When Kevin Ware saw that his broken tibia was sticking six inches out of his leg, he screamed and went into shock. Then he repeatedly implored his team to beat Duke. More than likely, his surprisingly acute presence of mind didn't include foreseeing an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman BECAUSE of that leg.
Love him or hate him, it's hard not to agree that Louisville's Rick Pitino is one of the best coaches in college basketball. His Cardinals are in the Final Four and look to be the favorites heading into this weekend's games.
Of course, all of you Kentucky Wildcat fans remember him from his National Championship days in Lexington.
Until midway through the first half of Sunday's Louisville/Duke Elite Eight matchup, the big story of the 2013 NCAA Tournament was Florida Gulf Coast. Then Louisville guard Kevin Ware, while trying to prevent a Duke three-pointer, landed on his left leg and it broke.
I really can't believe I am contributing to the madness. But, I grew up watching my grandfather yell at the television anytime the Kentucky Wildcats were playing basketball. He'd yell when they were awesome. He'd yell even louder when they were terrible. So, I completely understand that some people "bleed blue." I have seen it with my own eyes and heard it, repeatedly, with my own ears. And this video and original song that scores it are for every UK Wildcat fan out there who is as dedicated to the team as Russell F. Adams.
Announced this morning through several news outlets, the University of Louisville's application to the Atlantic Coast Conference has been accepted. The unanimous vote came from the ACC's Council of Presidents.
FacebookWBKR General Sales Manager Traci Davis came to me and told me that this morning, while she was in her office, she heard a thud, like something had hit the window. Sure enough, a bird had flown into it. But it wasn't just any bird. It was a cardinal. She took that as an omen.
Okay, to be fair, this photo is NOT from a UK/Louisville game. It's from last year's NCAA Tournament. You know, when Louisville lost to fellow KY school Morehead State? In the what is now called, the second round?!? The news photo went viral and Kentucky fans were licking their chops with glee.
I'm a huge college basketball fan. And I support all Kentucky teams. But I get a little jazz from hardcore University of Kentucky fans because I also like Louisville. So I was pretty pumped over the Cardinals' big win Sunday over the Pittsburgh Panthers--a top 5 team. And I' m happy today because a certain Louisville cheerleader's life was spared.
