Who is the Best of the Best?

October 24th, 2015 by Brendan Pierce

 Sports SaturdayFor the first time since 1970, 5 NFL teams will be undefeated entering week 7. The Bengals, Broncos, Packers, Panthers, and Patriots are the lone remaining teams without a loss and all 5 of them have a legitimate chance of raising the Lombardi Trophy come February.

We know what Andy Dalton and company can do during the regular season, but the real question for the Bengals is, can they get the job done during the post-season? Dalton has made the playoffs in each of his first 4 years in the league however, he is 0-4 in the post-season. This is a different Bengals team. They are incredibly balanced on offense with a thunder and lightning rushing attack with Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard, as well as a prolific passing attack featuring A.J Green. With the exception of the Ravens game, Green has been relatively quiet so far this season. It is the emergence of guys like Tyler Eifert and Marvin Jones that have really added another dimension to this offense. Eifert specifically has been extremely effective in the red zone hauling in 6 touchdowns leading all tight ends. This Bengals team certainly has the weapons to keep up with the elite teams in the AFC. Read the rest of this entry »

DJ Spotlight: Legends of Rock Album Review

October 23rd, 2015 by Rachel

white snake album cover Whitesnake’s new album The Purple Album, released earlier in 2015, shows that after a 35+ year career, they still have relevance today, and are still very talented. This album shows the band’s musical flexibility, with styles ranging from metal, to soft rock, to their more familiar classic rock feel. It should be said that I am only really familiar with their more commercially successful songs, specifically Still of the Night and Here I Go Again, so I am not aware of the band’s evolution in style over the years. However, this does give me a clear perspective on their skill and the quality of the music on this new album. Read the rest of this entry »

Artifact 2 What: Artifact Coffee

Where: 1500 Union Avenue, Baltimore

When: Monday-Tuesday 7am-5pm, Wednesday-Friday 7am-7pm, Saturday-Sunday 8am-7pm

The other day I woke up early and headed on over to Artifact Coffee before class. I am in love. In love with the atmosphere the food and the deliciously soothing tea that helped cure a sore throat! I sat down at a rustic table while the waiter brought me a carafe of water and placed down my lemon-green tea infuser with a cute blue tea cup and plate. I then scarfed down a breakfast sandwich, amazing, it was crunchy yet soft yet cheesy, ugh, everything you want in a sausage breakfast sandwich.

The All- American Rejects album “Move Along” was an album that gave the group honorable popularity. Their pop album topped the charts leading with their singles “Dirty Little Secret”, “Move Along”, and “It Ends Tonight”.
