Guy who got Kentucky 2014 National Champions tattoo gets free tickets to game

Kentucky-fan-2014-championship-tattoo

Remember that Kentucky fan who got a 2014 National Champions tattoo before the NCAA Tournament began? He’s one win away from looking like Nostradamus.

The No. 8 seed Wildcats have become one of the lowest seeds to ever reach an NCAA men’s basketball national championship game. For about two hours, that honor belonged to No. 7 seed UConn. Tyler probably wasn’t surprised to see Kentucky defy the odds, but I’m sure he never imagined his decision to get a tattoo would lead to free tickets for the biggest game of the year.

Because of the success John Calipari’s team has enjoyed, Tyler’s ink has officially became a national story.

SNL creates ‘Best of the White Guys’ DVD for NCAA Tournament (Video)

Is this SNL’s answer to “One Shining Moment”? If so, they kinda nailed it.

This funny “Best of the White Guys” DVD showing white guys diving after loose balls, taking charges, celebrating on the bench, throwing bounce passes, helping up teammates, checking in at the end of games, and my personal favorite, giving it their best shot.

And those bonus DVDs? Passion over talent? When it was fair? Oh my god. Too much.

Kentucky fan flashes her underwear inside bar

Kentucky-fan-flashes-underwear

Kentucky became the lowest seed to ever reach the national championship game with a win over Wisconsin on Saturday night, and their fans were sure to keep it classy while celebrating. Especially this girl who showed her Wildcat pride by dropping her drawers in a bar.

As you can see, the young lady was wearing Kentucky underwear and wanted the whole establishment to know about it. I’m a UConn alum so you know where my loyalty lies heading into Monday, but this girl has me thinking Kentucky ain’t so bad.

Hey, it’s better than stripping down to your underwear inside the arena during a loss. Yeah, that’s actually been done.

Alex Poythress suffers leg injury in celebration, says he’s fine (Video)

Kentucky is already without Willie Cauley-Stein after the big man got hurt in the team’s Sweet 16 win over Louisville, and now Alex Poythress may not be at full strength for the team’s championship game against UConn Monday night.

Poythress got his leg caught in the dog pile his teammates formed in their celebration after the win over Wisconsin Saturday and appeared to get hurt. However, he told the media that whatever injury it looked like he suffered wasn’t bad.

“Nah, I just caught on the bottom of the dog pile,” Poythress said after the game. “I’ll be fine.”

Poythress may say he’s fine, but the look on his face after the celebration said otherwise:

Poythress now joins a long list of athletes who have been hurt during a celebration. See the full list here.

Drake congratulates Kentucky in locker room, gets grilled by reporter (Video)

Drake Kentucky locker room

If there’s a big sporting event going on, you can bet that rapper Drake will be there. He was there when the Miami Heat won the NBA championship — and was upset when he got shut out of the locker room. And he was on hand in Dallas to celebrate with pal John Calipari after Kentucky beat Wisconsin to reach the NCAA championship game.

The best part was watching him get grilled by Palm Beach Post reporter Matt Porter about his allegiances to Kentucky:

Always? Always.

Drake was also hanging out with buddy Johnny Manziel while at the game:

No new friends.

John Calipari: I know nothing about UConn

John Calipari MemphisJohn Calipari is back in the NCAA championship game after leading his Kentucky Wildcats to an improbable run in the NCAA Tournament.

Freshman Aaron Harrison stepped up for the third straight game and hit a huge 3-pointer in the final minute to help the Wildcats advance, and now they are set to face UConn in the championship game Monday as a 3-point favorite.

In his interview with TBS after the big win, Calipari praised Huskies coach Kevin Ollie and the UConn program while admitting he knew nothing about them.

“I don’t know anything about them,” said Calipari. “The issue now I gotta be up all night watching tape getting ready for them. I know their guards are good and I know I recruited a bunch of their guys, so I know how good they are, but I don’t know how they play.”

Are you buying that from him? If he’s telling the truth, then he really won’t have much time to prepare for the game on Monday night.

We’re guessing some of his assistants have been watching tape on the Huskies and will have him up to speed before long.

Aaron Harrison makes another game-winning 3-pointer (Video)

Aaron Harrison has earned legend status through his play at the NCAA Tournament. The Kentucky freshman made yet another deciding shot for the Wildcats during their tourney run when he hit a game-winning 3-pointer to beat Wisconsin 74-73 on Saturday night in the Final Four. Harrison also drained the game-winning 3-pointer against Michigan to send Kentucky to the Final Four.

And how’s this stat for you? Kentucky made two 3-pointers all night — their first and their last.

Goodness gracious. And can you believe how far away Harrison was on that shot:

Harrison also had a huge 3-pointer to put Kentucky up 70-68 on Louisville and give them the lead for good in that game. What a baller.
