LISTEN: John “Billy Joe” Calipari talks with Ellen Calipari on KSR

A peculiar person called in to Friday morning’s edition of Kentucky Sports Radio to speak to Ellen Calipari.

A caller named Billy Joe asked in a crackly voice, “Can I speak to Mrs. Cal?”

Ellen quickly caught on. “Oh, no. My roommate would not allow it.”

For the next ten minutes the Caliparis teased each other, taking one friendly shot after another. The most intriguing moment happened when John shared how Ellen’s painting skills convinced him to chase after her years ago in Kansas. She kept the upper hand for most of the conversation, until he dropped this line:

“When I look back, I should’ve married for money, but it worked out okay.”

Those few quotes simply cannot do it justice. Listen to the entire laugh out loud discussion, beginning at the 24:20 mark of today’s podcast.

    There’s a video of Cal taking one of two
    Garbage cans to the road. Ellen then tells him he’s the real one and done!
