Monday afternoon we learned via director of video operations Doug Davenport that the Louisville basketball team had decided to celebrate freshman Mangok Mathiang's birthday at one of the best b-day venues in the city.
How do we celebrate Mangok's birthday??? Team trip to Lazer Blaze, obviously. I need a big time performance from manager/staff team.— Doug Davenport (@doug_davenport) October 8, 2012
For the unaware, Lazer Blaze is a laser tag venue in St. Matthews. It housed the absolute best birthday parties of my childhood (you didn't go toe-to-toe with "Bulldog" in the arena and come out with a top five score), and to be honest I've been adamant about my desire to go back for about the past decade.
Needless to say I'm more than a little bit jealous of these guys tonight.
Picturing Rick Pitino sitting down and watching the instructional video while wearing one of those vests is an image I won't soon forget, and I'm happy about that.
This is seriously the easiest time ever to be a Louisville basketball fan.
