Snider Out for Cards for 2-3 Weeks

from the University of Louisville: University of Louisville junior guard Quentin Snider will be sidelined for 2-3 weeks with a strained hip flexor suffered in the second half of the Cardinals’ victory over Duke last Saturday.

LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: No Scandal Here, Right?

If the national media is reporting on the University of Louisville sports world, it couldn’t be accurate without using the words “shooting” “sex” “scandal” “cheating” “investigation” and “money”. The positive news about Lamar Jackson winning the Heisman Trophy enjoyed a brief moment in the spotlight, very brief, before a shooting involving football players and a revelation about cheating, plus the A.D. waging a war of words over money with city officials, returned to the front page. I’m trying to figure out how two U of L football players, and a cheerleader, got themselves shot at a party at an off-campus apartment,…

LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: Catching the Christmas Spirit Out on the Town

  ‘Tis the season for holiday parties, right? I’ve mentioned a few over at EatDrinkTalk, but it’s only scratching the surface. As Caroline Knop mentioned when she was guest c0-hosting the Rusty Satellite Show this week, this weekend provides a rare opportunity to get discounted tickets to the Feb. 18 Tailspin Ale Fest, arguably the most popular of the city’s beer-inspired gatherings. You can get the tix Friday and Saturday at Liquor Barns in Middletown and Elizabethown. In my world, Paula has already completed her Christmas shopping, she says, while I’ve yet to buy the first present. But yesterday I…

LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: This is Not Going Well

As President-Elect, Donald Trump is today taking credit for something that was never going to happen — he tweeted that he was responsible for Ford not moving a plant from Kentucky to Mexico. He’s picked a known bigot as one of his top advisors. People around the country continue to hold protests. This isn’t going well, and it’s just getting started. So we must look outside politics for good news — I played golf at Seneca in 70 degree weather on Nov. 17. It’s almost Thanksgiving. Maybe a move to Thailand is in order. According to this video from my…
