As a lacrosse player, the concept of a week-long beach vacation for spring break is little more than a fallacy for me. Every year, the team plays games for break, and thus we spend the week grounded in Boulder when the rest of the school bails to somewhere with sandy beaches.
Well, for the first time since I started competitively playing lacrosse, I was given a few days of break to myself. Our coaches gave us three entire days off. When given a gift like this, the only option is to ask yourself, what is the most epic thing I can do today?
Well, another basketball season at Coors Events Center is in the books (the season itself is still going, the Buffs are heading out to Las Vegas later this week for the Pac-12 tournament).
However, for the Buffs this season, there was no place like home as they finished the year 16-2 at home. While I don't mean to take credit we don't deserve, I have always felt that the C-Unit is one of the reasons for our home dominance.
This weekend marks the second annual installment of (one of) the Istanbul Derby games. In Istanbul there are three teams: Galatasaray, Fenerbahce (Fen-air-bah-che), and Besiktas (Be-sheikh-tash). Generally, Fenerbahce represents the Asian side, Besiktas hails from the neighbor for which it is named (Istanbul’s most populous), and Galatasaray is for the rest (although they are often associated with the genteel class).
For those of you from around the country who may not have been paying as close of attention to the weather, for the past week Boulder has been freezing. For about 4 or 5 days in a row temperatures hovered in the single digits, and crossed into the negatives more than once. Now, for my warmer weather readers, don't fret. This type of weather pattern is abnormal and even through it all, we were still getting a remarkable amount of sunshine.
Well, I can safely assume that everyone has at least heard about the pitiful beat down that was administered in yesterday's Super Bowl. As a Colorado native, and lifelong Bronco's fan, that was one of the most painful sporting events that I have ever watched.
Well, I have made it back to America. After a long, 31-hour day of travel that included 4 airports, and (remarkably) no delays or snags I got home just two short days before classes started for second semester.
I was fortunate and didn't suffer too terribly from jet lag, but my weekend was spent blitzing around town, seeing as many people as I could and moving into my house.
After our first round of midterms of the semester, Spring Break could not have come at a better time! Although the most popular college Spring Break destinations include Cabo, Las Vegas, and Miami, I chose to go on a backcountry skiing trip in the mountains outside of Aspen!...
