Connecticut Governor M. Jodi Rell called Huskies coach Jim Calhoun's earlier argument with a reporter "embarrassing."
I very rarely defend Jim Calhoun, so this should be an interesting post. Mr. 800 was absolutely, positively, 100% right in what he said at that press conference. Could he have handled the situation with a little more tact? Absolutely, but anyone in his position would have been furious to answer such an asinine question at a press conference after a tough day at work.
Ken Krayeske is a hack of a political activist, a "reporter" in the loosest sense of the term. He attended Saturday's game on a photo press pass (you know, for professional photographers, not average guy with a Polaroid) and proceeded to ask the first question.
At a basketball game, talk about basketball. Sure Calhoun is making a whole hell of a lot more money than 99% of Americans in this economic crisis, but it's not your place to confront him on it. He does his job well, gets paid for it, and brings in money for the school. The governor should stand beside him instead of supporting some free lancer with a political beef.
