Happy Fourth of July!

Alex Morgan scored the go-ahead goal
against England on her birthday and
celebrated by 'drinking tea'.
Today is Independence Day, the day celebrated as when America formally declared its breaking of ties with England. The USWNT celebrated accordingly with a victory over the Brits on Tuesday, and the USMNT took a victory over Jamaica into the wee hours of the morning of July 4th.

We here at Cardinal Couple wish everyone a happy and safe holiday! Whether it's celebrating with a cookout and fireworks, lounging by water, or just chilling and enjoying the day off...have a great one and be safe around those things "that go BOOM"! 

UofL Softball Adds Another Tiger

Yesterday, Louisville formally announced the addition of another Auburn transfer. Carmyn Greenwood, an outfielder, joins the Cards and adds yet another set of sisters to the Louisville roster. Greenwood's younger sister, Cassady, was a freshman catcher this past season. Carmyn joins Louisville as a rising red-shirt junior.

No official word on whether she will be immediately eligible, but Louisville will be happy to add depth to the outfield positions. Greenwood started 13 times and had 52 appearances last season, with the best game of her career coming in the Tuscon regional, where she registered three hits. Look out for new names on the back of jerseys next year as we'll be seeing Car. and Cas. leading Greenwood.

Bloomer Heads to Duke

Following an outstanding season at Male High School, Josh Bloomer is taking a huge leap forward to be an assistant softball coach at Duke University. Bloomer led the Bulldogs to a 39-0 record en route to a state and national championship. Those who follow the site and show may be aware that Cardinal Couple regularly hosts two male alums in Jared and Daryl, who will likely be sad to see their alma mater lose such a talented coach.

Either that, or they're sad for the Cards to now have to face said coach. Duke softball is new in town, joining the league in 2017. The Cards played the Blue Devils in Durham in 2018, taking 2/3 games. The two did not compete last season, setting up a return to the Ville for Bloomer this year. Good luck to the former Louisvillian in all aspects except for when he plays the Cards.

Until next time, Go Cards!
