Several happy birthdays to pass around today, starting with Ellen Calipari. It’s been great to see Ellen come out of her shell this season as she supports her son Brad (even if Cal does make one too many references to how Brad’s playing time affects their love life). Ellen always bakes brownies for the players on their special days, so let’s hope they return the favor today. Brad’s Instagram post wishing his mother a happy birthday was pretty adorable:
Also, happy birthday to Joe B. Hall, who celebrates 88 trips around the sun today, and Allison Peevy, the wonderful wife of DeWayne Peevy, UK’s deputy director of athletics. Make it count, guys.
