Caligiuri on The Real Story

Caligiuri sounds like he’s close to running. …Did he just invoke Barack Obama? Like maybe three or four times? That’s sort of an odd tactic.

Also in this edition, Ken Krayeske on Jim Calhoun.

UPDATE: Caligiuri will also be on Face the State this Sunday on WFSB. Also appearing on that show will be prospective gubernatorial candidates Sen. Gary LeBeau and Scott Merrell. Merrell was an independent candidate in 2006.

    Wow, Kenny gets an A+!

    That was a heck of a media appearance. KK often rubs me the wrong way, buy I’m impressed that he can go on air and be so cool, calm, and collected.

  2. How could Shelly Sindland sit there while Krayeske made out with himself like that?

    I’ll give him credit on one thing. It was like a whole four minutes before he mentioned his Inaugural arrest.

  3. Why won’t this story go away?!?!?! This may last longer than the g.d. chimp story! We are officially in day 6! Oh, and now we have state legislators getting involved. Is Congress next? Will we see freelance reporter barred from interstate transport? Or coaches (that will sure make the tournament interesting)?

    Seriously, people you realize our banks are on the brink of failure, right?

  4. I watched the Caligiuri interview. I don’t think the State Senator is going to have much luck being more pro-Obama than Dodd. That sounds like a sure fire losing strategy for a Republican.

    That was absurd. Ken’s whole philosophy is that his Mom taught him not to say “shut up,” therefore, an abrasive grown man can’t tell a headline-hunting grown man to “shut up” when he so desperately needs to hear it.

    Ken, this was not a teacher-student exchange, this was not a dean-faculty exchange, and this definitely wasn’t a mother-son exchange. It was someone asking a personal question unrelated to basketball at a time when the press conference was limited to questions about a basketball game. Period. Calhoun apologized when he blew up at Dave Solomon in 2004 for asking a basketball question he didn’t want to hear at the time. Calhoun should not apologize to Ken for responding to a non-basketball question in the same manner way.

    The big question for Ken is, when Calhoun offered to discuss that outside, why didn’t you take him up on the offer? The answer is probably that no cameras would have been rolling, and you wouldn’t find your face on Sherry Sindland, ESPN, NECN, and the other networks that have spent far too much time covering your agenda.

    By the way, how does Calhoun’s Comcast contract relate to the State budget crisis?

    Sedatives?

    Amen!

  8. Really bad tie, Ken.

  9. Hey Don!

    I love that tie! My sister gave it to me, brought all the way back from Southeast Asia.

    What do you prefer – solids or stripes? Next time I’m on the boob tube, I’ll consider your taste in men’s wear if it will help me convince you of my position.

    Peace,
    KK

  10. Really bad tie, Ken.

    Yes, plus no one has worn a brown suit since Reagan left office.

  11. Ken,

    It’s gotta go. Burn it, with apologies to your sister. If you’re gonna be a celeb, you gotta look the part. Stripes were OK about five years ago. But if you look around now at political fashion mavens like Obama and his beautiful wife, you’ll see lots of what are called blue neats (small pattern ties that hearken back to the good old depression years of FDR.

    Reds are power ties; you want to wear them when bearding lions like Calhon. Blues are soft; think velvet fist. Perfect for the Shelly Sindland show.

    However – very important warning – you have to be concerned what fashion wardrobers call “shimmer.” It’s what a tie does when exposed to the camera. You don’t want your tie to shimmer –ever.

    As to opinions, I’m not sure what yours are, but if they correspond to those of Tom Jefferson and Sam Adams, I’m on your ship.

    I wish you the best of luck, but think that everyone in the state should pull your chain at least once, so that you can demand an apology and we can get the recriminations over with, henmse my rather moild criticism of your apparel.

    There really are more important things – you know, like ties. Clothes make the man, no?

  12. Ken,

    We don’t want the Kereske/Calhoun contretemps to degenerate into this:

    The art advisor to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad urged a visiting Hollywood delegation to apologise for “insults and slanders” about Iranians in films, the ISNA news agency reported on Saturday.

    “(Iranian) cinema officials will only have the right to have official sessions with… Hollywood movie makers when they apologise to the Iranians for their 30 years of insults and slanders,” Javad Shamaghdari said.

    “The Iranian people and our revolution has been repeatedly unjustly attacked by Hollywood,” he said, citing ‘300’ and recent Oscar nominated movie ‘The Wrestler’ as among offending films.

    In 2007, the war epic ‘300’, a smash hit in the United States for its gory portrayal of the Greco-Persian wars, drew the wrath of Iranians for showing their ancestors as bloodthirsty.

    Similarly ‘The Wrestler’, was booed in Iran and heavily criticised for the scene of breaking and tearing of the Iranian flag by the picture’s star, 2009 Oscar nominee Mickey Rourke.

    “We will believe (US President Barack) Obama’s policy of change when we see change in Hollywood too, and if Hollywood wants to correct its behaviour towards Iranian people and Islamic culture then they have to officially apologise,” Shamaghdari added.

  13. Idiot……Jim Calhoun is paid to coach basketball. he is one of the two or 3 best in the nation. The program was nothing before he was hired and turned it into one of the nations best. His salary has nothing to do with the state economy. The man was hired to win basketball games and make the University money. he has exceeded all expecations on both front. Ken Krybaby shoudl shut up and go away….he is a hack.
