Finding a balance between romantic and corny is a tough task, and doing it on a budget is even harder. Gentlemen, if you’re looking to do something sweet but simple with the girlfriend on Valentine’s Day, why not take a blast from the past and throw on your favorite romantic sports movie to put her…

Family rivalry in the stands

By | Nov 10, 2010

There’s a reason why parents’ weekend and the Cortaca Jug don’t fall on the same date. For most Ithaca College and SUNY-Cortland students, having your parents come up for arguably the biggest party weekend of the year would be a letdown. But the Musarra family has no boundaries.

By | Nov 3, 2010

Intense fans are a staple across sports — whether it’s the New York Yankees’ “Bleacher Creatures” or the Green Bay Packers’ “Cheeseheads.” At Ithaca College, one of the most dedicated fan bases isn’t for one of the typically considered “major” sports, though.

By | Oct 28, 2010
