Deaf, Dumb and Third Eye Blind

Well, at least no one shot a gun at a toilet this time. Unfortunately, that was one of the few positives of the Spring Kick-Off Concert on Saturday night. I had had high expectations ever since Georgetown Program Board released the band lineup a few weeks ago. Like many of[Read More…]

NCAA Neurosis

I’d like to begin this column with an apology on behalf of my hometown of Providence, R.I. It’s not as if we need any more bad press – although Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D) might argue that bad press is better than no press. We’re now known as the place where[Read More…]

The Sixth Man: Fan Performance Crucial to On-Court Success

It doesn’t help when your team misses eight free throws or when it shoots a miserable 38.5 percent from the field. It doesn’t help when it takes bad shots or commits untimely fouls. None of those things make it easy to win a game, but they aren’t the reason we[Read More…]

Rats Overstaying Their Welcome

Three things in life are unavoidable: death, taxes and rats. As anyone who has walked back from Lauinger Library late at night can testify, rats have no problem infesting our Hilltop. I’m not talking about FBI informants (though I’m sure we have had a fair share of those), but a[Read More…]

Georgetown Magic, Across the Pond

I often joke with my friends back home that I go to Hogwarts. The humor is usually lost on them, but the fact is, this place has some magic about it. As much as I have griped about its drawbacks, I have also been the recipient of some of its[Read More…]
