last month Photo of a coal miner and his son at the University of Kentucky’s Blue and White men’s basketball game went viral.
Michael McGuire rushed after a change in work boots and uniform watch the game with a 3-year-old son.
Head coach John Calipari saw the pair and posted a photo of them on Twitter, saying he would give them VIP treatment at an upcoming game.
The McGuires got that treatment Friday night.
Calipari hitched the McGuire family a ride on the team bus to Kentucky’s home game against Duquesne.
Fourteen family members went to the game on Friday.
The treatment didn’t just stop at the trip to Rupp Arena. The family was sitting right behind the Wild’s bench.
Calipari tweeted last month that his family’s “American Dream started in a … coal mine, so this picture hits the spot.”
The Wildcats are the fourth team in the nation in back UNC, Gonzaga and Houston.
