If you remember, critics derided the assumed nickname of the downtown basketball arena when Yum! Brands assumed the role of title sponsor. How could they not name the arena after KFC? Would there be the same connection to the community if they had called it the Long John Silver’s Yum! Center? Of course the arena became the KFC Yum! Center. Even though the people who didn’t want a new venue for Louisville jokingly called it the Bucket. That’s the place I get to go to shoot University of Louisville basketball. I took a micro four thirds camera to shoot some behind scenes stuff that goes on during warm up and time outs.
Louisville didn’t do so hot against North Carolina State but I enjoyed making the pictures. You can find them here. The rest of the photos go in this bucket. See what I did there?
Long live the Bucket.
