The great thing about this weekend's Super Bowl is that baseball season is right around the corner. Pitchers and catchers start to report for spring training on Feb. 17 and games start on March 2. In case you have not paid attention to the sport since Nov. 4 when the New York Yankees defeated the Philadelphia Phillies for their 27th World Series title, here are my winners and losers of the offseason.
Alex Lebenstein was a Holocaust survivor who had more than enough reasons to hate, but was instead an advocate for tolerance and forgiveness. He died Thursday, Jan. 28, at the age of 82.
The National Football League will add a new twist to an old tradition this Sunday with its decision to move the time and place of the Pro Bowl, its version of an All-Star Game.
They're the smallest, slowest and weakest players on most football teams. They're on the field for no more than a minute each game and they rarely take a hit, but this year's NFL playoffs have been a testament to the vital importance of place kickers.
With 11 seconds left during the FCS quarterfinal game last month, the Richmond Spiders were mere clock ticks away from reaching their third-straight national semifinal. But when those 11 seconds slowly disappeared, so did many of the people that helped put together the magical run of the last three seasons.
"Intelligence plus character, that is the goal of true education."
"This is the 7:23 train to Grand Central," announces the screeching robotwoman voice. "This station is Tarryytownnnn, the next station stop is Irrrviiinggtonnnn."
When the story first broke that former University of Richmond football coach Mike London would be leaving his alma mater for the University of Virginia, I couldn't help but feel disappointed that a man we proudly claimed as our own would jump ship so quickly. This disappointment, however, was not merely a feeling of betrayal or anger at another FBS/BCS school poaching talent from our proud university. Rather, there was a hint of fatalism surrounding the entire affair, a knowledge that as much as I love this university and as much as men like London have professed to love it as well, Richmond is still seen as a mere stepping stone for those with aspirations for greater fame and fortune.
Imagine this "icebreaker" game: Participants sit in a circle of chairs, and when a characteristic that you possess is shouted, you run to another chair. Whoever is the last one standing loses and must stand in the middle of the circle.
Last week we detailed four models of power dynamics in relationships: The Giver and the Taker, The Mongoose versus the Cobra, The Hand, and The Dominant and Submissive. In detailing the four models, we created paradigms that appear to leave no room for change. The Taker will seemingly always take. The Mongoose is assumed to always strike at its most vulnerable moment. The Hand presumably creates an intimate tyrant. The Dominant's name alone implies its continual dominance.
If you gave me a million dollars, I would spend it on sports tickets.
I don't remember much about the first University of Richmond football game I ever saw, but I definitely remember the morning before it.
In last week's column I talked about the basics of Reserve Officers Training Corps. This week, I am going to talk about what happens to those cadets who graduate from the program.
The Reserve Officers' Training Corps is a national program that allows people who are interested in joining the U.S. Army to go to college while training for the Army. The Army will pay for a portion of tuition, depending on the cost. Room and board, etc., can be covered by scholarships, loans or however else students decide to pay for school.
We lied last time when we said we would give you more translations this semester. As a group, the tenants of 507 decided it would be more worthwhile to explore the various perspectives existing in relationships that create particular power dynamics between two people involved with each other.
The pinstripes did it again. Last Wednesday the New York Yankees won their 27th World Series title by defeating the Phillies 7-3 in Game 6.
I had never even heard of Robert Crumb before Tuesday, when we tried to find someone to cover the event for The Collegian. In the end, it wasn't covered, but then Tim Patterson submitted his opinion piece. Now, I have done what I can to read up on the subject -- I read all of the submitted opinions and those on the Facebook page, "Protest Crumb at UR."
The college basketball season tips off in less than two weeks, and there are already plenty of storylines involving coaches to keep an eye on. Here are six coaches who need a strong season to meet the high expectations placed on their teams by the fans and media.
The No. 9 ranked Louisiana State University Tigers will face the No 2. ranked University of Alabama Crimson Tide in what could be the second-best match-up in college football this weekend.
ST. LOUIS -- Saturday was the fourth time I huddled with my team in the middle of an open field, yards from the starting line and moments before the race for the Atlantic 10 Cross Country Championship title.
