Holiday Activities, Games and Travel

Cardinal Couple spares no expense as this week they send Sandy to the west coast for coverage of the top game in the country.   CC also plans to provide backup laundry coverage during the trip.

Travel to Stanford v UConn Game
This week not only finds me frantically trying to keep up with this week’s laundry but also packing for a trip to Palo Alto, CA (home of Stanford Women’s Basketball) where hopefully the weather God’s will allow me to arrive in time to watch the UConn @ Stanford women’s basketball game this Saturday where either Stanford’s # 1 national position will be solidified or where Big East member Connecticut will take over the top ranking. 
Currently the trip is in flux as when I went to the Cardinal Couple worldwide office to submit my travel voucher I found that Timmy had cleaned out the travel and candy fundraiser accounts for his next week’s trip to Co-Co’s SEP game being held in the People’s Republic of Domesticated Chimps located somewhere off the coast of Tahiti.  I have been forced to barter for his twin cousin’s staying at my home with my 4 legged kids.  
I hope to provide a first-hand report of the game where it is reported that all 7500 seats have been sold.   Louisville once again finds itself so fortunate to be located in an area where not only basketball but all of women’s sports are so well supported by the community.
The student athlete of the week is the swim team’s Lindsey Stephens.  She plans to become a physical therapist after graduation.  Her profile can be found at  She is a senior from Louisville, KY and is a member of the Dive Team.
This Year’s Lacrosse team has named their team captains.  Coach Kellie Young has announced that the team has again named Katie Oliverio, Monica Negron and Janaye Dzikewich as captains for the 2nd year.  This year begins the LaCrosse teams 6th season of play with the first match against Canisius at home on February 10.   I hope their uniforms have a snow suit option.  Go to for individual and team information.
Congratulations continue to go to Louisville for our team facilities.  The Tom Musselman Practice Facility, Cardinal Club, has been selected as a 2012 Golf Range Association of America Top 50 Range in the Private Category. 
Make sure your calendars are marked for Louisville’s next game which is at home on New Year ’s Eve.   End your 2012 year in the best possible way which begins at the KFC YUM! Center where at 6:00 pm you can watch the 12th ranked (11-2) women defeat Tennessee State in the last non-conference game of the season.   After the game you can move on to dinner at one of the downtown eateries while waiting to participate in the downtown festivities and ringing in the New Year.


  1. Lacrosse hasn't done very well in BIG EAST competition since its formation. How does ACC lacrosse stack up?

  2. Maryland has been the powerhouse in ACC lacrosse. With them leaving, UNC and Duke are solid top 10 teams. Louisville will need to step in up big time in order not to be a cellar dweller here.
