Punt the Pigskin: Why We Should Stop Watching Football

Football season is coming. And with that, I am here to bring you the most important analysis you need before the NFL season even begins: you should stop watching football. Furthermore, the NFL and the sport of tackle football should be abolished in America. This take has been a long time coming for me. For...

Andres Iniesta: El Ilusionista, la Leyenda

To the casual soccer fan, the name Andres Iniesta will be forever associated with Spanish dominance because of two touches. The first wasn’t great, as instead of bringing down Cesc Fabregas’ pass, he popped it up, but the second was sublime, volleying past Dutch goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg. He crowned Spain as world champions with his...

Patty Jenkins Brings Wonder Woman—and Girl Power—to Georgetown

On June 14th, a little girl named Isabella stood at the corner of P Street and Wisconsin, clutching a Wonder Woman Barbie and wearing a pajama set styled after the superhero’s iconic spangled costume. Next year, she would start second grade at a D.C. elementary school, but today, Isabella was part of the growing crowd...

The Metropolist: Ranking Cities in Sports

By:

Many power rank teams, but few rank cities.  Halftime hopes to change that.  This ranking will look at the five cities which have had the best month in sports, and the one which can take comfort in the fact that at least it is not Cleveland.  It will be biased, arbitrary and confusing, but maybe…

Whether you like it or not, summer session has begun here on the Hilltop. Now, for most of you, who are out in the world trying to squeeze as much fun out of your summer as possible (or who are stuck in a boring summer internship), this doesn’t matter at all. But for us here…

For a while there, it looked like the Washington Wizards may have had a shot at making the Eastern Conference Finals. But, it was not to be. This season, for Washington, ended short of the proposed goal of every franchise: a championship; but here in the Nation’s Capital, we’re still celebrating. On paper, the 2013-2014…

Camp David  shows care for its audience

By:

The first sign is the smoke.  It’s not fire in the theater, but a kind of incendiary nonetheless—a rich, woody haze wafting from the omnipresent pipe of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat (Khaled Nabawy) that helps honor, for the next two hours, what it means to be an audience. The audience has never been more rewarded…

Final exams are almost upon us, and many times I wish I could escape the tense atmosphere building up in Lauinger Library and spilling across campus. I wish I had a place to go that would pull my attention away from my essays and chemistry problem sets. Luckily, the Phillips Collection’s Rothko Room provides a space…

I’m not sure how a comic like writer Matt Fraction and artist Chip Zdarsky’s Sex Criminals #5  got past an editor. It’s not bad (in fact, I would say it’s one of the best comics of the year), but good lord in heaven, this has a premise that I don’t think I could ever explain to…

By:

Depeche Mode is a collection of the most swagged out and awe-inspiring men of our time. “101” is one of the greatest concerts of all time. Dave Gahan literally rose from the grave. Martin Gore wrote “Personal Jesus.” They even singlehandedly shut down West Los Angeles: One Direction ain’t got nothing on them. But it’s…

Every baseball fan has at least one particular missed call that sticks in their mind and has no plan on ever leaving. For me it came in game two of the 2005 American League Championship Series between the Los Angeles Angels and the Chicago White Sox. Bottom of the ninth, two outs, game tied at…

The NFL draft is fast approaching and if you ever tune in to ESPN or a similar sports network you’ve surely seen the hype machines talking up or down certain prospects. One day Johnny Manziel’s stock is at an all time high and the next day he is the fourth best quarterback available. Teddy Bridgewater…
