Miles Bridges took a young lady to see “The Gallows” Monday night in his hometown during a break in his intense July schedule. The night probably started like a typical movie date: box of Sno-Caps; those gigantic, 180-ounce Cokes; sitting in the darkest part of the theater; the yawn/arm-around move, etc.
But then John Calipari called and interrupted, which has never happened to me (or you) while sitting at the movies with a girl.
“I had to ask, could I call him back,” Bridges told mLive.com. “Coaches usually just call to check to see how I’m doing and to see if I’m still interested.”
Kentucky is among Bridges’ final five schools and Calipari calls him a lot, knowing he’s in a fight with Michigan State and Michigan for the five-star prospect. Bridges is also considering North Carolina and Indiana. (LOL at Indiana.)
I can’t help but wonder how Cal handled the “call you back later” from one of his top targets. Cal seems like the type that would expect someone to ditch her so they can talk. I’m surprised he didn’t walk in and sit with them, honestly.
