John Calipari nominated for an Emmy
It appears that Kentucky head coach John Calipari has been nominated for a Regional Emmy Award for his involvement in the "Hoops for Haiti" benefit that he helped put together. The benefit raised over 1.3 million dollars from donations from Kentucky fans, ex Kentucky coaches, and others.
Sure it's just a "regional" Emmy, but still an Emmy, and imagine the outcry from rival fans and media (UofL, Forde, Thaymel) if he would happen to win the award.
But in all seriousness, Congrats to Coach Cal and all those involved for raising that amount of money for the people of Haiti in their time of need. It's something that in my mind never got the national recognition that it deserved.
