We just returned from the the Sir Kendal G.L. Isaacs gymnasium and needless to say, it was amazing experience. Think of watching basketball in a high school gymnasium and then think about what it would be like to see Louisville play in it. As soon as I arrived and saw the size of the place, I knew it was going to be awesome.
Here are a few post game thoughts, with a lot more to come later:
- In case any of you were wondering how serious Rick Pitino was about "Louisville First," we now have our answer:
These were worn by the players and managers. It made me so happy and I thought it would be the highlight of my night. However, as soon as Chane Behanan started to dominate everyone, I quickly forgot about the shirts. I hope they start selling these shortly.

- Finally, Mike Rutherford was informed by Chicken Knowles that he would be in attendance for tonight's game. Mike then informed me that I would be fired if I failed to get a picture with the man. Fortunately, at least for tonight, I get to keep my job:
I'll be posting later with my thoughts on the game and some more incredible pictures, which is what most of you are concerned about anyway. Did I mention Chane Behanan is an absolute monster? Stay tuned.
