  2. Happy Birthday, Paul!
    I've got the tab the next time you're in Portland to watch the Northwest edition of Shotime.
    In the meantime, just for you, I'm putting the jinx on Rutgers by confidently predicting that they will win their next two games, thereby claiming sole possession of 6th place, since they own the tiebreaker over DePaul and Louisville.

  3. Hi, Big ol'bear

    Hope you are having a good one today and I'll call you later. In
    the D.C. airport and waiting on flight to Miami. You aren't getting
    older, you're getting better. Sissie said she talked to your earlier
    and said you sounded good. For everything you've done, the times you've
    been there and even if it was just a friendly ear and wise counsel I
    will always be grateful and forever in your debt. Can't imagine where I'd
    be today without you and Sonja. Great. I told myself I wouldn't get tears
    when typing this and there they are. TTYL and I love you.

  5. Hi, Paul

    Best wishes on your birthday! Louisville women's sports fans are lucky to have
    someone like you and Sonja who follow Cards athletics with the passion and detail
    that you do. The job is open up here anytime you want to switch teams. Hope to see
    you in Hartford.

    1. Oops, site, not sire!

    2. I guess, in horse racing terms, I would be the sire of CARDINAL COUPLE and Sonja would be the dam. We're out of CARD GAME (Charlie Springer). Owner...the UofL fans. Trainer...our chimps. Jockey...Cletus Pancake.

      Odds: 99-1
