Spider-man fails to transcend comics

Forty years after first appearing in a comic book, Spider-man (Sony) swings onto the screen amidst great excitement and anticipation. Through bankruptcies, lawsuits, director changes and even a Sept. 11 controversy over advertisements showing the World Trade Center, this film has prevailed, reaching the screen with a sequel already in the making.

Steiny signs off

I started writing this back in January. Back then I wasn’t such a procrastinator. I’m breaking my number one rule in column writing – there is nothing that irks me more than a column writer who writes about himself. But I’ve paid my dues, so deal with it. For five months my last statement has […]

I have been hearing about the Excellence in Student Life Awards for some time now, and just like in People magazine’s Sexiest Man list, I was snubbed. But what are these awards anyway? I can only imagine that they are excellent and thoughtful awards for students that do very good things on this campus. No, […]

Koken throws no hitter for first career win

Freshman Nick Koken threw a seven-inning no-hitter in the Colonials 17-0 win over Mt. St. Mary’s at Barcroft Park Thursday. The right-hander struck out six and did not walk a single batter his first collegiate win. Koken fell one pitch short of a perfect game- he hit the Mountaineers shortstop Jamion Christian with a pitch […]
