Maeve’s Music Mondays: Unboxing

So, here we are: at the beginning of what I believe will be a hopefully interesting, possibly odd, column. I can’t profess to know more than basic music theory, but I can promise my column will be ripe with the ramblings of a lifelong music-lover and shower-singer whose habitual humming, singing and lack-luster rapping skills somehow make her qualified to write for The Tufts Daily. 

Sharp from the Sofa: Sunday sermons

It might sound crazy to view watching football as a holy experience but I assure you that it is. Every year in September, the air begins to feel a little bit crisper, leaves start to change color and a layer of dew appears on the grass in the morning. You can feel that it’s football season. 

The Countdown: Time to panic

Though it ebbed between periods […]

The Turf Monster: Favorite 2020 moments

I’m gonna be blunt. 2020 has been awful for sports. Approximately two and a half months into the pandemic, every single league without exception closed its doors for the foreseeable future.
