The Best of 2013


As 2013 comes to a close tonight, I look back at some of my best work from this past season from being able to cover the Kentucky Wildcats. One of the things I’ve enjoyed the most is being able to interview former basketball and baseball players that have played at Kentucky.


January:
Kentucky basketball great Jamal Mashburn

February:
Minnesota Twins pitching prospect Alex Meyer. Meyer had been acquired during the offseason in a trade with the Washington Nationals.

April:
Los Angeles Angels pitcher Joe Blanton

June:
Miami Marlins draft pick J.T. Riddle
Oakland Athletics draft pick Jerad Grundy

October:
Boston Red Sox draft pick Corey Littrell

November:
I interviewed retired Kentucky basketball coach Joe B. Hall the day after the Cats took on the Michigan State Spartans.

December:
Phoenix Suns guard Archie Goodwin

So to put it simply, it’s been a great year to cover the Cats with regards to the notable ex-Cats that I’ve been able to interview over the past calendar year. I look forward to speaking with other former Cats over the next year to come.

In a few days, I’ll post my New Year’s Resolutions for the Kentucky Wildcats for what I would like to see happen in 2014.
