Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh CardNation, Don’t you Dare be sour, CLAP your hands for the podcast champ and feeeeeeeeeeeeel the POWERRRRRRRRRRRR! Sorry. If you don’t watch wrestling then you probably didn’t get that. My bad. But as you can tell I am super pumped to bring back the award-winning (I printed it out) longest running episodic post on CardinalSportsZone.com…..55. It is kind of a throwback Thursday edition of 55. Without further adieu here are the most ridiculous, outlandish, interesting or just downright obnoxious things I have heard this week. THIS is 55…..
Quarter 1: What’s been up?
-Well here is what’s been up. Justin left the site in January. We wish him nothing but the best. What this did was switched the humongous responsibilities of editor and site moderator to yours truly. Along with being in charge of advertising and promotion for the radio show and in charge of social media for both I have been swamped! I have not had time to do a podcast in a while and this is my first 55 in several months. As long as I keep connected to CardNation I will be ok. This is a joy for myself, Steve and the contributors of CardinalSportsZone.com. Let’s get into some stuff!
Quarter 2: Poll Position
-The Baseball Cards have climbed back up to #4 after being embarrassed in Miami and did the same to Top 10 Virginia this past weekend. The Card host Virginia Tech this Saturday, Sunday & Monday. Admission is free and so is parking. Come out and enjoy the best deal for your dollar for entertainment in Louisville!
-Check CardinalSportsZone.com for the latest story on the Football teams latest Top 25 ranking in this off-season!
-UofL Softball entered the top 25 this week as well sitting at #25. Their demolition of WKU yesterday didn’t hurt. Read CSZ’ Jeff Nunn’s write-up here
–The University of Louisville women’s lacrosse team cracked the top five of two major polls on Monday for the first time in school history. The Cardinals are ranked fifth in both the Lacrosse Magazine and IWLCA/Inside Lacrosse polls. (via Kim Pemberton)
-Finally the Women’s Rowing team have received their highest ranking in school history. The Cards checked in at #15 this week. They compete this weekend!
