For your obscure Paulie musical item of the day...The Bears (with Adrian Belew) second album was titled Rise and Shine. The opening cut "Aches And Pains" is linked up below. They were a multi-album band that never really hit it huge, but put out ome really interesting music. Would it really be a Cardinal Couple article without some kind of musical reference?
Rise and Shine -- The Bears "Aches and Pains"
|Jimmy Yu, at graduation, with Syd Zambrotta|
The women are coming in to the game after a good-but-not-great showing against a middle of the conference pack Miami team in Miami. The arena is close to a lower bowl sell-out, so fans are responding as the season progresses.
One return of note for the women's game, beloved former Card Jimmy Yu returns to the KFC Yum! Center. Jimmy joined the Wake Forest staff after graduating from UofL. During his time with the Cards, he served as head manager and intern for Jeff Walz. Another behind-the-scenes personality that I haven't had the opportunity to personally meet, but again, by all accounts, just a genuinely great guy. I'm sure the staff and players are will be excited to see him again.
Track and Field
|Alexis Gibbons won the long jump. The Cardinal Couple|
Interview with her was undoubtedly responsible for this.
The combined men's and women's team picked up 11 total wins in the meet, and the men and women both won the overall meet for their respective genders.
Among those victories, Teague Peck and Carlos Coleman crossed the line first in the 400m and 600m events, Javen Reeves and Christian Buckley won in the high jump and shot put in the field events, Brooke Raglin won the 60m in the sprint events, while Dorcas Wasike picked up two wins in the 800m and the mile (really, you switch to imperial units at that point? Come on T&F, you can do better!). Cardinal Couple favorite Emmonnie Henderson picked up a win for the 3rd straight week in shot put, and an up and comer, Makenli Forrest picked up her first collegiate win in the weight throw.
We're not done, yet...
Gabriela Leon topped the pack in the pole vault, and Alexis Gibbons took first in the long jump.
A great weekend for the Track and Field Cards.
Women's Tennis will be in action this morning against in-state Western Kentucky. That one is an 11 a.m. start. The best way I've found to keep up with the action if you're not able to attend is to follow them on Twitter or at gocards.com. And, of course...here at CARDINAL COUPLE
