last night (7/14) on ESPN's "outrageous personalities" #19 was Dick Vitale. One of the clips played was Dicky V. in an empty Mullins going one on one with Camby. Pretty funny. Let's hope to have similar situations in the future.

You mean a basketball game in an empty Mullins Center? Just go to the first game next year.

thought someone might have seen this, but just for the sake of it, the Cheney explosion in the green room at Mullins was a part of a clip package that ran during The Roots' performance on sportscenter last week. Old footage, obviously, but it's always interesting to see the WGGB call letters on the screen.

John Edgar Wideman, Professor of English at UMASS Amherst is featured on page 3 of Playboy in their "Playbill" section in the newest edition.





as a matter of fact, after checking out the front cover again, his name is listed on the front cover... some good publicity for one of our faculty i'd say :P

Author and UMass alum Nick Flynn has recently published 'Another Bullshit Night in Suck City'. Excerpt in the New Yorker a couple of months ago...

watching espn2 this morning and noticed our mascot on a commercial for them. i think he was sitting next to andy roddick in some waiting room. roddick was bouncing a ball off his racket and it was pissing off the minuteman so much he eventually smacks it away. pretty funny actually.
