UofL Announces Yard Sale -- Women's Golf Leaves for Stillwater -- Days Without a President? ZERO -- WEDNESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

UofL Announces Yard Sale

A college having a yard sale?  You heard that right!  Well, sort of.  Athletics has announced that their annual spring cleaning yard sale will be this Saturday.  The event will be hosted from 9:00 a.m., to 2:00 p.m. in the Bronze Lot of the Papa John's Cardinal Stadium football parking lot.

Folks looking to find some nice UofL gear can find them at extremely discounted rates.  There will be also sorts of gear available to purchase ranging from shirts, to shoes, the whole galore.  If you want to look like the players, coaches, or me on a daily basis this is the place to go!

For me, this has always been a good place to go to find my size 15 shoes.  And who can say "no" to an extra shirt repping the Cards?  Swing by before or after the Cardinal Couple Radio Hour to see if they have anything that might suit you.

Women's Golf Departs for Stillwater, Oklahoma

Women's golf at UofL baseball vs Indiana
If you're looking to get away from the allergen-ripe city of Louisville then I suggest you head out west for a little golf action.  After their big day three rally in the San Francisco Regional, Louisville women's golf placed high enough to qualify for the NCAA Championships. Stillwater, OK is the venue.

They will begin action on Friday for a three-day first round.  The Top 15 teams out of the 24-team field will advance to Monday's action and possibly see themselves still playing next Tuesday and Wednesday.

Molly Skapik (senior), Olivia Cason (junior), Lauren Hartlage (sophomore), Delaney Shah (sophomore), and Kristin Engle (freshman) will accompany Coach Courtney Trimble in the program's second NCAA Championships appearance.

We wish the women's golf team a safe travels and good luck! Let's hope the Cards can stay "out of the water" in Stillwater!

Dr. Neeli Bendapudi Starts Day One

Hensley and Bendapudi
Louisville has a president!  Dr. Bendapudi's first day was full of action, starting with quite a crowd at Grawemeyer Hall, awaiting her arrival to work.  She gave a speech in front of the student faculty, and media as she tried to contain her excitement.

Dr. Bendapudi then joined the crowd at the baseball game.  Originally scheduled to throw out the opening pitch, our motivated president was battling a rotator cuff injury from unpacking.  In her stead, Megan Hensley threw a strike in front of the roar crowd.  The duo exchanged laughs and smiles as they walked off the field to see Coach McDonnell.

I had the opportunity Louisville's newest star last week when she found herself walking in the front door at my work.  Believe me when I say that she is going to fix Louisville and make this university one of the best in the country.

Other News and Notes

Worldwide posing for an album cover?
Congratulations to our very own Worldwide.  Mr. Jeff McAdams has accepted a new job and will begin here in a few weeks.  If you follow him on social media you've probably already heard, but if not then you will have to wait on Worldwide to give us his own update. We're lobbying the station we broadcast from (WCHQ FM) to get his smash CD "The Best of Worldwide: Vol. 1" regular air time on the playlist.

It may not be the type of music you hear on WCHQ FM 100.9 , but if you want to hear some local music come check out the Louisville Winds in their spring concert at Iroquois Amphitheater this Saturday at 7:30 p.m.  It'll feature songs from the 1930's and 1940's including songs such as The Wizard of Oz medley, Disney medley, 76 Trombones (from The Music Man), Sing, Sing, Sing, and more!

Today's holidays include loving trees (the do help us breathe) and nickel day (very fitting for us bankers).  It's also a great day to enjoy a mimosa or two without feeling guilty.

Paulie wrote a great article on veteran race horse W.B.Smudge over at his other site...HANDICAPPING HEROES...that is a great read on a horse and his refusal to retire. You should go check it out at


Go back for his Preakness picks also, they should be available on Thursday. Our misguided leader made you a lot of money on Oaks and Derby if you followed the site.

Happy Wednesday and Go Cards!

  1. Shoni Schimmel is officially listed as a guard for the Las Vegas Aces on the WNBA site after signing with them yesterday. The Aces have 20 players on their current roster on the site, so we'll see how this signing plays out. Could be a good follow-up chance for her after being waived.

  2. BurnBrother has left a new comment on your post "Mail bag time -- On Shoni, On Myisha, on Asia and ...":

    Las Vegas just picked up Shoni. Smart move...she gets back out West where she'll be happier and closer to home with tons of Native American fans in Nevada, Arizona etc. If she can make the club she'll be an instant draw for the Aces in their first year in Vegas. I don't like Laimbeer but he's not stupid.

  3. Thank you for well wishes on the new job, Jared.

    Re: women's golf...I'm heading out of town for a few days, (Don't worry, I'll be back for the CCRH), and had the pleasure of crossing paths with, and sharing a flight qith, the women's golf team as they depart for Stillwater. I had just a moment to speak with Lauren Hartlage and congratulate them on their successes so far and wish them luck.

    1. You should have challenged her to a elimination match at the Fern Creek Putt-Putt. My's money's on the guy with the new job and new CD coming out! Noonan! Noooonannn!


  4. Just heard he news about Shoni. I’m happy she’s signed her contract! This will be a good chance to rebound after struggling recently after getting cut. If she finds her motivation she can be a heck of a player in the WNBA. We’ll keep an eye out to see how the season plays out for her.

    1. Wow. With 20 players on the Aces roster and less than a week before season gotta wonder how she'll fare in the land of casinos and resort hotels. Laimbeer knows her style, though, when he was at New maybe that's in her favor.

      Shake 'em and shoot the lights out Shoni!


  5. It sounds like Neeli has hit the ground running in her early days as UofL president. All accounts I have seen indicate she'll be a good fit with the campus, athletics and the community.

    I, too was travelling, as of yesterday and ran into the FSU women's golf team in the Atlanta airport. My son knows one of their golfers (Lexie) so I stopped to chat a bit and see if I could pick up any pointers for by woeful game.

    FSU has two golfers (sisters) from Switzerland and on from Finland. I didn't think of it at the time put I should have asked if the warning cry "Fore" is shouted in Europe or if they use a different term.

    Go Cards, Go FSU and play well!
