I took the day off yesterday, so there's a lot to catch up on today. First of all, the downtown celebration at 4th Street Live was a lot of fun. Rick Pitino wore a ridiculous-looking shirt, the guys came out and hammed it up a little, free posters were handed out (no offense to the artist, but did he really need to be there to autograph each one? I almost wanted to say, "Umm, no thanks" as he was reaching down with his pen but I didn't want to hurt his feelings). The crowd was really exceptional.
I agree with Charlie Springer at Card Game, however, in thinking why don't they hold these things at the Yum Center? It just makes sense to celebrate Louisville basketball in the home of Louisville basketball, it would accommodate so many more, and would open up a lot more "entertainment possibilities" for theses hour-long events. Instead of just the players grabbing the mic for a bit they could have some contests, games of HORSE, lots of things to really put on a show and make it more of a celebration.
Just a thought for next year, when hopefully we find ourselves in the same situation.
Oh, and since the game was on ESPNU, former Olympian Jennie Finch was on hand, and tweeted out how impressed she was by UofL afterwards. If anyone snapped photos of her from the ballpark, feel free to send my way, I'll be happy to peruse them.
the hot bi-curious one, was pointed towards the Cards for college because "it's the best cheerleading school in the country". So...there's that.
here here and here.
#69 in the lastest Scout rankings and now a consensus four-star player. Rozier, as we mentioned last week, still needs to get his grades and ACT score up before becoming eligible. And with Justice's transfer and Kevin Ware's move to the wing, his academic status suddenly takes on a great importance. Hit those books, Terry.
