Monday Morning Minutia

ul-cardinal-head-logo2-thumb1 Rick Pitino is being true to his word when he talks about team quickness, expecting to get the ball across center court in less than four seconds. A couple of passes and it’s there. He told the scrimmage crowd that players who can’t keep pace may just have to transfer. In a kidding way, but you knew he meant it.

ul-cardinal-head-logo2-thumb1 You’ve heard the expression there’s not a bad seat in Freedom Hall? Well, the well-healed fans on the lower level may never admit it, but some of them are getting jibed. Specifically, if you are sitting in the second or third row on either side of the court, you are constantly straining to see around the person in front of you. Not much fun, especially when they are wearing baseball caps like during last night’s scrimmage. I’ll take the upper level any day over that.

ul-cardinal-head-logo2-thumb1Card Game is still trying to figure out whether Sonja was at the UofL-South Florida football game and, if she was, whether she was watching Breeder’s Cup races on a Dick Tracy wristwatch. We may never know for sure but I can’t imagine her being at a game disguised as an empty seat. At any rate, she provides a recap of the Breeders Cup results here.

    Sonja was, indeed, at PJCS…until the final train whistle and then in the area for a considerable period after for post game celebrations and discussions. I like the idea of that Dick Tracy wristwatch, though…but we call them Blackberry today, Charlie. Still working on the Star Trek type transporter device that I’ll need Sat. Nov. 8th, when I’ve got to be able to get from Pittsburgh to Northern Kentucky University to see football, and both men and womens hoops. Have already tried the “Bewitched” nose wrinkle and the “I Dream of Jeannie” head nod, but neither seem to do anything for me but get me dizzy and provide an overwhelming desire to blow my nose. Right now, it looks like football will take preference over the two hoops games, and hopefully we’ll be 7-2 when we enter Pitt to raid the condiment tables at Heinz Field. Why does John Belushi, mustard and “Animal House” come to mind? TOGA! TOGA! TOGA!
