The things that you need to know the most from this past weekend:
Varsity Field Hockey beat St. Stephen's & St. Agnes 1-0 Thursday. Idrienne Walker ('13) scored the only goal of the game which pushed Bullis past the defending ISL champions for the second straight year. The win puts them in great position to reach their goal of being crowned the ISL Champions.
Varsity Football remains undefeated after a big win this past Saturday at St. Stephen's & St. Agnes. The Bulldogs, now 6-0 on the season and 1-0 in conference play, had big days from running back Devonte Williams ('15) and quarterback Danny Copeland ('13). Unfortunately, Copeland left the game right before halftime with a broken left arm. Bullis hopes to battle through the injuries and continue their quest for a perfect season and another IAC championship.
Some of the most talked about stories from this past week include the debate over Question 7 in Maryland, the Nationals’ heartbreaking loss, and DC being ranked 3rd worst in national traffic polls.
In Maryland one of the big issues that will be voted on during the election will be Question 7. The question asks whether or not citizens want a casino built in Prince George’s County. Advertisements both supporting and attacking Question 7 have been running constantly and are almost unavoidable. A main point in favor of the casino is that it will create of thousands of jobs while an argument against it states that it will cause more people to become poor and dependent on government handouts.
The Washington Nationals lost last Friday 9-7 to the St. Louis Cardinals in the deciding game 5 of the NLDS. The Nats were up two runs going into the top of the ninth inning, but Nat's closer Drew Storen was unable to shut the door, giving up four runs. The Nat's were up by six runs at one point and it seemed they would be going on to the NLCS, but unfortunately, after the late inning collapse, Washington sports fans will have to wait another year for the Nationals to make a postseason run.
This past week, Washington D.C. area traffic was ranked the 3rd worst in the country. DMV area drivers drive an extra 80 hours behind the wheel. Wow!
The national news this past week was dominated with talks about the upcoming election.
This past Wednesday the Vice Presidential debate took place. Current Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan took center stage in Centre College in Danville, KY. It was a lively and argumentative debate with both men continuously interrupting each other. Unlike the debate between President Obama and governor Mitt Romney, this one did not have a clear winner.
Really?! Moment of the Weekend:
TOASTER IN THE DINING HALL!!!
