Put Down the Haterade and Hater Tots....

By: T.R. Slyder,

My High School was listed as the 1090th best High School in the US.

Conspicuously, the nearest high school to where I live was 107th, second in the State of Illinois.

Coincidence? Probably.

In other TR Slyder Alma Mater news, I'd like to salute Max Goodman.

In the July 2009 issue of Esquire Magazine (on newsstands now with Bar Rafaeli on the cover), Mr. Goodman wrote into the style Q&A section called "Ask Nick Sullivan", and Mr. Goodman asks,

"Like many 19-year old college students, I spill on myself a lot. When liquor is involved, it
gets bad. What are the best fabrics for going out

-Max Goodman
Oxford, Ohio.

Glad to hear the traditions at Mother Miami are alive and well. My recommendation would be to avoid dark alcohol and mixers, Max. Gin and Tonics, Vodka Tonics, and Tequila ought to do you proud. You may also think about selecting darker clothing. Some would glibly suggest that you try to cut back on your alcohol intake, but not me, fellow RedHawk. Not me.

UPDATE/Editor's Note: When you do a Google Image search with keywords, "Miami University" in quotation marks followed by "Drunk", the first picture is of Bagel and Deli, the pic displayed above. Good work for getting it right, Google! You really do understand Miami U.

I just read a few prominent news websites.......

Boston University's hockey team has not denied funding for the Somali pirates!

Nowhere did I read that they denied it!

That means they probaly funded them!!! Ho. Lee. CRAP.

Is there no end to their depravity?


Passing This Along As Well

By: T.R. Slyder,

Alumni Mailing List has its priveleges.

Be on hand to welcome the only non-satanic NCAA Finalists in the the 2009 Men's Hockey Tournament! The only finalists who can enjoy the afterlife without getting BF'd by Satan! You know, some people's life decisions really disgust and saddens me (I'm looking at you Boston University, if, in fact, your hockey team is still affiliated with that school).

Congratulations to your Miami RedHawks, the 2009 Men's Ice Hockey National Champion Runner-Up.

Fans are encouraged to meet at the Goggin Ice Center to greet the team upon arrival in Oxford on Sunday, April 12, at approximately 11:30 a.m. ET (Oak Street entrance).

Boston University is Full of Satanists

By: T.R. Slyder,

It's obvious what BU did in order to beat Miami University for the National Championship on Saturday. They made a deal with Satan himself. Anyone who watched the game knows perfectly well that's the only explanation for that.

Here we were, the Miami faithful, just trying to compete in some honest gamesmanship in a sportsmanlike way, and we were competing against satanists! Well, I mean, if it's THAT important to you, BU, then you should have it. We wouldn't want to interfere with that.

But I just hope it was worth it, Boston University. I mean sure, that trophy will look mighty shiny in your trophy case, but is an eternity of sodomy in the fiery bellows of hell, while Jefferey Dahmer, Hitler and Stalin point and laugh, really worth it? Is it? I guess you'll have an eternity to think of an answer to that question. While you're getting BF'd.

Congratulations on an honest effort, Miami University Redhawks. At least you still own your souls. You are the real winners here today.

P.S. Sex with Satan? Really Boston University? That just seems gauche to me.

All I Want For Christmas

By: T.R. Slyder,

This year I am asking for only one thing. I want Miami University Head Mens's Basketball coach, Charlie Coles to FINALLY come out with his own line of Charcoal. When your name is CHARlie COLES, and you coach in the obesity belt of the midwest, you just have to do it. You have to. As a proud alum I'd gladly buy it exclusively. Do the right thing, Charlie.

What's up with the Miami University Shirts in this SNL sketch?

As a proud alumnus of Miami University I am concerned about SNL's portrayal. I visited a lot of classmates' parents' houses and only like 50% were like this. (Or wait. Maybe it was 0%. I majored in Psychology, cuz math isn't really my thing).

As far as I know, Miami U. has never been mentioned on Saturday Night Live. So it was doubly random that in last week's episode not only were two playersportrayed in a sketch as Miami freshman, but one of them was a member of a sexually bizarre household. Furthering the oddity, Miami University was never mentioned by name- the students simply wore Miami t-shirts.

Your thoughts?

P.S. If Miami's portrayal somehow implies that its reputation in academia is anything short of sterling, I would like to present this video to refute that assertion.

All you armchair academicians please note: When the camera fatass man was screaming, "This is going on Facebook, immediately.", he not only flaunted his computer literacy, but his grammar was flawless as well. Told you it was a good school.

P.P.S. When was the last time you witnessed a student body applaud more heartily at the very presence of law enforcement? Ostensibly, these students put aside their studies for 10 minutes or so one night, just to applaud the efforts of the Oxford P.D. and the Miami University P.D.. This is what people mean when they say "Midwestern Values".
