Champions League Reactions: Semifinals, Part 2

Let me get the scores out of the way, because I want to depart from the usual formula.   Real Madrid 2-2 Bayern Munich (4-3 agg.) Ulreich messed up, and Bayern’s front three couldn’t finish. Real had no business moving on, but they’re in the final. Good for them. Roma 4-2 Liverpool (6-7 agg.) Liverpool...

The Case for Morocco to Host the 2026 World Cup

NBA Playoffs First Round Reactions and Look-Aheads

The first round of the 2018 NBA playoffs was much more exciting than last year’s. Lower seeds pulled off upsets, multiple series went to 6+ games, and DID LEBRON LOSE? No, just like I said. It took a lot of injuries and mishaps for the playoffs to become as chaotic as they seem to be...

[8tracks url=”http://8tracks.com/clibre/free-henle” ] Novembers on the Hilltop bring their usual brisk days, and a concurrent increase in time spent indoors and bothersome additional layers of clothing. All of this can leave fair Hoyas feeling a bit hemmed in and pent up. This fall, however, residents of the Henle Village are feeling more trapped than usual….

[8tracks url=”http://8tracks.com/carleytucker/the-escape-folk-and-bluegrass” ] The word midterm is definitely a misnomer, especially when the infamous “midterm season” seems to last for about two months. The late night studying, last minute cramming, and steady stream of tests can become overbearing and, at times, simply annoying.

If you’ve ever been to the Georgetown Waterfront and looked out on the Potomac, you may have been struck with what looks like a forest floating in the middle of the river. I sure was, until a couple of friends explained to me that it was Roosevelt Island, a 90 acre National Park, accessible by…

The scent of Halloween fills my nostrils. That same thick, white smoke used for haunted houses pours over the stage and wafts over the heads of concert goers in the mysterious, hazy space that is the 9:30 club. Spectators line the balcony, circling the venue, while a mass of people mill around the stage, waiting…
