I Saw the Sign

soccrrrWe’re going to Disney World! Actually we’re going to the Elite 8, but that’s pretty cool too. This Sunday, Georgetown Men’s Soccer beat Syracuse and earned themselves a spot in the Elite 8 of the NCAA tournament. 4E is excited because we’re die-hard soccer fans.

Today, the Hoyas will face UVA on Shaw Field at 1 p.m.

4E has put together a few game day sign suggestions for you all. We tried to provide a variety for Hoyas who know Josh Yaro’s name and for everyone else who isn’t as “sporty.”

Things to know: Calle Brown is UVA’s Senior Goalkeeper and Josh Yaro is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

What’s a Wahoo?

Thomas Jefferson wore Crocs.

Jack the Bulldog Is Killing the Insta Game

hi2jacksApparently Jack the Bulldog is a real Instagram expert. His most recent instas are praisewothy and 4E enjoys praising. So here they are:

Markel Barks! Jack shows his hops sporting a #Georgetown #Hoyas basketball jersey. Tune in for a new #Halloween costume each day this week!

We really enjoyed Jack’s Halloween costumes but his Instagram captions made them even better.

“Know thy enemy.” Jack disguises as a squirrel (and fools no one) for Day 2 of Halloweek! #HoyaHalloween A photo posted by Georgetown’s Jack the Bulldog (@gujackbulldog) on

So witty. No wonder he got into Georgetown.

And the resulting recording is pretty cool too. Hear Jack spit hot fire:

We also love Jack because he addressed Kim Kardashian’s scandal-inducing gluteus maximus via Instagram. #breaktheinternet

“Am I doing this right?”

Tips for Tipoff: How To Meet Your Hoya Basketball Needs

Basketball SeasonThe start of the new semester brings with it the end of the NFL regular season, meaning no more Sundays full of football. Thankfully, Georgetown basketball is in full swing, and if you haven’t been keeping up, now is the time. We’re only 15 games into the season (at 11-4), and the second half of the season is upon us. Here are some tips to help you keep up with all your Hoya basketball needs:

Go out to the games! The best thing you can do is buy a ticket, get a group of friends, head down to Verizon Center and cheer the Hoyas on to victory!

Watch the games Whether it’s in Epicurean, in your common room or on a somewhat-sketchy streaming site*, it’s super easy to watch Georgetown basketball whenever it’s on.

Know how the Hoyas’ season is going Inevitably, you won’t be able to watch every game. ESPN does an excellent job of providing up-to-date scores and stats for college basketball, so bookmark and periodically check its page. Or head over to The Hoya for all our latest coverage.

Pray that we make it further in the NCAA Tournament than before That loss to FGCU (we’re still asking the question: who?) last year was tragic and frankly a little embarrassing. Let’s hope we can have a strong end to the season and make it to a semifinal this year!

Now that second semester is upon us, be sure to gather up some friends, pop on a “We Are Georgetown” shirt and go out to support your fellow Hoyas!

*4E does not condone illegally streaming TV channels, though we admire Hoyas who stop at nothing to watch their beloved ballers.

Traditions Day: All That is Georgetown

Is there a better way to begin Homecoming celebrations than rejoicing in our many traditions? Yes, that was a rhetorical question. This Friday (today!) marks Traditions Day! In celebrating school spirit, Traditions Day reinforces the specific traditions of Georgetown that essentially make us “bleed Hoya blue.”

As you prepare for the crowds and the cheering and the inevitable fun that follows Homecoming weekend, plan to include today in your festivities! If you’re a freshman, you’ll especially want to take part in the traditions that will soon become apart of your life and community here at the Hilltop!

So what exactly is going on?

GUGS will be flipping burgers alongside local restaurants throughout Copley lawn and Red Square around noon. Don’t forget about Wingo’s Wing Eating Contest! Sounds like happiness on a silver platter to me. While ensuring the satisfaction of your stomach, don’t forget to stop by Healy Circle and poke fun at community members agonizing in the dunk tank, featuring our own Blog Editor Michelle Cassidy, GUSA President Clara Gustafson and other seniors.

From a grueling Tug of War match and Powderpuff football to listening to your favorite a cappella groups and watching in anticipation as the Traditions Day Cup is awarded to one of our classes; Friday will be a day of fun, spirit, and exposure to all that is Georgetown!

So what do I take from this?

Besides the entertainment, food, and games, Traditions Day provokes thought about who you are and what you’ll become as you join (if you’re new) or progress throughout the Georgetown community. Think about all these little quirks, all these little building blocks that define Georgetown. Do they define you? Are they components your perception of Georgetown? Will you smile in reminiscence twenty years from now as a distinguished alumnus when thinking about these specific traditions? I guess the only way to find out is to simply revel in it and enjoy the ride! Hoya Saxa!
