The details may shift as cultures evolve, but the basics of comedy have remained much the same over the march of time. Irish playwright George Farquhar’s The Beaux’ Stratagem debuted shortly before his death in 1707, and updated...

This video contains some very complimentary things about Lazar Hayward in terms of his possible NBA ability. A lot of folks missed the potential of former-Golden Eagle Wesley Matthews who made a splash with the Utah Jazz and therefore are giving an extra look to Marquette players. ...

There was something amusingly ironic about Tuesday night’s Girl Talk show at Marquette University. Maybe it was the Jesuit university students singing, “I love having sex but I’d rather get some head,” and then returning to ...

After losing four games in a row to Villanova by a total of four points, Marquette had their revenge today in the Big East tournament. The Golden Eagles were a preseason pick to finish 12th in the Big East. Now they're heading into the semi-finals of the Big East tournament. They've far surpassed expectations, beaten great teams and basically played out of their heads for months. Finally, peopl...

We went to the Marquette/Georgetown game last night and were rewarded with the Golden Eagles finally managing to pull out a close game against a ranked opponent. Marquette was picked in the preseason to finish 12th in the Big East, so the fact that they were even in these games was a bit of a win, but really, there’s nothing to make you feel good about losing out on two big upsets by a t...

Maybe I’m the only one, but all these decade recaps, “Best of” lists and all the talk of the “aught’s” has kind of taken me by surprise. I just don’t remember this much navel-gazing or discussion at the end of any other decade. I know I’m not that old, but all of this seems so over the top – just SO MUCH.I mean, they’re nostalgic and sometimes fun, don’t get me wrong – ther...

From Scout.com via Trenni's Twitter feed comes some stories about J. Maymon’s father’s over-the-top antics and ridiculous demands and over-involvement in his son’s college career. Everyone saw his outrageous displays by a parent ever. Rumors are that members of the coaching staff told him to cool it and he ignored them and the MU big wigs were not happy. According to Scout:So Tim Maymon show...

Marquette's WASP Drama Is Compelling

By Russ Bickerstaff
The Marquette University Theatre Department opens its season with a production of Phylis Ravel’s Censored On Final Approach. It may be a bit long (the show is some 2.5 hours long,) but Ravel puts together a very compelling drama here. Playwright/Director Phylis Ravel draws the story directly from history. During World War Two, many of the men who served as military pilots were serving oversea...

Marquette Brings WWII Drama To The Stage

By Russ Bickerstaff
Just this past June some 300 surviving WWII Airforce  Service Pilots finally received Congressional Gold Medals. It had been some six and a half decades since they had served. From what I’ve read online, it would appear as though these women didn’t serve in Europe . . . 38 of them were killed in the line of duty though. They were trained to help largely with distribution. Planes would roll ou...

Spectacular in Every Way:

A bash to benefit the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation was simply over-the-top spectacular with fire-eating by Erik Bang!!! and Miss Punch, along with magic by Sir Pinkerton Xyloma; plus the Brew City Bombshells’ sea of bustier-clad lovelies. A racy/lacy runway show featuring Shannon...
