Sean Says: Everything happens for a reason

Sean Hastings, Sports Editor

January 25, 2018

When my family had to put down my first dog Bailey in November, I told myself that I would never get over it, nor would I want to ever get a new dog. My friend Dwight told me to not think about it as replacing Bailey, but as giving another dog the chance to have as great of a life as Bailey had. While...

Sean says: Watch out for perfect passes

Sean Hastings, Sports Editor

January 11, 2018

One of the most iconic Hail Mary’s of all time was Doug Flutie’s game-winning touchdown pass to help Boston College upset Miami in the ‘80s. More recently, there is Aaron Rogers’ game-wining 61-yard pass to beat the Lions in 2015 and Russell Wilson’s game-winning heave to beat the Packers,...

Netflix goofed by removing ‘Sunny’

Sean Hastings, Sports Editor

November 9, 2017

I am livid. Netflix has had more of a negative impact on my life than a positive one. Its latest jab at my life is saying it is going to remove “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” I will still have “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation.” But I am most upset about "Sunny." Where...

Sean Says: Blackhawks make a good costume

November 2, 2017

Halloween is a time to go all out. And as a senior in college, I finally embraced the weekend and actually did go all out. In previous years, I just threw something together last minute and ended up basically just doing the bare minimum. For this year’s get-up, I needed serious commitment from...

Sean Says: Show up for dodgeball, Kyle!

Sean Hastings, Sports Editor

October 5, 2017

Kyle is at it again. And this time, what he did means war. From the 4 a.m. fire alarm to the staining of our carpet because he spilled a crockpot, to waking me up at 1 a.m., this is by far the worst thing he has done. Worst part was, he thought we were all joking with him. Man, was he wrong. My...

Sean says: Don’t tip too far

Sean Hastings, Sports Editor

September 28, 2017

Nothing scares me more than the Chicago Cubs becoming TOO successful. I only say that because I watch way too much “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” and I saw what success did to “The Gang.” If you have not seen “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia,” it is essentially about five ragtag,...

Sean Says: Be careful around crockpots

Sean Hastings, Sports Editor

January 13, 2017

A crockpot can make some great food, but if you do not act properly around it, it can do some damage and my friend Kyle learned that the hard and hot way Wednesday night and my friends apartment. Kyle, you may remember, is the one who set off the fire alarm in Stevenson a few months back. This time...

Column: Sean Says: Spend money on things you love

Sean Hastings, Sports Editor

September 16, 2016

So lemme tell you this. Things can get expensive, and it always seems like the things that we want the most are the ones that society will look at as “things we don’t really need.” Forget what they think and do and buy the things you want that make you happy. I am not saying going out and spend...
