Like most everyone I know, Iâ€™m still reeling from Louisvilleâ€™s win over Michigan in the championship game. I faced a bit of flak from childhood pals â€“ and my diehard dad â€“ 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, Iâ€™ve never been so fully vested in a university â€“ personally and professionally â€“ 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 womenâ€™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 Iâ€™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 weekâ€™s issue, Iâ€™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, Iâ€™d love to hear from you. firstname.lastname@example.org or 502.498.2052.
