Coal Miner Goes Viral For Putting Wife & Son Before Shower

A picture of a coal miner and his son caught on camera at the University of Kentucky's Blue-White game has gone WAY viral, and that picture really resonated with Coach John Calipari.

He shared the picture of the man still in his work clothes and covered in coal dust on social media and the man was quickly identified as Michael McGuire, who came straight to the game from work in a coal mine to be with his wife and 3-year-old son, Easton.

Coach Cal, who comes from a coal mining family, has since talked to McGuire.

Coach Cal said the response to the photo continues to be overwhelming: hotels and restaurants around Lexington have offered the McGuires a place to stay and eat when they come up for their game of choice.

Coach Cal says there are times when we all have to remember what makes everyday life so important.
