You may just wonder why we’d post a link to a story about the University of Louisville receiving a $10 million donation from Papa John’s earlier today, providing additional monies ($22 million total) for Cardinal Stadium (including naming rights) and enabling an expansion and renovation project to move forward.

Well, when you visit that link, take a look at the comment attributed to Papa John’s CEO at the end of the posting and you’ll understand. The PapaJohns.com Bowl is currently hosted at our own Legion Field and is scheduled to be played this year on December 22. This is the first public comment by the title sponsor suggesting that the game might be moved (in this case after renovations to the facility are completed).

I hate to beat this (not quite dead) horse but I consider this a comment that needs to be added to a growing list of reasons why Birmingham should, at the very least, upgrade its sporting and convention venues. If city, county, and state leaders continue their subscription to Apathy Weekly, we can go ahead add the PapaJohn's.com bowl to a long list of events that have bolted from Birmingham in search of better facilities and leadership.
