Remember when Michael Porter played point guard at Kentucky? He was a good player and even better person. I got to know him, his parents and his wife. He walked away from his career when Billy Gillispie left and John Calipari arrived to get on with his life and make it easier for Calipari to pu together the team he wanted. It was a classy move by a classy young man.
That’s why this information he posted on his Facebook page Saturday really is no surprise. He’s that kind of guy and one the Big Blue Nation should always embrace. Check out what he did:
“Today I was able to give my UK tickets away to an extremely amazing lady who has Lou Gehrigs. Her one wish has been to watch a game in Rupp Arena. She’s not able to speak because of it. When I gave her and her son the tickets, I could see she was trying to say thank you to me. She teared up and I just gave her a big hug. I thought I was blessing her but she is the one who blessed me today. God works in amazing ways.”
Does he ever, especially when he has helpers like Michael Porter.
