Go Cards!

It’s a happy but bleary day here in Louisville as a result of the Cardinals clinching the NCAA basketball championship last night. But it ain’t over yet! Amazingly, U of L’s women’s team is also in the NCAA finals and that game is tonight. Talk about a rare treat – two nights and two national championships! But how much beer can a man drink?

  1. Congrats to your city, Joe! And a new Cabela’s coming to town also?? Moving into the big leagues, I’d say. You folks must be trying to take away our thunder down here in Nashville as the current “it” city of the South. Looks like a road trip is on my radar.

    1. Ha! Hey Linda!

      I’ve been a committed Bass Pro Shop customer (there’s one right across the river), but I’ll check it out! 😉

      And yes, the old town is growing. It ain’t Chicago, but that’s a good thing. The big new stadium has people looking at the city in a new way I think. Supposedly we’re shopping for a pro basketball team, but based on the (consistent) performance of U of L it doesn’t seem like we need one. It reminds me of the time I lived in Minneapolis. People there loved high school hockey so much the pro team couldn’t get an audience. They ended up moving to Texas!

      We’ll never compete with Nashville culturally, that’s for sure. But it’s worth the trip. Mrs. Pastry and I would love to show you around!

  2. My entire family are all Cards fans although not a one of them went to the University of Louisville. Go figure. But all of us in Kentucky are proud and happy for the team (except for a few UK fanatics).

    1. UK fans are like that, aren’t they? It’s odd for me to root for U of L since they were the bane of DePaul, my favorite Chicago team, when I was a kid.

      The poor lady Cards, they were just out-gunned last night. I can’t remember any team dropping as many 3’s as UConn did last night, and I used to go to Bull’s games back home. That 6’4″ forward they have was simply devastating. But oh well…#2 ain’t half bad!
