Coach Cal interrupted Miles Bridges’ date


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 “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.

    In that situation, I believe I would have let it go to voice mail..

    I’m surprised he didn’t send Drake or World Wide Wes into the theater.

      Is Syracuse even allowed to field a basketball team anymore…? Ya know, with all the molestation and infractions and probations? I can’t keep up…..

      Lol, your team is currently on probation. Try again.

      We have Syracuse trolls now?

      How does it feel that Calipari has as many Final Fours in 5 years at Kentucky as Boehiem has in 40 at Syracuse? It must be nice having a lazy, overrated coach who can’t win games when it counts because he relies on a zone.

      … and he picks his nose too.

  3. Drew, you forgot to mention that those snacks would set Miles back about 50 bucks these days.

    I sure hope Cal didn’t interrupt anything and cause a lackonookie for the young man. That would not play well.

    Tom Crean would have been stalking the kid and hovering over him from the seat behind.

      And thinking about him a lot, a whole lot.
