Tailgater of the Week

You never know what you’re going to see during U of L tailgating. Many fans will go to great lengths to show their loyalty to their favorite school.

The most unique vehicle in the Green Lot this year is a former EMS vehicle which is marked CSI and stands for Cardinal Sideline Instigators. The truck, distinctly decorated in red and black with U of L logos, is owned by Chad Crick, of Fern Creek.

Even though he was raised in Muhlenberg County, Chad says he has been a Card fan forever. (Unfortunately, his girl friend is a UK fan.) He got the former ambulance at an auction in Columbus, Ohio. He knew from the start that it was the perfect tailgate vehicle, even adding an attached grill to the vehicle’s exterior.

Congratulations, Chad. You are the Tailgater of the Week.
