I want sports in the fall. You want sports in the fall. We all want sports in the fall. Know how we can help make that happen? Wear a freaking mask. Kentucky Basketball coach John Calipari took to Twitter to share that message with his 1.6 million followers, covering up his magnificent quarantine beard with a UK mask in a minute-long video.
Wear a mask!!! Let’s take care of each other. We are going to get through this but we need to do it TOGETHER and help each other out. The best way to do that is to put that mask on when you’re out in public. #TeamKentucky #TogetherKy pic.twitter.com/zGftHtxR8p

“It’s Coach Cal and yes, I am ready for basketball. I’m ready to get our students back on campus but we have to protect each other. We’ve got to wear our masks. If you go in a building, if you’re going to be in social distancing range, inside of six feet, have a mask. It protects everybody but we’re hearing now it will protect you.
“We, in our state, have done an unbelievable job. Let’s take it up a notch. This is kind of like when I’m coaching, we’re winning, and I’m being even harder. We are winning. Let’s be stronger.
“Understand, this isn’t a statement. The only statement we make when we put a mask on is, we care about you, and to be honest, now, you’re caring about yourself.
“Wear that mask, folks. Thanks.”
LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK.
