Stop The Presses:
I enjoyed reading a sports story this week. I know, I’m as surprised as you are. The first black athletes to earn scholarships at Duke did interviews with The Chronicle in honor of the 50th anniversary of their matriculating at Duke. Spoiler alert: they faced horrific racism. Can you believe that? Here, at our very own school? No but seriously, it’s a beautiful profile of these two football players, even if you don’t care about sports!
Eye of the Tiger:
To fill a hole in a team, the volleyball team recruited Andie Shelton as the program’s first graduate transfer, so she’s doing her master’s degree in one year (which is the real unsung accomplishment in this article) to play for Duke during her last year of eligibility. Also, her dad’s name is Tiger.
We Really Are Still Talking About This Kid’s Hair:
We really are! You may recall a few weeks ago we discussed basketball player Alex O’Connell’s hair. Well, folks, he’s back at it, this whole “having hair” thing, and debuted a Man Bun this week. We applaud him for bravely challenging traditional images of the masculine!
