Month: September 2000 (page 1 of 7)


Check out the NDPD Police Blotter for August. Okay, so most of the things on there are actual crimes… but check out the “larceny” that occurred on 8/9/00. Apparently somebody at the Joyce Center reported that “two pairs of sunglasses and a pair of scissors” were stolen from their desk. At 11:30 in the morning. Does this strike you as a little, uh, dumb? Like our police force – even Rent-a-Cops, which they are – don’t have anything better to do than look for missing sunglasses and scissors??

Well done.

A great response to that SMC T-shirt controversy. Way to go, women.

About time!

Wow! You can now swipe your Notre Dame ID and do your laundry!

A bit unfair.

Does anybody else think that it’s slightly unfair that Jenn Grubb, varsity women’s soccer player, is playing Interhall football this year? I’m not saying she shouldn’t be allowed or anything; she’s got as much right as anybody. But I still don’t like it.

SMC Chicks again

Okay, so the SMC junior class prints up a T-shirt. On the shirt are two girls, one wearing an ND shirt and the other wearing a “French Cross” SMC shirt. Then there’s an ND boy kissing the SMC girl with “The Girl of Choice” written below. Now some people are (rightly) protesting that this is the kind of thing that gives SMC Chicks a bad name.

ND Football

An ESPN columnist points out how ridiculous it is that one play (Michigan State’s 4th-and-10 gamewinner) changes our rating so much. There’s also a great quote from Lou about his new team: “I told this team they could play with any team in the country. I just haven’t figured out WHAT country yet.”

Weasel Football

WEASEL FOOTBALL VICTORY! The girls improve their record to 2-0-1 with a 7-6 victory over McGlinn (scroll down). The defense racked up an astonishing 3 sacks and 1 interception! GO WEASELS!

Keep the Observer independent!

In case you haven’t heard, the Administration is trying to take away the Observer’s “independent status.” Why? Because they cover issues (i.e. GLND/SMC) that the school disagrees with. Some people think this is bad. I find it so idiotically bad that I can’t even begin to describe it.

Pyros suck

Poetic justice: PE gets thrashed 29-6. *snicker* Pyros SUCK.

Weasel Football

WEASEL FOOTBALL REPORT: We are 1-0-1 so far this year! Check out this article in the Observer: “Purple Weasels take on Shamrocks in enemy territory”. Our team kicks so much ass. And a defensive linewoman broke her nose in the Farley game last week! Weasels are so tough. You make us proud girls!
