On Sept. 9, the Women’s Cross Country team came the closest anyone has been in four years to beating Orange Coast. Coach Mike Barbee says it is because his athletes train and work hard every practice. Even though no standings are kept, Barbee believes that the team is ranked second or third.
The women’s soccer team was led by first year head coach Lynsey Jalayer, who hosted the Spartans of Mira Costa in a non conference match Sept 14. Prior to this game the Tigers suffered their first loss of the season to Orange Coast. When asked how she felt about today’s game Jalayer was optimistic.
Picture, for a minute, a group of men dressed in red and blue jumpsuits. They are all gathered as they hoot, holler and slap each other high fives. You may be tempted to guess that these men are drawn together for some kind of patriotic event, maybe even for the celebration of the Fourth of July inevitably due to the colors that they are all wearing.
2-1 was not a loss, but more of a maturing process for the Riverside Community College men’s soccer team in its recent match up versus San Bernardino Valley College. Plays were not defined on either side of the field. But coach Francisco Melgarejo sees this as a learning experience, for a team with about 90 percent of the players being freshmen.
The Tigers are on an average run with a record of 6-4. The team only has three returning players and the rest consist of freshmen. In addition the Tigers have terrific talent and they work great as a unit. With leading player Erin Araujo, and Kristina Obermeyer, who combined for 28 kills and 34 digs.
For those who yearn for 21st century Black Panther music, two of Chicago’s best lyricists have the answer, and so much more. The recent releases of Common’s Be and Kanye West’s Late Registration proves that the essence of hip-hop will not be lost amongst the superfluous rhymes of ostentatious southern rappers with little to no talent.
“Nostalgia” is a word that can be negatively connoted, but under certain circumstances it can be quite beneficial to something such as a movement in music. What is the signature sound for this generation? We don’t know. Whatever it is, it’s lost in the static of gangster rap and death metal.
Eugene Levy is the man. Period. Levy (“American Pie”, “Best in Show”) joins veteran actor Samuel L. Jackson (“Pulp Fiction”, “Coach Carter”) in his latest comedic venture, “The Man.” Andy Fidler, Levy, is your average middle-American man. He has a nice house, a nice wife, three nice kids and a prestigious job in the exciting field of dental supply sales.
I went to a high school where fashion statements sometimes seemed more important than actually learning. Girls would come back from summer vacation with a new wardrobe, new hairstyle and sometimes a new designer bag-disregarding what grades they had received in their previous classes.
