The day after the unlikely World Series match up between the San Francisco Giants and the Texas Rangers was confirmed, I scrolled through both teams' active line-ups. I didn't know much about the players, so I started researching. Here's what I dug up.
"Be aggressive. B-E aggressive. B-E A-G-G-R-E-S-S-I-V-E."
My friend was lucky enough to score a ticket to last week's Monday Night Football game between the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Jets. It was Brett Favre's first game after Deadspin.com broke the story about his attempted cell phone seduction of former Jets' game-day employee, Jenn Sterger.
I'm no psychic, but I knew the U.S. Ryder Cup team would lose on Monday.
This is not a column about school spirit. I know that the majority of Richmond students are proud to be Spiders, because if we weren't, then we would have transferred by now.
New stadium? Check. New high-profile transfer quarterback? Check. New greater sense of school pride surrounding the football team? If last Saturday's game against the University of Delaware is any indication, that box most assuredly will remain blank. While starting off fairly full, the student section provided only a handful of dedicated fans standing and cheering on their Spiders by game's end. A mass of people even left at halftime, when the game was still close with Richmond trailing by a mere 13-6 deficit.
Mascots are a silly thing.
Like father, like son. Like mother, like daughter. These adages typify inherent qualities others see in father/son and mother/daughter pairs.

You'd think that working out is working out, plain and simple ‐ whether it be running on the treadmill at home, trying to drop your recently acquired college pounds or fooling yourself into thinking that you can keep them off at the lovely Richmond gym ‐ and you'd think that all workouts are created equal. Wrong.
"If you build it, they will come."
Late last month, 21-year-old Rory McIlroy made a shocking statement.

What is considered a sport?
I've seen athletes tear their ACLs to shreds, endure excruciating surgeries and then lie on a training room table as athletic trainers use heavy steel blades to forcibly break up scar tissue in the most sensitive parts of their knees. I've also watched the most mammoth football players have to dunk their entire bodies in tubs of ice on Sunday in order to walk to class on Monday without limping.
I'd like to remember Roger Clemens' split-fingered fastballs, not the Feds fingerprinting him. I'd like to recall how he always seemed to make great pitches when he was behind in the count, not the one count of obstruction of Congress, two counts of perjury and three counts of making false statements that he now faces.
Dear University of Virginia fans,
Last September, the probation officers of nine homeless men in Georgia ordered them to, in the words of the AP wire service, "live in the woods behind a suburban Atlanta office park." When the state government discovered this, Georgia promptly ordered them out.
Who said New Year's was the only time for change? The back-to-school season is also a time for new beginnings and is a chance to re-engage academically, or to engage at all for that matter!
Get the missing posters ready, our campus is missing important events for the second consecutive year. Hang the signs from every telephone pole, put them on every tack board in every building. Heck, let's start serving milk cartons at D-Hall so we can put the message there as well.
I have a friend on this campus ...
