While Skal Labissiere has said goodbye to Kentucky basketball, he hasn't said goodbye to Kentucky in general, and while he is finishing up classes for the semester in Lexington has set up a few autograph sessions across the state to help make a little cash (because he is no longer an “amateur athlete” it isn't illegal for Labissiere to take part in the signings).
Skal had signings on both Saturday and Monday, but his most eventful one undoubtedly came Monday night at the Simpsonville Outlet Mall, in Simpsonville, Kentucky, where a fan just came out and laid a big wet kiss on the cheek of the 20-year-old Haitian import.
