Happy victory Monday one and all. Hope you have enjoyed your weekend. It wasn’t just a successful weekend for the Cardinals.

I was able to make it home and watch my two youngest boys win their flag football league championship, vanquishing their rivals for the first time in four tries. Then I followed that up with six more hours of football as both my older boys teams stayed undefeated on the season.

Plus, ASU upset UW, it had to be one of the better football weekends in a while.

Onto the news coming out of the Cardinals big 38-33 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
