(ANSA) – NEW YORK, OCTOBER 28 – He leaves the mine and without the possibility of taking a shower rushes to the stadium to watch a basketball match with his son. Michael McGuire’s black, work-dressed face didn’t go unnoticed in the stands of Rupp Arena in Kentucky, and a photo taken by a fan went viral on social media.
According to what McGuire himself said during an interview, there was only 45 time available to arrive in time for the start of the game and for his son Easton to fully enjoy his first experience at the stadium.
“Either I went straight there (to the stadium, ed) – he explained – or I would have lost half of the game to go home, take a shower and change”. He therefore decided not to risk disappointing the little one and kept his dirty overalls on as well as his completely blackened face. The photo was also noticed by the coach John Calipari of the Kentucky University youth basketball team who decided to give the whole family some VIP tickets. (HANDLE).
