The end result was quite lame, but any time something involves Jim Calhoun and BIG EAST conference calls, it should at least be pointed out.
During the first Big East call of the season on Thursday, a caller who identified himself as Mike Marot of The Associated Press (who is a real person), asked UConn coach Jim Calhoun this gem.
“Talk about the Kidd Chris Show. Do you guys have guns in the locker room anymore? I don’t know what that problem is. Was that any of your problems, or was that just Kidd Chris Show.”
“I’m sorry,” a baffled Calhoun responded.
“Uh, you heard me, coach. Just go ahead and answer it,” the caller said. “Coach, it’s the Kidd Chris Show out of Portland, Ore.”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” Calhoun said.
Like I said, pretty unfunny. It doesn’t even get Calhoun to go into one of his rants! You sir, are an Epic FAIL.
