Hit the links in the Brown Rec Golf Tournament

A college-aged Tiger Woods playing in the Brown Rec Golf Tournament. He finished twelfth, behind champion Josiah Carberry Jr. ’99.

If you’re anything like me (and I hope you are), you’re sitting around in your post-Spring Weekend hangover/doldrums wondering when the next bit of campus-wide fun might be occurring. “Oh no,” you may be thinking to yourself, “nothing good is happening until Senior Week, and I’m not even staying for that.” What you’re forgetting, of course, is that the 13th annual Brown Recreational Golf Tournament will be played at Agawam Hunt Course on Friday, May 3 (during reading period). For $40, you get 18 holes, a golf cart, free food, and prizes. It’s a pretty sweet deal. Enter with three friends as a four-person scramble team, show up Friday morning, and the rest is taken care of. So what are you waiting for? All the cool kids are doing it. Just sign up here and put your fun-seeking mind at ease. You’re welcome.

Sixth Man: Intramural Hoops

All the loyal readers of this column out there (hi, mom and dad!) might agree that last week’s post, an open letter to head basketball coach Mike Martin ’94, was a high point in professionalism and gravitas for Sixth Man. In the interest of balance, then, this week will mark a low point. I confess, dear readers, that I was too busy this weekend raging face catching up on The Wire to catch any of our many exciting sporting events.

Final Score: Scorgasms 37, Schrodinger’s Balls 24 (score approximate, forgot to write it down until a few hours later)

Recap: The Scorgasms, a group of eight seniors (including a girl, the only championship team to have one), used their superior outside game and non-receding hairlines to triumph over the physics grad students representing Schrodinger’s Balls. Schrodinger’s Balls gameplan of “give it to our one bearded big guy, Beardsie” was eventually detected and neutralized by the four Scorgasms who quadruple-teamed Beardsie, helping the Scorgasms pull away in the second half.

They Said It (Winner Edition): “I’m glad I won a[n intramural champion] shirt as a senior. Definitely on my bucket list.”–Wooyoung Moon ’13

They Said It (Loser Edition): “We don’t want to be quoted.”–Beardsie [grad year unknown]

They Said It (Ref Edition): “It was well-fought. I feel like [The Scorgasms] don’t even belong in the low division. They were pretty adept. They definitely deserved it.”–Danny Ecehvarria ’16, referee Continue Reading
