Anyone who spends even five minutes on our campus can tell we have an incredible student body with overwhelming amounts of school pride. While most of you have your game plans for celebrating our Final Four game tomorrow night, here are some easy suggestions of how to bleed blue all weekend long:
- Wear blue and white, no matter where you are. How else are the other crazy Cats fans supposed to know you are one of them?
-Make sure you have a good place to watch the game. If you're not on your way to NOLA (New Orleans, LA if you haven't caught on to the acronym yet) then find a local restaurant to have some snacks and share the experience with a room full of fans like you. Some top suggestions are Pazzo's, Two Keys, and Rafferty's (known to many as Joe B. Hall's favorite).
-If you like your couch, protect it. I'm not sure if anyone knows where this tradition came from and I personally don't quite understand it, so my couch will be safe.
-No matter where you may be this weekend, start the C-A-T-S cheer. It will never get old. Never.
-This one is specifically for the NOLA bound: Cheer at the top of your lungs. Make sure the team knows you are there and you are proud of them. Anything less than that is a waste of a ticket.
-Be respectful of the Louisville fans whose paths you cross this weekend. Isn't it good to know you're going to school in a basketball state? After how hard our team has worked, anything less than good sportsmanship from us as fans would only put a damper on their accomplishments.
