Diehard U of L fan Justin Thurman grew up going to Louisville games at Old Cardinal Stadium, so when he heard it was finally coming down a couple of years ago, he decided to document everything he could about the old home of Cardinal football.
The result is this video, where Thurman tours the abandoned stadium and says a final farewell to the place that saw so many good times.
Like so many others, my first Louisville football fan experience came at Old Cardinal.
I don’t remember much other than I was very young, we played Southern Miss, my dad was angry about the belligerently drunk people behind us, and we lost the game.
Nice little nostalgia on a Friday morning.
