Papa John Seats In White

Where else could you get photography of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium expansion during a snow storm? And who else would be zany enough to venture out in the mess to deliver the goods?

Work is proceeding at the stadium in spite of the white stuff, five inches already on the field. The seats are covered with the residue and the field resembles a snow-covered lake awaiting ice skaters

But piercing through the peaceful scene are the shrill sounds of forklifts, the whirring of drills and pounding of hammers, the electricians and carpenters working on the luxury suites.

Dozens of vehicles outside the football complex, indicating that Charlie Strong and crew are hard at work as well, dedicated to the challenge at hand, of restoring the University of Louisville football program to prominence.

What’s that? You want video, too? (Complaints about shaky video will be dealt with harshly.)

    Brrr. Let’s hope the ONLY time we see those seats covered in white is when WE aren’t in them for a game. Unless, of course, it’s a white-out game. Go Cards!
