Did the Louisville YUM Center retaliate against UK fans booing?

As a sea of Blue swarmed in to the Yum Center last night and Louisville’s Cardinals’ long time rival took ownership of this beautiful new arena, I could sense that the night was going to be a little different. With all the hype surrounding what in effect was no more than a practice match...

Cal Was In Control at Yum

John Calipari is in control. He sensed that he’d get no flack from the 15,000 fans at the Yum! Center last night for sitting his three best players in the second half. Never mind that two of them (Francisco Garcia and Edgar Sosa) were products of U of L, and that the other was...

Quick Storm Leaves Damage in Highlands

Quite a night. The storm pushed through downtown about 6, and the Louisville Bats were playing by 7.

Bad Karma is Pervasive Around Here

Is there some bad karma going around? I’m really sorry about your portfolio, and there’s plenty of doom and gloom in the financial press. But then, I found this headline on MSNBC: “Wall Street Set to Rebound after Biggest Drop in Years.”  So keep your chin up, despite the bad news. Sure, I’ve got...

August 8, 2011

When Jared of CiPit Productions approached me about being Staff Coordinator for the Hello Summer festival, I didn’t hesitate. After all, how could you say no to someone telling you that you’re the perfect person for the job? You can’t. So I jumped right in. What better way to spend a summer day than...
