What can we do to improve Hopkins culture? It is a constant question in the minds of the Hopkins administration as well as the Student Government Association (SGA). College is supposed to be about having fun and making friends, even if we are here mainly to get a degree.
Hopkins volleyball hosted the Greg "Gio" Giovanazzi Memorial Tournament this past weekend, playing three teams and winning every match. Two of the matches were as usual for the Jays, winning in straight sets against Muskingum University and Birmingham-Southern College. However, against Virginia Wesleyan University they went to five sets, and the last set, which is normally played to 15, was played until 23 because of an enormous amount of deuces.
National Football Conference (NFC) Favorites:
The women’s and men’s tennis teams kept their undefeated statuses, each winning all nine of their respective matches against the Gettysburg College Bullets.
Julian Edelman, the best Patriots receiver over the last decade, retired on Monday, April 12. He has three Super Bowl rings and a Super Bowl Most Valuable Player trophy. He is probably one of the best seventh-round picks of all time, up there behind Bo Jackson and Shannon Sharpe. He deserves a lot of props. But he does not deserve to be in the Hall of Fame.
The Hopkins baseball team dominated in their doubleheader against conference rival the McDaniel College Green Terror this past weekend. In total, Hopkins scored 14 runs and had four homers. McDaniel, on the other hand, scored a total of four runs.

The Blue Jays lost an absolute heartbreaker to the University of Maryland (UMD) Terrapins in overtime with a final score of 9-8. The game was as close as the score was, and even in the loss there were a couple of individual standout performances.
The men’s lacrosse team took on the University of Maryland Terrapins on March 6. The game started off fairly even, and then the Terrapins broke loose in the third quarter, scoring nine unanswered goals through early into the fourth quarter.
The NBA is the only major sport to have a notable player as its logo. Jerry West is currently the man on every stadium, every jersey, every T-shirt and every press release made by the NBA. It is an amazingly unique position to be in as a former player, and it is also a symbol of how the NBA is incredibly player-centered.
Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald won his third NFL Defensive Player of the Year (DPOY) Award this season. But right after he won, J.J. Watt, also a three-time DPOY, and many others took to social media to advocate for his younger brother, Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt.
Bradley Beal is the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) leading scorer, averaging four points per game more than Kevin Durant, who is second, and he plays even fewer minutes than KD. Beal is also currently playing out of his mind on the worst team in the NBA. The Washington Wizards are very bad at the sport of basketball. They have one of the worst defenses in the NBA, probably second only to the Brooklyn Nets. Unlike the Nets, the Wizards do not have three superstars or seemingly the ability to produce a 200-point game at will.
About a month ago, the National Football League (NFL) approved a new adjustment to their compensatory pick formula. Now, any team that develops a minority head coach or general manager for another team gets an extra third-round pick. For example, say the Chiefs’ Offensive Coordinator Eric Bieniemy becomes a head coach next year; the Chiefs will get an extra third-round pick in the following draft.
Let’s face it: Players are more important than coaches. Don’t get me wrong; coaches are a nice side piece, but they aren’t the ones who spend hours upon hours training to get in shape. Simply put, players have the onus of executing on the field.
You know that feeling when you look around Hop and feel incredibly detached from what life was like at home? Then your mind shifts back, and you remember your home friends, your family, your spot on the couch and that one food you love that just doesn’t taste the same in Baltimore (currently missing good pizza). It's a warm nostalgia trip that I think everyone experiences just a little bit. Every once in a while, I really crave that warmth of home, so I find an incredibly legal website to watch movies and throw on My Cousin Vinny.
Remember when the Houston Astros cheated their way into a World Series ring? Well, this season, the Astros and their fanbase used a brand-new, never-before-seen rallying cry: us against the world.
Grow the game. This has been the unofficial motto of professional lacrosse for several years now.
The Tennessee Titans and the Pittsburgh Steelers did not partake in National Football League (NFL) action this past Sunday. Now they are matching up against each other in Week Seven because 13 players have tested positive for COVID-19.
