Since the last Louisville Hate Day, there have been some changes in my life. I’ve gotten married. I’ve had a child. Some might say that I’ve just flat-out gotten soft. I can live with that. So, it should probably come as no surprise that I just didn’t feel right about starting off this day of hostility with something that was just purely hateful. Instead, I thought it would be only fair if we caught up with some of our Cardinal pals to see what they’ve been up to this summer. Ladies and gentleman, I present to you a summer scrapbook from our friends at the school down I-64. Enjoy.
New football coach Charlie Strong, while happy to finally have his chance at being a head coach, spent all summer trying to figure out why the ghost of Ron Zook was following him everywhere.
They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. To be honest, I’m not sure if that applies here. All I know is that after another late night at Porcini’s, Rick Pitino and a young lady locked eyes from across the room, he downed his drink while the rhythm boomed, he took her hand and skipped the names and then he…well, you know.
Needless to say, Steve Kragthorpe was not happy about cleaning up the mess in the morning. But, that’s what he gets for picking up all those extra shifts.
DeMar Dorsey got away.
Tom Jurich, relieved that his basketball coach had handled things in a classy way and that he had a new football coach, finally had time to just relax and play with his toys.
