John Calipari’s TV tour has gotten out of control


John Calipari has been everywhere, ever since the release his new book, “Success is the Only Option: The Art of Coaching Extreme Talent.”

The new book hit shelves last Tuesday and he hung around New York City after his team’s win over Michigan State to promote the book on various television and radio shows around town.

You may have heard him on The Rich Eisen ShowImus In The Morning, or taped interviews with Sports Illustrated and CNN Money.

Or maybe you saw him on Fox Business’s Mornings with Maria, or on Watters’ World, or on Fox News’ popular morning show, Fox & Friends…


He also appeared on SportsCenter and CNBC’s Squawk on the Street at the New York Stock Exchange…


The man has literally been everywhere, in front of any camera that will put him on national television. The list goes on and on and on, and we shared many of the interviews with you here on Kentucky-Sports-Radio-dot-com.

But Cal also made some appearances that flew under the radar; shows that, for whatever reason, just didn’t get the word out that Kentucky’s head coach was stopping by.

For instance, I tuned in to The Today Show (as I do each morning) and there he was, smashing wine by the bottle and talking about handbags with Kathie Lee and Hoda…


Then I flipped over to The Price Is Right, only to find Cal in the Showcase Showdown, where he won a new dining set, a pontoon boat and a trip to Tokyo…


Some of you might’ve seen him on Rachael Ray’s annual Thanksgiving show, where she taught him to cook a turkey and her famous cranberry sauce…


And maybe the most unbelievable cameo of his TV tour, he was seen chatting with Dolores Abernathy in last night’s Westworld on HBO…



The Westworld plot revealed that Calipari is indeed a robot.

    Cal actually looks surprisingly authentic as a cowpoke.

    Why don’t you guys set up an Amazon affiliate marketing account and link to Cal’s book? You’ll get 6-8% on book sales and probably 8% on other things people buy (with this site’s volume) for 24 hours after they click on the link. Probably an easy $10k over the next month and a half. Boom, Christmas party money. No need for thanks, just an invite to the party will suffice.
