I LOVE the city so don't think I'm here just denigrating for the sake of denigrating it, but no one cares and no amount of pumping it up to non-Louisville folks is going to earn Louisville [city/school/other] one additional iota of respect. Louisville will never be on par with UK in terms of statewide interest. Not a win yesterday, or the largest tax base, or even national championships will change that.
Right now it all comes off [on both sides] as a pissing contest and the only thing thats being accomplished is more animosity.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
