Give Louisville fans credit for trying to drum up enthusiasm for the Cardinals in the big, blue shadow of Kentucky. But they need a change in tactics.
In June a group of Cardinals fans paid for a billboard near UK, in Frankfort, that read “Louisville is for the Birds.” Shortly after 5 PM ET on Sunday, the Louisville blog Card Chronicle posted a picture — sent to them by Facebook user Elle Raiser — of the billboard defaced. It’s unclear how the billboard was defaced.
This comes a week after the release of an email from the project superintendent at the construction site of Louisville’s new Student Recreation Center (SRC) stipulating that support for teams other than Louisville would not be tolerated.
Maybe Cardinals fans should advertise their former Hall of Fame coach’s prowess at the poker table.
