  1. Good stuff. That Christmas gift is turning out to be a blessing for visitors to Card Game. Thanks for the extra effort. You were almost in his face.

  2. Excellent video, Charlie! Many thanks to all the attendees at the Parrish House Weds. for what turned out to be a great night. The crowd was nearly capacity and it was nice to meet a lot of posters from this board , as well as cardinalsports.com

    The highlight was when Strong entered the Parrish House. Thanks to Howie at LSR/CSR for inviting him and Rocco Gasparra for bringing him over. A spur of the moment decision.

    He was greeting with rock star excitement when he strolled thru the crowd, delivered an inspiring talk and fielded questions from audience.

    We’re Strong, Charlie….

  3. I think that Charlie Strong is the breath of fresh air that we needed. Not expecting too much but I think were going in the right direction.

  4. Thanks for putting this up. What a breath of fresh air. My first UofL game was in 1952 with Johnny U as the qb and I’m just as excited now as I was when I was heading out to that game. The dark days are over!!
