Like most everyone I know, I’m still reeling from Louisville’s win over Michigan in the championship game. I faced a bit of flak from childhood pals – and my diehard dad – for cheering on the Cards, since I was raised in the Great Lakes State, but I make no apologies. I landed in Louisville in 2002 and outside of my alma mater, Central Michigan, I’ve never been so fully vested in a university – personally and professionally – as I am UofL. You can call me Cardinal proud for sure.
We had to put this issue of The Voice to bed before the women’s basketball team could compete for the championship against Connecticut. So as I write this column, I have no idea of the outcome, even though I’m a believer in what this team, led by Coach Jeff Walz, can do. The staff and I look forward to recapping their season next week.
In next week’s issue, I’ll write about Zeke, an almost 90-pound shepherd mix who was rescued from near-death by The Arrow Fund this past fall. If you own or know of someone who owns a disabled pet, I’d love to hear from you. firstname.lastname@example.org or 502.498.2052.
