Go Cards

It's Sunday, so my wife Karen is making her more-or-less-weekly telephone rounds with her family back in Louisville, KY. She was on the phone with her mother when I heard her say:

So were you guys in mourning last night?

So I'm thinking: who died yesterday? Oh, right, the Pope. Karen's family is Catholic, so that makes sense. But the next thing out of Karen's mouth is:

I know, they just couldn't hit a shot in the last 5 minutes!

Did I mention that Karen's family is from Louisville? So now I'm thinking: oh, those Cardinals. Shows you how little I know about what it means to come from basketball country.
