Happy 4th of July


It is officially 4th of July weekend for TheCrunchZone.com. We’ll be back with coverage on the 5th of July.  In the meantime (unless something crazy happens) we encourage you to go outside, fire up the grill, light some fireworks while celebrating our nation’s 239th birthday.  It would have been fitting for the U.S. Women to play Great Britain on Sunday, but instead we’ll take a win over Japan to extend the celebration.  If the Cards land a commitment or if there is breaking news of the minor variety, we’ll send a firework up in celebration and you can read about it after the holiday weekend on TheCrunchZone.com.

Go Cards, Go America.

Louisville Sports: Year in Review 2014-15 from @CrumsRevenge on Vimeo.

The Louisville Cardinals wrapped up a successful first year in the ACC.

This is a 2 video, 2 narrator and 10 minute musical tribute to the 2014-15 season.

Summary: We don’t win EVERYTHING, but we have great leadership to believe in. In addition, the ups and downs the community celebrates (or suffers) together is second to none. Go Cards.

Hope you like. Go Cards.
