Switching into full Christmas mode for the next couple of days, time to immerse ourselves totally into the holiday season. 

What a year it has been for the University of Louisville, experiencing the tremendous highs and lowly lows. Just when we thought nothing worse could happen, something did. But the lows are only temporary, with so many good people associated with the University.  

Loyal administrators and staff keeping the school moving forward in the face of unprecedented challenges, academicians and athletes performing at high levels, fans and supporters remaining faithful, continuing to support UofL without fail, propelling the University forward to new plateaus.

Much to be thankful for, knowing the challenges only make us stronger, the issues will be resolved and the university has so much more to achieve .

Thanks for being UofL fans, appreciate your support of Card Game as well. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
