Card Family Faces Major Challenge

University of Louisville followers are being challenged to step forward for one of their own. Justin Bowen is just another fan but, with his technical skills, he has enriched the lives of other Card fans.

Under the user name of “Jerb,” he has posted many highlights of UofL football and basketball games at Inside The Ville and on YouTube, making it possible to relive some exhilarating moments over and over.  Dozens of them are available at Jshawn7erb’s Louisville Videos.

Jerb’s 5-year-old son, Shawn, has just been diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a cancer afflicting the white blood cells. The family is dealing with some very tough times, now and in the future.   You can learn more about Shawn and make a donation at this web site

Card Game is joining with the Hell In The Hall, Cardinal Empire and Ditchball blogs and the BBC Tavern in St. Matthews to co-sponsor a fundraiser for the Bowens on Saturday, Nov. 8. That could very well coincide with the Pittsburgh football game, the time for which has yet to be announced. If the two things do come together so much the better, watching a Card game and helping the family.  The event will definitely include a silent auction and other opportunities to help.

Some fans at Inside The Ville are tentatively planning a golf scramble at Oxmoor Country Club on the same date.

More details on these events as they become available. Get on board.
