Something I've been waiting to see for a long time has finally happened. The Daily Orange has digitized their archives. Well, most of them anyway.
I didn't write for the D.O., though I applied for a columnist position once and was promptly discarded. However, I did write a couple Letter to the Editor editorials that made it into the paper. Obviously, they were about sports. Obviously, they were overwrought and over-involved about the importance of Syracuse Orange athletics and myself.
I found one of them. And it is as glorious as I remember. From December 10, 1999 (click to enlarge):
Oh my God, I was SO ANGRY, you guys. If I could say anything to 1999 Sean Keeley, it would be, SETTLE DOWN, SLUGGER.
Did I kick things off with a defense of Coach P? My God...
(And I hope Troy Nunes reads this and knows I always had his back. Obviously).
I'm pretty sure I wrote another one about how Syracuse basketball fans need to be more enthusiastic (I was SO that guy), but I haven't found it yet.
Also, the only way the D.O. can keep this digitizations going is with donations. Find out how you can help here.
