It has been almost a week, and it still hasn’t set in. I was there, I saw it happen, and it still isn’t real yet. On Monday I didn’t only get to see my beloved Cardinals win the first National Championship of my life time, I got to live it. I had to take some time off to let everything hit, and it still hasn’t done that. I’ve watched the replay, I’ve watched endless highlights, I still get chills every time Trezl throws down the oop. Maybe this time next year it will all feel like real life.
Enough with the sappy stuff, lets move on to the wallpapers. I decided to go through a make a wallpaper for each player (that saw action in the tourney) with a similar theme. I would have liked to have included everyone, as I know they all played a roll, but I couldn’t find pictures of some of the guys. This is the first of many wallpapers I will be posting celebrating our 3rd Title, so stay tuned for the rest.
The world watched on Sunday as the Louisville Cardinal made another stop on the revenge tour to play the Duke Blue Devils. Basketball fans across the country tuned in hoping to see another great match up between the 2 power houses, with the winning earning a sport in Atlanta for the FInal Four. Those fans saw more than just a basketball game, they saw a group of young men that are more than a basketball team. In the 1st half Kevin Ware went down with a horrific injury, the worst that I’ve seen in sports, but it was what happened following the injury that deserves the headlines.
Moments after watching their teammate, their brother, break his leg the Louisville Cardinals had 2 choices; get distracted and lose the game or win for Kevin Ware. Ware called the team over and told them to win. Don’t worry about him, but win the game. Tears were dried away, emotions checked, and the remaining Cardinals did what Kevin said, they won the game. We have all read countless stories recapping the events of that day, but the boys have work to do for Ware. We have a few days before we are back on the court, and hopefully this can adorn your background leading up to the big game. And hopefully, we can Win 4 Ware.
There has been a lot of talk about Kevin Ware this offseason, and from the feedback I’ve heard from the red/white scrimmage, it is well deserved. Ware has always had the athleticism to make an impact, but his suspect decision making and ball handling held him back last year. That appears to be in the past, and Kevin is expected to make an impact for the number 2 ranked Cardinals this year.
I’ve done a couple wallpaper with Dieng blocking the moon, and they have gone over well, so I thought I would put a new twist on it. The picture of Ware was taken by Matt Wickman from Hell In The Hall, I hope to use many more of his pictures in the future. Take a second to check out his work, you won’t be disappointed.
