First and foremost the topic that is in the front of everyones mind, MARCH MADNESS, and the current leaders of the Intramural Bracket. For the Men’s Division there are 3 competitors who are tied for first with a point possibility of 157. Those individuals are Mitch Herr (Pike), Baker Dodge (SAE), and Cam Lackey (EX). So, congratulations to those guys for having the best bracket so far. As for the Women’s Division, the top 3 leading ladies are Emily Lanman (Phi Mu), Kayla Foster (Kappa Delta), and the IMREC Computer is currently in third.

Now that you know who is leading the 2011 Intramural NCAA Bracket Challenge let’s discuss SPORTSMANSHIP. Many websites define good sportsmanship and bad sportsmanship, I found many of these definitions very elementary. If you don’t know what good sportsmanship is, GOOGLE it @ google.com If you would like to see some bad examples of sportsmanship follow this link. So, please keep respect at a high level as you need a 3.0 to advance into the playoffs. That goes for both soccer and basketball. Participants, one reminder, keep paying close attention to e-mails from imleagues.com and if you have any questions please contact the intramural office at (270) 745-6060.

The Intramural Basketball League tiped offed Sunday, Feb. 13, with little to no problems. That’s right I said “PROBLEM” and it’s a big one we need to deal with. The big concern on the minds of everyone involved with this sport are the “JERSEYS” or aka “PENNIES”. Here are a few issues with these numbered mesh rags.

1.) They never have your favorite number and your forced to play as a linemen wearing number 84.

2.) Your the last one to sign in on your team and you get stuck with one that feels like it was just soaked in a tub.

3.) The pennies are too small and too short. So, if your a towering giant, you get a belly shirt, and if your not skinny you’re given a sports bra.

4.) The pennies/jerseys are only washed once a day so if you play during the last hour, good luck finding the clean ones… or one… if any.

5.) And lastly, they are beginning to only use red and white pennies (promoting school spirit)

After hearing the top 5 problems participants have with jerseys/pennies, I will provide tips on how to avoid these problems, and how you can make the most of your intramural experience.

1.) Show up two hours before your game and wash a batch of pennies yourself. That gives you 30 minutes for a quick wash, 45 minutes to dry, and plenty of time to get your lay up line going.

2.) Sign up in the league that always has the first or second games. Don’t get stuck in a late hour or you get the pennies that feel like they were used by our water polo team.

3.) The easiest way to avoid the pennies and their problems is to get together as a team and throw up some cash for cheap matching t-shirts. If you do this your able to avoid sweat from other participants, you get your favorite number, and you avoid wearing something that looks like you got it from the baby gap.

Readers, you heard it here first. The top 5 problems and the 3 best ways to fix your jersey problems. I hope to see brightly colored t-shirts with amazing designs and a lack of use in the penny department. But hey, if you like the pennies, should it really stick to just red and white. I would love to hear your input, feedback, or crazy penny/jersey story.

The  Badminton World Federation President, Kang Young Joong, missed an outstanding outing this past weekend. Doubles teams on the campus of WKU took to the courts of Preston as if it were a fight for their life. These warriors would stop at nothing to win this years doubles tournament. In all of my years of recreational badminton tournaments I had never seen the shuttlecock fly with such fury. Vijayeandra Parthepan & Anoop Rao Paidipally proudly carried home the victory of men’s championship honors. As for the women’s division, Zimple Kurlawala & Soniya Marwaha, demolished every competitor insight. This dynamic duo was untouchable and crowned as champions of the women’s division. These four badminton players will go down in my personal record book of worlds greatest badminton players. Kang Young Joong, you truly missed a heroic battle of bests.

The next sport to take place is the intramural basketball league. The deadline is today, Feb. 7, so be sure to sign up on imleagues.com.
