February 7, 2007 The University News Back Page ToP21 Situations to AVOID on GROUNDHOG DAY at UD All twenty-one of these unfortunate events have happened to real life UD students. Consider yourself warned for next year. 20, 21. Try your hardest not to fall asleep on the provided buses. They circle from the U D tower to Groundhog Park all night long, and so will you. Pre-gaming is for people 21 and older. Start early, drink really slowly. Avoid using tequila in lieu of Gatorade to hydrate before the 5K. Remember, it's a marathon, not a race. If you feel even the slightest urge to urinate, please take a place in the civilized line forming by the johns. Do not run. Do not cut. This has ended with students tripping and falling, arms first, into the pot of porta-potty dung. February tends to be a muddy month for Texas. Groundhog break dancing is not recommended. The woods are for people seeking to relieve themselves, throw up, or make out. The woods are blocked off for your own safety and...

As a result the university decided to officially withdraw its bid, and turn its attention to other ventures. While some might consider this loss a major blow, it pales in comparison to the possible gain we might enjoy in the form of the DFW Crossroads development. Officially this is a "transit oriented development" that will not only bring the DART system to our front door, but also free up commuter traffic passing through the area. Practically, this means students who have until now felt limited by a lack of veil lcular transportation can h...

4 The University News February 14, 2007 Sports The Th rteenth Man There are many ways to support the team— some are more constructive than others I Eric Haney Staff Writer Pop pop. Fizz fizz. I don't know what spirit is. For some, this solemn little ditty is on par with flag burning and not knowing the meaning of Christmas, so please allow me to explain myself. Throughout middle school and high school, I have suffered through so many award ceremonies, homecomings, pep rallies, and booster club clambakes that victory now leaves a vile taste in my mouth. It makes me retch. I am allergic to trophies, cheering makes me wheeze, first place medals are my kryptonite — I am just incompatible with sports. But that doesn't mean that I don't help my team out. No ma'am, I'll have you know that I've played a vital role in every athletic achievement this campus has seen since the fall of 06. Yes, all eight of them. It is almost like I am an extra player on the field, a player that nobody asked fo...

8 The University News February 14, 2007 Commentary Sticks and Stones... Mike Hasson CONTRIBUTOR "Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me." I grew up hearing this refrain from my parents. Indeed, since my time at UD, I have lived this sentence as best I could. As the goalkeeper of the men's soccer team, I've gotten the stuffing kicked out of me on more than one occasion: dislocated shoulders, torn muscles, concussions and several broken noses and fingers. Those times hurt. There were countless other times, how- ever, that I've been insulted from the side- lines by rival fans. I've been called names that I could not understand and many more that I could. However, this is normal, stupid behavior and no matter how much the host universities attempt to limit it, there will always be drunk, stupid people saying things that they might (or might not) have been ashamed to say if they were sober. Shake it off and keep playing. There is nothing else to do. Shawn Waugh...

Since there are So many people already in the running we're just going to look at the ones that are either serious or funny. Hillary Clinton Pros: Competence, experience, icy-cold Cheney-esque death- stare. The junior senator from New York has become the picture of moderation and is the frontrun- ner for the Ds. Cons: Is still Hillary Clinton, must not gain office. Barack Obama Pros: Likeable, interesting background, appeals to a wide audience, smoker. So maybe you don't know anything about him.

I didn't realize it would be so difficult to be DA of Dallas County. I knew I had to get folks to believe in me, but I didn't believe that in 2006 people would still hold me being African American as a negative," Craig Watkins, Dallas County DA, said during his address at the Third Annual Black History Month celebration hosted by UD's Black Student Association. Watkins knew when he was 16 that he wanted to be DA, but when he ran, he realized the campaign would not be so easy. He had to face certain questions. "Do I want to put my family through this? I was doing really well before—big house, lots of money, and a good reputation. Do I want t...

Two seniors,; Borja Gutierrez and Omar Garcia-Rojas, spoke about their research before an audience of about forty people in Carpenter Hall. Gutierrez discussed the ars poetica of Antonio Machado, a poet of Spain's Generation of '98. Garcia-Rojas focused on Spanish- American magical-realism as it occurs in One Hundred Years, of Solitude, a novel written by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, a Columbian author who won the Nobel Prize for Titerature in 1982. Following their presentations, each student fielded questions for twenty minutes. Gutierrez acknowledged that defending his thesis publicly wa s Garcia-Boj as Gutierrez a bit intimidating. "Being the first ones to do this put a lot of pressure on us," he said. "But I think we were able to rise to the occasion." "It was a fulfillin...

The University News February 21, 2007 Sports Hoggies Sweeep SFA, SMU RJ Karas Sports Editor Two straight wins by die University of Dallas have earned the Hoggies a second seed going into the playoffs. Two weeks ago, the Groundhogs traveled to Stephen F. Austin to face the Lumberjacks. Though six of UD's ruggers were mentally exhausted from taking their comprehensive exams, the burden of the exams did not prevent the 'Hoggies from prevailing. Leadership from the club's seniors helped UD overcome a slow start. After the Lumberjacks of SFA scored first, senior RJ Karas used every bit of his rather weak lower-body strength to plow through three tacklers to- score UD's first try of the match. The onslaught continued as Captain Nick Wignall, and Seniors Danny Torrez and Phil Watson all touched down trys to put the Groundhogs well ahead of the Lumberjacks. Though UD did suffer a mental breakdown in the second half, the match was too far out of reach. The 'Hoggies earned five points with th...

If you are like me, then you will probably assume a blank face and blink a few times before formulating a polite response to this line of questioning, such as: "I'm still deciding." Fortunately, however, there is an office right here at UD that is devoted to aiding us in such situations. Contrary to popular opinion, this office is not down any rabbit hole. It actually exists in Carpenter Hall 141, and its name is Career Services (catchy, I know). The Career Office not only exists, but also boasts a very able and willing staff.

McMahon offers more constructive nses of Facebook Mike McMahon COMMENTARY EDITOR A s I was stalking through the much despised Facebook Feed, I came across something surprising. It appears that I can now, for a nominal fee, send people "gifts" The gifts are just little graphics and in and of themselves fairly inoffensive. The proceeds from the gifts, however, are going to the obviously evil Susan G. Komen Foundation. This foundation, aside from doing things like helping to save people from breast cancer, cut some checks to Planned Parenthood. Long story short, people with too much time on their hands found out about this. They have rallied their internet- savvy friends to boycott the gift- giving feature and/or 1 acibook in general. This raises two issues. First, who was going to pay to send their friends these chintzy little things, anyway? Second, Facebook is like crack, but with flavor crystals th...

J_0_Februar^J^^£221il!®1^iiv®!!sjt^_News_ Arts & Entertainment Sadie Hawkins Dance Proves Successful Despite Small Budget Gabe Roberts CONTRIBUTOR The theme for this year's Sadie Hawkin's dance was "The Jungle Book," but it might more appropriately have been "Inadequate Funding," The Student Government allocated a ISO budget for the entire dance, which, even with the SPUD Sound Committee volunteers providing free music, is far too little to organize a successful function. Considering the lack of funding, freshman Meagan Marshall did an exceptional job of promoting and managing the dance. Couples began arriving shortly after nine, and soon the music began. Couples danced to a mix of rock, rap, swing, and hip-hop, with the occasional salsa thrown in. Crowd favorites included radio hits by Shakira, Blink-182, and Big & Rich. Vitamin C's "Graduation Song," probably brought back more than a few high school memories, and the night culminated with couples dancing under the dim ligh...

I MOVIE REVIEWER Hugh Grant may be getting a bit long in the tooth, but his aging boyish charm is still what keeps Music and Lyrics (wide release) in tune. It's a by-the-numbers romantic comedy in which he plays a has-been singer from an '80s group called PoP! (obviously modeled on Wham!) who's living off his long- ago fame by playing nostalgia gigs before boomer female audiences at state fairs and amusement parks. But his luck changes when a Britney-like diva asks him to write a new song for her, which they'll perform together at Madison Square Garden. He's a wiz at melodies, but needs a wordsmith fast. One providentially shows up in the form of a ditzy plant-waterer who's a poet to boot (Drew Barrymore) but, as it turns out, has romantic troubles. Needless to say, when they begin to work together those troubles gradually evap...
