AND WE’RE BACK!!!!. I’m not going to beat around the bush here. If you like something I write… praise me for it. If you don’t like something I write, brush it off because I’m more than likely joking. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show. And for you seniors: here is my clichéd enjoy your last semester before it’s over.
Cheer of the Week: Syracuse Basketball
Wow. I’m pretty sure that’s the only word that can describe how the majority of ‘Cuse fans felt after last Saturday’s epic overtime thriller against Duke.
I’m not even a huge Orange basketball fan but if there’s one thing I love, it’s college basketball. That game exceeded my expectations by a long shot. If you had tickets to that game, frame it. Put it on display. Do something to commemorate that you were there and witnessed not only ACC history, but college basketball history.
As for Duke Guard Rasheed Sulaimon – nice three to send the game to OT, got to give credit when credit is due.
Jeer of the Week: Arctic Tundra
Now four years ago when I sent my application to Le Moyne, I knew what I was getting into. I’ve lived in New England my whole life and would say I’ve adjusted to the cold weather quite nicely. But this is ridiculous.
When I wake up in the morning and see -11 on my phone’s weather app, that upsets me. Not only do I have to walk to class, but I have to dress up in layers, cover every part of my body, then walk into a classroom that’s usually a normally comfortable 70 degrees… but feels like a sauna. When 34 degrees feels like the middle of spring, you know something is wrong.
I still love the cold, I’ll take it over 100 degrees in July any day of the week, but this whole polar vortex nonsense has to stop.
Cheer to the Super Bowl
Now at the time I was writing this, the game had not been played; and so I cannot comment on the outcome. Having said that, the Patriots aren’t playing so I don’t care who wins.
I love football enough to enjoy the game even though my team isn’t in it. I’m sure the fans of the other 29 teams feel the same way. Getting everyone together to enjoy some good food and watch some of the funniest commercials of the year makes this Sunday one of the best of the year(not counting Sunday at the Masters – foreshadowing of future cheers). Just for fun I’m going to predict the game in this article and we shall see if I’m remotely close. No cheating I promise. Broncos 24 Seattle 17. But with the best offense in the league going the best defense, the real winner in this game is the NFL and its fans.
P.S. If I ever had a chance to talk to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, I would ask him what the hell was he thinking playing a Super Bowl in an outdoor cold weather environment?
Jeers to Flappy Bird
Somewhere, some CEO of .Gears company in Vietnam (I Googled it) is laughing hysterically at the money he is making for the simplest of concepts. And the world is fueling the fire…
Phones everywhere are downloading a game where you take a bird, tap the screen, and make fly through tiny little holes in pipes in order to score big. What the game doesn’t tell you is how much profanity is involved. Not in the game itself, but from the people playing it. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to chuck my phone across the room in anger. That’s just the way it is. And I’m sure you agree.
I’m 3 days flappy bird free, but not after setting a personal best of 54. So if you have a higher score or have beaten my best, keep it to yourself because I will try to top you.
