First, this is no knock on former Kentucky basketball coach Joe B. Hall. Second, it’s no knock on the artist who created the new statue of the ex-coach that now sits outside the UK’s palatial Wildcat Coal Lodge. After all, I’m seeing just one angle of the statue.
But when I see this photo…
I’m reminded of Phil Hartman’s brilliant impression of 1992 vice-presidential candidate Admiral James Stockdale. “Who am I, why am I here,” he barked, confused. And from the angle of this photo, it appears that Hall — in the statue — is sitting on the sideline wondering the same thing.
