Halloween and the Hoyas...and The Fresh Prince!

This morning, John Lim, a student worker in the Sports Information office relayed to us the story of how his family came to America 10 years ago on Saturday. His family arrived in New York and his first vision of America as a young boy was seeing people dressed as superheroes and running around in a variety of other wild costumes. He thought this country was some kind of crazy play land with freedoms beyond belief until his parents explained the idea of Halloween to him. I think that type of experience would have had some very strange lasting effects on myself, to the point I'd possibly still wear a cape and spandex often. John seems to have gotten past that...Gotta love this time of year!



The field hockey team closes its season this weekend with morning games on Saturday and Sunday at the William I. Jacobs Recreational Complex. Louisville comes to town first on Saturday when the Hoyas will look to score its first goal against the Cardinals in three matches at 10 a.m.


On Sunday, the Hoyas host Radford in the season-finale at 11 a.m. It is also Senior Day, as Kristen Volpe, the lone senior on the squad, will be honored prior to the game. The pre-game ceremony will be fairly short, but no less meaningful. Volpe is the first GU field hockey player to play her entire career in the BIG EAST, she's also one of the more decorated players in the past few years, picking up a few conference honors along the way. She talked a bit about her experiences as the team's only senior and playing with such a young team in her final two seasons on this weeks' Hoya Insider when she sat down with Jake Serwer. Be sure to check that out! With two games left Volpe still has a shot to become just the fourth Georgetown player this decade to score 10 goals, joining Elena Elster, Jessica Quinn and Katie Lacheman.  


Georgetown volleyball will travel up I-95 on Sunday to take on Villanova at the Jake Nevin Field House in Villanova, Pa., before returning home next weekend for its own Senior Day. It will be an opportunity to snap a six-game conference losing streak for the Hoyas after falling to South Florida a week ago. The Hoyas defeated Villanova last season, 3-0 as Vanessa Dorismond had a strong performance with nine kills, while hitting .500. Jessica Hardy had a double-double with 10 kills and 11 digs. This year's Villanova squad has been strong, holding opposing squad's to a .179 hitting percentage. The Wildcat's Kim Maroon is leading the conference in digs averaging 6.03 per set. The Hoyas Tory Rezin, who is aiming to move into the top two in school history for digs in a season, is fourth in the BIG EAST with 4.24 per set.


Finally, because I like all of you, I wanted to leave you with the greatest Halloween song ever recorded. "Nightmare on My Street" by DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince (I had that on a record album as a child!!). Though all I could find was this video of a green screen with the song...

So I'm going to leave this life-changing video of Bobby Brown (another personal favorite) and Mike Tyson singing "Monster Mash" to help set the holiday spirit...ENJOY!
