Let’s Talk Some Football and Festivals with Gabe Duverge and Doris Sims

Are you ready for some football? And are you ready for some of the country’s most spectacular country and rock and roll performers right here in Louisville? You’ll hear all about both on the city’s longest-running and most interesting podcast. First up, Doris Sims makes a return engagement at the REMAX Properties East studios to talk about three September festivals — Hometown Rising, Bourbon and Beyond and Louder Than Life. We talk about how her employer, Danny Wimmer Presents, doubled down on the ‘Ville despite the disastrous weather that forced cancellation of most of two festivals down along the Ohio…

Louisville’s Lamar Jackson Show Continues

LouisvilleKY.com photographer Bill Brymer worked the Louisville Cardinals’ game against North Carolina State. Behind the fantastic Lamar Jackson, #7 U of L blew out the Wolfpack with a 44-0 first half en route to a 54-13 victory at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. As a result of the weekend in college football, the Cards moved up to #5 in both the AP and Coaches polls — thanks to Ohio State’s upset loss to Penn State, and previously unbeaten Texas A & M’s defeat against top-ranked Alabama. Louisville QB Lamar Jackson cemented his favorite status for the Heisman Trophy, passing for 355…

LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK — New Ranking, New Restaurant and Plenty to Do

Most of us really enjoyed the city’s first week in the Top 5 of college football, cranking up the volume on activities as the calendar signaled that autumn is here. I saw the Showtime series, “A Season With Florida State Football” and loved seeing how Jimbo Fisher and his bunch reacted to losing. It was interesting to see the Seminoles go through a practice at Waterfront Park in the pre game and enter into Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, where they were as surprise as fans were that the Cards put a 63-20 pounding on them. I don’t see these guys…

THE WEEK: Scandal in Louisville KY, and Then the Good News

Louisville KY’s Latest Scandal Update: It looks like Olivia Pope and the President will. . . On, not that scandal. Around here, the big news was Tuesday’s all-day Card-bashing fest on ESPN. The network interviewed Katina Powell, who has retained local attorney Larry Wilder, and let Powell expose evidence that she was operating a brothel of sorts at Minardi Hall. ESPN said it had five former players and recruits to corroborate the story, and a money trail directly from Andre McGee to Powell. My TAKE: Believe me, everyone has an opinion. Mine is that the school won’t soon recover in…

Monday Morning’s Culture Review of the Weekend

Well, that was fun. I was fortunate to attend three great events over the weekend, experiencing a variety of culture it would be hard to match anywhere else. CLASSICAL MOMENTS: Let’s start the Corkestra event at Norton Commons on Sunday. I had no idea there was such a gorgeous amphitheater there, and since Paula is such a great fan of the Orchestra, she insisted we go. After the initial disappointment of learning that Teddy Abrams wasn’t there, we were thoroughly entertained by Conductor Bob Bernhardt and the talented group on stage. The Orchestra breezed through a two-hour set under sunny skies,…

Petrino’s Cards Picked to Finish Behind Clemson, Florida State in Media Poll

from GoCards.com LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville football team was picked to finish third in the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Atlantic Division, according to a poll of 158 media members in attendance at the 2015 ACC Football Kickoff at Pinehurst Resort in Greensboro, N.C. Clemson, the preseason favorite to claim the ACC football championship, was also picked over three-time defending ACC champion Florida State to capture the Atlantic Division, while Georgia Tech was favored to repeat as the Coastal Division winner. The Cardinals, who earned one first-place vote, finished with a 9-4 overall record in their inaugural season in the…


Day 16: Observations from the Upper Deck, Thoughts on Sleep

LUKE: Today I had to wake up at 5:30 instead of my usual 7 to retake a physics test. Now I bet you expect me to say it was awful, the worst thing ever.  Actually it was just as bad as waking up at 7. This goes into my ideas of sleep in general. My normal type of sleep schedule is stay up late, wake up late (similar to my Mom and brothers but opposite to Dad), though I’m different in that I wish I could wake up early even when I stay up late. This is because I like…

Day 5: Saturday in the Ballpark

Our seats at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium are on the 50-yard line, way up in the UPS Flight Deck. If you like the nuances of the game, the Xs and Os,  seeing pass patterns as they develop, they’re great seats. There’s also a wonderful vista, with a view of the city from Iroquois Park to downtown’s office buildings. Churchill Downs’ twin spires and the still developing U of L academic campus are close. Our group has a dozen or more seats together. My son Josh joined Paula and I yesterday as the Cardinals took care of business against N.C. State….


The Zoo Ranks 12th, and We’re Inside 100 Days to Kickoff

Don’t miss my conversation with Louisville Zoo Director John Walczak on the Rusty Satellite Show (also featuring graphic facilitator Kat Gentner). While I was at the Zoo Tuesday, I took this photo of John in front of an animatronic bug. We also discussed, outside the interview, how the Zoo overcame the bad public relations from the 2009 train derailment. Walczak explained the thorough safety precautions now in place. Originally we had planned to do the interview to promote the Zoo’s participating in a USA Today contest in which online voters selected the best Zoo in the country. The results just came…
