The four-year wait for frigid sports is over. The 2018 Winter Olympics have officially begun in Pyeongchang. Curling and figure skating started last night.

John Calipari Speaks
The Kentucky head basketball coach will be back at the podium this afternoon around 2:00 to talk about the Cats’ difficult road trip to College Station. He might also have something to say about UK’s finalized deal to remain at Rupp Arena through 2033. We’ll have a live stream and all the coverage you need right here on Kentucky Sports Radio dot com.
