The cold does not stop soccer

Team Furia Latlna took
on the Fluffy Chickens Mon-
day night during an outpour
of confused weather that left
fans furious and frozen. Furia
scored two goals in the first
half thanks to an offensive ef-
fort by Sean Ancheta and Paulo
Tenorio. The Fluffy Chickens
had many opportunities to get
on the scoreboard, but Furia
goalie Jimmy Gains wouldn't
allow anything past him. Furia
went on to win 2-0.
I Furia is the new team to
beat after defeating the fa-
vored Masanga Boys on Sun-
day's make-up game.

"Our team usually passes
the ball very well," said Teno-

rio, a senior religious studies
major. "Today we actually

In the women's division,
the Fluffy Roosters played
against Fantasy Futbol. The
Roosters played with heart
despite missing a few of their
players but Fantasy Futbol's
offense was brutal and scored
seven goals by the end of the
game. Roosters' captain, Dan-
ielle Baasch, played in a sling
after having surgery on her
arm and still managed to score
one of the team's two goals.

"I usually play goalie but I
couldn't because of my arm,"
said Baasch, senior, a senior
music major. "My team still
played well though."

Fantasy Futbol won 7-2.

Many winners in benchpress contest

Zack Livingston
Sports Editor

Students from all over cam-
pus flocked to the boy's dorm
lobby on Monday night to get
a glimpse of the buffest and
boldest men on campus. Talge
Hall hosted its annual bench
press competition that had the
lobby packed with students
cheering for their friends and
significant others. All year
long the guys have been train-
ing to lift 250, 300 or 350 lbs
in order to receive a bench
club t-shirt and the awe of ev-
ery female watching.

Fourteen men were able to
lift 250 lbs, but only two were
able to lift 300 lbs. Hubert
Maitland, a freshman music
education major, and Joshua

Walker, a sophomore con-
struction and architectural
draftings major, were the only
two to power up the massive
plates to an applause from
the crowd.

There were many excuses
for those who couldn't lift as
much as they thought they
could and some power bench-
ers completely missed the
competition. Whatever the
case may be, two under class-
men are now classified as the
strongest benchers on South-
ern's campus.

"I think this year went well
considering all the people that
showed up to support all of
the participants," said Shayne
Aris, a spotter for the contest.
"Some people went home hap-
py and some just have to try
next year."

What makes a MVP valuable

Davis Wallace

rlwaHar-pr asnnrhpm >

There are many different
awards in the National Basket-
ball Association, none more as
coveted than the Most Valu-
able Player. This prestigious
award is usually given to the
individual that has meant the
most to his ball club. Howev-
er, as of late it seems like the
MVP goes to the best player on
the best team.

During the 2001-2002 sea-
son, the Sacramento Kings
finished the year with a NBA-
best 61-21 record. Injuries
limited Sacramento's star
power forward Chris Webber
to only 54 games. That same
year the San Antonio Spurs
and Los Angeles Lakers fin-
ished with identical records
(58-24). Seven-foot Spurs
power forward Tim I)uncan
started and played in all 82
games, averaging 25.5 points
and 12.7 rebounds per game.
While for the Lakers, center
Shaquille O'Neal played in 67
games, averaging 27.2 points

and 10.7 rebounds per game.
Over in the lowly Eastern Con-
ference, newly acquired New
Jersey Nets point guard Jason
Kidd turned around an awful
Nets team from 26 wins to 52
wins in one season, also play-
ing in all 82 games, averaging
14.7 points, 7.3 rebounds and
9.9 assists per game. Although
he led the Nets to one of their
greatest turnarounds in fran-
chise history, Kidd did not win
the MVP that year. The award
went to Duncan.

This year, it seems like the
Cleveland Cavaliers and the
Los Angeles Lakers are the
top two teams in their respec-
tive conferences. If everything
goes according to plan, the
Cavs will have the best record
in the league and James will
win his first MVP. It is hard
to vote against LeBron James
since he is averaging 28.4
points, 7.7 rebounds and 7.2
assists per game along with a
flawless one-loss home record.
Some writers might consider
him the best player on the best
team, however there is a young
fellow in Orlando named

Dwight Howard, averaging
21.1 points per game, NBA-
leading 14 rebounds and 3
blocks per game, whose name
is also in the running. Not only
that but he has played most of
the season without star point
guard Jameer Nelson who is
out with a shoulder in 1 iry.

I personally belie e that
the NBA and these writers
should be done with this "the
best player on the best team"
rule. If I was going to award
the league MVP to someone,
I would base my decision on
three questions. First, how
many games did you win this
year compared to the last?
Secondly, how efficient are
your stats and, third, how
many games would your team
have won if you were not in
the lineup? If some of these
writers put more thought into
my three questions, then we'd
have different MVPs in the
past. Kidd would have won in
2002, Kobe Bryant in 2006
and Steve Nash in 2007. May-
be even Howard over James
for MVP this year.

Sometimes, for those who
hve in places like Los Ange-
les, Atlanta or New York it is
a common occurrence to see a
famous celebrity walking down
the street. But I didn't know
that Southern was another hot
spot iot wanting-to-be-out-of-
celebrities! Just the other day
I saw four celebrities in one
hour! . Thankfully, I had my
camera on me and I snapped a
few candids, ya dig? However,
after some careful scrutiny,
I began to doubt that these
were the actual, true celebri-
ties. Malcolm's beanpole body
was replaced with a strapping,
more muscular one; Linguini's
goofy-grin-plastered face was
replaced with a calm, cool and
collected one that resonated

intelligence; Frodo's— I mean,
Harry's I'm-better-than-you,
cool-guy demeanor with a big,
square face was replaced with
a down-to-earth, easy-to-be-
around attitude with a much
better looking face; and oT
Grizzy's overgrown beard and
hair was replaced with a much
more suave and well-trimmed
beard that better accented his
seemingly wiser face. It was
then that it hit me: These were
Southern students (and fac-

The next thought that hit me
was to ask them their thoughts
on how closely resembling, and
yet better looking they were
than the celebs. Here are the
photos that I snapped and their
own comments beneath so that
you can see what I found out.

Whatever the case, the truth
of the matter was plainly evi-
dent. Our school may house
more than a few celebrity look-
alikes, but we certainly house
the better looking half of the

SonRise attracts 10,000 spectators

Emily Young

Managing Editor
emi1wniinpiBsmit>n>m on,,

On Saturday, almost 300
Southern students and more
than 600 ' community mem-
bers volunteered to make the
fourteenth annual SonRise
pageant a reality, said Sherrie
Williams, assistant director of

The pageant started in 1996
as a ministry to the commu-
nity. It is held each year on
Easter weekend, and it chron-
icles the events leading up to
the crucifixion and resurrec-
tion of Christ.

This year more than 10,000

people walked through the
play in 13 different showings,
said Ingrid Skantz, execu-
tive director of SonRise. She
has been involved with Son-
Rise for 12 years, and has
served as executive director
for seven years.

"We had an excellent at-
tendance and have received
positive feedback," Skantz
said. However, she added that
a good turnout is not most
important. "Success to me is
when SonRise becomes a tool
for the Holy Spirit to prompt
a life-changing experience...
It is hard to gauge whether
we have been successful at
heart matters that are not so

easily counted."

Other volunteers agreed.
The night before the pageant
Andy Compton, who was one
of the six people to play the
role of Jesus and has been in-
volved in SonRise for 12 years,
told cast members, "If we just
touch one person we've done
our jobs."

SonRise not only affected
spectators, but cast members
as well.

For Ben Smith, a senior
biology major who also played
Jesus this year, being a cast
member of SonRise is a pow-
erful experience.
