Not-so-thirsty Thursday.

Slow news day for Thursday, however...

The Temple News had a nice editorial on the ongoing contract struggles between the University and the teacher's unions, particularly TAUP. It's pretty bad when the students are the ones who have to call for mediation and more constructive efforts by the "grown-ups."

Also, a turkey on campus. What's he doing here?

In TU sports, the softball games @ ambler were cancelled, and the men's and women's track teams competed at the Penn Relays, more details on that tomorrow.

However, the Flyers picked up a 3-0 win over those damn Pittsburgh Penguins to close the series to 3-2. The Flyers return to philly on Saturday for game 6.

In a bit sadder sports news , Marianne "Mimi" Carroll-Kurtz, a Temple women's basketball star in the mid-80s, passed away from cancer at the age of 44. Carroll-Kurtz set the Temple women's b-ball record by scoring over 1,200 points, and is a member of both Temple and the Big Five's hall of fame.

You stay classy Temple, we'll see ya in the morning.
