A Plea and a Rant

The Plea

The University of Louisville Women's Basketball Team travels to Oregon to take on the University of Portland in the cozy confines of the Chiles Center on Saturday December 17th. I'm calling all Card fans and alum in Oregon to come out and support the team. It's rare that any of our teams make it to the West Coast and even rarer when they make it all the way up to the nether regions of the Pacific Northwest. Tickets are $6 (all seats general admission). Seniors and juniors (you be the judge as to what that means) can get in for a mere $4.

I've been to two UofL games out here with mixed results of attendance: '01 men's basketball team v/Oregon-(abysmal turnout) and '10 football game v/Oregon State (awesome turnout). So my hope is that we get some consistent support.

Why should you attend? 'Cause you're a Card fan and you support everything Louisville. But if you need more reasons (besides the cheap price) then how about just welcome the Schimmel sisters back home to Oregon? My guess is there will be a pretty good turn out from friends, family and Native tribes from throughout the Northwest so that should be a cool thing to see. If that's not enough then I think just getting the chance to see Pistol Shoni play live should be worth it.

The Rant

So I've lived out here for over a decade now and have had some chance encounters with UofL fans, but nothing really organized. There was a loose Portland metro area group of a handful of folks, but that never materialized into actually doing anything. So instead of being part of the problem I decided to be part of the solution. I e-mailed the UofL Alumni Association to try and set up a club out here. I e-mailed again. And again. Finally I e-mailed everyone in the department and finally got a response and someone was 'put on the case' . Turns out there are quite a few alum in the area so that was promising. Got one e-mail back and then absolutely nothing after numerous attempts of contacting again. Shouldn't they be contacting me and not the other way around?. Not good business UofL. Not good at all. So if anyone reading this has anything to do with the alumni association let them know that they need really develop their customer service skills. Just sayin'.
