Happy Wednesday and a happy pre-Fourth of July! In preparation for tomorrow’s big day I will keep today’s post short and sweet for you.


The biggest news from yesterday is that a Cardinal Couple favorite, Asia Taylor, is back in the WNBA. The former UofL star signed with the Minnesota Lynx. Minnesota is fifth in the league at 7-6 and is riding a three-game win streak currently. Best of luck to A-Tayy with the Lynx! It's her second time joining the Lynx in her career. The signing of Taylor comes courtesy of a roster exemption by the WNBA because of multiple injuries on the squad. 

Asia started her WNBA career with Minnesota, picked in the third round of the WNBA Draft. She should have an immediate impact, since the Lynx are without Damiris Dantas, Karima Christmas-Kelly, Seimone Augustus and Jessica Shepard...all on the injured list. 


Softball announced a transfer coming in for the upcoming season. Chardonnay Harris joins the Cards from Auburn. Harris has a long list of awards and accomplishments including multiple high school state championships, several double-digit strikeout performances and a couple SEC Pitcher of the Week honors. The left-handed pitcher, something UofL has been missing, will have two years of eligibility remaining.


Congrats to the USWNT (that's the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team) on a 2-1 victory over England yesterday. Christen Press and Alex Morgan each scored in the victory that saw an injured Megan Rapinoe sidelined with a hamstring injury. The US was fortunate to have an England goal called back because of offsides and a spectacular save by keeper Alyssa Naeher on a penalty kick.

USA waits to see who they will meet in the finals of Sunday. Today's semifinal match between The Netherlands and Sweden will provide the answer. 


Case Hoskins or Andrew Luck? -- We're not certain. 
 Case Hoskins among the masses at a Louisville Bats game.  The Bats games have sevveral Cardinal Couple contributors out therre on a regular basis. 

You can find Daryl Foust out there regularly as well, behind the camera. 

Or, wait patiently and I'll probably be by to take a photo of you, like I did of Case last night.  Or was it Andrew Luck?  


A History of Louisville Women’s Sports --  Chapter 6 will be out this Friday. It marks the halfway point of the coverage, and if you’ve been following my seasonal approach to the sports you have probably figured out that this Friday will be women’s basketball.

Why are you setting off fireworks at midnight
on June 30??
As we approach tomorrow’s holiday please remember to be smart and use common sense when celebrating. But also have fun!

Case Hoskins will have the Thursday write-up, swapping days with Paulie this week. Case will venture to Indiana and attend the Madison watch boats go fast with no left turns. Last we heard, there is no parimutuel wagering available for the event, but, camping is involved. S'mores, anyone?  

Happy Wednesday and Go Cards!



  1. Apologies for the yellow print today.

    Here's the reason. Jared has been sending his articles to me via e-mail and cell phone because his laptop is kaput again. I then copy and paste them to the site, adding photos as needed.

    Except, it appears Blogger got an early start on the Fourth of July weekend and would let me use only the yellow color for print adjustment. Ans, it was balky about it as well. The original article arrived in black print, which can't be read on our red background very easily.

    Ah, the life and times of the senile senior editor of Cardinal Couple.

    (WHY WAS I WRITING THIS COMMENT?) Who left the caps on? Has anyone seen my coffee cup?


  2. Everyone have a great 4th! I'm marinating ribs as I type this. And yeah they're gonna be awesome.

  3. As a note, the boats do, in fact, turn left in the Regatta.

    1. You heard it from the expert. My knowledge of boats is limited to the rowing team and I'm 99% sure they won't be competing in Madison...unless it's for a good camping site.
