Dug back in photo archives to January 2011 to find my best shot of a red cardinal. Posting it in honor of the Cardinals, University of Louisville men's basketball team, winning the national tournament Sunday night in Atlanta.
After last night in New Orleans was hoping to congratulate the U of L Lady Cards on winning the women's NCAA tournament. Unfortunately, they didn't prevail against UCONN, but what a season they've had where--as their warmups proclaimed--they Rise to the Occasion. They've certainly done that all season and Louisville can be proud of two champion Cardinal teams.
Finally, just for fun, I caught these His 'n Her tails yesterday. The Lady Cardinal is a bit challenging to photograph, unlike the male who seems a bit calmer.
