Here we are for the final installment of Hungry and Driven….for now. First things first. (Don’t Iggy me) Most of you know I have a column I do during peak sports season called 55. That column will be making its debut right before the UL/Miami football game Monday night September 1st. No set time as of now but starting the next week it will be back to its usual time, 7:55. We will be more interactive, more fun and bring you more info than ever. Also plan on having a few guest writers of 55 during the season. Stay tuned. Also here is a sneak peek at the brand new logo for 55 designed by CSZ’s good friend Tim of @UofLBirdsNest. If you aren’t following him on Twitter, do so now. He is awesome.
This week…..on 55…..
As we come down to the last few episodes of 55, it’s only fitting that the end of the basketball season is near too. I just wish there was something to talk about. Oh yeah…we get uk again! So in the spirit of revenge on those we despise more than Digger Phelps (I may have went too far) here are the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is….55.
1) On Thursday night we opened up our defense of the National Championship with a tough game vs the Manhattan Jaspers, coached by former Louisville asst coach Steve Masiello. I like to believe we played the basketball version of a game called chess. Rick didn’t want to embarrass Mass so we played tit-for-tat (lol) and won the game when we needed to. Played smothering defense as well.
3) Well that had the opposite effect than I intended
4) Nevertheless, we move onto our next conquest which are the mighty Billikens of Saint Louis. Top 10 team at times this year, former conference foes…what could scare us about the Billikens?
6) Oh yeah..That was creepy….in more ways then one
7) I digress
As seen in Mondays episode of 55 (click here), cheap pop, I announced a contest for the loyal, faithful and beautiful followers of the journey, nay the odyssey I call 55…That comes out every Monday at 7:55 on CardinalSportsZone.com or I tweet it out on Twitter at @Jeremy_CSZ. (Getting really good at cheap pops) DM me on Twitter, Private message me on Facebook or just comment on this story the hashtag #First15. You will be put in a drawing to be able to write the first 15 bulletpoints of 55 this week. Only need to enter once and since I will be doing these drawings the third Sunday of each month, everyone will have a chance to take part in the phenomenon called 55. Ok, sometimes I get carried away. Just thought this would be cool to give you guys something back for supporting the site and our work. If you have to ask me what is 55, CSZ or who I am you will probably get disqualified. Just kidding….not really.
