My blood pressure is 120 over Louisville, I hope yours is too.

Andy Lyons

I know that we’re all waiting for the 13-14 season to start, but while we’re here at Midsummer, I’d like to reflect on what a truly fine summer it is. As Mike said, we own it. And why?

Because Year of the Cardinal. Because College World Series, two Final Fours, and Sugar Bowl Championship.

Because National Championship.

And so this summer has been different. I’ve noticed that when bad days happen, it’s all still pretty good. When it’s dreary out, it’s a beautiful day. When the dog bites, bee stings, or I’m feeling sad – I’m happy.

My blood pressure is 120 over Louisville.

When the new car gets a scratch from the front door to the gas cap?

120 over Louisville.

When my 1 year old decides that insomnia is fun, and makes terroristic demands of me at 1, 3, 5:30 and 7 AM?

120 over Louisville.

When the prick moron boss whom I’d like to c*** p*** across the building sends me yet another urgent email marked with an exclamation point (!) for the fifth time today?

120 over Louisville.

So I encourage you, CardChronicloids, to remember that this is our summer. A summer of beauty, of truth, of revelry, of relaxation. Sit on the beach, read a book, have that double margarita. There are very few things that should bother you this summer, and, in fact, for the rest of the year. Because no matter what, we have the Year of the Cardinal, the CWS, a men’s and women’s National Championship game, a Sugar Bowl Championship against the best of the SEC.

And a National Championship in basketball.

My son told me this morning, “Daddy, it’s a beautiful day.”

Yes it is son.

I’m having a silly, colorful drink made of liquors I didn’t know existed on my back porch.

My blood pressure is 120 over Louisville.

I hope yours is too.
