You know what's really frustrat-
ing? I mean, really, really frustrat-
ing? We're not talking about the
type of frustration elicited from los-
ing one of your socks in the laundry.
This is levels beyond that.
What frustrates me is people who
say you can't change anything be-
cause of tradition. Namely, things
related to sports. For instance,
should the San Francisco Giants
move to Florida, all you're going to
see is a bunch of boobs from the Bay
Area griping about how they should
have stayed put in cold,-inhospitable
Candlestick Park because of tradi-
tion. I mean, that's just plain goofy.
I admit, I've never been to
Candlestick, but I have seen pictures.
And while you can't quite gauge
temperature from a photograph (or a
televised image for that matter), I
have come to understand that it gets
pretty chilly in the 'Stick. When it's
chilly, the fans don't turn out. If fans
don't turn out, the Giants don't make

call myself a financial wizard, I am
of the opinion that if you are not
making money in your current state,
a change is in order.
As Giants owner Bob Lurie prob-
ably does not possess the ability to
a.) pick up Candlestick and move it
somewhere warmer, or b.) build a
space heater large enough for a
space such as Candlestick Park, his
hand is forced.
But if and when the Giants do
leave, a bunch of doofi (plural of
doofus) will probably picket Lurie's
house and say things like, "What
about tradition? Who cares if
Candlestick is a money pit? Trad-
ition, Bob, tradition!"
If tradition were so important, we
Americans would still be but 13
wimpy colonies, answering to the
beck and call of those crumpet-eat-
ing English. If tradition were so im-
portant, instead of sitting back and
watching. our large screen TVs, we
would be huddled around a fireplace,
listening to stories about our ances-
tors (Presumably, it would only be a
few stories, because it would go
against tradition to use new stories).
You see, my friends, particularly
those from the greater Bay Area,
tradition isn't all it's cracked up to
be. Let the Giants go.

"The defense had a meeting after
the (William and Mary) game be-
cause we were doing a few things
wrong," senior defender Mary Beth
Bird said. "We worked out some
problems that we were having, and
we definitely played better than

Michigan had 22 shots inside the
circle against Rutgers, while the
Lady Knights managed only three.
The Wolverine defense made things
easier for freshman goalkeeper
Rachel Geisthardt, who secured a
shutout in her first collegiate start.
"The score was a little deceiv-
ing," Bird said. "I think that we
played better than it showed."
The Wolverines' team consis-
tency seemed to be lacking against
William and Mary, but this is typical
of early season play. However, their
play against Rutgers is an indication
of better things to come.
"We had a few problems as a
team against William and Mary,"
Bird said. "But we played together
