All 55,000 seats have been sold for the University of Louisville vs. Marshall football game Saturday, marking the fourth official sellout at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium since the facility was expanded from 42,000 prior to last season.

Trace Adkins

Star Power — Big news, I’m told, for country music fans. Trace Adkins will be singing the National Anthem prior to the game. He’s had several No. 1 hits on the country charts including. “This Ain’t No Thinkin’ Thing,” “Ladies Love Country Boys” and  “You’re Gonna Miss This.”

How about a new one about U of L football? The staff can’t seem to agree on what to bring the team on the field with these days. The observer might start listening to country & western.

The Cup Is Home — The Governor’s Cup trophy will be on display in the Budweiser Street Fest area. Get your photo taken with it, and e-mail it to your UK friends.
