The Washington Nationals Game my class went to was a success! The Nationals beat the Cardinals, and we all learned more about baseball as a result of it. Our class seminar was about Baseball in the District. We also got a lecture about how baseball has transformed throughout history and even used baseball as a metaphor for our lives.
It wasn’t as good as the Yankees game I went to in their new stadium but it was still a good game. I’m glad I’ve gotten to attend a professional game in DC in one of my last weekends here!
Going to the game made me slightly want to start liking baseball so when I get back home, I might start following it now! I won’t make any promises though….

Since I’m in the sports section of the paper, I have decided to embrace my inner athlete and watch/enjoy sports. That being said, I am now an official fan of the Yankees, Dallas Cowboys, and the Lakers. Hopefully now by watching more sports I’ll be able to use it in my writing for the paper since I hardly know anything about them!
I have always been a Yankees and Lakers fan but I’ve never really actively watched their games before but now that’ll change with my newly rejuvenated fandom. I also used to like the Jets in football only because I saw that they were winning at one point, but now I’ve randomly chosen the Cowboys, probably because their hats were on sale and I bought one!
This week for the paper I have to cover men’s and women’s golf, which is exciting since I’ve never covered it/watched it before! But regardless, hopefully the teams win!
Just showing off my new Cowboys hat! No big deal!
So last night two of the three sports teams I wanted to win last night won, which I’d say is pretty good! The Yankees beat the Angels, the Jets beat the Cowboys, but sadly Serena Williams lost her match against Stosur in the US Open.
I watched the beginning of the Jets game, only to turn it off early because it was getting late and they were behind 24-10. But I was glad to wake up to the news that they came from behind and won!
Today I only have two classes which means two things. 1. I’m going to have a lot of free time and 2. It will be spent doing homework for my classes tomorrow! I also get to work on the Collegian, which comes out Wednesday. And I’ve also joined Latinos Unidos on campus which is a group where we connect with Hispanics in the Indianapolis community. Each member gets a high school buddy and we talk to each other throughout the school year just to encourage each other and to be friends. I can’t wait until buddies are assigned!
You can find out more about Special Interest Groups on campus here.
Here’s a video of the halftime 9/11 tribute at the Jets game. They got people to form the bases of the Twin Towers with lights.
Since taking my Sportswriting course, I’ve become a sports fanatic! I have been constantly checking the ESPN website to get the latest updates and scores. I’ve been especially checking the US Open matches! Hopefully Serena Williams can pull out a win today!
I’ve also been keeping up with football and baseball. Of course I’ve always loved the Yankees but I’ve recently become a New York Jets fan! They play the Cowboys tonight so I know I’ll be up watching that tonight!
On a side note, today is the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. I was in fourth grade when it happened. I did not understand the complexity of the issue at the time but now I see what an impact it has made on our country. Now, we can be grateful that we live in a safer and more united America. The Collegian is doing a staff reflection on its website today about what happened.
Here’s a video that serves as a tribute to the day
Of course the baseball season has started and the Yankees have been on a three game winning streak and I really hope they can keep it alive against the White Sox tonight! I’m from the Chicago area so I’d rather the Yankees win so my friends won’t tease me about losing!
I also randomly like the British soccer team Newcastle United, but they’ve been struggling recently so we’ll just awkwardly change subjects!
Baseball has also come in handy recently to keep me away from all this Royal Wedding news. At first I was really excited to see it. But now it is everywhere and I just need a break! I still haven’t decided if I’ll watch it this week. Maybe I’d be more excited if I were invited (It’s not too late William and Kate!).
Random Video of the Day:
I love making fun of the Mets and this video does it for me
When I first started this blog I remember being so excited about the Yankees going to the Playoffs and it’s weird seeing that the new baseball season has already started! There’s also only a month left of school (Who’s counting, anyway?!?) which is even weirder! This year has definitely flown past me and I have no idea where it went!
Today I only had one class so I’ve definitely been having a lazy day today. What makes it better is that my first two classes got canceled for tomorrow so I get to sleep in! Besides it being my birthday on Monday, classes being canceled, being able to wear shorts AND hardly having any homework, I’m not sure how this week could get any better!
This evening there is a pep rally for the basketball team so I’ll be sure to go over to Hinkle Fieldhouse to go support our basketball team! They really put in a lot of hard work and hopefully they can do it again next season!!
Creeping on some people (as usual!) going to Robertson Hall on Sunday!
