Got A Passport Yet?

Fans who have grown accustomed to following U of L to bowl games might want to be applying for or renewing passports just in case. If the Cards win a sixth game, there is a distinct possibility Louisville could be invited to the International Bowl in Toronto, Canada on Jan. 6. This will be the second year for the bowl, which features teams from the Big East and Mid-Atlantic Conference (MAC). Hey, a bowl is a bowl. And, yes, passports are definitely required. Don’t know what to make of the Notre Dame fight song playing on the International Bowl web site. Notre Dame (1-8) is not going to a bowl.

On The Silver Screen: The U of L-West Virginia football game will be one of the feature presentations Thursday evening at the Stonybrook Cinema de Lux and the Preston theaters. Admission is $8.75 for adults, $6 for seniors and children, plus a $1 service charge. The presentation has an “NR” rating, which means it might be offensive to some folks. Order tickets here. Nice to see some creative approaches being applied. Now if U of L can get some cheerleaders and Lady Birds to the theater (Seem to be dozens of cheerleaders; all of them aren’t going Morgantown, are they?), it will add to the big game atmosphere.

Attended the U of L-West Virginia volleyball clash Friday, watching the Lady Cards trump the Mountaineers in three games, 30-20, 30-28 and 30-21 — setting the tone for “Beat West Virginia” week. The women, with two players standing 6-foot-8 and 6-foot-6 are an attractive but intimidating team. They are undefeated after 11 matchups in the Big East, and will face Pittsburgh Sunday at 2. All games are officially sold out but standing room tickets are available for $5.
