My JetBlue flight to San Diego today didn’t have WiFi, but it did have DirectTV, so I was able to catch the conference basketball tourney games enroute.
Kentucky wasn’t scheduled until later in the day, so I watched the Virginia/Florida State game. And I was really impressed with Virginia coach Tony Bennett.
Don’t get me wrong — I am a huge fan of UK Coach Calipari. But I can’t remember ever seeing him high five the Cats when they head to the bench for a timeout after a particularly great play. Or even see him smile.
Bennett does it a lot. With his players. With the refs. It makes a difference. I would work harder for that coach.
So, let’s give Cal something to smile about, Cats. It’s March — the best time of the year!
