Your Turn: Intramural Edition

A cold Saturday morning. Franklin Park. The brisk air is filled with the shouts of students cheering the name of their floor. Some players wear cleats and UnderArmor; others, simply shorts and a t-shirt. However, all are united by the belt they wear with a colored flag attached at each side. With all of the sports played at North Central, whether it’s baseball, soccer or basketball, no sport gets quite the level of involvement that Intramural Football does. Cuts, scrapes, bruises and stitches; North Central students endure it all for the love of the game. And with 18 teams composed of the finest men and women North Central has to offer, team spirit is a necessity. Here’s what some students had to say about their team:

Golf clap for Dean Goodwin

If you’ve stepped onto the floor of Two West Phillipps this year, you might have noticed a picture on the wall showcasing a strapping blonde youth playing quarterback for the former 1 West Men’s Intramural Football team. Who is this young man? None other than North Central’s own Dean Goodwin.

Tweet tweet!

Twitter. The name in and of itself is truly ridiculous. Dubbed as the latest in time-wasting devices, Twitter has been the topic of intense interest and ridicule alike. When I first heard this silly little word, I thought to myself, “dumb” and moved on. But as time went on and a few friends were integrating into the Twitter community (and yes, I do believe it is, in fact, a community), I found myself thinking, “If I had a twitter, I would…” Fill in the blank. I was making up statuses in my head—how lame is that? Don’t answer that.

Life After the Oscars: from Millionaire to Mumbai

From Slumdog Millionaire to just plain slumdog. By now most have either seen or at least heard about the movie that won Best Picture of the Year, as-well as seven other Oscar awards. However, I would venture to guess that while the majority of the world watched the Oscars, oohing and ahhing over the adorable Indian children who played major roles in Slumdog, not so many people kept up with their lives after leaving the red carpet behind.

Food that’s close to home

The food is greasy. There’s almost nowhere to sit. The only music comes from a radio playing loudly in the back of the kitchen. And yet, my trip to The Band Box restaurant was one of the most enjoyable I’ve had in my almost two years of living in downtown Minneapolis.
