With my alma mater weekend approaching in the Naughty Volvo S60 Biggest Fan of the Big East Contest, contemplating the possibilities of what to do on my naughty weekend has been intoxicating. The company is providing game tickets and a Volvo S60 for the weekend of the University of Louisville vs. Kentucky basketball game.

There are so many things that could easily make up a Top 25, the elimination process has been a tough one:
  • The chance to see my Cardinals absolutely squash the Mildcats of Kentucky, and see the Big East represent, once again, this year against the SEC, as well as they have done against the other conferences in competition.  Louisville’s new arena is the best in the country, pro or college, and it will be quite an experience to see the biggest game of the year become the biggest victory over a rival and get a chance to send a couple of naughty heckles Coach Calipari’s way.
  • Getting away from the hustle and bustle of life to soak in a game and an entire weekend, generously provided by Volvo and the Cake Group of New York, and get to see my beautiful wife all decked out in her Card gear sitting in the passenger seat of an exquisite automobile is almost a perfect experience.  I get to show off the S60, a hot lady, all the while taking in the sights and sounds of the city on the weekend of the big game.
  • My alma mater game just happens to fall on New Year’s Eve!  We will be partying it up after safely parking the Volvo for the night.  A hotel room provided for and the possibilities are endless of what could happen.  Louisville is electric when Kentucky comes to town and the nightlife in the city is top notch, especially after a big W.
  • Cruising the streets of Louisville has always been a favorite thing of mine to do.  No matter if I had a destination or not, I would just drive and drive.   No comparison, however, with what I used to drive back in the day compared to my wheels for that weekend.  A three hundred horsepower, all wheel drive chariot?  Are you kidding me?  No wheel I have ever sat behind will even be close.
  • Seeing friends and family and getting to show off the Volvo and make them all jealous that I get to participate in this experience will be fantastic.  You should see their faces when I tell them about the Biggest Fan of the Big East and the stakes.  I’m not exactly sure that all of them believe me.  They will undoubtedly be convinced when I roll up on them in my S60.
The alma mater weekend naughtiness is about to begin…

  1. Sounds like a great weekend, Steve. One question though–was the “hot lady” the Volvo, or your wife?!
    You are right about Big East basketball–all the rest of college sports is just filler, IMHO. Go Cards!

  2. I am ready to go! Thank You Volvo and Cake for giving us a season to remember. This will stand out in our lives together as one heck of a way to support the Big East!

    Honey, hope I don’t dissapoint you =) Can’t wait for a Naughty weekend!

  3. Awesome Steve! I hope you have a good time! I can’t believe somebody is actually footing the bill for you to see the Cards/Cats! That’s great that they picked that game to send you to. Hotel and car on top of that? Unbelievable.

  4. I don’t mind the commercialism if it makes a great U of L fan happy. Good luck in the competition.

  5. Sounds like winner, Steve. I like to see U of L beat UK to shreds. U of K (University of Kenlucky).
