We’re focused on Equestricon and Squash here at the Rusty Satellite Show. Horse racing’s new fan event takes over the Kentucky International Convention Center Monday and Tuesday with more than 50 separate attractions. I’m talking with Daniel Tordjman, a former journalist who is part of the team that’s bringing the second-ever Equestricon to town. Listen in to see how you can win tickets.
Who knew that we had one of the best squash players and coaches right here in town at the Louisville Boat Club? I talked with Lee Scott, who came to the States as an outstanding teacher of the game, which is a lot more popular on the East Coast and in Europe. But Scott is getting a lot of folks interested in the game, and is hosting the state championship of the sport here. We’re joined by John O’Callaghan, who is sponsoring the tournament and agreed to give me a go on the court.
Progressive ideas like TopGolf, the NBA and the proposed $500 million One Park high-rise at Grinstead and Lexington roads always seem to meet with resistance around here, which is not something that the young people we’re trying to attract see as a positive. But maybe we’re doing better.
This weekend is your best chance to see if Bobby Petrino’s Louisville Cardinals will ever win another game, but it’s also adult Halloween weekend, with a full slate to spooky drinking games and costumes on planning calendars.
It’s all in the Rusty Satellite Show’s 277th episode — thanks to Passport Health Plan, Heuser Health and the Eye Care Institute for making the show possible.
