Spartan Training I

February 22, 2013

I. Spartan Training: The Commencement

I have never been incredibly fit in my life. I’ve never seen a six-pack of abs on me. In fact, for more than half of my life, I’ve been overweight (the ‘Glory Days’). In high school, I joined sports, but even then I never managed to reach a very remarkable level of fitness. Since being in college, I have not had any external motivation to get fit…until two weeks ago, when I, along with brothers and friends, made the decision to register for the Spartan Race in Pennsylvania on July 13, 2013. Accordingly, I established a ten-week training schedule, as well as a diet plan that I will be following. This article will be the first of a series of 5 romanticized articles that follow my progress.

This is Part 2 of our movie series.
Part 1: Hoosiers

By Andrew Mooney

By now, we’re all familiar with the story: In 1994, an alien spacecraft lands in a minor league ballpark in rural Alabama, delivering Birmingham Barons outfielder Michael Jordan just in time for the first pitch. Though team officials are initially upset about the booster-jet inflicted damage to the field, their shock melts away when the magnitude of what Jordan accomplished during his brief disappearance becomes apparent — the salvation of the Looney Tunes universe via basketball game, as documented in the 1996 film Space Jam.

Our concern here is with the game itself, which pitted Jordan and his cartoon friends against a team of alien invaders who’d stolen the abilities of Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, Larry Johnson, Muggsy Bogues, and — don’t ask me why — Shawn Bradley. Freedom was on the line. A Monstars victory…

The Collegiate Gourmand: Big Sandwich

Here is what I want consistently wherever I am, A BIG SANDWICH.  I miss the hoagies from back home. When I came to pitt I didn’t know what to expect out of the sandwich sector. One thing I knew for sure they had a sandwich shop, every college had one. I will let you know the criteria for my review of the big sandwich.

1.The bread- This I think is most important because if you have tough bread you better have the proportion of greasiness very high, yet if you have fresh bread you cannot beat it no matter what you have on it.

2.meat proportions- typically what I want on a sandwich is 20% ham/roast beef, 30% spicy (peperoni, Capicola), 30% salami/sopressata, 10% prosciutto, 10% corned beef/pastrami

3. Cheese- doesn’t matter whatever works

4. Toppings- Go crazy. This one place in Philly had a pepper spread that was delicious, tomatoes good, lettuce if not subway overdone good, hot and sweet peppers to taste I like them if the hot peppers don’t numb you taste buds, onions very very bad I hate onions they are too strong and you can’t taste the rest of the beautiful sandwich.


Here I find Campus deli I was not disappointed the first time I ordered from there because it was 2:00 and I was starving. What surprised me the first time was that they put Italian dressing with their greens. Now that was there cold cuts. To test again I ordered the Student and the senior. The student almost tasted like Chinese food with its chicken fingers and fries pepper jack cheese and Thousand Island dressing. I devoured it in seconds like always. It was warm and the fries and chicken were not greasy at all.  While the senior was disappointing by the amount of bread left after eating all the good stuff. After this satisfaction I thought I would go bold. So I ordered the largest sandwich The Mascot. I expected a hoagie but I got a sandwich this I did love I was set up like the student but with the added benefit of peperoni. This made a statement in my mind that Campus Deli is a small shop that does the little things right and stays consistent. I look forward to ordering more. Based on my scale of Big Sandwiches I give Campus Deli a 8 out of 10 Big Sandwiches. Would suggest anyone if they want a late night snack to order from them.

Asgard over and out.

Oakland Zoo Fans

Zoo folk,

We finally have what probably is the biggest game on the home schedule this coming Saturday vs #6 Syracuse. Not a top 5 opponent, but a top 10 opponent almost as good. There’s a couple of things we wanted to let you guys know of so you can be aware…

1. The Pete opens at 5 am on Saturday to let folks in. We’ve had many many people ask us what time to get in line for “good” seats. That’s entirely up to you. We can almost guarantee you will not be the first in line if you stroll up to the Pete at 5 am though. We’ve had folks asking about tenting on Friday night, and the athletic department told us they’d “rather have students just come at 5 am”. Take that whatever way you want to.

2. Everyfan in the building will receive a gold shirt…
