Joey Sulipeck of Fox 13 in Memphis took a break from reading the weather to rant about John Calipari’s comments from Cal’s Hall of Fame press conference.
In case you missed it, Cal spoke highly of his time at UMass and Memphis, but compared those jobs to sitting at the little table with plastic utensils, and now he’s “carving the turkey” at Kentucky.
Sulipeck leaked salt all over the news when asked about it:
Sulipeck’s full comments, via LostLettermen.com:
â€‹“It was a cheap shot. What he just said was ignorant and cheap. He’s a spin doctor. I hope somebody YouTubes this and sends it to him. That cat is a spin doctor, snake oil salesman that will turn anything in his direction. To come in here and talk about ‘how much I love Memphis and I support all these charities,’ please. When we play at the level we’ve played for as long as we have, Memphis is not a one-and-done school. “Say you’re at the kid table with plastic utensils? Give me a plastic utensil and walk by me, Calipari. You don’t demean an entire program and say it’s the kid table and plastic utensils, got history like the Memphis program. Come on.”
Did a weatherman just threaten to stab Cal with a spork?
Easy there, Joe Joe. Play nice or we’ll take away your mac and cheese and juice.
