Touching photo of coal miner taking son to basketball game goes viral, and now the coach is getting involved
Here's a touching palate cleanser to end the day. The Kentucky Wildcats hosted their annual "blue-white scrimmage" when a father and son caught the eye of Coach John Calipari. The father, a coal miner, sat there with his face still covered in coal dust while his son looked excited to be at the game and with his dad.
Coach Calipari snapped a photo and tweeted "My family’s American dream started in a Clarksburg, WV coal mine, so this picture hits home. From what I’ve been told, after his shift, he raced to be with his son & watch our team."

From what I’ve been told, after his shift, he raced to be with his son & watch our team. Don’t know who this is, but I have tickets for him & his family at Rupp to be treated as VIPs!! pic.twitter.com/a5BJXUnK2v

I'll admit to knowing nothing about West Virginia, other than it is funny to see an electric vehicle break down outside of a coal mine, and that Joe Manchin is a f*cking sell-out. Aaron Ryon from Whiskey Riff (where I'm biting this off of) is from the Mountain State and says "seeing dads, grandpas or uncles coming home from work in the evening covered in coal was just a way of life."
The sight of the dad, probably exhausted and fresh off of his shift, sitting there with his son moved Coach Calipari to want to get them VIP tickets to a future game. Some days Twitter doesn't suck. A user responded with a comment the man's wife Mollie McGuire posted on Facebook. She was at the game with them.
My amazing husband started his day at 4:45 am that morning and worked all day. Then drove straight to the arena to meet us and enjoy the game with our son! We are truly blessed with such an amazing man, and beyond thankful! We love our coal miner.
Coach Calipari is going to make sure Michael, Mollie, and their son get the full VIP treatment at a future game soon. One single touching moment captured on the bird app shows us the importance of family, of fathers and sons, and that in the words of one of the greatest poets of this generation Adam Lazzara, "These are the days. Always remember."
I hope it motivates more of us to log off of that same bird app once and a while and take our own sons (and daughters) to a game.
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
