For the millionth time, my apologies for the slight delay in keeping the “world famous,” top blog in all of minor league baseball updated.
As expected, the hustle and bustle of getting everything ready for Opening Day is upon us and I tell ya what…my head along with the rest of the Legends front office is definitely starting to spin like crazy. But, it’s all normal and comes with working within the entertainment industry, and more specifically, minor league baseball.
For those that, might have been playing around on the Legends homepage…(www.lexingtonlegends.com), you might have noticed the Legends congratulating the new coach of the UK mens basketball team, John Calipari. The day, that “Coach Cal” was introduced as the new head man of Big Blue Nation, myself along with two interns dressed as baseball players made our way to the Joe Craft Center and huddled with the Big Blue faithful and waited on the new ball coach to leave his press conference. Well, luckily he did indeed come out and I presented him with an official Legends baseball hat, which you can see below.
It was a great experience, obviously, and to see the complete “un-inerrupted” showdown of Coach Calipari and yours truly, good ole SuperMario, check out the video on our LegendsNation youtube account, listed here: http://www.youtube.com/user/LegendsNation
Maybe just maybe, you faithful fans, we might get to see the ole coach walking around Applebee’s Park sometime during the season……
