In case you haven’t noticed, change is in full swing here at Drexel’s University City Campus. And sometimes, change can be annoying.

The crowd literally could not stay seated.

In the middle of an extremely disheartening season for the Phillies, it appears as though star shortstop Jimmy Rollins’ baby girl couldn’t have come at a more inconvenient time. Rollins’ wife, Johari, gave birth to their first child, Camryn Drew Rollins, on the eve of the Phillies’ game against the Washington Nationals May 21. Typically, [...]
Didier Drogba steps back, takes the penalty to his left and displaces Manuel Neuer, who jumps to Drogba’s right.

Bayern Munich went [...]

Based on the classic Hasbro board game, “Battleship” hit theaters May 18 in an action-packed tribute to the U.S. Armed Forces.
