What’s the point of All-Star Games?

By Michael Fergusson The Pro Bowl was this weekend. Did you miss it? That’s OK, we all did. Let’s be real: All-Star games are terrible, awful, pointless endeavors. Right off the bat, we should get one thing straight: the MLB All-Star game is the only one that matters. The game decides which league, American or […]

To expand, USF St. Petersburg needs on-campus sports

A major part of college, aside from cramming for exams and pulling all-nighters, is attending sporting events. Many students live for the moment when their basketball team upsets a ranked opponent at home with a last second buzzer beater, or when their football team crushes the rival with home-field advantage. The excitement of having a […]
