Shaken…Not stirred.

The Cardinals are in the Big Game in the Big East and the Big Moment. I can’t speak for anyone but me; however, I’m sure most of the Cardinal faithful did not expect them to be playing in the Big East Tournament Championship game. If you can honestly say you did, you have my gratitude and admiration for being very confident and optimistic, or my empathy and prayers in your time of need.

Me, I hoped for a Friday night game, expected to flame out on Thursday against Marquette. It’s not that I have little faith in the team; it’s that we seemed in such a funk that I honestly thought it would take the NCAA Tournament to jerk us out of it. Instead what I am proud to witness is a resurgence and re-birth of the team I thought we had.

This is somehow a testament to players, coaches, fans, and luck. But we seem to finally be healthy, happy, and adjusted. I admit I was shaken by the games prior to the BET. But now I must say I’m very impressed at how they have responded to adversity. Once again, what I thought would happen, didn’t, the unexpected surprised me once more.

Wow, I love this team. So winning tonight would be great, fantastic and all those other good words. It would also be the culmination of unexpected. As Jack Burton said in Big Trouble in Little China, “You know Wang, I kinda feel invincible”. And remember it’s all in the reflexes.

GOOOOO! CARDS! Beat Cincinnati. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
