Okay staff, most things went pretty well for the opening week of Louisville football. Just wanted to follow up on a few things with the sound guy at Papa John’s:
- Turn the volume button on the PA system backwards about three or four notches. It’s too loud when teenagers with iPod plugs are complaining.
- Justin Burke even had a problem communicating over the racket. Home field is supposed to be an advantage.
- Get rid of the junk music on the opponents’ third down. Nobody likes it and it absolutely kills any chance for a crowd crescendo in the Crunch Zone.
- No, you don’t have to use bongs or gongs. Too many other teams are doing that. The train whistle might work because opponents already hate the sound.
- On kickoffs, turn the music off before the kicker approaches the ball. You’re going to cost us more penalties if you keep it up. Your job, too, if you don’t start using some common sense.
- Who told you to take “Calling In The Air Tonight” out of the pre-game selections? Get it back in there, pronto.
Followup note to K. C. Scull, the stadium manager:
- Thanks for moving the Porta Pots out of the walkways in the Green Lot. Much improved experience walking to the stadium.
