Ware’s The Scholly, The Vest Divestiture & Summer’s Heat

Take that Brandon Bender. U of L’s Cardinals have fought back to a draw with former part time b-baller Brandon Bender. By all accounts the woefully underachieving former Ballard Bruin steered Seneca QB DaMarcus Smith to Central Florida. Apparently, much to Smith’s chagrin, after he learned that Bender was just woofin’, and that CF’s star […]

U of L’s Biggest Rivalry May Be Renewed

Thanks to loyal reader cbcard, who is obviously more diligent and obsessive in his research than your intrepid sports blogger, this bit of info. According to the Memphis paper, the Cards and Memphis State are on the verge of signing a contract for a home and home men’s basketball series. With all due respect to […]

Winner Wins Spoils: Bellarmine’s YouTube Moment

Well, we can talk all the Cardinal/ Wildcat trash we want, but there’s only school ’round here that toted home a trophy. That’s right, Scotty Davenport’s NCAA Champion Bellarmine Knights. To the victors, go bragging rights. And, how do we celebrate such accomplishments these days? With a You Tube video, of course. – Seedy K

Hoops Time: Playing for Pay Playoff Observations

There’s something about LeBron James that simply doesn’t feel right. It may be the stupid way he wears that headband. (Somebody send him a photo of Slick Watts, will ya?) But I think it’s more than that. I simply can’t put my finger on it. He’s a way better than average shooter. He’s strong. He […]

Kragthorpe Fraud Keeps On Giving

U of L football fans owe another big thank you to former Cardinal football coach, the charlatan who passed himself as a martinet, Steve Kragthorpe. Here’s a release from the school, advising of lost scholarships, resulting from academic deficiencies during the Kragthorpe Era. Cards Allowed Fewer Initial Football Scholarships This Year LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The […]

My Harmon Killebrew Moment

I don’t have a lot of baseball stories, so I try to space out over time the few I do have, not retelling them too very often. Since one of the players in this memory is Harmon Killebrew, I get to tell of this moment again. The surprisingly diminutive, but powerful slugger passed away today […]

Coach Cal vs. The Rick: The Smackdown Continues

John Calipari has announced he’s going to coach the Dominican Republic’s basketball team this summer. Would he have made such a move, had his not so friendly adversary from down the road — that would be Rick Pitino in case you’ve been asleep the last few years — not announced he was going to coach […]

The Shoni Schimmel Flick, “Off The Rez”: Interesting, But Disappointing

I’ll say this for TLC. The network sure does know how to jam a lot of commercials in its programming. Tuned in on Saturday night for my first look at the “heralded” documentary about Louisville Women’s b-ball hoop star Shoni Schimmel. And, actually was able to see the film, though it took work and patience, […]

Derby So Yesterday, Looking Ahead to Hoops

Now that your obsession with Derby, and my obsession with JazzFest, are done for the year, let’s look ahead to what really matters. Stanley Cup? Well, for a few us here, but not many. MLB? Check with Rick Bozich on that. He’s locked in, even though his ChiSox suck. College Football? Sure, Charlie Strong has […]

I’m Baaaaaaaack, And Ready To Shake ‘Em On Down

Back from New Orleans, from which locale I did not report on the PGA tourney there during the first weekend of JazzFest. You could care less. I could care less. Though, since many of the golfers stayed at the same hotel where I was, I can confirm this: Their wives were all attractive. And most […]
