Interview with Sam Purcell -- A Cardinal Couple Quiz -- MONDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
SAM PURCELL INTERVIEW
I was able to catch up with Sam Purcell for today's interview. Admittedly, his energies and responsibilities have changed dramatically since the out-break of COVID-19 and cancellation of DI Sports. Instead of preparing for what most likely would have been the Cardinal WBB Sweet Sixteen opponent later this week or instructing players, he's busy helping to organizing birthday parties for his kids and adjusting to social distancing.
That doesn't mean we didn't talk hoops in our chat. We covered a lot of hoops. And, I think you'll enjoy the interview with "my man Sam" that we have linked up for you below.

CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR
If you didn't catch the Saturday podcast via Skype of The Cardinal Couple Radio Hour Podcast with me, Jeff, Case and Jared..you can click the picture at the top of the page or go to this link. We hope you enjoy it, we talk a lot of basketball after getting caught up with each other.
The "A" team, or "the knuckleheads" were in rare form and on their "game" Saturday. We went a bit over the "Hour" in our title of the broadcast, but, what...you got a pressing appointment or something?
