Oh, boy, it’s finally here. The summer movie season officially kicks off tomorrow with “The Avengers,” and I can finally stop scraping the bottom of the barrel for stuff to review. It couldn’t come at a more perfect time either.

Oh, boy, it’s finally here. The summer movie season officially kicks off tomorrow with “The Avengers,” and I can finally stop scraping the bottom of the barrel for stuff to review. It couldn’t come at a more perfect time either. The movie all of us geeks have been chomping at the bits for will arrive, and on the last day of classes, no less. Yeah, I’m pretty excited. I stop short of going all-caps, though. Wouldn’t want to overdo it.

Imagine that, along with a full class load and maybe even a part-time job, you went out more than three times a week and physically beat yourself, and others, up. That is what the Ole Miss Rugby team goes through on a daily basis.

Sherif Ahmed said you really have to be on top of your priorities.

“You have to balance school and rugby,” the sophomore said. “It’s not too hard, though.”

Criminal justice senior Kaan Onay agreed with Ahmed, in that a player has stay on top of his work.

The U.S. team pulled together amid a series of challenges that, just a few years ago, would have broken it apart. And while the illustrious careers of captain Christie Rampone, Shannon Boxx and maybe Abby Wambach are nearing their end, Lauren Cheney, Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe proved in Germany they are more than able successors.

As winter weather slowly disappears, so goes the pea coat. I, for one, bid a sad farewell to this great article of clothing.

No longer will I be able to add instant swagger and class to my outfit while getting ready in the morning. It is quite depressing, really.

We wore them to games, to class, to formals, to the Square, to church and even just to grab a bite at the JC.We wore them everywhere.
