Thanks to Mike Rutherford over at Card Chronicle (or whoever sent him this), who somehow always has these handy, we now have this little gem for the summer:
Nothing quite says “Cardinal Summer” like Rick Pitino relaxing on a raft throwing up Ls, making it look so easy. Calipari stays up at night wishing he could rock out on a raft like that. And the yellow swim trunks? Ha! Calipari wishes! How does it make all of you feel that no matter what kind of fun you have at the pool this summer, it will never be as awesome as this? Unless, of course, you’re reading this, Coach Strong, in which case let me beg your forgiveness. That makes me think, if anyone out there can get a picture of Pitino on a raft throwing up Ls with Charlie Strong on a raft right next to him throwing up a couple of Ls (maybe they each have a beer or something…I don’t know, get creative), both wearing matching shades, then I think it’s safe to say that it would go down as the greatest moment in the history of photography. If you don’t agree with me or think that statement is the epitome of hyperbole, then I’m assuming you are not a true Cards fan, you hate America, and you chose to see “Eat Pray Love” over “The Expendables” two summers ago. And if you can somehow manage to include Howard and Denny in the background of the pic? My God…could you imagine it? You’d be permanently blinded by the awesomeness (fact).
Anyway, enjoy your 4th of July weekend (can we still call it that?) Cards fans. Less than two months until football season. Get excited.
