On this morning’s show, Matt read an article entitled “Being a Louisville Man” from a website called The Crunch Zone. The author, Mark Blankenbaker, aka @UofLSheriff50, wrote a lengthy and dramatic defense for his fan base after a week of scandal, and well, it was hilarious. What does it mean to be a Louisville Man? A few excerpts…
It’s a source of pride. A “Louisville Man” does the right thing. He’s honest. He does what he needs to do. He loves his family, he takes pride in his work, he attempts to make himself better EVERY DAY. A “Louisville Man” has integrity, he displays his ethics, he is honorable. A “Louisville Man” is not perfect, but he strives to be.
A “Louisville Man” does not turn his back on other “Louisville Men” in hardship, but there are certainly times when someone can lose the honor of distinction…….but until that time, we remain together. Who better than to lead Louisville now than Rick Pitino? A man who knows precisely how to rise from the ashes burned either by his own hand or by the hand of others…….. “A Louisville Man”.
(Sadly, no word on what it means to be a “Louisville woman,” although I’m scared to ask in case it requires a credit card number.)
Matt’s dramatic reading of the article is priceless, and you should stop what you’re doing to listen:
