To say that I’ve been on some bad teams in my life is an understatement. Aside from an unprecedented run of three straight undefeated seasons in elementary school rec soccer, my lifetime winning percentage in sports is probably somewhere around .350. When I got to college, I thought I’d make friends with kids who are great at sports. I would taste intramural glory, and my cup would runneth over with the spoils of victory. Instead, I joined the paper, Pep Band, and the intramural part … let’s just say has gone in a different direction.
The Super Bowl is the biggest televised game of the year and companies dish out millions just for a thirty-second advertisement. Now I’m not sure how these numbers are calculated. Whether they were able to count all the people watching the game on TVs or if the number is just based on the number of TVs turned on to NBC. But regardless, that’s a lot of people to enlighten with your company’s product or service.
It’s rare that the paper ventures into the world of sports. And by rare, I mean almost never. But as a dedicated fan of Fordham basketball who also has access to a printing press, it is my constitutional duty to put everyone on blast for the apathy that surrounds the basketball teams at this school.
Another great Wrestlemania goes by…
