Coach Calipari visited Owensboro after he was hired at the University of Kentucky for a charity dinner for the Cliff Hagan Boys & Girls Club.
His speech was enlightening, touching, funny and telling he had a goal in place for his coaching time at UK. He demonstrated he was THE guy for this job. After the Billy Gillispie era, UK fans were primed for the fresh and professional approach that Calipari promised(and delivered).
Michael Hicks of A Unique Video, along with Terry Woodward of WaxWorks/VideoWorks and Team Marketing put a video together that spotlighted the 7 titles UK had at the time of John Calipari’s arrival that was shown at the dinner event in Owensboro. The video was shown just before his speech. Calipari liked it so much he approaced Michael Hicks and said, “Let’s make a DVD of this and get it out there”…
Team Marketing, along with UK, released a double DVD collectors edition that features both the 20 minute version and a longer version in the collection. You can purchase your copy by clicking on the DVD cover below.
