The Lady Cards got a break in the second round of the Big East tournament when #14 seed Villanova knocked off #11 seed Providence to advance and play the Cards. Louisville took full advantage of the opportunity by putting the Wildcats away early and winning 69-47 in a game that really wasn't that close. Jeff Walz's went to the Cardinal bench midway through the second half when Louisville went up 55-26 after a Antonita Slaughter three. The Cards were led by Shoni Schimmel's 13 points.

For Sharin' Karen, the hits just keep on coming...

(Looks like our femme fatale has taken to the internet to lure her next victim. Her submission to was recently sent to me by my brother Ernie. What he was doing on there, I have no idea. The site is for wealthy people looking for casual dating opportunities, so I'm told. Whatever!)

It's official. The commonwealth has now officially deemed Ms. Syphers as "void of credibility", according to Dave Stengel. Rick Pitino has… Continue

Final Call to the post for Kentucky Racing?

Posted on July 4, 2009 at 2:55pm 0 Comments

(Churchill bugler Steve Buttleman may be looking to join a Chicago or Blood, Sweat and Tears knockoff band if the fortunes of Kentucky racing continue to demise. His physician wife might need to perform CPR on the dying industry.)

Is it TAPS for Kentucky horseracing? It's getting harder and harder to find a pulse here in the state. Yes, 33,000 revelers packed the Downs for night racing a couple of days ago...and if Churchill doesn't… Continue

Charmaine Tay verbals to Lady Cards

( the "King of Pop" acknowledging that he is a big Earl Clark fan by flashing "the five" to onlookers...or is he predicting the number of football wins for 2009? Unfortunately, we'll never know. RIP, Smooth Criminal)

Jersey hoopster Charmaine Tay has verballed to the Cards, giving them three shooting guards in the class of 2010-2011. Joining Tay are Antonia Slaughter from Christian Academy and ex-Bulter all stater Tia Gibbs… Continue

Angel experienceing the ups and downs of a rookie season

Posted on July 1, 2009 at 4:18pm 0 Comments

Watching the WNBA Tuesday night game between the Minnesota Lynx and the Atlanta Dream, it seemed strange not to see #35 Angel McCoughtry dominating on the court. It's a whole different ballgame at this level, and rookies do learn the hard way...but, let's face it:

The Atlanta Dream needs what she can deliver.

First, a three point marksman is sorely needed by the franchise to prevent teams from pacing back in a zone on them. Angel can hit the three. She got no attempts at… Continue

Better down the road?

Can anyone ever remember (4) Cardinal Basketball players going in the respective NBA and WNBA Drafts? Earl Clark, T-Will, Angel and Candyce?

Good, yes! Better down the road? Time will tell. Looking at next Lady Cards will be probable for pro status...unless Tise Wright surprises us all and has a bang up year. On the guys side, some options. Sosa, Smith and Samuels? They could be additions. The question a lot of us have... at… Continue

Cool profile Sonja!
CB Sam Madison of NYG and K David Akers of Philly........

Awesome choices!

I love your stuff and your sense of humor, so feel free to post links to your articles over at Card Game at will, or whatever you like.

I think we should all be one happy family, though ITV and Rivals think that being a Card Fan online, means reaching for your wallet, and not posting links to great UofL articles at other sites.........

Ok, so I inadvertantly joined Cardinal Dominance twice. Unfortunately, you said all those nice things about me on the accidental page I wanted to get rid of. Next time you get some warm fuzzies, send them my way. LOL.
