Jay-Z Invades Kentucky Locker Room, Celebrates Wildcats' Elite Eight Win Over Tar Heels A Final Four-clinching win and a visit by the biggest name in hip-hop?

Sounds like a fun little Sunday.

After Kentucky's win over North Carolina in the Elite Eight, rap star Jay-Z paid the team a visit.

"That in itself was a pretty nice experience to add on to [the Final Four]," guard Darius Miller told The Louisville Courier-Journal. "Going to the Final Four [is bigger] by far. But still, Jay-Z. It's crazy. This whole day has been crazy. I'm still taking it all in."

During last year's NCAA tournament, rapper Drake would hit up the Kentucky locker room after victories, and he later invited the Wildcats on stage during an offseason show in Lexington.

Comment of the day

Bostonians have a great sense of humor, but is this a little over the line? It's tough to crack a smile when that clown's name is mentioned.

"Hey, enough about Savard. What about poor Matt Cooke having to sit out as many as 14 games. Tragic!"

Here ya go, cheeko18, but I'm posting this shout-out with mixed emotions. Truth be told, I'm not the biggest fan of your little homage to the FoxTrax glow puck. Also, I have a couple of questions regarding the choice of floral arrangements: Were you a Vladimir "Rosie" Ruzicka fan? And is there room for a Stanley Cup anywhere on that calf of yours?

Impressive, but can they get to happy hour in time through the potholed, narrow, cyclist-packed streets of Boston during rush hour?
