John Calipari’s daughter takes shot at Louisville fans over cartoon (Picture)
Rooting for injuries is never a classy thing to do, but it’s safe to say there are very few Louisville fans who are weeping over the fact that Kentucky has lost freshman Nerlens Noel for the remainder of the season.
Noel, who was averaging over 10 points and nearly 10 rebounds per game, suffered a season-ending knee injury during a loss to Florida on Feb. 12. The Wildcats are now in danger of missing the NCAA tournament, which a cartoon in the Courier Journal reminded everyone of on Wednesday. Via The Cardinal Connect:
Erin Calipari, the 26-year-old daughter of Kentucky coach John Calipari, was apparently offended by the drawing. She decided to come up with a cartoon of her own after seeing it, which she posted on Twitter:
Just in case anyone didn’t get the entire joke, Erin clarified in a later tweet that the jersey she drew is No. 0 because the Cardinals can’t count past two. I must admit, Calipari’s response was pretty clever. Comments like this from Erin’s dad have shown us that there is no love lost between these two in-state rivals, which apparently applies to the offspring of the coaches as well.
