Coach Calipari told President Obama that when the University of Kentucky Basketball team won the 2012 National Championship they were jumping up and down “not saying, ‘We did it! We won!’ They were saying, ‘We’re going to the White House! We’re going to the White House!’ because they wanted to meet [President Obama].” That marks a change from when athletes used to say, “We’re going to Disney World!” I love the shift–especially since it’s my team making it!!!!! Congratulations once again to the UK Wildcats and to all of the fiercely loyal fans of the Big Blue Nation.
