Going Stagg

Take a look at my Daily Photo

another christmas hint

Week 11:

Rowan spent week 11 taking a top-seed bye and waiting to find out their opponent in the second round of the Stagg Bowl XXXII playoffs. By beating Curry College, Hobart College moved on to face Rowan. This Saturday the Statesmen make the trip from Geneva, NY to Glassboro, NJ to take on the fourth-seed Profs.

Hobart established the first Men's Studies minor in the US, "an intellectually rigorous and coherent explanation of men’s lives." They also offer a major in Woman's Studies, the goal of which is to "give students the broadest possible context in which to realize and interpret the multidimensional roles of women in societies around the world." I won't go into how unfair it is that Men's Studies is a minor and Woman's Studies is a major, but it seems to me that the point of the Woman's program is to study women's accomplishments through time while the Men's program just hopes to figure out what the hell makes guys act the way they do.

The march toward the NJ Parochial 3 championship by my high school alma mater, Holy Cross High, was ended by Pope John XXIII last Saturday, 34-16. Tonight in Moorestown the Lancers take on the Quakers of Moorestown High. In addition to winning in front of a Thanksgiving weekend full house, Holy Cross (#8) has a chance to overtake Moorestown (#6) in the Inquirer's South Jersey Football Top 10. It's not much, but it's the only thing they have left to fight for.

Mark, I just read an article about Holy Cross. It reports that although the enrollment is at the lowest in the history of the school it believes that the enrollment will increase next year. I used to see Mr. Egan in the store at least once a week but he started going to Shop Rite so now I only see him every once in a while. He's always a nice guy. Ann

You know, when I was at ol' St. Pete's we were the "Spirits" but they wanted a tougher nickname. You know your nickname is wussy when "Saints" is considered tough.

Could have been worse and been called "The Peters"
