Cheap Sports For All Sorts

As prices rise for all the fun things in life, sometimes it’s nice to have a Student ID.  And this post highlights several of those great opportunities.  Major teams in Ohio and Pennsylvania are advertising great pricing on tickets to students.  We’ll highlight some of them today.

Browns Excursion for Marietta College Students

College Union Board is taking a busload of students up to Cleveland Browns Stadium on October 3 for their division match-up against the Cincinnati Bengals.  A $20 ticket can be purchased in the Student Activities office in Andrews Hall.  The ticket will get you on a charter bus up to the game, a ticket to the game itself, and transportation back to Marietta when the game is complete.  Bus leaves at 9 AM on the 3rd.

This is a great opportunity for MC students to go see an NFL game for a very low price.  Instead of paying anywhere between $30 and $50 in gas for your car and anywhere between $40 to $60 for a ticket, you are only paying $20.  Take advantage while you can.  Tickets are going fast.

Long Blue Line Now Includes NL Manager of the Year

Jim Tracy, Manager of the Colorado Rockies, was announced as Major League Baseball’s National League Manager of the Year today.

Tracy, a 1978 graduate of Marietta College, led the Rockies to the post season after taking being promoted from bench coach in May.  The Rockies had an 18-28 record with their old coach, but had a record of 74-42 for the rest of the season with Tracy.  He received 29 first place with 151 points and blew out St. Louis Cardinals Manager Tony La Russa, who finished second with two first place votes and 55 points overall.

Maybe we’ll see him here at some point to speak?  Or am I being too hopeful here?

New MC Website Brings New Direction

As in new content that will be updated throughout the year. The new Marietta College website will actually be somewhere that students will want to visit.  The site launched with six feature articles, including the following:

The idea seems to be to incorporate the past, present, and future all into one nice package.  Visual appearance has improved greatly, with large images and prominently featured 175th anniversary logos.  Content is more easily accessed and easily added/updated.

According to a press release from Tom Perry, the Director of College Relations, we should expect anywhere from 4-8 articles a month, which should keep things fresh and interesting.

As a side note, we have been recognized by the college as a local news outlet, which is a huge step for us.  We will continue to provide a look at Marietta College from the student’s perspective.  Writing on the Mall is still a student owned and operated blog…just expanding our readership and promoting our wears.
