Spring break just isn’t the same

Amber Burse The Corsair Spring break is supposed to be an exciting time for students to relax and take a much needed mini-vacation away from doing school work. However, for spring-breakers, not much traveling was done this year. I polled thirty-two students and only one had plans to leave Pensacola for spring break. Most of...

The best don’t always win – March Madness

Tim Ajmani The Corsair The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament is arguably the most exciting three weeks in basketball in America. The upsets. The extraordinary individual performances.

Tim’s Midseason NBA Awards Predictions

Tim Ajmani The Corsair With All-Star weekend right around the corner, the 2011-2012 NBA season is about halfway done. Of course, this is no ordinary season; the lockout forced teams into a condensed sixty-six game schedule. The quality of basketball has degraded considerably.

The next Tim Tebow is here

Tim Ajmani The Corsair My final line in the Tim Tebow article that I wrote last September referenced the fact that Tebow’s blown-up image of the “perfect” person created by the media would cause a certain backlash.

Tim Ajmani The Corsair One of my favorite movies is “The Dark Knight” in the rebooted Batman series. The “Joker” said in that movie to Batman that “there’s no going back, you’ve changed things…forever”. How fitting are those words, especially when it comes to social media these days.

Adriana Dueck The Corsair  This weekend I was relieved of my usual duties as News Editor and graced with the opportunity to cover an event for work; the grand re-opening of the Open Books bookstore in downtown Pensacola.  When I arrived, pen in hand and camera safely tucked into my purse I thought I would...

Tim’s reaction to Super Bowl XLVI

Tim Ajmani The Corsair Last summer, the NFL owners and NFLPA embarrassed themselves in arguments during the NFL lockout. In those four plus months of skepticism, many fans of the most popular sport in America wondered if there would even be season. Tonight, those same fans are applauding and jumping for joy. In stunning fashion,...
