Super Mash Bros.-"Scientifically Proven To Get That Booty Movin!"

By: Lady Meow

If you love mash up of different songs then these Gurus from L.A. are for you. They are similar to Girl Talk don't get me wrong, however Girl Talk takes samples of songs and mashes them into an original song. Whereas Super Mash Bros. take about no more than 10 songs into one track and absolutely KILL it. These guys make some original songs sound a lot better. They definitely achieved easy listenability, make their listeners crave more, and make you only wanna have a good time partying. Needless to say, I would love to see these guys at UNH (Whad up SCOPE?).

They have two albums:

1. Fuck Bitches, Get Euros (download)
This album ranges from the Vengaboys layering over Soulja Boy to Eminem layering over MGMT's "Kids". Below, I posted a few of my favorites.

2. All About The Scrillions (download)
This is personally, my favorite album. My favorite track is "Livin The Dream (I'm On A Float)". The tracks on the this album have everything from Sum 41, Coldplay, Jimmy Eat World to Kanye West, Twista, Ludacris, Ying-Yang Twins to Katy Perry, Spice Girls, and DJ Sammy. ETC.

After listening to this amazingness, now you may think, whom do I like better? Girl Talk or Super Mash. Bros. Although very different styles of mashups I find Super Mash Bros. are an easy listen when pre-gaming/partying. Everyone in the room can definitely relate to a song, especially when it sticks around and not cut off. I hope you enjoy getting smashed (gotta love puns) to these albums as much as I did.

Health Services is clinically insane

A reader left a link to the following video in the comment section, and I am forever thankful. That is something which I truly appreciate, a reader stepping up and making a post happen. I have seen this video on the related videos tab on YouTube before, but I had never bothered to watch it. Going by those  crazy alcohol stats that make no sense I always had a feeling that there was something strange about Health Services on campus, and this video has backed up that feeling. Enjoy:

I was going to give a little film critique of this, seeing as I aced high school film as lit, but I think it speaks for itself. These people are clearly too happy and might be dipping into the pharmacy drug supply.

In all seriousness, we do have a great Health Service department (I've never been there, but I know a few people who got some great help from them). They offer a lot that not many other schools do, but still, this video was ridiculous.

Stay classy, not UMassy

I have big news. If you don't care about the layout changes then scroll down to where I write "BIG NEWS." You may have noticed the new layout for the blog. If you didn't notice you might have some serious brain function issues. Anyways this is kind of like the third major layout change for the site and I was hoping for some feedback. I like that the main text columns are wider so it makes it easier to fit pictures and embedded videos. I also feel that the widgets on the right side are better organized. I may tweak with some of the color patterns but I think this layout will be here to stay. The main reason I changed it was because blogger released a bunch of new designs and I thought it would give the site a new fresh look heading into next semester. If you want to get nostalgic for a moment these are the two older layouts. There were several other small changes between these, but these are the two main stages before what you see now. I think we can agree it has definitely improved since we debuted. (These are the only screenshots I had so I apologize for them being so small.)

Gotta love the original banner, designed with Microsoft Paint on my old roommate's laptop because my Mac didn't have any paint or drawing programs.

The second major layout (this was really actually like 2.5 or 3) featured a new banner first emailed to me by then TNH executive editor Cam Kittle when I first started contributing to the paper. The "Stay classy, not UMassy" line was added a short time later from another blog reader. That banner has remained almost untouched (other than a brief change of the "Stay classy not UMassy" for about a week) and has only been changed since by enlarging it.

So I know not as many people read this over the summer but let me know what you think. I know the banner is slightly pixilated now that it is bigger, but I think it actually looks better that way then it being to short to be centered.

Lastly and most importantly I also have some **BIG NEWS** I am currently coming to terms with the blog's first official partnership. I'm not giving out too many details until their widget is added, but I am very excited about it. It should be up sometime very soon, possibly even later today. Oh, just got another email about it. Might happen right now. Let's see...

Stay classy, not UMassy.

Thank The Heavens For This Guy

By: Lady Meow

I absolutely love this kid. I think many of you can see why. He talking about the song "Airplanes" by B.o.B. featuring Haley Williams of Paramore. Needless to say, I think we can all relate on some level.

"What happens if the airplane is a fucking boeing?"

End of Summer Boredom? Read a Book

By: Geoff

“Liberty cannot be preserved without general knowledge among the people.”- John Adams

I recently did something that I used to do fairly often, but hadn’t done in awhile. Last Friday, it was my day off from work, and I didn’t have anything to do. To curb my boredom I went to Barnes and Noble and spent over two hours there. I would find a book that interested me and would sit down and read it for a bit. Then, I would put it back and find a book about something completely different. But that’s not to say that I didn’t intend to buy anything and give it a thorough read.

On the suggestion of a friend, I bought a book called The 5000 Year Leap: A Miracle That Changed the World by Cleon Skousen. The miracle that the title refers to is none other than the Constitution of the United States of America. In case anyone forgot that’s the document that the Founders of our country drafted at the Constitutional Convention of 1787, which outlines how the Republic should function.

I suggest that every American reads this extraordinary book. It should be required reading in every middle or high school in the nation because I don’t know about you, but I was never comprehensibly taught the Constitution in my schooling. And that’s a serious problem, as Adams’ quote suggests. How can anyone be a proper citizen of a country and not understand the basic principles on which it was founded?

Skousen highlights the 28 Principles of Freedom set forth by the brilliant Founding Fathers through mostly their own words. The book is just over 300 pages, but it reads very quickly. The most striking information in the entire book is the countless warnings the Founders put forth in their speeches and writings about what could happen to the country if it strays from their principles. For example, Thomas Jefferson warned about how dangerous it is for a private, centralized banking institution to control all of the country’s currency: "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”

Jefferson’s warning practically describes the Federal Reserve System that has been the central banking institution in the U.S. since 1913, and it has destroyed our monetary system. The book is filled with insights such as this. In fact, reading it has had such an impact on me that I’ve changed my political views. Most people seem to think that the Constitution is outdated, but after reading this book it is clear to me it is the only way for our country to properly survive.

So if boredom hits you hard while waiting to return to our beautiful campus, I suggest you give The 5000 Year Leap a chance. Who knows, maybe you’ll even impress some of your professors this fall.

38 Days 'til move-in weekend!

Before we know it, we will be knee deep in essays, exam weeks, early classes and spending hour after hour in the library and I can't wait. Because that also means we will be back at UNH where the alcohol flows like Niagara Falls and the women flock like gallimimuses being chased by a T-Rex. I believe freshman move in on Saturday the 28th of August while upperclassman move in on the following Sunday. Gables and Woodsides residents have the option for either day, but I know I will be at the Gables bright and early Saturday morning. Like I said, I can't wait. I've kept busy this summer with work and trying to grow a beard and other stuff and hopefully I'll only be more busy for the next month and ten days so it will only go buy faster. I'm starting off the second half (not really sure if it is the second half, but that's what I'm calling it) by heading up to Wrangeley, Maine tomorrow morning and into the weekend.

Before you know it, it will be time for Project August! What's Project August you ask? It is an annual (my last name) Brother's tradition in which we do as many fun things as possible during the month of August as a way to end the summer with a blast. I have three older brothers and in the past we have gone up to Bar Harbor, had barn parties and other shenanigans usually involving whiskey and fire. I hope you all enjoy your August and are as excited as me to get back to UNH.

If you're wondering what my summer has been like this video of Zach Galifianakis pretty much sums it up: tractors and being gangster. 

Stay classy, not UMassy.

Lady Meow's YouTube Picks of the Week

By: Lady Meow

I know it's not near the end of the week, but I have read 3 books in the past week and it's about time I chill out. So I sat down and delve into the internet gossip websites and watched. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Last week the ESPY Awards aired, I found the Vuvuzela parody with Will Ferrel was pretty decent, a little dragged on, but otherwise well thought out. Also, if you didn't know Seth Meyers, the host of the ESPY awards and also a premier writer for Saturday Nght Live and is the Weekend Update anchor. Meyers is from Bedford, NH and graduated from dirty West High School in Manchester.

How bored was this guy when he decided to train his roommates dog to respond to Child Porn to go for a walk? I found this pretty good because of the simplicity of it all and the dog is absolutely adorable. Although, the man in the vid could pass for pedo roommate. Who knows.

Really? What is this world coming to? Also, pretty sure Caroline is a 7 year old boy. I wanna see him in 10 years....

And last of course is Twilight for Bros. I think you'll understand is much better now.

Concert Review: Old Crow Medicine Show

Sunday night I went to the Old Crow Medicine Show concert at the Casino Ballroom in Hampton and it was a blast. You may not like "country" but they are not redneck/right-winged/they took our jobs! country. It's actually more like "if you're not a right winger we'll all have a humdinger!"

The band, a 6 piece all-string folk-rock group out of Nashville, basically opened for themselves playing for about 45 minutes, then took a 15 minute break, came back out for another hour and a half and then played a three song encore. The encore included a terrific version of Neil Young's "Cowgirl in the Sand" which was quite a treat. During their "opening" set they played a few covers and mostly stuff off their older albums including "I Hear them All" "Minglewood Blues" and "James River Blues" and also played a couple newer songs like the crowd favorite "Humdinger."

Old Crow played more of their hits during their main set, including the crowd pleaser and one of my personal favorites "Alabama High Test." (below) It was great to see the crowd singing along with the lyrics to that one. "Other songs the band played included "Next Go 'Round" "Caroline" "Down Home Girl" "CC Rider" "Highway Halo" "Mary's Kitchen" and many others I can't think of or don't know the name of.

Toward the end of the set the band finally played their biggest hit "Wagon Wheel" and all 2,000+ in attendance joined in on the lyrics. Especially the lines "running from the cold up in New England"and  "had a nice long toke!" With every verse the crowd got louder and it was by far the best sing-along I've ever been apart of. They followed up "Wagon Wheel" with their final song of the set with the cocaine themed "Tell it to Me" (below) and each band member took a small solo as they introduced one another. As the band left the stage the entire crowd was already calling (more like stamping and screaming) for an encore.

The band reappeared and played "Cowgirl in the Sand" which got a great reaction from the audience. They played two other songs including "Fall on My Knees."

In sum, Old Crow Medicine Show was one goddamn hell-of-a show! They are very talented musicians and writers and they really know how to perform live. I will definitely see them when they come around again.

Calling Chris Hansen

So I just got home from a nice family dinner at the local Applebee's and I open up my twitter account to see a link to a WMUR article about a dude who was caught watching and downloading child pornography at UNH's Dimond Library. (PS Do you notice how in that article "Vellucci" isn't spelt "Zellucci?" Yeah, you're welcome WMUR editors. That got corrected via my tweet. No biggie. Maybe I am cut out for a career in this business.) Anyways, if you're too lazy to read the article some random 67 year-old guy was caught straight peeding-out at Dimond. He is a previously convicted sex offender (which is probably why he literally shit himself when police asked for his ID) and is not connected with UNH.This got me to thinking. Child pornography is terrible, we should really do something about this. Maybe if we gather a bunch of porn and have a giant bonfire... Oh, right....

Anyways, the real part of that article that caught my eye was this little tidbit:
Dimond Library is a public library, and staff members said there are no filters on any computers because open access to all information is considered vitally important to the mission of research and education. Users can look at legal pornography on the library's computers, which can trigger complaints, staffers said."We tend to ask the person who complains about it to move to a different computer or area of the library," Vellucci said.
Users can look at legal pornography on the library's computers. I had no idea that it was okay to watch porn at the library, not that I would or anything. Just out of curiosity, what class enables legal pornography to be educational? Because I may have to enroll in "Making Babies" asap. And I love how the librarians just ask the complainer to move. Imagine trying to study for Organic Chem and the person next to you is taking notes while watching hardcore (and legal of course) pornography. I don't care who you are, but that would be a slight distraction to anyone. I understand that for some sociology or psych course or something there could be a paper on pornography, but I think that might be some research best saved for the privacy of your own room. With the shades down. And the door locked. And headphones. It is nice that the library allows that if it really is educational, but it would be a little awkward to say the least. I mean who would want to do that research in the common computer section of the library anyways?

Also, pedophiles suck.

Stay classy, not UMassy.

Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Hello all,

My name is Geoff, and I’m new to this here blog. I would like to start by thanking the New Hampshirite for inviting me to become a writer for the University of Nonsensical Happenings. I’ve been a fan of the blog for some time now, and I’m honored to have the opportunity to write for it. My hope is to entertain as many of you as possible, and to encourage you to comment and become involved in our discussions.

Since I’ve chosen to use my real name, let’s get to know each other, shall we? I’ll be a senior (oh shit!) in the fall. I’m an English/Journalism major with minors in political science and cinema studies. I’m a News Editor for The New Hampshire, which I encourage you all to read and enjoy regularly.

But I thought that instead of sharing the usual information that people give when introducing themselves, I would write you a list of unique (and hopefully interesting) facts about myself. All of the following is true:

- I hail from the small and forgettable town of Burrillville, R.I. We don’t have much, but we do have two Dunkin Donuts.
- My fifth grade teacher told my mother and me at a parent/teacher conference that he thought I should consider pursuing journalism in the future. From that moment on, I wanted to be a journalist.
- In a Little League baseball game, I fouled a ball off of my thumb. On the next pitch, I fouled the ball off of my thumb again and split it open. The result was six stitches. I’m such a badass.
- I played hockey for 10 years. When I was 13, my junior hockey team made it to the state championship to play an undefeated team. Less than ten minutes into the game, I was thrown out for (unintentionally) hitting from behind. We won 2-1. It still hurts me to think about the fact that I didn’t play a part in the win.
- Just days after my eighteenth birthday, my car was hit by a tractor trailer truck in the parking lot where I work. The driver was 70 years old. He fled the scene. My car was totaled.
- I went to a party at a random apartment my freshman year. At one point in the night, I had to urinate, but my friend was busy vomiting in the bathroom. So I went outside in a t-shirt. It was January. I got locked out. In my drunken stupor, I thought I could figure out the combination to the lock before I froze to death. So I typed 1, 2, 3, 4, and the door opened.
- Three of my biggest pet peeves are loud gum chewers, people who walk slowly and the fact that Green Day is popular.

Well, there you have it. If you feel like it, write a unique (and true) fact about yourself in the comment section. Come on, it could be fun.

In his own LeBrozone

Okay, I usually don't write about anything that isn't UNH or college related, but I have some thoughts on Lebron James and I figured why not... even though roughly 52.4 million bloggers/journalists/experts have already said just about everything there is to say about this egomaniac. Lebron must be loving this. This is exactly what he wanted, everyone is talking about him. Lebron lives in his own ozone... the Lebrozone. Original? Probably not, but I've been working outside and my brain is more fried than usual.

Two days ago, there was no way I thought I would be watching tonight, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that it really could be the most insane hour of television ever. There is noway I can miss it. No other athlete would ever pull this off, and quite frankly, would any of them want to? Not TO. Not Ochocinco. Not Jeter. Not Brady. Not Kobe. I don't even think A-Rod would and he posed for a magazine kissing his own reflection in a mirror.

Tonight very well could ruin my generation's most celebrated athlete. An athlete who was noticed in middle school, praised in high school, who had all the attention he could ask for... and then he asked for more. He was labeled the next Jordan and then the first Lebron, and if he ruins this I want a front row seat. If he picks any team other than Cleveland his legacy will never be at the level of Jordan, Bird or Magic... it won't even be at Kobe's level.

This special could be so epic, I am giddy like a child for Christmas morning. We get to witness a grown man, voluntarily putting himself above: not just his teammates, not just his sport, but the entire sports world. Tonight Lebron says "look at me! Look at me! Watch me talk. Watch me dunk. Watch me pick who is going to pay me  millions dollars over the next decade." It's like a little kid trying to get his mommy's attention who is in a conversation. "Mom, hey mom, look at me, mom. Are you watching? Mom? Mom! Mommy look at me! Wahhhhh!" You are not special, you are a human like everyone else.  Who else gets to pick who will pay them millions of dollars and make a game out of it... for a game?

Okay, now as a college student who watches ESPN every morning I feel qualified to share my thoughts on the different scenarios.

Cleveland: The hometown boy remains loyal. Lebron decides that (for the best of his legacy) he will return to Cleveland to (try to) win them a championship. If he were to hold this press conference and not go back to the Cav's he will become more hated than just about any athlete ever... except for the city he chooses. If he leaves Cleveland I might actually feel bad for that dump hole of a city... there would be so many riots...

Chicago: His ego thinks he could one-up Jordan in Jordan's city. Lebron already announced he wouldn't wear #23 next year, was this foreshadowing a move to Chi town? With a young and talented point guard, a great rebounding and defensive big man with a solid supporting cast this is probably the easiest and quickest route for Lebron to get a ring.

New York: The biggest player in the biggest city. Move over A-Rod there is a new douche in town. With Lebron and Stoudemire, the Knicks might actually win a game or two.

New Jersey: I would love to see Lebron go to the Nets and it might actually be the one scenario where I could possibly root for him. Going to a terrible team, about to move to Brooklyn with the craziest owner ever. Oh man, it would be fun to watch. When that crazy Russian bastard Mikhail Prokhorov bought the Nets they instantly became one of my favorite teams. The guy is a nut and will hopefully do great things for the league. Side Note: Can I root for a team just because their owner is crazy? I can't name more than a few current Nets and I used to hate them with a passion...

Miami: All the experts have this as the most likely scenario. Joining Wade and Bosh this would be a total cop out, basically admitting that he couldn't win a championship on his own... But the Heat wouldn't be able to afford a supporting cast and without a sharp-shooter and a solid center this could turn into a great disappointment. But alas, free agency is far from over, trades can be made and the season isn't even close to starting. Anything could happen.

When all is said and done, I really don't care where Lebron ends up. I just know that I will have another team to root against. Except maybe the Nets, but I don't see him going there. The NBA is my least favorite of the four major sports, but I really just think this whole ordeal is insane.

I think I want to watch because I will get to see a major letdown/meltdown/mindfuck that has been unmatched for any sport that is in the offseason. In my mind it is either Cleveland or somewhere else. It won't matter where. This is sports history, and I want to see it crumble.  Sports bars in the different cities are holding viewing parties, those that are let out to dry will riot. People will cry. It will be the great American sports tragedy. And I can't wait to see it unravel.

How to Handle UNH Parking 'Authority'

By: Lady Meow

This letter was sent into the Office of Parking Clerk (OPC). This is a GREAT example on how to handle that parking ticket you didn't deserve from the UNH parking authority or whatever kind of authority they have.

Basically, my friend went down to Boston to visit a friend. She paid a 2 hour parking meter and came back with 16 minutes left and found a ticket on her car. Needless to say she was quite 'bullshit'. I mean who wouldn't be? Things like this have occured around us here at UNH. She shortly sent in a letter and the whole fine was appealed along with an apology from the OPC office. Word.

*Name has been changed

June 23, 2009

To whom it may concern:

My name is *Rachel Babcock and I recently was in the city of Boston visiting a friend. I parked my car at a metered spot on Commonwealth Avenue and upon my return I found a parking violation on my windshield. Violation # 590379381 was given to me at approximately 1:55:06 pm on the day of June 9th 2009. The violation was given to me for an expired meter, however as seen by the pictures I have enclosed I had 16 minutes remaining on my meter. I am confused as to why, with time to spare, I was given this violation. I do not appreciate being exploited as a tourist of your city, by simply being in Boston I am contributing to your economy and am disgusted that you feel the need to rob me of money that is clearly undeserved. This was not my first time in Boston and I am not new to how meters work. I am allotted two hours to park in a designated spot and if my time expires then, and only then should I be given a ticket. I was clearly taken advantage of for whatever reason, whether it is because I have Maine plates or because the officer thought I wouldn’t make it back before my meter ran out. Whatever the reason said officer felt the need to ticket me before the meter expired is surely unjust. Simply chalking it up to be a mistake is an evasion and your indiscretion shouldn’t become my liability.

I am not amused by what happened and am irritated with the trouble I had to go through in order to get the pictures off of my phone in order to mail them with this appeal. The city of Boston should be ashamed of such blatant exploitation and abuse of power. This issue has greatly discouraged me from making trips into the city of Boston. I am hoping never to have to write a letter of appeal such as this one in which I express my dissatisfaction with the tact of your parking officers.

-*Rachel Babcock 

"I'm not new on how meters work", this is just simply fabulous. My friend is great.  This goes to show that a simple letter can have common offenses revoked. If you have a letter that would like to be posted on some bullshit call on some sort of authority around UNH email me at and we can certainly post it.
Hope summer is great!

An Open Letter to SCOPE

 I hope this letter finds you in good health. The other day SCOPE's facebook status asked for comedian suggestions. Right away several people requested Bob Marley. If that happened, I would probably blow my fucking brains out. I mean, he's been to UNH twice recently and is nowhere near the status of a homecoming comedian. However, as much as you may want to get a huge comedian it might be better to go lean towards the cheap side so SCOPE can land better music acts in the Spring. (Bottom line: Just about any comedian but Bob Marley.)

When all is said and done, more people will complain about a mediocre musician than a mediocre comedian. If SCOPE wants to please the most students, try to save some money on the homecoming comedian so more money can be spent on the spring shows.

Lets face it, SCOPE has taken a lot of heat in the past. No matter what happens next year, they will be praised and cursed out at the same time for all of their shows. It should be understood, especially after last year, that one musician cannot please the entire student body. The best way for SCOPE to please the biggest cross-section of students (this is not necessarily my preference, but what is probably better for the student body) is to book two spring shows. Have Spring Climax be a hip-hop artist in the Whit. This will sellout no matter who it is. For the other show, go for a band in the Field House. A true rock band would be awesome and would please the students who don't favor hip-hop. Remember, last year SCOPE had Bo Burnham, Akon, MGMT and Girl Talk. That is great variety. Comedy, hip-hop, pop/prog-rock, and hip-hop/dance. But, in order to make that potential "rock" show even better would be to have a solid opener. Last year MGMT was very good, but their opener was weak.

I know this is all just speculation, and it is easier said than done, but this is just a thought.

In that distant past SCOPE, MUSO and even WUNH would sometimes collaborate on the same show. All that I'm saying, is give peace a chance. Why does SCOPE and MUSO have to have this conflicting relationship? We are all UNH students, why can't we be friends?  What if SCOPE were to get a bigger band for a second show and MUSO was responsible for the opener? (I know MUSO is the Memorial Union Student Org, so I'm not sure if they're restricted to the MUB... maybe they could bend the 'rules'). This would help save SCOPE money and let MUSO use their money in a way to benefit more students. Of course that would take some ego swallowing, but it could help MUSO gain more respect, which they deserve. UNH could really have a true spring climax, if only these organizations would put all the bullshit aside and communicate with one another. If MUSO can't leave the MUB maybe they could have their big spring show the same weekend as SCOPE's climax. Just a thought. We are all adults, or at least age-wise we are, so act like it. I know there are a lot of "what ifs" in there, but just think of the possibilities.

Anyways, continue to enjoy your summer. 
Stay classy, not UMassy.

Weighing My Options and Summer Thoughts

I've been doing a lot of blog related thinking and planning recently and I have realized that there are quite a few different directions to take the blog in. Over the past year I added a few other contributors and I want to know how the readers felt about that. Did you enjoy having more contributors? Of course Corey graduated so he won't be writing here, but I have been thinking of adding another writer or two. I have a few people in mind, one of whom has already expressed interest. What do you think? Have you, the readers, enjoyed having other contributors? Would readers like to see more contributors or should I fire them all? (Just kidding!)

I feel that the other writers only add to the blog since I maintained my normal blogging status. I know the decision is mine and I started this blog for my own fun, but it has become more than that. It has become more about the readers and the UNH student community. More writers does mean more work for me, more people to keep track of, but it also means more content and more variety. I am willing to take on a more managerial responsibility, on top of my writing, for the good of the blog if that is what the readers want. Seriously, what do you think? Help me, help you! Should I look into expansion, or keep the blog where it's at?

The final decision is mine, and mine alone, but I would appreciate your input.

Either way, I am very excited for the fall semester to start. I mean, how that fuck is it only July? There are so many unanswered questions I have waiting to be solved, like: Will the dining halls have salt shakers? Will dining hire a hit-man to take me out? Who will SCOPE get for a homecoming comedian and other shows? (Speaking of SCOPE, I have an entire post for/about them that will be up in another few days, so check back for that...)  What will President Huddleston tweet next? Will I get reported to the conduct office again? Will people keep reading the blog? Will I finally taste a beer? (I can't even type that with a straight face.) When will the oil leak be plugged? (Dear BP, FUCK YOU!) How will our athletic teams fair? Who will step up to replace Bobby Butler? (My money is on Stevie Moses and Greg Burke.) What shenanigans will UMass and Maine get into so I can mock them?

Ah, so many questions, so many questions...  I am excited and I hope you are too. Less than two more months, we can do this. Believe.

Stay classy, not UMassy.
