I've had a week to reflect and get over the shock of witnessing my Cards win a National Championship. With the immediate emotion of the night wearing off I started to think what other UofL games I went to gave me the same joyful, excited, and dare I say orgasmic feelings. So here they are, and please tell me which ones made you feel the same.
1. Title game in Atlanta.
From the point where Luke hit that first 3, til the closing horn. It was a nonstop rush of "WE'RE GOING TO DO THIS". I screamed, I cried, I hugged strangers.
2. The UK rain game.
It was my first year at UofL and living on campus. I can't remember much of the game before they evacuated the stadium due to lightning. I walked all the way back to my dorm, just got there in time for the TV to tell me that the game was about to start back up. Ran all the way back to the stadium to what turned into a party/wet tshirt contest/amazing OT victory. Still have the next days CJ and ticket stubb framed and hanging in my wall with Stallings sig on it.
3. Liberty Bowl vs Boise
2 previous bowl games I had been to had crappy weather and losses (Detroit? Who has a bowl game in Detroit?) but the weather was perfect and the game was amazing. When you nearly pass out due to lack of oxygen from yelling, it's a good time.
