Inglish on English: C = poser

Chelsea Inglish


I would hate to have to learn
English as a second language.
I'm sure it has got to be one of
the most annoying languages
to master! The spelling alone
would be enough to kill any
desires I had.

For instance, why don't the
words dough, cough, bough
and rough rhyme with each
other, instead of with the
words slow, off, cow and stuff,
respectively? Confusing. And
what about all those silent let-
ters, like in pneumonia and
know? If you ask me, silent
letters are just a mean way to
trick third graders in spelling

And what about the let-
ter C? What does a C sound
like, anyway? Sometimes
it sounds like a K and other
times it sounds like an S, and
if you put an H with it.'you get
a whole different sound. But
a C, in and of itself, has no
unique qualities whatsoever.
I'm rather ashamed of the let-
ter C, especially on papers.

Actually, there are reasons
why we have silent letters and
words that are spelled the
same and yet, mysteriously,
don't rhyme. It all goes back
into the early mists of time,
when the English language
was busy borrowing words
from other languages and
messing up the pronuncia-
tions, and then messing them
up again, and then again.

. Hats off to those of you
who have mastered English
as a second language! I know
I couldn't do it. Just ask Dr.
Parra, who tried very hard to
teach me Spanish, a language
which treats its newcomers
kindly, never trying to con-
fuse them with horrible little
poems about how to spell

"I before E, except after C,
and in sounding like A, as in

Brian Reagan, "On weekends

>ittsburgh vs. Arizona: A Super Bowl recap

.«< Wallace noints .. _ __ ■


For the second straight

ar, the Super Bowl ended

a dramatic fashion as the

[tsburgh Steelers defeated

j Arizona Cardinals 27-23.

Compared to last year's Su-

Bowl, there wasn't a lot

Mhype going into this game,

mwever, the players from

jth sides did not disappoint

a fans. Pittsburgh started

with the ball, drove down

and looked to be in con-

il from the get go. When

iy got on the goal line, Pitts-

rgh's Quarterback Ben Ro-

isberger ran it in for what

imed to be a touchdown.

Gwever, Arizona's Head

jach, Ken Whisenhunt threw

his risky challenge flag in

tope that the play would be

Sersed. Fortunately for him,

[re play was reversed so Pitts-

ffigh only settled for three


Arizona did not do a whole
lot on offensive; they got the
ball for five plays, and then gave
it right back to Pittsburgh. The
first quarter belonged to Pitts-
burgh who just dominated the
game on both sides of the ball.
Pittsburgh was able to punch
in a long drive for seven points
early in the second quarter to
extend the lead to 10. It was
a whole different story in the
second half for the Cardinals,
as Arizona Quarterback Kurt
Warner was able to drive his
young team up the field for a
touchdown to close the gap
to only three points. The key
moment of the game came
with only 18 seconds and it
looked like Arizona was going
tie the game, if not take a four
point lead. However, Steel-
ers' Linebacker and Defensive
Player of the Year, James Har-
rison was able to get his hands

on the ball, make a beautiful
interception and run a touch-
down back for a Super Bowl
record 100 yards. That gave
Pittsburgh a 10 point lead at

Most of the third quarter
was filled with penalties from
both teams, but mainly for the
Arizona side. There was one
drive where Arizona commit-
ted three personal fouls which
gave Pittsburgh more time to
do what they wanted to do.
In the fourth quarter, Pitts-
burgh was up by 13 points and
it seemed like the game was
coming to an end for the Car-
dinals. Nevertheless, Warner
rallied his team by throwing a
touchdown pass to WR Larry
Fitzgerald to bring the score
to 20-14. Later on the Ari-
zona defense were able to get
a holding penalty against an
end zone trapped Pittsburgh,
which resulted in a safety.

Players scramble for possession ofthi
With the score now down to
four and with less than three
minutes to play, it seemed like
Arizona was going to go in for
the kill. Fitzgerald turned a
20-yard catch into a 68-yard
touchdown that gave Arizona
a 23-20 lead with two minutes
and 37 seconds left.

Roethlisberger made what
will be known as his career de-
fying moment with a well run

two minute drill up the field
into the red zone. "Big Ben"
dropped back into the pocket,
looked left, then looked back
right, found his player maker
WR Santonio Holmes, who
made a gorgeous tip toe catch
in the end to win the game for
the Steelers. Just like they say
in the Wizard of Oz, there is
really no place like Holmes.

Southern has all-star weekend

Davis Wallace


Now that football season is
basically over, aside from the
NFL Pro Bowl next week, we
can focus our attention toward
the NBA. Sunday, Feb. 15 will
mark the 58th installment of
the NBA All-Star Game that
features the best from the
West going up against the best
from the East in a "bragging
rights game." At the moment,
Southern doesn't have a sports
team or any sports offered
here besides intramurals, but
that doesn't mean that we
can't compete in a "bragging
rights game" as well. SA presi-
dential candidate, Bradford
Wise, has presented this idea
and strongly believes in turn-
ing this fantasy into a reality if
elected. Now that Rees Series
has been deleted and turned

into the playoffs, there is op-
portunity for such an idea.
This would not only be for bas-
ketball, but for all the sports
offered here at Southern in-
cluding: Softball, flag football,
volleyball, floor hockey and
soccer. When asked why he
would present such an idea to
Southern, Bradford said, "In-
tramurals are one of the things
that make Southern great, and
I feel like all-star games will
increase the quality of the in-
tramural experience."

So as you get ready for the
three point contest and dunk
contest later today, try to pic-
ture an all-star game to go
along with what is already a
very strong intramural pro-
gram. Some may find it hard
to make the cut for a specific
all-star team in a sport, so
skills challenge events would

also be provided for those stu-
dents to participate. This idea
would create a similar effect
to MLB's Home Run Derby,
or NFL's QB's Challenge for
all the different sports of-
fered here at Southern. So as
you prepare for the Pro Bowl
this coming weekend and you
see Peyton Manning throw
50-yard bombs, just imag-
ine yourself in Southern's
Intramural Pro Bowl game
throwing 60-yard bombs. If
basketball is your sport, then
watch when the NBA All-Star
Game comes in two weeks and
Chris Paul makes one of his
no look passes. Picture your-
self, picture doing that here at
Southern's Basketball All-Star
Game. If they can have fun
playing a meaningless game in
the pros, why can't we do the
same thing at Southern?
