John Calipari

I don’t really hate you, Coach Cal. After all, you did ruin the Nets for a couple seasons.

Here’s the news that caught my eye today while wishing that anything I bought for $27 in 2007 was now worth $800,000.

(You will always have a special place in my heart, though, Samsung P2.)

  • Down at the University of Kentucky, basketball coach John Calipari “made a slam dunk” (swish?) by paying the spring semester tuition for two students. The scholarship opportunity was available to any student in attendance during the Wildcats’ annual Blue and White scrimmage game. Because that’s what Kentucky students need—an incentive to attend a basketball game. (I mean, besides checking out Ashley Judd, obviously.)
  • Sallie Mae unveiled a new sweepstakes this week. The ”It Pays to Repay” Sweepstakes will give four people up to $10,000 to put toward any private or federal student loans they’ve borrowed with Sallie Mae. To be eligible, entrants must have made six or more on-time loan payments. And while this sweeps has a bit of a “Simpsons Did It” feel to it (yup, thanks to all my references, we’re The Simpsons!), let’s not begrudge anyone looking to help borrowers out—yes, even Sallie Mae.
  • In last week’s burning question, I unveiled some big news to the blogosphere: I’m going to become a father. That may not apply to you, but baby-related news is definitely starting to catch my eye much more. So, dear reader, I’ll say to you what I said to my dear wife, “I’m sorry you have to go on this journey with me.” Today’s stop? Get Rich Slowly, for a list of things that babies just don’t need. (Oof. Designer baby clothes? Shopping cloth covers?? I’ll be in my happy place if you need me …)
