Saturday's Squirrel.

A mad, winter dash

What's a squirrel to do when it's cold and snowy? Apparently, they're just like us. Squirrels don't like winter so much so that this furry friend didn't want to stop and give a non-verbal. C'mon's for the kids!

Californians in Winter.

Mentally, he could be anywhere in California right now.

Native Californians are always caught off guard by their first winter. At first, the snow is pretty, but they soon learn that is a the harbinger of much misery and pain. Still, for those who are enduring “round two” of winter, coping techniques are in place so that when winter storm Linus dumped a substantial amount of snow on campus, this native Californian and Steds sophomore, Steven Mike, said, "My favorite activity to do in the snow is pretend that I'm actually someplace warm."

Some people have...

But did they play a pick up basketball game?

...all the luck. On a recent trip to Hawaii, Dom Fanelli '11, former RA, ACE teacher, and NBC consultant, ran into a Notre Dame celebrity, Manti Te'o. When asked how this happened, moreover, what he, Fanelli, was doing at a Hawaiian high school while on vacation, Fanelli responded, "I wanted to see Punahou High School where Obama- and Te'o- went to school. I spoke with some teachers, and while walking through the gym, I suddenly ran into Te'o himself!" What are the chances?

Rising stars.

Freshmen squad: pointing to next year's season

Last week we heard a lot about the senior and junior basketball squads, but let's not forget the rising stars of the Sted's franchise. Here's the Sted's freshmen basketball squad, Team Fresh Meat. Playing in the Division A and composed entirely of freshmen, the team has not only a 0 and 3 record but also TWO losses of MORE THAN 40 points. When asked about the team's season, Alex Schelhorn, Sted's freshmen and team inspiration, said, "Most teams are either on or off; we are always off."

What's cooking at...

Mathes: All smiles as a panini burns

...Ed's? Good question. I think that the question wasn't "What's cooking?" but rather "What's burning?" When asked what he was burning at Ed's, Parker Mathes, Sted's freshman and Ed's food tech, said, "Everything." Well done... well done indeed!
