It's anything but the traditional handshake John. ESPN is covering the event LIVE on ESPNU with Andy Katz being there. There is also going to a follow up special the week after on ESPN for this event. Did Bama have ESPN show their visit? #kentuckyeffect
Cat fans, another banner is up.
Tomorrow the University of Kentucky basketball team will travel to the White House for the traditional handshake-and-howdy with the President as the reigning NCAA basketball champions. But back in Lexington, photographs of UK’s eighth national championship banner are starting to make the rounds.
