The best moment of the Super Bowl this weekend was the moment Missy Elliott took the stage at halftime to remind us a) she’s alive and b) she is one of the most electrifying artists of the last 20 years. We can’t explain why Missy wasn’t headlining, but it didn’t matter. She and left shark stole the damn show.
You know what, maybe it’s better after all that Houston Summers didn’t vote for Thom Tillis (or at all). To demonstrate his belief in the power of the market, Tillis suggested doing away with one of the least controversial rules you’ll find anywhere: the requirement that food service employees wash their hands.
A Minor victory
We don’t want to undercut the coverage this fine publication will produce on the student elections, but The Minor is killing it yet again with its coverage of lesser-known candidates like “2,500-year-old body preserved in an Irish bog” and uncomfortably sensual candidate profiles. Gotta give credit where it’s due.
Wide world of suck
What a terrible weekend in the world of sport. First, UNC lost to Louisville, then Duke upset UVA, then Pete Carroll ruined what promised to be a fantastic Marshawn Lynch press conference and, finally, UNC got demolished at home by Virginia. If this keeps up, we’re going to have no reason to keep a cable subscription.
Keep it real
On the one hand, it’s great that all three SBP candidates are coming out in support of the Kick Out the KKK movement. What’s a little more uncomfortable is how none of these candidates would participate in or help organize the movement but are still perfectly happy to capitalize on the work of those who did.
