Macalester football team hungry for wins, food:
Although their first game is seven months away, the members of Macalesterƒ?TMs oft-maligned football team have their sights firmly set on turning the program around, and a delicious hamburger sizzling on the grill. After a team-building weekend trip to White Castle, the team has been working out together and building camaraderie in the gym and cafeteria almost every day. ƒ?oeWeƒ?TMre very excited by our new coach and chicken breasts,ƒ?? said sophomore linebacker Taylor Clifton, lifting a delicious piece of pepperoni pizza to his mouth. ƒ?oeI just hope we donƒ?TMt get disappointed if results arenƒ?TMt immediate, like when the girl at Taco Bell got our order wrong. But then she delivered us our chalupas and burritos, and thatƒ?TMs exactly what weƒ?TMll have to do come next season.ƒ??Macalester softball team announces use of ghost-runners:
The Macalester softball squad announced yesterday that they plan to use ghost-runners this season in order to match the numbers of other, larger Minnesota schools. ƒ?oeOur girls are terrific, but theyƒ?TMre playing teams that have twice as many players,ƒ?? said coach Rudy Pierson. ƒ?oeThe obvious answer on our side is to use ghost-runners.ƒ?? The ghost-runners will be managed by the first and third base coaches, and will also allow Macalester to feature a lineup featuring only their strongest hitter, senior Anne Tulley. Preliminary response by other MIAC schools has been lukewarm, with some coaches questioning the validity of such a move and others waiting to see how often ghost runners will advance from first to third on singles to right field, as well as the protocol umpires will use when ghostrunners attempt to steal bases or break up double plays.

Drugs and Society lab section ƒ?oegoing greatƒ??:
The popular Macalester psychology course ƒ?oeDrugs and Societyƒ?? unveiled a new lab section this spring amid controversy from the administration, but preliminary reports from students are very positive. ƒ?oeI didnƒ?TMt want to get up on Thursdays for the lab, but the last couple sections have been great. We even discussed the physiological and psychological effects of marijuana then compared the deliciousness of various chocolates. Itƒ?TMs great to have a lab to complement the class with more experiential learning,ƒ?? said the TA for the lab, junior Phillip Bergen. While the lab section has proved popular initially, Bergen warned that students should refrain from pronouncing the lab an unqualified success until after the PCP and methamphetamine units.

    I have learned new things out of your blog post. Also a thing to I have observed is that in many instances, FSBO sellers will reject an individual. Remember, they might prefer to never use your expert services. But if a person maintain a stable, professional romance, offering aid and keeping contact for about four to five weeks, you will usually be capable to win a discussion. From there, a listing follows. Thank you
