The show was a surprising success and the many students that attended greatly enjoyed the event. This spoof of a beloved game show was splendidly hosted by Dan Schiesser. Residence Life Coordinator, who played the part of Bob Barker. Keith Cerroni,02/DUS, Kris Lynch, 04/Mechanical Eng., and Andrew Moore, 02/Graphic Design, assisted Schiesser and truly put "Barker's Beauties" to shame. Not only did they display prizes and games, but they also wore tight, revealing dresses that they looked damn good in. Out of the sixty enthusiastic audience members, twenty-four received the thrill of a lifetime and were selected to "come on down" and be a contestant on the game show. The show began when four contestants were asked to guess the amount of M&Ms in ajar, and the one who guessed m...

The Force is with our Wire Services Editor [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 April 1999
The Force is with our Wire Services Editor by Katie Galley wire services editor Yes, folks, it's only 20 days now until the new Star Wars movie opens! Excitement is in the air, at least for the mass sum of us who worship Star Wars. In case you have been in a cave for the last 22 years, here is what you have missed. May 25,1977. George Lucas releases a little movie called Star Wars. The movie plays in 32 screens across the country. And so the craze begins, at least for the people alive back then. It was over a full year later that this fan was born and in my deprived childhood, I admit that I never actually saw Star Wars. I know, it is extremely sad. What is even worse is the fact that in 1997, when the movie returned to the theaters, I was literal)v draseed into the theater to see the "Special Edition." I didn't want to see this "space movie." What did I know? I spent the first hour being truly annoying. 1 laughed at the special effects; "You can see a box around the plane!"...

El way's retirement will leave a void in sports world [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 April 1999
El way's retirement will leave a void in sports world Out of Bounds IASQNLSKYDER Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky and now, John Elway. When the football great retires this Sunday, it will hopefully bring to an end three months of crushing blows in the sports world. There's no doubt that their respective sports won't ever be the same again. Whatever genius said, "all bad things come in threes," was proven right by the happenings so far in 1999. You can bet Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen was shaking in his boots when he saw basketball and hockey's greats call it quits. And when Bowlen received a telephone message from Elway about two weeks ago, he knew his expectations for the 1999-2000 season would take a monumental turn. Unfortunately for Elway, his decision wasn't dependent on his love for the game or his drive for a Super Bowl three-peat. Rather, a 1998-99 season riddled with hamstring, back and rib injuries and the news that he would soon need an artificial knee, forced E...
Hockey is secondary to tragedy [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 April 1999
Hockey is secondary to tragedy Down to the Wire...) By Dan Wood Knight-Ridder Newspapers DENVER - No one involved with the Sharks or Colorado Avalanche really wanted to play hockey Wednesday night. They didn't. In conjunction with the NHL, the teams postponed the first two games of their opening-round Stanley Cup playoff series because of the tragic events a day earlier at Columbine High School in suburban Littleton, Colo. Using a cache of guns and pipe bombs, two male students allegedly murdered 13 people and injured more than 20 others before apparently killing themselves. "Let's face it. Right now, hockey isn't a priority," said Avalanche winger Jeff Odgers, a former San Jose captain. Instead of playing the first two games of their Western Conference quarterfinal series Wednesday and tonight in Denver, the Avalanche and Sharks will face off Saturday night and Monday night at San Jose Arena. The series will shift to McNichols Arena...
