or rather do the crow’s nest in, from the back seat, as Pod eases through a sea of drunk Greek assholes and wenches. Then later, get out among your people and cop some feels.

Today is the 140th anniversary of the founding of Phi Sigma Kappa. Brotherhood, Scholarship and Character, and all that.
Scholarship? In my case, that happened AFTER I stepped away.
Character? Us? Yes. Afterwards? Not so much…
I was also not at Waldo’s, nor were people walking around naked on dares.
It’s a shame, really, because that would have been a better day than the one that actually happened. Stupid REM sleep. So much promise; so little delivery.
Mmmm winter. Time to party in the student ghetto. Pod knows of a cozy little bash. Ever the nonchalant one, he sidles up to all the pretty girls at school as if he’s known them forever. Phid, on the other hand, has more of an end game approach. He gets more, earlier; Pod’s are more loyal down the road. They brought you because: you’re buds, there’s more than enough to go around, you can be wingman for both and maybe one of the babes has a desperate friend or an appropriately low standards.
It’s Fall 1983. If you had bothered to attend class, this should have been the start of your junior year in college. Instead, it’s your first semester back:
- back in school (but it’s at a community college)
- back home, after a year of unspeakable horrors in the Phi Sigma Kappa house.
- The BK Lounge is in the rear view mirror (hopefully permanently) for the first school year since 1979.
October means Homecoming. At Western, that means a loss to the fighting David Lettermans of Ball State. It also means time to party.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Senior weakside linebacker Brandon Herron (Stafford, Texas/Dulles) became the first Wolverine in school history to post two defensive scores in a single contest, helping lead the University of Michigan football to a 34-10 win over Western Michigan in the 2011 season opener, which was declared final with 1:27 in the third quarter due to weather on Saturday (Sept. 3) inside Michigan Stadium. The victory is head coach Brady Hoke‘s first at the helm of the Michigan program.
In the spring of 1989, I sheepishly returned to the College of Arts and Sciences with hat in hand, begging for forgiveness for the nuclear wasteland of my first two semesters, and the subsequent years of minimum wage bullshit and the Meister Brau diet and living the Blutarsky lifestyle with the bare minimum amount of community college classes needed to stay eligible and avoid paying rent.

My proud examples:
Frank. Frank was an ordinary dude with a job at First of America. I thought he was entitled to god-status as the big dude of the chapter. He came through the drive through at the BK Lounge. I piled him up with chicken sandwiches and extra fries.
Karma: Then you called him a chicken for driving a Toyota Celica. Nice. Dumbass.
Frank was there for a couple of years.
