Louisville fans wearing blue for a cause

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville fans may be decked out in blue Friday, but they haven't switched sides.

The Kentucky Cancer Program at the University of Louisville is sponsoring "Blue of L Day" to promote colon cancer screening awareness.

Louisville star Darrell Griffith, who led the team to its first NCAA championship in 1980; Louisville sportscaster and "Voice of the Cards" Paul Rogers; and Madeline Abramson, wife of Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson, will be featured at events during the day.

Participants will see the "Incredible Colon," a walk-through replica of the human colon to educate the public about colorectal cancer.

Area businesses are also participating and will decorate Gallopalooza horses at several locations with blue ribbons.
