Apparently Coach Calipari, the new head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats (for how long? probably a couple years until the dark cloud catches up to him now, where he’ll promptly uproot, and move on, leaving his former employer to bear the brunt of his misgivings), hates the color orange.
What is the root of all this hatred? Is it because he genuinely dislikes Tennessee and Bruce Pearl? Or is it something deeper? Did he lose his dad to a carrot truck overturning on the freeway? Was he was molested by an orange? Or a man waring an Orange suit? Is it because he used to be an aspiring songwriter, but realized that nothing rhymes with orange? Is it because he loved the entertaining and fun for the entire family board game Trivial Pursuit, but was always stymied by the Sports and Leisure pie piece?
We may never know.
What we do know however, is that Cal was kind of a douche at Memphis, and it seems his new position at Kentucky has only helped nurture that douchbaggery into a new level of douchy douchness. Either that, or Bruce Pearl is under his skin. Whatever the reason, he hates orange.
What are some other reasons he might hate it? Give us your best.
