Sports news highlight weekend

Hello fellow Owls, and welcome back to the week. Hopefully you all had a fun and citation-free weekend, and were able to enjoy some of the sports victories that went down this weekend.

Speaking of which, Temple football friggin won! Check below for highlights. And not only did they win on a pretty nice day down at the Linc, they killed 'em too, 37-13. And our boy Elijah "Peanut" Joseph,(Yup, Peanut) interception TD return came in at number 9 on SportsCenter's top 10 plays.

Lincoln Financial was the lucky field this weekend, as the Eagles also killed the Kanas City Chiefs by a very similar score, 34-14. And Vick didn't do shit.

Oh, and LOL @ PSU.

Not to be out done, the men's soccer team also took down a very good Hartford team 2-1, with all American J.T. Noone picking up two assists.

In still more sports news, check out this article about Temple Alum Candice Dupree making her way onto the national women's basketball team.

Ever wonder what it would be like to live with your parents at college? Check out this amazing article about Temple student Rob Wunder III, who was tragically paralyzed diving into a pool a few years back. His Dad is putting everything on pause to live with him four nights a week at college(1300, we believe) in order to help him obtain an education. Best of luck to both of them. All with a sense of humor too:
"It's nothing anybody else wouldn't do for their kids," said Wunder, a former high school football coach built like a linebacker, with kind, sparkling blue eyes and an easy smile.It's a big sacrifice for him to put up with me being here.

His son, 19, a husky 6-foot-3 with dark-rimmed glasses, a beard, and a mustache, chimed in: "I have to put up with him. He has to put up with me."

In other news, Temple's questionable policies regarding alcohol continue to get some press. Peep this article from Haverford and Bryn Mawr's newspaper titled "Haverford's Alcohol Policy Better than Everyone Else's". Despite that awful title, the article makes some good points about how Haverford's emphasis on personal responsibility is a little better than Temple's strict, zero-tolerance, high-fine policy. Then again, they're not a campus of 12,000 living in the middle of North Philly.

Ya, that's about all this weekend's news. Check back in a little bit/tomorrow morning for your weekly outlook.
