This weekend -- just a quick sort and fold.

No time in Sandy’s house this weekend for laundry
Paul and Sonja have been fortunate enough to play the role of football team groupie but in the meantime the remaining contributors struggle to keep up with their high quality of reporting.  With no time available this wekend I brought in a couple of sub-contributors for assistance.
Central Cardinal Club 2012 Holiday Boutique and Style Show
We are proud to announce that the Central Cardinal Club is organizing a Holiday Boutique and Style Show all for the purpose of your being able to meet The Cardinal Couple and many of those contributing articles to the site.  Paul will be at the October 16 show from its 11 am beginning and others will join him during the day until the program ends at 9 pm.  Timmy is still undecided if he will be available for autographs.

The show is being held at the PNC Club in Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.  The GPS address is 2800 S Floyd St.  The Cardinal Couple team thanks Susan Sweeney Crum for agreeing to emcee for the Style Show Luncheon.
Actually the benefit is to provide financial assistance to the Cardinal Athletic Fund and U of L Athletics.   Fundraising and entertainment includes $16.00 lunch and $20.00 dinner buffets, fashion show, free day long wine tasting and a silent auction.   For additional details contact 502.649.2638 email
Red White Scrimmage
I understand last night’s men’s basketball Red White Scrimmage went well and was successful.  As a note of interest:  Many teams across the country are combining such new season events for their men’s and women’s basketball teams.    In recent years, U of L has normally been ahead of the curve when it comes to promotion of their women’s teams but not this time.               
I am sure that there are many good reasons for the UL women’s basketball team to not have either a combined or sole pre-season event but other schools across the nation have begun thinking differently.  I don’t really believe that # 20 ranked and UL highly recruited guard Saniya Chong signed with Connecticut on Saturday only because of their Friday night combined men’s and women’s basketball team kick off (“First Night”) but her official visit and signing did conveniently occur during the weekend of the event.  It couldn’t have hurt for recruits to see such pre-season excitement and attention being given to both of the teams.
If you haven’t seen the video yet, go to and catch Angel in a Commercial thanking Louisville for our support and promoting attendance at U of L women’s basketball.  The video was taken during her appreciation moment at this season’s U of L football game and encourages Louisville fans to cause UL to become the number 1 team for women’s attendance in the nation.
There is still time to get your season tickets.  Go to or call the ticket office.   Single session tickets do not expect to be available until 1-2 weeks before the season starts.
Additional Reminder
Additional Reminder: The basketball tip off luncheon is set for Tuesday October 23.  Be sure to call and make your reservations for the noon start time on center court of the KFC YUM! Center.   $30.00 tickets can be purchased by calling the U of L special events office at (502) 852-0706 or completing the form found at  Jeff Walz is the featured speaker.
Volleyball played St. John’s Friday at St. Johns and came away with a  3-2 win over St. in BIG EAST volleyball action. Scoring was 21-25, 25-19, 25-20, 19-25 and 15-9.  The women are now 17-3 and 6-1 in the Big East and play again today at 2:00  at UConn.

Today the Golf team continues play at the Ruth’s Chris Tar Heel Invitational. The team finished play in yesterday Second round in 12th place with Tar Lyons leading for the Cardinals.  All day play continues today at Chapel Hill, NC.
Yesterday the cross country team participated in the NCAA Division I Pre-National Meet at E.P. Tom Sawyer Park which is the site for this year’s 2012 NCAA Championships.  The U of L women were lead by sophomore Michelle Molodynia who completed a career best 6K time o f22:16.10.
Tomorrow and Tuesday Women’s Tennis will participate in all day competition at the ITA Ohio Valley Regional Championships which is held at West Lafayette, Indiana.
