Oh well,

It's been four-and-a-half months since I posted anything here.

I guess if you have nothing to say, it's best not to say anything at all.

The Chris Harris NCAA "Sheet of Integrity"

Because you demanded to see it. Here's my NCAA "Sheet of Integrity."

Yeah, I picked St. Mary's, George Mason, and Winthrop to go to the regionals. Sue me.

Yes, this is probably "digitally enhanced."

But it's still pretty bad ass. (Especially the part on the freeway overpass.)

Viva Joga Bonito!

The Wing Bowl is still decadant and depraved.

We arrived in the parking lot of Citizens Bank Park at around 5:30AM. It was cold and drizzling. As we walked from the car, shotgunning my third Coors Light, I saw the damnedest thing. At the corner of the Spectrum, huddled against the entrance, there was a man lying down. Passed out. Smashed. No, he wasn't homeless -- or at least he didn't look homeless.

A few moments later, his buddies came over to wake his drunk ass up. Turns out, he and his buddies from Drexel had been tailgating since 10:00 the previous night, and this poor fellow (who probably didn't look any older than 19) had had a few too many sips of ol' grandpa's cough syrup.

Welcome to the Wing Bowl: "The world's largest indoor sausage party." Where else will you find 20,000 (mostly) men gather before the crack of dawn to see a chicken wing eating contest?

Yeah, right. The Wing Bowl is much more than just a bunch of fat dudes gorging on chicken. It's an excuse to get smashed on a weekday and ogle skanky women from various "gentlemen's" clubs/steak houses.

If you're not from Philadelphia, you'll never get, nor completely understand the Wing Bowl. So I won't even try. Here are some clips from FOX 29.

A.J. Daulerio (formerly of Deadspin) of Philadelphia Magazine filed this report.'s Wing Bowl coverage.

"Grad School Drop Out" is not the name of the next Kayne West album.

After only three classes, I'm dropping out of graduate school.

But, as the kids like to say, it's all good. From the moment I stepped foot into my first class, the doubts began to set in.

"Why am I here?"

"What is the point of this?"

"This isn't what I thought I signed up for."

"Do I really want to spend the rest of my life as a pencil-pushing government bureaucrat?"

I guess it's best to trust your gut instinct if something doesn't feel right. And with that, I came to the decision that I'd better cash in my chips now before I hit the point of no academic return.

So, is anybody looking to hire a newly-minted econ major?
