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.

ESPN is reporting Eric Bledsoe has signed a 5 year, $70 million dollar deal with the Phoenix Suns.
“Movement on talks happened after the Minnesota Timberwolves made a final aggressive bid for Bledsoe when they attempted to get a sign-and-trade deal with Phoenix last week. The Wolves were prepared to give Bledsoe a four-year deal worth more than $60 million in such a trade, which strengthened Bledsoe’s position that he would be a commodity in the market next year.”
Bledsoe just came off his best season in the NBA averaging 17.7 ppg and has put him in the “next” category in terms of guards in the league. His knee injury was a concern for the Sun, but, letting Bledsoe go could have hurt the Suns more in the long term.
Eric was part of the monster class at Kentucky that included John Wall, DeMarcus Counsins and Bledsoe. Although writers like Forde and Thamel must be upset by this announcement today, all of #BBN is jumping for joy for one of their own. Congrats Bledsoe, hard work has paid off, bigtime.
Now, how about a little EBled highlights to celebrate?!
How about Eric going off on IU? ok…
Kige Ramsey was happy when Bledsoe came to UK, as he posted on YouTubeSports
