TVs throughout Louisville will be tuned into the Lady Cardinals trying to knock off a third number one seed in the NCAA women's basketball tournament when they play the undefeated Connecticut Huskies at 8:42 p.m. tonight.
According to The Courier-Journal
, the Louisville-Oklahoma semifinal game was "the highest-rated women's basketball telecast in the city ever for ESPN or ESPN2."
Tonight's championship game should shatter that record.

You can make the game in St. Louis and not even have to cut out of work early to get there by the opening tip. Tickets ($81) are still available through Ticketmaster.com
or at the Scottrade Center's box office.
The game starts at 8:42 p.m. EDT and it's about a four-hour drive to St. Louis, so you'll need to leave by 4:30 p.m.

Tuesday nights are lady's nights at Sully's Saloon
and women drink on Triddian's tab (whoever he is) from 10 p.m. to 12 a.m. With the Louisville women outperforming them men this year in the tournament, taking advantage of that deal seems like an appropriate way to watch the women play for the national championship while the Louisville men do whatever it is they do when their season is over (go to class per chance?).

The entire NCAA tournament has been one big happy hour at Avalon

For those of you not up for heading out to watch the game on a work or school night, it's on ESPN (channel 31 for Insight customers, with channel 923 showing the game in high definition). The pregame starts at 7:30 p.m., so you'll be able to feel better about yourself for not having watched a game all season until tonight.
