No doubt that most of you are drained from all the midterms and papers you’ve been having to get through. But, you have no excuses now because of the three day weekend (thank you, Christopher Columbus). It’s likely that you missed a lot of the week’s going ons because of the workload (or, for the lucky few, relaxation), so here’s what went down this weekend:
- The Presidential Debate was this past Wednesday and the general consensus among political commentators is that Governor Mitt Romney won. Even those that think that he didn’t win the debate admit that he surprised everyone by avoiding any gaffes and articulating some clear points. Look forward to the Vice Presidential debate on October 11.
- The NBA released a video that explains what a “flop” is. In case you haven’t heard, the league is taking steps to stop players from exaggerating contact in order to draw calls. There’s some disagreement over how effective this program will be, but something needs to be done and this is a step in the right direction for most basketball enthusiasts.
- Stop hatin’ on Leo’s! They’ve apparently corrected their health-code violations that have been causing quite a stir on campus. You can take someone else’s burger order without worrying about what else is in it now.
- The baseball post-season is here! The Nationals will be taking on the Cardinals at tomorrow at 4:37 p.m. in St. Louis and at 1:07 p.m. Wednesday in D.C. — leggo Nats!
