How to become a devout sports fan

Life as a fanatic fan can be hard work, and the true test comes when your favorite team is losing. Being a sports editor and a trained journalist I learned you have to remain unbiased in your reporting. However, it's hard to remain biased when you are obviously going to root (secretly if necessary) for your school's teams to win.

Nothing is too queer for pop culture’s eye

Tuesday night is always a very exciting night at my house. Not because we don't have class on Wednesday (because we all do), but because the best show on television is on. Normally, I watch very little TV, ranging from CNN in the morning to my strange obsession with VH1 shows.

Reefer is dangerous any way you smoke it

Just when you thought America's socialist neighbor, Canada, could not go any further into the deep intellectual abyss of liberalism, they distribute marijuana.

Frat posters pussy out and lose credibility

"Don't Be A Pussy! Be a Panther" read the flyer I saw posted in my residence hall, and later noticed all over campus. An advertisement for the fraternity Alpha Psi Chi, the flier also featured a heavily muscled depiction of the forementioned member of the feline family.

Clark has to make a case for his campaign, but his anouncement comes at such an early stage that voters should give his campaign some time and consider the three other candidates who actually have a good chance of winning the nomination: John Kerry, Howard Dean and Joseph Lieberman.

Dunk pricey cookies in rotten milk

I love the complimentary newspapers in Eickhoff. The College actually listened to one of my suggestions last year on those little comment cards. It seems that Sodexho actually opens the comment boxes. Unfortunately, just about everything else our dining service does seems wrong.

Hallelujah! It’s raining meteorologists: Wet and wild

Rain is teeming down in buckets and the wind is blowing leaves and debris all over the place. My first reaction? I have to get inside - I can't get my hair wet! While I might be a Bergen County priss who despises the minute that the humidity level rises to over 70 percent, there is something about all the Hurricane Isabel coverage that makes me want to be a storm-chasing reporter.
