Looking for my dream job

Last weekend I was watching "My Best Friend's Wedding" while I was working out, and Julia Roberts' character said that Dermot Mulroney's character, a sports reporter, didn't have a job for a grown man. It's a sentiment I've heard before because my grandfather cut his career at The Baltimore Sun short to get a "real job" that would allow him to support his family.

Time for October baseball

The major league baseball playoffs started last night, and as good as this year's postseason teams are, there are a number of other talented teams whose playoff dreams ended because of the way playoff teams are determined. If you follow one of the teams that knew in August that it would be statistically impossible for it to still be playing in October, you may have lost interest in watching baseball during the last few weeks. It's especially difficult to maintain an interest in a losing team when you're relying on the University of Richmond cable channels, away from the regional networks that broadcast your team when you're at home. But don't worry, my friends, because as of last night, all remaining major league baseball games will be televised on campus channels for your viewing pleasure.

Two seniors recruiting students to play frisbee golf

By Jennifer Hoffman Collegian Reporter Trade in your golf clubs and balls for a flying disc, place a pole with a metal basket in each hole on the course and voila!, you get Frisbee golf, or "frolf," a sport played by millions of people around the world, according to the Freestyle Frisbee Association's Web site. Just ask University of Richmond seniors Jeff Russell and Logan Turner, who have been flinging Frisbees together twice a week since their freshman year. The goal of Frisbee golf, known as disc golf by professionals, is to hit the parabolic-shaped chains on the top half of a 3-foot pole with the disc so it drops into the basket.
