"Went to Best Wings in Huntsville. This place rivals Ching's Wings. If you've been to Ching's, you know that's good.  I went with the honey gold and the Cajun spicy ranch."
The first thing I wondered: how do you eat wings with a suit-coat on?  That sounds awfully messy. The second thing I wondered: what's he doing back in Huntsville?  It's much easier to answer that question. [caption id="attachment_207485" align="alignnone" width="412"]@80baby16 @80baby16[/caption] Coach Cal shared some wings with swingman John Petty.  Calipari was in Huntsville just ten days ago to see Petty for an in-home visit at the beginning of the open recruiting period.  Calipari is turning Huntsville, Alabama into a home-away-from-home as he tries to convince Petty to turn down his home state school for the Cats. If you don't know much about Petty yet, the first player Cal offered in the '17 class, here's the basics:
