Most collegiate athletes are recruited to join their respected teams, but in many cases a few roster spots remain open to walk-on players. These athletes strive to become members of their team, hoping that someday they may reap the benefits of competing intercollegiatly, don the uniform and hopefully be given the opportunity to participate if their performance is deemed worthy.
Along with all the dramatic wins and disheartening losses throughout the history of Fairfield men's basketball, there is another theme of this team: suspensions. In the past four years, Fairfield has had five suspended players. Jermaine Clark '01, Dan Galvanoni '01, Jeremy Logan '03, Deng Gai '05 and most recently Terrence Todd '06 are all players that have been suspended by the university in the past four years.
The Best: CVSCVS has been on the radar for condoms for some time. Some locations are open 24 hours, and all of them are clean, well-lit, and well-stocked. They also keep the KY nearby, just in case. Their selection of condoms can only be beaten by online establishments, but if you're expecting some tonight, you can't wait for the postal service (and especially, the extremely slow Fairfield Post Office) to get you the protection you need quickly.
The Best: SidetracksSidetracks is home of the nacho-lover's dream: a massive platter, laden with melted cheese, chili, refried beans, sour cream, guacamole, jalapenos, and salsa. Every single nacho is coated with cheese - in fact, there's so much melted goodness that it actually hangs off the plate.
The Best: Joe's American Bar ' GrillJoe's is parent friendly, there's no doubt about that. It's close, it's convenient, it's reasonably priced, and the menu is American style, with enough choices for there to be something for everyone. Their New England clam chowder bread bowl and onion strings are especially good.
The Best: Mo's Wine ' LiquorsWhen I'm buying alcohol, I like to look around. It's not often that I have enough money for much more than a bottle of Andre Spumante ($2.99), but that doesn't mean I can't do a little window-shopping while I'm there, and Mo's certainly has an incredible selection.
The Best: GonzagaWhen you think of Gonzaga, three things come to mind: 1. How do I pronounce it? 2. Big rooms. 3. Closest to Canisius. If you're lazy and like to fill your room with huge beanbag chairs and still have room to park a Lincoln Town Car, Gonzaga is the dorm for you.
The Best: CoconutsCoconuts has leapt from last place last year, to first place this year. Their store is located fairly close to campus, their new release prices have gotten more aggresive, and they have used CDs which can allow students to get even more bang for their buck.
The Best: Your (My) RoomWay to go for the obvious answer. Some of your fellow classmates were a bit more clever, however. Here were some of their picks: Behind Bellarmine, The Grape bathroom, Barone Campus Center, the townhouse shed, the basement of the CUF building, a car, the beach, the chapel (how sinful - and how delightful!), and Beardsley Park.
Undefeated in MAAC. Conference champions. Big expectations for MAAC Tournament. Heartbreak. For the second straight year, the women's soccer team beat Rider in their final regular-season game, only to be upset by them in the first round of the MAAC Tournament.
