AFC East Preview

September 19th, 2015 by Brendan Pierce

Sports Saturday After week 1, the AFC East is the only division in football in which all 4 of the teams in the division opened their season 1-0. In a division that features the defending Super Bowl champion, New England Patriots, the AFC East has the potential to be one of the best in football. The Bills, Dolphins, and Jets all made significant upgrades to their roster this offseason and all four teams could make a run at the postseason. Here is my AFC East preview for the 2015 season.

The Bills brought in the likes of LeSean McCoy, Percy Harvin, Charles Clay, and of course the always entertaining Rex Ryan to be their head coach. They also have a new quarterback under center, former Virginia Tech standout Tyrod Taylor. Taylor has been the Ravens back-up quarterback the past 4 seasons, but got his first NFL start on Sunday leading the Bills to a statement victory over the Indianapolis Colts by a score of 27-14.

September 18th, 2015 by Allison Langley

one world cafe What: One World Café

Where: 100 W University Pkwy, Baltimore

When: 8am-2pm

Need a break from Starbucks? Same. That is why I went to One world Cafe! They have absolutely delicious baked good and their drinks are refreshing. I got a classic double chocolate chip muffin…amazing. They do not stop at baked goods though, sit down and enjoy a meal! One World makes its a very important part of their business to insure vegan and vegetarian oriented foods. They make this their mission to focus on this as a major part of their cafe. Stop by, get a coffee or ice tea with a, highly recommended, double chocolate chip muffin. You can sit inside in the cozy atmosphere and enjoy the a nice coffee house ambiance or sit onside while we still enjoy this beautiful weather! And for those night owls, One World Café is open until 2am! One World Café

St Paul & The Broken Bones Live 9/12/15

September 16th, 2015 by The Professor

Words & Photos by Katie Kazmierski ’18

saintpaul_rhl6 Paul Janeway of Saint Paul and the Broken Bones sauntered on stage in box-toed shoes almost more sparkly than the Rams Head lights. As he opened with the first song I knew that he wasn’t going to put on any ordinary old show, what with his incredible voice and an extremely talented band that compliments it.

Closing my eyes, I felt like I was transported back in time to the 60s when soul music was revolutionary. But instead of Otis Redding, opening my eyes I found Paul Janeway, who looks like just a normal guy—not someone you’d expect to have the extraordinarily powerful voice he does. Turns out he was once just that: a normal guy who worked as an Alabama bank teller. Lucky for us, he met current bassist Jesse Phillips (who Rachel interviews here!) in 2012 and together they embarked on a musical journey with the goal of making music that worked with Janeway’s smooth, soulful voice.
