Appeal-ing Information

I've been extremely disappointed in whoever's in charge of the Orange Appeal section at the bottom of the SUAthletics website. Much like the last news item on Yahoo's homepage, this section above all others cuts to the core of the human condition and says to us "Facts schmacts, what I really want to know is what Arinze Onuaku's favorite season is?"

Sadly, the section lay dormant for a few months for some unknown reason. Certainly couldn't be because we learned everything we could about the peccadilloes and idiosyncrasies of our Orange athletes. Case and point, the most recent posting.

Every time the section is updated we'll take a closer look at it to determine what this random sampling really says about the SU athlete, and to a larger extent, society.

1. A two legged walking fruit is okay but an eight-legged arachnid is a big no-no for SU Athletes. Hopefully no opponents come here looking for an edge and decide, 80's-college-movie-style, to unleash a crate full of Brazilian Wandering Spiders in our locker rooms. (Personally I think Syracuse's' mass fears of spiders comes from one singular event).

2. I assume The Frey is some local cover band for the wildly popular, famous and correctly-spelled The Fray. They're best known for the song "How To Save A Life." That's "A" life, with an "A."

3. I am turning 30 this year. I recently saw a magazine cover with Lupe Fiasco on it. I did not know who he was. T.J. Murphy does. I am old.
