Beauty and the beast: No Part III?

I have it on good authority that ESPN has already Pdecided not to have sideline reporter Jeannine Edwards interview Kentucky Coach Billy Gillispie at hafltime of the Vanderbilt game Tuesday night.

We’ll find out at halftime if that’s true. ESPN usually decides late in the first half which coach to speak to as the teams leave the floor for intermission.

Gillispie and Edwards have had two puzzling exchanges earlier this season. At Ole Miss, Gillispie scolded her for asking a “bad question” when she inquired about adjustments after a scoreless first half for Jodie Meeks.

When UK played Florida, Gillispie seemed to have trouble hearing or understanding Edwards’ questions.

If Gillispie’s intention was to discourage ESPN from approaching him at halftime, it may have worked.

Edwards is wearing knee-high black boots, so if Gillispie gets out of hand, perhaps she’ll be ready with a swift kick.

Stay tuned.

Of all the things I find wrong with ESPN and their bringing basketball games the halftime report is the donkeys behind, of course they git the girls a few shots on the air.
Of course you never know what is going on because the talking heads never shut up talking about other things not the game you are watching, ie D. V. now every one else hopes to match him. WHY WHY
