Yo humpday, laterrrr

And the sun sets on the first chilly Wednesday of the year, leaving homecoming weekend just around the corner at Temple.

And, damn, was it a busy news day.

First, we finally got the facts straightened out about this whole Reese Witherspoon at Ambler thing. Turns out there was some bad information, and Reese will actually be there this coming Monday to shoot a scene for a new movie. However, according the blog where we are getting this information, security will be tight and you might need some binox just to catch a glimpse. And that would be creepy.

Secondly, here is the article on the woman who was robbed and sexually assaulted on Fontain(between 16th and 17th). She said the asshole had bad teeth. BAD TEETH! Once again, she was not a Temple student, but that makes no difference. Don't forget it's dangerous out there, keep your eyes open!

In other news, check out this Inquirer article about freshman running back Bernard Pierce. The story discusses BP's up-and-down background and how he came to be a rising star on the team. Did you know he is the first Temple freshman running back to ever run for 100 yards in three games? And we're only halfway through the season. Kid's got wheeeels.

Temple and its entrepreneurial journalist alums find the spotlight once again. This time it's Nieman Journalism Lab of Harvard writing about the guys over at, all of them Temple grads. For those interested in journalism start-ups, this is a must read article.

Wouldn't it be awesome if the Liacouras Center was the home turf of the Philadelphia Kixx soccer team? Well starting January 9, that's what it's gonna be. The indoor soccer team will play their eight home games at the LC, and season tickets are on sale now. Oléeeeeeeeee Oléeeee oléeee oléeeeee.

Peep this article about a local highschooler who is putting on a big time production for her first play. Her play, "Requiem for the Fallen" was selected from like 760 entries to get funding. What's this gotta do with Temple? Well the actors are all Temple undergrads, and the play will be at Tomlinson Theater this Friday and Saturday. That's what, smarty pants.

Finally, we have to apologize to the women's volleyball team for missing their 3-0 shwooping of La Salle last night. Way to kick some Big 5 ass, ladies.

Whew, more news than you can shake a stick at. Thanks for reading, we'll catch ya on THIRSTDAY!
