Appeal-ing Information 2/26

Every time updates it's Orange Appeal section, we take a closer look to determine what this random sampling really says about the SU athlete, and to a larger extent, society.

Favorite Season (Weather)? First of all, what is with the clarification of that question? You can ask for a favorite season or favorite weather, both are acceptable fact-finding queries. Did we really need to make a clarification? Are we afraid Eric Devendorf doesn't know that summer is hot and winter is snowy? Actually, scratch that...

Jovan Miller truly did pick the right school for him. It's his favorite season eight months a year!

Favorite Children's Book? If I were running Orange Appeal, I'd end this line of questioning. It's creepy. Why not ask what their favorite book is right now? I'm much more interested to learn whether or not Eric Devendorf is reading Malcolm Gladwell than if he enjoyed Green Eggs and Ham as a child.

Speaking of Green Eggs and/or Ham,
Chanieka Williams' favorite book is Dr. Seuss. That would make a lot of sense if Dr. Seuss were the name of a book and not just the name of an AUTHOR! Do they not stress specificity at Syracuse anymore?

Favorite Musical Artist? My guess is that Lil Wayne is an avid reader of my blog (just a hunch). If so, I assume he'll be pleased as punch (his words) to see that he is the most sought after musical artist at SU. He better be booking a two-night gig in the Dome right now. Maybe Jay-Z and Robert Plant can open for him. Seems likely.
