Sometimes in my head there are so many thoughts, opinions and ideas spinning around, that if you peeked into it you might start fitting me for a straight jacket. I really need to start writing some of them down before I forget. I want to tell you it’s organized chaos up there but it’s more scattered than some Waffle House hash browns. One of my most recent thoughts was how I needed to write a Thanksgiving piece about how thankful I am that Louisville is a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference but I didn’t want to prematurely bring the holiday upon us. We haven’t even made it to Halloween, so I was just going to write these thoughts down and revisit them in a month from now.

If you don’t follow or read Andre Adelson then you are really missing out. In my opinion she is the best. I have not met her but I will one day. This story is one that makes you remember that there is more to life than just sports and that sports can be used as a tool for the betterment of the world. I’m proud of Lamar and all my Cardinal family. I pray for this young lady, her friends and her family. If you only read one story today, please read this story… Read the rest of this entry
