with following the Kentucky Wildcats. Very disappointed. Just wanted to let you know why I’ll be unfollowing you. There are a ton of places to get Kentucky Wildcats coverage without being subjected to racist remarks and devise politics.

    Steve atcher, only racist see the world as racist. “Your boy” is a phrase used to describe someone who the speaker doesnt particularly like. Like if we were talking about you, I would say “hey, there is your boy steve atcher” What a douche bag you are, steve. Smoke a joint and join 2015. I sure would like round house kick you in the fuxkin mouth.
