Everyone really does play intramural sports

The Princeton Review recently released their rankings on a large number of student life related categories, and my alma mater Notre Dame popped up on a few. ND was ranked first in the Everyone Plays Intramural Sports category, which brought back fond memories of my illustrious interhall career, the pinnacle of which occured when my dorm won the Rec Sports Dorm of the Year trophy my senior year. The director made the mistake of handing the trophy off to the PW soccer team, who used the trophy as a beer receptacle at the team party that night, and later convinced the bartender at Club 23 to fill up the trophy with the sweet nectar of Bud Light. Some envious hooligans then stole the trophy from Club, and it was not recovered for several days. It was eventually returned to Rec Sports, only slightly damaged. Ahhh....I miss college. I do realize that bragging about past intramural sports successes is considered lame, but I don't care.

Whoa, we won that? Where the hell was I? Probably in line for friggin' Star Wars.

yeah, but maybe only the soccer players knew about it- we were the only ones at the banquet, and it was at the very end of the year. very Tri-Wizard cup, though.

Ahh glory days. Lucky for me, i can still brag about more recent accomplishments, in that, my spring football team won the "Best Drinking Team" award in the Zogg's: Play for Charity League. Isnt it nice to see how athleticism, alcoholism and charity can co-exist?
Looks like college intramural sports did prepare us for the real world.
