10 Reasons Why I'm Glad That It's Baseball Season

Hey, batter batter.

10 Reasons Why I'm Glad That It's Baseball Season

As spring rolls around and the weather warms up, it' hard to stay motivated to do homework inside. Fortunately, with baseball season beginning, I know of both an excuse to be outside and a new spot to do homework (or not, your choice). Drum roll please... The baseball stadium.

Here are 10 reasons that I, and many others, are pumped that it’s finally baseball season again.

1. Warm Weather

Getting to be outside in the sunshine watching your school’s team run bases and hit home runs… it can’t get much better than that.

2. Free Entertainment

Whether you care about baseball or not, it’s something different to do. It’s better than being inside doing schoolwork!

3. The Social Aspect

Hanging out with your friends in the squeaky stadium seats is always the way to go.

4. Baseball Boys

The general consensus here is that I don’t need to elaborate on this point.

5. Nostalgia

Ah, sweet high school memories.

6. The Walk Out Songs

Some guys take this part of the game very seriously and work hard to pick the perfect song for their strut up to the plate, but we love it just as much when they add a bit of humor to the mix and go with a throwback song or one that simply just doesn’t fit the occasion.

7. Getting To See Your Friends And Classmates Play

For a small liberal arts school like Wofford, we often know exactly who is out on the field or next at bat. Knowing the players personally makes it that much more entertaining to scream their name at the top of your lungs as they stand ready for the pitch.

8. Your Average Grill-Out

Whether you like hot-dogs, hamburgers, boiled peanuts, or popcorn, sometimes the concessions make the game that much better.

9. Meeting New People

What better way to make friends than while supporting your team?

10. It is Simply America's Pastime.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
