Oregon Ducks have college basketball's ugliest...
First I’ll start by saying I am one of those people who really like the combination of football uniforms the University of Oregon wears, thanks in large part to alumnus and Nike co-founder Phil Knight. I know a lot of people who hate the uniforms and think it’s tacky, but I love them. In fact, studies have shown that in today’s world of college football recruiting, prospect want...
We are who we are. Love it or not.
I’ve never been a big Halloween fan. I’ve always felt that it’s just an overdone holiday and excuse to get more drunk than normal. It truly amazes me that in the United States, Halloween rivals only Christmas in terms of popularity. I guess the main part is, I’ve never understood it – the dressing up and all. Everyone says that it’s a chance to be someone – or something – else for a night. To...
Back from Utah, time to move there
Cris, Nick and I are currently driving on Interstate 80 across Wyoming. This place is a dump; can we turn back to the Beehive State or teleport forward to Fort Collins, please? I want to live in Utah. Salt Lake City to be exact. Sorry, but with graduation coming up in less than two months, the next place I live and work is a weight on my mind. I remember my first trip to Salt Lake City in...
Best quotes from Wednesday's conversation
My dear friend Ashley and I rocking some great one-liners on the Book of Face. Of course, we're probably the only two people who find these side-splitting hilarious, but oh well. Live in the moment.
Ashley: You're only seeing the bad parts. We're having a legit conversation about our lives.
Me: I'm going to be disappointed in you soon, aren't I?
Me: Permission to speak freely?
Ashley: Eeeeeh, probably not after my last comment.
Ashley: Try something new! I know I'm ready to make a change and do something new.
Me: Wait, are you telling me to try something new?
Ashley: Not in the relationship department, but maybe just something in life.
Me: I can't try anything new. My life is as boring as Angelina Jolie's ... just another day, just another kid.
Ashley: Let's rub AIDS all over his door handles.
Me: And Cancer!
Me: What do you want for your birthday?
Me: What kind of Disney Channel cartoon did you jump out of?
Ashley: Your friendship is priceless!
Salt Lake City, we're coming for ya ... on Friday
I feel like this weekend is going to be another great one as we’re making a road trip to see another Colorado State away game, this one in Salt Lake City, Utah. This will be my second ever trip to Salt Lake City and my third to the Beehive State (went to Provo last fall) – all of which were within the past three years and all to see either CSU football games against either Utah or Brigham...
We stole $210,000 from the U.S. military
It wasn’t something planned, in fact it was a spur of the moment decision, but today I was an accomplice in a six figure robbery from the United States military. It was just the four of us, my assistant editor (Joel), reporter (Cris), chief photographer (Nick) and me, down at the United States Air Force Academy covering the football game between Air Force and Colorado State. After Joel...
Squirrels fascinate me
What is it about squirrels that forces them to be so smart sometimes while total idiots the next? And I’m not talking about flying squirrels or ground squirrels, but just your run-of-the-mill squirrel with brown, bushy tails you can find anywhere in the United States, jumping from tree to tree. Walking to campus this afternoon, I saw a squirrel scurry from the sidewalk to a big tree next to the...
I had to share this hilarious trailer spoof poking fun at Ben Affleck’s new film, “The Town.” In a weird way, it almost feels spot-on about college life. My friend Alex directed me to it last night, it was created by her friend’s comedy group back in Boston. Please note that the video is property of ImprovAsylum.
Idaho / CSU - Keys to the game (guest piece) →
A guest piece I did for the University of Idaho Argonaut on Friday. Just thought I’d post a quick link.
More stong Collegian sports / design elements
I just want to take a few minutes and brag about the awesome job our editorial staff at the Collegian is doing, especially the tag team between the Sports and Design desks. As I mentioned yesterday with the photos I posted, Colorado State will wear special orange Ag Day uniforms on Saturday against Idaho. It was thought that they would be exactly like the green jerseys, just orange, but that...
Blogging from an airplane
This is not just a blog, nor a flightlog. This is a Flightblog. No seriously, I’m blogging this on an airplane, so why not call it a flightblog? Since I don’t feel like paying $3,000 for WiFi on the plane, I won’t be able to post this until I land – more accurately, until I drive an hour back from Denver International Airport to Fort Collins, but we’re still calling this a flightblog. I’m on the...
