Larry on Twitter



It’s really too bad that Kentucky coach John Calipari doesn’t let his daughter, Erin Calipari, talk to the media more because she’s not a bit afraid to voice her opinions and often does it in a humorous, biting way that is very, very entertaining.

On Twitter (@TheErinCalipari), she constantly treats followers to bits of wisdom as well as inside information — like the time she chatted about her father making her make free throws as a youngster.

Recently she caused a bit of a buzz by having a little fun over the tattoo Louisville coach Rick Pitino got. She tweeted, “From now on when my dad does something embarrassing I will just say to myself “at least he doesn’t have a giant back tattoo”

My response was that her mother was probably saying the same thing — I know my wife still does over the three small tattoos that I have.

Several national media members picked up on her tweet as a sign of what the Kentucky-Louisville rivalry is all about. Myself, I just thought it was Erin being Erin and having a little fun that we should all enjoy.

    Let it rip Erin. I like it. You have a great Dad. BBN has a great Coach. These are good days for UK.

  • Jerry says:

    I subcribe to Erin as a card carrying life member of the BBN. Whats funny is y a non BBN would subscripe to her account. I dont know any other coaches kids account to subcribe to an dont care to. All LITTLE brother fans do is show their BIg blue Envy and and their Fly by Nite fan attitude when they comment an post on every comment an BBN member says or writes. Get a real life Card fans and stay out of ours!

      Maybe we should start a campaign to let Erin Calipari at least write a guest post for What do you think

  • Mike says:

    Erin Calipari rocks….she should be able to be a guest writer.

  • LindaS says:

    I think it would be a great idea to have Erin as a guest writer, more then once! I’ve been thinking of something but haven’t gotten it together yet. Too excited about retiring at the end of May. I might come see ya Larry at your office! I miss you and Gary!

  • JPL says:

    If you ever heard her on KSR you know she’d be great.

  • Theresa says:

    Absolutely! I think that is a fantastic idea. What can the BBN do to help get this started, Larry?

  • ukcrazycat says:

    Sounds good to me Larry.

  • Karen Sprinkle says:

    I think this is a great idea. She’s smart and articulate, and has a witty edge to her writing (even when limited to 140 characters).
