Hello again readers.  I hope you are finding some fun things to do this summer and enjoy this Memorial weekend however you choose to spend it.  I celebrated another birthday since the last time I checked in,  the pictures in today's post make me think I might've lost another inch in height this past trip around the sun. If anyone finds it, please return asap..

I will probably find my way over to a golf course at some point this weekend and I am looking forward to slamming the laptop shut at the end of the work day today!   


I will admit though, work isn't so bad when you get awesome visitors.

 We had the newest WBB member, Hennie Van Schaik, stop by the office!  I was glad to have a chance to meet Hennie and help process some paperwork to make them officially a Cardinal!  

She even indulged us in marking on the International Cards map where her hometown is.

Your newest 6'3 Cardinal forward...Hennie Van Schaik and Daryl. We're 99% sure who would win the opening tip between these two.  

Facts about Urk, Netherlands

  • Population about 21,000 

  • About an hour away from Amsterdam

  • The Urkish dialect is one of the oldest and most distinctive and includes elements that are older than standard Dutch and were never part of the standard language.

  • Until World War II, Urk was an island and could only be reached by boat.                                               
  • Hennie comes to Louisville from Cal-State Bakersfield, where she played as a freshman and sophomore. She was CSUB's best scoring threat and started 20 of the 22 games she played in last year. 

Cards in the Pros

The Washington Mystics (1-2) go to Wintrust Arena on Friday where they'll meet the Chicago Sky (2-0) on Friday 5/26.  Tip off is set for 8 p.m. Two Cards WBB greats are on the rosters. 

Dana Evans (Chicago) is averaging 7.5 points 2 rebounds and 3.5 assists to start the 2023 season where she played almost 35 minutes against the Phoenix Mercury on Sunday. Unfortunately, Myisha Hines-Allen (Washington) is still sidelined with a knee injury and will not play vs Chicago.  


We invite you to join us for Saturday's Cardinal Couple Rdio Hour Podcast. We'll  recap the week's activities in Louisville women's sports and look ahead to next week. Last we heard, it'll be Paulie, Jeff, Jared and Daryl on the podcast. Check it out on the Cardinal Couple You Tube Page. 

Have a GREAT holiday weekend everyone.  

As always, Go Cards!!
