IMG_9031 If you listened to today's show, you heard not one, but two surprise guests call in. John Calipari and Kaylee Hartung called in to talk about last night's Celebrity Softball Game, which raised over $300,000 for Louisiana flood relief. Hartung, a Louisiana native, was in Baton Rouge to cover the devastation last week for ESPN and said Calipari's fundraising efforts really hit close to home. "It touched my heart. I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, my entire family is there," Kaylee said. "It just means a lot that folks want to help because so much help is needed. It's hard for any photo or video to truly put into perspective what 60,000 homes devastated really means." Kaylee also gave Matt some grief for not only throwing her out, but not inviting her to his birthday party Saturday night. Listen to her call halfway through hour one: John Calipari surprised Matt in the second hour and agreed that the softball game definitely exceeded expectations. "I walked in to my house and my wife knew I didn't want to do it and they talked me into this," Cal said. "When I walked into the door last night, she said, 'You're nuts. That was the funnest time. I enjoyed it the entire time I was there and so did everybody else. I looked around at the crowd and everybody was enjoying watching it and being there." Cal also weighed in on the debate over whether or not Ryan Lemond's hit was fair or foul, saying it was definitely FAIR. "He smashed it!" Cal said. "Ryan, he's like a good little athlete. I was stunned. I looked at him, and I was like, 'why did we invite this guy?' All of a sudden, I see him hit the ball, I was like, 'BAM!'" Check out Calipari's call in hour 2: And for good measure, here's footage of Matt running, which made him the butt of several jokes this morning: (Now is probably a good time to say that I love my job and Matt's a wonderful boss.)
