Merry Christmas, bring on the holidays for UofL fans

Shopping done, the gifts are wrapped, so we are switching into Christmas mode, fully immersing ourselves in the holiday season.

Every sport at the University of Louisville with an attraction all its own, the fans forever faithful in the pursuit of wins with each new challenge. UofL providing dreams for youngsters old and young, diversions from the rigors, and all the other ups and downs of everyday life.

All those new faces in key positions — Neeli Bendapudi, Vince Tyra, Chris Mack, Scott Satterfield, Dani Busboom Kelly, and John Michael Hayden — exceeding expectations. Dan McDonnell and Jeff Walz maintaining unprecedented success, still aiming higher.

Much to be thankful for, knowing the challenges have made us stronger, the issues will be resolved and the university has so much more to achieve. 

Thanks for being Louisville fans. The Observer appreciates your support of Card Game.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Merry Christmas To All

Switching into full Christmas mode for the next couple of days, time to immerse ourselves totally into the holiday season. 

What a year it has been for the University of Louisville, experiencing the tremendous highs and lowly lows. Just when we thought nothing worse could happen, something did. But the lows are only temporary, with so many good people associated with the University.  

Loyal administrators and staff keeping the school moving forward in the face of unprecedented challenges, academicians and athletes performing at high levels, fans and supporters remaining faithful, continuing to support UofL without fail, propelling the University forward to new plateaus.

Much to be thankful for, knowing the challenges only make us stronger, the issues will be resolved and the university has so much more to achieve .

Thanks for being UofL fans, appreciate your support of Card Game as well. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Merry Christmas, Louisville fans

Observing the rituals and traditions of the Christmas season, while allowing for some spontaneity and flexibility, sometimes requires all the energies we can manage.

Despite all the madness and hassles, the season remains a very special time, celebrating one of history’s enduring events, giving reason for hope amidst the turmoil of mankind. About creating joy sometimes where there is next to none, making other lives better, reminding us of why families are so important.

That being said, the observer shifts full time into the holiday mode over the next couple of days. If you have a minute or two, enjoy one of my all-time favorite seasonal classics. Have a great Christmas.
