A Letter to the North Pole -- SUNDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Dear Santa,

We Louisville fans have been very nice this year. Please ignore when we yell at other fans or scream at the refs for making bad calls. Those actions don't mean we should be on the naughty list; doesn't everyone deserve a first second third fourth chance? We've been waiting such a long time for a championship in a team sport, and we keep being teased by long tournament runs. Couldn't you find it in your heart to tuck a few more wins into our stocking for 2024? If it's not too much to ask, we'd love for women's basketball to get over the hump this year, for softball to make a deep run, for lacrosse to have a winning record, for soccer to return to the NCAA tournament, and for field hockey and volleyball to break through in their respective tourneys. This doesn't seem too greedy. After all, you do give gifts like that to Stanford and Texas all the time on their way to College Cups. 

If those successes are too much to ask for, then I guess I can keep it simpler. Could you give us some joy and excitement as Louisville fans? There has been a lot of dark around the athletics program and we could really use something not ending in disappointment to lighten things up a bit. If you're going to drive a hard bargain, I guess we could settle for a team championship and an individual championship this year. 

Looking forward to another year supporting our teams, regardless of the ultimate results. I hope this letter gets to you in time. It'd be a shame to find another lump of coal tomorrow morning.

Cardinal Couple

Merry Christmas, everyone!
