What a weekend ahead! -- THURSDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
NEXT 4 DAYS FULL OF CARDINAL EVENTS
In addition to Labor Day weekend arriving, get ready for a plethora of UofL sporting events on campus and in the city!
Here's a quick guide:
UofL Football kicks off the 2016 season with a game at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium when the Charlotte 49's come to town for a 7 p.m. kickoff. Ah, the tailgating, Card March, action under the bright lights and what appears to be a guaranteed big win for Petrino's pigskin players against the North Carolina visitors who went 2-10 last season.
We'll be excited to see Lamar Jackson at QB and the many receivers and backs he'll distribute the ball to. And, if you see a large group of women's walking around in red, it just might be one of the UofL women's sports teams out showing their support. If you see a fool dancing in the Crunch Zone...most likely it'll be Paulie.
Two events are on the schedule and, unfortunately...go off at the same time. On campus, Lynn Stadium is the scene for the UofL vs. UK women's soccer match. This 7:30 kick should be a exciting affair...the Cards are 3-0-1 on the season and look to capture their first win over the Cats since 2010. If that isn't enough, its Foam Finger night at the stadium.
Down at the KFC YUM! Center, Louisville Volleyball takes on Santa Clara...with the first serve scheduled for 7:30 also. Anne Kordes' wide netters are 3-0 on the season. This match was moved from Cardinal Arena to downtown when the KFC became available. Melanie McHenry, the freshman sensation from Speedway, IN. is worth the price of admission alone...but favorites Molly Sauer, Janelle Jenkins, Tess Clark and the rest of the talented 2016 squad promise to have you on the edge of your seat!
Volleyball kicks off the day with a 10 a.m. match against Stony Brook. We'll be doing THE CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR live from the KFC YUM! Center beginning at 11 a.m., so be sure to tune into WCHQ 100.9 FM on crescenthillradio.com for the show if you're not in attendance to catch Paulie, Worldwide and Case. The Cards will also face Auburn at 7:30 p.m. Saturday....which promises to be a tough battle!
On campus...Louisville Field Hockey has their home opener against Brown at 11 a.m. at the Trager.
Ever wish you could be in two places at the same time?
Field Hockey is 2-0 on the season with road wins over I.U. and Miami (OH). If you go, pay close attention to the stellar Cardinal defense, headed by goalie Ayeisha McFerran.
If you missed Field Hockey Saturday, be sure to get out to Trager Stadium for the 1 p.m. match against Richmond Sunday afternoon.
Women's soccer returns to play at 7:30 Sunday night when they host Harvard. It's a quick turnaround after the UK game, so Alison Price, Inger Katrine Bjerke, Taylor Bucklin and the rest of the Kickin' Cards will need you out there for vocal support!
Monday, of course, is Labor Day and you deserve the day off if you've been busy attending all these sporting events...so fire up the grill, buy a few burgers, Italian Sausages and chicken thighs and chill with friends and family. Celebrate the fact that the collective Cards squads will have gone 8-0 over the last four days!
Fall Cardinal sports coming at ya in waves! Make sure you've got plenty of red shirts at the ready and GO CARDS!
LOOK MA, THEY GAVE ME A MICROPHONE!
Paulie makes an appearance this morning on WCHQ's THE MORNING JAM this morning from 8 to 9 a.m. with host Kevin Cox.
WE'll be talking about the upcoming UofL Football game today against Charlotte, the weekend ahead for UofL women's sports and whatever other nonsense that crosses Paulie's mind. It should be fun!
Hopefully, he won't ask me to sing...
