A coal miner, covered in coal dust, took his son to his first University of Kentucky Wildcats basketball game. Twenty-nine-year-old Michael McGuire works 10 hours a day, six days a week. He did not have enough time to take a shower and still get to the game to meet his wife and 3-year-old son, Easton. Wildcats coach, John Calipari, was so struck by the photo that he posted it online, where it went viral. Coach Calipari told the McGuire family he wants them to be his VIP guests at an upcoming home game.
