Fan of the Week honors go to Joey Strader, a fan of the football Cards for more than 25 years. Joey was tailgating at a U of L-UK game in Lexington in 1995 when his wife Lisa said she felt a little funny. After returning from a restroom, she told Joey that they would soon deliver their first child.
A friend informed police, who began clearing a path for the Straders’ car. When asked if he wanted a police escort to a Lexington hospital, Joey replied, “There’s no way a kid of mine is going to be born in Lexington.” A few hours later, Hannah was born a Louisville hospital. (Hannah is the taller daughter in the photo, with dad and Rachel, 8.)
