- My innertube waterpolo team is undefeated. We even beat a team named "The De-Protenators" fomr the chemistry department. This is marked improvement from last season when we did not win a single game.
- My intramural basketball team GOT IN A BENCHES-CLEARING BRAWL LAST NIGHT and it was awesome! Before I begin allow me to explain that I only know one person on my team, the one who invited me to join. I cannot be responsible for anyone else and I don't know what pushes their buttons or how 'easy to anger' they are. Having said that, here's how it went down: Our player came down hard with a rebound and called a timeout to make sure he wasn't hurt (he hit his head on the floor). The other team didn't notice the time-out so they ran over to our downed man and tried to strip the ball from him. Well, he didn't like that very much so he had a few words for the opponent and as soon as he got up there was a shoving match. Then they started throwing punches. Before you could say "Keep it cool as the bee's knees" the fight escalated and everyone (except me, of course) was in the throes of a gigantic brawl. The wives rushed in the middle to pull their husbands apart and the refs of course were yanking jerseys apart as best they could. It was so exciting! The only involvement I got was when our teams were separated and one of the opponents came over and nudged my teammate and said some unkind words in his face. My teammate started after him but I got in his way and told him to let it be. Yea, that's right. I totally saved the day. The intramural people really didn't know what to do after the debacle and ended up calling in back-up supervisors to help make punishments. The other team hit their five-a-season-aggressive-technical-fouls limit and were handed the loss. Even though one of my teammates got suspended from playing and likely reported to the honor code, we came off virtually unscathed and with a win! Our three wins this season have come from two no-shows and now a DQ'd team. We enter tournament play next week with a 3-2 record, our only actual games ending in losses. Smiley Face. We were only 12 minutes into the game so I was bummed we didn't get to finish it, but alas.

My life has been hectic (at best) over the past few weeks. Allow me to clue you in:
