Halloween day at Mary Sue Cole-
man's house, not a creature was stirring,
not even a mouse. All of that changed
when the Bocce ball club showed up on
her doorstep. Sad to find that the Michi-
gan president and honorary club mem-
ber could not come out to play, the club
left a nice letter and a bag of goodies on
her doorstep before playing a game of
bocce ball on her lawn.
"This (was) the finest event of the
year at this university or any other uni-
versity," senior Ben Goldman said.
This game of bocce on the president's
lawn was hardly Halloween hijinx, but
more of the norm for the two year-old
club which has played all over the cam-
pus. They play in hallways and on the
Diag, in snow and rain and even at spe-
cial events like Coleman's inauguration.
"We get together when we all want to
play bocce, and it usually results in some
wackiness," Junior Dan Mullkoff said.
Bocce ball is a sweet marriage
between lawn darts and curling, despite
the fact it predates both. The club is

divided into teams: The Sweeticles with
the green balls and the Bootylicious
with the red. The goal of the game is to
get your teams four balls as close to the
target, called the pallina, as possible.
The team closest to the pallina gets a
point for each ball they have closer than
their opponents. The game is over once
a team has 12 points.
"I'm always on Sweeticles!" sopho-
more Christina Deangelo said.
If you can sing Italian like Pavarotti
or can pretend to speak Italian like
Kramer, the Bocce ball club is for you.
The club's two resident Italian speakers,
Deangelo and sophomore Abby Zaija,
will have you yelling "Che cazzo!" at
your bad shots in no time.
"It's a novelty," junior Liz Bair said.
"You get to yell stuff and play a sport
without working up a sweat."
The club can be slightly allusive,
packing up in a small bag that weighs
around 30 lbs and heading off for its
next adventure. But should you hap-
pen to find the Bocce ball club, you
will be greeted with a "Che bella!"
and thrown right into the fire known
as bocce ball.

DETROIT (AP) - Charles Woodson
was embarrassed to lose to the Detroit
Lions. Then, the star cornerback said
Oakland coach Bill Callahan has lost
his team.
"It's no secret at this point," Woodson
said.
Jason Hanson, who kicked three field
goals yesterday in Detroit's 23-13 win
against Oakland, did not take offense to
Woodson's comments.
"We're not very good," Hanson said.
"Our record isn't good and we're play-
ing a lot of backups. They've got a lot
of players and they were just in the
Super Bowl. People are going to say it's
embarrassing to lose to us until we start
putting some wins together."
The Lions (2-6) had lost six straight
and 14 of 15 dating back to last season.
"I'm not going to lie, it's been diffi-
cult,"' said Joey Harrington, who was
13-of-21 for 117 yards with a TD and
an interception.
Detroit turned two turnovers into 10

first-quarter points, and scored 13 more
on its first three second-half possessions.
Oakland (2-6) has lost four straight
and looks nothing like the team that lost
to Tampa Bay in last season's Super
Bowl. The Raiders are off to their worst
start since 1964, when they were 1-7-1.
Does Callahan think he still has the
team?
"No question, I'm very confident,"
Callahan said.
Raiders quarterback Marques Tuia-
sosopo, in his first NFL start in place of
2002 league MVP Rich Gannon, was
sidelined with a left knee injury late in
the first half. Rick Mirer made his first
appearance since playing one game for
San Francisco three years ago.
Tuiasosopo was 6-of-11 for 65 yards,
with an interception on his second pass.
He walked out of the training room
awkwardly with a brace covering much
of his left leg.
"We did an X-ray and it's at least a
sprained ligament," Tuiasosopo said.
