So looks like the official release of Derek's own brand of bottled water, appropriately named VICTORY, will be on Saturday, June 23rd at the Lexington Convention Center. Tickets are $100 each, and proceeds go to support the Derek Anderson Foundation. Former players from 1978, 1996, 1998, & 2012 will be in attendance for the party. Also at the party, you will have the chance to bid on some items such as, a Derek Anderson Miami Heat jersey, and some autographed pictures. Again, proceeds from the auction go to Derek's foundation.

Go to to purchase your tickets, and help Derek with his wonderful foundation.

Kentucky's White House visit to be on ESPNU

Wishing you could join the Wildcats on their visit to the White House? Well now you can, sort of. Andy Katz will be with the team at the White House, and ESPNU will be showing it live starting at 5pm this Friday on a special called "Sports CenterU Special: Kentucky at the White House".

The network will also be showing a half hour behind the scenes special called "All-Access: Kentucky at the White House" on May 11th at 11:30pm

Set the DVR this is must see TV for a Kentucky fan.

Derek Anderson releasing his own brand of water

Former Wildcat great, and NBA Champion Derek Anderson is releasing his own brand of bottled water. VICTORY H2O as it's called, will be released in Kentucky May 4-6. I'm in the process of finding out where it will be sold. But in the mean time, if your out and see a bottle, grab it, and drink it. It's the water you need "When Every Drop Counts!".

Calipari adds to "The Wall"

The day John Calipari was introduced as the head coach of Kentucky Basketball, he made a statement that soon came true. While setting in front of the mic, he said "they only hang banners in here for championships" while pointing to the wall of the Joe Craft Center. He continued, "we want to add to that wall". Three short years later, he has done exactly that with the addition of the 2012 National Championship banner to "The Wall" of the Craft Center.

Anthony Davis to be on Olympic team?

There has been rumors that because of injuries, Anthony Davis could be added to the USA Olympic team. Well, it looks like those rumors may have some legs.

Sports Illustrated is reporting that it has already happened:

In the wake of serious injuries that have decimated Team USA's roster of Olympic finalists, sources said Kentucky big man and projected No. 1 pick Anthony Davis has been selected as a replacement candidate to compete in the London Games this summer.

Of course this just means that Davis will be added to the roster for tryouts. The final roster will be trimmed to 12 sometime in June. Just being considered despite having not played a single NBA game is impressive to say the least. I know BBN would love to see Davis representing the United States in the Olympic games this summer. Let's hope this story is true.
