Stomp-fest Ends In Tears For Cincy , Huggins Gets A Hug From The Wizard

Posted in Basketball, Gridiron at 11:38 pm by

So maybe that pogo action on the Louisville logo wasn™t the greatest idea? And who knew the Cards would be so sensitive about that kinda thing, given that they sold naming rights to their stadium to that lowest of the low rent pizza chains, Papa John™s?

A little more to be proud of, then, for Cincinnati’s Men’s basketball team, after beating Purdue 79-59 as part of the John Wooden Tradition doubleheader. And who better to soak up the glory of this made-for-TV showcase than Bob Huggins., truly the modern incarnation of the Wizard Of Westwood, what with the former’s committment to the student-athlete, staying puke-free, etc.

    Papa John’s is headquartered in Louisville, so it’s only natural that the stadium be named after the low-rent pizza chain. After all, it’s our low-rent pizza chain. Thankfully, Louisville didn’t get that NBA team, so YUM Corp. (Taco Bell, KFC, Long John Silvers) couldn’t buy naming rights to a new arena. Seriously, they were considering calling it “The Bucket.”
