The Red Sox and Mets have little in common except one thing -- an intense hatred of the Yankees. That's why we don't blame NYU students for being angry about having to attend their graduation at Yankee Stadium while the usual location, Washington Square Park, is being renovated.
Lingerie and Poetry and FSU
If you aren't a poety fan, this story will make you one. A student group at Florida State, the home to some of our nation's finest co-eds, put on a "Language of Lingerie" poetry show about, well, you guessed it. Shockingly, seems the gig was a hit!
Heir Jordan
In case you didn't know, Michael Jordan's son, Jeffrey, is currently averaging less than a point per game as a freshman on the Illinois basketball squad. The Daily Illini has a nice profile of Jordan who is anything but an average freshman.
Catching Up with The Tour Guy
In case you're new to SIOC, we have our very own director/producer/movie star who spent his Saturdays last fall traveling to different campuses and reporting on the tailgate scene. We call him The College Football Tour Guy. We're happy to report that CFTG is spreading his wings beyond football and will be in Durham this weekend for the Duke-UNC game. We should have the video up on Tuesday.
