If you haven’t already, go vote in the spring student elections! Vote “yes” to pass the Rec Sports Master Plan, which would create four brand new Rec Sports facilities across campus. Vote “yes” to make exercising and intramural sports more comfortable and enjoyable for the many future generations of University of Wisconsin-Madison students to come. And most importantly vote ‘yes’ because that’s the Badger thing to do. I already know what you’re thinking: Why should I care about something I probably won’t even get to enjoy during my time in college? Well, I argue, because it’s the right thing to do. As UW students, we pride ourselves on being the best at many things. Madison has been voted the best college football game-day town, “Jump Around” has been ranked as the best college football tradition, Wisconsin is recognized as one of the top party schools in the country, the school’s academics are documented as some of the most elite in the nation. The list goes on and on. I don’t see why we can’t add one more perk to the list of UW’s luxuries and have the best rec sports facilities in the Big Ten, too.

Have you ever wondered what $1 million could buy? Yeah, of course you have. According to the Barenaked Ladies’ hit song “If I Had $1,000,000,” you could buy an exotic pet (yep, like a llama or an emu) furniture for your house (maybe a nice Chesterfield or an ottoman) or a fur coat (but not a real fur coat, that’s cruel).
For anyone who has suffered through a cold, drawn-out Wisconsin winter, there is little to brag about when describing the weather in the Midwest. While walking more than a quarter of a mile outside in early February is often a challenge, battling the harsh conditions of an often non-existent spring proves to be even more difficult for softball players. Such an unforgiving climate makes for a few months of almost solely indoor practices and numerous cross-country road trips for the Wisconsin softball team.

There is nothing quite as sad as a brilliant director who runs his course. Legendary figures such as Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles produced their least memorable works in their final years, proving that even the greatest of talents can fade away with a whimper. Though the current Hollywood scene has numerous directors who have either maintained or improved their talents with age (Steven Spielberg, Clint Eastwood), it is also full of legendary directors who are in dire need of a redeeming project to remind the world what they're capable of.
