Louisville Women's Basketball...A bit of fun for Thursday Cardinal Couple



WE'RE PUTTING THE WORLDWIDE QUIZ ON THE SITE INSTEAD OF RADIO THIS WEEK.


Due to circumstances that involve me, Worldwide and Sam the Intern this week...we won't be doing the weekly CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR this Saturday on WCHQ 100.9 FM nor streaming live on the Internet at www.crescenthillradio.com

I'll be out-of-town, so will Sam and Worldwide is involved in some kind of geeky-tech stuff update at his work that is taking up his Saturday and Sunday. We're pretty sure it involves the majority of his 20 electrical devices...


SONJA HAS NEVER BEAT WORLDWIDE IN THE QUIZ
One of the fun segments of our weekly show is presenting the "Worldwide Quiz" to him and the listeners. So, I decided to put it on the site this week and see how our readers who may not hear the radio show do on it. 

(Cue pre-Quiz music...if you want to hear it...the link is below):

  1. Missed two, got the bonus for a score of 90%. Besides the ones I missed i had to guess on two others.

  2. Had a 90 until the bonus. 80 still keeps me eligible for the semester.

  3. Good work guys. If anyone has had trouble leaving a comment under the "anonymous" selection, please let me know via e-mail. Some readers have reported this difficulty and I'm trying to figure out why.

    Thanks.

  4. I got 'em all plus the bonus, Paulie, but only because it was all basketball! If you would have thrown in any other sport, I would have missed it. I still keep very close tabs on my favorite basketball team, but unfortunately, limited time has left me with big gaps about the other women's sports.

    1. That's still a passing grade, K. Way to keep your eligibility alive!

  7. Plus, we are still waiting on Worldwide to take this quiz. He might be buying a bunch of bagels. Heck, I wrote the quiz and only got a 80.

  8. I scored an 80. I missed 4.7,9 but got the bonus because i met Jim Kelch once when he was in Lexington to call the UofL v UK WBB game. A great guy.

  10. I got a 100. I missed #5. I knew about Mariya and Arica, but didn't go through the whole roster in my head. Thought I probably missed one. Ah well.

    Took the quiz a while ago, but have been having trouble posting a comment (not anonymously, from my account).

  11. I expect you to use all your IT prowess and figure out this dilemma then, Jeff. I think no fewer than 10 of your electrical devices to be employed to figure out this wrench in the site.

    It is so ordained on this 3rd day of September in the 2015th year A.D.by Paulie.

    Make it so, #2.

    1. Good effort, Nick O. I can't help myself but I absolutely love the "Look Sharp, Be Sharp" pre-quiz song by the Boston Pops Orchestra. Maybe it's because I dig old time radio/music so much...but I would love it if the UofL Marching Band would learn this and play it at games.
