Buying tailgating supplies for a football scrimmage in April. Make no mistake, this is the greatest country in the world.
I'm actually getting a little nervous for the Spring Game. Not because of anything on the field, obviously, but for the number of people that will be in the stands. Charlie Strong set a goal of 20,000 and honestly I have no idea if that's realistic. I hope it is. I have no idea what to expect.
In the past there always seemed to be built-in excuses for less than stellar attendance. Bad weather, inconvenient timing, and, of course, the Kragpocalypse could reasonably be cited. That's not the case this year.
The weather will be gorgeous, admission free, the gates will be opening early and staying that way late, and there will be a team on display with as much potential as any we've seen for the better part of a decade.
Most importantly, perhaps, our coach has made it known how important it is to him and the team to see that kind of support in the stands. All coaches, of course, want games and scrimmages to be attended by as many as possible. But this year feels different, it feels almost like a test.
For better or worse, the kerfuffle with the media earlier this week adds to this feeling, and pushes the question that haunts the back of our minds to the forefront. If Charlie Strong continues to win at Louisville, would he stay?
We won't get that answer tomorrow, but we will begin to see the backdrop against which that decision will be made down the line.
And if drinking beer at 9:00am and throwing cornhole for four hours is what it takes, well by god, I'm reporting for duty.
Be there, it's as simple as that. Go Cards.
